Welp. It’s March and I’m finally starting to get my act together in 2013. Better late than never though, right?
Since the beginning of the New Year there has been literally non-stop stuff happening in my life and around me. I’ve got loads of posts in my queue but have had zero time to post them. So, if all of a sudden there is a mass update in your Google Reader, don’t be surprised. I seriously have so much to share about what I’ve been doing.
Firstly, I’ve been seriously geeking out over health stuff. I’ve begun a green smoothie challenge, did a 3-day juice cleanse (to be blogged), and been experimenting with going vegan. It’s all been a pretty seamless transition that I can’t wait to share. I also re-started (for the millionth time) Jillian Michaels’ ‘Ripped in 30′. You can only imagine how sore I am this morning.
I also got my hands on an Erin Condren planner! Finally! It arrived yesterday, and I’ve already spent over an hour putting in events, blog post ideas, and workout schedules. I’m so in love with how it came out. I totally couldn’t resist the page of stickers. Yes, that’s Ryan Gosling.
I’ve got to run off to work now. (My new job totally rules) But, expect to see me posting a whole lot more in 2013. I know I always say that, but this time I mean it! Seriously!
So, it’s Tuesday night, and I’m feeling a little up to doing some rambling on the ol’ blog. I’ve actually got a few things to blog about, but I feel like they deserve their own posts. So, for now, I’ll just free write about some other stuff.
This morning I stopped by a new local juice bar + raw kitchen that opened near my house called Myapapaya. (I’m going to give them a separate blog post soon) I picked up two juices to try before venturing into cleansing. The fruit heavy one was oh so delicious, however the green one was a little harder to get used to. But, after a good amount of swigs, I think I’ve warmed up to the oh so healthy taste. Shame on my tastebuds for being so used to soda! So, I’ve decided that I want to do a 3-day juice cleanse. I’m also considering (depending on how it goes) taking up a once a week juice cleanse habit. It’s about $50 a day at Myapapaya, which isn’t too bad. I know I could purchase a juicer but I rather try something out for a few weeks rather than dive headfirst into it in the beginning. I’ve found that it’s easier for me to do it a little bit at a time and that way I have a better chance of achieving my goals. I’m pretty excited about this cleanse. My body really needs it. I especially feel like I’ve let myself go and it’s really upsetting.
I really want to create a meditation space within my apartment. But, living in a studio apartment makes it a bit difficult. My goal for this week is to figure out where I can cut some space to make some room for my own little space to clear my mind and energy. I’m thinking about checking out this book, Making Space: Creating a Home Meditation Practice. I love this post on Design Sponge, although their picks are a bit pricey. I think I’m going to snag their idea with more affordable options.
I’ve been on Pinterest for the last hour or so drooling and swooning over the meditation spaces of others. So envious. My ultimate dream would be to have a little fort filled with pillows and cushions and magical things. Maybe it’s not too far fetched? Fingers crossed.
On a completely random note, I need a serious blog layout overhaul. I just keep going back and forth between super simple and clean or fun and more reflective of my personality. Sigh. Serious blogger gurl problems.
Time for bed!
