This past weekend was one of my favorite kinds: I got some time to G-Tox! AKA, my own personal form of detox. When I mention this term to anyone they sort of look like I’m crazy… I think maybe because people associate detoxing with alcohol or sugar or think of it as extreme?
For me personally, G-Tox is time I get to spend by myself, with myself. What other people refer to as “me” time. There is nothing very official about it. Often includes yoga, treats, reading, walking in nature… you get the picture! As an introvert, this time for me to re-charge is super important. The G-Tox this weekend was actually unintentional. D was stuck in the library all weekend with studying and as much as I missed him, I got the gift of a weekend all to myself, which is rare these days. I am so happy it worked out this way as I used to do G-Tox all the time, and forgot how wonderful it can be! Here are some photos from the weekend:
^Kicked off the weekend with happy hour with a bestie #yeswayrose ^Friday night olympic trials CSA snacks, fresh from the farm. I watched some crazy fast track leading up to the main event: gymnastics! Is anyone else obsessed? Perfect Friday night at home for me 🙂^My predictions documented on snapchat^Pre-Saturday morning 6-miler (!) lobby selfie^Post-run donut to celebrate^A much needed summer cut, which was followed by a night out to celebrate a friend’s birthday.^What facetiming with my niece often looks like these days.^Sunday yoga sesh at a new spot on the Upper East Side. How pretty is this studio!?^Felt that post-yoga bliss and strolled home through the park. I wish this photo has sound effects — it was so calming to hear the sounds of families laughing and kids playing. Such a pretty night!
^Finished the weekend right back where I started. Olympic trials part #2! And I hate to brag but my prediction was SPOT ON! So happy for the new fierce five and cannot WAIT to see them compete in Rio in a few weeks. Does anyone else go crazy for olympics gymnastics?
