So, how am I doing on my new goals? Well, the dieting turns out to be harder than the exercising, but I am doing both. I watch what I eat and try to eat less than I usually would, but I still eat things that are bad for me. 😦 I can’t seem to kick that habit yet, but I’m gradually working towards it. As for exercising, I started with only being able to work out for about seven minutes. 😦 BUT now I managed 22 minutes yesterday. I’m slowly progressing and I’m starting to feel great.
I applied to a couple of places, but haven’t heard anything from them yet. I probably won’t, but they seemed like cool jobs so I’m hoping. I think I might try a temp agency soon if I don’t find a job by the end of this year.
Let’s see. The writing on my novel is coming slowly this past week, but I worked out some of the kinks and now its flowing again.
I saw my best friend from diaper school again last night. I hadn’t seen her since September! It was good having a girls night out last night. We watched Tangled and then talked for a while. I’m also doing a lot with the service organization I belong to and met a new friend, but she lives all the way in the southern part of this state, so I won’t see her very often. 😦 I’ve decided to join a bipolar support group. NAMI is offering Connections here on Friday afternoons, so I might check that out. I’d also like to join a book club, but I don’t know of one around here. I’m thinking of maybe talking with my favorite book store to see if they know of any or might want to start one there. I have a vast knowledge of literature and I have teaching experience, so I think I could easily lead a book club if I wanted to, but is that too much? Am I being kinda manic in my thoughts for starting one? Without having a job right now, I don’t think so, but when I do get one it might make things complicated.
Overall, I’m doing really well lately. I have my bipolar disorder in a very stable situation right now, I think. I have cleaning and Christmas cards to do today. At least I’m keeping busy while I continue to look for a job.
How is everyone else. I’d love to hear from you and see how the holidays are affecting you. Please comment.
