Tasty Tuesday - Recipe Round Up

While I don't have a new recipe to share, I've been pinning plenty of them that have caught my eye or made me hungry. I thought I would share those with you.

What recipes have you been checking out lately? Have you made any of these?

Laura at Mommy Run Fast posted this fantastic looking Warm Lentil and Wheatberry Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apple recipe. I love wheatberries and the combination of the apples and sweet potatoes. So this one called out my name.


Amanda at Run to The Finish shared this tasty sounding recipe for this Slow Cooker BBQ Tofu and Slaw. Might not be pretty, but sometimes the best tasting dishes are those that look the worst. Though, this one doesn't look all that bad to me!



Heather at Better With Veggies posted this fantastic recipe for Vegan Kale Sausage Balls. Being a huge fan of kale, this one caught my eye.


Averie at Averie Cooks always has some amazing looking recipes. This is one I pinned a while back (Orange Ginger Tempeh and Brown Rice Salad with Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette) and need to make ASAP - along with one of her fantastic sounding bread recipes.


Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean reminded me that it's been way too long since I've made socca - really need to try out this recipe for this Sweet Potato Socca Crust.

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…

Tex-Mex Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Pumped Up Workout
I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn.

So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12).

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises
Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain.

I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation.

And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles.

Have any of you tried dry…
