Food Should Taste Good - Pink for a Cure

Just a quick follow up regarding my fall yesterday, I ended up going to the doctor today because my knee is swollen. I just wanted to be sure nothing was torn or broken. Luckily, no broken or chipped bones.

He thinks it's just a really bad bruise causing the swelling plus the cuts/scrapes. If it doesn't start to improve in about a week or so, then he'll order an MRI to make sure that the meniscus isn't torn. So, for now, ice ice baby ... and ibuprophen ... and bandages.

Now let's talk about something that's cause worthy. The other day I came home to a box on my porch. I opened it up and this is what I found inside. YUM!


Chocolate doesn't tempt me, cakes and pies? Meh. But chips? Oh I love chips. And I love chips that are for a good cause.

Food Should Taste Good has a non-GMO commitment, chips are also gluten-free and all natural. Just check out their ingredient labels - you can actually read and identify the ingredients. How's that for a nice change? And a Sweet Potato chip? Yes please. I've not had any of there chips that I disliked. They have some very unique flavors too, like Olive, Kimchi, and even a Harvest Pumpkin. Yep, you read that correctly.

While I like trying out new flavors, this is more about a cause. This month, Food Should Taste Good is going pink with some of their chips in order to aid in the effort to fight breast cancer. They are donating $100,000 to Play for P.I.N.K. regardless of their sales of these pink bags of chips.

While chips aren't exactly the healthiest food on the planet, I do feel better about selecting chips that are made from whole ingredients, non-GMO AND supporting a very important cause, Breast Cancer Awareness.

Are you a chip fan? What's your favorite chip? 

Please note: Food Should Taste Good sent me these chips for free with only a simple request to spread the word in order to help raise money for breast cancer research. This post was written on my own accord.

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…
