I’m in a writing mood but Game of Thrones isn’t on until tomorrow night. So here’s a list of stuff I’m loving right now, in no particular order:
1.My foam roller. This is more of a love/hate relationship. I had physical therapy for a sore hip and the therapist recommended I try a foam roller. Needless to say, skepticism ensued. However, I’ve really noticed a difference not just in my hip flexors, but in my lower back, neck, and legs. I try to do 15 minutes 4 – 5 times per week while watching tv. It’s essentially a cheap massage minus the pleasure because you have to do the massage work yourself.
2.Sweetgreen’s Mexican Corn Elote Bowl. I tried this for the first time yesterday. It was awesome. I was nervous because I’m a big eater and it doesn’t have protein in it. However, it was plenty of food and I ate an apple as a snack later to supplement. I’m dying to try the hello portobello salad on my next visit.
3.Wegman’s chocolate cake. I don’t get to Wegman’s as much as I’d like to because traffic going to and from is a nightmare around here. I had a piece of their chocolate cake yesterday and it’s that sugary sweet kind with lots of icing I remember eating as a kid. Yum.
4.My lawn. The lawn is in peak condition right now since the heat hasn’t gotten to it yet. It looks just like a green carpet!
5.Early sunrise. Seriously, when the sun comes up at 5:30, it’s so much easier to pop up out of bed and get started. Monday is the longest day of the year so it should stay light out until close to 9 pm. Then it will begin to turn the other way so I have to savor this now while I can.
