Today's pampering was actually a lot of emoticon - actually it was emoticon + emoticon = hiking! My family & I spent about 3 hours exploring Starved Rock State Park here in Illinois for the very first time! It was a lot more stairs than I had anticipated so that was a bit rough but I kept pushing and often the views were well worth the time I took to climb.

Right now I am emoticon but it's starting to hit me just how much I need to call it a night and emoticon

Good Night My SparkFriends! emoticon

Today I pampered myself with a long hot shower and doing a few loads of laundry so I had clean comfy PJs to climb into when I got home from working late today :-)

I am so relieved to hear you all are dealing with the cuticle issue too! I thought it was just me that mine seemed like they started to get worse instead of better as I've been working! LOL Who would have thought huh? :-) That hand scrub sounds nice, I'll have to give it a try some time. That and/or maybe I should pull out my paraffin wax warmer & treat myself to a dip this weekend for Mother's Day :-)

Oh, yeah, it's miserable to massage with ragged cuticles or anything like that. And little cuts and things take FOREVER to heal!

Hand care is also essential for me! I've always had super dry skin and my cuticles crack a lot. Being a massage therapist it's hard to massage with cracked cuticles cause I hate wearing rubber gloves. I'm gonna try the hand scrub.

Still working hard to keep my hands in order. I've been enjoying having polished nails again. I really makes me pay attention to the condition of the cuticles and rest of the skin.

I made a quick and easy scrub with raw sugar, pink sea salt, coconut oil, olive oil, and essential oil of bergamot, to give my hands a little treat.

People always assume I have "the softest hands" from using oil, lotion, and cream all the time, but the reality is almost exactly the opposite: my fingertips and pads in the corner of the nails are thick with calluses from giving pressure and friction, and my cuticles are a hot mess because of constant hand-washing. I am diligent about keeping my nails trimmed as short as possible (I have large nail beds, so this is crucial), and I have been putting a lot of effort into
"hand rehab" lately, but it is a slow road.

That's great news, Chrissi. I know some folks who work at Elements in this area, and they only have good things to say. As far as franchises go, it sounds like it is a much nicer work environment than places like Massage Envy, and that their MTs are treated better and paid more fairly. Good for you!

We had a faculty meeting tonight. Kind of the opposite of pampering, lol.

I'm super excited!!! I had an interview last week on Wednesday & it went very, very well!! I'll be going back on Tuesday for the hands-on practical part (her schedule went wonky & I couldn't do it Wednesday) and then as soon as my license number *finally* comes through I'm hired!!

I'll be working at a great establishment named Elements Therapeutic Massage and I'll be at the location in Woodridge, IL. The shortest shift they have is 4 hours and the longest I believe is 8 hours. I am looking forward to it so much!!

She was not phased at all by my lack of ability to do deep tissue or sports style massage, and she was even less phased by the fact that I have R.A.!! I am so amazed and grateful and eager to start!! :-)

Love & Light to you all my friends :-)

A friend of mine from massage school made a *huge* find for me yesterday - she bought me a Homedics Paraffin Wax Machine for only $5!! She found it at the Grand Opening of a new Goodwill store near where she went for a job interview. Since she has a wax machine & she knew I was looking for one she picked it up for me!! I am super excited!! emoticon

I spent today testing it to be sure it worked (it does) and also warming it up to clean what wax residue is left from the previous owner. I want it as clean & sanitized as I can get it before I put in the new wax I picked up today!! I cannot *wait* to do another wax dip on my hands & I think I'm even going to really pamper myself by dipping my feet for the first time ever. My R.A. hits my hands & feet the worst so it's good to know I can use it for myself *and* add it to the list of services I am able to offer now as well!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

In Gratitude, Love & Light,
Chrissi

Another vote for rolling from me! I was introduced to myofascial release using foam rollers by my first Pilates instructor, who encouraged me to become an instructor, myself. I later used rollers and balls for MF release and fitness fun in my own classes, and now as a massage therapist, I recommend them to any client who want to perform more thorough self-care.

