I'm just real impatient want to move on . I am putting myself out there on a couple of dating sites and being honest. Have had a date that went sort of well. I have also found an exercise buddy who walks with me daily and is very excited. We talk about every thing under the sun. She probably knows more about me that anyone. No romantic possibilities though. She like Nancy wants to be alone. Unlike Nancy she wants a companion to walk with and do ...

Got my walk in today would liked to have gone out for another one but it was warm out and decided not to risk it.

I am stronger than that and I know it. Thank you to all who also brought that to my attention here lately.

Good advice given and now I just need to heed it. Feeling better now that I have made the decision to move on and communicated that to Nancy. Still hoping things work out some where down the line. Am putting myself out there but it might be a bit early. Going to go slow and see what happens, Do not want to play any games with new friends minds. I know I'm worth it and can get back in there and do the right things. Sat, 27 Oct 2012 17:40:41 EST Still need that Advice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5110195 Well you will need to read last nights blog to what's up. Don't really expect any advice since no one responded last night. Not sure what to make of that. <BR> <BR> Well today feeling good. Eating right and got walk in today. Lots of driving today too. <BR> <BR> Good night all. Tue, 23 Oct 2012 16:50:23 EST Need some advice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5108755 If you have been checking out my blog’s recently you know I am going through a breakup. Well I have made a decision to put myself out there to meet other people. This is the way I think I can move on. Today I received a email from Nancy stating she needs her space and time. The question is do I wait around and see what happens or move on. Mon, 22 Oct 2012 16:52:52 EST Keep tripping up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5102851 Right now if I could just stop tripping myself up I might make some headway with this breakup. Seemingly simple comments taken out of context or not with present thinking taken in account upset people. I know ramble ramble move on Steve. <BR> <BR> Well eating is great made Yellow Rice with yellow corn and spicy sausage boy was it good topped of with some salsa. I know sounds weird huh but it was great. Got walk in today outside. Weather here in central Florida was great today. <BR> <BR> O... Wed, 17 Oct 2012 17:56:23 EST A good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5101572 Well got walk in at the mall today and have been eating right. Had a great conversation with Nancy today and think that is why my mood is better. I know that the chances of us ever getting back as a couple are very slim but I continue to hope. It was nice talking to her as her friend though. If that is all we have for the future then I need to get used to the idea. All I know is that the whole time we had with each other I enjoyed it very much. Tue, 16 Oct 2012 16:54:58 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5100250 Well not eating right for started, not going over just not in the mod still to cook a nutritious meal. Had cereal for dinner again with grapes. Well at least I go my fruit in. On the relationship front still trying to get over the breakup. Trying to remain friends and not screw that up. I keep catching myself thinking about her and times we shared. Then I have to stop that because it upsets me to much. I know people are getting tired of hearing about this but it does help me to blog about it... Mon, 15 Oct 2012 17:38:41 EST A short one http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5095521 Feeling better tonight got my mall walk in 60 min five time around. Eating great did not feel like cooking tonight so made myself a bowl of cereal with grapes mmmm good. Well good night all. Thu, 11 Oct 2012 16:43:21 EST Still not there http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5094299 As the title say's I thought I was doing better until I was disappointed today with lunch. I was hoping to get Nancy lunch since I know she finds excuses not to eat. Did not happen. I know I need to give her the space she needs. She tells me she just wants to be alone. She has never been alone in her adult life. Personally I don't understand this I was alone for over 10 years and did not like one minute of it. <BR> <BR> Well did get a small walk in today down to the lake to go fishing to ge... Wed, 10 Oct 2012 17:13:27 EST Things http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5092995 I'm wondering how I'm going to move on when all I still want to do is help Nancy. I worry about her eating right since I know the only time she ate most of the time was when I cooked for her. I know in order to give her the space she requires I need to back off. I know it's only been a few days and that it will get easier. I think it is helping to blog about my feeling. This is not something I would normally do. I'm hoing that with the help of my SP frirnds that it will help in the healing pr... Tue, 9 Oct 2012 17:26:39 EST Trying to stay strong http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5091695 First I would like thank those who responded to my last blog. Thank you. <BR> <BR> As the title implies trying to stay strong. Nancy just left with the last of her things. I will miss her. I cooked dinner for us so she would have something to eat since I know otherwise she would not have eaten anything good. <BR> <BR> I should not have been surprised at the support I got from my SP Friends but I was anyway. Good night all. Sorry not more detailed. Did get my walk in today. Mon, 8 Oct 2012 18:14:02 EST They say it gets better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5090280 Well That is what they say and I know from past experience this is true. Just hate going through the beginning of a break up. Really sucks. Well my day wasn't too bad got my walk in this morning and some groceries in the house. Got out to the swap meet to pick up the shirts but they weren't ready yet. A new day tomorrow hope all is well with you all. Sun, 7 Oct 2012 17:17:46 EST Feeling real low http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5089324 Well today was quite possible the worst day I've had in a long while. My girl friend moved out so guess I need to stop calling her my gf. then I spent all day in a Ham Radio class only to completely blow the test after 9 hours of instruction. Feeling real low tonight. <BR> <BR> I refuse to let myself go v=back to where I was 3 yrs ago. I have come a long way and have a ways to go to be where the "systems"says I need to be. I;m happy about my progress but know I can do better. Still have abo... Sat, 6 Oct 2012 20:06:49 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5080824 Well, when I think about Nancy I get sad even though she has not officially moved out yet. Right now she is in Austin with her daughter and granddaughter. Felt ok all morning and this afternoon got a little antsy. I know this will go away I just hate the idea of even having to go through this again. Sun, 30 Sep 2012 16:24:26 EST A week of changes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5070687 Well I guess it's official my GF and I are splitting up after more than 6 years. Real bummed and maybe some of you may have caught some of my post to the other walls as not being very positive. We are going to remain friends and go our separate ways. <BR> <BR> I refuse to go back to the booze and p/other things of the past. I want to keep my senses and stay positive. More later. Still not up to saying a lot more and will miss her a great deal. Sat, 22 Sep 2012 18:34:56 EST A weird night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5060017 Well yesterday we had our All Staff meeting and they were giving Flu shots out to all the employees that wanted to get one. I decided what the hell I might as well get one this year. What did I know, Ha Ha/ Well Toward the break point I stared feeling tired and decided since I'd been up since 2 am I'd call it a day and leave the meeting. Came home and stared up on the computer. This went on for a couple of hours and then I started getting gas pains and a slight headache. Decided it was time t...

About half way through it I was thinking I wanted to go farther today. All the while my mind kept saying you do enough just stop after your regular 4.5 mile walk. Not today I decided I got another 1.5 miles in and it felt great. <BR> Well hope you all have a great weekend. GF just made some Strawberry bread that tastes great. Hope to get out and do something different today not sure what yet ...
