Pin Pin Pin It Party


Party! Did someone say Party?? It's a Pin it Party and I'm all about that. I might be addicted to Pinterest.  I mean, where else can you be inspired to shop, cook and decorate all in one place?

Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean is hosting another Pin It Party. Basically, the idea is that everyone highlights 5 posts that they think are pin-worthy and worth a second look. If you like it, you pin it! It's a fun way to also look back at posts and remember recipes or workouts you might have forgotten about.

1. Biceps Triceps Superset Plus Bonus Burn



I've enjoyed doing this workout a few times now, so I thought it was a good one to share again. It's a great time-saver workout, but also includes a great bonus burn to really burn out the muscles at the end of the workout. Everyone loves that right?

2. Calories are Not The Enemy


This is one post that I definitely think needs to be revisited. Calories are not immediate fat cells. Calories are fuel for our bodies, fuel for our workouts.

3. Benefits of Working Out with a Spouse or Friends


Sometimes it can be hard to find motivation to work out, or workouts can feel like a chore. But if you buddy up with your bestie or hubby, that can really help make them more enjoyable and it holds you more accountable.

4. Greek Style Kale Couscous Salad


Looking for another way to use your kale? Check out this recipe. It's great for summer evenings or to take to potlucks.

5. Where We Would Run


I loved sharing my running route with everyone, so I thought I would share again. Maybe I can entice some of you to come visit and run for real.

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

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. Banana Nut Biscotti with Banana Glaze 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 wher

KIND Bar Review + Apple Raisin Wheat Berry Salad

Weights & Step As much as I wanted to run today, I knew there was no getting up early enough to do so. Monday's are hard enough without getting up at 5 am to run. Yawn ... So, today I did my weights at lunch then cardio after work. Weights were pull muscles (biceps and back). I did 3 sets of 8 reps of the following: Biceps : Alternating curls Cross-body curls Zottoman curls Back: Single-arm horizontal row Underhand DB rows Double arm rows It was a pretty good workout. I felt pretty strong today for some reason. Love it when that happens. My legs were pretty sore from yesterday's workout, so I opted for a lower intensity cardio: Cathe's Low Impact Circuit - Cardio Only Premix plus abs. It was a great workout and helped to loosen up my legs. KIND Review I have been very remiss with my review of the KIND bars that I won from Jill @ My So Called Health LIfe . I won the Nut Delight. I don't know why, but I expected it to be a tad softer
