I've been feeling pretty on edge lately and wondering if I needed to go back on my medicine. I really don't want to because I stopped taking it because I felt like it made me want to eat all. the. time. I've also known that I had some hormones (dern things) that needed to settle down as I switched things up, so I've been trying to hold out.
When I went to my doctor in July he told me that one option was 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week could do as well as any antidepressant in my case, but Robert was out of town for two weeks after that and I was too far in a hole to make myself do it.
For the past couple of weeks I've been getting up early to have my quiet times, and most days I get some time before the kids awake. One morning I thought I'd have time later in the day so I slept in and that day was horrible! I missed that time! Anyway, yesterday I was awake so I got up even earlier and had time to exercise too. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I started out on the wii fit, then passed it on to the kids and headed in to the treadmill. Thus far I have not enjoyed the treadmill frankly, because I get really bored! But with my new phone I had music to play full blast (so I didn't know if the kids were fighting!) and I just walked away! I had to stop because we had somewhere to be, but I didn't want to. I was having my own little church!
The day went soooooo well yesterday. I felt much, much better and it translated into my kids attitudes as well. (Funny how that happens!) Got up again today without any trouble and expect the same result.
I usually lose my motivation to exercise consistently because I don't really need to lose weight, but feeling better is something that matters to me. Ending up more fit will be a secondary bonus.
Hope You have a great day!
