I had a wonderful week again. I could be wrong, but I think it’s been two months now that I’ve had no manic or depressive incidents. I had an appointment with my pdoc on Friday and he was excited that I’ve been doing so well. However, when I told him that there was a voice in the back of my head that is telling me to get a job, he busted out laughing which made me laugh too.
After our laugh he did ask me seriously what I thought I would do. I told him I’d go to Vocational Rehab and take one of their tests to determine what jobs are a good fit and go from there. I also told him that in the past they were more than happy to send me to a school to train to be a web designer. I already am self-taught and have a pretty good hold on HTML coding, etc. We agreed it was something to keep in mind and will revisit sometime down the road. Not yet, though. I’ll be interested to see what my therapist says. I have an appointment with him this week.
Weight and Fitness
Weight on July 23 – 256.0
Weight on July 30 – 255.6
Total loss = 0.4 lbs.
Not a big drop in weight this week, but it’s still a drop. I’ve lost 9.8 lbs. total for July and 6.0 lbs. is my monthly goal, so I am ecstatic.
Walking the 5 miles to the library each day to write has helped a lot, plus on 2 days I walked home with Maurice, which gave put me over 10 miles each of those 2 days.
I attend Weight Watchers, and love it, but I also get wonderful encouragement from my friend Dyane, whose excellent blog is “Birth of a New Brain“. Dyane and I support each other through the Lose It! Website. Working with Dyane has been extremely positive in helping me reach my weight loss goals. If you’d like to join us, you can follow the link over to Dyane’s blog and leave a message in one of her comment sections, or you can also sign up for free at www.loseit.com and search for the “Wondrous Writers” group. We’d love to have more join us.
I’m glad my sermon is over and done with. I had a wonderful time writing it, despite it taking way too long to write. I was very obsessed about it and it should have been done in a couple of days rather than several weeks. If you haven’t checked it out, you can do so here.
This week I did get back to writing and found it a very difficult bicycle to get back up on. I decided to give up writing new stuff and stuck with doing some editing. That helped me get back in the groove and back at it again. Not as much written as I’d like, but I’m heading in the right direction.
Mood – good. Weight – good. Writing – good. All together it was more than good. It really was a fantastic week; I hope they keep coming.
