Here's some things I did on Sunday:
I made breakfast (well, brunch it was, in the end!) of home-made grain bread with fresh organic tomatoes from the veggie box, organic basil pesto and a bit of cheddar - and then I saw an avocado sitting in the fruit bowl. The avocado elevated the toast from yummy to scrumptious! And I got my vitamin E in for the day as well ;)
I finally went and had a wax job done - I was tired of feeling my leg hair fluttering like flags in the breeze whenever I went out for a run! On the walk back from town, the sun was shining and I felt lighter and smoother and stronger than I had for ages, and I thought I should go for a run when I get back, and so I did. I was already in a good mood, but a solid dose of endorphins sent me sky high!
I was making our dinner - pasta with kale pesto - and realised I could multi task and use up some of the blackening bananas, and roast up my almonds and sunflower seeds for the week - so I did the whole lot! Dropped a few things on the floor, but that's a normal kitchen session for me! The house smelled of roasting nuts, cakes baking, apples stewing, it was heavenly! And I had the rare feeling of being organised :)
I had a shower after my run and washed my hair - these days I don't do much with it and let it dry naturally, a la:
But last night I thought I'd just finally unearth the blowdryer from the moving debris and make my hair look a bit smoother - it only took five minutes and it looked better than it usually does! I put a bit of rosehip oil on the ends (haven't bought any Moroccan oil yet) and it felt glossier and healthier than it has for weeks.
I could go on but you get my drift. It doesn't take much to treat ourselves well. Do for yourself what you would do for a cherished friend - have your favourite teas in the cupboard; bake a cake or sweet treat you don't have very often (remember: you can have a slice and then freeze it); spend some quality time with yourself doing whatever makes you feel good - be it going for a run, walk or to a yoga class, getting a massage, reading a favourite book. Have some fun, treat yourself, and do something that you might normally save for a special occasion for no reason....just because.
Why feel good when you could feel fabulous? :)
