giving away some self-care
A few years ago, I lost a considerable amount of weight on Weight Watchers. In the time since then, I had lost my motivation to care as vigilantly for my physical being and gained back over half of what I lost. These last weeks, I've been beating around the bush (and beating myself up) about getting back in the saddle and re-prioritizing this here goal of mine.
Because when the shiet hits the fan, this little lady heads straight for the corner baker's.
I decided to dust myself off, kick up my spurs
(can one kick up a spur? I fear I've reached the end of my cowgirl acumen) and get back in the fight.
So I knew I needed to be creative about new ways to comfort myself. This week, I set up a little goal. If I lost any weight at all (even 2 ounces), I would treat myself to a much needed manicure/pedicure.
Well, the week went by and it was harder than I remember.
That first step usually is, bein' all out of the habit and such.
But I stepped on the scale Tuesday night and
(is that what cowgirls holler?)
I had lost! And MORE than an ounce, by god.
Last night, I took my tired old feet and my worn out old hands, and I did right by them.
After all, they sure do a lot for me.
I wanted to make sure they knew I appreciate it.
That got me thinking about YOU.
How have you celebrated yourself this week?
(Don't make me come over there and pistol whip you)
In fact, I have decided to host a little giveaway. Just leave a comment below answering this question, and one lucky cowgirl will be chosen at random to receive their choice of nail polish from OPI. If you happen to be a cowBOY, well then I am sure you can have your choice of nail polish too.
Have a dern great weekend, and I'll see you next week to let you know the winner of this here contest.
