Beating the Monday Blues

The only thing worse than a Monday is a rainy Monday, especially one after a lousy night’s sleep.  I kept dreaming that I was drowning.  Not exactly restful.

So, I decided to do things to counteract that today.  I went to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants (by myself, a first for me) and ordered the most amazing guacamole and bean nachos.  I sat there, read my book, and ate at my own pace.  It was blissful.

Unfortunately, this indulgence set me back in my “Beat the Blues” plan.  I was so full after lunch that I couldn’t go home and do pilates like I wanted.  Instead, I made some earl grey tea and watched the latest episode of Ugly Betty (such a fabulous show).

Finally, I felt slightly less like a bloated whale and was able to get in 20 minutes of pilates.

I believe in moderation, so tomorrow, it’s back to eating normal portions at regular times.  But for today, that pile of Mexican food, the book Eat Pray Love, and earl grey tea were just what I needed.

It really is time for this semester to be over.  In one of my classes this afternoon, I wrote down blog ideas and to do lists instead of learning about elliptical conics.  Don’t worry, Mom, I didn’t completely zone out.

If you look at the left side of my page of notes, you will see just how detailed these lists became.  The amount of detail is directly proportional to my boredom.

Well, it’s back to the real world and physics homework for me.  How do you cure your Monday (or Tuesday or Wednesday) blues?

  1. Haha. I have def done that in class before too! Thanks for checking out my blog! Yours looks great too, I will be reading! Also I try to cure the "blues" by watching trashy television shows that require little to no brain power :-)
