Decompressing and Shock Cardio

Jason and I both took today (and tomorrow) off to continue to decompress from the holidays. We went to a noon spin class. It was short and intense. I also did abs after class for good measure. After the gym we made a much-needed stop by his office so I could pick up a very important package. I've been waiting for this package since around March - Shock Cardio! It was due to arrive Christmas Eve (of course), and Jason's office was closed (of course). So I have had to learn some patience, a virtue I am lacking. I am so excited to have the new cardio options that I don't even know where to begin. I think it's safe to say that I'll be trying out one of these babies tomorrow. I'm thinking Cardio Core Circuit.



The rest of the day was mostly about piddling and just enjoying having the day off together. After getting cleaned up post-gym, we went and ate lunch. Nothing fancy, just a little spot we enjoy. They offer a few vegetarian options, which sure beats most restaurants around here. Jason and I both had gift cards to Barnes and Noble so that was the next stop. I browsed the recipe books, but we both left empty handed. Then it was Target, White House Black Market (sorry honey), and The Container Store (a neat-freaks mecca).

Not sure what we'll be doing for dinner. Feeling very lazy. I cooked off some lentils earlier in the day with full intention of making lentil burgers. Those are still sitting in the fridge and will likely remain there until tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow's post will be more exciting or food filled at least. I think it's safe to say there will be some sort of post-workout report on the new DVD! ;-)

  1. Sounds like a great day. The hubby and I will be doing something similar tomorrow.

    You left the bookstore empty handed? Wow, I am impressed. I can't remember the last time I did that.

    Can't wait to hear what you think of the new DVDs.

    talk to you later,
    Alicia

  3. Ok, I'm glad someone else appreciates the awesomeness that is The Container Store! I want one of everything, haha.. I am so the 'everything has its place person' too. Did you get anything fun at White House Black Market (also one of my faves)?

  4. Alicia I really can't believe I walked out empty-handed either! Very unlike me. I LOVE books.

    Hi Dani glad you like the quote. I'm not normally a quote person, but I really like the message of that one. Thanks so much for stopping by! Let's just say I live in the south.

    Alyson my husband just doesn't get my slight obsession with The Container Store. Men... I have to keep myself out of there or I'd have more containers, shelving, drawer organizers than items to contain, drawers to organize, or places to shelve! I did find one thing at WHBM, turtleneck on sale. Not so much fun, as a basic staple item.

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

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
