Fun Facts Friday - Things I Won't Forgo

I almost didn't post for Fun Facts Friday. I really couldn't think of anything random or fun for the day. That is, until I had a twitter convo with my friends Jess and Jo.

They're getting snowed in my Nemo and there was some mention of having plenty of wine on hand. And of course justification of drinking the wine while snowed in - all the way down to it having antioxidants and not wanting to get sick while snowed in.

That convo reminded me of a post. A while back, another blogger friend (Christine at Love Life Surf) had done a New Year's post about the things she wasn't changing for 2013.

So, put the two together and you have Fun Facts Friday - Things I Won't Forgo.

Wine - There was a time when I actually hated wine. Jason worked in a restaurant and we could go to big wine tastings and I snubbed my nose and stood at the champagne table. Man I missed out.

Pizza - Yes, I know it's a calorie, carb bomb. I do try to make it healthier by loading up on the veggies. At home I make my own wheat crust and we use Daiya. When we go out we do light on the cheese. That helps right?

Blue Moon - I don't drink a lot of beer now that I have wine in my life. But there is something so refreshing about a cold blue moon with orange wedge, especially after a long run.

Cheese Dip - Again, horrible for you. But I can't control myself. And I'm absolutely a-ok with a vegan version too. I have a few recipes that we've made many many times.

Peanut Butter - Thank goodness this one isn't just horrible for me. Of course, I might have a problem with portion control.

I can give up sodas (been easily a year or more since I've had one), don't care about cakes, ice cream doesn't live in the freezer, no bags of chocolate, even gave up my Cheetos years back. But the above items? My Achilles heel.

What are some things you won't forgo no matter how bad they might be for you?

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
