Me Time Challenge: pampering

My me time this week started promisingly with a 8am run and  PB this morning. Not bad, even if I do say so myself. In fact, the running has been going very well, and I’ve been managing to get out twice a week. It’s great to get outside, have some time to myself, and do something physical. It’s definitely making me feel more in control, and giving me motivation to improve.

This week, I’m finally accepting that the twins need to reduce their lunchtime nap in the hope that it will make bedtimes run a little smoother. My golden two hour lunch break is my salvation, but I need to reclaim my evenings, and get the kids to sleep in good time. So it will be tough, but I will adjust.

I’m lucky enough to have a few hours at a local spa booked with friends on Saturday evening.  All I have to do is survive until then. And a visit to the spa needs a bit of pampering at home in the run up too. As Emily recently wrote in her Ye Olde bad day remedies, there’s nothing much better than painting your toenails a bright shade of red to pep up your mood. So I’ll be saving that treat for one evening or lunchtime this week.

My challenge to you is to make time for a little pampering too. Have a long bath (preferably with candles and lots of bubbles), paint your toenails (I don’t insist they have to be red, but I would recommend it), or do something different with your hair. Doesn’t have to be something major, doesn’t have to take a lot of time, but reward yourself.

  • *claps enthusiastically* I’m SO impressed by your running. Impressed and slightly jealous that you’ve run further than me. I’m very good at me time, I’m going to have my hair cut tomorrow.
