Back to basics...

I haven't been onto Sparkpeople for what feels like AGES. Last week I did REALLY well with my diet but the wheels came off (big time) on the weekend. It was cold and rainy and a bit depressing, which makes comfort food SOOOO tempting.
Today I feel like I am right back to the drawing board.
I've been struggling intermittently with depression. Most of the time I am doing ok, but some days I feel weighed down - like my blood has turned to lead and I just want to pull the covers over my head and ignore the entire world. What I REALLY need is a break. I need a week away from work to clear my mind and to regain my energy. Unfortunately after getting married last year and taking three weeks off for wedding and honeymoon I have NO leave due to me. So I have to try to make the most of my weekends, I guess.
The renovations also seem to be taking FOREVER. I feel like we've been out of our house for months and months - its been about 2 or 3 now. I KNOW the house will be SO AWESOME when its done, but I am missing my dog, my space and all that stuff. The place we're staying in is great, but there's a part of my mind that keeps reminding me that this isn't home.
One the plus side of things, it will be spring in two weeks time. Warmer weather usually brings better moods and it is much easier to enjoy salads and stuff when you aren't freezing your butt off!! :)
