Gym, Errands & Lazy Sunday

Gym
I wish I could run 13 and 14 miles every day because despite how hard it is, I sure sleep like a log that night. I crashed out hard at 9 last night and slept until 8:20 this morning! I think I only got up twice during the night, which is like not getting up at all in my book.

It was a rainy, dreary start to the morning. No motivation at all. But, I needed to get myself to the gym and just get moving. Jason actually went with me. Huge shocker. He did his thing and I did mine, but it was still nice having him up there with me.

I started with 15 minutes on the elliptical. Surprisingly, my legs are not sore at all after yesterday's 14-miler. The only thing hurting is still my sciatica. Anyway, I did the elliptical then hit the weights for shoulders and biceps. I did supersets of 3x8 and finished with some ab work.

SS#1
Standing shoulder press
Alternating bicep curls

SS#2
Lateral raise
Hammer curls

SS#3
Front raise - pull into chest (not a clue what these are called)
Cross-body curls

I really felt the shoulders today and have a feeling the biceps will be talking back to me tomorrow.

Errands & Lazy Afternoon
After the gym, we made a quick grocery store trip, then back home. We should have behaved and made lunch at the house, but, we didn't. It was gray and yuck out and it just seemed like a better idea to get out of the house instead. So, we hit up Vino's for pizza (re-carbing from yesterday right??). Oh I did get to meet my friend Jenny's (from Vegan and So Forth) sister. That was kind of cool - too bad Jenny wasn't there though (ahem we need to have lunch again!).

Jason wanted to hit up Target after lunch. I did not. So, he was the good guy and went to Target while I washed more laundry and made some seitan. Oh, and painted my nails too. I have been seeing some gray nails on Pinterest and had it in my head that I "had" to find gray polish. I found some O.P.I. for Sephora on Friday (Break a Leg Warmer) and finally had time to redo my nails today. LOVE IT.

While Jason was at Target, he also picked up the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie. He knows how much I love Johnny Depp ;-) So, that's our Sunday in a nutshell: workout, errands, lunch, movie time. Might not be super exciting, but definitely enjoyable.


Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • Relaxing lunch
  • Time in the kitchen
  • Painting nails
  • Watching movie with hubby
  • Being in PJs by 3:30

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?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
