I am well overdue an update on how Smaller is going.
To be frank, it's going crap at the moment. I am not making the time to exercise, I am stressed out about natural disasters (as are most people I know), I am eating too much chocolate and I am not finding it easy to focus on the good in each day.
I've been doing quite well with the exercising but this week has been really bad, I haven't got the motivation. At least my eating is mostly good. I haven't given up and bought the chocolate mud pie, I have been craving since the adrenalin/shock wore off after Tuesday. Hmmm, is it shock/adrenaline if you're not actually involved in a disaster? I'll have to google it. Maybe there is a syndrome for people who are affected by bad news... And as I am an emotional eater... this week has been a hard slog!
I must unsubscribe to my news feed for the next week I think... I get very emotional when I read stories about people in Christchurch. I suppose it's a feeling of relief coupled with "OMFG what if that happens here!!!!" It's making it hard to relax as I am feeling like I need to be doing something. Sadly my handcraft skills are sorely lacking otherwise I would be able to do something. So for now I am sat trying to work out emergency plans in my head. This leads to more stress and less sleep. Can you see the cycle??
The only plus sides I can see is that we are finally talking about emergency plans and my jeans are too big.
Well, I hope you are well and have seen the new button on the top right of my page. I will add more as I come across them and you can, if you have the spare cash or skills, support Christchurch.
Go hug your family and tell them you love them!
We are woefully unprepared in our home. Forever trying to stock up on essentials and get 'the kit' together. There's book shelves that should be anchored to walls etc. I just have a problem dedicating time to do what I ought to do! The beach was far more appealing today - I know that sounds absolutely diabolical in the light of recent events. And yes, chocolate consumption has increased here too x Hugs to you xReplyDelete
