Fun For Friday - Words for Me

I'm not sure if this really qualifies as "fun" for Fun For Friday. But I'm going with it anyway.

This week, at my office, a decorated Valentine's Bag was attached to everyone's doorway and we were all given slips of paper. Directions were given to write a single word for each co-worker on the slips of paper then place them in the bags on the doorways.

We were supposed to write something positive, sweet to describe each person. Basically, just saying something nice about everyone for Valentine's Day.


Words I received:

  • Driven 
  • Efficient
  • Attractive 
  • Reliable 
  • Inspirational 
  • Disciplined 
  • Sensitive 
  • Driven
  • Fearless 
  • Hale 
  • Sedulous
  • Meticulous 
  • Disciplined
I'm sensing a theme here. Part of me was pleased with the descriptors. I do feel like I'm reliable, disciplined and even driven. I'm definitely a very grounded, sensible person. I won't deny that. But then I realized something was missing...fun, carefree, upbeat. 

Would my friends use these same words to describe me? Or my family? 

While I like the fact that I am seen as someone who's very reliable, I also want to be someone who's fun to be around. Who people want to be around. I want to smile and laugh more freely. Not be so concerned that I'm going to embarrass myself. Not so...careful. And I think that's the key word. I'm very very careful. 

This year my word was change. How do I change being so careful? Or does that change the essence of "me?" Can I be slightly less careful, slightly less calculated? But still be reliable and dependable? <---rambling div="" now="" sorry.="">

How do you think others would describe you - in a single word? Would your co-workers say something different than your friends? Would your friends say something different than your family even?

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
