Morning, lovelies. Last night, I had really strange nightmares. I had graphic dreams about being chased by a creeper and having to stab him over and over again in self-defense! He just wouldn’t die, either! And I called 911, but no one came. (But I saved Maggie and James).
I pride myself on my LACK of dreaming (I think it’s nice that my brain just shuts off), so it was highly unusual. When I dream something so vivid, I always think it MUST mean something. I think it means I’m tired and don’t want to go to work. Try as I might to "end" the work week, it doesn’t WON’T DIE! 🙂
I woke up with a start and stumbled to the kitchen for coffee — now, that’s a lifesaver! Plus banana oatmeal:
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: blueberries, almonds, brown sugar
10 Minute Strength Routine
I’m hoping I’ll be able to squeeze in a trip to the gym later, but I wanted to get my blood pumping this morning as well:
- 30 push-ups
- 100 bicycle crunches
- 20 reverse crunches
It was a great mini-sweat session.
I was thinking earlier about how HAPPY I am with a reduced exercise program. I don’t feel lazy or unfit at all, I actually feel MORE healthy. I think 20 – 25 miles a week was really running me into the ground. Waking up in the morning without knee pain is the best feeling in the world.
I just feel more balanced and calm than I ever have before. Sure, the first few weeks of my break from running was a mental and physical shock, but now that I’ve adjust to the change, it’s great!
Just goes to show you that change can be GOOD! 🙂
Do you dream? Do you think it’s your brain trying to tell you something or are you just filtering through the day’s BS?
