Fun Facts Friday - Traveling

Since I'm currently traveling, I thought a travel theme was appropriate for Fun Facts Friday. Brilliant idea right ;-)

I do enjoy traveling, but don't get to do so nearly as much as I'd really like. Somehow money and lack of time off seem to get in the way. Don't you just hate that?


  • I hate to fly, but I'll suck it up and even flew in a 4-seater piloted by a friend
Me on a 4-seater
  • I almost always over-pack, exception is the beach
  • I must hit the beach at least once a year
Perdido Key, FL

  • I hope to go to Italy one day
  • This is my first time to California
  • I've been on 2 cruises and I do get seasick by the way
  • Wine country is also on my list of places to visit
  • I have learned to try to go with the flow rather than over-plan
  • I do still try to stay active when I travel 
  • We always try to go to local restaurants vs chains
Karyn's Cooked in Chicago
  •  I love Seattle and Chicago, and Philly was pretty enjoyable as well I must add
Seattle
  • I've not been to many big cities other than those listed above (and Dallas, Atlanta, Houston)
  • I have a list of cities I want to see for fun and to meet blogger friends like Austin and Atlanta 

What are some of your favorite cities to visit or maybe some on your travel bucket list? Do you try to plan out your vacation activities or do you just wing it when you get there?

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

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
