Just Another (Birth) Day

Last night was a bumpy one here with severe thunderstorms all night long. It looked like a never-ending strobe light with thunder that rattled the house. Poor Heath man looked like he was about to come unglued when I went down to feed them this morning. He just can't handle storms.

Luckily it had stopped with the thunder around that time so he actually ate his breakfast. If it's storming, he won't even eat. However, it was not an easy task getting out the door. He wedged himself up against it and wouldn't budge. Thirty pounds of dead weight is really darn heavy I might add.

I had my gym bag and lunch bag in hand along with umbrella so I had to try to scootch his rear into the kitchen. Kind of funny, kind of sad. Poor little guy.

Anyway, It was pretty much rain all day here, lots of flooding going on. So happy I have rainboots and that I don't have a far commute. It was definitely not a run day for me to say the least. As has been fairly typical of Mondays, though, I hit up spin class.

It was a good class. Our instructor was sick, but was a trooper and stuck it out with us. I have no idea how because it's not easy to take when you're feeling bad let alone teach. But you think, if she can do it, I had better be putting my heart into it. So, butt kicked. And what better way to celebrate one's birthday than hitting the gym for an awesome workout right? Some people want cake, I want a good sweatfest.

Oh, yes, today happens to be my birthday...I don't really make a big deal about it because it's typically just another day. It falls close to a holiday when everyone is busy and it almost always is celebrated with family on Thanksgiving. So, not terribly exciting stuff going down.

Originally I had planned to make myself a birthday dinner Saturday or Sunday night, but that never happened. I thought I might make that dish tonight, but I ended up using up the tofu I was going to use in last night's dinner (roasted veggie & tofu salad). I also didn't make the polenta I was planning to use. Oh, and I am out of spinach as I used that up in the salad last night.

So, dinner is TBD at this moment. And, I realize this is a short, random, wandering post really. But, as a gift to myself, I'm going to log off for the evening and at least enjoy a movie with Jason. We rented Horrible Bosses since I got a RedBox freebie for my birthday. We thought something silly and funny would be ideal on this stormy Monday.

Hopefully I'll have a great new recipe to post tomorrow. And is Thanksgiving really in 3 days????


Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • Spin class
  • Movie with Jason
  • Relaxing on the couch

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
