Last night I uttered words to Nathan that I didn’t think even fit into my vocabulary:
I’m so glad tomorrow is Monday.
Who ever even thinks that unless Monday is your day off instead of Saturday and Sunday? Crazy people, that’s who. But I’ve been counting down to this day for months. The day when all would seem normal in the world again. The day when our big projects were done and I gained some of my sanity back. Today we’re shipping out our Urban Outfitter goods and two weeks ago we finished up our products for the Cannes Film Festival. Both of which consumed our past few months, making us wonder if we’d ever be able to keep up with the business or our personal lives again.
It’s crazy how much you can lose yourself in big projects or life events without even knowing it. I took it all on as the new normal and never once realized how different I thought, acted, or felt while we had so much on our plates. It never occurred to me that things would be so different when we were done with them. That I wouldn’t feel that overwhelmed, or that I would be able to make time for the books I’ve been wanting to read, or that we wouldn’t always feel like we’re behind on something when it came to the business.
Yet I’m only one day in and I already feel all of that stress slipping away.
I’m also only one day into the cleanse and I’m pretty stoked for it. I was so nervous about it last week that I almost talked myself out of it, justifying it by saying I was too busy. Ridiculous, right? Instead I decided to have cleanse friendly meals nearly all weekend and kind of fell in love with it to the point that I’m already planning for how my diet will change after the cleanse. The cleanse is basically a stricter version of a whole foods diet for two weeks and then easing back into certain foods that are common food allergies. It almost feels like I’m not trying. Like it’s too easy and I’m doing something wrong. Any change in my diet that feels like that is pretty much a winner in my book. Bonus points: We made fried rice over the weekend that was cleanse friendly and it is the only fried rice we have ever made that I’ve liked. SO good!
So this week I’m taking it easy on my body. Less stress, better food, and more down time. It’s long overdue so I’m excited.
How was your weekend? Any exciting plans this week?
