Follow up to resolutions

My first week was amazing. Second week was equality ok, HOWEVER I did not add in the exercise I had wanted. And It was only one persons fault (THIS GIRL)  I lost stamina, and gave up.  I had accepted that its alot of work to eat right and get exercise in and I was just EXHAUSTED!!

January in UTAH kicks your BUTT! 

This is a pic of the Salt Lake Valley covered in Inversion.  It is nasy yucky air trapped for us to breath every day.  When you take that and add SAD.  It is just NO GOOD!

Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD

What is seasonal affective disorder?

Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is type of depression. It occurs during certain seasons of the year — most often fall or winter. It is thought that shorter days and less daylight may trigger a chemical change in the brain leading to symptoms of depression. Light therapy and antidepressants can help treat SAD."  

With all that doom and GLOOM :) aside. I am going to keep pushing and keep myself accountable.
I will be drinking my water and eating better.  No excuse.

However those of you dealing with SAD I am so sorry, and know im Praying for you!!   


  1. Your awful inversion day is about he same as our oh-let's-go-out-and-play day.

  2. VERY TRUE!! So glad that Utah inversion is all I get the privilege to breath. At least for now! One day we will come visit.

  3. Struggling with a similar challenge. Any ideas to get past it?

  4. My main goal at the moment is drinking enough water and getting enough AND not too much sleep. I try to sleep between 7-9 hr a night. ANYTHING more then that makes me feel worse. Not sure if it is really the best option, but it works well so far. I also try to get out for at least a short walk each day. Even though it is FREEZING here I know that mid day sun is good for me. So I try to take one break a day so that I do see sunlight and I get it on my somewhat uncovered face!
