Long Mondays

I think Mondays may be the busiest day of the week for me, because I usually have:

  • work 9 to 5 (ok, usually 6pm-ish)
  • zumba
  • dinner
  • blog

I usually stay a little later at work and stay late at Zumba on Mondays, so my whole day ends a little later. I usually end up eating dinner around 9 or 9:30pm on Mondays…eeks! It’s almost midnight now, so I’m going to keep this short.


I was running a little later than expected today, so I packed not only lunch, but breakfast, too.

I brought some Oikos (*), which I enjoyed with some homemade maple-cinnamon granola. For lunch, I had some of yesterday’s lentil soup, along with a piece of lightly-real-buttered-toast.


Luckily, I always have Starbucks Monday to look forward to. And for Starbucks Monday, I got a grande gingerbread soy latte. I accidentally have left my re-chargeable Starbucks card at home for the last two weeks and it’s really costing me! I’m supposed to get the upgrades (syrup/soy) for free, so I feel like I’m pouring money down a drain. Luckily, I remembered tonight and have already returned the card to my wallet. 🙂

Zumba was extra fun tonight because I’ve been reunited with my new Zumba shoes! Ok, so they’re not the official Zumba shoes (they do have their own tennis shoes), but these are the shoes I’ve gotten to wear to Zumba class.

I’ve been meaning to do a post about them. May-haps I’ll have time later this week?


Anywho, class was fab! I love starting my week off with a happy workout!

How do your Mondays usually go?

  1. I don’t like Mondays much. I usually skip the gym on Mondays because it is just too tiring after the busy weekend and slow,long day of work. I workout on weekends so Monday is my off day. I head home from work and cook dinner and get things done around the house.

  2. Are those Nike Frees? I think I have the same ones in a different color! I just saw an add in Fitness (I think) where they were advertising dance frees. You should totally do a post as i’m looking for new Zumba shoes! 🙂

  3. oh my GOSH your Mondays are busy!
    My work day is an almost 12 hour day with the commute and then it’s take care of the toddler and family till I collapse (and blog)

    I JUST GOT the Zumba for Xbox Kinect game. I had never seen or tried a Zumba class (but had heard of it) until now and I LOVE IT…and it’s a kick-butt work out, that ‘s for sure! Good for you.

    I was wondering your thoughts on the game as an instructor…is it authentic, or just a cheap version of the real class???

    Thanks and STARBUCKS MONDAY!!!


  4. That’s a very long day! Mondays usually aren’t too bad. Work is a little slower, and I don’t have anything I have to do in the evenings. Thursdays and Fridays are always my busiest day.

  5. On a Zumbawear note, there was a huge sale @ zumba.com on Black Friday ($36 cargo pants!) that I made the mistake of assuming would be happening on Cyber Monday as well. Now the pants are still on sale but for $50-something. I totally missed out, my mom was 100% ready to order me some official Zumbawear for Christmas but I’m not letting her pay that much 🙁
