Still working on getting the funk out...

Thursday, June 28, 2012

So, my job situation is unchanged which just serves to make me more anxious and depressed. But, I'm taking new supplements for depression that my naturopath recommended and I feel that's helping. Apparently I have some gene mutation called 'MTHFR" and if you take methylated folic acid, it helps with not only the risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease, but also depression.

So, right now I'm working on my eating habits. Juicing every day. Green salads at least once a day. Minimal alcohol and only when out. Exercise has been spotty because evening swim lessons with the Toddler have overwritten my spinning classes. But, I am trying to just be ok with not doing it all right now. When my mental state is a little fragile. Anyway, here's my motivational thoughts for today:

    I am sorry you are struggling with so many things right now. You are doing your best and that has been so supportive and motivating to me. We can ride out these bumpy times!!

    I'm sorry that things are still so unclear with your job -- that must be frustrating! Good for you with the juicing, salads and the minimal alcohol. I kind of decided that I can't "do it all" right now either. I was trying to put in exercise a few times a day, and I just can't. I am trying to do ONE little thing each day -- walk the kids OR walk the dog OR do my workout video ... not do it all on one day. Does your little guy ever still go in a stroller? If you ever want to take a walk and talk, I try to get the kids in the triple stroller every nice day that I can. It would be fun to chat about all of this and walk (exercise) while we're doing it. My kids love the stroller ride (but it sounds like that may not be common of other kids M's age).
