Last Day of Vacation

Last Workout
Last days of vacation can be so depressing to me. We did make the best of it though. I ran 25 minutes then did Cathe's Travel Fit. When you don't have access to weights, this workout is pretty good. It uses resistance bands with cardio blasts thrown in. It's made for those traveling so you don't need much space at all. While it's not one I'd do all the time, it's perfect for vacations or work travel (hence the name of course). I must say that I absolutely cannot wait to get home and get in a weight workout!

Last Day as Beach Bums
After the workouts, we hit the beach for our final day of beach bumming it. We had our toes in the sand for the majority of the day. There was still one place we had not been to yet. It's a place we try to always visit when here. It's just across the street from our condo - The Jelly Fish Bar. They serve sushi and have an extensive martini list. I'm not typically a martini drinker mind you, but some of these concoctions are pretty good. And, I am on vacation after all ;-)

We started with wakame and edamame. I had a Comb Jelly Martini and Jason had a Hendrik's Gin. I ordered some vegetable rolls and Jason got volcano rolls and something else that I can't attempt to spell and am too lazy to look up. Again...on vacation :-) We ordered one more round of drinks: Blue Jelly Martini and Perdido Paradise then called it quits. We wanted to spend the rest of the evening on our balcony. Here are a few pictures from the Jelly Fish Bar including the view.

Last Day is Pizza Friday (of course)
Since it is Pizza Friday, we will manage to make pizzas, make-shift pizzas anyway. I have some Flatout wraps left along with a smidge of spaghetti sauce, some veggies (zucchini, squash, eggplant, spinach), and cheese. So, we had Flatout Pizzas. Not quite the same as homemade wheat crust, but it'll do in a pinch on Pizza Friday. Sorry for the lack of pictures of the pizza, but I am posting early and enjoying the rest of the time left on the balcony. I know you all will completely understand.

Tomorrow I will be MA. We will head out early and it'll be a long day. I promise to be back on Sunday though and will start trying my best to catch up with all of your blog posts (you guys post a lot by the way LOL). Love everyone!

    Agree with Jo - super-impressed that you kept up your blogging while away AND that you didn't take a single rest day - you are definitely crazier than me, that's for sure. ;)

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 the

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
