On the come back trail? Please!

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I have to say my “depression” is a weird thing. I go for weeks being one step from tears, wanting to hide from the world, and basically feeling worthless. Then I wake up and the world is big and bright and rosey. Now nothing has really changed, the “things” that were upsetting me are still there. Nothing has been done or resolved but I go from overwhelmed to feeling like I can handle it. Makes me feel a bit crazy. I’m hoping this up swing sticks around for a while.

Hopefully feeling better will also mean eating better. I’ve been eating healthy foods but the portions and quantity – good gravy Charlie Brown! And it has been showing on the scale and how I feel, physically. So as of today, I’m back to doing things right. I’ve done this before, and I can do it again. No fuss, no muss!

I also need to MOVE IT, MOVE IT! Hubby is just going to have to keep the giggles about my jiggles to himself! I know I look funny, heck I’ve been “moving like pregnant yak” (spark goodie to the first one that knows the movie reference and no cheating with google).

emoticon So I did my squats yesterday. Ended up doing 140- my legs just couldn’t do the last 10! LOL. I was shooting for 100 so I did it. That was tiring but felt good.

Today, I challenged my team to 60 minutes of sweating and personally I’m going for 100 Push-Ups. Most of these will be wall push-ups here at work, but a push-up is a push-up! And I’m sick of Olive Oyl arms! So for today –

60 minutes of good sweaty Cardio
100 Push-ups!

I know I can do this!

    Glad to hear you are on the upswing right now. Had to google the line - the answer explained why I didn't know it. Never saw the film.

    It is funny how sometimes nothing changes but our outlook becomes vastly different. I'm kind of hoping that will happen to me soon.

I didn't get the reference, but it's floating there right in front of me. I bet I'll wake up at 3am and remember it. if I do I'll be claiming my goodie too.

Happy Friday Eve tomorrow.

    Catching up on y our blogs. I can get in depressions that just suddenly melt. PMS sometimes, for instance. No clue on the movie line, but I shall refrain from googling and maybe it will shake loose.

    Your jiggle comment made me giggle. Glad you are feeling much better. No idea on the movie. And I am definitely passing on those push ups. Too much for me right now. But you do have fun doing them. Just tell me all about it.
Happy Wednesday.

    I get it now , you want to make your depression dead tired and sleepy emoticon .I confess I googled the movie good or bad ? cause there are a lot of funny quotes on IMDB. I don't remember if I saw it or not cause it was before of the revolution and we had mostly russian movies or john wayne ones emoticon (btw russian movies were really good, I'm not complaining )
