It’s like a heavy blanket squashing me

I woke up this morning, after sleeping for almost 10 hours, and felt like I’d been walloped. I’m not sure if it’s my depression or my body reacting to a week’s worth of hard partying on vacation or both.

Because I gained weight (again) on vacation, I’m starting a green smoothie cleanse this week to help take it back off.

I have SO much to get done..laundry to finish and fold and put away. Suitcases that need to be dealt with. A kitchen that needs to be cleaned because it looks like a bomb went off. But I just don’t have the energy.

I’m also at a loss as to what to do to keep on my fitness and weight loss journey. I’m sure I’ll figure out something…I’m tempted to try a couch to 5K again because I really do want to run. I mean I can “run” with Robo-Bob in my living room and I LOVE that but it gets old after awhile. And I need to keep changing things up to keep me interested and occupied, yanno?

But right now? I’m going to finish my peanut butter, banana, pineapple, strawberry, baby spinach smoothie (which I know..it sounds gross but it’s really not) and go collapse in the bedroom and binge Orange Is The New Black, probably interspersed with a couple of naps, until dinner time this afternoon. Because that’s all I have the energy for right now.

  1. Take care… The transition between vacation and back-to-life is hard on most people, already. Add depression to that, no wonder you are left with no energy. xx

    1. Yup. But I did a few self care things today–I went and picked up books I had on hold at the library, I bought some Vaseline for nasty ass dry feet and some lip balm that smells like Coca Cola. And I made a list of shit I need to get done tomorrow. I’m downloading “Frankenstein” from Librivox (it’s the August book for my book club) to listen to while I clean house tomorrow and finish the laundry.

      I’m just glad I don’t go back to work officially until the 7th.

      1. Oh, that’s cool… we should always have a couple of days off after our vacation, before hitting work again. It would make things so much easier! Glad you enjoyed your day, and I hope your list of things for tomorrow isn’t too long đŸ˜‰ xx
