Monday Blahs

by Meghann on October 5, 2009

How NOT to start your Monday morning…

  • Chasing your puppy out from under the bed that she just realized is a great place to hide because you can’t quite reach all the way under.
  • Getting stuck in traffic and waiting at the same red light through 3 light changes.
  • Waiting in an elevator for 5 minutes before finally realizing its broken and not moving anywhere.
  • Arriving at your desk only to discover the AC is broken and it’s hotter inside the office then it is outside the building.
  • Realizing everyone who has a lap top is encouraged to work at home while you’re still chained to the desk in an over heating office.

Someone has a case of the Mondays….

So much for starting my week off on the right foot. For now I just have to breathe and pray to god they fix the AC before the temps outside really start to rise. It’s not a good day for the weatherman to inform me there’s a high of 91 with not a cloud in the sky. Grrr….

Luckily my Monday didn’t start going south until I started to head out the door of my apartment. Before then it was quote lovely.

I woke up sleepy and did some arm weights and abs moves, then ate a grand breakfast.


Just an FYI to any Orlando locals – Honeycrisp Apples are on sale at Target this week for $1.49/ lb!! I bought 5 yesterday and enjoyed one this morning with a little cinnamon and almond butter.


I also heated up a piece of Megan’s Pumpkin Swirl bread. Yum!


Then all hell broke loose.

Now if only I can go back in time and spend my Monday at home eating that wonderful breakfast. Please pray for me that they turn the air on soon. I don’t do well in extreme heat situations!

I find it quite funny that you and your sister almost had the same breakkie this morning 😛

and wow…in that heat they should be sending their employees to work at home (or just goooo home) till it comes back on. That can’t be a great work environment!

good luck!

Hey – it can only get better from here! 🙂

Boo to no AC. That happened to my office this summer and I was a bitter bear 🙁

4 Leianna October 5, 2009 at 8:51 am

Thats so funny how you and your sister think so alike on breakfasts, great choice!
Stay cool!

Ohh, there is nothing worse than getting to work and finding out working from home was an option!
I hope you’re day gets better. On the bright side it is raining, cold and horrible where I am today. I’m so jealous of your warm weather.

yuck! I’m sorry your day started off on the wrong foot! I hope they get your ac fixed or at LEAST give you guys some fans!

OH NO! That is intense Meghann. Maybe at lunch you can change into a super light super dress? And stop by Walgreens/CVS/etc for a hand fan?

10 Meg October 5, 2009 at 9:42 am

Hope your Monday gets better!

11 runningaroundnormal October 5, 2009 at 10:08 am

I hope your day turns around and they get the AC turned back on!

12 Evan Thomas October 5, 2009 at 10:20 am

Aww, with that breakfast I couldn’t imagine the morning not being swell

13 Diana October 5, 2009 at 10:22 am

Aw, I hope your day gets betters!
And that breakfast looks good. 🙂

14 Lindsay @ bananaandchocolate October 5, 2009 at 10:26 am

That bread looks delish! I hope they get the AC fixed soon. If they don’t is there any chance they will let you go home?

15 Leah October 5, 2009 at 10:30 am

Aw! What a crummy morning! 🙁 *hug*

16 Abby (Abbys Vegan Eats) October 5, 2009 at 10:33 am

Your breakfast looks amazing.. good way to start an otherwise BLAH Monday! 🙂

17 Brandi October 5, 2009 at 10:42 am

i hope the day gets better! we have the same red light thing happen just about every day when we leave work – so frustrating!

18 Erin October 5, 2009 at 11:15 am

I totally hear you on the AC thing – my sister has a saying that you can’t do anything if you’re HHT – hungry, hot, or tired. I fully agree! At least you had a yummy breakfast!?

Hope the Monday gets better for you!

19 Nicci@NiftyEats October 5, 2009 at 12:10 pm

What a crazy morning you had. hope it gerts better though!

20 ClubVeg October 5, 2009 at 12:14 pm

awe, Meghann! such a bummer! pray that it gets better. or at least some BIIIGG clouds roll your way!

21 Matt October 5, 2009 at 12:22 pm

Sorry you are having a rough start to the day 🙁

Sending cold thoughts your way!

22 Katie October 5, 2009 at 12:34 pm

I hope your day gets better! 🙂

Quick question…I know you had talked about doing a post about miles 22-26 of the marathon a few months ago but I wasn’t sure if you ever did? I’m training for my first marathon next month and I would love to hear about your experience! Those last 6 miles are making me nervous 🙂

23 kristin October 5, 2009 at 12:50 pm

honey crisp apples are the best!

i went to trader joes last night to get you some pumpkin goods but they were sold out of EVERYTHING WITH PUMPKIN! I am going to run back this week – will let you know when I send the package! 🙂

24 kristin October 5, 2009 at 12:50 pm

P.S. It is 53 degrees in Cleveland today – I am sorry I dont feel bad for you and your 91 degrees 🙂 lol!

25 carolinebee October 5, 2009 at 1:04 pm

soo weird that your target sells produce!?? haha mine at home is pretty basic- regular groceries but definitely no fresh produce or veggies! Hope they fix the ac!

26 Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now October 5, 2009 at 1:32 pm

Sorry about the a/c. Your puppy sounds like she’s getting too smart!

27 ohsnapitsMegan October 5, 2009 at 4:09 pm

I’m sorry your Monday started out terribly. Sounds like you had a worse one than me. I hope yours turned around!

28 Cara (Cashews and Hummus) October 5, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Another way to NOT start your Monday: Get stung by a bee on your lip! I think it’s a universal bad Monday today…

29 Lizzy October 5, 2009 at 5:27 pm
