Spin, Storms, Stir Fry

More Spinning
Today ended up being another spin day for me. It was super windy and muggy out (we have a major storm system heading in the evening), so it worked out nicely that I wasn't planning to run. Though, I was sort of putting off weights today.

It was a good class today, same old track, but good sweatfest nonetheless. Of course, the extreme humidity might have something to do with the excess sweat too ;-)

I was planning on getting up and running with my friend again in the morning. Really looking forward to it even though it meant getting up before sunlight. But, he had to back out (sigh). He ran today and is planning on doing an 8K Saturday morning (woohoo!!), so he needs to rest more than he needs to run.

I am absolutely ok with missing out on the run if it's for a good cause. Unfortunately, we'll be on the road Saturday morning so we can't be there to cheer him on (or run ourselves).

Storms & Stir Fry
It looks like we're in for a really bumpy ride tonight with the weather. It's still sunny out and we're already under watches. The mid-south and south are just getting beaten up this spring. I know there were deaths from tornadoes yesterday in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas. And we all know about the tragedy in Joplin, MO. It's so hard when places are being hit over and over again.

We've got major flooding already, and the constant heavy rains and storms are not helping at all. In fact, we found out that part of the route we usually take to Florida is close because it's under water. What always makes me nervous when the ground is saturated, is those large old trees coming down. And that's what we have all in our neighborhood. It seems we've all had some crazy weather starting with massive snow storms, flooding, unusually cold temps...How are you fairing in your area?

Since I couldn't cook out, and I'm still trying to use up any fresh foods, I went with stir fry. Actually, Jason suggested it. I balked at it, but then made it anyway. For some reason, it really didn't sound appetizing to me. But, it was fast and used up fresh broccoli and squash.
 

I can't really say this is a recipe at all. It's basically a refrigerator/freezer special. I even used a pre-made sauce that I doctored up just a little bit with some PB2. Oh, and of course some Sriracha chili sauce. Can't forget about that yummy goodness ;-)

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.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?
