Fall 7 times, stand up 8

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Shew, as per my usual way of dealing, when things get rough... I disappear.

But I am back now, and ready to take it on again. I haven't given up completely. I am still doing Paleo, I havent had a slice of bread at least. I would say it's still 80/20 but more 80 off and 20 on. Time to change that again.

Part of my problem has been that I am slipping into a depressive episode which totally drains my energy levels and I end up not wanting to cook or work out or anything. So I have taken some time, really spoiled myself and have taken stock of things.

How to get back up when I have been laying like a turtle on my back for a few weeks??


Step one was to get back on sparkpeople, update everything, post on threads and get familiar with the new BLC challenge.. Done!

Step two is to do 10 minutes of cardio to start developing the habit.

Step three is to plan my menu for the week (yes even Thanksgiving) and hit the store so that my house is filled with healthy Paleo option.

Step 4 is to make a time sheet that shows all the time I currently waste and evaluate how to better spend that time.

Baby steps and above all.... Just keep swimming

    Teresa and Shan, thanks for the tips (I dont mind getting them at all btw) sometimes I think us therapists can spend so much time helping others with their depression that we often neglect our own selves. I am hopeful that the exercise will help more than anything.

    Being sick can drain me sometimes and lead me into depression along with the time going back and it being dark so early, etc... I hope the exercise helps and get your 8 hours of sleep as often as possible, irregular sleep makes my depression worse too!

    It's Winter have you supplemented your Diet with the D vitamin as it does help with SAD. If this is a seasonal thing then the SAD light has been helpful for a lot of people I know. emoticon Just a suggestion, if this is not a seasonal depression then the exercise should perk you right up as that is the best natural way to fight it! emoticon I hope you don't mind me giving you these suggesitons
