Day 15: Allow yourself an hour to indulge in a guilty pleasure.
The Blurb: These last few weeks we’ve been putting in some work! Letting go of unrealistic expectations, cutting out negative eating habits, working out, scaling back toxic relationships, sorting and donating items you no longer use and even figuring out how to reduce stress. Today you deserve a break!
Suggestions: As I was looking for a funny picture to post, I realized that guilty pleasures seem to fall into one of the following categories: Men and Women, Food and Beverages, Favorite Books or Movies or TV Shows.
The word “guilt” implies a negative connotation as fas as making you feel like you’re doing something you’re not supposed to. As long as its not hurting or bothering anyone else, I agree with the statement above. You shouldn’t have to feel guilty about taking time for yourself or doing something you enjoy.
Which one of these categories would your guilty pleasure fall into? Remember, the whole purpose of the 30 Days leading up to Valentines is to be focused on yourself and to engage in activities that increase your confidence and give you peace of mind.
Keeping It Real: For the categories mentioned, my guilty pleasures would be:
Men and Women- My hubby (obviously)
Food and Beverages- Either Sushi or Mexican food/Wine
Favorite Books/Movies/Shows- My guilty pleasure books would be any Julie James book/I LOVE movies and don’t get much time to watch them lately so at this point ANY movie would be a guilty pleasure movie/My guilty pleasure show was Breaking Bad but now I’ve seen the whole thing and I haven’t found a replacement obsession yet (sad sigh).
An HOUR is so much time to do something! I’m so excited. I won’t be able to make this happen today until late tonight, but it’s happening! I’m going to watch something… not sure what yet, but I’m really looking forward to a great movie and a glass of wine.

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to “have” to watch a good movie! Hope you all have a great evening doing something you love!
