Yeah, it hasn't been one of my better weeks

I've been horrid about keeping up with exercise and SP. I've been eating fairly well, but I know that eating well isn't the only way to lose weight. I'm hoping to get back on track this weekend.
Some of it has been depression. I've been without my meds for most of the week, which doesn't help matters at all. It makes it so hard for me to motivate myself to do anything. It's part of the reason my apartment is a mess again. On top of that, it's... that time of the month, so I'm mentally and physically on the outs anyway. I know that these are excuses. But it makes it hard for me to push past it anyway to do what I need to. The only thing I have been keeping up with is my Swap-Botting. Because it's easy for me to sit at the computer and do so many of the things that I need to do.
I'm trying to work on my plan for next week. I'm going to get into the habit of exercising first thing in the morning while my husband is getting ready for work. I'm going to alternate strength and cardio like I should be. I'm going to ask Rich if he can start a load of laundry while I'm working out. As soon as that is finished, I'm going to work on one cleaning item. Then I'm going to sit down to do some computer work/update my info on SP. I'm going to try to get back to the 15 on/15 off schedule of cleaning and fun.
I also need to remember to look at my FlyLady calendar so I can remember what I need to do cleaning-wise on a daily basis. And I need to remember to schedule in fun.
It depresses me a bit that I need to actually schedule my life right now, down to scheduling to have fun. I've always preferred to be spontaneous. But I'm not getting anything done by being spontaneous. And I can't continue on this way - my weight can't take it, my mind can't take it and my spirit can't take it.
I'm willing to take suggestions. Anyone that can give me ideas of how to get myself on track, I'll appreciate the help. Anyone that wants to help keep me accountable, I'd appreciate that. Whether it's just for the weight-loss (which I am getting a bit of thanks to THE_NEW_ME's 31 day challenge and the family Biggest Loser) or house cleaning or crafting or anything else. I can use help.
