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 these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
