When you get the blues

Weight loss and self esteem fly out the window.  I haven't felt well in a couple of weeks.  I don't have the cash so I can't afford my supplements that I had been taking to kick start my aging body's producton of hormones and am now on a downward spiral with the hormones or lack of hormones playing havoc with my body.  Same for all the fresh fruits and veggies.  Out of season and unbelievably EXPENSIVE! 

My back hurts.  Actually my entire body hurts, muscles and all.  I'm tired, run down and just want to sleep all the time.  I'm embarrassed to say I've gained back ten punds. :( and my period is all out of whack.  Fortunately not heavy just picking and chosing when it wants to 'arrive' and disappear leaving me in a funk mostly from hormonal fluctuations, I think.

So here I am.  It's getting cold outside and that has taken a bite out of my get outside and move mantra though I have a new puppy who borders on ADHD, heavy emphasis on the "H" part.  He forces me to have to go outside with him and do a few laps around the house.  He's a 8 week old,  huge 22 pound Great Pyrenees mix.

I did pick up a new DVD.  Promise not to laugh?

Carmen Electra's Aerobic Striptease.  DVD 1.  It's a very easy workout.  So much so that I'm almost bored with it and ready for the more challenging of the other FIVE dvd's that accompany it.  Though the 3rd routine is a bit of a challenge since I don't really ahve the agility to get ont he floor and back up quite the way she and her co-hosts do...but then they've been at it for a while and I'm a newb' lol!

I enjoy the DVD.  My son said 'mom you look ridiculous', so I made him leave the room.  My husband isn't the least bit curious about the new video.  It isn't a bad video or workout routine.  They don't show anything or do anything that the title implies.  It's a lightweight aerobic routine with some sultry moves tossed in.  Now the others. I've not watched, mostly because I can only afford one at a time.

When I feel like working out it's Suzanne Deason's STability Ball for beginners, Belly Dance for Fat Burning,and Aerobic Striptease,pretty much in that order..  I'll toss in some weights for good measure sometimes.  I just don't have the heart for it lately.
