When I find something I like, or rediscover something I used to like, I tend to overdo it. Or as I like to phrase it, I just "fully embrace" it.
Until I get a little burned out. Then I take a break. I'm quite fickle that way.
Case in point: Ironman. I discovered triathlon in 2007, and in September 2008 I completed Ironman Wisconsin. Zero to full throttle. Then I needed a long break.
Right now my like is a little less extreme. I like corn-on-the-cob. Yes, pause for effect.
Maybe it's because we never had a spring and we are only now starting to see the possibility of summer and nothing says summer like corn-on-the-cob. Or perhaps it's because shucking the corn in preparation is one of the most relaxing, mindful activities I've experienced in awhile.
Or, could it be the treasure-hunt of picking the lost kernels out of my teeth afterward? No, that is actually totally gross and unappealing. Definitely NOT it.
So, I've had corn-on-the-cob with dinner for the last 3 days. It is bound to die out soon, and I know I should try to pace myself but I clearly have some sort of mental illness that prohibits me from putting the cob down.
I also joined a gym today, which I am hoping balances out the craziness of the above confession. I use Living Social and Groupon religiously, and I now have a 1 month membership to Harbor Athletic Club, about 8 minutes from my house. For $20. I don't really need a gym in the beautiful warm weather, but here's the bonus - they have a boatload of classes. I like to try new things...so, look for future posts to include updates on my antics in this brave, new world.
I start tomorrow.
