Have you ever been in a FUNK?

Monday, September 03, 2012

Blech. All weekend I have felt fat, lazy, slobby, and just plain icky. Almost depressed, but not really. Kind of a waste of a weekend when you don't feel like yourself.

Just weird is all.

    YUP!!! I've had a bunch of those. For me that often means that I've been pushing myself too hard and it's time to slow down. Fortunately the funks always pass and I return to being and feeling like me.

    I usually feel like that when I'm tired, or sick or when I haven't exercised enough. The first thing I do is take a look at how much sleep I've gotten. Next I look at what I've been eating. If the first two are okay, I do a short workout at home and see how I feel. If I feel worse, then I'm most likely getting sick. If I feel better, I go to the Y for a water workout.

    Yep, I have. Sometimes it's best just to wallow in it. Maybe set a time limit - like one hour or 8, depending on your need. Then do something. Dress in something you like. Give yourself a splurge -- maybe an expensive skinny latte or something equivalent. If there is something you are dreading and putting off doing, just do it and get it over with. If you aren't sleeping enough, sleep.

    Make a plan to improve your life -- nothing too drastic, but something you can do. Then do it. You'll feel better. Almost guaranteed.

    Be extra good to yourself as you pull through this time. May be hormones or the barametric pressure or a past experience weighing you down. Who knows? But you can overcome it!!! Take care.

    Yes, it sounds like one of those "is that all there is?" days. I have been there and done that. So long as you get back out of it, you will be okay. Don't wallow too long or you might get stuck.
