I am not generally a procrastinator but there is one thing that I have been procrastinating about for the past two weeks. And it has been driving me a little crazy!

Item 12 on my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days is to have a massage once a month. This seems pretty easy to achieve on the surface. I mean, who wouldn't want to have a massage. But I have been the world's biggest procrastinator on this one. Those who know me well know that I am pretty full-on when it comes to exercise and also being super busy day to day. So my issue has been that my body tends to have aches and pains from my gym work. Therefore it makes sense to have a sports massage or deep tissue massage. Some would say it was a no-brainer. Something that would be physically therapeutic. But (there had to be a but) my mind is telling me that I should have a nice relaxing massage (with tinkly music and nice smells). Obviously this would be a good thing for my mental state although it would probably not do a lot for the nasty knotty bits in my back. Do you see my dilemma?

I made a decision yesterday that I should simply make an appointment and get a massage. That I could choose to have a deeper massage to sort my back problem out now and perhaps have the nice relaxing massage next month. So I have booked myself in tomorrow to get that sorted. I can bet, pretty confidently, that tomorrow at about 12:30 I will be wondering what was wrong with a nice relaxing massage with tinkly music as I grimace with pain. hahahaha


  1. Well done you and enjoy that massage!

  2. Suggest go with the flow of the more sporty massage, and take along your own choice of music to which ever type of massage you have now and in the future.

    And ask if massage works on broody chooks?
