Hello, Beauties! This is what Monday looks like.
Monday always feel so squishy to me as a self-employed person.
One part of my brain says I’m cheating the world not “clocking in” like the rest of the world.
The other part of my brain says it’s Monday and you are already so far behind.
As I floated to the top of consciousness this morning, I heard this gentle whisper from my brain:
This is what Monday looks like
So, I’ve been observing myself all day.
What worked? Why didn’t the other things work?
That thing that seemed like such a sure thing last night when I was planning?
Why didn’t it work in real time?
Planning is good but it is not the end.
Sunday night planning must pass Monday’s reality check.
You’ve experienced that feeling of being tricked when all those Sunday night promises have evaporated
and you are looking at all the things left undone on Monday night.
And it has EVERYTHING to do with what you eat for the rest of the week.
This is what I want you to know. . .
Nothing has gone wrong, you are merely human.
It’s the reason I am posting this Monday blog on Tuesday.
Monday’s reality busted my timeline. But it does not need to bust my week.
Or yours! If yesterday was more splat than success, let’s realign.
What worked that can be replicated?
There is power in not renegotiating good decisions.
This is where habit building starts. Mondays mean:
- hair and makeup – setting this as the norm on Monday makes the entire week better
- morning beauty routine – I start the week as the most important person to me
- shaved legs – means I’m more likely to go to the beach or wear a dress this week
- yoga at noon – gentle movement renews the partnership I am building with my body
So next Monday, my schedule has been predecided from the time I wake up until after yoga.
What worked for you today?
What can be predecided and turned into your newest habit?
Even better, what will your brain do with all the mental energy you free up? Will you feed yourself better?
Remember this simple routine
- Compare Reality to Original Plan
- Realign to create Better Plan
Need help? Most of us do. It requires courage and being willing to let things be awkward for just a bit.
I teach those skills in a small group setting
– 3 women at a time –
in my PhD in Y-O-U program.
The next group starts soon. Is one of the seats yours?

Love you my Voluptuous Beauties!
