Stupid body

I came up with another reason I might be feeling depressed. A few weeks ago I stopped trying to exercise sufficiently and at another time I may have noticed that regulary exercising more than 30 minutes thrice weekly seems to improve my mood.

Am I the only one who notices that if I stray from caring for my body I feel rapidly punished? Too much sugar and I feel sick, too little exercise and I get depressed.

It seems almost like I have my own personal trainer encoded in my genes.

I like the last line of your post. I feel the exact same way. I haven't been able to exercise for a couple of weeks now since my back is messed up and my body is screaming at me to RUN. I'm desperate for deep proprioceptive input (there I go using that word again). I want to stomp and to soar: I want the sensation of moving quickly through space propelled by my own legs. I've been so frustrated lately because I can't.

Go play frisbee tomorrow.

I wish I had those genes! My genes seem to think that when I'm feeling blue, I should lie around and eat unhealthy food. (sigh) I do like the feeling of exercise, but it's never something I crave, it's something I have to constantly remind myself to do...

Well I guess its not quite true, when feeling down I do want to just lay in bed and sulk. However it does seem I can learn that depression is a signal indicating that I need more exercise.
