I suppose burning candles for "loving memories" helps...I haven't cried in two days now...just feeling the anxiety in my bones now...just trying to keep myself busy so as to not dwell...

I want to thank everyone for the kind words...it goes a long way and I appreciate it...

I got out of my room and up by 8:30 am today. Then I pushed myself and did my full workout for a total 177 minutes of exercise. Hope this last for awhile.

I started my day off by crying while I was doing my laps in the pool. I am trying real hard to be positive. I have been sitting outside for quite a few hours and that has helped my mood quite a bit. I am going to a support group this evening and that should help also. I hope everyone has a good evening.

I have had trouble getting up and going the last 2 days. Saturday I got up at 10am and today I got up at 11am. I pray I can do better Monday.

Welcome MysticMissie.
So sorry for your loss; you have my sympathies. Dealing with grief on top of clinical depression can be a hard journey. I've been through it myself so can empathize. Love your attitude. God bless you. emoticon

I'll start off my August challenge with a new way to prepare a snack with celery stalks. Yum! I'm going grocery shopping today so I'm making a list for all snack ingredients that I need for this week.

I have lost a friend and family member recently, with the all ready maniac depression, it has been tough...I still am muddling through though, with charting food and exercise...which has been really easy because I can only manage 10 minutes a day for workouts and loss of appetite has cut down on remembering what I have eaten...I have only been here on this site two weeks and I feel revived each and every time I leave to walk the journey I now travel...Have a blessed day and I surely am looking forward to getting to know all of you...

Thanks for the information on the August challenge.
I do plan on participating and my special goal is to not eat any fast food. With my eating habits improving, my cravings are lessening so this will be a good challenge for me.

Mood wise I'm still doing fairly well , which makes my dog happy. She gets a lot more attention when I'm doing well.
Have a good day! emoticon emoticon

About the August team challenges, I can definitely exercise for at least 10 minutes for 3-4 days a week. However, I'm still working on drinking 8 glasses of water each day, but I'll do my best.

I have been part of this team for some time I am under the impression that the challenges are not required if I am wrong let me and the newbies get the correct impression thank you.

My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.

Hi everyone,

Welcome all the newcomers.

For those with questions about the August challenge; the goals are to drink 8 glasses of water each day and exercise for ten minutes 3-4 days each week.

Hope this helps. emoticon

@BlueJay ...I'm kind of confused myself; am new on this forum.

I see others posting about an August challenge. Is it something the depression group is doing? If so, what is it please? Thx

Other than that I am doing some better the last few days. I hope my mood will stay up, but a lot of it depends on how much chronic pain I have. Am trying to take walks with my dog early in the morning. emoticon
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I will do the August challenge but I wish we could think of something else to do. But I haven't come up with anything yet. I will think about it and hope you do also.

Building my bucket list and enjoying the ones I've accomplished!!!
I quit smoking and have visited 34 out of 50 states, went to Disneyland in 2014 for the first time, had African lobster in 2014, and went to second hand stores in Laguna Beach Cal.
Enjoyed a Thanksgiving Dinner in 80 degree weather in Cal. For the first time.

Six weeks during March and April of 2015, I completed four times a week with a trainer. Wow! at the age of 63!

Hope everyone has a good day. Going to be too hot again here..supposed to be near 104* the next few days. I am NOT a fan of that! Puts my walking at lunch on hold. But I will find other ways to get some fitness in. We watched a very good movie the other day called You're Not You with Hillary Swank. Very emotional movie, but also one that makes you stop and think of what you have and to live and not hide. I cried my eyes out..lol

Primrose, It sounds like you have typical Caffeine withdrawal my heart goes out to you. Make sure you are getting enough water.

I thought my weekend went absolutely horrible in regards to my eating plan, but once I logged it all in today it was not nearly as bad as I thought. I didn't go over my caloric goals at all :) but nutrition wise it was a bust and I can feel it! Today I am doing SOOO much better.

Good morning everyone.

Cloudy and cold here with on and on rain; I can't believe it's almost August. Doesn't bother me though, I like the rain and clouds. We leave for the beach on Saturday so I hope it clears by then.

Have a good week all!

Primrose going off caffeine is a really big thing. I had to cold turkey a couple years ago because of the reflux it caused & I suffered big time as did my sister recently. I wish you all the best.

here is a picture for you; maybe you can relate emoticon

Yeah! I managed to avoid caffeine, except for 2 sips of vending machine coffee that tasted like dishwashing water.

other than that:
a regular glum weekend day at work.
I'm starting to get worried about some unusual symptoms I've had for a few weeks - involves pain
like did my skull crack ?
did i get a concussion - does my brain really feel bruised?
did i have a stroke ?
is it extreme high blood pressure come back ?
severe withdrawal symptoms from caffeine addiction and caffeine poisoning?

if it goes on another week - i'll have to go see a dr.

I'm always too exhausted these days to blog much - but i have dozens of blogs in me to write up - i have to remind myself to keep things simple.

Last night I had dinner with the parents. We cooked so it was pretty good although I ate more bread sticks than I should have I still managed to stay with in goal. Today is going to be a good day, cause I decided. emoticon

I had an appointment with my therapist today. I told her all about my progress with Sparkpeople. Sparkpeople gives me a way to control something in my out of control life. I can control what I eat and what I do with my body. I exercise it instead of hurt it. I give it nutrients instead of ignoring it. I have to control something right now to keep me sane. I see her again in three weeks.

Friday went well, I gardened for 6 hours and was rewarded with ridiculously delicious produce. Saturday was horrible, I managed to stay with in my calorie range, but I spent a lot of the day in tears for no reason. Sunday I was just raw but I managed to stick to my plan so there is that. Emotionally I am just totally still off balance. I am going to try to hang out with a friend after work today. Hopefully that will help.

