I Love My Mass-ahhh-ges
I feel like I’ve done so much today!
I started my Sunday with a delicious breakfast of Van’s Whole Wheat waffles topped with Greek yogurt, banana, peanut flour sauce, and raspberries.
And then it was time for some errands. I treated myself to a deep tissue massage which ended up being SO PAINFUL on my legs! I knew they needed the work though, so I cringed through it. Thankfully the back and neck part felt wonderful. I tend to get massages more than most people, but I don’t feel guilty about it. I get them for pain relief more than just relaxation because I get extremely bad knots in my neck and shoulders. I know massages have also been shown to improve the immune system and decrease stress too, so I like to think they are actually good for me!
- Do you get massages? Do you feel guilty about them?
After the massage I did a little shopping. I got a few new dishes at Homegoods (weee!) as well as some fun spring clothes.
And then ran to the grocery store to stock up on fresh produce before making myself lunch. I made myself a pizza on a whole wheat tortilla that I topped with jarred pasta sauce, spinach, orange pepper, mushroom, and vegan cheese. It went into a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
On the side I had some curry roasted broccoli, and dessert was an apple.
Post-lunch I went to my friend Taylor’s house for some gossip and night re-capping with the girls, and then stopped by my friend Alex’s new house! He actually has lived next door to me since we were five but recently moved into a house his family owns in an area called The Hill. It’s such a cool house, but I miss having him in the neighborhood 😦
By the time I got home I was FAMISHED and knew I couldn’t wait until dinner to eat again. I immediately made myself a wrap filled with almond butter and some carrot sticks. Then I had two dates and some chocolate chips.
I’m planning on making Black Bean & Sweet Potato Chili for dinner, but with my parents almost home from Notre Dame I’m not sure if plans will change. I also need to practice the harp, prep some meals & blog posts, and unload the dishwasher. But that will have to wait because the current episode of Restaurant: Impossible features an Italian place in St. Louis.
I love busy but productive days! I just wish I had a three day weekend like the rest of the world. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
