Monday, Monday

Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Mine was pretty uneventful, didn’t do much but errands and stuff. I’m just happy for the beautiful weather forecasted for this week, it’s going to make my walks so much more enjoyable.

So, this morning I decided to have a single serving size of honey nut cheerios instead of my usual regular cheerios, it’s a ¾ cup prepackaged serving. I figured it was okay, it only had 9 grams of sugar, and I had it with skim milk and sliced strawberries. Ummm, big mistake. It tasted way too cloyingly sweet, and actually made me nauseous. I even broke into a little sweat! My sugar intake in two months has been MINIMAL, so I guess my body got used to that. Well, I won’t be eating honey nut cheerios any time soon.

I’m kind of going through a fashion dilemma when it comes to my pants. The majority of my pants are way too big. I have maybe three that fit me well. I have some in the closet that are not even close to fitting yet, but maybe in a month or so. I don’t really have the money for new pants with everything I have going on right now. Now, this is a “good” problem to have, but I’ll just have to look a little funny for a while!

Well, I plan on taking things up another notch for this week with exercise. Last week, I exercised 6 days in a row, but didn’t push myself as much as usual from being sick. Now I’m ready to get it done!


  1. Oh honey, I have the exact same fashion dilemma. I can get around big shirts, but the pants are getting annoying. It's also frustrating that depending on what brand/style/etc pants I try on, I wear anything from 14W-18R. UGH.

  2. Isn't it funny how our tastes change so quickly?? I think I was also be grossed out if I tried to have a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios right now.

    And yes, clotehs not fitting is a good problem to have but boy, it does stink!!! Maybe set a goal weight (a few pounds away) and treat yourself to a new pair of pants that fit!

  3. I always eat 2 cups of Multi-Grain Cheerios for breakfast with 1 cup 2% milk. They are only 110 calories for a cup, and I love them.

    Ugh, don't you hate that? I am having the exact same problem! But I don't have the money to get anymore andI'm hoping that I'll be able to fit in the smaller ones so what's the point anyway!?

  4. My pants are still wearable, just really loose. Have to start saving now for a pair or two!

    You are doing great!

  5. Don't you just love it when your clothes are getting too big for you? Great NSV Mina!
