Amazing, but true!
Saturday morning. Guess what I did yesterday afternoon? I went to the gym and walked. It hurt like a big dog, in my hips and lower back, and I did it anyway. Forty minutes, which wasn't the 60 I was shooting for and is a whole lot more than I've done in months. No lingering pain today, so I'm going to try it again this afternoon. Oh, yeah, and today will make day 4 of staying on plan with my food, so YEAH for me!
Dr. Karen mentioned that meditation would be helpful for me in fighting the depression, and I think I'll give that a try today, too. I've done it in the past and it really does feel wonderful and help keep me focused on the present rather than obsessing about the past or the future. I've got lots of meditative CDs, so it's just a matter of choosing which one to use. Pleasant task for after I get back from my walk.
