I need Sun!!!

Friday, November 30, 2012

The last six months or so have definitely had their share of struggles and challenges to overcome, but it seems these last few weeks have been the most difficult for me. I’ve been searching, trying to find out a reason for the change of mood and drive I’ve been experiencing, but nothing seems to add up. At first I thought it was just due to the normal burnout or boredom I typically feel after trying to lose weight for a while, but with as close as I’m getting to reaching 100lbs of weight loss, that can’t be it. I also thought that it might be due to the fact that I turn 40 years old last monthk. And while that definitely had me depressed for a while, with all the encouraging “help” (ridicule), from friends and family I seem to be over it.
I only other factor that sticks in my head is the weather? While we are no strangers to the clouds and rain here in the northwest, after having the great fall we had, the winter grey seems to leave me unmotivated. Every morning when I wake up its dark and when I get home from work its dark, and I no longer can head up into the mountains on the weekends to hike, like I’ve come to love.
Any suggestions on things I can try? Or possibly new activities I can do during the winter? I’ll let you know if I find anything that seems to help.

    HaHa! I have been going through just what you are. I find just getting outside & getting a little sunshine, does wonders for the spirits. And I personally like to walk in the dark. I used to get up at 5:30. But now it is too cold so I am taking my walks in the sunshine. Just a 5 min walk in your day will help!
