Treat Yourself Tuesday # 2

Good Morning, kids! I just finished an awesome, easy 4 mile run that for whatever reason hurt like the dickens.


At least it was pretty.


Dead Garmin. Le sigh.

Anyway, it’s time for another Treat Yourself Tuesday, sponsored by Becky at Olives ‘n’ Wine! Yayyyyy!

I had a fair few treats this week, from the little things, like my favorite green chia kombucha as an afternoon pick-me-up,


(Mmm, green chia kombucha)

To some awesome things.


(Beach time. Always a treat.)

I’m also being more aware of when I need a break, and asking for it. When we came home Sunday night, I was beat and tired from the fun-filled weekend. I knew I didn’t have the energy or patience to deal with unpacking and cooking dinner for an over-tired and hungry family. So I asked Hulk to put dinner together while I took a long shower. I’m trying to get better at identifying my limits so I don’t cross them so often.

Finally, this afternoon I have scheduled for myself a MASSAGE! It’s only a 30 minute sports massage for my legs, but I am so psyched. Massahhhhhge.

That’s it for me today, peeps. Tune in tomorrow for a new What I Ate Wednesday.

  1. I’m glad you had fun in Santa Cruz, I hear it was b-e-autiful this weekend. I’m still a little leary over the Synergy brand over a bad experience, but I love the green Kombuchas. Take me with you to your massage, por favor?

  2. A massage???! SOOOOOOO jealous!! Enjoy yourself! And if I were to try Kombucha for the first time… what kind would you recommend? I’m afraid it is going to make me sick or hurt my stomach but it is supposed to be good for your gut, right? Thanks for linking up!

    • Kombucha reminds me of “healthy” soda, since it’s a little effervescent. The chia version would be great for first timers since most of what you taste is the chia (if you like chia, that is). Otherwise I’d go for a “light” version with the fruit juice flavoring. It’s less intense and doesn’t have the little floaties in it that used to freak me out. The Guava Goddess is really good, and Hulk likes the Synergy (I think that’s ginger and some berries or something). Anyway, give it a try; all you’ve got to lose is $4! πŸ™‚
