A Birthday Blog

Well, I had meant to start a blog about our beach trip to Perdido Key, FL this past May. However, it's my birthday so I thought I'd blog about that instead - that and I've not really thought out the Beach blog or pulled out the pictures I want to post. 

So, I actually managed to stay in bed until 9:20 this morning. That's a rarity. I was still fairly productive today despite sleeping in and it being my birthday. My husband and I cleared out a spare room to convert into my new weight room. So I had to test it out of course. Today was shoulders, chest, and biceps. I then did 30 minutes of step aerobics. There were the typical Saturday errands to run. I dusted the downstairs. Right now I am making myself some birthday cupcakes - spice cake with cream cheese icing. They are smelling divine.

While I'm struggling with the whole idea of getting older, I do recognize that I should be very thankful. Not only did I live one more day, I made it through one more year. I am healthy and blessed with a husband who loves me and a fantastic family. 


So, I will enjoy this day - and my cupcakes. Cheers!

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
