a week of the "mehs"

have you ever had one of those weeks where nothing seems to click? where everything seems overwhelming and exhausting and all you want to do is hide under the covers in bed until it all goes away?

this was one of those weeks for me. i have no idea where it came from. i still don't understand its source. but for the love of all that makes the world go round, it has just felt like a week of unbearable crap! and its silly because i've spent the week in beautiful california. i've been able to see some wonderful people i haven't seen in awhile. i listened to amazing, inspirational speakers and stories. i got my bia watch and have been able to take it on a few runs...

but at the end of the day, i still want to cry it all out for some reason.

i guess that just happens sometimes. and while i still feel pretty "meh" as i type this out, it did help earlier to just share my "meh"ness out loud. it was mostly a 20 minute complaining session to my boyfriend a couple time zones away, but getting the "meh" out of my body and into the world helped. the way i used to handle this type of week would have resulted in emotional eating and going into hiding. but i'm pleased to say that i was able to maintain most of my planned agenda despite my mood, although there was more than a little food involved to cope. i guess that happens when you're surrounded by amazing food 24/7 at work...

but progress is progress. and that has me with a smile on my face right now, despite it all.

how do you deal with "meh" weeks?

  2. I'm really sorry to hear that you've been feeling so "meh" this week! I definitely understand where you are coming from. I think recognizing how you feel and accepting your emotions is the first step. If you need some downtime or quiet reflection then take it. I find it can help to go on a walk, cuddle with my pup Peat, or watch a favourite movie.

    You are right, progress is progress and I'm glad getting it out has helped. I hope you are feeling better soon and back to your usual sunny self soon!

  3. Ah yes, I've had quite a few weeks of meh lately! I hope next week is completely un-meh for you! :)

  4. Hang in there- the sunshine is coming- spring seems to actually be on it's way. I think this winter has played a huge factor in the "mehs" for a lot of people!

  5. I tend to shut down during meh times.... I don't necessarily have one set pattern, but I certainly withdraw myself from whatever is going on as much as possible. I'm thinking with the kids around, I'm not going to have that option anymore, so I'll be curious to see how that changes things. I'm sorry you're in a funk, but getting it out instead of making poor choices is totally a win and a step in the right direction :)
