I Eat when I am Depressed

Lately, I have been suffering from depression.  Now, this isn’t necessarily a constant condition, but I do have my good days and my bad days.  I haven’t decided to go to the doctor yet – I am hoping that it will go away on its’ own.

But, my biggest problem is that when I am depressed, I eat, and for the most part, the eating is excessive.  So, I have been trying to find ways to stop the excessive eating so that I don’t end up gaining a lot of weight too.

I have been using an appetite suppressant that seems to be helping – I just hope that I can shake this depression soon.

Reading During Earth Hour

With Earth Hour happening in just a few minutes, I thought that I needed to find something to do during that hour that didn’t require electricity.  I knew that I would have some candlelight, but that would also limit my options.

So, I decided that I will read some books during that time and take a break.  It seems due to this information age, that I am always just sitting in front of a computer, and reading will be a nice treat.

But, I should shut this computer off – just a few more minutes until lights out.

Taking my Wife to a Yankees Game

For most of our married life, my wife and I have been fans of baseball.  Whenever we got the chance, we would always watch games on TV and it would be our date time for the week.  It helps that we are both fans of the Yankees, so at least we are always cheering for the same team.

But I thought that this year I would surprise her by taking a trip to a real game.  We have never been to one, and I thought that it would be a great way for us to get away from the kids, as well as enjoy the sport that we love.

I have ordered some New York Yankees tickets and I have booked us flights for later this year.  I am planning to give the tickets to her on our anniversary – I hope she loves the gift.

Finding Ferrari Parts for my Brother

One of the “jobs” of being an older brother is helping out your siblings.  Over the years, this has involved many different things, but for the most part, it really hasn’t been that tough.  At least it really wasn’t that hard until we grew up…

You see, my brother had always dreamed of owning expensive cars, and when he finally bought one, it was like he had achieved everything that he ever wanted.  Things were going fine for him until his Ferrari had problems and he needed help.

My brother may have had high aspirations when it came to owning a high end car, but he didn’t have a clue where to buy Ferrari parts, but that is where I had to step in.

So, I have been looking online for the parts he needs and have had some luck.  I just wish that my brotherly duties didn’t involve shopping for someone else – I don’t really care to shop that much at all.

Getting in Shape for Summer

With summer fast approaching (at least in theory), I have been thinking about getting in shape with summer.  We usually spend a lot of time at the beach, and unfortunately, winter isn’t so kind on my body, so it isn’t very toned anymore.  I want to look good for the beach, so I need to start now, before it is summer.

So, I have purchased a Kettlebell training program to help me out with this goal.  The reason that I chose this one in particular is that they promise excellent results with minimal time working out – which fits perfectly with my schedule.

I will report back later as to how it is going – I think this will be my answer to a toned body for summer.
