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 the

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
