This week, I have been attending to myself somewhat. I hope that doesn't sound terrifyingly euphemistic, we don't discuss that sort of thing here.
No, I've been:
attending the osteopath - well, once so far, and again on Wednesday. Need another trip to notice any improvement, she doesn't do crunches (violent physical realignments) so I don't know if it will be enough for me at the moment. Fingers crossed. Gently...
I booked a smear test. After only a year or two of meaning to. Sadly the wonderful doctor I raved about last time I went has gone, so we will see what her replacement is like. I'm sad though.
Skin brushing - trying to remember to actually do it, a few days in and my arse is noticeably silky. Woo!
Jaw excercises - I fixed my Neckline jaw exerciser thingy and will try and stick to that too - reviews suggest it fixes tmj, so here's hoping. And it might stop me getting jowls and any more double-chinnier.
**Wait!! I forgot to include my attempts to meditate! Mwa kindly send me a mindfulness in times of stress book that I am absorbing slooowwly, but have started making the effort to practise a bit of meditation again. It's hard because I think of bad things and the children scream and mess it up (I think not minding the screaming children while meditating successfully is a pretty high level skill and don't wish to hear about it if it's not) but I know it's just practice. So, that's in there too.
I'm debating spending money I probably shouldn't on an exercise bike/cross trainer combo - it's tempting - but is it foolhardy madness? It's just one of the things I can do without stopping for a while, and I don't seem to be able to get myself out of the house at the moment. Or in the last 6 months, or whatever. Hmm.
I also have moany bored kids, a work thing to finish NOW (why the hell have I not finished it yet!!) and two stories to complete for friday. It's hard to find time to skin brush and still get things done, people.
The other thing I lust after is one of these - I have been dying for one of these since the onset of adolescence, but I only just found out it's been invented. Please, Jesus and Santa, send me one?
