Fix it!

 I thought about the little pity party I expressed yesterday, and I thought about Saavic's helpful and concerned comment. I thought some more about my whiny reply... in which I stated that I know better. I do know better. I have concocted a plan. 

Every morning I plan to drink some water, walk a mile, take some time to ground before I fall into the kiddie pool for a few minutes, (that should be bracing) and then work out with the weight equipment, for another twenty minutes, and then cold shower with the garden hose before my work day. That should only take about an hour, and I'd feel tons better.

I can still get in about 8 hours work, before time for my sunset walk... in which I will repeat the process. I think this will solve my problems, and after sunset I can get another 5 hours work and money making research, and even a bit of recreational writing and me time, before going to bed. 
I think that will solve most of my physical and spiritual problems, and leave me in a better state of mind to make money writing. Who knows, maybe I'll type faster because I'd feel more energized? Anyway that's the plan. I plan to start Wednesday and Thursday, because I have an important errand tomorrow morning.
Thanks Saavic! I think I just needed someone else to tell me how dumb it is to put my health on the back burner.

Sounds like a good plan - take care of yourself first. A little 'me' [you] time is always a good idea, and at least you will have taken control of some things in your life again.

In the mid-90s when my DH and I were going through some very rough times financially, we took up walking, just 'round our neighbourhood every evening. I'm sire it is the one thing that saved our sanity!

BTW, have a little care about what you eat too once you have the energy to deal with it; junk food (poor nutrition)+ depression (even if it is situational) = *more* depression.

Good luck!
Thanks, I agree. I am currently not eating that much junk 'food' but junk drinks YES! I live on cola, eat very little, other than what my husband hands me and says, here eat this. He does this about once or twice a day, and it's usually not that unhealthy, at least by our Southern fried standards. LOL It isn't Vegan or anything, but it's usually some sort of meal. When I am focused on working, I tend to forget about food, and other physical needs. I've always been that way and have been self employed and working freelance most of my life. I was really kind of skinny before I met my husband, because no one reminded me to eat.
Heh, the first year I went back to University for my Physics degree, after 15 years away from academia, I would have starved if my DH hadn't made dinner and put a plate in front of me at my desk.
