In funk before the wedding and plans to get out of it

It’s been a while since I wrote my last post. I feel as though I have gotten into some type of funk lately. The truth of the matter is that I myself have caused this funk that I am in. I can’t remember the last time I worked out and my diet has moved into an area that I don’t even want to discuss.

In early November I will be flying from Portland to New Jersey to celebrate the marriage of my youngest daughter. I have been spending a lot of time, money and energy in preparing for this event, while my day job has been getting more challenging. I have left little towards eating right and working out.

The first day after I return to Oregon I vow to get myself back on track with both eating a healthy diet and a daily workout regimen.

The one thing that I have learned over the last several months is that my body at times is screaming for exercise. Not a lot, but just enough to do things like assist in processing food and increasing the oxygen to my brain. These thoughts I will keep in mind as I delve back into it.

As far as food is concerned I have practiced both a vegan and paleo lifestyle and have decided that the best diet for me would be a combination of both. Fresh, non processed meats with fresh vegetables. I will avoid the white stuff and stay on track with the colorful stuff and dark green. Sounds simple enough? You know it’s never that simple but I believe that I can figure it out.

As far as work is concerned I have always found it to be challenging no matter what field I am working in. The reason for this is that I actually give a shit about doing a good job and strive to find better ways of competing tasks. I put this stress on myself but know how to control it when it gets overwhelming. I will need to start making some adjustments.

    You’ll be fine I’m sure and you will find a way to work it all out. Sometimes just a simple walk will clear your head and make you feel better!

    Ugh! I hate those funks, Bill. They’re killers on every level, right? The good news is we’re positive, determined people who won’t give up. Keep the faith!

    Who, by the way, hasn’t posted on her blog in weeks! That’s dedication? I think not. Tonight’s the night! 🎉

    It sucks to be in a downward spiral, and so hard to turn the momentum of that around!

  4. I find the change in weather and daylight impacts at this time of year. The important thing is that you know that spark will come so just ride it out. Easier said than done I know as we are all contemplating Brexicide here!

    I enjoyed this write up. Sounds like me. Vegan…Paleo. I’ve debated both lately. I think for a diabetic that the Paleo would be the way to go. Vegan has a lot of carbs and gets tricky. I have to exercise daily or I feel blue after 4 days. We purchased a Tread Climber and I love it. I get a good book, fiction or self improvement, and read for 45 minutes to an hour. It was worth the money. I talk about it in my blogs as though it’s part of the family. Thank you for visiting my site. I paid off big debt in my 30’s and we live simply and frugally. I have lot’s of great stuff under the Categories and budget for saving money. You may enjoy. I’ll be following you. Sounds like we have a lot in common already. “)

  8. Shouldn’t you be getting nervy about THE SPEECH! That’s the usual thing to be fretting about at this stage, or are you all set?
