Fun Facts Friday - Kreativ Blogger Award

The other day, the beautiful Kalli from Fit and Forty Something gave me a Kreativ Blogger Award. I must say I really do feel honored and very appreciative.


With this award, I am supposed to share 7 things about myself, then of course pass the award along to some other fantastic bloggers (that's the hard part, choosing).
  1. I am someone who always feels that it's necessary to be doing something, but I am somehow still pretty darn lazy. My to-do list is out of control. 

  2. I have only had a manicure once. I have 2 certificates right now, but am too lazy to make an appointment. So, I paint my own nails. 

  3. I always think people with short hair are super sassy, confident, and outgoing. I, however, am really none of those things, yet I have super short hair. I think I keep my hair short as sort of a russe, to pretend I'm all of those things.

  4. I always worry that I'm going to say something really stupid, offensive, or inappropriate so I tend to keep my mouth shut. Trust me, it happens all the time. My sister and I joke that we have this problem of opening our mouths and letting the shit fall out.

  5. I think I have a shopping addiction. 

  6. I could go shoe shopping every day - see #5.

  7. I am hyper sensitive - not just emotionally, but when it comes to sounds, textures, you name it. The ceiling fan in our room started making a ticking noise (Jason doesn't believe me) so I refuse to turn it on now. But I have to have a box fan going to drown out other noises so I can sleep. Any odd noise, foul smell, or uncomfortable textures would be the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard to some. Blood pressure seriously skyrockets. 
I honestly struggled with trying to figure out who to pass this award to. I know that might sound silly, but seriously, I think everyone is worthy. You all take time to write blogs, to comment, to interact, to inspire. So I thought I'd choose a few categories and link to those.

Inspiration - Lindsay at Cotter Crunch

Amazing Foods - Kristina at SpaBettie

Newish (to me) - Samantha at Running and Cupcakes

Running - Kristin at StuftMama

While I couldn't list everyone, I really would love everyone to share at least one thing about themselves or share a blog link to someone you think deserves this award.

Daily To-Enjoy List:

  • Friday
  • Rest Day
  • Lunch with friend

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.












Shoulders and Triceps Circuit Workout

While I'm on a roll for time-saving circuit workouts, I thought it'd be appropriate to share another upper body circuit that you can use in conjunction with the Biceps and Back Circuit.

This one is for Shoulders and Triceps with pushups to target chest.

As a caveat, after having my blood clot, I apparently have scar tissue that makes it uncomfortable to do heavy chest exercises like chest presses and flyes. The way this circuit is set up is that you have 3 exercises for each muscle group. So if you want a more complete chest workout, add in chest presses and chest flyes into the rotation. 


Please properly warm up for 5-10 minutes with dynamic moves like butt kicks, shoulder rolls, lunges and/or spin on stationary bike, walk on treadmill or elliptical.

This workout is done as a circuit meaning that you do one exercise then quickly move to the next with little to no rest. After completing all exercises, rest then repeat. I suggest doing this circuit 3-4 times depending on time, p…
