Fun Facts Friday - Resolutions vs Goals

Working Out on Friday
So today is supposed to be my rest day, but since I took the day off Wednesday, I packed my gym bag and took it with me to work. This meant I had no excuse to skip the workout. I worked through lunch so I could leave at 3 pm. This also helped prevent any excuses.

I hit the gym for a 10-minute warm up on the elliptical then back from STS Week 2 of Meso 3. This week the weights increase and the reps drop to 4x7.

Underhand rows
One-arm rows
Pullovers (in lieu of deadlifts)
One-arm horizontal rows

I added on low back extensions on the stability ball then finished off with 20 minutes on the elliptical.


Fun Facts Friday - Resolutions vs Goals
Tonight will be our typical Pizza and Pool Friday. It just makes meal planning so much easier on Friday evenings after a long work week. Now I know you all are asking, "So how does this fit in with Fun Facts Friday???" And it doesn't. Just chatting is all.

But since you all brought up Fun Facts Friday, I thought it would be fun to list out goals. I made a resolution this year (to live fuller) that I see as a way of living that will encompass goals, but is not a specific goal in and of itself. Diana @ The Chic Life did a post on resolutions vs goals. Are they the same? What's the difference? I see them as separate and that the resolution leads me to specific goals. But, I never really shared any specific goals of mine, so I thought I'd do that today (of course this is a short list).

  1. Start selling my dog treats (hello Etsy shop)
  2. Run a half marathon (March 6 baby)
  3. Clean out kitchen cabinets (thanks Candice for the reminder)
  4. Avoid the mall/shopping
  5. De-clutter(cabinets, closets, desk, life)
  6. Paint mini-home gym
  7. Save more money (see #4)
  8. Take clothes to resale shop
  9. Extra income for traveling (see #1, 4, and 8)
  10. Travel more - some of this is for work, the rest for fun (Philly, Cathe Road Trip, Seattle/Vancouver, Massachusetts, San Fran, Chicago)
  11. Learn to use my new smart phone (work in progress)
  12. Learn to take better photos
  13. Get back into scrapbooking 
  14. RELAX
So, what are some of your goals? Do you see resolutions as different than goals?

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. …
