5 Ways I'm Treating Myself This Weekend


I'm linking up for the last weekly Friday Five link-up.  While I have enjoyed this weekly link-up and will miss it, I do want to wish Courtney, Mar, and Cynthia the best!

Something I often do for myself is take a "Vicki day"... this is a day devoted only to me, and the practice of self-care. Today was 'Treat Yo Self' day ... Parks and Rec fans will totally understand... in honor of the holiday, I'm having a "Vicki weekend". These are the 5 ways I plan to treat myself:

  1. Spend a little time at the doctor's office... getting that well woman exam should be a priority for every woman once a year.

  2. Get a massage ... I can't believe it, but it has been over 2 years since I went in for a massage... I'm way overdue!

  3. Pamper my feet... I've been pounding the pavement pretty hard, and my feet need some TLC.  Pedicure, here I come!

  4. Facial... way too long since my last one (are we sensing a theme here), looking forward one this weekend!

  5. Logging some miles!

What do you do to treat yourself?  Do you take a "self day"?

I'm linking up with Eat Pray Run DC, Mar on the Run and You Signed Up For What for the Friday Five link up.

  1. Sounds like you are going to have a lovely weekend pampering yourself. I have been wanting to get a massage since I completed Chicago on Sunday but was way to sore earlier this week. Now that I am feeling better I may go this weekend. I was just afraid it was going to hurt too much and not feel relaxing if I went too soon.

  2. I have Thursdays off but they're never a "Wendy day"--I usually run around getting things done. But I have started at least making the afternoons mine. I lay on the couch for a couple of hours. I read, nap, get caught up on blog things...

  3. I really wanted a massage before this race -- need it! -- but just not happening. Way too busy exploring. But 2 YEARS????? Girlfriend, that's way too long!

    Despite not working, I rarely get a day to myself. Taking care of the house, the husband, lately the parents, the furkids . . .

  4. My birthday is Sunday so I'll be doing some "me" things over the weekend! Thanks for linking up with this for this final week!

  5. I love "treat yo self" from P&R! I'd definitely get a massage too. Maybe spend some time with my pups and then head into NYC and go to a really tasty veg-friendly restaurant!

  6. I have been trying to focus more on self care as I know it goes a long way.
    "Get a massage … I can’t believe it, but it has been over 2 years since I went in for a massage… I’m way overdue!"
    I actually just realized myself I wasn't getting enough of these so I splurged and got myself a membership at a massage place for a massage once a month. I know this will force me into self care as if it's deducting from my bank acct each month, I will be sure to go!
    Pedicure is something I rarely get though - I should treat myself to one of these =) Oooh and a facial! I haven't had one in like a year.
    Great pampering girl!

  7. Nothing better than afternoon naps!

  8. I couldn't believe it had been that long... I need to get back on a regular schedule!

  9. Happy belated birthday!

  10. That sounds like a great "treat yo self" day :-)

  11. It was a great pampering weekend! I definitely need to get back into the self-care routine... I had been getting massages and pedis regularly.
