Quick update

Sorry guys. I'm still all messed up, now firmly entrenched in a down cycle. Ugh. All the negative thoughts and hopelessness that goes along will it can wear you out, let me tell you! I thought if I could get through my monthly time that it would get better, but nope, still here. SO, now my plan is just to try to walk on the treadmill a few times this week and see if the exercise will act as a natural antidepressant. Fingers crossed.

Speaking of treadmill and needing to walk on it...I weighed in on Sunday and wow. I'm officially up 10 pounds! I have GOT to get a handle on my snacking. My meals aren't really that big of a problem for the most part, but I've definitely become a snack monster the past 3 or 4 months and it has certainly contributed to that ten pounds. I MUST try to get a grip. Truthfully, I'm not feeling 100% motivated to go back to counting calories or anything that drastic, but if I don't turn this around again soon, I'm going to have to do it because some of my clothes are not fitting right anymore! I've been wearing the same pair of jeans for the last month.

I know what to it's time to actually do it, which is frankly the hard part, isn't it? Sadly, being in a down cycle means I want to fill up on comfort food all day long, so I'm fighting an uphill battle right now honestly. I keep telling myself at least my diet/exercise is perhaps the one thing in my life I can sort of control, so there's that, right?

Well, that's where I am right now, in a nutshell.


  1. A down cycle is a tough time to try and start up anything. I always figure it's best to start when I'm feeling good and hope I gain enough momentum to keep me going when I'm feeling bad.

    I'm so sorry you're still feeling so cruddy:( Sure wish there was something I could do.

    I'm still praying for a breakthrough in those areas that have been a problem for so long.
    Love you.

  2. I'm continuing to pray for you, my friend. Some days all one can do is breathe....and you know what? On those days that is enough.
    Just hold on....and remember that "this too shall pass".
    A big hug to you, Missy.
