Fun Facts Friday - Totally Random & Fashion

I just want to say a very heartfelt thank you to all of you after yesterday's post. Your comments, support, friendship, inspiration means so much more than you can know. Thank you. And I do still hope you all come up with a list of things you like about yourself. I'd love to read them!

Since yesterday's post was pretty heavy, I thought I'd keep today's post really light. It is Fun Facts Friday after all right? I don't really have a theme, just totally off-the-wall random facts about me. 
  • I strategically plan my last bite of oatmeal. You have to have that perfect combo of fruit, peanut butter, oats for that last bite right?
  • I hate hate hate needles but want another tattoo. Crazy right?
  • I used to hate wine - what the hell was I thinking???
  • I could care less about chocolate, cakes, cupcakes. Give me a cookie though and I'm set.
  • I hate Ferris Wheels. 
  • Tailgaters make me irrationally angry. 
  • I'm always afraid I'm going to trip getting on and off escalators. 
  • I could spend a fortune (not even a small one) at Sephora. Love Bare Escentuals and Korres and the OPI for Sephora nail polish. Definitely a girly girl.
  • Today I sported the outfit I posted last week:
Top & cardigan - The Limited 
Jeans - Always Skinny from The Gap 
Shoes - Max Studio found at TJ Maxx
Bracelet - Charming Charlie's 

Your turn - tell me something totally random about yourself! The weirder, the better ;-)

Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • Rest day
  • Warm temps (still)
  • The fact that it's Friday
  • Going to the Little Rock Marathon Expo (I am still signed up after all)

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…

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym"
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently.

I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience. 

Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is rat…

Tex-Mex Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Pumped Up Workout
I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn.

So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12).
