The No Good Monday
I just want to start out by saying I like to keep things very positive around here! I am a positive and upbeat person in general so I like that feeling to come through here on the blog! I also dont like to talk about work too much on here, because lets face it… thats not really exciting.
With that being said…I’m breaking the mold for a minute.
Yesterday was a horrible, awful, no good, very bad day (<—– wow, flashbacks… who remembers this book?!)
Let me be more specific (without going into too much detail of course…how does that work?). I had one of those days at work where everything I touched went wrong in some way. I made some mistakes (yes, Im human) and I spent the day fixing them along with some other crap (not mistakes) piled on.
I was so relieved that when I got home from work (late) I sat on my couch and had a vent fest to Torrance, and it felt marvelous. Also I vented to one of my friends in Alaska (and old coworkers) via email who still works for the same company I do up there, so she really could understand my frustration because she understands all the processes and such at work.
Anyway, usually once I vent I can just let it go and I feel better. Im one of those people that has to talk about it immediately when something is bothering me – Im not sure if this is a flaw or not. Im sure Torrance always loves it 😉
But now, the horrid Monday is over and today is a new day. I have a few “overflow” items from yesterday that I will be dealing with today but for the most part I am welcoming Tuesday with open arms.
I am going to officially write it off right now as a bad Monday and move on.
Move on to the important things of course, like the fact that at least I did have some good eats yesterday!
For lunch I was very oddly craving a smoothie, so when I went home I whipped one up. In the mix was:
- 1/2 a banana
- a handful of frozen strawberries
- 2 scoops of visalus mix
- about 3/4 cup almond milk
It was refreshing and super thick – just the way I like it! I also had some pita chips and humus alongside it (what a mix, I know!)
For dinner, I was obviously in the mood for some comfort food.
Cue the grilled cheese and tomato soup.
For my grilled cheese I used some cheddar slices. It was almost too cheesy for me (which I never knew was possible). But it was really good. And of course I had this type of soup:
Best tomato soup ever!
Obviously, I did not make it to group fitness last night, I got home late and was just mentally exhausted to rush around and get there on time! But you better bet I will be heading in there tonight! I could use a good workout session, for sure.
Everyone have a good day, I am ready with my coffee in hand (and PB banana sandwich!) to make today a much better day!
- When was the last time you had one of those bad days?
- When something is bothering you, or you have a bad day, are you one that has to talk about it or do you prefer to just be left alone?
- What is one of your favorite comfort foods?
