I FINALLY got a massage this morning and it was pretty heavenly. I’ve been telling my counselor, and myself, that I was going to get one since October because I hold a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders, and back. As you can tell it is now March, I’m clearly really good at prioritizing my physical health, not. After running the half marathon my legs were added to the lisyof sore body parts, I knew it would only be a matter of time before I finally got my massage!
I heard about Massage Envy because one was recently built in my hometown, I realized there was one near my school, too! They have an intro massage for only $39, I called last weekend and made an appointment!
This morning my massage was great, although it was a little rough when she got to my back and shoulders. I’m a huge wimp when it comes to having my back rubbed, I’m super sensitive and only professionals don’t hurt me. As I left I signed up for their membership program where you pay $49 dollars a month and get one hour-long massage, non-membership price is $65.The great thing is there is also a Massage Envy in Port Orange, my hometown, and Birmingham, where I’ll be for a large part of the summer, so I can have my monthly massages at those locations, too! I‘m really hoping it will help since I wake up almost every morning with pain somewhere, I’m 21 that can’t be right…right?
I left Massage Envy in a great mood and practically skipped to Target to
spend way too much money pick up a few things! Here are a few of my purchases…
Many more purchases went un-pictured…I have no will power in Target which is why I only allow myself to go every month or so. When I got back from my apartment after my long Target trip I was starving! I ate lunch, which consisted of roasted broccoli, an apple and pb, and an egg white scramble with roasted turnips mixed in…I don’t think I like roasted turnips for the record.
After I ate lunch I all of the sudden felt so tired! I know that can happen after a big meal but it isn’t like I had a heavy lunch. It was the weirdest thing. I tried to get some homework done on the computer but could hardly keep my eyes open, it was about 1:30. I laid for one. second. just to see how it felt, and I woke up 30 minutes later, panicked, and rushed to get ready for my class. Even though I was awake… I didn’t feel really awake until about 6.
My muscles have also been a little sore today and I snapped at poor Rob a few times, too. I’m officially dubbing this a massage induced, mood swing filled day. I know that massages release all kinds of stuff into your system, they tell you to drink lots of water but apparently when it’s been three years since your last massage lots of stuff is released. All that stuff makes you act like a crazy bi-polar person, but I guess that’s not all that different from any day for me! It’s currently an hour passed my bedtime and I’m taking my moody booty to bed!
Questions for You!
Have you had a massage? Did it make you feel like a freak?
Have you done any Jillian Michael’s exercises? I was told not to exercise for 24 hours, I’ll have to give her a shot Friday since tomorrow is a running day!
What is your favorite roasted vegetable? Broccoli and green beans are so yummy roasted but really my favorite is roasted potatoes, so healthy!
