Today it finally hit me that I haven't been on Spark in about a month! Actually when I took a look at the last date on my log-in chart, it was over a month ago. This last month has been really hard for me and it has brought my energy level way down. Thankfully my husband and I are still hitting the ground running (and sometimes the never-ending treadmill belt). Unfortunately, as I was sitting in front of my computer, when I should have been writing for work, I realized that I was feeling depressed. I get seriously depressed during the colder months since I am such an outdoors person at heart - just not when it is cold. I think I was deemed to be an Australian instead of German-American. But, lemonade baby, lemonade... *smirk*
Lately I have noticed that I have been eating a lot more than what I should be eating. It is true that we are eating vegan still however the quantity isn't the best for my smaller frame. A person that is 4' 10" just really can't eat as much as someone over 5'. Over-eating is one of my main problems. I'm thinking it also could be contributing to my depressed, lazy mood lately.
So, I'm back and ready to get back into the swing of counting calories and counting the workout minutes. This is a lifestyle change, so I have to make sure I keep it for a lifetime, not just when it seems fit to do it.
Tonight: Out to the gym, a little yoga and then a healthy dinner in the warm house.
