Good morning. Not to sound like a wussy, but it’s freezing in Orlando, relatively speaking! It’s 44 degrees! ECK! I’m sure that sounds warm to all the northerners right now, but us southerners aren’t used to it dropping below 60….. ever. 🙂 I hope it’s warmer on my wedding day!
By the way, 47 days until the wedding…. and only 17 days until my bachelorette party in NYC, where I’m sure I’ll really freeze my tail off!
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m the kind of girl who LOVES a good countdown!
I started Monday off right with a warm bowl of oatmeal and a big cup of coffee .
Sorry if you’re sick of reading about oatmeal; it was too cold to have anything else!
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: 1 tablespoon granola, shredded coconut, and 8 chopped pecans.
- No rum or brandy 🙁
And, as mentioned, a piping hot cup of joe.
(I see a second cup in my future).
One of my Monday traditions is writing out my weekly to-do list. In college, I kept a planner, but now I just use a sheet of paper that I tape to my desk.
I also make a separate work-related to-do list.
I think writing out my to-do’s makes me feel calmer on Mondays. Like many people, I tend to feel overwhelmed at the beginning of the work week. Writing down all the things I need to accomplish makes it so much easier for me to focus. Plus, sometimes I realize my workload isn’t as heavy as I thought, which makes me so happy. If I realize it’s worse than I thought, at least I feel like I have a grip on things.
You’ll notice I schedule in workouts. Running is non-negotiable in my world!
