Pity Party Over.

It has been awhile since I last posted, and I have been in a slump.  My room is a mess. I have been consuming large amounts of Taco Bell.  I lay in bed all day on the weekends.  I am heavier than I have ever been before. I haven't been motivated at work or school.

I moved to Colorado almost 8 months ago and am not feeling very settled here which I think is a large part of the problem. I don't have any close friends except my roommate and rarely go anywhere but my apartment or work. Flat out, I am lonely. Worse than being lonely, I am letting this loneliness and self-pity consume me. I am allowing my loneliness to justify every poor decision I make.

So starting today, I am ending this pity party.  I am going to get involved in something, anything. I don't know what that something is, but I am going to find it. My fridge is stocked with healthy and delicious food, and I am going to eat that instead of Taco Bell. I used to love working out so I am going to get back in that habit, even if it is just a brisk walk every day. I need to feel my heart pumping and feel alive.

I need to make this place my new home.  I am going to focus on the positives. If you would like to follow along on Twitter, I am going to post one positive thing about my day, every day.

Have you ever struggled to make friends after a move? Do you have any suggestions for activities I should get involved in?
