Fun For Friday - My 4th of July

I'm both glad and slightly annoyed that it's Friday. How is that you ask? Well, because we were off yesterday, today is sort of like Monday again. But, it's also Friday again. Talk about making your week all sorts of confusing right?

I won't even talk about how jealous I am of everyone who took the day off today. I hope they're enjoying the lake, pool, whatever they're up to. Yep, don't think about those of us at work while you're off playing....nope...not jealous ;-)

Since yesterday was a holiday, I thought it'd be appropriate to play off of that for Fun for Friday. We didn't do anything exciting. No parties or cookouts. I guess we were sort of lame. Of course, I knew I had to be getting up the next day.

So here's how our 4th went down:

Jason worked half a day

I woke up far earlier than I had wanted

At 6:15 am I was cleaning out cabinets because we are going to paint them

I found an old crockpot and texted Amy to see if she wanted it

Amy said she was heading out for a run - I said give me 10 mins

Sometimes ditching your rest day for an awesome run is acceptable

I still think we might laugh more than we should while running, but we had a great 6-mile run/chat

Since I was clearly not resting, I did shoulders and triceps

I spent about 20 minutes on my Triggerpoint Therapy kit while eating breakfast - multi-tasking

Had to make a trip to Home Depot and decided to take a spin through Whole Foods, I mean, why not?

I spent a solid 20 minutes looking at a variety of energy and protein bars - what is it about that section?

I found some new-to-me products: Field Roast Lentil & Sage and Wild Mushroom Deli Slices. Also picked up the new Daiya spread plus a few new bars: Oatmega and Health Warrior Chia Bar.



More cabinet clearing, including the tedious task of taking off handles plus laundry

1:30 pm and I felt I had earned myself some patio time

Reading on the patio for an hour then it was back to house work

By 6:30 I realized I had not planned ahead for having the kitchen completely cleared out in terms of dinner

I was in bed by 8:45.

How about you? Did you have a big blowout for the 4th of July?

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…

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

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.
