It's A Pin It Party


Lindsay over at the Lean Green Bean is at it again with another Pin It Party! I didn't participate last time, but really enjoyed all fo the Pin It Party posts, so I decided to join in this round.


Here’s what you do:
  • Round up 5 blog posts you’ve written that you would like to see on Pinterest.
  • Make sure there is a nice, pinable image or photo included in each post.
  • Write a short post featuring the posts you chose - Put 5 nice images & links to the posts all in one place, along with a short description of each post.
  • On first Thursday of each month, publish your post, then visit The Lindsay’s Lean Green Bean and add your post to the linkup! The linkup is open for about a week!

I usually don't pin something FROM my blog unless it's a recipe or workout. I rather like the idea of pinning TO my blog though (if that makes sense). So pinning to a post not just a recipe or workout.


I've really enjoyed playing around on my bike trainer and putting together some workouts that keep things moving and are a little different from my normal workout routines.

2. Tasty Tuesday - Zucchini Lasagna with Tofu Ricotta 

This is a fairly simple, satisfying recipe that's vegan and gluten free.



3. Name Positivity 

Let's be positive! It's important that we remember to find things about ourselves that we do like.




4. I AM a Runner

I hope this post dispels a few misconceptions about runners, running and maybe encourages people to get out and run.



5. Heather's Eggplant Caponata

I think this recipe turned out so much better than I had even expected. It's great as a meal or even used as an appetizer.



Have you pinned anything from my blog before or tried any of these recipes or workouts? What types of things do you tend to pin? Me? Food, fashion, home decor!

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

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym" As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently. I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience.  Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is r

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). SS#1 Alternating bicep curls Double-arm overhead triceps exte
