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 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
