Feel Good = Look Good
There are two types of people that go to spas like this. Those who primarily care that they LOOK good, and those that primarily care that they FEEL good.

The good lookers spend most of their time in the cardio center pumping away on the elliptical trainers and treadmills. They are also usually wearing the tightest outfit possible to exhibit their hard earned chiseled physique, and have a tight, drawn, look on their face.

Those who primarily care that they FEEL good, are walking around without makeup, with bad hair, in big fluffy robes and silly sandals, going from one indulgent treatment to the next.

I hope I fall somewhere in between. I took a long swim and pushed myself, and then followed it up with some indulgent treatments. But I have to admit, I will ALWAYS want to feel good about myself, both physically and mentally, before I EVER care about how "good" I look.

Exhibit A: I was having a salad in the Spa Cafe wearing my fluffy robe and silly sandals, and had just come from a massage, so I had oil in my hair, no makeup, and was wearing my glasses - IN PUBLIC. A VERY good looking, VERY hard body guy (with highlighted hair, and looking like he had had "some work" done on his nose), was being snippy, short and rude to the waitress for no reason that I could tell, other than she wasn't fawning over him enough .

In such a posh place, where people are trained to wait on you hand and foot, and I was feeling really good and just grateful to be able to do something like this, and he has to bring the whole room down because people weren't paying enough attention to him.

Well, I was, and I was not impressed.

    If I can get the smelling good part right, I call it a win.
