Photo 365: Think over

Think overGood morning!

Today’s prompt was Think over. Quite apt for me at the moment. I’m hoping to make 2015 a more reflective year and take time to think more and worry less.

One thing I’m going to try is journalling. I have a beautiful Cath Kidston note book one of the children gave me for Christmas 2013 that I’ve thought too lovely to use (but then what’s the point in having it?), this is, I think, a good use for it. I have a book on my wonderful new Kindle (a Christmas present this year) which should help prompt me if nothing comes to mind from either the photo prompt or my quiet time in the morning.

I may post some of my pages on here, either as photos or have my blog post as the journal for the day (in which case I’ll print it out and stick it in to my notebook).

I don’t know where this will lead as the year goes on but I’m looking forward to thinking things over more though 2015.


Photo 365: Good morning 2015

Good Morning 2015 Hello! And a happy new year to anyone reading this.

At the start of 2015 I’m going to have another try at a photo 365 project. I’m using the prompts from Capture your 365 at the moment, I quite like the way they’re adding in weekly themes as well. Maybe if I can’t keep up with photo 365 I’ll manage photo 52 instead.

I’ll be digging out Bob and Martha and trying to include them in some of the pictures too. I’m not sure where they are at the moment though, so that may have to wait a little bit…

I’ll try and post a general update over the next few days.

Baby steps

I’m trying to take little steps to regain some control of my life.

Step one may not seem an obvious choice, but I’m getting my haircut this afternoon. This should give me more time in a morning as it currently takes ages to dry my hair. That extra time should allow me to have breakfast every morning, something that only happens two or three times during the school week at the moment, and definitely doesn’t help how l feel. It doesn’t help my eating either, without having breakfast I’m more likely to snack and crave junk food through the whole day.

My weight is still something that really bothers me. I’ve found myself planning how not to eat several times in the last two weeks. l haven’t done that and I’m fighting with myself to keep it that way. Step two is to try and plan meals more. I’m hoping this should help my eating and leave me less likely to resort to chips/junk from the freezer in an evening.

Hopefully these first simple steps will start to help me feel better.
