last week was just obnoxiously full. full moon, full challenges, full schedule. i'm not one to really believe in zodiac stuff or moon phases to affect my life (i think it's fun to talk about and pretend though!), but hot damn! enough full moon!!! patrick and i felt like we were just living in a constant spotlight where we couldn't get any relief.
we love our new pup byron, of course we do. he's just such a handful. it's been so long since liam was little, i sorta forgot how much work a puppy is. he wakes us up ridiculously early by batting our hair like a cat. (he sleeps on the pillows behind our heads. haha, he's a strange one.) byron puts EVERYTHING in his mouth. he bites me hard! he makes me take him outside late night to pee when the moon is the fullest, and i don't realize how stupidly bright it is outside and i'm not wearing pants and of course neighbors are outside on the bench talking and i just try to pull my tee shirt down and act like it's a dress (?) while i'm chasing a puppy around talking about pee and poop.
i'm also participating in the whole life challenge with a bunch of awesome women at my gym. last week was the first week of 8 where we cut out gluten (another thing i don't believe in for myself, i think gluten free is a fad diet unless you seriously have celiac disease, but that's another blog.), dairy except yogurt, sugar, alcohol, and make sure to exercise and stretch and drink enough water everyday. i feel really good, but i also feel challenged. it's nice to switch up your life a bit and try something new, but i miss pizza. haha! i can tell this will all be so worth it once the 8 weeks are up.
oh yeah! and i took my first barre class last week! it was super fun and hard! i signed up for a month trial at exhale, so i'm going to whore myself out to all kinds of barre and yoga classes. haha, again, nice to do something different and challenge my body and mind.
and purusha work is just a neverending journey. not complaining in the 'effin slightest (!), but man, running your own business is 24/7. i eat sleep and breath active wear. it's an obsession. working on getting my clothing factory ready and dyed and printed not in house, setting up an ambassador program, making new designs, getting purusha in more stores and having sales reps... oooh it's a lot!
the full moon is pretty though, and the fullness of the challenges in my life right now are a gift. one cool thing with byron waking me up all the time was i got to see that crazy moon in so many ways; directly overhead and beaming down on me, or just about to set on the horizon as the sun is rising. i like to be able to see my life too from these many angles and perspectives. i appreciate the waning and the relief all the more.
