Fun for Friday - Least Favorite Commercials

Since I worked from home all of December, I got to see some really interesting tv commercials. I'll agree that some commercials can be cute or funny. But, I typically dislike commercials, and these take the cake.

It's not that the product is necessarily bad, it's the commercial. And with these, it's typically making it sound like you cannot possible function without them. I mean, how on earth have people been flipping pancakes or eggs all this time without this gadget? 

Here's my list of least favorite commercials (disclaimer, if you click on the links they often try to not let you close out. Hit the X button rather than hitting ok or anything like that please):

WaxVac - I mean really, who on earth puts a cotton swab in their ear and yells "Ouch!" that loudly?

Forever Lazy - These are like those PJs we wore as kids, the one-piece have to zip out to potty. Only these are more like Snuggies AND they proclaim easy access when you gotta go. Now, I might want a pair of these, I do like my jammies, but the commercial is so far fetched - a college male student studying in them? Right....

Perfect Pancake Maker - Now I agree, I don't flip pancakes all that well, but the way they make it sound, it's absolutely inconceivable to make a pancake without this contraption.

Ped Egg - Ok, it's just a flat out gross commercial. Even if I need my callouses removed, please do not show that to me on tv.

Forever Comfy Gel Cushion Seat Pads - What irks me about this is that they are touting you can sit all day without discomfort. That's fine and all, but people don't need to be sitting for hours upon hours period. Maybe we should be making chairs even more uncomfortable.

Ok, that's it for now. I could go on, but would love to hear from you guys. What are some of your least favorite commercials and why?

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

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together. I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog. Banana Nut Biscotti with Banana Glaze If we were to have coffee together ... I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely. Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town wher

KIND Bar Review + Apple Raisin Wheat Berry Salad

Weights & Step As much as I wanted to run today, I knew there was no getting up early enough to do so. Monday's are hard enough without getting up at 5 am to run. Yawn ... So, today I did my weights at lunch then cardio after work. Weights were pull muscles (biceps and back). I did 3 sets of 8 reps of the following: Biceps : Alternating curls Cross-body curls Zottoman curls Back: Single-arm horizontal row Underhand DB rows Double arm rows It was a pretty good workout. I felt pretty strong today for some reason. Love it when that happens. My legs were pretty sore from yesterday's workout, so I opted for a lower intensity cardio: Cathe's Low Impact Circuit - Cardio Only Premix plus abs. It was a great workout and helped to loosen up my legs. KIND Review I have been very remiss with my review of the KIND bars that I won from Jill @ My So Called Health LIfe . I won the Nut Delight. I don't know why, but I expected it to be a tad softer
