One can dream …

Last night, I actually dreamed that I had free time. I was very disappointed when I woke up! So I dragged myself out of bed for a loop around the park. That almost felt like free time because I got to watch the sun rise over the lake as I ran by. Stats: 4 miles, 42 minutes, 333 calories, 146 average hr, 162 max.

Breakfast preview:


I got home and did the 20-minute Gentle Hatha #1 from . And then I ate:


All the talk on Carrots ‘N’ Cake yesterday about overnight oats got me thinking about another one of my favorites: overnight Kashi GoLean Crunch! Before I went to bed last night, I mixed 1/4 cup of the crunch with 1/2 cup yogurt and a chopped date. I was looking forward to it all through my run this morning. I added 1/3 chopped apple for crunch and a sprinkle of cinnamon because I can’t live without it:


I didn’t heat the overnight crunch because I didn’t want to kill off the good bacteria in the yogurt. So for heat and more crunch, I had 1/3 toasted seedy bagel with 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 chopped date, and a sprinkle of cinnamon (again, because i can’t live without it):


Mmmm, I love peanut butter in the mornings.

I don’t quite know what the rest of the day will be like. Class until 1:00 followed by a mandatory workshop about who knows what at Hunter. They would only give the start time for the workshop — can you believe it?? End time is not available. All I know is that it will be “longer than 2 hours.” SO inconsiderate. I’m packing lunch and snacks, so we’ll see what happens with those later.

Do you dream when you sleep? And do you ever dream about things that are so close to being possible that you think they’re real … until you wake up? What’s the best trick a dream has played on you?

    I have dreams where I’m running and then take off into the air. so disappointing when I wake up!

    Overnight cereal sounds yummy! And cutting a bagel into 1/3s is a good idea — a whole bagel is too much and half isn’t enough!

    Is it still dark out when you run outside in the morning? Do you feel safe? I dreamed last night that I was kidnapped and not allowed to leave some house that I made up in my dream. So strange!

    Wow, that is a great breakfast! If I dream, I don’t remember them. I’ve heard you should keep a dream journal and write them down as soon as you wake up.

    Love your breakfast what a fun idea!
    I had a dream once where my boyfriend was dating my best friend behind my back it felt so real, I woke up crying and, accused him of dating her. It was awful but looking back it was so funny that I didn’t realize it wasn’t a dream.

    Breakfast really isn’t the same without p.b. And overnight Kashi crunch IS fabulous- I discovered that accidentally actually. One time I had a dream that I got a pair of Manolo Blahniks. May-juh disappointment in the morning when I slipped on my Pumas.

    I had a dream not too long ago that my fiance and I had a daughter named Harriett. I’ve never been interested in the name Harriett, nor are we planning children for at LEAST a couple years!
