Feat Accompli!

Try this with bath salts! I get 'em from the great bulk bath salt bins at a Whole Foods Market near my apartment!

petitfor's picture

I'll do this every week after my long run--perfect time to take a bath!

jenniechris's picture

Any reason to soak it up in the bath tub is fine by me, I'll have to replace my usual glass of wine with a cup of tea though. 

ReneeLRohrer's picture

Renee, totally with you on that.  Somehow it seems less indulgent if I can't have some wine or a hot toddy with that weekly bath.

Also, just got this in email.  7 Bathtime Indulgences.  Seemed like a good time to share :)

sandyliz's picture

hahah! Sandyliz, i was JUST logging on to post that same email. I want the rose one!!!

vonhottie's picture

Oh, I'm a devoted bath taker so this is an easy feat for me. I'm a fan of this bath oil from Ren which has a gorgeous rose scent and leaves no residue on the tub. I'm also a big fan of Weleda stuff too.

Raviahmad's picture

I just got out of the bath tub. I used aura carra foaming bubbles from whole foods.  Lavender... and candles .. and the ocean waves in the background... I relaxed so much I almost cried...

kornflowers's picture

I love taking baths, but sometimes need to be reminded to take the time, so I'm grateful for this feat. Took a long bath with mineral salts after yoga tonight, then lounged around in a fluffy white bathrobe for a while. I think I'm going to sleep well tonight.

neversent's picture

i love this, i want to integrate at least one/two a week into my schedule from now on. so, so relaxing and somewhat helpful for my insomnia. it's nice to play some music as well, particularly something mellow/ambient. loved it.

I was listening to a radio podcast this weekend that said that if you get out of the bath to pee you are middle class.

This sounds like we need a SW poll.



@HereNow's picture

Great bath this weekend with Epsom salts and WNYC Select Shorts!!!


There's an enormous difference between a bath and a shower.

If only I had the time for more baths.  

@HereNow's picture

In life everything is constantly changing, and yet the habits of the mind mcpd training resist that change. To facilitate positive change, American Meditation practices have one singular goal: to know the true Self in every circumstance and security+ certification relationship. After all, if you don’t know your true essence; if you don’t know who you are cissp questions, it's impossible to make reliably beneficial choices.

So my new favorite friday night activity, bathtime.

Llaves's picture

Second bath yesterday after a run.  Listened to Wait Wait... Dont Tell Me while bathing.

@HereNow's picture

I'm all over this challenge!  Enjoying my bath ... by spring, that thing will be yanked out to make room for a standing tied shower from heaven.  

@certainDISASTER's picture

Shower is broke so only baths for awhile.

tcmahunt's picture

This is part of my monday night ritual after playing volleyball indoors.

FrogOmnibus's picture

i did the feat but honestly maybe its just me or maybe its my tub - but its def. not my thing

artichkme's picture

I thought that I blew this feat by forgetting last week's bath, but I took a steam bath at Pure Yoga last Saturday, so I'm still in.

@HereNow's picture

Another nice bath yesterday.  One more and I'm done.

@HereNow's picture

One more to go, and this is definitely the easiest feat for me to accomplish as a warm bath is such a treat during gloomy February, so I'll definitely be completing this one and feel good marking it now.

neversent's picture

Best feat EVER!!! I even took it to the next level and bought a new shower head... So I kinda Pimped my Bathroom too.

Llaves's picture

Bath tonight will finish this one for me. I bought some new bath salts to try since I finished off the others I had.

lhlady517's picture

sandyliz, that photo looks like you in the bath!

sassletics82's picture

Took a bubble bath on 1-16, 1-21, 1-26, 2-1, and 2-10.  I absolutely love a bubble bath once in awhile, especially if I am sore, so I thought I would LOVE this feat.  I wanted to love this feat.  I expected to love this feat.  But 3 /5 baths I spent just thinking about all the other things I should be doing and how I wasn't being productive.  This is sad, I know.  I don't know how to sit still.  I need to work on being able to relax.  I will say that a couple of my baths I went sans electricity, which I actually liked much more than the ones where I had lights and radio going.  

yeahredgymnast's picture

this has been an amazing way to relax. i've been doing it sunday nights as a nice little end to my weekend...i did my final one today :-). snowday baths are nice too!

msh258's picture

I like the looks on my cats' faces when they see me sit in a tub full of water

gleam's picture

Baths still make me anxious. I don't know why but I did it, every week.

FatBottomSlim's picture

The last of my 4 baths last night.  I used my dead sea bath salts.  Every time I get in the bath I say I should do it more often.  This once a week routine was a great start.

VeganDiva's picture

10:30p.m final day...

I've done all the baths but I forgot this week's.

No problem.  I just ran a bath and had it.

(with bath salts)

Feat accompli (with bonus)

@HereNow's picture

I kept resenting this feat when I thought I had no time, but at every single bath at the instant I stepped in, it became my favorite part of the challenge.

babarbanel's picture

I'm having a love-hate relationship with the bath... but I think the bath is winning out.  Got me some amazing lavendar scented bubbles and pimped my bathroomwith new calvin klein chocolate brown towels...

kornflowers's picture

i can't believe it, but i loved this. my final bath was me, a glass of wine, candles, and brandi carlile singing me stress away. great.

twinklefee's picture

Final bath of the challenge was last night, with some Blue Lagoon salts the boss brought me back from a trip to Iceland a while back. Lovely.

neversent's picture

Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy...
