Good Days

Gluten-Free Pizza Hit
Pizza Friday was a big success. Sarah has officially declared that Bob's Red Meal Gluten-Free Pizza mix trumps the Bisquick hands down. I made it using the flax egg option so it was loaded with omega goodness too. This mix does make a lot of crust, so we split it into two smaller pizzas baking it and freezing one so she can use later. Thanks so much to my readers who suggested this mix!!
We had a great night. We listened to music, played some pool, chit chatted and just had a nice evening. All the dogs got along great too - Sarah brought her ex's dog with her. Heath was so happy to have another playmate. Maddie, could have cared less.
 

Good Day
This morning we got up and just piddled around for a bit before deciding that it'd be wise to head out to the mall earlier rather than later. Sarah wanted to hit up New York and Company. Who am I to deny her this? We behaved ourselves actually and only made two stops: New York and Company and The Limited. Scored great deals at both stores. Mind you, you only shopped for ourselves, no Christmas gifts being bought. I had a rewards certificate at The Limited and ended up with a turtleneck sweater for $3.21!!! Love scoring sweet deals like that.

We also made our way to Whole Foods so she could pick up a few things she can't get in her city. Then it was back home.

I thought we were going to try to head to the river trails for a run, but she decided she wanted to take today as a rest day. I decided to head out for a lap (or 2) around my neighborhood. It was about 45 degrees, but sunny. I got geared up and had a fantastic, pain-free 3.5 mile run. I made sure to roll the IT band and stretch extra since this was the longest run I've been able to do. I also iced my knee just to be safe. I am feeling much more positive now about signing up for the Little Rock Half Marathon in March.

Tonight I'll make Chipotle Tempeh Chili for everyone to enjoy. I hope everyone is having a great day!

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.
