Hard to believe it's already Monday......the weekends are simply flying by lately aren't they?
After a long lazy weekend I tend to dread the jarring sound of the mercilessness alarm clock. Since
'breaking up with Monday' is not really option for most of us, other strategies are needed. I've learned that being prepared is half the battle and I've picked up some tricks along the way.
1-Set the coffee (or tea) maker on timer for 15 minutes before you need to get up. The brewing process is aromatic and somehow it makes you feel like you aren't the only one awake at that hour.
2-Lay out clothing, shoes, even accessories and jewelry, the night before. On a super busy week I will often select all my work or event outfits on Sunday so that I'm not left in the 'nothing to wear' panic.

3-Think ahead about breakfast, snacks and lunch~especially if you brown bag it. This morning I made these delicious mini egg frittas for brunch. They are pure egg, cheesy, veggie goodness and super easy. I made a double batch so we would have enough for a couple of breakfasts this week and froze a few for another week. I also like to load snack size baggies of toasted almonds or pistachios for my purse or desk. Green apples hold up well so I'll take 3 or 4 at the beginning of the week and put on the table in my office (for me or a friend). I always keep a supply of my favorite healthy frozen meals by Kashi, in the freezer at work, just in case I didn't have time to make something at home.
4. If you can muster the courage-a work out or yoga session is always the best way to get you wide awake and ready to take on the day. Hello endorphins!!
Good luck with the reentry to the work week. I see the new, super heavy Vogue-Fall Fashion Edition- has arrived. I wonder if lifting it will count as a work out. Maybe that will get those endorphins flowing....or maybe it's just the fall fashions. Either way, looks like some fun 'homework' tonight as a
reward for a busy Monday.
