Really bad mood

No clue why, but for the last few days I've been in the worst possible mood. I've been exhausted, my workouts have been terrible, and mornings are just awful. It's 9am, and I've already yelled at bf when he didn't do anything wrong. He made plans to hang out with the boys the night before I have a race, when, I don't think I told him I had the race. Ugh.

Anyone have suggestions to snap out of this funk?

    I wish I did but I'm right there with you.

    Bri and I are hopefully having lunch today, and I'm really hoping that'll snap me out of it.

    I hate funks...I usually try and just get a little me time when I'm in a funk, usually getting a pedicure or something helps me. But do apologize to the BF, he should be understanding and just let him know. I always apologize to mine when I do that to him, and he understands....I feel that helps.

    I had one towards the end of last week.  I had a lot going on and was stressed.  I felt that once my schedule calmed down and I got a good night of sleep I felt better.  Do you have any time just to relax and take care of yourself? A massage or a mani/pedi may be?

    I agree with PP, 'me' time helps, or retail therapy.  Spoil yourself with something you've been wishing for but putting off buying for whatever reason.  My workouts tend to help, sore muscles can distract from a bad mood, but it sounds like you're doing that already.  When all else fails, hit happy hour with your GF's and have wine.  Copious amounts of wine.

    I'm sorry you're in a funk princess. Honestly, i'm in a bit of one too. BF just graduated so he's got 2 weeks off until his state exam. My BFF is staying with me for her last week of recovery from heart surgery. That means i'm off to work at 6AM while they both stay home and watch movies. Yes...I'm a big ball of jealousy this week!

    Generally when I'm in a funk I write in my journal about it. Sometimes just getting it all out helps me to realize what i'm truly upset about and then get over it.

    I think the stress of everything is getting to me. I'm a few days away from having a friend stay with me for the weekend, a week and a half away from doing my first olympic triathlon (on the other side of the country), 2 weeks away from closing on my new house and moving, 3 weeks away from moving bf in with me. All built around training, working, and cleaning! "Me time" doesn't really exist when there's a million things that have to be done.

    But I think you all are right. I'll appologize to the bf and try to do something fun at lunch today. Whatever it is to just get me out of the office. Though this crazy DC humidity is already bad!

    Wow that's alot of STUFF all about to happen at once.  I bet you are stressed to the max.  Since you have a friend coming to stay maybe just focus all your energy on getting to that point first and then have a nice dinner, a drink and maybe a pedicure with the friend.  That way you can sort of reboot for the next thing coming up.  I get like that too when I'm stressed.  I'll usually tell BF I'm in a funky mood and he takes a wide birth till I get out of it haha.

    He called me and asked what was up. Apparently I haven' been myself in a few days. He's the best.

    I took a long lunch, got ice cream, cried my eyes out for no specific reason, and feel amazingly better.

    I'm still liking you all's pedicure idea though. Might put that on the schedule for Saturday after my 10K!

    It's great that your BF is compassionate and understanding.  Sometimes, you just have to let these feelings run their course.  Best of luck to you with your busy upcoming schedule, and keep reaching out for support from those who care about you!