I tried something new for dinner tonight. A few weeks ago I found a recipe for Scrambled Tofu (which was a bit elaborate & spicy for me) so I simplified it & it was a great success. I'll definitely be having that again.

Deb - Thank you for finding the article on emotional eating. I know I eat because I'm bored, tired and feeling unloved, I just don't know how to change it. I'm hoping that by connecting with the folks on SP, I can ease those feelings. emoticon

I woke early this morning but was well rested & didn't need the nebuliser emoticon But I will use it just before I take the furbies for their walk.

Today I start putting together a booklet for my SiL's family tree so I can give it to him as part of his birthday gift next week.

apart from that I will be catching up on the house work that has been seriously neglected in recent weeks.

Have a great day emoticon

Pug, I have surfed the web on your behalf and have come up with two really good articles on "emotional eating".

www.helpguide.org/articles/diet-weig
ht
-loss/emotional-eating.htm


www.helpguide.org/articles/diet-weig
ht
-loss/emotional-eating.htm


I hope that they contain information that is pertinent to your situation and are of help. It is no fun when eating gets out of control. I can relate to being so depressed that you can't quit eating. Depression certainly exacerbates it. Indorty is right, chatting can help lift your spirits and hopefully help to restore your motivation.

Indorty, my PC is four years old and so far so good, but you never know. I love this machine, so I will be sorry to see it go in a couple of years and I will recycle mine, just like you have. One of my grandson's will want it if for nothing but playing games. It is a gaming computer, so the graphics are great. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend too. Mine is going to be great!

Things are going slowly this Saturday morning. I am in no rush to get anything except breakfast on the table. I am only watching Micah this morning and it doesn't look as if Jeni is coming home this morning to sleep after her 12 hour shift yesterday evening. She must have gone over to her boyfriend's so that she can get the sleep that she needs for tonight without Micah bothering her here. She will probably quit her job on Sunday anyway, because she has a working interview on Monday at 10:00 am and she needs to be in good shape for that. Working a 12 hour night shift will put a huge crimp in that, but she really needs the money and to work until she gets a new job for sure. Well, she has a huge decision to make and she will make the right choice for her I am sure. I wish her good luck no matter what her decision is tomorrow. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Deb, My old PC was 7 years old & starting to show signs of retiring. I will take into the place where I bought my new one & get it tidied up before passing it on to my little sister. Great about your DD taking her job life into her own hands.

Pug ... you certainly are in a slump but it can be reversed. Are you seeing anyone or on meds re the depression? I know all about being out of control. I also have had a very rough year & spiraled downhill to where I have gained loads of weight. I don't work so am able to nibble all day. I recently went back on antidepressants as I felt it was the only way I was going to get back on top of things. It was a big decision for me & thankfully my GP is very understanding but he agreed it was time. Now, once I get past the bout of asthma I will be able to work my way back to relosing the weight I regained emoticon

I wish you all the best & hope you can get the help you need.

Hi everybody - I'm very new to posting, usually just follow you all. Anyway I am really discouraged as I am out of control with my food intake, I do ok at work, but at home I lose it and scarf everything in site and usually none of it is healthy, I suffer from depression and am falling deeper into it because I feel so hopeless about losing weight and regaining some health (I am also diabetic, which is also out of control), /anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

INDORTY, Congratulations on the new computer. I love a new computer. I have a good one now, but it will have to be replaced soon. It is already four years old and out of date, but it is such a good unit that I hate to get rid of it. I will get a lap top next time I buy a computer. They are much more handy to have. Congratulations on the walk too. Using your walker is probably a wise idea. You want to safeguard yourself and not get injured.

CHRISTINA155, I hope that you had an awesome time with your husband on your day trip. It is always fun to do something special with a loved one.

IMSPARKLING2, Everyone should have a "me" day. There is nothing wrong with you treating yourself well and relishing it. I hope that you enjoyed it thoroughly. Be careful about walking without your walker, you don't want to end up with a fall.

Well, today is Friday and the beginning of a new weekend. We will find out today if my daughter is fired from her job. If she is it is not the end of the world. She has four new interviews already set up for this week and next week. She did not sit on her hands she got out there and started looking seriously for a new job, when she found out that she might be let go from her present position. We'll see how it goes today. She is leaving her present position no matter what. It just depends on whether she resigns or they let her go. She is having a working interview this morning at 9:00 am, so I hope that she does well. This position is for a vet technician/receptionist at a 24 hour specialty pet hospital. It is a very good job with decent benefits and upward mobility. I wish her good luck!!! There are no real plans for this weekend, so far. I guess that it will be a good reading weekend. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Today has been a very successful day. I was able to buy a new computer today and it is so fast compared to the old one. I have updated the software and downloaded my face programs & installed them. Now I'm tucked up in bed watching some TV to wind down so I can sleep.

Sleep well everyone. emoticon

I had a me day. I did things for myself. I even dared to walk 1/2 mile without my walker. I dont think I will do that any too soon agin. LOl I was able to do it but it was difficult for me to keep my balance

Just keep focused and your dreams will turn into realities. With God as your Master Trainer, all things are possible!

Today is another babysitting day with grandsons Hayden and Blaine. I do so enjoy my boys!! I hope that I can still get on the elliptical for an hour today with both of them there. Sometimes Blaine interrupts me and I don't get in all my minutes, but I will try. I have Blaine Friday morning early too. It's been a busy week with all the extra babysitting and the stresses of Jeni looking for a new job. I just hope that Friday pans out the way that she hopes it will and that she doesn't lose her current job until she finds a new one. We'll see. Sending out positive energy and hugs to all that need them! Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon
