Fun Facts Friday - Sometimes

Wow, than you Friday for finally making an appearance. Show of hands if you thought it'd never show up too!

Rather than dwell on the crazy week that's now in the past, I thought I'd just jump right into Fun Facts Friday. Let's put the week behind us and have a little fun shall we?

I'm taking a cue from my friend Jessica. She did a post she called Sometimes (Revisited). Mine isn't exactly revisited, just a list of Sometimes.

Sometimes...

...these cuties really are as sweet as they appear here (the dogs not Jason).

...they can be rotten like coming into the kitchen to see Maddie polishing off a to-do style notepad with a magnetic strip on the back. Lip-smacking good apparently.

...they like to play the in-and-out game standing at the back door but going out only to randomly bark, repeat 5 times before they might actually potty.

...they love to get toilet paper or tissues and have both figured out how to push a basket under the coffee table back far enough to get into it to get to the box of tissues we have "hidden."

Sometimes...

...I really enjoy doing the cooking.

...I enjoy it even more when Jason steps in so I can have time to study or *gasp* do nothing.

Sometimes...

...I think I have it all figured out.

...I realize I don't and nowhere close.

...I want to run and it turns out to be less than stellar.

...I don't really want to run and it's the best thing ever.

...I'm too lazy to play pool on the pool table in my own house. That can be a lot of effort you know.

Sometimes...

...I'm amazed still that I have run 4 half marathons. Especially considering I never thought I could run more than a mile period.

...It's not a matter of time, it's a matter of who you crossed the finish line with.
...I smile for no reason.


What are some of your "sometimes?"

  1. What a cute post!
    Your doggies are just so darling!
    I love when Tony cooks too. It's so nice having someone help out when you feel like being a bum. ;)

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.












Shoulders and Triceps Circuit Workout

While I'm on a roll for time-saving circuit workouts, I thought it'd be appropriate to share another upper body circuit that you can use in conjunction with the Biceps and Back Circuit.

This one is for Shoulders and Triceps with pushups to target chest.

As a caveat, after having my blood clot, I apparently have scar tissue that makes it uncomfortable to do heavy chest exercises like chest presses and flyes. The way this circuit is set up is that you have 3 exercises for each muscle group. So if you want a more complete chest workout, add in chest presses and chest flyes into the rotation. 


Please properly warm up for 5-10 minutes with dynamic moves like butt kicks, shoulder rolls, lunges and/or spin on stationary bike, walk on treadmill or elliptical.

This workout is done as a circuit meaning that you do one exercise then quickly move to the next with little to no rest. After completing all exercises, rest then repeat. I suggest doing this circuit 3-4 times depending on time, p…
