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.

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
