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…

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…
