Just Wrong

in All Posts

I woke up on the wrong side of bed.  Metaphorically speaking, of course.  There’s only one real side for me to get up on, unless I’m planning to crawl over a dog and the Husband.  I’m just a grump today.  And I don’t want to be – It’s Sunday! It’s cloudy and cool out! – but I am.  And my grumpiness makes me feel guilty and self-indulgent, which only perpetuates the cycle (man, I need to give myself a break!).   Maybe cookies will help?


Breakfast in bed, and then I went back to sleep for another two hours.  Apparently caffeine is no match for me today.


Round 2 – This delicious smoothie.


Okay, it looks slightly gray and gross.  But I promise – it was tasty! 


Soy milk

1/2 a banana

Frozen raspberries

Protein powder

Handful raw spinach


Eaten with my breakfast buddy.


Gonna go turn this frown upside-down.  I’m determined.

    I hope you feel better soon! Thanks for keepin’ it real though!

  • Kate @ life's precious moments May 6, 2012, 12:11 pm

    I woke up feeling the same way today. Hopefully we can both just turn our days around!! I think getting outside will be helpful too. Sometimes just being outside and being by yourself can turn a mood around. Hope your day gets better!

    I had one of those type of sundays a couple of weeks ago. Grumpy for absolutely no reason and no matter what I did I couldnt snap out of it. It was sooo annoying. Hope you have a better day!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats May 6, 2012, 12:23 pm

    take some “me time” and just go on a relaxing walk with no distractions!

    I would say it was PMS, but….

    I think sometimes you have to embrace the crankiness, to a point. It’s cathartic. And then after a few hours or a day you get it out of your system.

    I stumbled on your blog just a few days ago. I’m a little over halfway in my weight loss/getting healthy/life transformation and was in search of new ideas and a little inspiration. 🙂

    Anyway – this morning, I read your post and thought, “hmm, her weather sounds like my weather…” and low and behold, I saw on the sidebar that you also live in Charlotte! HA, funny.

    Hope you feel better soon – going out for a walk/jog usually cures the “blahs” for me. Take it easy! 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP May 6, 2012, 1:10 pm

      Fun that we live in the same place 🙂 I think you’re right – I need a walk.

  • Ashleysh22 May 6, 2012, 1:27 pm

    I’m grumpy today too. But I think it’s because it’s stormy outside. I only wish I could go for a walk. Or a run. Both cheer me up immensely.

    Ugh I hate grumpy days. Just remember everyone is allowed to be grumpy once in awhile! 🙂 Maybe this will cheer you up: I’m a school counselor and I gave my copy of Operation Beautiful to a 6th grade girl who very much needed to read it . . .she was super excited! Now I have to go buy another copy but it’s worth it to brighten someone else’s day.:)

  • Amber K May 6, 2012, 1:56 pm

    I hate those days! I hope yours gets better. 🙂

  • Kristin May 6, 2012, 2:11 pm

    I am feeling the same way today due to less than 6 hours of sleep last night – my own fault.

    A trick I use when I’m feeling like a grumpy is to compliment a stranger – the grocery checker, the person next to you in the long line that is contributing to your grumpy mood, etc 🙂 Perking up someone else is such a good way to perk up yourself too.

    Hope the rest of the day is great!

    • Kristen May 6, 2012, 5:53 pm

      Love the idea Kristin! Will have to try that out on my next blah-feeling day 🙂

      • CaitlinHTP May 6, 2012, 9:11 pm

        That is a very good idea 😉

  • Jess @JessCantCook May 6, 2012, 2:15 pm

    Grumpy Sundays are the worst! Hope your day gets better 🙂

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape May 6, 2012, 2:18 pm

    Sometimes you just have off days. It happens to everyone. Hope you can cheer up a bit!

  • Lea May 6, 2012, 2:49 pm

    I hate waking up grumpy, especially when it’s for no reason and you feel stupid for being in a bad mood but nothing makes you feel better.

    Go google pictures of puppies, it’s impossible to stay grumpy when looking at a teeny puppy.

    • CaitlinHTP May 6, 2012, 9:11 pm

      Done and done! I feel better now 🙂

  • Christin May 6, 2012, 3:00 pm

    Haha – I love Lea’s comment! I was going to suggest that you watch a silly animal Youtube video. I see that she and I are thinking along the same lines. 🙂

  • Laura @ She Eats Well May 6, 2012, 3:23 pm

    Hey at least you are trying to get on the right side :). Enjoy your Sunday. Hope it’s filled with sun and cookies!

  • Angela @ Health, Happiness and Harmony May 6, 2012, 4:05 pm

    Hope your day gets better! When I’m feeling grumpy I try to create/bake something new. I get so involved I forget about how I was feeling, and when it is successful, it makes me feel good to have made something delicious to share with others.

  • Alexa @ SimpleEats May 6, 2012, 4:46 pm

    I’ve felt the EXACT same way today…maybe something’s in the air? A little window shopping helped, hopefully your day gets better!

  • Kylie @ immaeatthat May 6, 2012, 5:05 pm

    I hate blah days that this. I have a joyful week of final exams ahead of me so I’ve been riding a grumpy feeling all weekend. My butt is numb from sitting and my brain is dead from studying. Just think, at least your done with college! Woohoo:)

  • Amanda May 6, 2012, 6:14 pm

    I had one of those days last Saturday … and it was my birthday!! I woke up in a funk and had trouble shaking it – what finally did it was a latte from Starbucks and a brownie! And the taking the pressure off to have a “perfect bday”.

  • Rachel Starr May 6, 2012, 7:13 pm

    Look at the “humor” section on pinterest or go to #whatshouldwecallme on tumblr. If those don’t make you smile or laugh out loud, you have no soul!

  • Mac May 6, 2012, 7:19 pm

    That’s my favorite saying for when I feel like that. Fake laugh for like a minute and your mood will be lifted 🙂 Hope things get better as the day goes on!

  • Katie @ Soulshine and Sassafras May 6, 2012, 7:55 pm

    Aw, feel better, Caitlin!

  • Alicia May 6, 2012, 8:39 pm

    I hope your day has improved! This isn’t relevant to your post, but I keep meaning to write this comment, and forgetting. You and I share the same birthday (April 26) and my first baby’s estimated due date is exactly 2 months after yours–August 13! However, I am 8 years older than you (you are my younger brother’s age). I started reading your blog when we were ttc and read your pregnancy updates for the week I am entering (will be 26 w tomorrow).

    • CaitlinHTP May 6, 2012, 9:10 pm

      😉 Congrats!!!! April 26 birthdays rule.

  • Annette@FitnessPerks May 6, 2012, 8:43 pm

    Hope you’re feeling better!! 🙂
