I'm not sure where to begin on this blog. But my purpose is to begin to become happier and stronger. Right now, I am struggling with insomnia and depression. Because of this my weight is slowly creeping up. I'm not sure which comes first the insomnia or the depression. I think it's the insomnia causing the depression, but it's really hard to say after everything that has happened.
I do take a trycylic antidepressant to help me sleep. Without taking it I am up more than I am asleep. But even with it I am only getting about 4-6 hours a night. I need to take my Mom to a doctor appointment this week, so can't take any more time off at end of the month. I will need to see the doctor next week. I so do not want to go.
So, this week, my goal is simple. I want to resume doing some of the things I used to enjoy doing. I want to stick to a schedule since I seem to do best. So, Monday, Wednesday, Friday I will work out at the club. I may not run/ jog maybe just walk. I don't think it matters as long as I begin the routine. Tuesday/ Thursday if there is sunshine and warm weather a short walk after work would be great.
I know these first steps will be the hardest, but I just have to remember that these are things I really like doing.
