“In the past 30 days, have you stopped performing any activities that you enjoy?” It was a question posed to me by my dietician. I knew what she was trying to ask but I didn’t see the connection between depression and diet. I was even skeptical about seeing a dietician but my doctor recommended I see her because my blood sugar was beginning to creep up.
The dietician explained that there is a relationship between diabetes and depression. But no one is certain if one causes the other. She then asked if I had trouble sleeping. I told her I did. Then she wanted to know if I snore. I replied I do. She then spent some time going over how blood sugar levels can be affected by the lack of sleep.
She gave me a lot of tips and information about diet and stress She recommended that I add resistance training to my regime of walking. I did a bunch of exercises with some weights the other day. I did squats and lunges to work my legs. They are so sore right now. Even my birthing muscles are hurting.
Aside from inflicting pain on myself, I’ve been spending time rewriting my resume and LinkedIn profile. I’m also working with a job counseling firm too.
I hope everyone is doing well.
