Sometimes on Monday mornings, I feel like taking my boxing gloves to work might actually help me to get through the day. I love my job – it’s not the work or the people. It’s something about Mondays themselves. They are just more difficult to get through than other days. Waking up on a Monday is harder than usual after being able to sleep in for two days – and going to bed (much) later on Friday and Saturday nights doesn’t help either.
So recently I’ve been trying to do things to trick myself out of the Monday funk. I’ve been picking out my outfits for Monday’s on Sunday nights (this actually isn’t new for me since I’ve been laying out my outfits the night before since I could walk). But the Monday outfits haven’t been the just grab your go to jeans and the sweater on top of your sweater pile type of outfits. They have been ultra fab (according to moi) looks – like this one with men’s pants (literally I had no idea what the sizing meant when I bought these bad boys), leather bomber jackets (because bomber jackets are *it* you guys, trust me) and crop tops (because it’s that time of year again YAY). I’ve also tried spicing up my Monday mornings with favorite workouts so that I start the week energized. This morning it’s a boxing class for me – so if you see me today and I’m smiling / not moving my arms too much that’s why. This past year I’ve gotten way more into boxing – it’s a super fun workout that doesn’t feel like a chore. Plus it’s a great way to get out any pent up energy when people in your life do really stupid sh*t. Which if you are a girl in your mid 20’s, happens. So rather than giving your *friend* a high five – in the face – with a chair. Go to a boxing class and punch a guy wearing padding. It’s way fun and no one gets hurt.
Happy Monday you guys – show today who’s boss – oh, and wear kewl clothes!
