Trying to Figure Out How to Get Back on Track
Tuesday, January 18, 2011
January hasn't been the big change that I was hoping for. The workouts that I've been planning on doing, the healthy eating, the cleaning and organizing... none of it. Some of it is depression, which is a constant that I've been dealing with. I know that I need to call and make an appointment with a therapist, but I've got major phone-phobia and making the call has been literally impossible for me to do. Some of it is general lethargy. I've been dealing with a horrid chest cold that is sapping everything from me and causing a lack of sleep, so I know that's some of it. But it doesn't feel like all of it. I'm going to make an appointment to have some blood work done/meet with my doctor to see what all might be wrong with me. I know that there are health issues in my family so it can't hurt. I'm also dealing with "where do I start?" when it comes to cleaning and organizing.
I know that I need to get back on track. I know that getting out and walking, at the very least, will help me deal with SAD. I know that getting away from the computer and playing with my boys will help. It's just a matter of making myself do it. Which, combined with the lethargy and depression, is sometimes difficult to do.
Does anyone have suggestions to help me out with this? I can use them. Because I NEED to get healthier, mentally and physically. And I'm having a hard time doing it alone.
