Through the fog
Saturday, February 02, 2013
I had an inspiration this week. In order to lose weight, you have to feel like it. I’ve been totally unsuccessful this time around, and it’s because I haven’t yet been able to make myself feel like it.
To be honest (and since no one reading this knows me in real life, I’ll be totally honest), I haven’t really felt like doing much at all for the past few months. I have been in a fog, and, now that I realize it, I am dying to get out. I don’t know if it is depression, or if it is poor diet and lack of sleep, or if it is something else, but I really need to be free. I think I come across as OK most of the time. I get panicky a lot, but I can keep it together for the most part. But, the fact is, I’m not OK.
So back to my inspiration — I think I have finally found a way out of the fog. When I feel foggy, I’m going to run. I’m going to go outside and run, or at least walk. I decided this today at work. I work in an office with no windows in the basement of a building. It’s definitely fog-inducing. ☺ As soon as I decided it, I just did it. I left the building and did a 15-minute walk. My head cleared immediately — I felt better.
I’ve always loved to run. I don’t really need to run fast, but I love to run, especially outside. It makes me feel happy. And while I’m clearing my mind, I’ll be getting exercise. It’s a start.
