A Clean Start
My birthday celebration was simple and lovely.
It’s funny, I always go into it with mixed emotions and I often feel like if there isn’t a trip or a party or something spectacular, it isn’t a real celebration.
But it is.
We spent yesterday doing a lot of the usual, but with balloons and cake and no obligations and it was perfect (but don’t worry, we are going to Palm Springs in a few weeks to celebrate again!).
Tomorrow I start The 30 Clean and I am more than a little nervous. The program is well-designed with tons of online support, recipes, shopping lists and personal messages assuring you “you can do it!” But I know it’s going to be a challenge. I have been nervous because I have a few big work projects this month, this impromptu trip to the desert, my husband’s birthday…but the truth is, there is never going to be a month where I have no stress on my plate (literally), no celebrations to partake in, no excuses.
So this month is it.
I am not going to post my menu plan for this week here because I am really just trying to wrap my head around it and am not sure what will work and what won’t, but you can see some of the things I plan to eat on my The 30 Clean board on Pinterest.
I hope I make it the whole 30 days.
But for now, I just hope I make it through tomorrow. And maybe the next day. I am going to take each one as it comes. I am going to let go of all those excuses. I am going to commit this energy and this focus to myself.
And tonight I am going to have one last bite of pizza before I do.
Wish me luck! Have a great Sunday.
