Fun Facts Friday - Tagged Answers

Early Morning Workouts
I had another crappy night of sleep last night. I woke up at 3:30 and never went back to sleep. I finally got out of bed at 5:15 and got my workouts done. Because yesterday's workout was such a doozy, I decided to keep today's short and fairly easy (not that this weight set up was exactly a cake walk).

Today was back done at 90% of 1RM doing 4 sets of 6 reps.

Underhand rows
Single-arm rows
Pullovers
Single-arm horizontal rows

I added in low back extensions on the stability ball and finished off with two combos from Cathe's MMA Boxing. Very glad to have the workouts done for the day.

Sister's Surgery Update
And, after the blizzard-like snow we had yesterday, it all melted and dried up by around 5-ish. Yep, not a sign that there was ever that much snow other than an iced-over car this morning. While I love my house, I do not love that we don't have covered parking. It took forever to de-ice. Actually, it took a while just to break into my car. The door was frozen shut. Good times at 6:40 am and 22 degrees! But, no ice on the roads meant Sarah's surgery was still on.

I spent the better part of the morning a bit distracted, thinking about my sister. She was there by 6:30 and they took her back for prep right away. The surgery didn't start until just after 9 though. Both my parents were able to be there with her at least.

Everything went as planned. I knew the surgery would go smoothly, but it's just the sitting and waiting that sucks. And she's my baby sister so I'm going to worry, period. I wanted to thank you all for your prayers and positive vibes. Very much appreciated. Now I'm just hoping for a super speedy, no complications recovery.

Fun Facts Friday - I Was Tagged
Now, moving along to something more fun - Fun Facts Friday. Several weeks ago my friend
Jessica tagged me in a post to answer some questions. I wanted to take advantage of the questions for Fun Facts Friday (you know, so I didn't have to come up with anything on my own). Sorry for the delay Jess, but you do still kind of owe me a post too ;-) But here you go:
  1. How many days a week do you workout? 6, always taking 1 rest day. I prefer to take it on Friday, but if I need it sooner, I take it (though sometimes begrudgingly).
  2. What is your favorite ab move? This is tough because I love to work abs - maybe pikes on the ball.
  3. If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be? Um, Johnny Depp
  4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? A beach, just give me a beach house please!
  5. What is your favorite beauty product you can’t go a day without? Moisturizer and mascara...and chapstick.
  6. Do you have any pets?  If so what kind?  If you don’t what animal would you love to have? I have 2 crazy Cocker Spaniels (Maddie and Heath), both are rescues.
  7. If you could only eat one food for the rest of you life, what would it be? Pizza
  8. What does your family and friends think about your blog? I don't know that my family really gets the whole blog thing at all. As for friends, I know some of them read it and think it's pretty cool. They all seem to be ok with me taking pics of them and food all the time at least ;-)
  9. What is one sport you haven’t tried, but would love to get involved in? Not sure, don't really see myself as one into sports.
  10. Red wine or white wine? Both...it just depends on what I'm eating. I prefer white wine if I for some strange reason have a drink at lunch (like on a weekend) or during the summer. Typically I prefer reds now.
  11. (Bonus question) What is your favorite workout memory? Going to have to go with the Cathe Road Trip in July 2010.
Your turn - answer at least one of the questions, more if you're so inclined!

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. …
