Those Monday Blahs

Mondays are not my best of days. Okay, I’m a right gumpy b*tch come Monday morning: slow to wake up, wishing it was Saturday again, and dragging in general. Then there’s that whole motivation thing which isn’t at a high point. Oh, did I mention the generous measure of guilt over not following my plan as well as I could over the weekend? Yeah, that’s Monday wrapped up in a nutshell.

As it goes by weekends, this one was pretty unusual. See, I’m usually not the best about sticking to my “on plan” guns any given Saturday-Sunday period, but *this* weekend I worked out both days, managed to drink enough water (and a little too much beer – HAHA!), and stayed pretty close to my DPT (Daily Points Target). Weird, man, seriously weird.

Funny then, I should still feel that inevitable weekend guilt upon waking up this morning. WTF?!? Is it spillover from other weekends when I seriously screwed the pooch? Do I just need to feel guilty about something? Because there’s plenty of other good sh*t to feel bad about.

Eh, Whatever.

Somehow, I need to make Mondays more productive and less grumpy/guilt-ridden, whether it’s waking up early enough to work out or just getting back into my Meatless Monday habit (yeah, that stopped a while back – did I mention?). Maybe doing both? I dunno, but something’s gotta give.

And, speaking of being productive, I need to get my butt back on my Countdown to ONEderland Challenge. Wondering if I ought not have a specific “Goal Date”, and just update every week until I hit that magical 1XX number. Might be more of an incentive to keep posting about it.

Things to think about.

Anyhow, Saturday morning I woke up early enough that I decided to head out to the southside of San Jose and go visit my old WW leader at her 10:30 a.m. meeting. Wow, I’ve missed her A LOT. A LOT A LOT. Like so much a lot that I decided it’s worth waking up that early every Saturday just to attend her meetings because my Monday night leader SUCKS. Well, she sucks in comparison. Only thing is it’s a HUGE meeting. Seriously, I’ve never attended a meeting that had 50+ people in attendance. Yes, it’s the New Year, but they meet in a ridiculously large room that leads me to believe – even without the New Year Resolutionists – that meetings stay large year round. Dunno how I feel about being just one of so many, but I think it’ll be worth it.

And since we’re talking about WW, and I’ve gotten out of the habit, here’s this week’s Weigh-In Stats:
