Where is The zone?

So, I have been trying to get into the blogging zone and successfully managed to take photos of some of my food over the weekend.  Unfortunately, I only got images of the boring stuff…

Salad 3

Guess I’ve been eating a lot of salads…  What I “failed” to capture was all the chocolate and wine and thai and chinese food that has also been consumed.

Y’know.  At the risk of getting melancholy (again!), I’ve been feeling really low.  Blogging, food, and exercise used to be my passions.  For the most part I loved my Gluten-free Tries Vegan blog and the community in which it lived.  I loved healthy living.  But recently my emotions have been lurching all over the place and I’ve gone between feeling motivated to find balance in my life, and then just utter comfort eating and mopping around.  Consequently, balance in body and mind has most definitely been missing.

It’s been a really tough year.  A lot has changed, and my course is draining.  I’m burnt out.  I love reading others blogs but sometimes they just get me down.  People are either entering into amazing races (half marathons, triathalons etc), exciting phases of their lives, or having babies.  I would just like to escape babyland for once but there is no escape…  People are either blogging about pregnancy, babies, children, or many of my friends are having them.  Anyone else feel like you’re losing your social groups to babies?

Also, studying is just depressing me.  I just want to live and be, rather than being forced to learn and write, and then research, then write.  7 years in the university education system is just too much.

Sorry about this post.  I just need to reach out into the wilderness that is the internet/blogsphere and vent.  Usually I save these kind of vents for my journal.  But since I’m trying to get back into bloggong I just thought I’d put this out there.  At the moment I feel governed by negative emotions and unfulfilled desires.  I want to be somewhere and someone else today.

Yours truly, Sarah
