The only good thing about Facebook is that once a year, people who don't think of you any other day are reminded you exist for the 2 seconds it takes them to type happy birthday.

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.

Not feeling great today. Low-level anxiety and headache. Have to get through this day, then 4-day weekend, which I plan to spend mostly sleeping and watching television.
Jeff M
2d · LEGEND

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.

Jeff M
2d · LEGEND

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.

Was dressed to go to the snowy run last night, and last minute I decided to go to the bar and relax instead. Felt a weight lift off me. Sometimes it's okay to do something unhealthy...
Jeff M
3d · LEGEND

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.

Jeff M
3d · LEGEND

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.

Jeff M

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...

Yesterday was a bad day. Didn't feel well all evening and night, and slept poorly. But not feeling too bad today. Couldn't run this morning though. Tons of work I should be doing, but not motivated.
Jeff M

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.

Very lonely weekend. Feels like mid-winter, but hopefully snow will melt mostly this week. This is a hard week for me every year. Really feeling sad and anxious.
Jeff M

Had some things bother me yesterday that really got to me. Tried hard talking myself out of it. Realize that people don't mean me ill will; they just don't care about me (or anyone) one way or the other. There's no harm in their actions, just no...

Quiet, lonely weekend. So cold both mornings, so ran on the treadmill. Ate and drank way too much (as I tend to do when by myself), and felt yucky this morning. So didn't run on mill this morning.
Jeff M
18 Nov 2019 · LEGEND

Trying to run 6 days a week. So at least I have tonight's group run (and at least it will be over freezing tonight). But have to build these miles up...running feels like all I have to feel good about sometimes.

Jeff M

I shouldn't have needed another lazy weekend. I had that last weekend. But wasn't feeling great (stomach issues and this cold that won't go away), and loneliness, and mid-winter weather made me quite lazy.

Went from fall to mid-winter. Almost a foot of heavy, wet snow yesterday and temps in the low teens (F). This is Feb weather. At least I FINALLY have heat.
Jeff M
13 Nov 2019 · LEGEND

Yesterday was quite stressful. Having to shovel for an hour, then the furnace install going on, trying to make sure the dog didn't get out or do anything, keeping an eye on everything. Furnace works, but have to have some electrical work still.

Jeff M
13 Nov 2019 · LEGEND

Frustrating that they didn't finish everything. (Humidifier isn't hooked up.) But at least I have heat. It's so nice to wake up and not see my breath! Still haven't programmed the thermostat.

Jeff M

Low score for the weather. It's just such a dramatic shift from chilly to sub-freezing cold. Supposed to run trails in this tonight? Man, I hate the cold. I know, I choose to live here. I'll get somewhat used to it. But I'm not yet, that's for sure.
