Monday, Monday

Back to work this morning. Ugh. The weekends go by too quickly, don't they?

I had a quiet night last night and was asleep by about 10 I think.

I wasn't at all hungry when I woke up this morning, which is usual after a day of "heavy" food so I just had a Carnation Instant Breakfast and I'll go over to Loblaws at lunch and pick up a frozen entree for lunch or a fresh salad...depends what I feel like when the time comes.  My blood sugar was good all day yesterday and fasting this morning was 6.1 which means that, foodwise, yesterday was a success. I didn't get any exercise in, but I knew I wouldn't so I don't feel badly about that.

I have a doctor's appointment right after work so I won't be getting home until later. I think I'll just pick up a roast chicken from Sobey's or Costco and make some salad/rice to go with it when I get home. The boys love the chicken and we use the leftovers for their lunches or soup the next day.  It's quick, easy and still healthy and reasonably priced considering it feeds four of us with leftovers!

It was dark when I left for work this morning and it will most likely be dark when I am driving home. I hate this part of Fall/Winter. It feels like I am always in the dark and completely miss the daylight. I have to make a huge effort to make sure I get outside during the day otherwise I start to feel...almost claustrophobic from all the darkness, you know?

Have a great Monday and I'll check back with you all later tonight.

Today's quote, perfect for Monday morning!

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. I love those chickens too. So much so that in the past I didn't have leftovers, haha. Some woman at my weight watcher meeting was complaining about dieting being so expensive before and another woman said-not if you are eating proper serving sizes, so true :o)
