So… I’m back

I am not going to have any pictures for you today. And the long and short of why I have been gone, besides loosing my camera, is depression. Depression is something that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. And yes, there are some days that it gets the best of me. This last week it was the combo of not feeling well, too busy at work, gaining 6lbs overnight, everyone telling me that I may be pregnant when I know I’m not (as some of you know, that it my deepest desire). But I am starting to feel better. Depression isn’t just something that you have. Its a long journey; a fight, that you will never be done fighting. But its worth it. So… I am back and thank you for sticking with me.


I woke up yesterday morning and started to get ready to work out. I have wanted to purchase ZUMBA videos, but I was unsure whether or not I would like it. So, I dragged my friend Liz out of bed and we headed to one of the local gyms to try it out.

When we arrived, we were a bit surprised. I was expecting a class full of people my age. Well, what we got was a room full of retired women that put us to shame. Most of them never broke a sweat. Me on the other hand… well I was sweating in places that don’t have sweat glands. I was red and breathing hard (forgot my inhaler), I watched myself in the mirror and I looked nothing like the size 2 instructor, but I had the time of my life.

It was an amazing workout, but I will wear shorts next time – No pants. I came home and passed out for about 3 hours and never got my energy back the rest of the day. I am buying those videos on payday. Maybe those mystery 6lbs will go away.

Other than that, I have just been a bit hormonal lately. I am tired and I cry over the stupidest things. I cried yesterday because I was thirsty and I was 4 blocks from home (too far). So I stopped at a friend’s house that is one block closer than mine was to get a glass of water. Silliness.

I am working on the house today. So lets hope that I can keep it together long enough to get clothes clean. HA HA.

Well, that’s it. No pictures from yesterday, but I am back on the camera addiction and by george, there will be shots of today. Have fun all and I will talk to you later.
