This weekend crept up on me in terms of planning. I knew I could turn it into a long weekend, but just didn’t take the time to plan anything. I realized earlier this week that I had a wide-open weekend…. and what’s a girl to do? I’m unapologetically filling it with as many guilty pleasures as I can.
– Going to the movies is a guilty pleasure for me alone (especially if I do it at a weird time, like ducking out in the middle of the workweek). However, my real guilt kicks in when I get a Diet Coke. I used to drink soda all the time growing up and then one day gave it up cold turkey. I went years without it, but now I indulge every now and then. I probably have a soda once every two months? I will absolutely be having a Diet Coke this weekend at the movies!!
– I’m also going to get a massage. I actually try to get one every week, even if it’s just 20 minutes. I have a relatively low maintenance beauty routine so I don’t mind splurging on a massage every week. Well, I go to a super cheap place where it’s only $55 for an hour ($45 + a $10 tip), but I will say that it’s the best massage ever and better than fancy day spas for sure. Now that I’m pretty good at meditating, I’ll spend at least the first bit of it focusing on my breathing and that combined with the actual massage is pure heavenly bliss.
– I also have plans to meet up with Meghan for breakfast on Sunday. French toast is my favorite thing to order when I don’t care about being healthy. The place we’re going doesn’t have French toast, but they do have waffles which definitely counts as a guilty pleasure.
– I have a hard time sleeping in anymore and especially with the dogs it’s usually impossible anyway. But there is no greater feeling than getting up and then being able to get back into bed. I have to do a workout today and I think I’m going to follow it up with a yoga class, but I still think I’ll be able to stay in bed extra in the morning. If I could stay in bed and catch up on Below Deck (my favorite reality tv show right now), it’d be even dreamier.
That’s all I’ve got so far on my “schedule” (haha) for guilty pleasures. I do have to do some productive things so it’s not like the weekend will totally be a waste. But I’m so looking forward to just leaning into the indulgences.
Any fun guilty pleasures you get to indulge in this weekend?
