Headspace

So far this week has been a productive one mentally at least.  I am still yet to fully get back into dieting but I’m not going to let that get me down.  Now, this may be controversial to some people but I am glad the weather has cooled down.  I don’t want it to be cold but I could barely function in the heat last week.  Perhaps I am more suited to living in cooler climbs?
