Working On It

I have been trying to take realistic positive steps to improve my mood and my life in general. I'm happy to report that I've kept the cigarette quota to 5-6 for the past week or so and I've been making a concerted effort to slug back more H2O. I've also hit mom's new treadmill for the past two nights and tried to jog for at least half the time I was on there. I am working at eating more fruits and veggies and trying to curb the emotional junk food binges. I've been renewing the job searching efforts as well, and taking more time to read and write. Sleep is still a bit of an issue, but I figure I'm not doing too badly in the grand scheme of things...provided I can keep chipping away at all those things until I get to where I want to be.

Oh, and this is noteworthy: in further attempts to shake the black dog that's been hounding me, I also went in search of some funnies today. I added a list of those sites I deemed worthy of revisiting to my blog. Check 'em out if you need a laugh.


  1. I think that once we let go of something there is a void created for a while until something else takes its place and your post helped me recognise that in myself. In the last few weeks I've let go of sugar and haven't filled that void so the Black Dog moved in.
    I hope your path gets brighter. I am being patient.

  2. I didn't actually put that together until you pointed it out. An illustration of 'two heads are better than one.' I hope your patience pays off soon. In the meantime, cheers on being vertical (I just read your latest post). I think he is getting bored with me and preparing to move on for a while.
