You know when you have “one of those weeks”, where you just can’t pull yourself out of your crappy mood? That was my entire week last week. I don’t have many of those weeks. Whenever I feel myself falling into one, I say, “Hey Juli, stop sucking at life” and then I move on with my day with a smile. But last week, it wasn’t happening. I felt fatigued, sad, and just incredibly lazy. I’m not sure if the book tour finally caught up to me, but I was dragging ass and my personality was lame sauce. It wasn’t until I spent the day shopping and eating butternut squash risotto that I was finally able to shake my sh*t attitude about life. It’s amazing what a good fitting pair of bell bottom jeans can do for a soul.
Anywho, because of that attitude, my workouts SUCKED. I ended up not even going one day that I had planned to go because I just didn’t give a f*ck. I don’t like that feeling. Why would I not care about taking care of myself? That’s dumb. But the comfort of my pajamas and a blanket and my dog was just way more inviting then a workout with pistols. But to my point, what do you do to pull yourself out of a mood that just won’t quit? Tell me everything!
Just FYI, no “What I ate in a day” post today because I’m traveling today to LA so I’m going to post “What I eat while traveling” tomorrow and show you what goes on in a JB day. Do you hate when I say JB? Me too, my friend, me too.
