Rare Blog

Saturday, January 09, 2010

After two and a half years on Sparkpeople I have apparently blogged less than a dozen times. Maybe I should start again and see how it goes.

Usually I have enough things to do to keep plenty busy. And, when I'm not busy, I'm too tired to blog. Maybe a blog is a good outlet even if no one else ever reads it.

I've told a few people that I've been feeling a little depressed for the last week or so. Maybe it is just the overcast skies and lack of sunshine - SAD seasonal affective disorder. Maybe it is because I've been eating too much sugary food and especially carb-laden cookies and stuff. I do seem to be pulling out of it now that work at my volunteer "job", Love INC, has resumed. I'm seeing my friends a co-workers again after a two-week lull. Let's see how it all works out. I will also watch my diet more closely and increase my social interactions. I'll also start counting my blessings "one by one" so I'll be reminded of "what the Lord has done." I've got thousands of things to be thankful for.

    Thanks to Lehulady for the tips, Celest for the reminder to be thankful for cooler days, and Leesa for the reminder. I really didn't expect anyone to read my Blog but I'm glad you guys did.

    I was up in the foothills Norty of Yosemite earlier this week (about 3500 feet elevation) and did get some partly cloudy skies but it was nice to do a little work outdoors and out of town. Today we had a pretty sunny day but we opened a couple of the really large warehouse doors and let the sun shine in. I'm feeling a lot better today. I also had cut back on carbs and sweets. Maybe that is part of it . emoticon

    Hi, I have SAD, too. January and February are hard months here for me (I was raised in Southern California). I try to stay away from the carbs and sweets especially during these months and I make sure I take vitamin D (with calcium) and I use a full-spectrum light when I'm on the computer. It seems to help. I am also lucky that I live in Folsom and can head up Highway 50 and find sun--I'm going to try to do that at least once a week til spring has sprung...

    Why do you think nobody reads your blogs.....already two have!

    You're sad because of the overcast skies and I wish we had overcast skies lol its so blazing hot here that it is making exercise very hard. Everything has to be done after dark and thats when I'm busiest. Sigh still eating right and exercising has to be slotted in to achieve my goals doesn't it?!
    Hope you feel a bit better as you change your eating again cos those sugars and carbs will do it for you in the "blues dept."
