Friday Night De-Funk

I've been in a bit of a funk for the last few days. I am not sure what it is exactly or what's causing it but its definitely a funky kinda funk. I feel restless and yet lazy. Tired and bored but also antsy. Lethargic and also compelled to do something. Very, very weird.

Assuming my brain and body are telling me I need a break (or that I'm on the verge of full-on crazy town!) I gave my self some time. Time to not exercise. Time to go with the flow. Time to relax and just be.

The alternative is me all burnt out and moody and trust me no one wants that (The Boyfriend isn't even here and he's nodding in agreement)

The break is over tomorrow, when I set out for my planned long run, so tonight I am taking full advantage of having the place to myself to rest and basically do "Sam stuff"

Like eating a yummy, healthy and satisfying dinner..

Complete with dessert salad...

Some On Demand movies of the chick-flick variety...

And some snacking carb-loading....

Plus an early bedtime, where I will take advantage of having the bed to myself and sleep like a happy Starfish. (Don't act like you don't do it. And if you don't you are seriously missing out!)

Yeah, suddenly I can't quite remember what I have to be all in a funk about. Here's to some solid sweating tomorrow but until then I've got every single spot on the sofa with my name on it!

Happy Friday friends!

So tell me, how do you pull yourself out of a funk? Anything fun happening this weekend that I should know about?


  1. haaaaaa i totally do the "sprawl like a starfish" move when my boo is traveling for work... but I've always called in the "octopus!" And um, that salsa you got goin' on up there? I LOVE THAT STUFF! Is it the Artichoke kind? That's totally my jam...

  2. Amen. I've been a funk for a while now it seems. One minute I love my job. The next I'm updating my resume. I want to stay in and relax, then I want to go out. My mind can't seem to figure out what it wants. One minute I love blogging, the next it's a chore.

    I love your idea of just decompressing and doing what makes you feel best. I typically do the same. Watch movies, read a good book, get in my pajamas and head to bed early...all key.

  3. I love that wrap!! I just recently got into eating beans since becoming fully vegetarian..and black beans are my favorite so far!

  4. It sounds like you had a fabulous night to help you get out of your funk! I love the "starfish" move:) It's the greatest!

  5. I've been in a funk too.. also hoping to end it by getting out and running long tomorrow. Your dinner looked amazing!

  6. Your meal looks fabulous. When I'm in a funk, I watch brainless TV, and eat trail mix by the pound on the sofa & let my mind veg out.

  7. New follower here...have to say, I seriously love the idea of "dessert salad" and am going to try that for sure! Looks delicious! If I'm in too much of a funk for a run, sometimes just getting outside for a bit helps me a ton. Even if it's just sitting outside in the front yard with my 2 munchkins :)
