Fun For Friday - Public Restroom Quirks

This might seem to be one of those randomly out of nowhere posts. I suppose it is. But, it is Fun For Friday so that's a-ok right?

Yesterday, while in the restroom at work, I started thinking of some of the odd quirks I have about public restrooms. Yes, I'm sure you're thinking I'm certifiable right now. But, I know some friends who even refuse to use them period.

I've noticed I have a certain pattern and that there is definitely a restroom etiquette that some people don't seem to understand. I guess they never got the memo. Now, if you're one of these people I list below, I promise I still love you!
 Public Restroom Quirks
  • I always try to go to the same stall (at work).
  • I'm pretty giddy when I can get to the restroom when a lid is still up because it means it's clean and no one else has used that toilet yet.
  • I will admit that sometimes I'm too lazy to hover. Gross, I know. 
  • I get really annoyed when someone tries to talk to me when I'm in the restroom. Let me pee quietly please and thank you. Friends are the only exception to this rule.
  • And do you really need to have a phone conversation while sitting on the pot? Do you really think the person on the other end of the phone wants to hear you or anyone else peeing? I'm thinking no.
  • I realize that some people just like to be neat and tidy, but when someone starts to wipe down the water off the entire counter top, I feel like it's a statement against me somehow. 
  • And while I get annoyed at people wiping down the sinks, I really get annoyed about people being so lazy as to not pick up their paper towels if they don't make the waste basket. I feel like that's just rude to the cleaning people.
  • I don't understand how and why some people don't flush the toilet and I won't use the toilet if it's dirty which is funny because I'll use a port-a-potty (though that's usually out of desperation).
  • If it's...um...stinky...please don't spray a shitton of fake florally spray to try to mask the stink. It just makes for a more disgusting fake flowered...um...stink.
Ok, your turn. Any restroom quirks? Do you talk on the phone on the pot?

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.












Reintroducing Myself

We'll begin with the basics. I'm Heather. I started this blog in 2009 with the intent of sharing my love of exercise and healthy eating (and a little bit of personal stuff of course). I blogged, and blogged and blogged my heart out. Every.Single.Day.

I forgot how to sit down to eat without a) typing it up in the blog and b) photographing it. We didn't have hot meals for quite some time I might add. I was doing it all wrong of course. But, at the time, I loved it. I loved sharing my ideas for healthy, tasty, vegetarian foods.

Blogging also gave me an outlet to share my passion for exercise - lifting weights, HIIT workouts, running, even following along to DVDs at home. It was probably one of the boosts I needed to finally pursue my quiet goal of becoming a certified personal trainer.

My blogging style began to shift. My focus was shifting. My desire was shifting. The less I blogged, the more time I had. The more I felt I could breathe. I wasn't comparing my food to othe…
