Finally A Shopping Day

Wednesday Workout
I want to first thank you all for your kind, generous comments about the pictures I posted yesterday. You know how to make a girl blush!

This morning started out much the same, with the exception of Jason heading out at 7:30 to watch the Blue Angels practice. I got up and ate on the balcony before heading down to the gym for a 30-minute run. I added in 6 HIIT intervals to help pass the time. I also did a couple of the combos from Kick, Punch and Crunch. Then I headed down to the beach. Jason was so sweet and took down the chairs and umbrellas on his way out so I could head down there before he got back.

Here are some pictures Jason took at the Blue Angels' practice.


Beach Time & Shopping Time
The oil was less prevalent today. But the beaches are very empty. It has a very ominous quality. There are reporters scattered about and men in orange "Oil Patrol" shirts riding around on 4-wheelers or walking in groups with large trash sacks.

We sat out until about 1:30 then we decided to get off the beach and actually leave the condo - shopping trip. It was hard opting to actually get dressed in real clothes, real shoes and to do hair and makeup. But I can't come down here and pass up a trip to the outlet mall in Foley, AL.

Sadly, I didn't find near the deals I'd hoped to find. Usually I load up on great bargains. Sigh...not this time. I did find a few items at Ann Taylor Factory and Banana Republic. Oh well, better for the pocket book. After we left the outlet mall we hit up a place in Orange Beach called The Wharf. There is a fun restaurant that we like to go to called Ginny Lane and there are some fun touristy shops. I found my sis another thank you gift too. I'll leave you with one non-beach picture to prove that we did actually get dressed in normal clothes ;-)

  5. You guys look so nice! I'm sorry you didn't find all that many great deals. At least you didn't end up completely empty handed.
    I am hoping they really get a stop to the oil spill. It just kills me.

  6. we have the 'snow birds' instead of blue angels.. but theyre pretty similar im assuming. they head right over top of our house and its so loud and exciting. everyone in the neighborhood (a.k.a the hood lol) heads to their windows or balconies. its so funny to see.

    thats such a gorgeous shirt- orange looks so great on u. a lot of people cant pull it off but it really makes u glow!!

  7. I love the blue angels! They were here a few months ago and I could hear them flying over our house. They were doing practice flights before the air show and they came right over the bridge I was on. They were sooo close!

    Ali

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?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
