Street to Sweat #PROOF

I thought I might do something fun today and show you my Street to Sweat clothes. And as you can tell, I take terrible self portraits.


Dress - Banana Republic
Cardigan - Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes - Madden Girl via DSW

Cap - Nike
Top - C9 Champion from Target
Shorts - C9 Champion from Target
Shoes - Brooks Ghost 3 (dead running shoes)

As you can see, I hit the gym for my workout today. I started with 20 minutes on the elliptical then got in back and shoulders and a very short tabata workout. I went with 3 sets of 8 reps unless noted.

SS#1
Underhand barbell row
Standing shoulder press

SS#2
Pullovers
Lateral raise

SS#3
Double-arm rows
Front raises

SS#4
Low back extensions - 10 reps
Incline rear delt flyes

For the tabata, I just chose 4 exercises that I repeated as a circuit twice through to give me 1 round. I repeated twice for a total of 10 minutes. You do each exercise 20 seconds followed by 10 second rest then move direction to the next exercise.

Kettlebell swings
Kettlebell summo squat with upright pull
Kettlebell figure 8's
Kettlebell swing into a squat and overhead press (general idea came from Lisa Balash, but I added the overhead press)

Rather than drag out the post when I don't really have any exciting recipe or meal to post, I'll end this now. I am planning to hit the grocery store this evening though. So back to regularly scheduled cooking soon! Which lately means grilling ;-)

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
