Mondays are all about finding new ways to pamper… What’s pampering? That’s looking after Number One, doing something nice for yourself, recharging your batteries 🙂 It’s a major part – nay, keystone – of the Flylady programme. If you’re nice to yourself, then you’re better equipped to look after your home and your family. It’s been one of the most difficult things to get my ahead around. Simple in theory but takes practice!
Last week my mission was to download some new tunes (did I mention we get them from our internet provider and it costs nada?) as music is a big motivator for me. The kids are now thoroughly enjoying some classic Michael Jackson and I’ve been listening to various Danish stuff: I’ve Got You on Tape, Kasper Björke, Kashmir and When Saints Go Machine. All good! Glad I finally took 15 minutes to sit down and make it happen… 🙂
Anway, what’s new pussycat? 😉 Well, this may not sound like a conventional pamper, but it’s something that will make me feel g-o-o-d. Regular readers will know that I run two or three times a week. In the very beginning I just ran in the old aerobics gear that I had. Then when I started to feel that I was a ‘real’ runner I treated myself to ‘proper’ running shoes and a running jacket, leggings etc. But the only two sports t-shirts I possess – you know, not ordinary cotton ones but the other kind that don’t get so smelly – are official race t-shirts I got for free last year. Not exactly my colour choice or a good fit. So I’ve decided that I’m ‘worth it’ and am now on the hunt for some flattering ones. Today is, after all, the first day of March. Officially the first day of spring in Denmark. Wish me luck!
Hope you have a marvelous Monday! 🙂
