Monday...Definitely not a fun day!


It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday

Do ya'll remember that song? Manic Monday, by the Bangles??? Well, it definitely describes how I am feeling today. Now, for any of you that have been reading me any time at all, it is no secret that I loathe Monday's....I am not a morning person for one thing, and getting up in the morning...is always hard for me. Just a little more so on Mondays...

We spend all week, Working for the weekend....and once it gets here....it's gone..poof! In a flash and it's back to Monday again. Last week, I got my ass handed to me on a silver platter here at work....My commercial Manager turned in his notice a few weeks ago, Friday was his last day. Now, I am just an assistant...but, since they have not replaced him....let me repeat...THEY HAVE NOT REPLACED HIM....I must not only do my job, but handle his work load as well....not totally by myself..the branch manager, the Operations Manager, the tech and myself, will all be handling different parts of his job, until they find a replacement. But...it's enough additional work, on top of my own, that I start this work week out with a fair amount of stress...and the desire to already have a stiff drink this morning.
I am already, "Working for the Weekend"....

How was the weekend for everyone? Mine was rather uneventful....Hubby was sick Friday night, so we stayed in...I got caught up on Lost...all I can say about that is What the Hell??? So many questions....a blog post in and of itself, that is for sure...
Saturday, was beautification day for me. I went and got copper highlights in my hair....new haircut....so cute....short/stacked in the back, longer on the sides in the front...I actually went in and told her to "make me hip"....she did at that...I have gotten so many compliments on it....also got my bi weekly mani/pedi..hubby bought me a new party dress, so he was feeling better and we dressed up and went to Indianapolis Saturday night....had lot's of fun...but, I spent all day Saturday preparing to go out, which only made the time out fly by quicker...before I knew it was Sunday...we slept the day away, to only shower/dress and run to pick up kids....

Now...it's Monday...here I am....

I need more coffee.....

Oh...also, weighed myself last night...I am down 15 lbs....my Nutri-system food is gone, I am not reordering it....the food is not that great...I plan on sticking to the same general plan...still have the last five pounds to lose...I know I will have to maintain it...to do so, instead of the Nutri System entree's...I am going to do the same thing, but substitute Special K, Weight Watchers and Lean Cuisine entrees for the Nutri-System, continue to add in my dairy, fruits/vegetables salads, etc...
I think it will work the same. I have changed my whole mind set as far as eating goes. You will lose weight...eating healthy, less calories does work...I have learned as well, you can treat yourself, once a week...but in moderation. I enjoyed dinner out, and some wine...at least once a week, since I started this, still lost weight...
You do have to sacrifice...but, you don't have to give it all up...ok, maybe cheeseburgers/fries....and wings...and margaritas...and Mexican food....crap...I better stop...or I will totally fall of the wagon....I'm going to eat my special K bar now....

Have a great Monday everyone!

Dixiechick...out.

I dread the weekends, they're the only days I work while I'm in school! While everyone around me is saying "Happy Friday" I'm all SHUT UP. LOL!

Will you email me how I can lose weight? seriously!! I want to lose around 8 lbs. I've started walking on the evenings the weather will allow. I think my age/metabolism are having a HUGE effect on me right now. I don't eat THAT much...but can't drop any weight.

My weekend was good...but I'm looking forward to the next one MORE! Chi Town!!

Daddy Forever said...

I don't like Monday's either. I hope your work situation gets better. They at least give you a raise for your extra work. That sucks.

Honeybell...sorry to hear that. I used to work weekends and can totally relate to that as well.

Pissy...so true!

Janet...I live for Friday!

Toni..glad your weekend was fab...too bad they can't last longer...wouldn't it be nice to have a three day weekend, every week..eliminating Monday altogether? Pics of the new do? Maybe..I don't like having my pic taken..but, If I can get husband to snap a shot, I might consider putting one up...

Sicilian...15 lbs, in six weeks..break down to 2-3 lbs a week...cutting calories is great..but you also have to cut out sugars/starches/bread, fried foods, etc....that is what I have been doing....just eating bland actually..lots and lots of water.

Flat...I will sweetie..first chance I get, I will send you a daily food intake, according to Nutri-System...try it for a few weeks, you will lose the weight. I will be in touch.

Daddio..no, they won't give me a raise...at most, some stupid Mark/Kerry bucks..which is fake money, with our regional bosse's pictures on it, that you can save up and redeem for crap stuff out of a catalog...I am not high enough on the totem pole to be compensated fairly.
