Today I feel good, energized - although waking up at 3am isn't really a side effect I anticipated. I doubt it will last, and I may nap later today... Ted seemed pretty enthusiastic about the experience, so I think we can keep each other on track - I need a partner for those moments when I feel like leaving the house is too much effort, but if I've made a promise to meet someone then I will go so as to not let them down.
I feel like I'm finally starting to get my life back together, after about seven years of -- what? lets just call it troubles for short -- and the fitness thing is a major part of it. Why I didn't see that before now is just my baggage/issues/etc. but I am hopeful this will help both my mood and health improve.
