Fun Friday

Rewarding Myself
For some reason, I feel like Fridays are a huge reward. I've worked hard all week and feel like I deserve just one day of indulgence. As in no stressing over workouts, enjoying drinks with friends, not carrying about eating pizza, and not "having" to be in bed by 9:30. 

So, today was a rest day for me. Tomorrow will be weights and cardio, but today I'm resting up. 

My sister came up for the evening just to hang out.She wanted to go to happy hour then homemade pizza with my Wheat Pizza Dough. I certainly wasn't going to argue with her on that! I made the dough last night and tried adding 1/2 whole-wheat pastry flour and 1/2 all-purpose flour this time. It seemed really flat unfortunately. I think next time I'll go back to using the 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour, 1 cup all-purpose and 1/2 cup spelt. I got a little cocky trying to make pizza dough healthier. 

Anyway, tonight's a short post, but I wanted to try to add something fun. So, how about a Fun Fact (or 2)? Oh, and then you must answer!

Fun Facts and Questions for Friday: 

Fact:  I'm a bit obsessed with matching my workout attire, even when I'm just working out at home and no one sees but the pups
Question:  Do you feel the need to coordinate your workout attire even if working out at home?

Fact:  I love Friday Happy Hours. I think they are a great way to end the work week, sit back and relax, and catch up with friends.
Question:  What's your favorite way to end the week?

  1. I love happy hours, especially in spring and summer when you can sit outside!

  2. Great questions:

    1) Of course I match my workout clothes even if only the felines are here to watch. What if the UPS man has something to deliver. ;)

    2) My favorite way to end the week is staying up late and/or dinner out with friends. Sometimes both especially when it is dinner al fresco and by the harbor is even better yet.

  3. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg today was one of those days where you could almost sit outside and pretend it was spring!

    Alicia @ Vegan Epicurean glad I'm not the only one to dress up for the pets!!! LOL. I love dining outdoors. I think that's the best part about summer!

  4. I do love to look super-cute at the gym but at home, I gravitate towards my ratty yoga pants that won't see the light of day outside of the house, just cuz they are super-comfy!

  5. Haha I have awful workout clothes! I need to get some cuter ones. I love going out for drinks after work, but mostly in the nicer weather. When its dark and cold as it is now, snuggling up with my husband, some wine, and maybe sushi takeout, and the knowledge we have nowhere to be in the am is just perfect!

  6. Jessica @ eatdrinkbreathesweat we are no longer related apparently LOL. I'd have pegged you for a must-match workout gal! LOL. Although, the comfies are certainly appealing.

    Hi Travel Eat Love ! Thanks so much for stopping by. Sushi take out and wine actually sounds like a fantastic Friday reward! Your "Be Mine, Valentines" salad sounds so yummy. I used beets on V-day too!

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.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?
