In this Diamond Body Image podcast, Avril and Alex share 5 tips with you to make Monday's not suck.  Hey we have “fun” on the weekends... Free time, being at home, with friends and family, feeling great! Then reality comes back on Monday! When I was still working for the “man” in Corporate America, I would just dread Monday! It got so bad that I started getting the Monday anxiety on Saturday!   To me Monday = Getting up early, dealing with problems, dealing with goals, making calls, trying to set up the week to be successful, oh and let’s not forget, 4 more days of this demanding, I need you every minute of the day career!   At the end of the day I was exhausted and thinking who the hell even has the energy to make dinner?!?   This is way MONDAY sabatoged my weight loss. I would end up getting take out or just running through the drive thru to pick up burgers and fries! How the hell are you going to lose weight that way?   So what is really a “case of the Mondays?”   It is exacty this…. You thinking that it’s Monday! Do you ever have a case of the Wednesday’s? My guess is probably not! Hey it’s hump day (take it for what it is) celebration, “Hey I made it ½ way thru the week!!!!”  Ha, here’s the thing, it’s all in your head!   Change your mindset, change your Monday! Until then here are some things that you can do to make Monday a little better!   How to fix it: Avril’s tips

  1. Prepare dinner for Monday on Sunday- Make it easy on yourself and just plan to relax on Monday. Crockpot’s work great. Throw in a pork loin, chicken, or whatever it is that you are in the mood for. Just imagine coming home to an already cooked, delicious meal. No work, no fuss, just healthy good food!
  1. Embrace what you have- You NEED to start you Monday (and everyday) with gratitude. What do you have, who do you have in your life that you are thankful for? Not everything in your life sucks…. So why are you thinking that way? Do you have a great career that pays your bills, that provides you with the money and the success to live the life you have? Stop being negative nelly and look around to all of the great things that you currently have?
  1. Make it a short day- No I do not mean call in sick, or sneak out early…. What I mean is to schedule your Monday in a way that allows you to take a little longer lunch or just come in a little later. Sometimes when you can control the situation…. It just makes the situation a little easier to deal with until you can find the right way to cope with it.

  1. Get up early- Go to bed earlier on Sunday and get your ass out of bed on Monday. Go do SOMETHING, physical to burn off the anxiety and get your mind in the right place. A workout of cardio stuff has an amazing way of making you feel good, powerful and on top of that take out your aggression on something other than your work.
  1. Have a glass of wine- One or two glasses of wine is not going to kill your weight loss. And let’s be honest, we are adults, over 21, it is natural. Probable not the piece of advice that all the other weight loss coaches would give you, but if it relaxes you and you like to be relaxed…. It’s ok! Stop putting limitations on what you can and cannot do! Limitations make us feel crappy and no one wants to feel that way! Allow Monday into your life with a sense of determination and relaxation.
The entire way that your day, no matter if it is Monday or Friday, is going to be solely based on how YOU decide to start the day.... If you get up, rush around, eat breakfast in the car and feel like a crazy person, most likely your day is going to be the same way.   However if you get up, do not have to rush, get a workout in, have a healthy breakfast and take 5 minutes to show some gratitude, your day will go a lot smoother.   Let's talk and get a plan started for you.... It's free, no pressure and you will leave the call with something to get started!
