Fun Facts Friday - Stylish Blogger Award

Thankful Friday
TGIF my friends. Today is my rest day. I am happy to say that my IT band is not sore at all from my run or the weights yesterday. Definitely something to be super thankful about on this Friday. As I mentioned, my sis is coming up, so that's another reason to be thankful.

Tonight will be Pizza Friday. I picked up Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza mix for my sister based on recommendations from a few GF blogger friends. I'll be sure to let you guys know how it ranks compared to the Bisquick mix we used the last time.

Fun Facts Friday - Stylish Blogger Award

This morning I found out that I received a blogger award. Thank you so much Meghan @ Cooking. In. College! You're always such a sweetheart. The timing is perfect for Fun Facts Friday.

To accept this award there are 4 rules:
  1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award onto 2 bloggers you have recently discovered and think are fantastic.
  4.  Contact the bloggers you picked and let them know they won!

7 things about me
  1. I'm fairly short - 5'2".
  2. My thumbs have weird joints that pop in and out, meaning I can't bend them back like most people.
  3. While I no longer bite my nails, I have a horrible habit of picking at my cuticles, especially when nervous or anxious.
  4. When I was a kid, I hated having red hair.
  5. I think I'm a shopaholic.
  6. I hoard hard back books.
  7. As a side venture, I'd love to have a doggy bakery.

So here are 2 new(ish) blogs that I follow:
Joslyn @ Miss Fit Bliss
Erica @ Itzy's Kitchen

So, while I'm passing this on to two fabulous bloggers that I have recently discovered, I would love to hear a few fun facts about you. Anything fun you care to share???? Any new blogs you've recently discovered?

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.












Shoulders and Triceps Circuit Workout

While I'm on a roll for time-saving circuit workouts, I thought it'd be appropriate to share another upper body circuit that you can use in conjunction with the Biceps and Back Circuit.

This one is for Shoulders and Triceps with pushups to target chest.

As a caveat, after having my blood clot, I apparently have scar tissue that makes it uncomfortable to do heavy chest exercises like chest presses and flyes. The way this circuit is set up is that you have 3 exercises for each muscle group. So if you want a more complete chest workout, add in chest presses and chest flyes into the rotation. 


Please properly warm up for 5-10 minutes with dynamic moves like butt kicks, shoulder rolls, lunges and/or spin on stationary bike, walk on treadmill or elliptical.

This workout is done as a circuit meaning that you do one exercise then quickly move to the next with little to no rest. After completing all exercises, rest then repeat. I suggest doing this circuit 3-4 times depending on time, p…
