Fun Facts Friday - Friendship

Today I hit the gym for upper body. Nothing terribly exciting. So rather than list out my workout for the day, I thought I'd jump right on into Fun Facts Friday.

I know I've talked about it before, but friendships are so incredibly important. And it's not how many friends you have that matter either, it's the quality of the friendship. And as hard as it may be to realize, not all friendships are meant to last, but some withstand the tests of time.
You meet friends in so many different ways as well. Sometimes, if you're lucky, it's your sister or brother. Some you meet the first day of pre-school or kindergarten. Maybe you meet in college. Sometimes it's a totally random meeting. And you can even find the best of friends through blogging. They don't all have to be IRL (in real life) to be special.


I am blessed to have my sister as my best friend. Not everyone is close to their siblings, I realize. I really cannot imagine having grown up without her.

And this guy, I am lucky that I met him by random chance. He's not only my husband, but my best friend and my soulmate. Pretty certain no one else would ever put up with me ;-)

I feel truly honored to have known this beautiful lady for about 33 years now. She's one of those beautiful souls that make the world a better place for just being around. And, she gives the best hugs ever.

Family members can make pretty darn good friends too. My cousin and I are only 7 months apart in age, so we basically grew up together. He's more of a brother to me than a cousin. Now if only he lived closer!

And it's truly wonderful when you meet an amazing couple that you and your husband both like. We met these fantastic friends by chance...well, sort of, lots of mutual friends. But we ended up being great friends. We pretty much hang out at least once with each other every weekend.

And then there are those blogger friends that become IRL friends. Again, so very honored to know this beautiful lady and receive her friendship and support. Now I just need a new picture with her sis too!

And then there are those friends we lose. Sometimes the friendships simply end, sometimes they are taken from this life too soon. But they are always with you either in your heart or in wonderful memories.

What are your thoughts on friends? To me, they are like family. Do you have friends you've known your whole life? How did you meet your best friend?

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

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
