Fun For Friday - Idiosyncrasies


It's that time of week again! I don't know about you, but sometimes I find myself doing things that even I think are a little odd. I think we all have those little idiosyncrasies that make us unique. If you've been reading my blog for a long time, then you might recall that I've mentioned some of these before. So, I do apologize if I'm being repetitive. But, I thought that I'd share some simple, random idiosyncrasies I have.


  • I count. I'm not a math person, but I count, maybe it's a throwback to ballet days. But if I'm running sometimes I randomly start counting and there are certain hills that I count my steps to the top.
  • I'm an expired license spotter. Not as cool as a storm spotter/tracker mind you, but it's a gift I have, well for AR plates anyway. Here they alternate the expiring year with either read, blue, or yellow. So it's easy to spot an expired tag based on color ;-) Jason thinks I'm nuts by the way.
  • I hoard toilet paper. I like to have a minimum of 4 rolls in each bathroom, preferably more.
  • I hoard canned goods. Maybe I'm a hoarder at heart, but I want at least 2 of each of my staple items like 2 red beans, 2 chickpeas, 2 diced tomatoes, etc.
  • I always pull out toilet paper before actually "going" when I'm in a public restroom. This could be a smart thing of course. I definitely know if there's TP or not, so I'm not stuck hoping someone next to me will hand me some TP ;-)
  • I dislike doing dishes, but I'd rather wash by hand than unload the dishwasher. 
  • I'm lazy. I know you don't believe me, but I really am lazy at heart. Maybe that's why I just keep going, because if I stop, I might not get going again. Actually, I get bored really quickly, so that's really more likely the reason of not sitting still. 
  • I love to read, but haven't read a fiction book in a couple of months because I'm trying to make myself make use of my Kindle. But I'm very tactile and want to touch a book, hold the book in my hand and thumb through the pages before deciding if it's one I want to read. I feel totally lost trying to search for an e-book. 
  • Speaking of tactile, when I go into a clothing store, my fingers seek out the fabrics. I almost don't even realize that I'm gently rubbing the various fabrics between my fingers as I pass by the racks of clothing. 
  • I am always cold except when I'm working out or sleeping. When I'm sleeping, I would be very content with the air set at 60 degrees (or lower) and a fan blowing on me. I freeze Jason out at night. 
Ok, your turn!

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
