Thankful we started planning when we did, and that I keep coming back to focusing it. I think our pacing has been going ok. Just need to get stuff sorted ASAP to reassure myself and everyone else, and also create the space for focusing on moving and business building :) 1 day ago
Everything with M is going beautifully. We feel so loving and supportive of each other and what we are trying to accomplish. We worked out a place to move this fall, and that is taking a lot of the pressure off life in general.
As for wedding planning, I am rather up to my eyebrows in details rigt now!
This morning we went up to the churh where we are having our reception. M and my mom joined me… We met up with the church office manager, and also our caterer.
Got a floor plan for the space, checked out tables, chairs, and all the serving options from the kitchen, plus plates, bowls, forks, etc etc.
Worker out where we are going to put the buffet, so that is good.
Got a lot more details to work out and inalize in the next week or two:
Invitations need to be chosen, printed, addressed and mailed within the next ten days.
Got to decide on color and seein of bridesmaids dresses. And match the men’s vests + order. Accessories too!
My shoes, veil, and hair style + make up red to come into clarity.
Beverages and who is serving…
Order the blankets
Work out snacks
Choose cake and order
Order twinkly lights
Choose creative guest book option
Nail down time line of events and what activities we are doing…
Continue to follow up on music options
Get dance lessons scheduled…
The list truly goes on and on! 1 day ago
Lost several lbs. am eating nourishing food and getting excericse in daily. This morning it was yoga and a walk down to the natural food store for a light lunch. Taking my supplements and getting plenty of sleep. Played in the gardens on Sunday with my honey for an engagement shoot. Like how a bunch of the photos turned out, and inspired to continue shaping up :) 2 days ago
Going to rent a pod, store nearly all of our stuff, and save some money with a win win situation – renting a room from
A fiend for tr two months between leaving here and being able to move into our ideal apartment complex. 3 days ago
I seem to be pretty routinely walking up in the woods at least once a week for a bit. Love getting the exercise and the mental calm or at least awareness I gain as well. Want to step it up before we move away from these beautiful trails. 3 days ago
Gearing back up on he home made food again. Last night I whipped up some home made pesto… Tons of fresh spinach, left over parsley from the night before, and a hint of doterra oregano essential oil. Love my certified pure, therapeutic grade oils! Dumped it over quinoa pasta, stirred it up and called it dinner. Nom nom :) 6 days ago
Passed through the screening process that included a thorough application, participating in a training, and two seperate interviews of more than an hour long each. The chiropractor in the group “sealed the deal” for me when he gave his approval after meeting with me yesterday. So excited about this new embankment as a business owner… Know it is going to be transformative! 6 days ago
Saved us from a fight tonight. M had messages me earlier today about something he set up for us. I felt angry and aggitated that he had invested in a big life transition strategy without consulting me for mutual agreement first. Asking clarifying questions about the situation rather than just tearing ito him for his disrespect, lead me into awareness that he made a good call, and the contract is flexible with no harm done in any way :). Glad I could give him praise instead of grief by chosing my response compared to what I would have done in the old days. 1 week ago
Have been eating this, that, and the other lately. Mostly quick bites such as sandwiches and wraps from the local natural food store. Sometimes something to bring home and pop in the oven. Tonight I was inspired to put my own health first – to go with what would recharge me. Because I deserve to be overflowing with good energy and wellness. So I bought tomatoes, onion, parsley, and kale, and made a fine chopped salad/salsa to enjoy with GMO free corn chips. Feeling good! 1 week ago
Met with my 3 upline mentors today, in a class format held for myself and some of my coworkers/colleagues. Really inspiring. I feel the shift. I am on track. I am already becoming someone new – a me I respect and am impressed by. I embrace my growth and commitment to empowerment and being a professional in my fields! 1 week ago
I’ve been practicing this a while, and it makes such a difference! Thanks for the reminder to keep foused in such an eloquent quote :) 1 week ago
I think at this point we will, if we are allowed to, (land lord needs to look over legal ramifications of letting us use it like this), ... and if we don’t find a better option, where we could save more and had the convenience of on site showers etc. 1 week ago
Think we may do something slightly insane… I think we may temporarily move into a single room that is available! Idea is to put all our stuff in a 16 ft pod. And then take the bare
Minimum and set up this room to be a professional office break room by day, and our sleeping quarters by night. Idea would be to have a mini fridge, table, folding chairs, etc and a futon. Fold down the futon each night, to have a place to sleep on the down low. We would join a gym up the road for shower acess. A bit hairbrained, but we are sick or financial stress, and living this way for 6-8 weeks before our new apartment comes available could leave us with upwards of $1500 in our restocked emergency fund. Might just be worth saving the $30/day :) 1 week ago
Lost focus a little… Getting back on track now. Outdoor time, earlier bed time, lots of hydration, smaller portion sizes and less sugar again. Strictly avoiding chocolate. Etc :)
Also tidied by eye brows yesterday… Feeling better about my tragectory again :) 1 week ago
Walked yesterday morning and last week as well :) 1 week ago
1 hr business class. 45 mi. Lecture on how to safely incorporate supportive us of the products for pregnancy and birth. 1 week ago
Heading down to Wilsonville to check out an aparent complex M found as a potentially good fit. 2 weeks ago
Filed tons of mail: bills, paperwork, receipts, etc. feels great to know thy are safely sorted in a filing cabinet and will be easy to keep track of even with our upcoming move. Less to move too, as I shredded and recycled the eclectic junk that didn’t need saving 2 weeks ago
Invested our time very intentionally this last couple days. Drive out to Bend yesterday to please my parents who had invited us out to share a rental home over the holiday weekend. Had a good time connecting with them and my sister + her sweetie. Enjoyable fireworks show in a back yard complete with camp fire. Quality time for M and I driving out and back too. Getting out of the city is so peaceful for me. Feeling quite relaxed.
