Weekly Wrap-Up March 21, 2016

Weekly Wrap-up
This past week was mediocre in all areas. Mood was okay, Weight/Fitness was okay and writing was just okay. Looking forward to a fresh start this week.


This past week wasn’t quite as good as the week before but it wasn’t bad. I struggled to force myself into the shower most days, which is a pretty good indication that I’m going through a depressive state. When I’m down, have the blues or feel a little depressed, I can function reasonably well, but if I can’t take a shower? Well, that’s full blown, chemical imbalanced depression.

Weight and Fitness

I started the week pretty well, but once Wednesday hit and I was scarfing down whatever I could get my hands on. Looking back, I can see that the overeating is pretty much aligned with the no shower days. Go figure.

My weight went up to 264.0 lbs. That’s a .4 increase. I’m still in line with my 6 lbs. a month goal. So far this week has been a good start both in eating and fitness. I’m optimistic.


My Saturday morning critique group wasn’t real thrilled with the parts of Chapter 6 from my novel that I shared this week. That was completely my fault. I knew it needed some updates and wasn’t ready for prime time, but for some reason I shared it anyway. Good feedback for future chapters, though.

Tonight I will start going to another critique group that’s just getting started. I’m going for two reasons. One is to check it out and see how it compares to the one I’m in. The second reason is to check new drafts. I figure after I make changes based on recommendations from the first group, I can share it with the second group and see if I changed them for the better. It could end up being too much and time consuming to join the second group, but figure it doesn’t hurt to give it a try

  1. It sounds like your overeating is fueled by depression. It can go either way with depression–overeating or loss of appetite. For me, my appetite increases too. But you did well anyway, weight loss wise. Good job! I’m interested in hearing how things go with 2 writing groups. Wishing you brighter days.

    1. Most definitely. Depression and anxiety send me straight to the kitchen. I always wished I was one of those people who eats less when I’m depressed.

      I’ll keep you posted regarding the two writing groups
