More Pictures from Cathe Road Trip

To say that Saturday was a jam-packed, exercise-filled day would be a major understatement to say the very least. I am not sure I have ever been quite so exhausted but in a good way. The energy and enthusiasm from everyone - especially Cathe - just keeps you going. I cannot begin to describe what it's like to be working out WITH Cathe not just "to" Cathe. Even more amazing - all the other women (and 2 men) who were there for the same exact reason: love of and respect for Cathe.

It is an awesome thing to be surrounded by so many people who are enthusiastic about fitness and health. Not many people around me seem to know who Cathe is, so it's also soooo much fun to be around so many who know who she is and work out to the same DVDs.

I will totally admit being a bit star struck when I got to talk to her and have my pictures taken with her. But she is so incredibly down to earth and friendly. She's not just that way on the DVDs, she IS that way period. She is a tiny bundle of spunk. It is so obvious that she truly, 100 percent, appreciates every single person there. She made it a point to make sure to hug and speak with each person. And, cynics may think, "well duh, look how much money she makes off you guys buying DVDs, equipment, etc." No, she's very truly touched by everyone. Not sure how to really put it into words. The absolute icing on the cake was meeting Jessica and Jolene and getting to workout with them.

Here are a few more pictures. Right now we are in Philly trying to figure out where we might have dinner. And, for the record, I am beyond exhausted... Bedtime may come around 6pm (maybe sooner).

  5. So glad you had a fabulous time! Isn't is such a relief that she was down to Earth? One time I had to have lunch with a celebrity who is known to be a real brat and she was awesome. So easy to talk to.

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.
