Feeling the Blahs
Sunday, November 18, 2018
I’ve definitely stumbled and fallen into the Early Winter Blahs.
Half the battle is recognizing this, right?
I haven’t completely given up on my Goals...it’s just that I’m having difficulties finding my motivation. Right now, I’m just pleased to find the gumption to get out of bed. Half the time I even manage to get dressed.
Luckily I can recognize the signs pointing towards slipping down the slope into depression. I’m just thankful that I’ve managed to avoid the worst of it. Doesn’t make it easier to deal with, but at least I understand where the negativity is coming from. Now it’s just a matter of weathering the worst of it and sailing off into calmer waters when this little hiccough passes.
Until then I’ll focus all my energy into Maintaining and not falling back into the really bad habit of trying to eat away the blues. I put away Mr. Scale for a while, too. I’ll bring it back out again when I feel like I can look at the numbers objectively again and not want to cry if I gain a pound. It’s hard to remember that it isn’t the end of the world when that happens when I’m also dealing with other Blahs. So, Mr. Scale is on vacation for a while.
