Thoughts and Thanks

Today - well this week - I've had a lot on my mind. Too much really. Too many worries, frustrations, upsets. But I've also had things to be thankful for of course.

I thought I'd do a little Things I'm Thinking and Thankful For post today. Just sort of random, bear with me.

I'm thankful that I prepped the tofu for the Pho Jason made last night so that I could spend the needed time studying for my ISSA Personal Trainer Certification.
 

My head is going to explode from all the new information I'm having to learn with the personal trainer cert. I should have paid more attention during biology.

I've passed the first 2 quizzes, but I'm not sure how well I'll do with more written and detailed questions - insert one of the worries that's crept in.

I'm thankful that my boss is letting me work from home 2 days a week right now. It's helping me not feel so entirely fatigued - which is good since I've not been sleeping this week. It also makes it easier when I'm getting down.

I'm thankful that it's sunny today.

I'm thankful to have a rundate set with my running partner after work.

Will I ever not feel aches and pains with running - let alone the exhaustion I get right now. I want to just get out and run and not worry if my feet are going to hate me the next day or my piriformis is going to keep me up at night, or that I can't run the next half marathon.

I'm thankful that I can at least get out and run. Mentally necessary.

What are some of your thoughts or thanks for the day?

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.












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.


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 where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
