Checking In

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Just a quick blog to check in...I haven't been blogging very often, but I know I should be!

Trying to find the energy to exercise even though my job physically exhausts me has been difficult, but I really need to be doing some extra work on my body. I know that exercise will also help with my depression and keep me from sleeping away the day when I have a day off. I also need to get back into the habit of walking my pup every day, the poor little guy suffers when my brain is feeling wacky. I have promised myself that I will do some yoga every day, even if just a couple of poses, so I am hoping that will keep me motivated!

I didn't get my 1000 exercise minutes in last month- but today the new month is starting and I MUST meet my goal! Plus, I turn 42 in a couple of weeks and would really like to start my year off right.

Hope all is well for those of you that read this!!!!

    Good to see you blog Teresa. More than I do on that front. Hope you have a great February and really bust that 1000 minute mark.

    You're still here! Yay!

I know it's hard to fit everything in a person's schedule, but you MUST walk your dog. emoticon

If anything, have longer and faster walks with your dog. That should help.

Have a great weekend that's coming up!

    I'm looking forward to being able to exercise again when I get the dr's ok. You really do feel better. It is worth effort in your outlook and does make a difference with depression. Even if its just 15 minutes. Good luck. Soon spring will be upon us and we'll be able to get outside again.

    I cant wait for daylight savings!!!!! I love the longer days!
I also just switched back to a different anti-depressant and I think that has been having a strange/negative reaction to me as well. Though I am almost a couple weeks in so I hope to be feeling better soon.
Thanks for commenting!

    Welcome back - I was wondering what happened to you but have been so busy myself, haven't had time to check in with you. I think a lot of people go thru the 'blahs' right about this time of year - there's all the momentum and excitement from the holidays followed by New Year's and the associated energy but it wears off fast and the second half of January thru the month of February seem to lag. We'll have Daylight Savings Time in another month and that will give us new energy again. In the meantime, maybe we could get together to walk the dogs around Back Bay this weekend - let me know!