This afternoon we learned how to start Tremmering … Wild nervous system ride. Likely part of what has me feeling so mellow now…
Tonight I’ve lit candles, and streaming music, as I putter around creating space and clearing our home. Inspired after a documentary on tiny homes – and how intentionality with belongings and caring for ones space pays off so beautifully. :) 2 weeks ago
A sprain/strain almost always go together… Hard to tear muscle fiber without also grieving the ligaments at the same time. A very mild one can mostly heal within a few days to a week or two… Mid to severe sprain/strains tend to need at least 6 weeks of babying. Worth really tending it gently, rather than risk injuring it worse, or slowing healing process. Do take it through non weight bearing and gentle range of motion exercises. Elevate and ice is good of course, gentle compression too. A friend has also shared the trick of doing a white wine wrap… Soak a cloth in wine, wrap around injury, put a plastic bag gathered up over it, and then your ace bandage on top or that. :) 3 weeks ago
Have been out of the house for better part of 10-13 hrs a day for the last 6 days straight… 3 weeks ago
Came down to crunch time for bills this month after blowing through so much money by going to Dubai in June… Totally worth the trip though, and glad I had the cash there when I needed it,... Which in someways is ultimately te point. Now to regroup and strengthen baby fund and emergency fund alike! 3 weeks ago
Saw my first client (one of my besties) in the new space today. Felt great to be there! Want to spend time there seeing lots of lovely clients, and just being studious and contemplative on my own too :) 3 weeks ago
Spent four days straight embedding new understanding of our bodies into my brain and body alike. Four days of visceral manipulation per the Barral institute… Always intense, and this time all the more so as it was my first time having Ron as our instructor… Love his passion for knowledge and refinement of understanding, both for the joy of grasping the powerful of all our bodies go through to heal, and of course to better facilitate the process!!!
Got my organs worked very, very, very thoroughly in labs! Spleen, kidneys, liver, etc… And even pancreas nudged gently into waking up as we engaged it through the neighbors of D2 and spleen…
Anyway, a physically and emotionally + professionally transformative time!!! 3 weeks ago
Sorry for the ridiculous typos… Think I was fuzzy headed from insane amounts of bodywork….
Hope you have a great night. 3 weeks ago
I know that one can get really ill (even die) if they drink excessively huge amounts of water and wash out their electrolyte balance. I know that symptoms including cardiovascular health and general fatigue can be related to needing electrolytes. I asked my teacher today (a phenomenal ND),... He said the answer is complex and based on a whole host of things. I know that for me, if I eat enough fruits, fresh veggies, nuts etc, and get enough salt in my diet I am usually ok. I can usually handle 40 ounces of water a day or so before I feel any need for electrolytes. But that is me. 3 weeks ago
Total highlight to find Harvil Hendrix and his wife and co-author Helen Hunt’s book on relationship saving truths.
Our turmolt on Saturday was an eye opener for me that it is time to be more proactive and engaged in personal and relationship development again and on-goingly.
This beautiful little book is humorous, easy read. Poignant truths, that will be interesting to work on evolving with practice. Inspiring and faith renewing though too :) 4 weeks ago
A few thoughts:
Are you drinking pure filtered drinking water? Tap water, or inadequetly purified water is often hard for the body to tolerate much of, let alone desire in our system.
2- have you tried putting a single drop of a therapeutic/ingestable grade essential oil, such as lemon or lime in your water glass? This can make water consumption easier and more pleasant
3 – electrolyte balance? Sometimes if water seems in appealing, it is because I am low on key electrolytes and my body doesn’t want to get further out of balance…
Anyway, hope this helps and you soon enjoy all the beautiful benefits of being fully hydrated :) 4 weeks ago
