So does stuffing your face with ice cream, Oreo cookies and chips all day while trying to motivate yourself to do ANYTHING classify as a state of depression? Well whatever it is, I'm not liking it...It all started with my sister, Mary, surprising Robert and I with a visit this weekend...I was so excited! I haven't seen any of my family since late April and I'm really starting to miss them all! She left yesterday evening and ever since I've been nothing but down in the dumps...This morning I slept in until 10:00 even though my body was ready to get up at 7:00. I just didn't want to "get up." Once I did, I took Bella out to relieve herself and managed to build enough enthusiasm to smile and talk in a happy voice while she ran around and played with her ball. Once we got back in the house I plopped my butt down on the couch with ice cream and Oreo cookies while I downed my gloomy mood with good ol' Lifetime...The thing about being down is the more you ignore the things you should be doing so you can feed your mood, the more it puts you in a bad mood! For instance, I should have washed my car today, did some laundry, and got in a run earlier then what I did...However, even though I stuck my head in the sand over these things I was really happy with myself that I managed to take Bella to the park for her 2 mile walk, then go back an hour later and run 2 miles myself:) I'm still eating this damn ice cream but maybe that run was just what I needed to start feeling just a bit better...Anyone else struggle with missing your family and having days like this? What do you do to jump start yourself OUT of those moods?!?
