Down Day (Day 24)

Monday, March 18, 2013

I struggle with bi-polar disorder. On most days I am more manic than down. But for some reason, today of all days, I hit a wall. And it shows in my day. I feel bad that I didn't get any exercise in at all today and spent the majority of the day in bed asleep. Sure I have an ear infection and don't feel 100%, but I had been doing so well despite that.

What can I do differently? Instead of sleeping, I need to get up and work out. I need to do like the flylady says and get showered and get dressed to the lace up shoes. I need to stop making excuses. I can't have too many days like this. Not anymore.

The good news is that I didn't eat my way out of this. While lunch wasn't really that great, I didn't go over on my calories.

    i agree w/ everyone else. I've been down too. Just a combo of life and blech weather. You've shown great mindfulness, self-awareness and that's a big step on the right path. emoticon I like what RDGISME had to say, if I just fool myself into putting on those lace-up shoes, or "just swish/swipe" whatever works or "only 10 min" well it's more than we were going to do originally, right? HOLD TOUGH emoticon emoticon

    We might not be all bi-polar, but never the less, we all have days where we feel like we want to stay in bed at one time or another. The big thing is, you knew what you did and want to change it! Good for you!!! Keep up the good work. We're all here for one another. emoticon

    Each day is so different from the one before..I know how difficult it is! You didn't eat your way thru the day? emoticon I tend, on mornings like you are having now, to just convince myself to get up and dressed: your day starts to flow from there! You accomplished a great thing today by not eating your way out of it!! It can only go up from there!!
