Husband Takes Over Kitchen

Way Way Off Running Plan
So today I thought I was going to hit the trails again for another fantastic outdoor run. The temps were perfect, but the wind was so out of control. Not even gusting 23 mph, just flat out 23 mph. Um, no thank you. I might be fairly crazy, but I'm not totally crazy (ok, that might be a lie).

Anyway, as much as I wanted to run outside, and as much as I wanted to attempt to semi-salvage this week's training plan (which is so completely out the window), I hit the gym instead. I started with 10 minutes on the elliptical to warm up and then hit the weights for shoulders and triceps. I started to go with supersets (very typical) but ended up doing trisets of 3x8 followed by 2 additional exercises:

TS#1
Shoulder press
Lateral raises
Rear delt press

Front raise open to side - 8

TS#2
Double-arm overhead triceps press
Lying triceps extensions
Double-arm kickbacks

Triceps dips - 16

After the weights I did some ab exercises before returning to the elliptical for 15 minutes.

Car Update & Kitchen Takeover
I haven't mentioned the car situation in a while. Still not found. We talked to the insurance company again today and if it's not found by next Thursday, then they will go ahead and file it as a total loss. In the meantime, they were going to get me into a rental car today. Well, that never happened.

So, two weeks later and we're still doing the one car rotation. It's not been too terrible, but I have to carefully plan any errands to make sure I can pick Jason up after work or that I have a car when I need it. We have started trying to look at what kind of car I may want to get. The thing is, both cars were paid off, and we had no intention of buying a new car for at least another year. I haven't been paying the slightest bit of attention to cars so I don't even know what I want. It's all very overwhelming to say the least.

Anyway, Jason had the car key (only one as the spare was on my key chain) so I had to meet him at his office to even get home after the gym. We got home and were sort of discussing dinner. He apparently is enjoying this whole kitchen takeover because that means he dictates what's for dinner. I was going to pull out leftover Vegan Lentil Bolognese, but he was set to run to the store to pick up a couple of things because he had his heart set on Italian "Beef" Sandwiches.
We topped with a vegan "cheese" that obviously didn't melt very well. But that's ok, they still tasted great.

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. …
