a rough day ... week ... month.

Monday, February 03, 2014

I am slipping back into a depression. I'm trying to not let it happen, but I'm not winning... yet.

I've been taking fitness classes. I somehow hurt my one shoulder. I've been resting it, hoping it will heal. Instead, it seems to be getting worse. I'm so frustrated. I am angry that I feel I have to actively heal my body, rather than let time and rest heal it.

I also noticed I haven't fueled my body properly lately. I have NO energy for my fitness classes. Top that off with an injury, and I'm looking at a possible disaster.

So I came home early tonight.

I really need to turn this around.

I need to see a physiotherapist to help heal my knee, hip and now shoulder.
I need to eat better
I need to drink my water.
I need to take better care of my body. It won't just happen by accident. I need to do it.

So why does it seem so hard to do?

    Sometimes it seems like injuries feed on each other.

    You can do this, don't let depression win. You'll come out on top, I know you will!

    Sometimes the first step is the hardest one. Like someone said below - one step/day/meal/thought at a time. You can do it.

    emoticon I understand your pain and while I cant know exactly what youre feeling, I know how tough it is. I know I will always be here to listen if you want to send me sparkmail and just vent. dont let the depression win. you can cry it out for a day and then pick yourself up. most importantly, do something for yourself every day and understand that while you wish your body can do more that it can right now, one day you will be able to and you have to take care of this body because its going to bring you to your goal.

    New habits are never easy.One day at a time , one step at a time. You can do this. just keep tracking your food and it becomes a habit.

    I completely understand. Injuries keep coming up with me too. Can't workout like I used to, have to slow it down a bit. Hard to slow it down sometimes when I love the high impact stuff. Not worth the injuries now days.
