Monday Alarms are the Devil

by Meghann on August 10, 2009

When my alarm went off this morning, I did not want to believe it was Monday! Mondays always tend to be the hardest when getting out of bed. πŸ™

I pulled myself together and ran 4 miles at a 9:15 pace. When I returned back to the condo I completed level 3 of the 30 day shred.

I was very thankful this morning featured the return of Oikos yogurt to my life. πŸ™‚


When Anne and I were at the health store yesterday I was drooling over the yogurt. I wanted to eat it all right then and there and almost had it for dinner last night. It had been 4 very sad days with no yogurt in my life.

I filled 1/2 a cantaloupe with Blueberry Oikos yogurt and this sample packer of Nature Path’s Pumpkin Raisin Crunch sample I picked up at the health market swag-a-palooza yesterday.


The cereal had a great crunch to it, but the raisins were a little hard to chew, a little stale maybe?


Overall it was a yummy, filling breakfast and exactly what I was craving!

I have a lot of work to get to before I leave for the Boston on Thursday (!!), I guess that means its time to get to work!!!

Great bfast! I had some cantaloupe as well! I think I could eat a whole one every day πŸ™‚ Good luck with all the work

I bought a cantaloupe yesterday for this very reason, can’t wait to give it a try!
Have a great Monday Meghann!

I agree, Monday alarms are so much worse than the rest of the week… at least you got a great breakfast!

ugh, I’m having trouble transitioning out of weekend mode as well. The best part of Monday morning is a yummy breakfast! I love eating cantaloupe halves πŸ™‚

Bah I know – Monday alarms are the worst! I had such a hard time dragging myself out of bed. Oh well, I guess each day is one closer to the Summit!!! πŸ™‚

Four days without yogurt is indeed four sad days!
It’s definitely hard to get up for a workout on Mondays, but I always end up somehow feeling energized for the whole week when I do…

Ugh, I had better get to work as well. πŸ™

i need to try putting yogurt and granola in half a cantaloupe. that has got to be so filling!

Monday alarms are horrible. In fact I want to crawl back into bed right now!

12 ksgoodeats August 10, 2009 at 9:59 am

What a great breakfast! Sounds so refreshing πŸ™‚

You always have such eye appealing breakfasts. I love the use of the cantaloupe as your bowl. Mother natures pottery πŸ™‚

Monday morning alarms are the devil!
It’s always so hard to get out of bed, but I feel that once I’m up and running, it’s fab.

15 Taylor Leigh August 10, 2009 at 10:29 am

I hate Mondays too! But just think… this week will fly by b/c of your exciting weekend coming up!!

I really must try this melon bowl thing–tastes delicious I am sure, and no dishes to do!

17 Andee (Runtolive) August 10, 2009 at 10:50 am

That cereal reminds me of Raisin Bran. Breakfast looks delicious!

18 Matt August 10, 2009 at 11:20 am

Lol I am actually kind of glad it is Monday. No class all week for me!

On the bright side, at least you had a great breakfast! πŸ™‚

20 Carolyn August 10, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Maddie looks like she had a blast!

21 Brandi August 10, 2009 at 12:08 pm

ha, i feel the same way about alarm clocks on ANY day πŸ™‚

22 Juicy Jessy August 10, 2009 at 12:46 pm

lol i ate the exact same thing today πŸ˜‰

23 Rosey Rebecca August 10, 2009 at 12:55 pm

I know what you mean about getting up on Mondays! My alarm scared the crap out of me this morning! lol At least you have a short work week though!

24 Kate August 10, 2009 at 1:02 pm

I have bought that cereal so many times because the flavor combo just sounds so GOOD…but I’ve never really gotten into it either. I think I expect it to taste a little more like granola/crunch, but it’s def more like a cereal & a little stale. I hope it helped you truck through your morning still!

25 Lauren August 10, 2009 at 2:01 pm

I love the flavor of that cereal, but I have the same complaint about the raisins. It sure does look lovely in the cantaloupe!

26 Tay August 10, 2009 at 8:58 pm

haha glad to know I’m not the only one who had a hard time chewing those raisins!
