Mondays are for Meltdowns

Another summer weekend in the books. Mine was filled with family time, baby showers, a 30th birthday fiesta, year old’s b-day extravaganza and a fantasy football draft (translation many pumpkin flavored beers and oso many cheeseburgers) . In addition to that, I had a 5.5 mile run and 2 strength training workouts, some fun financial
