After vaguely making a connection between eating poorly (especially high-sodium foods, aka eating out) and my depression/anxiety at the beginning of the year...I've realized again that maybe I should eat more balanced, healthful meals. And try to start exercising again. Not that I'm eating too poorly this week (weekends are my bane), but I could use a little exercise. And maybe ease myself into instead of three days of hard-core exercise and then flop on my back bemoaning the world and getting old.
If you want to be health buddies (and you're not my brother--because it's just sinful that my older brother is in better shape than I am), let me know!
And you might be wondering why I'm bringing this up on my writer's blog.
1. It's my blog and I'll whine if I want to. (I won't break into song here, but I'm now humming that and I have no one to blame but myself.)
2. If poor eating triggers my depression, and my depression usually leads to me not writing...then obviously I want to not be depressed!
3. Even if poor eating doesn't trigger my depression, eating healthy isn't going to hurt and trigger my depression (most likely). I mean, it's not like I'm going to stop eating out. Just maybe not four days in a row.
4. I was having a really good time with my writing and editing and in a good mood and then ate out four days in a row and today I am verbally constipated. I realize it could be coincidence, but, again, it doesn't hurt to try.
Hopefully my post next week will be more on topic and less whiny! (And...not three days late?)
