Not So Fun Facts Friday

Fun Friday?
Rest day at last. I am definitely enjoying the day of rest. However, my morning certainly made me think twice about throwing in a boxing or kickboxing DVD.

I went out to start my car to let it warm up at about 6:30. Heath was finishing eating and Maddie was outside going potty (she inhales her food in seconds). I hear gears grinding and tires squealing, so I rushed to the back door already knowing what to expect - my car had been stolen. Yep, gone. Thankfully there was nothing of any value in there. It's a convertible, so I never keep anything in there that would tempt someone to try to break in.

I called the cops and all that fun stuff. Oh, something of value....my keys. To the house, pass to the gym, AND keys to get into my office are now gone. So how does the morning get better? I have to climb the wall to get into my office - it's sort of a cubicle, but the "walls" are higher than most cubes, but they don't go to the ceiling. Thankfully no one else was in the office yet to see me scaling the wall.

Oh and the day gets better of course. It started snowing, really snowing. As of yesterday, they were only calling for trace amounts up to maybe 1 inch. I didn't wear rain boots, I had on cute tall boots with heels. I was also going to hit up the grocery store at lunch because we're seriously low in the food department.

So to set it up in terms of "Fun" Facts, here is how my day went down:
  • My car was stolen
  • Had to climb up on cabinets then over a wall to get into office (thankful no one was there to see)
  • Snowed so everyone left work early
  • Snow also meant no grocery trip as planned (or maybe it was the no car)
  • I couldn't leave work as I had no car and had to wait for Jason
  • Paid $100 to change locks on the house
  • Didn't wear appropriate shoes and forgot a hat or umbrella 
But, I shall try to find the humor or positives: 
  • Scaling walls of office cube is kind of funny, especially in knee-high, high-heeled boots. In retrospect I should have removed the boots first. 
  • It's amazing how high it seemed at the ceiling looking down; I started to panic a bit. 
  • The snow was pretty at least. 
  • I did finally get to go home a little after 12pm when we had to meet the locksmith. 
  • I also have some amazing blog friends who checked in on me. Love you guys!!
 Here are a couple of pictures from our conference room window (10th floor) taken around 11 am. The roads don't look terrible, but they were starting to get slushy. It was really the bridges and overpasses that were causing the biggest traffic issues.
 

The snow stopped briefly only to start coming down hard again. It's supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow though, so it'll all be gone thankfully.

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 the

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym" As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently. I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience.  Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is r

Tex-Mex Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Pumped Up Workout I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go. I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn. So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12). SS#1 Alternating bicep curls Double-arm overhead triceps exte
