I woke up feeling a little better today. I tried very hard to be a good guest and act like I was having a good time, but there were times when it was difficult. They also took me out for an extended bike ride. I was surprised I was able to ride for so long, but I guess it’s because the land is so flat here. I’d be huffing and puffing after less than a minute at home because I live on a large hill!
I also started reading a book recommended by a friend of mine called “Pain Free”. It has “e-cises” where you do these stretches and it helps your pain. The idea is that everything in your body is connected, so the fact that my right foot turns out affects my knee which affects my hip which affects my back. My right knee and hip do have issues, so maybe it’s correct. I’ll let you all know how it turns out.
One odd reaction from announcing my departure from the singles group was a plethora of guys sending me private messages on facebook wanting to chat with me. I think most of them were just curious what happened. Once I sated their curiosity, they disappeared. There were a few who held on for longer until they really understood the fact that I really couldn’t give my heart out currently. I needed some time to recuperate from this recent disappointment. I honestly felt like giving up on my search, but that would probably only last so long. My big camping trip is coming up, so I’m at least likely to hook up with someone there. I wonder if I’m just destined to be alone.
Relationships: I spent time with my dad and step-mom
Meditation: I meditated today.
Sleep: I slept 8 hours last night.
Exercise: I rode a bike for 10 miles! I also did those e-cises from the book previously mentioned.
Diet: I followed my diet very well today. I did get the feeling that I couldn’t get full, but that’s probably because of all of the energy I expended biking for so long.
De-cluttering and cleaning: n/a, I’m still not home.
Hygiene: I showered today.
Mood and temperament: My mood shifted a lot, but I wasn’t depressed. Perhaps it could be called neutral. My temperament was also good.
