Fighting the good fight

Depression has come back. It sucks. It's not going to win. That's all I've got to say about that.

Sexy Songs
Have you heard the song "Close the Door" by Teddy Pendergrass? If not, you should. I heard it at Chik-Fil-A today (of all places) and had to get it from iTunes. It's one of the best sexy songs I know of. It's like mellow sophisticated sexy. Some other wonderful sexy songs are "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails (completely raunchy), "Feelin' Love" by Paula Cole (slightly less raunchy, mainly because it's hard to understand the lyrics) and "You Can Leave Your Hat On" by Joe Cocker (pure fun!).

Hamstring update
I've done virtually nothing all week. Well, I did an upper body workout last night and 25 minutes on the ARC trainer at a really low incline and resistance. I'll be back at the gym in the morning for another upper body workout. You can't even know how much I want to run or do a lower body weight workout. If anyone is dreading their workout as they're reading this, please know that I'd trade places with you in a heartbeat.

Leslie, so sorry to hear of your depression. Not just a funk from not being able to run, huh? Must be rough. Do meds help?

Hadn't heard the Paula Cole song ... I downloaded it and have to check out more of her stuff. A few more from my playlist:

DMB - Crush, 41, Say Goodbye
Norah Jones - Turn Me On
Jimmy Paige - Since I've Been Loving You
White Stripes - Ball and Biscuit
Maroon 5 - Secret
Damien Rice - Volcano
Chili Peppers - Suck My Kiss
Jem - Come On Closer
Lenny Kravitz - Come On and Love Me
Zeppelin, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Barry White. Alright, enough for now ...

Those songs gotta help. I hope you kick the depression soon and I am sure once you are healed it will add to the battle.

I don't know if this is clinical depression so I don't want to make light of it, just wish you the best and hope you are back to your fun self soon.
