Hectic Hump Day & BBQ Tempeh & Portobello Sandwiches

Hectic Hump Day
Holy hump day. This day turned out to be a crazy busy day for me at work and then lots of Plan B's taking place. I had anticipated hitting spin after work with my friend (it was on my to-enjoy list). I had also anticipated getting my hair done (also on to-enjoy list).

What really happened was I had to reschedule my appointment and ended up hitting spin at lunch. Of course, the noon spin really helped me sort of regroup after a hectic, busy work morning. I am sure my boss was worried I might just go AWOL.

So, it really did kind of work out for the best that I was able to get my sweat on earlier rather than later. The only downfall is that I had planned on having time before spin class to get in back today. That'll just have to be moved to tomorrow or Friday though. I can be flexible...sometimes.


Hump Day Happy Hour (and Hubby cooking)
I typically don't go out on a school night ever. But today was the exception. I worked until 5 then ended up meeting my friend after work for a drink. She really wanted someone to talk to, and I needed to unwind in a big way. We met up at an Irish pub that we really enjoy. There was another group coming along at 6, but we met up a little after 5 and I just stayed for one drink.

Jason was nice enough to get dinner started for us. I had suggested maybe a tempeh BBQ with sweet potato fries. He put together sauteed onions, bell peppers, portobellos and tempeh with BBQ sauce for a BBQ Tempeh and Portobello Sandwich. Turned out so yummy. It was nice to come home after a hard day and have dinner going already too.

Oh, even better, we ate at the kitchen table again.

Daily To-Enjoy List
Well, last night Jason and I did eat at the kitchen table so I knocked that one off the list finally. But, we never got around to the movie. That's ok though. I'll just keep that one there for future to-enjoy moments. Today's additions were a little scattered, but they mostly got checked off.

Just like a to-do list, I can't expect every to-enjoy item to happen right? But, I am determined to make sure that I at least enjoy one of the things from my list. I'll also be happy to enjoy any unplanned to-enjoy moments as well ;-)
  • Movie with hubby (this will just be on-going)
  • Getting hair done (rescheduled)
  • Spin with friend (hit spin at different time, sans friend)
  • Happy hour with my friend (unplanned treat)

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

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