I've been foam rolling for 10 years, long before i became a massage therapist. It started with some research because i was waking ache, barely walk in the morning (fibro runs in my family) I found freedom from pain with foam rolling, increase flexibility etc.. my source was Sue Hitzman M.E.L.T. Method, although I have not taken her certification program. she recently came out with a book I just purchased. I get my foam rollers from OPTP.com, I use the pro-foam, difference density depends on a person condition I use soft (pink), and upgraded to more firm although my IT band I use soft (ouch) ;-). My favorite BOOK that gives great instructin for use is the Pro-Roller massage essentials. I roll everything, my pecs, arms, glutes, back, legs, feet, etc...

Well, I will admit I'm feeling daring enough today to maybe attempt to pamper myself with a soak in the bathtub! I haven't soaked basically since I was diagnosed because with the RA I was (and occasionally still do) have a rough time getting up and down. Today though, I'm feeling okay enough I'm tempted to try. My parents picked up the boys so it'll be just hubby & I should anything end up funky LOL I think I'll turn on one of my meditation CDs too :-) Wish me luck!!

HEART4ADVENTURE ~ I hear you loud & clear about the foot Rubz ball! I got the mini one for Christmas along with some China-Gel and boy do my feet get pampered when they need it most! That Rubz ball is my best friend for both my feet and hands! Glad to know others are loving it too :-)

I have had wonderful results with the Mattes method, and clients are always impressed by the immediate changes. Do you use it much?

Yesterday, I treated the side of me that likes a challenge to TurboKick instructor training, which included 4 or 5 hours of kickboxing. Today is a totally different kind of pampering: a REST DAY!

I haven't looked into any training classes yet - my luck they'd all be before I had my license number for it to count for my ConEd! LOL I'm diving into about 3 different CS books from the Upledger group so I know they'll be good! Getting a head-start never hurt! :-)

I'm also starting to learn about EFT or Tapping - a different take on acupressure that sounds really interesting, amazingly simple and has results that are really awesome to read about!

Tonight my pampering is simply going to bed after very long, but very good, day of errands and such. I am physically & mentally exhausted. So Good Night & Sweet Dreams My Friends!!

Hey Rheyn :-)

No, I don't think they do. I know they welcome alumni back within reason as we've had a few graduates come back now and then to sit in on a specific class just for the refresher. I'm wondering if I can do that with the clinic side of things and go in at least once a week to be worked on. It would be helpful! :-)


Today I went to the library to return the books I was done with and picked up a whole bunch more! Including ones on CranioSacral and Reflexology just to delve a little deeper into those subjects. I would really like to earn my ConEd and a Certification in those two as well as a few others - sooner rather than later! - but I have to wait till I have my license number (which I'm *still* waiting for!) first so I'm trying to be patient as IL is at least 2 months behind in getting things taken care of. Then again, I passed my exam in October and that means it has been about 3 months so hopefully *soon* I'll see it!!!

Yeah, I'm tempted to see if I can go back to my school maybe once a week to be worked on in the clinic on a school night versus having to try to schedule myself for the clinic... otherwise, I sadly don't have the extra $$ to really treat myself...

Today I managed to sleep in a bit (even with the boys home) and then spent a nice part of the day just reading :-) Hooray for books! :-) emoticon

You of all people should be getting frequent bodywork, Chrissi! Glad to feel good.

Thanks for the good vibes, Jenae. It's going to be a while, but I remain hopeful, lol.

I'm going to paint my toenails with the great new Zoya polish I got on special last week.

Went for a massage interview today and after I worked on the boss, she actually put me on the table and worked on me for about 10-15 minutes - it felt *wonderful*!!! I haven't had a massage in months so it was a blessing indeed!! :-)

I'm with you regarding schlepping the massage table.
And the travel time! Ugh
I have a massage room in my home and appreciate the convenience and serenity it offers me and my clients.
Please keep me posted about the basement progress.

Mmm, that sounds nice. I wish I could use candles or an oil burner in the office. That's one reason I can't wait to finish our basement -- we're putting in a studio for me so I can see more private clients without traveling (schlepping the table is such a pain!)

