I am unpacked and settled in the new temporary apartment, about 20 minutes away from where I was previously living. I'm feeling a little bit down about it. Our new location puts me further away from the water. There's not much to walk to from here. I went to check out the new apartment complex's onsite gym, but two of the three treadmills were broken, which could pose a challenge for both my husband and I to continue our Star Wars Half training at the same time. There is a branch of my Globo Gym about 15 minutes from here, but driving anywhere is pretty impossible once rush hour hits. I'm hoping to give it a shot tomorrow morning before work - maybe it's early enough that we won't have any problems getting there.

I have to remind myself this is only for a month or so while we're waiting for our house to be ready. And there's a nice pool and hot tub here, at least, but the temperature here has dropped significantly - you'd think it was fall or something.

My depression might stem from the chronic stress experienced everyday over the last seven days between moving and a tumultuous workweek. I devoted my entire weekend to moving out of and cleaning up our old apartment. Then I gave up my Sunday afternoon to work - playing catch-up from taking a half-day off Friday to move, plus trying to get ahead of a few things to minimize the impact of this upcoming week (could be that another equally stressful week is looming).

Overall, not much to look forward to, except the hour I spent at spin class this morning. Doing something that's routine in an otherwise chaotic week feels good - even if that something happens to be an exhausting hour on the bike. I am looking forward to one thing this week though - tomorrow is my monthly massage ritual! Hoping that can help pull me out of  my current blues. Just gotta keep calm and move along.

153 days left.
