Spring is here....time for renewal!!! Rethinking.

Friday, March 20, 2009

Well, at least on the calendar. Today it was a whopping 19 degrees outside and I really wanted to get out and walk on the new trail near my home. But, I guess, it's back to the Y to weight train....I'm due anyway. Plus, I'm treating myself to a 30 minute massage this afternoon and I am soooooo looking forward to that. I had bought the massage for my DH for a gift, but in a year, he's not used it and it's about to expire...so I told him I'm using it! lol
I think we all need to "treat" ourselves to something that is wholly good for our bodies and peace of mind once in awhile....work out the kinks....so many of us, never do such a thing. WHY? When it's so good for us. To curl up with a good book, take a hot bath, do some slow yoga...RELAX!! Even if it's just for 30 minutes. It decreases stress, therefore, it must help to decrease belly fat, blood pressure, stress on the heart....you name it!! Maybe with the renewal of Spring, we all need to look at how we treat or "treat" ourselves and show ourselves a little more love!! We only have one heart, mind...body!! Let's treat it right!!!
If you reply...list how you "treated" yourself today or plan to in the near future!

Peace be with you!!

    Well, I really treated myself!! After I got in for the massage, Dixie, the gal who does them, said I was really knotted up, and I was. So, I asked if she had anyone coming in after me, and she said no. So I had her go ahead and make it an hour massage. My calves were so tight and it was quite painful, but she was able to work on them and loosen them up along with my shoulders. Hey, it has been a whole year since I've done this and she lectured me on how important it is to take care of myself. I promised I'd take more relaxing baths, practice more yoga and just try to de-stress when I can more....make the time!! Oh, and get in for another massage before another year has passed!! We all need to do that. And treat ourselves with things other than food...though we can do that too, so long as it's healthy and within our limits. Ahhhhh....I feel like jello!

    LOVE your motivation! I actually went today and treated myself to an italian ice. Soooo good. The weather's cold here, too; about 45 today. Thanks for commenting on my page!
