Another week has passed, and it’s been good. My birthday is on the 16th. It’s got me thinking about how I want to approach the following week.
The week was bizarre overall. Although not a bad week per se. It got strange because on Tuesday a man jumped to his death just outside our office. It was crazy, and it hurt because I knew there must have been some deep pain.
I couldn’t help but think just how important it is for us to have hope. We hope in Jesus Christ, my Lord, and Savior.
I have felt hopeless before, and I never want to feel that again.
It’s been another rough week with lifestyle changes.
I have gotten too comfortable in some ways this week.
I still weigh around 286 lbs.
Weight loss: 4 lb increase.
I have kept practicing daily prayer, journaling, and meditation.
The week was somewhat challenging trying to get back on track, but those practices did help. I spent more time journaling after the events of this week.
The Apple Reminders to-do list strategy was able to keep me focused for another week.
I have been able to maintain the list of critical tasks. Also, I began including relational tasks on the list. I want to make priorities clear.
I started Awakening the Giant Within by Tony Robbins. It’s a great read. Some ideas seemed complicated for me to grasp related to pleasure and pain. Mostly, the concept of applying the tools.
