Not too much to say about my mood. Overall I’m still doing great. I had a few bouts with depression last week, but I think they were more related to the heat and being tired. You may recall that I made a commitment to walk five miles to the library each day. This allows me to get my daily exercise goal of 10,000 steps in, plus an air conditioned environment and comfortable place to write. I only went one day. A couple of the days I had doctor appointments, which got in the way, but the other days I didn’t get up early enough to beat the heat of the day. I wound up at home falling asleep from the intense heat and remained tired and grumpy. Our apartment is like an oven.
I hope to do better this week.
Weight and Fitness

Weight on July 02 – 260.8
Total gain = 0.8 lbs
Even though I gained this week, I’m thrilled. Considering the food available at Maurice’s parents last holiday weekend, and my taking advantage of every bite, I was certain I’d gained at least two pounds.
This week it will be the library for me. If I do get moving too late, I need to at least get out of the apartment before the heat gets to me. I have the option of getting a good walk in by going to Starbucks (about 2 ½ to 3 miles.) If it reaches too high to hit Starbucks, I have a good friend who lives nearby and works from home. She has an air conditioner so I won’t pass out mid-day. To wrap it all up In one simple sentence: Every day I need to get out of this furnace we call an apartment no matter what.
Still struggling writing the sermon I’ll be conducting on July 24th. I picked a subject that’s harden that I anticipated. This has gotten in the way of writing my novel, but I forced myself to make sure I get a little of that in too. My goal is to wrap up writing the sermon by Wednesday so I can get back at the novel before I get too frustrated.
It was an okay week. Not good, not bad. It just was, and I’m okay with that.
