I do not recommend blisters. I woke up this morning, put on my alternative pair of running shoes and OWWWWW. It was like a needle in my arch. I pretty much can’t put on any shoes with arch support 🙁
What to do!?
You might think this would have been a good time to crawl back in bed, but I was not going to let this blister stop me from some exercise since the rest of my body was fully functional and awake! I tried in a few pairs of squishy shoes and considered my options. Cycle class (those shoes have low arches) and …the Stairmaster! I determined by climbing my stairs that you climb on the ball of your foot and my blister was non-existent in this motion. (Next stop would have been a yoga podcast or upper body weights at the gym)
So I headed to the gym in my squishy Nike slip on shoes and did 35 minute on the Stairmaster! Highly recommended. I ended with a good set of weight lifting and headed home.
I would not recommend trying to pack for a trip, clean your house for sale, getting ready for work, breakfast, blogging and blister care all in one sweep. Still feeling rushed + stressed!
I do recommend overnight oats for mornings when you know you will be pressed for time!!
- 1/3 cup TJ’s Euro yogurt (greek is best, but any kind of yogurt works for overnight oats)
- 1/3 cup raw oatmeal
- 1/3 cup vanilla soy milk
- Pinch salt (always helps!)
- Half tbsp chia seeds
- Half banana
- Nuttzo sauce!!! (Nuttzo heated and stirred with soy milk) <—- Highly recommended!
- Crofter’s sauce!! (Crofter’s just heated so it melts a little) <—- Highly recommended!
- Galaxy Granola (CRUNCH!) <—- Highly recommended!
This morning I heated my bowl for 45 seconds to take off the chill. Otherwise, NO COOKING!
I do recommend spending the time to cook up some French press coffee!! Particularly some Creme Brulee Caftea!! HEAVENLY aroma!
You can get your own for $15 through tomorrow morning!!! 7 are bought – 19 more to make a deal at the Open Sky Group Shop.
If that’s my foot, then that ball of fire is my BLISTER!
Workin’ till noon then I’m headed to Charlottesville in the car of the famous Great Harvest CEO Mike! We’re having none other than GH sandwiches on the trip, so I’ll be visiting you guys via iPhone post after lunch.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Grandmother Younger, who turns 90 today!!!!
I also recommend doing the Friday Dance!!
