I'm coming out of the doldrums, sorry about the gloomy post. I know why I was there and know I have to drag myself out of that place. I've always said that life isn't always perfect; every day isn't a sunny day, there are some dark, cloudy and rainy days. I just have to watch that my rainy day mood doesn't turn into several days or weeks at a time.
Work has also been extremely stressful for the last several months. There is light at the end of the tunnel (and it's not the light from a train that's about to hit me!) LOL. Although that is how I've felt the last 3 or 4 months! Then something clicked when people started planning their days off during the upcoming holidays. I checked my available time off and I have 8 days to take before the end of the year! Huh? OK! That train coming through the dark tunnel can hit someone else while I'm gone; I'm taking some days off! [big sigh]
The weekends have been great, I'm enjoying the nice weather that Texas had during October. And even almost halfway through November it's still nice. I've been out riding some great off road trails. In fact, the last couple of weekends I rode for about 5 hours! And could have ridden more too. It's been a great cardio workout!
This has all resulted in a big change for me. When I'm stressed I don't eat, I lose my appetite. And with all the biking I do on the weekends, and while I was sick a few weeks ago, the antibiotic I was on made me nauseated too... The result: I've love over 20 lbs in the last 2 months! I'm able to wear a size 32 waist pants that I haven't worn in over 5 years! Coworkers and friends have really noticed!
Now I'm headed off to visit friends in Houston and of course visit the renaissance festival. Huzzah!
Y'all have a great weekend!
