NYE Recap & Back to Normal

NYE Recap
Last night was a great one. Not only did we ring in a new year, it was spent with my husband, my sister, and good friends. Here are just a few pictures to recap.











Workout & Back to Normal
This morning I was hoping to sleep in as we didn't get to bed until about 1 am. Usually if I a up at that time, it's getting out of bed to go pee LOL. But, sleeping in just didn't happen for me. I started waking up a bit after 5 and finally gave up and got up just after 8.

While it was another beautiful, sunny day, running was not the workout plan. Instead, we hit the gym for our first workout of the year. I did about 15 minutes on the elliptical to warm up before doing trisets of 3x8 (unless noted) for shoulders, biceps, hamstrings and then some abs at the end.

TS#1
Arnold press
Barbell curls
Bulgarian deadlifts

TS#2
Front raise
Hammer curls
Step ups (with dumbbells)

TS#3
Lateral raise
Incline curls
Hamstring rollins on ball - 10 reps

After the workout, we met up with our friends for lunch then back home to take down all the Christmas decor. For me it's bittersweet in a way. It means the holidays are over, but then it's also nice to get things back to normal around the house. Other than the fact that we can't put the boxes back in the attic until the water heater is fixed...but that's beside the point.

I imagine the rest of the day will be a lazy one as I'm already in PJs. I am planning making a simple dinner that will include the necessary black-eyed peas and cabbage. It might just be a tradition for prosperity, but I can use all the luck I can get, so why not give it a shot right?

I hope everyone has had a great start to the New Year.

Daily To-Enjoy List:

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

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
