Aaah, Friday...

A migraine ruined my Thursday. Thank God for Breakfast At Tiffany's and Elizabethtown, cozy blankets and an endless supply of tea. I'm feeling much better today. I couldn't be happier that it's Friday. The rain is coming down incessantly outside. I love it...just as long as it doesn't rain tomorrow for Di and Shawn's big day. Despite trying on what seemed like every dress in Canada, I did not buy a new one for the wedding. I'm going with the fallback dress, old faithful.

I bought one of those foam roller things the other night. I used to use one in pilates class all the time- and I remembered it being amazing. My back has pretty much been completely screwed for the last few months- and next to nothing has given me any reasonable relief. That is, until now. My new (magic) roller is an absolute miracle. The idea is that you roll your body weight along the foam roller, massaging through restrictions that may occur in the muscle and fascia. Using a foam roller can actually provide similar benefits as a deep tissue massage. I highly recommend using one. I'm pretty much obsessed with mine.

Well, that's about it for today, folks. My lunch break is drawing to a close, so I must sign off. Happy Friday!

I'm sure that the foam roller will be delightful.

Chris bought one a couple of years ago and swears by it. I finally started using it on my SUPER-tight IT Bands and, as much as it hurt in the beginning, I can't believe the difference. Glad you're finding some relief - chronic back pain cannot be fun.

I am interested in trying one of those just because I love pilates. How did you mess up your back anyway? FUCCCK migraines.
