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!

  3. Thanks for the review of the travel workout. I was wondering what you would think of it.

    Another cute top, BTW. But I still prefer the orange one on you. ;-)

    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 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.












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. …
