Before Christmas, I had to face the very real fact that I was dealing with moderate depression. And I needed to either get my life on track or I needed to get medicinal help in pulling back up to normal.
Instead of going to drugs first, I knew I had to take control of some areas of life that had gotten out of hand - primarily my health. I was using food as my drug. And lack of energy was a major symptom.
So I started focusing on what I was eating. I started seeking daily activity.
It hasn't been easy. It's been better.
I go for my 3 month check in with my doctor this week. I still don't think I need medication for depression but I think I need something more to get me on track with diet and exercise.
I have a lot of knowledge. I know what I need to do. I know the right and best way to do it.
But something still drives me towards my weaknesses.
I have real issues finding time to exercise. I don't feel like I am just making excuses. Finding time in our very busy schedules is a Big Challenge.
But my eating... I've got some serious food issues, I think. Food has a lot of control over me.
Next steps - continue to focus on improving my diet and continue to seek time to be active.
