Monday Ramblings

mondayramblings

I am a mess. Is anyone else out there a mess right now? That’s why I just need a little dose of Monday ramblings. A little time to get a few things off my chest. Taking pen to paper for a vent sesh. Hell yes!

And I don’t judge.. if you need to do the same, please do. I am a good listener.

So first up, I am OVER sweets. Ergh! My tummy is agreeing with me. I had 3 holiday parties this weekend and while they were SO MUCH FUN and I am glad I went, I ate a little too many of the chocolates, cake things, and cookies (and more). My digestive system is saying, “WHOA there buddy… let’s use this week to reboot.”

So I listen. I started the morning with a warm bowl of oatmeal and dinner is brewing in the crockpot as we speak. And this morning I did restorative yoga. In fact, it was “Yoga for Headaches” since I did wake up with a headache today. Can you get hangover from too much sugar? If so, I can officially say I have a sugar hangover. And it may be worse than an alcohol hangover. Seriously! But, the yoga sesh helped BIG TIME and I am almost sugar hangover headache free.

Secondly, I am so overwhelmed with work right now. What is up with the loads of work this time of year?! Actually, I know.. I just don’t want to admit it. I work for a benefits type of company so many of our clients start new programs January 1st. So, that means December is the catch up, prepare, plan, and get everything done month. EEK! I love the holiday season and want to savor every bit of it, but some days I can’t help but wish for the weekend.

The bright side is that the “busy”ness should just be another week or so (I keep telling myself). And I WILL do my holiday fun things like look at Christmas lights, listen to Christmas music, watch a few favorite movies, see some type of Christmas show (like a musical or play), see snow, and give lots of love and time to family and friends. Oh I really do love this time of year!

Third up is a question… need your opinion. I am obsessed with workout DVD’s and noticed that Shaun T just came out with Insanity Max 30. Do I get it now or do I wait? I have been doing Piyo lately and love it, but want need a little more cardio in my life too (you know, for the endorphins) so am looking to change up my workout routine a bit. I have been spending a lot (haven’t we all) so am trying to decide if I buy it for myself now.. it’s $119.85 or if I wait until after the new year. What would you do?

Thank you for letting me ramble today! Have a wonderful Monday, dear friends. 

  • Yes, I definitely believe you can get a sweets hangover, no fun. Not gonna lie, I already ordered max 30, I think it looks awesome, can’t wait for it to get here 😉

    • I think I may just have to order it! I am impatient when it comes to new workout things. 🙂
