Challenge 4: Pamper – End of Week
Challenge 4 is something I appear to be very good at telling other people to do and really suck at doing myself. I had set out with intentions of… actually had planned out my pampering… a massage here, a bath there (too much information? lol), a yoga class, a run… so, let’s recap what I actually accomplished: The massage got rescheduled due to other responsibilities. The bath, who has time to sit in the bath?? The yoga class? well, I taught 6 times this week, does that count? and a run… does running to Target in my car count? Yeah, not so much.
But, I still felt relaxed at the end of the week… why? I’d kept in the back of my mind that during the challenge I was to be pampering myself. All the time. I didn’t rush this week. I didn’t stick to “the plan” but let the edges of my date book become pliable instead of so rigid. I didn’t run from one thing to the next and stopped to read my book, listen to my favorite music, and ordered a chai once in a while. And, because of this, I had time to do the things that I wanted to do…. not necessarily what I’d planned to do, but, in a true sense… I was gentle with myself and that’s all I’d hoped for.
Yeah, I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I read that too…. okay…. next week…. a massage 🙂 I didn’t hear about ONE person pampering themselves… except for Kim who came to my power yoga class to be tortured 🙂 Let’s hear about what you did! Yoga? eat some chocolate covered raisins? watch Kung Fu Panda (I did!)? …. let’s hear it! 🙂
