I did start taking ornaments and stockings down today. ( :
Is it seriously the twelfth already?
I try and keep up, and take it all in, and appreciate and enjoy every minute. But somehow time always leaves me behind.
Iv'e de-cluttered (too busy to take Christmas down yet)... forced to after not being able to find a really important document. I emptied every drawer, cabinet, file folder. Only to find what a mess I was hiding.
It was time for change.
So, I have slowly been cleaning my life.
Inside and Out.
All the papers, cabinets, closets, toys...clothes.
My body needed it too. No caffeine, dairy, gluten, sugar.... a whole lot of veggies is pretty much what I have been consuming.
And yoga. It's been kicking my butt and I feel really good.
And less media time.
The diet has been the hardest. I started a journal, Iv'e been tracking how I feel before, during and after I eat and pretty much my mood during the day.
I have found myself cheating and reaching for things I shouldn't during times of stress, when I am tired or when I'm upset. Writing it down has let it come to light and I am slowly finding out how important it is to feel positive and calm.
*If your interested... I am following Whole Living's 28 day detox plan. It's challenging, yet I feel really really good today.
