I finally consented to the fact that I could either continue to mope about for the remainder of the day on my sad state or actually do something about it. So I took little d to the petstore, purchased some new workout clothes that actually fit me in this moment, and bought some veggies to make a healthy-ish dinner. It shouldn't come as a shock to me that eating terrible food contributes to making me feel terrible and eating a balanced meal did wonders to lift my mood. I even voted (got out of the house before noon!), ran outside today--2 miles (a side pain forced me to walk the last mile after that) in case you are wondering, just to the library and back. It was freezing and mostly miserable at one point in time or another for little d or I, but we made it and there were a good feel good moments mixed into there.
