Fun for Friday - #MoveEatLive

Happy Friday! I've been a bit MIA this week where it comes to blogging. I guess I'm experiencing a bit of writer's block. I am also feeling a bit out of sorts as to where to take my blog these days.

I began the blog on a whim with no real knowledge of blogging - I didn't really even read many blogs at that time. I wrote about what I ate and my workouts each day. After two years of basically recording every.single.dinner I realized I had put silly pressure on myself to A) 365 days a year, B) record every dinner with a photo and often recipe, C) record every single workout, D) respond to every comment.

Slowly I started to allow myself to not post on the weekends (crazy talk right?). I stopped posting every dinner and every workout. Guess what? I still had my amazing friends showing up to read and comment. Phew.

Last year I passed my certifications to become a Personal Trainer and Running Coach. Since that time, I have tried to get a new business off the ground - Where's the Beach Fitness. Along the way, I realized that my ideas for blog posts were starting to change.

I want to share informative bits of info related to fitness and health. Yes, part of that is to drive my business, but it's also what I am passionate about. I'm also seeing a huge trend in blogs to be more about reviews, campaigns, information and less personal. So where does that leave me and my blog? I'm not exactly sure, but that's part of why I've been blogging less I suppose.

But I'm still here. I still read and comment on other blogs. I miss the interaction over here on my blog as well. So I'm not going away, just blogging when I have something more meaningful to say rather than just blogging to have a post going out. I hope you stick with me and I would love any feedback on types of posts, recipes, workouts, me blathering about my weekend ...

With all that being said, I will continue to be Moving.Eating.Living it up. So, for Fun for Friday, I thought I'd share what I've been up to this week.


Move

I've been running (shocker I know). I've gotten in some fairly speedy runs this week and am looking forward to slowing my roll for tomorrow's longer run. I've been doing my weight workouts during lunch. I just can't seem to muster the energy to lift in the morning, especially after a run. I prefer to let my body recover from a run before lifting - trying to separate the two. As cross-training, I will ride my bike. 

Eat

Our garden has been doing amazing this year and my dad and mother both sent me some fresh veggies from their respective gardens, so we've been eating a TON of veggies this week trying not to let anything go to waste. The grill is getting a lot of use.

Live

I've been trying to really relax and enjoy my weekends and evenings. Last weekend my sister was in town so I got to spend a lot of time with her, which I always enjoy. Weather permitting, I've been sitting out on my patio reading for a bit each evening as well. It's a great way to decompress and simply be.

What is your #Move.Eat.Live for the week?

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.












Reintroducing Myself

We'll begin with the basics. I'm Heather. I started this blog in 2009 with the intent of sharing my love of exercise and healthy eating (and a little bit of personal stuff of course). I blogged, and blogged and blogged my heart out. Every.Single.Day.

I forgot how to sit down to eat without a) typing it up in the blog and b) photographing it. We didn't have hot meals for quite some time I might add. I was doing it all wrong of course. But, at the time, I loved it. I loved sharing my ideas for healthy, tasty, vegetarian foods.

Blogging also gave me an outlet to share my passion for exercise - lifting weights, HIIT workouts, running, even following along to DVDs at home. It was probably one of the boosts I needed to finally pursue my quiet goal of becoming a certified personal trainer.

My blogging style began to shift. My focus was shifting. My desire was shifting. The less I blogged, the more time I had. The more I felt I could breathe. I wasn't comparing my food to othe…
