A Little Bit of Something

Does it ever seem like what you do is never good enough? Lately, I've been feeling that way, of course it doesn't help that in my current condition (being pregnant), I get tired easily and want to sleep all the time.

I am trying but just don't seem to be getting anywhere, in neither my domestic endeavors or professionally.

Any suggestions to get both motivated and stay on the goal??

Being tired and wanting to sleep all the time is normal. That should pass soon and then you'll have tons of energy. (at least, I did)
As for getting motivated and staying on goal, it always helped me to make a list and then cross things off one by one. You get a sense of satisfaction when you see a list with all crossed off items, you know?

Cut yourself some slack - the real goal is to keep you and the baby healthy. Pregnancy is a huge drain physically, and of course you are tired. And it should get better late rin the pregnancy (before it gets harder again toward the end!).

The first step you need to take is:
Don't put yourself down, as "never good enough". It is not productive thinking. Every effort has a result, maybe it is not massive or as noticeable.
Eating proper high energy food might help with the stamina. More fruits (I hope that is not foreign to you)
You are going to need lots of eneregy for the little one.
Good Luck.

So happy for you! Just keep the baby and yourself healthy right now. That's what really matters.

It's taken me years of practice (and a little switching around) to be really good at my work. My domestic achievements vary, and I'm learning to live with it. I'll excel more in that area after I retire. Give yourself time, and lots of room to breathe.

Shannon - thank you! Yes, I lived by lists at MBC, I should re-introduce them into my life : )

Secret Agent - it gets harder again?! oh no!! yes, I must really focus on the baby.

Austen - thank you, you are right, I must stay positive, even if no one else pats me on the back, I must do it myself. Thank you for reminding me of that!

Joe - almost -baby due in January.

Merci - room to breathe - excellent advice!
