Depression and weight loss..
Gurr. I've tried to diet and exercise in the past. I can never seem to stick with it! I definitely have an addiction to unhealthy food, complicated by the fact that I can't eat anything too "hard" because I have bad teeth. Add to that, I'm so extreme with food! As in--if I'm somewhat stressed, I binge. If I'm overly stressed and something horrible happened--I don't eat. At.all. I've gotten better in way of sweets anyways--I've cut that down. Otherwise, I'm getting nowhere--plus the budget. Our budget for food sucks..and I end up making things with a lot of carbs because I need to feed my family of 4 on roughly 60-70 dollars a week.
Moving on, the exercise. I've tried doing things in my apartment--but it's not that big of a place..at all. I have extreme social anxiety--so going outside for walks or a gym is extremely difficult for me. However I'm working on that one. I deal with depression, so a lot of times I don't have the energy at all. I'm about to tackle this head on--again--though.
Okay, so there's some of my story. Does anyone know of any exercise programs that work great in a small place? I was looking into at least getting an eliptical in my apartment (lol not like I know anything about them!), anyone know much about those? I wish I could get a treadmill in my place..seriously..I'd LOVE one. But those are too big. I did read a tip online that while watching TV--every commercial do an excercise until the show comes back on--then repeat the next commercial. That sounded interesting.
Also, does anyone have ideas on cheap, healthy meals and snacks that aren't "too hard"..like I couldn't eat carrot sticks as a snack to much on because they're too rough on my teeth.
Sorry if this was too long. Thanks in advance! I have so much to work on between mentally AND physically :P.
