Out of the Darkness...

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Last week was an AWFUL week and it followed me through the weekend. Funny how I can feel on top of the world on one day (last Monday) and then Tuesday sees me in the throes of depression and all that goes with it. I did NOT cope well, was having significant back pain, EXTREMELY compulsive in my eating with cravings through the roof, and rounded out the week with some behaviors I have not resorted to in awhile. Not going to go into details, but it was DANGEROUS. I did finally go to the doc on Friday and he said I probaby had a pulled muscle in my back. Makes sense since I did supersets on Monday again - have to be more careful. Tomorrow was still AWFUL - felt the blanket over me most of the day.

But then.... THE SUN CAME OUT.

Today is new, better, with new possibilities and I'm in control again. I haven't had a time like that in awhile. (And I haven't had a period in MONTHS, but did this week - probably from a biopsy I had the week before that.) So I really do believe hormones were involved. Anyway, today I packed my food for the day and I've stayed on track, drinking water AND going to take Lipton to the park after work.

Oh, and the new guy I'm seeing? He wants us to work out together when he gets off work tonight. (Okay, get your mind out of the gutter - he really means WORK OUT... at the gym and everything... LOL.)

    So glad the sun came out :) The new guy I am seeing works out about 5x a week - and I see this in our future as well! LOL At this point I'd be afraid to get all out of breath-y-ish emoticon

    You got this - no worries!

    How's the back doing? I hope you are feeling much better! Back pain is nothing to sneeze at.
    Keep on pressing forward and you will get there!

    I am happy to hear that you're feeling like yourself again :) It sucks when the darkness sets in overnight, really screws with the head and makes everything seem bad. Glad that you are through it and back in the sunshine :)

    I'm liking this new guy in your life! He seems good for you!

    I get how things can get out of control. I was like that last week, but I am getting back on the track. I have specific goals, and thinking about them isn't going to make them happen.

    Glad to know you are feeling much better!
