Monday Blues

by Meghann on July 13, 2009

Ewww…. it’s Monday. 🙁

All Monday’s aren’t that bad, its just sad to think its the beginning of a full 5 day work week. I’ve been enjoying short weeks for too long, 5 whole days just seems too long. I know.. I’ve just been spoiled. 😉

I may have grudgingly made my way to work, but I had no problem getting out of my bed to run. I felt good, so I took a longer morning route today and ran an easy 6 miles. A good run always give Mondays a brighter light.

It was back to week day basics for breakfast with a nice comforting bowl of cereal for breakfast.


  • 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch
  • 1/2 cup Kashi Strawberry Fields
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Strawberry Yogurt O’s
  • Oikos Plain Yogurt
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries


It was a very hearty bowl of cereal that will hopefully give me the energy I need to start this week off right.

Ugh!! I hear ya on the Monday thing. I went for a 6 mile run this AM too! Complete with 1 mile of hill sprints. Nothing like a good heart pounding run to make to Monday seem more managable!

Have a great day!

I hear you about Monday, and it’s storming here too. Doesn’t make me want to get out of bed!

I love working out in the morning but for some reason Monday’s are the worst for me and I don’t always make it up :/

Hey Meghann!

I wish I was running 6 miles in the morning.. I think I would just need to wake up earlier (obviously). Good for you!! I might make a plan to give it a shot this week. And you can be sure I’d post about it :).

Thanks for the motivation!

at least your run got the week started on the right foot! 🙂

Morning runs always make my day a little better! Especially now that I’m able to run a little bit again 🙂 Your yogurt looks so fluffy and yummy!

9 Erica July 13, 2009 at 10:16 am

I will be defintely be paying attention the live streaming- I am SO sad I can’t be there!! Have fun 😉 Mondays are so tough. I have been dreading this one big time since it meant the official end of my vacation

Hope your Monday is a good one!
Love your berry filled breakfast!

The best thing about a Monday is that after it’s over, the rest of the week is plainsailing then before you know it, it’s the weekend!

12 Mandy A July 13, 2009 at 10:50 am

I agree on Mondays!! I’m feeling it today! I usually like starting my Mondays off with a work out – but I didn’t sleep well at ALL last night… so that didn’t happen! I’ll have to do it tonight!

Love your breakfast!! Yummy!!!

I am going to Florida for my brother’s wedding while the summit is happening… I won’t be able to be there or check out the live stream 🙁

13 Matt July 13, 2009 at 10:52 am

Yeah Monday’s kind of suck. I wish it was still the weekend!

14 brandi July 13, 2009 at 11:41 am

i hope you have a good monday! starting out with a good run is definitely a good way to start the week!

15 Lindsey (Mrs. LC) July 13, 2009 at 11:50 am

haha I just checked the questions and there was one that made me crack up. I’ll have to think of some good ones! (Or ridic ones and post as anon). 😉 I had so much fun yesterday!

Random – when you were in NC recently was it really cold at night?

16 Island Girl Eats July 13, 2009 at 11:58 am

Such a nice way to start off the week by having a run. Though should make you happy for the whole day!!!

17 Allie M. July 13, 2009 at 12:05 pm

Hey Meghann!

Thanks for being my #1 comment! You sure were quick! I wanted to mention this last week before I was officially blogging….but I loved your Bikini Confidence post. Especially the part about your body’s ability to hold a plank for a minute and a half. You are an inspiration and you remind me to feel comfortable in my own skin. Thanks!

cute bowl!

19 Courtney July 13, 2009 at 12:53 pm

That’s so amazing that you’ll be streaming live all day long! WOWZA 😀 ROCKIN THE BLOG WORLD.

20 Sarah July 13, 2009 at 1:21 pm

I was pretty sure it was Sunday when I woke up. What a disappointment that I had to get out of bed and do stuff!

I am so excited that the blog summit will be streamed on the web! I wanted to go so much, but the timing was bad 🙁

21 Brenna July 13, 2009 at 6:44 pm

I am excited about the blog conference and all the great ideas that will undoubtedly generate from such a unique forum.

I am still transitioning into a healthier, more active lifestyle (although if I’ve learned anything so far it’s that this will forever be a work in progress!). I am curious what a weekly grocery shopping list looks like, and where you go for various purchases. i.e do I need to shop at the health food store more or are there substitutions at your average grocery? Sort of a dorky question but any suggestions would be great!

22 Madelin July 13, 2009 at 7:28 pm

It is so refreshing that you work full time, 5 days a week. I do too and I can definately relate to this post :(. Bring on Friday!

23 Kailey July 13, 2009 at 8:35 pm

that TJ Strawberry O cereal is a total addiction for me. I had to stop buying it because it was just too good. I would finish a box in five days…

24 roseyrebecca July 13, 2009 at 10:02 pm

I love how you mix your cereals. I need to start doing that!

25 Anna July 13, 2009 at 10:15 pm

There is nothing yummier to start off the day than berries, cereal & yogurt… in my humble opinion 🙂
