Something happened last Saturday, I was finally able to breathe. My 2 big projects were finally finished. VBS was last week, Monday through Friday, and I also finished the proofbook for my sisters wedding on Saturday.
It’s amazing what hitting send on the proofbook order did. It was almost an instant sigh. Like I could actually think clearly and didn’t feel rushed. And while I loved planning and running our VBS program, and I love taking photographs, I am really glad I have my days to myself now! And I can finally start writing on my blogs again.
Because I have missed you all.
One thing that has happened these last few busy weeks is the deterioration of my health. Now that I have eaten a whole foods/nourishing diet, I’m constantly amazed at what processed foods do to me! I’m so very, very tired, my excema is trying to make a comeback, my joints actually hurt, and I’m craving sugar like there is no tomorrow!
So for me, this is “detox processed foods week”. No refined sugar, just honey and maple syrup to sweeten (with the exeption of water kefir no more than once per day). No more than one serving per day of breads and limited to only spelt. Double my vegatable intake, and limit fruits. No eating after 8pm unless it’s a smoothie. And at least 8 glasses of water per day. While I’d love to do more, I do have to make sure that I don’t actually detox, at least not to quickly. Seeing as how I’m breastfeeding right now, I have to be careful to not pass on toxins to my baby.
And today is “clean the house, it’s a disgusting mess” day. Being gone (both mentally and physically) the last few weeks has made me a horrible homemaker! So I’m going room by room and cleaning them out. It may take me all day, but my goal is to get it done by tonight. This way I can really get back to normal and start posting again.
So while I’ll be breaking a sweat today, tell me, what have you been up to? Anyone storing food for the winter yet?
