Happy Birthday Camlo, hope Mr Camlo woke up and whisked you off out for an afternoon of shopping. I think you said you were heading to the spa too, sounds lovely.
Karen, up to about day 27 of my plank and ab challenge. Is up to 4 minutes now for the planks but I can't do 4, it seemed to jump ridiculously quickly after building up slowly at the start it then jumped 3 - 3.5 - 4 minutes really quickly. Last night I did 1.25, rested, 1.25, rested then finished with 1.5. Mr TT did ask if that was allowed but I'm sure someone over on FB said it was.
Stressed to the max with everything we have going on at the moment. My elbows have both broken out in a lovely scaley, blistery rash. Not pretty. We have just 1 week until we go away so I'm hanging on to that thought. The hotel is all inclusive and there are kids' activities too so I'm hoping to get a few hours each day to myself. At least now that my stress is showing itself externally, Mr TT can see for himself how this is all affecting me as I tend to internalize my problems.
((CM)). Have you ever noticed a seasonality to your depression. Seems that you and Camlo both feeling particularly bad right now is coincidental with clock change and darker nights. Have you ever tried light therapy? Somewhere in UK I have a SAD light which I bought for Mr TT that he never used. If I can find it I'd be happy to pass it on if you are interested.
((Camlo)), I guess the first step to chasing away the black clouds is to acknowledge they are there and recognize that your irrational behavior is due to them. Hope you manage to pick up soon and definitely in time for your weekend away. There will be plenty more club runs but you're only 40 once (but you know that). Do you know where he is taking you or is it a surprise?
Only 2 weeks until our holiday, I have to keep reminding both of us as this is the first holiday we have booked in advance since 1999 and it is creeping up fast. We are still really busy at work and I don't want to end up panicking at the last minute. We do have thanksgiving here though the 2 days before we go away so will be home from work for those.
Lunch boxes on FB look lovely. Thankfully the boys get food provided at nursery, they would never get anything near as exciting as that if I had to make sandwiches.
