a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

yesterday was one of those days.

not good.

i don't know what it was, but i was in such a funk.

it's probably mostly due to how bloated and fat i feel lately. and how messy my life feels at the moment. i'm really struggling with getting myself back into a routine.

so anyway, i found some things that helped me through the day:

1. abba
have you ever tried to stay cranky when abba is playing? i think it might be impossible.

2. target
who doesn't love target when they're in a bad mood. if you're in an especially bad mood, sit down and read children's books for a half hour or so.

3. coffee

4. hunter rain boots
it rained just a little bit today, so i took the opportunity to put my beloved wellies. i also took the opportunity to stand in a gutter full of water just because i CAN!

5. taking charge
so here's the thing: i have a tiny face. if i gain any weight, like even 1/2 a pound, my face bloats up like a boozy old man... well, that's how it looks to me anyway. this and my bloated stomach were what got me into my funk, so i decided to get myself out of it by going on a diet. just for a week or so to get rid of the extra couplefew pounds that are making me so unhappy.

i didn't snap out of it instantly or anything, but these few things were enough to get me through the day. and i'm sure that today will be better because i took charge yesterday.

what do you do to fight the funky and/or bloaty blues?


  1. ug, this is probably TMI but certain times of the month make me super bloaty esp in my face + super grouchy- i fight it off with lots of water, some homeopathic cranberry supplements and chocolate (duh).

    I hope you feel so much better today!! :)

  2. i have felt like that for the past few days and nothing made me feel better until i watched valentines day! ha, of all things! for some reason it just snapped me into the best mood ever. hang in there sweety, and dont forget you are gorgeous:)

  3. YUCK. I'm so sorry you're feeling icky! It sounds like you have a plan, though, to combat it. Here's hoping it works like a charm!

  4. i feel fat too. and icky.

    but the good news is i had wayyyy too much fun with you and levi on saturday. seriously.

  5. awww :( target makes me feel better too... something the boyfriend will never understand.

  6. I completely agree with your first three things to get you through. Who doesn't love rocking out to some Abba? And I absolutely can't wait to shop at Target most of the time, especially in the one dollar section. And I agree with the statement on coffee. Duh. Enough said;)

  7. I was the SAME way yesterday which was weird because it was finally a warm, sunny day in N. Texas. I just started listening to music, I even think some Abba was in my playlist as well! Anyway, glad you slowly crawled out of the funk as did I. Let's make today an awesome day :)!

  8. I love Abba!
    and Target, we just moved back to America from Japan and there was no Target, I <3 Target, I find myself stopping there every time I pass by.
    Glad you found a way through your day! And you are beautiful (I especially love your hair)

  9. Hi there! I've been reading your blog for a while, but haven't commented yet. Congrats on your marriage!

    I had a day just like yours on Friday... it started with a hole in a brand new pair of tights I hadn't yet worn, continued with feeling fat and ugly, and ended with a fight with my boyfriend. Ugh! Luckily, we made up before bed and I didn't have to go to sleep angry.

    In times like these, I find that a walk with a good friend really helps with my perspective - fresh air, exercise, and the chance to vent our problems to each other is a great combination. Also helpful for me is a long nap - when you wake up, it's like starting a fresh new day that doesn't suck as much. Hope all your days this week are better!

  10. i hate those kind of days! i like to get in some comfy yoga pants and go for a hike or long walk near the ocean. 30 minutes of sweating it out on the stairmaster ALWAYS makes me feel better. hope you have a wonderful monday and feel better!

  11. Hope you feel better!
    Here's a new print from my etsy shop to cheer you up!


    I really love your blog and congrats on the wedding!

  12. hang in there... :) u could be stuck in piles and piles of snow like i am here in new york!!! lol
