Magnificent Monday

Yesterday was supposed to be "Magnificent Monday", so what happened??? .....

I was going to get up at 6am to do a 45 minute iCycle on the turbo trainer in the office, uuuuum, didn't happen.
Get showered and chivvy^ the kids on to school all happy family like = well I got the kids to school shall we say.
There was a vivacious grocery shop on the cards .... the trolley held me up on my feet & I managed to NOT swear at anyone!
Then I was going to bounce into the office and work on my set tasks for the day, eeeeerrrrmmmm they got done OK!
After school run it was a scheduled fun packed afternoon with park & homework on the to-do-list ...... mini-me-snr did his, jnr will have to be today
I was going to eat healthy and stick to my plan ..... it took EVERY-OUNCE-OF-MY-BEING (and a few teaspoons of almond nut butter) to see me through.
I was going to be happy and vibrant and vivacious because of everything I had achieved ...... I was slopped on the couch by 5pm having ingested headache tabs to fend off a pending migraine.  Sleeping by 10pm with more tabs.  It's almost gone this morning and I can comfortably sit and look at my screen without having to put my sunnies on.

So unfortunately my Magnificent Monday turned into Migraine Monday *very sad face* :-(

So .... on to Magnificent Tuesday .......
