The sun is back, which means my productivity has increased about 200%.
Today I did some sewing, made 8 rope dealies for our camping gear, and took Luna for an hour long walk (that didn’t feel challenging at all).
I also thought I would mention that I’ve lost about 15 pounds by limiting my snackage and eating much healthier. This is a huge win because after two-ish years of lugging around a lot of extra Zyprexa weight I’ve finally began losing it. (Of course, I wish I could lose it at the same rate I gained it when I was taking the Zyprexa, but that is a little unrealistic!) At this point I’m just happy to be wearing some loose jeans.
I can also report that I somehow made it through our anniversary trip over the weekend without any major mood swings interrupting things, which felt like something of a miracle. Granted I normally get a little hypomanic when going on trips, but the most I felt this weekend was excited which was quite nice. I feel very lucky and appreciative of that fact.
This monday the forecast is continuing to call for sunshine all week, so the outlook (for weather and mood) is good.
