It’s another Monday! Another start for the work week and one of the hardest days of the week to get through. I always feel like the weekend just wasn’t long enough and that I could use another day. Sometimes my weekend is so busy I feel like I need a day to get over the weekend also! Either way the weekend is never long enough and Monday soon rolls on up. I have to say that I’ve had a pretty good day even though I felt sluggish through a good majority of it.

For lunch I was good and made sure to just pack my own food for today. Not always so easy because on Sundays I just want to relax and enjoy the rest of my weekend. I went out tonight for happy hour after work which is always a good pick me up for a Monday! Not good for my wallet but I don’t do it very often at all. I also had a light up guppy toy play session at work! Haha…yes it sounds totally weird and it was. My co-worker got a hold of these rubber plastic guppies that had a long stretchy string which you could loop around your finger. Inside each fish was a light up ball that once hit would flash light for a few minutes. We had an afternoon session of playing with bouncy light up guppies! Very entertaining and better than a shot of caffeine!

Those were the highlights of my Monday! Other than that though I worked and the day went on as usual. It’s very tempting on Mondays for me to buy a nice lunch instead of packing. Also, I get lazy and would much rather drive to work than bike. I was good on the lunch but not so good on the driving. I wasn’t feeling 100% yesterday though so I had a legit reason to drive. Just in case I was still feeling under the weather.

The most dangerous part about Monday is the need to impulsively buy something to pick myself up! No matter how much I curb impulse buys the thrill of it really is tempting. I mostly try not to spend too much time on online shopping websites. I know my will power on days like this are much lower since I’m more tired and more likely to give in! I love online shopping because it is so convenient but it’s so dangerous! We all know how easy it is to click and click and end up with a ton of items in your shopping cart.

To avoid giving in to impulse buys on Monday I usually do two things. Avoid online shopping altogether and don’t go to any physical stores. The other things I do is to make sure I pack lunch so that I avoid going out and spending money on food. I’m much more likely to buy something unhealthy or grab a dessert if I go out for lunch on a Monday. I know that’s how I am so I try my best to avoid it in the first place.

What are things you tend to do on a Monday?

    Wohooo! TGIM :)
    Just love Mondays, well, mainly because most times I get an extended weekend to sleep in. Even when am not sleeping in I enjoy it, the buzz coming back, going back to work and sharing crazy weekend stories. The energy is just there to dream big and conquer the week.
    I don’t have Monday habits per se!
