Fun for Friday - Reoccurring Dreams



Let's talk dreams, and not the hopes and wishes for the future type, but those you have when sleeping. I mean, it's Fun for Friday after all right?

Do you have those weird dreams that keep reoccurring? Maybe not nightly, but often enough that you remember having them. They tend to be mostly the same, only slight variations perhaps.

Contact too large. As in it's like the size of my hand and I'm trying to squish it into my eye.

One leg longer than the other. Which is much different than one leg being shorter right?

Falling with stomach drop sensation. I hate hate hate that feeling.

Horror novel ideas. I have always had very horror-movie like dreams. Jason thinks I should write them down.

Racing a full-marathon dream. In this dream, I am getting lost on the course that becomes more like trail running and rock climbing or starting a race too late.

Late to a race. Short distance racing where I'm running late to the start and miss the start completely.

Can't find a classroom and have a test. I'm in college and trying to find a math class that I've not gone to the entire year. The worst part is that I know there's a test that day.

Forgotten locker combo. I don't ever remember being worried about my locker combo in high school, but apparently it's a big concern now.

Ok, your turn. What's an oddball dream that you have often?

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…
