Good Goblin Evening to you!
What a reMarkable weekend it’s been for sure! I think I’ve felt every emotion this weekend and I didn’t lose my crap either.. Well made Mark! 🙂
Let’s break it down:
Friday: Worked out extensively after work, felt depression lurking. Not sure why. Lack of clouds? Not at all, it was a sunny day. Depression can sometimes hit us for no reason. Out of the blue sky. Is something wrong with me? No, not.
You’re just a different kind of brain. A unique brain that requires a particular type of care and can entirely lead a fulfilling life filled with dreams and desires just like an anyone else.
Saturday: hit the gym especially hard, and it was a terrific upper body workout if I do say so myself! My shoulders are exploding! Woot! I then met up with my buddy for lunch post workout, and we chowed down on some delicious five guys grub. Man protein is so critical When I left I felt like I ate a cow, which I did. However, I rest assured knowing that I earned that burger and it was every bit delicious as I thought it would be while ordering it! But I compromised and got a small fry because I don’t need chips.. Just a taste Mark. You don’t need the whole buffet Mark. 🙂
Sunday: Today I was supposed to hit the gym hard, but during my walk today in Volunteer Park I felt my lower back start to ache. I fired up the FitBod app that I use for bodybuilding and realized my back recovery percentage was at 43% and I knew today should be a rest day because I’ve been pushing myself extra hard lately. Not because I’m manic, but because I have a goal in mind of who and what I want to be. There is nothing irrational about that.
So what’s with the depression? Why do I feel depressed?
Oh! Dave Ramsey arrived! You received this gift from your parental units who felt that you could use this and learn from it.
Yes. You’re right. I became super defensive when I unboxed the material and saw the various elements. It was new, it was overpowering, and it was causing me high anxiety. Instead of racing for the vodka I went to the grocery instead and got some junk food to carb load on AKA binge. That’s my heroine. Food.
But hey it’s been over two years since my last drink! That’s pretty groovy, and a HUGE achievement!
It may be October, and on November 4th we’re turning back our clocks back however my motivation and dedication to staying fit and healthy will only charge forward!
Last, the other day on CNN there was an article written about a recent study that well.. I don’t want to give it away.. All I can tell you is it’s eye-opening.
