Kinda down and dragged out but determined

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Don't know if it is being on another plateau so soon after the last one or having a weekend that is chore-oriented, but I woke up feeling a little depressed this morning. Worse, I had little motivation to exercise which almost never happens.

On my walk through the neighborhood, I debated skipping the beach walk today though that is one of my favorite things to do. It just seemed like a lot of time to spend on a day I have a list of things I still need to get accomplished. In the end, though I dragged my feet, I made it to the beach. As usual, it was invigorating and refreshing. 100 minutes in the sun and wind, looking at beautiful Lake Michigan and I am doing ok. Mood is better. While not brimming with energy, I feel up to the rest of the day and the week ahead.

There is a lot to be said for just doing it. :-)

    Hi~

    Good job on getting your walk in....exercise is one of the best methods to combat depression. I know because I have suffered from bipolar disorder for years now. Keep up the good work!
