Coming back up
Friday, April 24, 2015
I slipped into a depression this week, not a deep one but enough to affect my diet, exercise and relationships with people. I have cyclic depression, so this is normal for me, and I'm grateful it wasn't deeper. Years ago when I was single, it was worse. Now I can't just work and curl up and sleep when I get home. I have to take care of my son because its been a busy week for my husband too. Not giving in to that desire to disappear and sleep helps me get back on track.
But, I didn't track, I didn't move, and the chocolate won. And I'm feeling detached from things because I was out of it for a bit. But I'm happy to be back on spark. Its nice, there were two blogs that were about gardening and veggies that I could read, relate to and post back. That connection helps.
So I know my weigh in on Saturday may not be great, but I've been through this enough to know there are going to be highs and lows in this journey. So . . . I'm back and going out now to take a walk.
