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.

Too Cute for Words

Um...No Words

As you can see, there was a lot of goofing around ;-) Oh, and I must explain the pillow picture. Jason and a good friend of his always joke around about girls having slumber parties and pillow fights (insert inappropriate male humor). So, Jason my dear (and Brian if you ever read this), that's for you!

Recovery
Of course I had wanted to run today, typical Saturday workout. But it was another insanely windy day. I just didn't have it in me to find Mother Nature today or a late night. So, I ended up going with a workout I haven't done in many many months...Cathe's Step Blast. I did one of the premixes (35 minutes) then abs from the same disk.

I really had fun with this, probably because it's been so incredibly long since I've done a step workout. It was just fun doing something different, especially when not feeling up to too much more ;-)

After my workout, I got cleaned up and went by my fave running store to stock up on some more gel packets and a new, larger hand water bottle. My current one is only 10 oz, this one is 20, but still has a super comfy hand grip/strap.

My friend Cris (seen in the first picture above) asked me if I wanted to meet her, her hubby, and another friend for a late lunch at a place called Bar Louie. Um, yes, thank you very kindly for the invite. We ended up spending close to 3 hours there just chit chatting basically. All in all, a pretty nice day. The only thing that would have made it better is if my sis could have stayed up here with me longer.

Once again, I pretty much got nothing accomplished today as I had planned. I had a really lofty list today too. Oh well, there's always tomorrow right?

Workout Wednesday - Body Blaster Tabata

Happy Hump Day! I wanted to thank everyone for their comments on yesterday's post: Be Kinder to Your Body. Calories are Not the Enemy . It sounds like it resonated with many of you. Today I wanted to share a new workout with you. I've been working on interval workouts for some of my clients. I try to give them the most bang for their buck (time). I know that in an ideal world, we would all have time to do longer workouts. There would never be scheduling conflicts, sick husbands or kids, or sick us. In reality, workouts need to be effective and efficient. And they don't have to be lengthy to be effective and efficient either. There's no need to spend hours in a gym to get in a good workout. Interval workouts like HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) or tabata, or even interval running are great ways to get in a fantastic workout in a short amount of time and have many benefits. You can read more about Tabata workouts  here .

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain. I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena ), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation. And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles. Have any of you tr