Sadly my friend, I was sick for another few days but I am now over it and doing well!

I have two interviews in the next two days that I'm looking forward to - one is really close to home so I have everything crossed for that one! :-)

I went to a few places today and dropped off my resume - between that and the gym I racked up nearly 10,000 steps today! So to pamper myself I gave myself a hand massage to rub in some China-Gel on my tired feet, slid them into my favorite fluffy fuzzy socks and then gave them another massage with my mini-massage ball. They feel better already. As soon as I'm done on the laptop my hands are getting the same pampering :-)

Have a wonderful week my dear friends!!

In Gratitude, Love & Light,
Chrissi

I spent a good part of the day wrapped up in a cover just trying to relax & stay warm during my chill spells. Hoping I'm not getting sick again as I really don't have the time to be - my boys go back to school in the morning and I have to be able to get up and get them moving as hubby will be at work.

Can't think of a thing today.
Went to three meetings, picked up produce for the animal shelter and did a massage.
Oh yes. I was surrounded by positive thinking friends all day.

I've been sick on & off the past 2 weeks: get a little better then relapse, get a little better then relapse... no idea what's kicking my butt but I wish it would go away. Now, though I've been sick and spending most of my time in bed, I've been pampering myself by reading good books when I'm awake enough to read & strong enough to hold the book (some days that's been a problem).

I've made it through a few good books and am grateful for it. I missed the recreational reading when I was in school and am grateful that I've got lots of time now to make up for it. :-)

Today with no one home, I listened to my body (a little grudgingly to be honest) and slept as much as it asked me to. Boy did I sleep!! I do feel better for it in the end and even accomplished a pretty big task by myself (even with my achy RA hands). I pulled the sheets off of our bed, pulled off the still fairly new memory foam pad and unhooked the bed warmer. I flipped and tucked said memory foam under the bed warmer and managed to re-hook it all together. Now the warmer should hold the foam in place (it kept sliding all over the place) and I should be able to use the warmer on my side of the bed to keep me from getting too cold/achy with the cooling weather. To top it all off I put on fresh sheets and remade the bed :-)

I was exhausted yet energized when I was all done :-) It felt good to do something that needed doing :-)

Today I am pampering myself for $5. I'm going to head over to my local Great Clips and have them shampoo and condition my hair so I don't have to use my sore hands to do it. Plus, it always feel better to have that little scalp massage from someone else now and then :-)

What will you do to pamper yourself today? :-)

I'm hoping maybe tonight to paint my fingernails for the first time in ages. I found a semi-glittery gold that I hope will lift my spirits a little. I'd love to paint them the purple, red or other crazy combinations I usually do to cheer myself up but because of school I can't do that just yet...

Today's other pampering has been finally sitting back, relaxing as much as Ray & Lui will allow me to and catching up on many of my SparkTeams and SparkFriends. And if you're not sure who Ray & Lui are go catch my blog post about them here: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

All of you are always in my thoughts and prayers, even if I don't say much on here lately. Wishing each of you & yours the brightest of blessings.

I decided things are more fun with fingernail polish on, so I did it again: a non-pattern of grey, brown, and light purple. It will probably be totally ruined after a day or two of work, but I don't care, because it's cute! And now that I'm done with my H&W schoolwork, I have some time to spend on frivolous things. (Toenails are army green, BTW.)

Mine was a two-parter, between last night and this morning. I finally got around to taking off old toenail polish (a month or so old -- no chips, but I was sick of looking at it) and gave my weird double-toenail (half of one of my nails has two layers from when I damaged the nail matrix and the nail stopped growing for several months; it generated a new one, which grew underneath and has been pushing the old one out) a good fixing-up, let the ol' tootsies breathe overnight, and this morning, painted them bright green.

Since I made it part of the Team Goals, I decided it needed a topic to go with it so we can all share our favorite ways to pamper ourselves - who knows, we may pick up a new way to relax after a long day :-)

So - How Did You Pamper Yourself Today? emoticon
