Fun Facts Friday - My 7 Links

Today is a much-needed rest day for me. I think part of why yesterday's workout kind of stunk (well, the running part) was because I was running low on steam. My legs are talking to me today as well, so a run would be out of the question and there isn't a spin class (which would be out of the question too actually). So, rest it is, and I'm going to enjoy it.

I had thought about doing a Fun Facts Friday post about the heat and knowing you're in the South when...kind of thing. But, last week I was tagged by three lovely ladies (Kris @ Spabettie Tracie @ Commit to Fit and Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun) to do a 7 Links post. I have put it off too long (been way overthinking it). So, for Fun Facts Friday - My 7 Links

The Goal
To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.

The Rules
1)     Blogger is nominated to take part

2)     Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
  • Your most beautiful post
  • Your most popular post
  • Your most controversial post
  • Your most helpful post
  • A post whose success surprised you
  • A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
  • The post that you are most proud of
3)     Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.

I must say, this was very difficult for me. I know I probably over-thought it of course. I rarely ever look at the analytics for my blog to be honest. I had no clue what post might have been most popular, the one I thought wasn't actually.

Then I started just skimming through posts. Wow, I don't really say much that's earth-shattering, insightful, or even that whitty. I just ramble on about my workouts and recipes. I do cook a lot I realized. I read so many inspiring blogs. So much wisdom and motivation. Now I wonder why you guys keep coming back LOL. Anyway, I did my best to follow through with this tag. Maybe you guys can fill in the blanks for me.

Most Beautiful Post

I chose my 10-year wedding anniversary post for this one - Fun Facts Friday - 10 Years Ago.

Most Popular
This one surprised me. It was just a recap of a day at the lake from last summer. Maybe it was the bikini shots ;-)

Most Controversial
Honestly clueless. Again, I rarely say anything that would rock the boat.

Most Helpful
I had a hard time trying to figure out what you guys might deem as a helpful post. I decided to go with the post about My Home Gym. It wasn't necessarily a popular post, but I thought it was helpful to show that you can indeed get good results working out at home.

Surprise Success
I think my Fun Facts Friday posts (especially based around running or ranting) are sort of a surprise success. I love love all the fun comments I get though!

Didn't get enough attention
I thought this one might have attracted more attention than it did - The History of Me - Why I Move - maybe it was because it was a lengthy post. And also the to-enjoy challenge.

Most proud

For me this is being proud of an accomplishment no so much the post itself. It was my post recapping my first half marathon.

So many of you have already been tagged, so rather than tag anyone, I would love for you to share a link to your blog for one of these categories.

Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • Rest day
  • Pizza Friday

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.












Reintroducing Myself

We'll begin with the basics. I'm Heather. I started this blog in 2009 with the intent of sharing my love of exercise and healthy eating (and a little bit of personal stuff of course). I blogged, and blogged and blogged my heart out. Every.Single.Day.

I forgot how to sit down to eat without a) typing it up in the blog and b) photographing it. We didn't have hot meals for quite some time I might add. I was doing it all wrong of course. But, at the time, I loved it. I loved sharing my ideas for healthy, tasty, vegetarian foods.

Blogging also gave me an outlet to share my passion for exercise - lifting weights, HIIT workouts, running, even following along to DVDs at home. It was probably one of the boosts I needed to finally pursue my quiet goal of becoming a certified personal trainer.

My blogging style began to shift. My focus was shifting. My desire was shifting. The less I blogged, the more time I had. The more I felt I could breathe. I wasn't comparing my food to othe…
