I suck at this

Thursday, September 09, 2010

I really suck when it comes to blogging. Usually my mind is never clear enough to have anything important enough to say.

Last week I got down to 230 but then my body decided it wanted 5 lbs back just over the weekend. Multiple joints ache and I'm feeling really tired. This is a step up though from how I was before moving to VT back in June. I used to hurt A LOT worse, have trouble sleeping, and nap several hours during the day. Now, I rarely have pain that gets overwhelming, sleep 6-7 hours straight at night, and very rarely feel the need for a nap during the day. However, I still don't drink very much water nor do I get the exercise I should(much because of the joints).

I do cook most meals at home and try to make sure that everyone is eating healthy. We've cut almost all meat from our diets and I've found ways to get my boys enjoying beans, veggies, etc.

I'm a very shy person but have this strong need to meet people and finally develop some friendships. Only problem is I don't even know where to start. Now that I'm in a smaller town I've found that being the new person makes it very difficult. I don't know anyone, don't know where to go to meet anyone, don't have any link to any person or any history. Of course, even if I had never moved away from my childhood home I still wouldn't have had the courage to actually meet anyone. It really sucks. It's time to find some freakin interests and at least have one decent friend.

    It's good that you blogged, and I think you'll feel better about blogging with time and practice. I've been blogging (writing online journals) for at least 8 years now. It can be hard at times to find words, but I learned that it doesn't have to be perfect. Blogging is mostly for the blogger's benefit...comments are great, but it's also good to have a 'record' of what you were thinking on a certain day.

    Congrats on your weight-loss. If you got to 230 once, you can do it again. :) And it's great that your joints don't ache as much, and hopefully they'll still be OK come winter time.

    And congrats on cutting back on the meat. Are you planning to be a vegetarian or a "flexitarian" (someone who occasionally eats meat)? I myself am aiming to be a "flexitarian".

    I'm shy too, but I find small towns to be pretty friendly...or at least most people I've seen in town have smiled and said hi. Some will even strike up a conversation with you, even if they're a total stranger. It's pretty neat and I think it could be a step towards having friends.

    Anyway, I hope you have a good day. emoticon

    emoticon I totally know the feeling. I have tried meeting people through volunteering, church, book clubs, and just baking and taking things to the neighbors to meet them. I have found a couple friends this way, but none of us hang out regularly. It has helped a bit. You can always try to create some play groups or something similar with kids and meet some paretns of kids their age that way too.
