Hmm, what do you call it when you keep skipping a day?


I felt: A bit abandoned - I was supposed to meet up with a friend, who called it off the night before because her son got in trouble at school. Still, had a good time with my son, who is now on holiday for 10 days.

I slept: 8 1/4 hours in 4 chunks, I think.

I worked out:  Started off with Suzanne Bowen's Prenatal Barre Workout, but gave up after 5 minutes as it was repetitive and my legs hurt. Decided to go for something far more mellow: gentle movement with Jessica Smith's Power Walk, with added light weights. Total 47minutes

I ate:  45g biscuits after lunch, then 67g of biscuits and 97g of a gorgeous chocolate brownie after dinner - total 209g - ok-ish.

I am grateful for:  My son's increased autonomy.


I felt: Good. Meditated, napped, saw my new baby healthy and well at the 20 week anomaly scan.

I slept: 7 3/4 in 4 chunks, including a quick nap.

I worked out:  49 minutes of Step with Gin Miller's Step Classics - I had to skip a little bit as I didn't have time for the full workout (64 minutes). It was pretty fun, with basic choreography. Still, I can imagine getting bored quite quickly with it, as it's one of those "keep adding on bits and taking it from the top" workouts.

I ate:  48g brownie after lunch, 139g chocolate and 38g biscuits after dinner. Total - 225g, but it felt like more as chocolate is more intense than biscuits :(

I am grateful for:  The wonders of modern scan technology.


  1. Oh I am glad to hear your scan went well! That is always really comforting. On a side note, that picture of Gin Miller is really funny. What is she holding? An apple on a stick?


    1. She is pretty goofy, so it could well be :D And thanks, it was good to see the baby wriggling around with all its fingers and toes :)

  2. Congrats on the good scan. When you keep skipping a day it's called doing better than updating only once a week. ;)
