During these cold winter days with snow and blowing winds, we sometimes just have to take some time to pamper ourselves and that is just what I did yesterday and I was able to accomplish that right here at Hallauer House Bed & Breakfast.
I began first with an hour long hill walk on the Sole treadmill at a maximum speed of 4.0 mph. Then 30 minutes of Yoga with WII Plus on the WII balance board. Ah! The stretching was great and the little MII so cute!
Next stop, the far-infrared sauna. Grabbed my book and my water bottle, ducked into the sauna and sweated away for 45 minutes! Now I have seen some luxurious day spas advertising a dry heat sauna experience – $15.00 for 15 minutes or $25.00 for 30 minutes! My sauna was free and it would be free for you as a guest of the B & B! The temperature reached 145 degrees but it is so dry that it felt absolutely divine! My muscles relaxed and all was well with the world! You definitely do not have the type of sweating you experience on a 95 degree in the summer here in Ohio!
When the heat went off, I hopped out of the sauna and into the Jacuzzi whirlpool tub surrounded by candle light, with a glass of red wine, and soft classical music emanating from the Bose stereo.
The entire 3 hours was absolutely fantastic! Now if I only had that many hours everyday!!! But I guess the old adage applies: Carpe Diem! Seize the Day and when the opportunity presents itself, grab it and go with it!
If YOU want to take 3 or 4 hours to pamper yourself, you can do it here at Hallauer House B & B. Come Friday night. Take in dinner and a movie. Get a good nights sleep. After breakfast on Saturday, relax a bit. Read. Go to our on-site gym. Do your workout on the Bow Flex, the treadmill, or the elliptical, do some Yoga or stretching, then head for the sauna, and lastly relax in the Jacuzzi. You might even be able to run into Oberlin and get a deep muscle massage from Artie or Scott! Go out to a great dinner at one of our fabulous restaurants, take in a movie at the Apollo, and come back to the B & B to sip on wine, read a good book, or watch a movie on satellite. After breakfast on Sunday, head home to the real life. But now you are refreshed, rejuvenated, and recharged!
