A Weekend to Enjoy & Beats by Dr. Dre Winner

I guess first things first - I need to announce the winner of the Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones. Congrats Sarena! And thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. I will have another giveaway this week.


Saturday morning I was up early. That worked out fine though, because it meant I could meet up wiht Amy at 6:45 and get the run out of the way for the day. I had thought it was going to be sunny. I put on my shorts, top, hat and pulled out my sunglasses. I kept thinking that it seemed awfully dark for that time of the morning though. Hadn't we just taken a picture of the sunrise around 6:30 the day before?

Then, I stepped outside and realize it was raining. Huh? When did that happen. Talk about a complete change in the forecast. It was hovering around 48 degrees so then I worried I would end up cold because of the rain.

It was a tiny bit chilly for all of 5 minutes, then I was almost glad for the rain since I had worn a long-sleeved top, foolishly. Despite the gloomy skies, the trees were brilliant.



Amy and I got in a fantastic 9 miles together. She dropped off and I finished out another 2 miles solo for 11 miles total.

I got home, stretched, took a hot shower and make myself breakfast. Jason called (he was out of town) with some great news from the vet. They said Heath was doing much better, had his appetite back and I could pick him up.

I was so happy to see that little guy. When the tech brought him out the door to me, I squatted down to him and he jumped up and gave me the best hug. Everyone in the waiting room did the "ooohhh...aaahhhh, he's so cute" thing. Yep, he is ;-)

I got him home and rather than doing anything productive like I should have done, I sat my rear on the couch watching marathon episodes of Rehab Addict until my sister got to my house. Then it was off to lunch.

We went to a place called Ya Ya's Bistro. Amy met up with us as well. The food there is great and so is the atmosphere. But they really went above and beyond to accomodate for Sarah's gluten intolerance. I had asked if they by any chance had any gluten-free crackers to go with the hummus. They didn't, but they did have gluten free pizza dough that they graciously cooked up for her to use in lieu of pita bread.


I love restaurants that truly do try to take care of their customers. After lunch, we milled around the shopping center. We hit up DSW, sadly, we didn't find any sweet deals. Oh well, better on the pocket book that way.

Sarah and I made gluten free pizza for dinner and watched the Conjuring. We both like scary movies. I will say that I was a tad disappointed. It wasn't nearly as scary as everyone had made it out. Good, but not scary.

Sunday morning we went for a nice 4-mile walk before she had to leave. I spent some time on my bike trainer watching a movie. The weather was gorgeous, and quite comfortable. One great thing about fall in the South is that it can be November and 70 degrees out. And, I'm still getting roses too.


So, I didn't get much done this weekend other than enjoying time with my sister and friends. I read a little, watched way more tv than I ever normally do, and sat on my rear a lot as well. And, it was fantastic.

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
