I got there at 7:45 so as to make use of all their facilities. (I do classes and such in the a.m., and my services in the afternoon.) So, here was my day:
8:00 - Early A.M. Stretch Class (sort of like yoga)
9:00 - Lower Body Workout (and they worked us out!)
10:00 - Pilates
11:00 - Went to the 'cascading waterfalls' by the swimming pool. There are 2 ... 1 hot water, 1 cold ... where you sit under this intense waterfall, like getting a massage. Going from the hot to the cold was refreshing. Afterward, I layed out by the pool for awhile.
11:45-12:45 - Used the hot tub, steam room, sauna.
1:00 - 50 min. Swedish Massage
2:00 - European facial
3:00 - Tropical body wrap (coconut milk and pineapple ... Tahiti flashbacks!)
4:00 - Manicure
How's that for pampering myself? LOL
The only 'down' to my day was that during the manicure, it started to rain ... poured like I haven't seen it in ages. So, I was planning to leave then (and had turned in my robe and such already, or I'd have gone back in the steam room!) so I waited an hour for that to let up. At that point, the traffic was horrendous ... but rain and major traffic, I still didn't get stressed out, so I know my day was effective.
Anyway, it was an absolutely perfect day. I left my cell phone off, didn't check in with anyone (not work, not home) ... I even stopped by the office on the way home NOT for any work, but to have a glass of wine with 2 of my best friends who were working late.
This is something that everyone needs to do at least once a year. I, personally, had a ball. I went alone and basically didn't talk to anyone ... just cleared my mind and relaxed.
