Very late getting in the Pawse this week emoticon

It wasn't a very good week all in all. Last weekend I had a depressive episode, the first in a long time which knocked me for six. I really don't feel like taking care of myself when I am in that place, I seek out a lot of comfort food, exercise is the last thing I want to do so I didn't really do very much over the weekend. Yes, I am very annoyed but I am not going to beat myself up about it either, its over and I am looking forward to a better week ahead.

I did lose weight - only 200g - but a loss is a loss and I will take it with gratitude.

This week I really felt things getting on top of me, a combination of work, family and study. I sometimes wonder have I taken too much on but I can't change that now. I have to accept this is the hand I have for the next few months and I have to try and work around it. My health is vital so I have to keep up with the exercise but I need to also remember that its more about food and eat well and look after my diet. If I do it won't matter so much if I need to miss a run to do a paper or go to an extra class.

This week I am going to work on my mental health and get myself back to 100% where that is concerned and just plan my week better so I can fit in all I need to do. I'm also going to be more accountable re food and not have as many treats as I allowed myself this week.

    Good luck. Been some similar struggles with me. You know in your head what you need to do, but making it happen, especially with depression, can be that much harder. You can do it.
