Fun Facts Friday - My Food and Fitness Wish List

Rest Day
Today is a rest day for me. I kind of wish I had planned it out better so that I could run today. The temperatures are supposed to be about 50 with sunshine. Sounds like outdoor running weather to me. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, but only 45, which probably means more like 40. It's ok, you guys in the north can totally chuckle at me for being such a weenie about the weather (Jess did you catch the word choice).

Since I didn't have any workout plans, I had extra time on my hands. During lunch we hit up Whole Foods finally. Been avoiding that one for a while because of major road construction in that direction. After work, the goal was to get a couple of Christmas gifts purchased, finally. I've been really putting this off because of driving in insane traffic.

So far, I've only ordered gifts for my niece and nephew from Amazon. All shopping should be so easy I believe.

My nephew has found this insane passion for cooking and helping his mom out in the kitchen. My niece would be crazy jealous if he got this apron set and she didn't. So they both got one (his is red and hers is pink). Love love easy shopping.

Some people like the shopping frenzy of the season. Are you a hands on shopper or is online the way to go?

Fun Facts Friday - Food & Fitness Wish List
Speaking of shopping, my family always asks what I might want for Christmas. I don't know why, but I always blank out until after the fact. Like after I've given some crazy list of things I just make up off the top of my head. For Fun Facts Friday, I thought it would be fun to share some of my top "wants" for food and fitness gifts.

Food
  • Mixing bowls - only have 2 plastic ones that are pretty old.
  • Mini-food processor - sometimes I used the food processor for 2 or more pieces to a dinner.
  • Cookbooks - not that I usually follow recipes, but I love getting new ideas.
  • Hand mixer - mine finally died. 
  • Gift card - to an online vegan store like Pangea or maybe Netrition that carries a variety of items.

Fitness
  • GPS gadget - like a Garmin perhaps.
  • More arm sleeves - seriously in love with my Saucony Arm Warmers/Sleeves.
  • Long-sleeved running top with thumb holes - I am obsessed with wanting one.
  • More long running pants - because I only have 2 pairs.
  • More running hats - because I always wear a hat to workout in.
  • Better sunglasses for running - mine were only about $19 and kind of hurt my nose.
  • Subscription - Oxygen or Muscle & Fitness Hers mags. 
What food and/or fitness item is on your holiday wish list? 

Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • Sunshine
  • Warmer temps
  • Rest day
  • The fact that it's 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.












    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.
