I will finish telling you all about the amazing vacation (complete with a ton of pictures) later this week. Today I am going to partake in a new blog link up! It’s Treat Yourself Tuesday, hosted by Becky at Olives and Wine. THIS is something I can totally get on board with!! Treat Yourself Tuesday is something I think I am really going to start looking forward to writing about….
Not only am I a huge advocate for doing things to reward yourself, but I am a big fan of Parks and Rec. Half the time when I indulge in something, I have Tom and Donna in the back of my mind… “Treat Yo Self!”
This week I have mostly been indulging in the little things. When we were out at the wineries on Saturday we were eating cheese and I had three regular-gluten-filled crackers. The last time I touched up my toenails I used a little bit of my faaaavorite lotion (that is reserved for after my long runs). Usually I’ll treat myself to a new workout outfit… or a real pedicure… or a super nice bottle of wine. I actually picked out a super amazing pair of running pants that I want to wear to the Rock and Roll Half – I *might* treat myself to them this weekend… but that’s a big might.
Why? Dollars. It’s funny because this week on the host blog, it’s about budgets. And let me tell you this – our budget is about to get AIR TIGHT. Like, no extra spending on anything ever for several months, no matter the reason. Well, scratch that, it is officially air tight as of last weekend. No more fun for me. So I am going to have to figure out ways to treat myself without spending money. Like, at all. It will be difficult… but could be interesting. That is my challenge for the next week, and I am open to suggestions. What do you do to take time and treat yourself that’s free?
Tonight I may treat myself to a new set of nail wraps… I already own them, so technically it’s free… but not really. Help! I need ideas!!
