Fun Facts Friday - Pet Peeves

Friday Rambling
Oh we finally have some sunshine today. Sun + Friday + Rest Day = Great Day. Now if only I had been off work, oh the possibilities. Oh well, can't have it all right?

It always feels a bit odd to post on Fridays when I don't have a workout or recipe to share. I know that's not the only reason you all read of course, but you do get used to a format. I really don't feel like I have any spectacular insights today either. I'm sort of trying to talk myself off the proverbial ledge. I have to go to Dallas Sunday-Wednesday for work. Thankfully no flying is involved, but I just get stressed about my meals and not knowing if there will be any decent vegetarian options for me. Plus, plain and simple, I don't like to be away from home without the hubs. 

I don't know if the facility where we are attending the training has a break room or cafeteria (the contact has yet to reply back dang it). Anyway, the guys I'm going with are full-on meat eaters. Not thinking I can get them to hit up a vegetarian's dream like Spiral Diner (thanks Jenny for the suggestion).

I do plan on taking a cooler of food though. The guys let me pick the hotel, so I opted for one that had rooms with a fridge and microwave. Oh, and of course it has a gym. I'm really excited that this hotel actually has a fitness center with free weights - usually it's a machine or nothing at all. So, workouts will be on track if nothing else. We're staying near the Galleria Mall - so if any of you know of any great places to eat in that area, please please please share.

I know the advice from everyone will be to just relax and try to enjoy the trip. That's what I am going to try to do. I mean, who knows, maybe I'll stumble upon a great place to eat, plus we are close to a mall. So, maybe some shopping?

Fun Facts Friday - Pet Peeves
Some of you have noticed that I haven't been quite myself. I think we all go through lulls and rough patches though. We can't be sunshine and rainbows all the time right? Today's Fun Facts Friday was inspired by a recent post by Shannon @ The Daily Balance. It might sound a bit down - but it was a list of things she hates. Oh come on, we ALL have pet peeves and things that just get under our skins. So let's get real and vent a bit today with the Fun Facts Friday - Pet Peeves Addition.

1. Tailgaters - get off my freaking bumper. You make me want to slow down, not speed up. Besides, I am typically speeding myself so back the eff off. Especially if there is a car in front of me. Am I supposed to drive over them?

2. Office Manicures - coworkers, please stop trimming your nails at work. It's ok to repair a snagged or torn nail, but to sit and cut each and every nail once or twice a week???

3. Elevator Abusers
- folks, it's ok to exert some energy and take the stairs for a few flights. Please stop hogging the elevator to ride only one floor up or down (directed solely towards able-body individuals of course) when some of us have to get to the 10th floor. It really sucks to stop 9 times. 

4. Text Addicts
- please don't text while we're supposed to be having a conversation. To me, it's rude. It makes me feel like our conversation is unimportant. I think this is more of a generational thing. I see this more from my younger friends. I honestly don't think they see it as being rude at all. But I always try to give my full attention to the other persons or people I'm with.

Ok, I'm done. You're turn. What totally peeves you? Let it out.

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. …
