Try Harder Thursday

I felt: Tired. Didn't get to bed til 11.45 last night, which is extremely late for me! I did manage a mid-morning nap after my meditation, though.

I thought: About all the things I feel nervous about at the moment. Uncertainty is such a difficult thing to manage. I feel uncertain about moving house, about the baby in my tummy, about my son's health. Some of those things will resolve or at least calm in the next week - when we finalise the deal on our new home, and when I have my 20 week anomaly scan. Still, the uncertainty never goes away completely. It's weird, because I don't normally worry about such things as much. I think there's just a lot going on at once right now.

I slept: 7 1/4 hours in 4 chunks

I worked out:  30 minutes of step with Cathe's Basic Step. This time, I didn't get so overheated doing it, but it's definitely quite tough :)

I ate:  136g pastry after lunch, then 110g biscuits and 27g chocolate after dinner - total: 273g :(

I am grateful for:  The knowledge that at least some of my uncertainties will resolve a little soon.


  1. Sorry about all the stress!

    I told a friend of mine recently that she should try to think of a 'positive disaster!' I am very guilty of catastrophic thinking, constantly projecting my worries into the future. It's a hard habit to break but I'm definitely working on it.

    Hugs and good luck with it all,

    1. Yeah, my DH took a brief course of CBT, and now always says "Stop catastrophising!" Which is rich, given how much he does the same ;) As you know, having moved house just recently, it's a big thing. So, I hope once that is finalised, the other worries will drop into the background again...

      Thanks for the hugs and good wishes! Hope things are going better with P at school...
