Yes, I exercised

I did however completely forget to mention it in my last post. So anyway, today was a 50 minute run, 60 minute walk, weights (I was able to up the number of reps finally) and abs. I suppose overall it was pretty strenuous because when I was five minutes late in making lunch my body began to complain that it was absolutely starving. Now, two glasses of water and a giant salad later it is much happier and calmer. I mean, for the record, I literally made lunch at 12:05 pm rather than 12:00 pm and my body was extremely upset with me. Five minutes total difference, I guess my body is as much a creature of habit as the rest of me but that is a little bit ridiculous. I am currently weighing in at 166.4 as of this morning which is nice and I have resolved to try and not be whiny about what I weigh anymore. Really, it doesn't bother me than much, I am much more focused on how I feel than on what I weigh. Besides, I figure it is going to take me a little over a year to lose all the weight and given it took me 26 years to put it all on, that isn't really very much time at all. So, no more whining from me, although no doubt I will start whining again at some point so possibly you should just ignore my protestations about being good on this point. Still, I am going to really try and be more grateful for my success from now on because after all patience and gratitude are what have gotten me this far (far more than whining and instant gratification).

Everyone has days when they are down, worn out, canine separation anxiety and just not feeling all that happy.

That's OK, you need to have days like this, otherwise how would you know when you are happy. You need to have something to contrast your happiness with. What is black without white?

Even though you know that sadness (canine separation anxiety) is a part of life, let's try to make it a small part of life.

With that said, here are a few tips to help you feel better when you are feeling down in the dumps. They are easy to do, easy to practice every day and they work!

1. Stand up straight, sit up straight. When your body is in alignment your energy can flow and when your energy is flowing freely, you can flow.

2. Smile! Yes, just smile. Easy to do and effective.

3. Repeat positive affirmations. Things like "I feel good", "Positive energy flows through my body", "I see the good in all".

4. Listen to some music that you like. It doesn't have to be anything specific, just something you enjoy. Certain types of music work better than others, but experiment and see what works for you. Studies have shown that Classical music and new age music work best.

5. Take some time out for yourself, relax and read a book, do something for yourself.

6. Meditate. Meditation is an excellent habit to develop. It will serve you in all that you do. If you are one who has a hard time sitting still, then try some special meditation CDs that coax your brain into the meditative state. Just search for "Meditation music" on Google or Yahoo and explore.

Our outside work is simply a reflection of our inside world. Remember there is no reality just your perception of it. Use this truth to your advantage. Whenever you are sad, realize that it is all in your mind and you do have the power to change your perception.

These tips will lift you up when you are down, but don't just use them when you are sad or canine separation anxiety . Try and practice them everyday, make them a habit. You will be surprised at how these simple exercises will keep the rainy days away.

On a final note, if you are in a deep depression that you can't seem to shake, please go see a doctor. This is your life and don't take any chances. canine separation anxiety
