I blame hormones (because I always do) and after placing blame I have to apologize to my husband, (because I always do). This time however I wanted to stop the madness and figure out how to snap out of my funk. I pondered the question, "what will it take to get me back to my charming, lovable, old self?"
Upon first review I responded, "FUNK IF I KNOW!!" ::snort:: See what I did there?!? hehehe
But then I pulled myself together and took some necessary steps to get myself back out of the funk.
So Monday and Tuesday I cleaned up my act and tried to get back on track with eating better and I didn't have any adult beverages in the evenings because it just wasn't necessary. This made a HUGE difference right off the bat but I still was in a funk...
Also, I don't know about you, but I have a hard time leaving both kids with Dad sometimes. Not because I don't think he can handle it because I assure you, Hubs is legit Super Dad. I just feel guilty. Even if both kiddos are on their very best behavior, handling the both of them solo is a lot of work. But when a window of opportunity presented itself on Sunday for me to take advantage of my pedi gift certificate, I jumped on it! Hubs said, "why don't you go get that done," and instead of hemming and hawing over whether or not I should leave, I just quickly said, "OK!" I LET myself go without feeling a shred of guilt because I knew I needed a few minutes away and I knew I would come home feeling so much better.
The funk started to lighten a tad...
Funk kept lifting...
Lastly, to really kick the funk to the curb I took inventory of what was stressing me out and put things in perspective. I mentally checked-in with myself and decided which things had my panties in a bunch that I could control, and which things I couldn't. I won't bore you with the details of what I grappled with in my head but I just wanted to share that the exercise worked and I felt much better after this.
Funk was outta here! And I'm back, people!
What do you do to get yourself out of a funk?
