Happy Hump Day!
Phil left for his business trip this morning so we had a breakfast date to say goodbye…I’m gonna miss this guy! We’ve wanted to do one during the week & figured it’d be a great way to get over the mid-week hump! Don’t get me wrong, I love my morning smoothies, but its nice to whip up a little something special & sit down to enjoy a solid meal in the morning! I made pancakes w/almonds, cranberries, greek yogurt & honey – clean eating style of course – and they were divine! I’m thinking these little circles of heaven will be this week’s Foodie Friday post because they’re too good not to share!
While Phil is away I am definitely playing around in the kitchen, working out a little more & getting some much needed cleaning done! There are a few clean recipes I’ve been meaning to whip up, a yoga class I haven’t gone to in awhile & some floors that require attention – of course I’ll sprinkle in a hair mask, biore pore strip & girly movie or two…ya know, the kind of stuff ya just CAN’T do with your man’s around, haha!
Countdown to the yoga conference is 70hrs and counting & I couldn’t be more excited…but more on that tomorrow! What are you doing to get over the mid-week hump?

While the weather has taken a turn back to chilly (below freezing and flurrying) I am keeping a smile on my face! The taste of spring-like temperatures this weekend will hopefully carry my through these few chilly days!
In keeping with my self-care theme from yesterday, I treated myself to a massage! Many may remember my office’s ‘hump day’ celebrations. We’ve done everything from dance parties, to black jack, to pizza and a show and even chair massages! A few weeks ago Hand and Stone Massage came to our office and did 10minute chair massages for everyone in the office as our ‘hump day’ activity.
I have always been a fan of the therapeutic and relaxation benefits of massage therapy and try to go a few times a year, so I was thrilled to have someone relieve some of the tension, even if just for a little while. After my massage they let me know about a program they offer called the “Lifestyle Program.” You pay a monthly fee for one free massage or facial a month plus membership discounts on all other space services. While I have always been a loyal patron of the same holistic day spa in historic Old City Philadelphia, Di Terma Aroma, I figured there was no harm in trying something new, especially for the price.
Yesterday was my first full massage with H&S and I was thoroughly impressed. I opted for the sports massage after my long ride Sunday and my therapist was extremely knowledgeable and talented. The facility was clean, calm and tranquil, and the staff was warm and friendly…I am definitely excited about my choice to join their program!
The benefits of massage therapy are endless and I recommend everyone take the time for some release!
