The next step I have taken toward improving my health was joining Weight Watchers. I have been on the program before and was successful, except I didn’t continue the lifestyle. Sensible Girlfriend has joined with me and will hold me accountable. In fact, I’ve already tried excuses to avoid going to a meeting but she reminded me why we’re doing this. In other words, my excuses fall on deaf ears.
As far as exercise yesterday, I visited that dreadful grocery store, ironing, and some light housework. Yeah, the stuff that does make up exercise but I don’t know how to quantify it.
One more action I took toward my mental health is returning to my photography club meetings. Last night the speaker was discussing projects he works on for years and publishes books based upon a particular theme. The presentation was interesting because most of his experience is with film he developed himself—a dying art due to the digital age.
The photographer who spoke last night, is trying to put together a workshop in Yellowstone National Park this Fall. I want to attend this workshop because my daughter lives near one of the entrances to the park. When we went there for her graduation, the park was full of visitors because of the season. So….I could go to the workshop and visit with my daughter. How could I ask for any better future goal/plan.
Anyway, one thing I always try to do when my mind is stuck in the muck is to make plans for the future. It could be for the next day or the next year. The follow through is what I struggle with.
As I trudge forward an evil, mini-April sits on my shoulder, whispering….you’re going to crash! This almost feels like a hypomanic state, and that always ends with a long term depression. My fingers are crossed that my goals to improve my mind and body, the crash won’t come to fruition.
