Winter Time Blues

We actually got a couple inches of snow yesterday.....which I am glad my children took full advantage of. I let them play outside until bedtime, being in the dark didnt seem to bother them. Nnow the rain come and turn it into slush. I think I need to start taking my iron supplement again (I usually only need it when I am pregant). I have really been lathargic the past couple of months. I am not sure if it is because I am lazy, not getting enough sleep at night (baby is still getting up during the night, I think he is teething), to many carbs or I need more iron. Maybe it is just the January blues. I have been taking my vitamins and while I can see the difference when I take those and when I dont....I still feel unmotivated. Perhaps this is just something God is trying to get me to feelings....doing things whether I feel like it or not. I just seem unmotivated to do more than the basics. Well "Mind over matter will make the Pooh unfatter" is probably the best advice I have gotten from Winnie the Pooh and I need to take it. Some prayer, attitude adjustments and sleep will probably help to as well as walking away more of those pounds.

There is just seasons aren't there?
I find we can feel great for awhile, highly motivated,and very productive. Then we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of a drought. Its like we are thirsting for something to make us feel alive again. Our energy isn't where it should be, our attitude is more negative, we feel sad but there doesn't seem to be a reason too.
I find when I am in a pit like that, changing something abruptly helps. Like getting excited about a new routine of some sort, starting a project, changing up my exercise seems to help rejuvenate me. Even a new mothering book helps as well... after the initial guilt of everything I'm doing wrong wears off! :)
Maybe the purpose is to remind us we are never "okay" for long on our own, having to lean on our Heavenly father again makes us realize how utterly incomplete we are without Him.
I will pray for you and you pray for me, kay?!

The passionate housewife said it best, I'd like to add a thought, my friend is pregnant and is suffering from low blood sugar, (hypoglycemia) she felt just the same way (lathargic ect). The midwife did a blood sugar test and it was extremely high...She eats a balanced diet and a protein every two hours. It might be something to check into? I hope to see you blogging more soon! I LOVE THE CHRISTMAS Pics of the grublet.
