Fun For Friday - Confession Time


It's (finally) that day of the week again - Fun For Friday. It's been a LONG week, ok, it's been the same number of days as always, but it's felt long. Work has been busy and then there's that whole waking up at 5 am to run thing plus getting in my weight workouts either at lunch or after work.

So, I'm pretty tired by Friday. I did manage to get in one last early morning run today. It was one of those times when you do question your sanity though. The windchill was 22 degrees and the winds were crazy, gusting at 28 mph from the northwest. You never realize how often your route goes north or west until the wind is that direction.

Despite the weather, it was still a good run. The moon, in case you missed it, was simply amazing. I'm glad that we had clear skies so we could enjoy the glow, especially on streets that for whatever reason don't have the street lights on. What's up with that?

Anyway ... I've done a few Runfession posts, but thought today I'd ramble about something other than running or working out. I'm going to do some plain old confessions.

1.  I did not watch the Golden Globes (that was the award show this week right?), nor do I ever watch any award shows.

2.  I've never seen half of the shows everyone raves about like Breaking Bad (as one example).

3.  I've been using my new Kindle Fire to play Sudoku more than I've been using it to read.

4.  I keep seeing recipes floating around using coconut flour. I've never tried it and almost feel like it's another fad. Please chime in on this one!

5.  I'm supremely jealous of everyone who has Monday off. Please stop bragging.

6.  I've only ever watched American Idol for the tail end of one season. It was when Kris Allen was on. He's an Arkansas Native and his mom works for my company. I felt sort of obligated.

7.  I eat the same breakfast Monday through Friday. If I were to run out of a component to that breakfast, it would likely, no it would, throw me into a total tailspin (I know this because it has happened). 
8. I ran one extra mile this morning to round out the miles to an even 30 rather than 29.

Ok, your turn. Give me a confession!

  1. Don't worry about the coconut flour. You really don't need it if you have Allmond meal. It's more for people who can't have nuts. But it's always great to try. You know?

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…

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.


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 where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

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.
