I just have to be strong right now, not forever or for the next hour or the next week or year. Just right now. This moment. I can do that...
That's right. You can definitely do it!
Thank you for sharing!!💪💪💪
BIG HUG JEFF XXX
<3 big hugs, Jeffy
Put yourself first <3
Going to be a long day of training, though. And hopefully running hills tonight. Feeling really fat lately, and those bad evenings of food and beer don't help.
Tacos and beer are a good refuge at time, but running is much better.
Tacos and beer sound like a good kind of night. I would join that
same here. let's keep going
was at least the food/drinks good?
Dude same. Ive gained so much weight these past few months from the holidays. im going on a run in the morning, trying to get into healthy habits. good luck man
Most days, I'm used to being alone, even in a crowd. Sometimes I'm reminded of how alone I am, and it makes me quite sad.
You are never alone here, Jeff. 💚
Hope you are enjoying the easier day. And doing the treadmill is good, right?:)
Well done on still using the treadmill. I now know how difficult it can be to get on there.
Hope things go well at work - I'm finding it hard to get back into the routine and to care. Good that you're still running, fingers crossed you're not getting ill!
I am constantly amazed by how stable you are at running. You don't give yourself enough credit. Sorry to hear about the ghosting though.
Hope things feels better soon for you, Jeff. It's so easy to feel down in the winter.
Don't worry Jeff, I was in tears as soon as I woke up. A wave of gloom simply overcame me. It happens sometimes.
Glad you had a good time off, Jeff. That's awesome!
Haha yeah, those effin work passwords! I know the feeling.
Nice to see a post from you, had been wondering how your break was. Glad it was good
Hope you're feeling better, Jeff. Enjoy your time off!
I've finished my last day today Jeff. Really don't want to ever go back in the new year. Who knows what another year will bring. Hope we both have a good break where we can get our positivity back somehow.
Happy holidays, Jeff! *hug*
I'm feeling a lot of the same!
Glad you had a good time. Jeff!
It's so stressful to organize something like this and then feel like I have to be on and talk to everyone and be a 'host'. Huge sigh of relief later in evening when I could just drink my beer and eat my cookies.
But it makes me feel good too. So many folks came out and said they had fun. Nearly 3 or 4 times what we had last year. And a lot of ppl commented on FB how cool it was to see us as they drove by.
Well done Jeff
I'm happy for you Jeff 😃
That's awesome! Wish I could've seen it.
Nice to have things to do...
I'm counting down too Jeff. One down here, three to go. Can't wait to get out of there.
Have a good restful break
This year, it was especially evident. I didn't get a text or call or even FB 'happy birthday' from my real friends. I know some aren't on FB, so I forgive them. Others know, though. All I got were a bunch of FB 'friends' who never think of me again.
I bought and ate a piece of cheesecake alone. I drank alone. I went to bed early. Glad it's over. I hate being reminded of my age and where my life is... it's easier not to think about these things.
birthday are irrelevant anyway. what i got this year was a weird dinner with my partner and indeed they dumped me the day after.
i hope the cheesecake was good
Hey Jeff. I didn't know it was youw birthday my friend. My MP was messing up yesterday. I surely would have wished you life's blessings. As you are a dear friend...i always look to hear from you for advice xxx
Just going to spend the day eating and drinking and pretending I'm not alone, even though I am. No one has asked me to join them or do something, even those who know. But I don't expect it.
There's always a panda on here for you Jeff. Sending lots of hugs.
Happy birthday dear Jeff. Hope you manage to enjoy something about it, even if it's just spoiling yourself x
We need only a good fun friend. That's all. You can find one.
Happy Birthday, Jeff! I wish we could have a Panda party for you. Hope your day turned out ok. Definitely treat yourself to something nice. We love you! 💚
Happy Birthday dear Jeff. I wish you happiness. Love and hugs always
Thank you, pandas.
Im just seeing this today as my MP was messed up yesterday. I hope you made the best of your day Jeff. Im not so crazy about them either. Im always here for you my friend. East coast! XXX
Happy Birthday Jeff! 🎂🍺 (Not late just 364 days early🙂) Sorry not been on here in weeks. Hope you manage to treat yourself to something nice. xx
Saw a picture on FB of someone talking about how great their birthday was with friends, and the picture had 30-40 people at a bar having fun. Made me feel so lonely. I'll be lucky to have 1 or 2, if I set it up and ask them to go with me.
This is why I avoid FB. My 'year in review' thing is only about 3 pictures, all but the one where I changed my profile pic to something other than me being tagged in the background of other people's pics. That about sums up my year right.
I am so glad I quit FB years ago. Really helped me to not obsess over what everyone else was doing. Remember that their profile is full of everything they want people to see. There is probably even more that they don't want to put out there.
Off FB since 2011
Granted, I feel guilty this morning, but 5 miles on the treadmill this morning (coupled with a much better night's sleep last night) helped! It's going to be super cold, so may not do hills tonight either. And that's okay, I guess.
As long as I don't let myself make excuses (often) in the new year. That's when training and eating better really has to start. It's too easy to make exceptions for the holidays and carry over bad habits.
Otherwise, feeling pretty okay today. Holiday lunch at work, and ugly sweater day. I'm wearing my xmas sweater with dinosaurs on it. I tell people it's like the first christmas. When they say there were no dinosaurs at the first xmas...
I ask how do they know? They weren't there! :D
😁 nice, Jeff
It really is OK to do nothing sometimes, or do something that's not perfectly healthy or right or normal or even sane :)
😂😂😂 Love the dino joke! Unhealthy things are ok every once in awhile. Be kind to yourself, friend!
It's Christmas soon. It's normal to skip training
Really should go run with a group this evening, but just want to go to a bar for tacos and relaxation. Feeling anxiety and stress... And lonely. Holidays always make me feel alone.
I've read somewhere recently that this whole holiday family thing is very wrong, because there are many, many people who are single or not particularly close to their relatives, and the unrealistic expectations just make them all miserable.
I'm trying to let go of those this year.
i'm just gonna pretend the holidays are not happening this years.
i got earplugs for new year's eve. :)
Holidays... id rather sit cosy under a blanket with a hot coco watching a movie 😄
