Sick is Not the Way to Start

Ok, last night I started feeling a little queasy. Uh oh, not good. A really bad stomach bug has been making the circuit recently. I not only hate to throw up, I REFUSE to throw up. I will do everything in my power to not get sick. So I was in bed and asleep by 8:15. I woke up in the wee hours with that "uh oh" feeling. So I just held still, very still. Anytime I moved I thought I was going to have to hit the bathroom running. Let's just say that I stayed in bed (with the exception of texting my boss that I wouldn't be making it to work) until 10:20 this morning. I absolutely did not want to eat or drink anything. I know that's bad and really needed something on my stomach, and tons of water. I forced down a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Note to self: Bad idea.

So, needless to say, today was a mandatory rest day. Totally throws off my workout schedule of course. But I'm trying to be realistic about it. Workout would equal throw up. Throw up is bad, so workout is bad (today anyway). There, done, rationalized (sort of).

I only managed to be awake for about 3 hours before falling back asleep. Dinner may not be happening at all. If it does, it'll be something like a protein shake just to get in some nutrients. So, with that said, I'm off to go back to bed. 

I hope everyone else is starting their week off on a better note!

  8. Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Just something about a stomach bug that seems so much worse than other illnesses I think. I've done nothing but sleep, sleep, and sleep some more.

    Vegan in the City thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you'll stick to my blog for some happier posts! ;-) By the way, your pancakes looks fab.

  9. So sorry to hear you are sick. There is a bug going around and I am keeping my distance from everyone who "might" be sick.
    Hope you feel better soon

  11. Nutritious Foodie there is a bad bug that's been going around here too. Several people in the office and friends have had it. Guess I just wasn't able to avoid it.

    Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian Definitely getting the rest!

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…

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. …

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym"
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently.

I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience. 

Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is rat…
