Two weeks have flown by and there has been a bit of progress, with the help of Wonder Woman.
Last week I took my daughter to the cinema to see Wonder Woman. Since watching that movie my daughter has decided that she wants to be a fit as Wonder Woman or more precisely Gal Gadot. Due to this and to keep herself motivated she has decided that she is going to be my trainer. I am not complaining. I now have a poster of Wonder Woman on my wall to motivate me… lol!!! I remember watching Wonder Woman when I was child and Lynda Carter was in the lead role. I used to spin round for ages to see if my clothes would change, they never did, I would just end up falling over.
We had been running a couple of times before watching the movie but our training routine has become more structured over the past 10 days or so. I hope we keep it up. I doubt whether I would actually end up being as fit as Wonder Woman but it is good to have a goal. lol!
About a month ago my general “well being” had become pretty low. I couldn’t stop crying, I was really emotional, over-reacting about everything. I felt as though I was in quick sand and the more I struggled against it, the quicker I was sinking.There were a lot of reasons why I was feeling that way, in fact it was because there were so many things that I couldn’t stop myself from sinking. I had to admit that I needed help.
So I toddled off to the Doctors who I swear is sick to death of seeing me this year and explained how I was feeling. She told me that my brain was struggling to process everything at the moment and that I needed to give it a rest. It was like trying to work a computer with a thousand different tabs up. I was prescribed an anti-depressant (happy pills.. yay) to help me to relax. It is working I am not as emotional and I am coping a lot better. I have not made this well known within my social circles not because I am ashamed but because I don’t want to keep explaining things.
I didn’t ever want to go on anti-depressants again. I had been on them before after I had my daughter as I had post-natal depression which would be 17 years ago now. It took me a long time to admit that I needed help this time. They are not a permanent solution for me just a temporary fix.
IN OTHER NEWS…
I had to go to the dentist again. I mentioned in the last post at the beginning of the month that I was in pain again with my mouth. My filling/crown had become loose and it was causing some discomfort. I have had it fixed but there is still some pain there so we will see how it goes.
So, last time I set myself 4 things to do over the past two weeks. Here is my progress so far…
1. Is to create a list of all the things I want I to complete this year and set out a schedule.
Currently in progress – To do this I have printed off calendar pages from printablecalendars.com. I have scheduled several things I want to complete but I still have some way to go.
2. Not play on the games so much – limit it to maybe 30 minutes a day or less
Completed – I am not spending any longer than 30 minutes on games. Due to this a few times I have actually forgotten about them and have not been on at all.
3. Go Running… I have been a few times need to try for twice a week.
Completed – Though still in progress. I need to keep it up.
4. Revisit my Health and Fitness Journal.
In Progress – I have got loads of things now to add to this so I need to spend a little longer on it.
Here are the goals for over the next two weeks and possibly beyond…
- Running twice a week – start building up stamina
- Carry on with Health and Fitness Journal – add a “Well Being” section. (Might move it into a ring binder.
- Healthy Eating – Organise my lunch better for work. Get ideas so can start when come back from holiday.
- Increase my Water intake
- Start a strength workout – need a stronger core.
- Begin Planking… again!
- Keep to a schedule
Seven things this time… I am hoping to add to this list at the end of every Health and Well Being post so I can update a managed progress rather than just random blog posts.
Next Health and Well Being Sunday – Sunday 2 July 2017
