Slimming Sunday is a week early this month due to my participation in the A to Z April Challenge. I hope you are enjoying my drawings. I think I am finding my creative feet again which is good for my well-being. I have realised that having a creative outlet in my life is important so I need to make room for it. Below are all my drawings so far…
So, far not a lot of weight has been lost. Though my clothes still feel as though they are getting looser, which is weird! Maybe they are stretching?
I have been for yet more blood tests but they have finished for now. I need to go back to the Doctors at some point for the results. A prescription came through the post the other day for Vitamin D. Mine apparently is low again.
Then as if to just put the finishing touch on a variety of problems this month – my crown has come off my tooth and I could not get a dentist appointment. I now have a hole in my tooth.
Doing this post I have realised I need to call Slimming Sunday something else because I’m not just focusing on my weight loss any more.

During May I am going to focus on – ROUTINE. I need to get into a routine with exercising, healthy lunches for work (I really need to get into th s), doing creative work, etc…
For the past six months or so I have suffered from a sever lack of motivation. Besides feeling unwell I think I have been depressed. In fact I know I have been depressed. I have been trying to ignore it and just carry on with things but everything has a breaking point. I hit this a couple of weeks ago. The problem is I did not realise. It has only been in reflection that I now realise what happened.
At this point I want to just add I am not desperately unhappy with my life. My life is good there are just a few aspects that I need to get rid of and currently I do not know how to do this. This is why I need to get into a routine because then maybe the bad aspects will disappear. I don’t want to say what those things are that need changing because I don’t want to ignite something I am unable to control.
In the past I have suffered from sever depression a couple of times. Reflecting on those times is hard but finding the triggers for those incidents is easy. This time it has been more subtle and has crept up on me slowly. At the moment just getting out of bed in the morning is a huge challenge. If I could find a way to live my life without ever leaving the house I would be very happy. Being with people or near people is extremely draining for me and I’m finding it very difficult to cope. This is why I need to set up a routine. Mental Health problems are not always obvious. Those who suffer find it difficult to talk about it and if they are anything like me it is not an easy thing to explain.
Anyway I don’t want this post to be gloomy that is not my intention. Next months post will hopefully be more positive. You never know how I’m feeling may be due to the fact that various vitamins and minerals in my body are currently off kilter. Once these are sorted I may feel a lot better. The quote below sums up how I’m going to do things from now on.
Things to do…
Regular Exercise – 3 times a week
Healthy Lunches for Work
Do Something Creative at least twice a week
Find my Motivation
