Yes, thank God it's Monday - I was all relaxed from the weekend. My stress level was way down for two whole days.
Now it's heading to the moon.. yay!

I totally agree, if I'm busy on a weekend it usually involves eating out or alcohol, if I'm not busy it just seems like all I can think about is what I eat and when is the next time I will eat. It's much better to have work distracting me and to have only the healthy snacks that I bring with me.

Mondays are not always my favorite days.... I teach high school and sometimes the kids are mildly squirrelly on Monday.. but your perspective is good.. it's easier to stay on track and I actually get more activity on many weekdays.. I look forward to my planning period walk. So enjoy the day!

I no longer work because of health problems from stage IV breast cancer, so Mondays are not a big deal to me.

When I was working though, I looked forward to Mondays; my days off were Tuesday and Wednesday, so Monday was my "Friday".

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

you're not alone.
many people find it easier to deal with the regulated, work-a-day schedule, if that's their lifestyle (working m-f)

I totally agree!! I prefer the structure of the week, its a lot easier to stick to a routine. Its so much harder to do that at the weekend.

I'm right there with you on this one. The weekends are a killer especially with a husband who wants to continually eat out! I have much better control during the week.
