Well last week in a nutshell
I took some baby steps...
I worked out 3 X
Ate healthy at least 50 % of the time.
Had fewer binges. (2)
Saw a psychologist.
She told me to balance out my diet, take some vitamin D, vitamin B complex and omega 3 oil to help with my moods. To eat whatever I want. In small portions. Exercise 30 mins EVERYDAY! Be a "detached observer" of my thoughts and to contemplate forgiveness. I have another appointment in two weeks to see if this helps get me out of this slump I have been in for the last few months....ok so she said I have moderate depression...no biggie! I will get through this. It's nothing I can't handle. Which reminds me, I need some weightloss affirmations.
I know cutting sugar to a minimum would stabilize my mood as well. After eating it, I feel like a zombie in a sugary haze. I'm slow, angry and otherwise lethargic. I can't think clearly, I am just a lost cause. I swear! It's ridiculous. I have been using Agave Nectar to sweeten my coffee and cutting down the baked goods, though they still call my name. I have yet to get through a day without ice cream, cake or cookies. But the moderation was much better this week. Much better. Today I indulged in ONE oatmeal raisin cookie. (Usually I cannot just stop at one) and SHARED a brownie earthquake blizzard with the hubby. Next time we'll share a much smaller size. Large is even waaaaay too big for two people!
I felt sad most of today. My hubby did get a few smiles and giggles out of me, as he usually does ( I mean, why else would I have married him?
) Not really sure why I have been depressed as of late...maybe it's because I live in Canada and haven't had a good dose of natural sun light in who the heck knows how long!? But I am grateful for the cold climate as it does kill the icky critters that thrive so abundantly in the warmer climates.
Speaking of abundance. There is no doubt I want more of it in my life. Abundance of LOVE, WEALTH, and PROSPERITY.
