Welcome to the Halloween edition of Bradley’s Weekly Wrap Up
Overall a good week. The second in a row. No mania; no depression. Unfortunately, my anxiety was worse. As always it was there, but it had a stronger hold on me than usual. I mentioned the anxiety last week, but it’s more severe this time around. Like so many times before, I can’t stop seeing only the big picture. I try to compartmentalize the things that need to be done into smaller pieces, but it seems each week that is harder to do. All I can do is keep making lists, keep prioritizing. I just need to become adept at it and that’s only going to come with practice.
Weight and Fitness
Weight on Oct 15: 258.4 lbs.
Weight on Oct 22: 258.2 lbs.
Total loss: 0.2 lbs.
Having lost 5 lbs. last week, I was concerned about gaining it back this week. That tends to be my MO. Well, miracles do happen. I over ate on a regular basis and got very little exercise. I expected the worse. Given all that, I was ecstatic when I weighed in and lost. Granted, it was less than a quarter of a pound, but who’s complaining?
This week I’m hoping for a bigger loss, but if it ends up being another 0.2 lbs, I can live with that.
Didn’t I say last week was a great week? Well, I’m saying it again. I spent a lot of time at Starbucks (my new favorite writing place) and I got a lot accomplished.
Several friends, and I, are starting a new writing group and I’m excited. We’re purposely starting small so we can work as a team and make the group what we want it to be. We’ll be meeting this week to discuss what each of us is hoping for and begin ironing out the details. I’m excited.
I believe this is the shortest Wrap-up I’ve ever written. Apparently, it’s easier to write when everything is just going to hell. Overall it was good, but the anxiety was tough this week. It still gets a passing grade. I’ll give it a B.
