I've been in a bit of a funk for the past couple of weeks. I think a lot of it has to do with the weather and my lack of exercise lately. It's what my husband describes as "depression" (spoken by a person who's never experienced true clinical depression)-- the wintertime funk that is a self-perpetuating cycle of cabin fever -> decreased energy -> decreased activity -> further decreased energy -> further decreased activity ad nauseum.

Yesterday I was talking to my friends Meagan and Somer, and both were helpful in trying to motivate me to just GET MOVING again. The weather yesterday afternoon was in the 40s, so Somer suggested I take a walk outside. Meagan told me that I needed to run a mile. Just a mile. That's all.

So after work yesterday I went home, let the dog out, and ran a mile on the treadmill while watching SVU (I don't know why, but SVU is my favorite thing to watch while working out). Then I made dinner and ate as soon as C got home from work. Then the three of us went to the Monon Trail and walked a bit. It ended up being a little colder/windier than expected, so it was a very short walk. It was still good to get outside though.

I still feel irrationally tired today, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. Let's hope I can do something else today to help me get out of my funk. I'm open to suggestions!!


  1. Aww I hope you can snap out of it. I hate that feeling. Seems like you're on the right track though!

  2. Perk Up Buttercup...It is practically spring this week :)
