A Serious case of the Blahs

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

It is a bleak and dreary afternoon here in the Chicagoland area. As a sit here waiting eagerly for the clock to strike 12:00, I realize how much the sun affects me. I've never really been an outdoorsy kinda person. I don't go tanning(I am dark enough & I would prefer not to get skin cancer.), I don't know how to swim well and this may sound crazy, but I am not that fond of grass. Anyhoo I do like the sunshine. It is what wakes me in the morning and keeps me going while at work. ( I am one of the lucky few with a window) emoticon

So, on this cloudy emoticonrain threatened day I am struggling to stay awake.

Blah. I hope tomorrow is more upbeat.

    I hate dreary grey days. I have been very tired the past couples of days. What activity I've had has been forced so I'm taking the day off tomorrow. :) Hope your day gets better.

    Me too! I didn't quite hop out of bed but I got up with sense of you're doing this a.m. workout for you. So get up & hit it. I was late for work but mowsied into the office at 11ish today. After my workout this morning with FitTv, Gilad & All Star Workouts, I just wanted to run a tub of HOT water & lounge in the tub & then nap. I just know the idle mind is the devil's workout shop so I am here. . . .

    God bless & WAKE up! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Dee

    I totally know how you feel :) I am always so affected by the weather. A day with no sunshine can get me down and I feel like I have 0 energy. Hang in there :)

    Boy, oh boy... I feel the very same way today. I'm in Northern, IL and it's been raining all morning. I was tired to begin with, but with the rain and no sunshine, things just feel like they require a lot more effort.

    Hopefully you (and I) can hang in there, get through the day and feel better tomorrow. :)

    I'm not an outdoor type person either. I used to, about 150 pounds ago. Now I'm on all kinds of meds that I'm don't react that well to long exposure to sun.
    I have 2 pre-teens on summer break, their dad is in Iraq. I decided not to have a schedule for a while. Until I figure out a good balance of them having fun outdoors and me not passing out while outside..
    My temp fix is not the greatest, but after dinner we've picked up a messed up routine of going for a small walk (about .93 miles round trip to about 1.43 miles round trip, depending on the route we take)
    It seems to be a good stress reliever from the day's sibling arguing and we get to spend quiet time talking about silly things and how much we're going to do things when he comes back for r&r and finally home for good in november.
    It seems to be working for me/us. We just started, haven't seen weight loss or anything.. but for me this is the beginning of my journey.
