Oh Monday...

Today was the epitome of a Monday.

I woke up at 2:45am with Mother Nature's monthly gift.

I stumble down the stairs to make my way to the bathroom. In an effort not to wake anyone else, I shut the bathroom door before turning on the light. As I flip the light switch, I must have startled one of those huge waterbugs because it flew at my face, bounced off my forehead, landed on my shoulder and proceeded to crawl around to my back. I start jumping and turning in circles while flailing my arms around like a crazy person trying to knock it off of me...

I was eventually successful.

I finally get up again to head out the door and I'm running late for work. On top of that, there's an accident on the freeway, traffic out the wazoo, and I needed gas. Triple whammy. 

I make it to work a little over an hour late and the work day is just about normal... It was as good as any day can be when it's accompanied by cramps and more than necessary trips to the bathroom.

I get in the car to head home from work and my "check engine light" comes on. Oh joy.

I have to say... I'm still in pretty good spirits after today! 

Now, it's time for some Moose Tracks ice cream :) (My fav!) & some Bachelor Pad. (no pun intended)

Red & Leopard

Just a look I'm loving - 

What do you guys think?

Ok so I leave for my very first cruise in 2 weeks! The past month all I've talked about is "losing for the cruise" and that hasn't gone over so well. So, I'm going to depend on a spray tan instead. (That'll shave off a good 10lbs, right?) Works for me! I bought the 30 day shred and I can't even FINISH level one. :( No bueno! I've got 2 weeks to whip my body into some resemblance of in shape! 

You guys got any tips for me??

Heaven in a cup - almost.

I have found Heaven! Who knew it's been hiding in your local grocers' freezer isle... Skinny Cow Strawberry Cheesecake is the most delicious (guilt-free!) dessert I've had in a long while! (Okay, maybe ever) It's so smoothe and perfectly sweet! It's a MUST TRY. 

So in order to prepare for my cruise (which I leave for in 1 month!!) - I bought the Jillian Michaels' DVD 30 Day Shred. I'm hoping it whips me into bikini shape quick! (I'm ignoring the fact that summer is almost over and I'm still not in "bikini" shape - that's pathetic.) 

Walmart - $10 (in store)

(Seems to have worked for her!)

And I really love this swimsuit by H&M - 

Alright, enough procrastination - I need to get to my workout.
