In my effort to work on my depression, here is my weekly installment of VERY GOOD THINGS!
- As always the love and support I get from my husband and friends, is irreplaceable.
- The family I used to nanny for, for 3 years, needs me to sit their kids for 72 straight hours, home in San Francisco. I love those kids so much, and am excited to get to spend some real-time at home, that I have never been so excited to work!
- I got new SHOES! AirMax Thea’s; I needed new shoes so bad and this was just so satisfying!
- When I am working in the city, I should be able to see an immigration judge, which *should* propel our move forward swiftly, fingers crossed.
- I have been continuing my running at least 5x a week, which has been super hard, but I also feel like it’s improving my mood.
- My husband and I had a really good talk, where I just let everything off my chest, about being here, my family, and my mental health. Which was a bit of word vomit, but so cleansing, and a relief to do.
What are you grateful for this week?
I have a need to vent, please just scroll past this if you don’t want to hear a pile of ramblings.
I am going to me try to run one mile a day, for the next 30 days. I am currently on day two. Overall, I think (well I hope) this will improve my overall mood as well as my waist line.
I’m not really concerned about my weight. Admittedly I am overweight, by a lot. But right now all I care about is getting healthier. I tried Weight Watchers for a month, and I lost like 5 pounds, and was miserable. My husband kept saying he noticed a difference (bless him), but all I noticed was my bad attitude. So instead of trying to do that bologna, I’m just gonna focus on getting healthier, physically and mentally.
PS- my husband even ran some with me, 10/10 moral support champ.
Here’s to May!
Snacks are my favorite dinner. Honestly the smaller the bite, the more I want to eat it, it’s almost compulsive. My husband basically hates anything green, but being vegans, green is good, green is your friend. Sometimes feeding him is like feeding a small child, gotta sneak in the veggies. He’s not actually like a child, to be clear, I’m only joking, but it is less of a fight for both our junk food loving butts, to find new ways to eat vegetables.
In an effort to keep my positivity, and work on my depression, I’m trying to realign myself with the good things! I’m going to try and do a weekly list of the good things, from the previous week.
- My husband and our cat babies. Despite all three of them taking all the bed always, they’re the best.
- Friends that are blindly supportive, no matter what. My ride and die crew who I love so much.
- This week I dyed my husband’s hair grey and it looks so good, I could just die. 😍
- Avocado bagels, with nooch and hymalean sea salt.
- I walked a 5k, which isn’t that impressive, but it was fun and it was beautiful.
- Discovering Macy’s takes PayPal, IN STORE. Hello new sunglasses!
- The sun is finally shining! It’s starting to warm up, so no more socks at night!
- Flonase and Allegra, hay fever bye-bye.
- A fully cleaned room! Deep cleaning sucks, but the results are so amazing. Nothing like the smell of clean sheets.

A friend of mine shared this video recipe for a vegan camembert. Vegan cheese has been one of those things, I keep meaning to try to make and never get around to. She also tried it, and raved about how incredible it was. Obviously I decided to give it a go, and I am so happy I did.
Today was a great day. We don’t get them often, but F and I had a lovely date day. Because of our current living situation, we are literally smack dab in the woods. This being the case, means going out for a meal, or doing… anything… is almost impossible. It has to be a conscious effort, to get out of the house and leave, to do something for a day. Because of this, there is no longer any room for spontaneity.
