Loss of Power?...

Ok so today I get in my car and am on my way to work.. And something just doesn't feel right.. All of a sudden it just seems like I don't have the same "get up" as I used to, when I push on the pedal it just doesn't seem as fast.. Idk how this could change in just a day because yesterday seemed totally normal.. Any one have any ideas on what could be the issue..

Change in temperature? There could be a ton of things that could do this. And honestly, when that happened to me, I did a complete tune up and noticed a difference.
Maybe that bug you hit on the way to work added extra weight that your Cobalt wasn't ready for.
