Depressed? But workin on a plan

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

It's back to work in a couple of hours. It will be a shock to my system, A BIG ONE!


I haven't done anything resembling exercise, I haven't eaten any fruits or veggies, in fact I rarely got out of my pj's. I didn't go thru any of the stuff to be donated or returned. Basically, I felt powerless to move even when I told myself just to get up and work for 10 minutes (Fly Lady). I disgusted myself.

With the return to work, there is hope to be more like myself, but am thinking I might be
experiencing depression. If that's true, I even know the reason, my workout place is closed until April. It's not just a workout place, it's where my daily socializing occurs. I feel lost.
While I can't replace those exercise friends (makes me sad) I can go back to swimming, but its before work, at an indoor pool and you are only allowed 20 minutes to swim. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!

I plan to buckle down and try swimming at my 24 Fitness on Wed morning.

I now have about 5.5 hours before I have to get up, so Good night all. I might say pleasant dreams, but I really do hate those suckers, so just Good night.

    This time of year is often difficult, especially for those with a challenge of being susceptible to depression. You have a great plan. emoticon I understand how difficult self care can be during these times. However, this is when we most need to make that extra effort. It has been my experience that to move anyway helps. Remember, you are not alone. There are many contributing factors, but eventually they can be resolved.
    I wish you the best, and hope you regain your joie de vie soon. emoticon

    Ok guys I did not go to bed and get the 5.5 hours sleep. I stayed up and only got 4 hours sleep (like normal), ARGH!

    I am still planning on getting up for swimming before work. Please keep your fingers crossed the pool isn't closed tomorrow morning (it happens there).

    Hi, I suffer from depression and it sounds like that is what you are experiencing. What I do is make myself get up and do things, it's hard, but if I don't I'll never do anything. Usually by making myself get up and do things it helps me feel better.
