The Dailies and the Dream

 

Well hello.

I’m not sure if my Mondays could be any longer.

Yesterday started bright, wait, not bright, DARK and early as I had to practice for my KettleWorx class. Memorizing choreography is just not my thing.

I’m more of a plan my class in the car on the way kind of gal.

I fit in a run on the treadmill afterwards to finish off the final episode of Sex and the City.

I kind of want to go to Paris someday. I’ve never been to Europe.

After my classes last night it was time to step it up and hit up the weights like a big girl. I’ve been skipping out on them and on my normal strength training routine lately and my body can tell.

I always start out my short gym routine with walking lunges.

Yeah, not a pretty picture at the end of a Monday. I even got a nice little blemish on my nose there. Lovely.

I only did a couple exercises, but made sure they were good ones. If your gym has a pull-up machine you must find it and try it. I didn’t take a picture because there were too many big dudes around, but I seriously love/hate that thing.

Here’s a picture from this website though of it.

I’ll try to get one of those big guys in the gym who never smile to video me using it next time. That should go over well I’m sure. Ha.

 

This morning I did a short. slow run. That was good enough for the day.

 

Speaking of the day, I’ve been thinking lately of all the things I’ve been eating or doing daily that I don’t write about. There might be less writing about daily happenings in the very near future because something’s gotta give, but here’s some things that have been happening daily around here.

Green drinks.

I’ve been making my own fizzy green drinks with these three ingredients plus some other fun stuff.

I bought the Amazing Grass Green SuperFood® Drink Powder as recommended by Coach Elizabeth. The original flavor here is not my favorite, but I have it it lemon lime and love that one. They have other flavors too on Vitacost I just noticed so next time I’ll stock up there.

My drink concoction:

Fresh grated ginger mixed with apple cider vinegar, a scoop of the green powder, a teaspoon of the plant minerals, fresh lemon juice and sparkling flavored water. Sometimes I add a little sweetener too. It all depends on my mood. Ha.

 

I’ve been getting into those Strong and KIND bars. Yesterday I tried the Thai Sweet Chili one in route to the gym and it did not disappoint.

My attempt at a protein muffin for the road this morning did though. It was one heck of a crumbly mess and not easy to eat at all.

It was darn tasty though probably because I added a little extra NuttZo to finish off the jar.

I eat at least a serving a day of this peanut free NuttZo. Probably more like 2 or 3. It’s embarrassing really how fast I go through these jars. Crunchy Power Fuel is my favorite and I’m about to have to use my own discount code (STUFT-15 for 15% off) to order some more from the NuttZo website.

 

Something else that I have at least a serving a day of is Vega protein powder. I love the Vega One vanilla chai not just because of the taste, but because it has some extra greens in there too. I just discovered though that they now have the Vega Sport protein powder in mocha flavor and that they have a tropical flavor of the protein and greens. Vega is my favorite!

Oh and I’m starting on the whole maca thing. Those chocolate bars are freaking awesome and when isn’t it fun to enjoy chocolate and know it has good health benefits for you, right? Here’s a little info about maca from the Vega website.

Oh, I almost forgot about my dream the other night.

I had this random dream and I was holding on to a bar really high up in the air. I would NOT let go. I was so scared. I was going to have to fall a really long way, but there were mats and everything at the bottom and I was supposed to not get hurt at all.

My hands were slipping and I had that panic feeling.

But I would NOT let go. I was too scared and didn’t trust that I wasn’t going to get hurt and was just not ready to take the long fall. I didn’t know what was going to happen if I did, but kind of knew I couldn’t hang on forever and it was inevitably going to happen. I just wasn’t ready and was holding on for dear life.

I don’t know exactly what happened in the dream. I kind of remember letting go right before I woke up, but I don’t remember the whole falling feeling, etc.

It was so weird.

What’s even weirder is that I feel like there are some things in my real life that I need to let go of, but I’m still holding on so tight. I know I need to let go, but I’m scared and just not ready.

Maybe it’s time to just “fall” in faith though.

Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but every once and awhile I have a dream that really makes me think.

Smile

 

Okay.

Off to work on taxes. Yep, that’s right. I still haven’t done them and it’s April tomorrow. I like a little pressure.

 

 

What have you been eating or doing daily?

Have you ever tried maca before? If so, did you feel a difference?

Have you ever had a dream that you felt told you something about what’s going on in your real life?

    I love Maca! With dealing with adreanal fatigue last year coffee was off the table. I drink “maccachino” which is a combo of maca, vanilla powder and cacao powder.i usually add extra maca powder to it. I find this helps stabilize me throughout the day.
    Dreams are strange. The scariest one I have is being chased. For me I haven’t found they correlate what’s happening in my current life.not that I can tell at least!!
    Keep doing what your doing! You keep active and that helps you get through your decision process.

    During xmas, Trevor sent me the XL xmas version of the maca bar… it lasted 1 whole minute! My mentor yoda and you have the same vega taste buds… uncanny… me, I’m a choco guy all the way. Energizer, hydrator, and accelerator… the holy trinity.

    I honestly can see how the stress in your life is felt in your posts Kristin.. We all have it so it is normal but not fun. HUGS!!!

    I so get the dream! What’s even weirder is that I feel like there are some things in my real life that I need to let go of, but I’m still holding on so tight. I know I need to let go, but I’m scared and just not ready. YUP – get it!!!

    I wish we could all run away from the stress but I have lived it my whole life.. just once it would be nice for none – right… 🙂
