Earth Still Turning

So, as I had promised myself, I was going to try to do better about rolling with the punches so to speak. Not freaking out if and when my rigid schedule goes off track. Some things are more important than sticking to a timeline that is pretty much meaningless to anyone but me.

My sister is going through a really tough time right now. She was able to come stay with me last night so I got in my workout on Thursday and took Friday as a rest day to spend time with her. We had a great time as predicted. I hate it that we don't live closer. Anyway, Saturdays are typically cardio and weights days for me. I get up and get in my workout done, have my egg white omelet and move along with the rest of the day. But, with my sister up, I had to do some revision. And you know what, it was fine. The world as I know it did not split in half. Again, spending time with her was much more important. So I just relaxed and enjoyed the time with her. We did the girly shopping thing of course. Hit the mall, Target, and DSW (shoes...shoes...more shoes!). We had lunch together, and I enjoy my cheese dip wholeheartedly! Oh, and I bought and wore another hat today!

After my sis left, I did briefly contemplate letting my workout for the day slide. But, I couldn't stray that far from my schedule. I mean, there are limits and all. I did end up forgoing weights, but did do a step workout (Imax 3) that includes plyo blasts and tacked on pushups at the end. So, no weights on Saturday and the earth is still turning... Who would have thunk it? I didn't have my egg white omelet either. Guess what? Yep, earth still turning.

  1. Heather,

    My to do list for the day is only half crossed off. And ... my world is still turning too.

    BTW, love shoes. How many pair did you buy? I can't come out of DSW with less than 3 pair. My hubby always marvels at the number of shoes I have. Imelda Marcos has nothing on me.

    have a great evening,
    Alicia

  2. Hi Alicia ! I actually managed to walk out of there sans shoes! I had a pair that I was carrying around with me for a while. I did really really good though and put them back. My husband was shocked to say the least!

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.












Reintroducing Myself

We'll begin with the basics. I'm Heather. I started this blog in 2009 with the intent of sharing my love of exercise and healthy eating (and a little bit of personal stuff of course). I blogged, and blogged and blogged my heart out. Every.Single.Day.

I forgot how to sit down to eat without a) typing it up in the blog and b) photographing it. We didn't have hot meals for quite some time I might add. I was doing it all wrong of course. But, at the time, I loved it. I loved sharing my ideas for healthy, tasty, vegetarian foods.

Blogging also gave me an outlet to share my passion for exercise - lifting weights, HIIT workouts, running, even following along to DVDs at home. It was probably one of the boosts I needed to finally pursue my quiet goal of becoming a certified personal trainer.

My blogging style began to shift. My focus was shifting. My desire was shifting. The less I blogged, the more time I had. The more I felt I could breathe. I wasn't comparing my food to othe…
