Ain’t No Sunshine

For reasons I won’t go into here, it’s been one of those days… I’m feeling pretty down and just want to crawl into bed. I loved teaching spin this morning (even though the class was tiny for some reason) but I’ve been kind of in a funk ever since. I even left work to go buy some Kombucha (Citrus this time) and some dark chocolate. Seriously. Kombucha and dark chocolate brighten any day. 🙂

[And guess what Tyler? I finally tried the Endangered Species brand…dark chocolate with cocoa nibs. And he’s right…this stuff rocks. BTW, Tyler may or may not have an awesome giveaway going on for this brand of chocolate. Can I get extra entries for mentioning it?? Pretty please? 😉 ]

Anyway, about the only thing cheering me up right now is that there are dark rain clouds outside. I love dark clouds (and thunderstorms, so hopefully storming is on the way too). No big plans tonight since all I want to do is curl up in bed with the hubsters, the puppa, and a good book.  But I’ll try to be back in chipper form tomorrow!

What do you do when you’re having a downer day?

Anyone else love dark, ominous clouds?

    Hey chickadee!! I hate the down days..and I hate that you’re having one. If I lived closer I would come spoil you with granola + graham crackers. 🙂 I haven’t found a trick to snap myself out of the down days…usually takes a good night of sleep!

      mmm…I think I might make your granola and graham crackers this weekend. I’ll pretend you dropped them off. 🙂

    It is raining here too…just kind of a gloomy day. Makes you want to stay inside in pajamas instead of running errands with a screaming baby. Hum…

    I’m sorry you’re feeling down! When that happens to me, I usually feel better if I work out. I’m kind of feeling lazy and down today too. It’s probably the rainy weather here in Portland. So I’m going to the pool tonight and then setting in the hot tub. 🙂

    I usually run when I’m in a bad mood…or shop 🙂 I loved your running post by the way. I think I sometimes borderline taking it too far and do it for the wrong reasons. You do such a good job at putting these things in perspective!!

    Sorry about the bummer day, we all get those from time to time.

    Glad the chocolate helped a little 🙂

    i like to listen to good, upbeat music and workout! On some occasions, I enjoy baking cookies 😉 and giving them away! Usually doing something nice for someone else helps me take the focus off of myself and my funk…haha. Hope this helps! oh yeah…and HUGs! demand one from the hubby!

    i love to listen to the rain (if it’s warm enough, with windows open) and light an candle and get lost in a book. or a movie. or snuggling with four and two legged members of the family 🙂

    and thanks for humoring my rant, and for your thoughts!!

    I hope this weekend is better!! I love when it rains – and LOVE thunderstorms even more. I’m originally from Kansas and we had THE BEST thunderstorms!

    Ok, BOO to the bad day but HOLLA at the Chocolate tasting!!!! Did you big puffy pink heart it?!?!?!

    When I have a bad day, I grab the ipod and either run my guts out, or elliptical my guts out. Either of which seem to do the trick. That, and massive amounts of chocolate and or dessert. 😉 Balance, right?

    I’m sorry, babe! Hopefully things will be looking up soon (and by the looks of your most recent post…gelato/sorbet for breakfast should certainly help :)).

    I LOVE overcast days and thunderstorms. I’m actually in Florida right now, and it just started storming. There’s just something so cozy about it, don’t you think?
