  • Write a short post featuring the posts you chose - Put 5 nice images & links to the posts all in one place, along with a short description of each post.
  • On first Thursday of each month, publish your post, then visit The Lindsay’s Lean Green Bean and add your post to the linkup! The linkup is open for about a week!
1. Vacation Workout - Full-Body Resistance Band & Cardio Workout

Typically when I'm on vacation, I don't have access to weights. Resistance bands are fantastic for travel and allowing you to get in a good resistance workout even when you don't have dumbbells, barbells or machines. Plus, sometimes it's just fun to mix it up with something new.



2. Don't Apologize for Living

This post is all about remembering to live in the present, not blogging about life, not tweeting, facebooking, instagraming it, but living it. Even better, don't apologize for doing so. Don't apologize if you neglect your blog or blogging in general for a few days, a week, even a month.


3. Chipotle Maple Tofu Butternut Squash & Quinoa Salad 

Sometimes recipes are inspired by what you have on hand or even the weather. Butternut squash and maple may sound like fall or winter flavors, but this is one salad that works year-round.


4. Full-Body Tabata Strength Workout

I know I can get into a rut with my weight training. I thought it would be fun to create a weight workout tabata style for a fun, unique challenge.

5. Measuring Progress Without the Scale

I think far too often people get hung up on the number on the scale. But progress can be measured in so many other ways. The number on that scale never tells the whole picture, so it's important to learn to measure progress in other ways.

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

Hump Day and More Pineapples

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
