Dryathlon day 21: Blue Monday

Today is Blue Monday and is meant to be the most depressing day of the year.  According to Wikipedia this is based on the following formula:

\frac{[W + D-d] T^Q}{M N_a}

where weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na

As far as today is concerned we certainly have had depressing weather. Gone are the blue skies – it has been cold , snowy and generally miserable and I must admit to feeling a bit glum myself.  Still I am really happy that I have not failed in my main New Years resolution and I’m now  on day 21 of the Dryathlon (only 10 more days to go!).  What I do need to do now is to motivate myself and take action to  get more sponsors – which I’ll be doing over the coming days.  If you haven’t sponsored me you can donate online HERE or text DEBZ59 to 70070 to donate £2 – the price of a drink.
