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:

  • ice
  • 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?

  1. ohhh gosh, i completely understand where you are coming from in this post..i’ve had my decent share of no good terrible days and they suck! I usually fume most of the day and then vent for a while to Kevin or go for a good run and I feel sooo much better 🙂 I’m glad you are considering today a clean slate and there is no better fuel then PB/Banana sandwiches to do just that!

    your grilled cheese and tomato soup is also my idea of awesome comfort food! Wings also help too 🙂 and french fries…and chocolate. hahaha

  2. Totally understand those days ugh! I like to be left alone when I’m grumpy for sure. I love chicken wings as comfort food. I’m so glad you like that soup – I have been looking for a delicious tomato soup.

  3. I hate having days like that – I totally know where you’re coming from. When I’m upset I like to vent it out to Todd but sometimes he doesn’t say what I want to hear so before I vent I remind him to not say anything and just listen, haha!

    Ahhh tomato soup and grilled sandwiches are the ultimate comfort foods! I also love mac n cheese and pizza! 🙂

  4. I’m a total venter. If I have a bad day or if something crazy happens, I just HAVE to tell someone. I’m sure I annoy my co-workers (and my mom) to no end with my rants.
