To quote Fat Bastard...

Sunday, January 31, 2010

"I eat because i'm unhappy, and i'm unhappy because i eat". Oh, the wiseness of Austin Power's Fat Bastard. I'm in such a funk lately, and this quote seems to sum me up. We haven't gone grocery shopping in forever, so we have nothing fresh in the house. I've been gorging on pizza and cookies and crap, and not exercising. I'm usually in love with cardio, but i can't seem to even workout. I did just do 40 minutes on the treadmill, and of course i feel better. But tomorrow will be another struggle. I'm hoping this will be just another short bout of depression, and if i only gain 5 pounds, i'll be happy. Even practicing my karate is no fun for me and i skipped class last week (albeit i was wiped from a tough day at work). I'm at a loss for cheering myself up, so all i can say is pray for me.

    Sorry you've got the blues, Susan!!!
    Happens in winter to a lot of us.
    Try and make sure you're getting plenty of vitamin D.. and fish oil.. tends to really help for depression!

    If I can help, let me know!

    One day at a time. That's all we can do. Please check out my blog on 1/31/10. I think that would help to motivate you a little. Also try taking a B-complex vitamin. It helps boost your energy.

    Many Blessings to you and yours,

    emoticon I know we all get in a slump sometimes, we are not perfect. Start a new day and keep working out even if you don't feel like it the workout will make you feel better . emoticon

    I think the winter is wearing on us! Try spending some time in bright light -- even if you don't have a light box, I've found that just being under the brightest light you can find helps. And if it is sunny outside, try to get out in it, even it it is cold and you can't stay out very long.

    Also new research is showing that Vitamin D supplements do a world of good in dealing with winter depression. It also improves your immune system. Look for the Vitamin D with the small "3" after it.

    God bless you! This too shall pass!
