I feel thick

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

ugh. I found it hard to get out and walk while in Wisconsin. My aunt's funeral went well and it was good to be there. I was a pallbearer for the first time. It was an honor albeit privately emotional.

I had a couple of champion moments with portion control, but even then, cake twice in one day??? It's been a long time since that's happened. The calorie count was high, but not due to my secret weapon -- chocolate. I made sure I had a little chocolate every day -- and sometimes it was very little, like two small pieces.

The problem was more with the feeling of depression afterward returning home. I had 5 hour energy shots as substitutes for my b vitamin shots. I don't respond noticably to b vitamin supplements, but I figure they are doing some good. Well, the desire to sleep and overeat has been with me, and the sloth and fatigue --- I took 3 naps today --- ridiculous.

But, it seems as though the depression may be lifting. Maybe I'll get back to the workouts and reduce this thick feeling.

    Hugs to you, Strings - it's hard to lose family. Took me a year after my mother passed away before I was willing to not be a hermit any more.

    Be good to yourself, take time, and do what you need to do - it will pass.

    Thanks -- I lost a diamond out of the new ring my husband gave me for our 25th anniversary -- got it on our cruise over new year's. All the grief kinda piled on again. I'm trying to dig out . . .

    It never fails to surprise me how the body responds to stress and grief.

    I hope you've managed to re-group, re-coup, re-charge...and all the other "re's" no need to revive May.
