Really mixed this week. I had my good days and bad days, but they didn’t seem to have much to do with mania or depression. It had more to do with being clear minded or confused. I had a hard time grasping some basic concepts.
Obsession was another big deal. I’ve been spending the past 1 – 2 weeks writing a sermon that I conducted at church yesterday. I’m not a minister, but we are awaiting the arrival of a new minister in August, so we are having some members of the congregation fill in until then.
Weight and Fitness
Weight on July 16 – 258.0
Weight on July 23 – 256.0
Total loss = 2.0 lbs.
July has been a great month. I’ve lost 9.4 lbs. with one more weigh in to go next Saturday. Just like I said last week, I did it through good old fashioned diet and exercise. While I may have splurged here and there, most days I stuck with the Weight Watchers plan. Weight Watchers is more about portion control rather than what you can and cannot eat.
I did my 5 mile walk to the library several days. Two of those I chose to walk another 5 miles back home. Probably overkill, but the days were nice and I had the energy.
What writing? Well, I did work on the sermon, but the novel took a backseat. Actually worse than the backseat. It was in the trunk. The sermon should have taken two days’ tops to write, but my obsession over it, and my lack of concentration made it a ridiculously long ordeal.
Today, I’m back to the novel and will be meeting with my creative writers group. I am looking forward to being back on track.
Excited about the weight loss, but overall I’d rate the week just OK
