Rooting for the Red Team

Rooting for the Red Team

This song Aloe Blacc has been in my brain since the holidays.

This song reminds me of Robin Thicke my Root Chakra.
Why you ask? Because I’m a weirdo.
 I carry my stress worry in my hips/lower back.
So, anytime I hear the word red as of late,
I’m subtly reminded to tend to that chakra.
Chakras are influenced by, of many things, color,
and the Root chakra likes red. So this year,
I am making a conscious effort to eat more red foods,
paint my toes red, drink way more red wine, and wear more red.

Absolutely.

Proof of my happy breakfast: I scrambled up some eggs with white cheddar,
and danced some turkey pastrami and crunchy red peppers.

I couldn’t sit for too long and daydream.
The kiddos go back to school Monday, and I had lots to do.

I got busy and washed & combed my girlies hair.
Folded clothes. Watered dying plants. Cleaned bathrooms.
Took a siesta. Just tried to get my mind house right.

Since I hadn’t lifted a finger weight since early December,
I opted for a quick session to get my muscles warmed up
and reminded this is how we do…

But I was feeling myself and just couldn’t stop running.

8 mile tempo run and arm workout for the winter!
Kept it under 11 minute miles and felt red great!

For recovery, I made a quick salad.
Romaine hearts, cherubs, feta and lots o’ leftover chicken
with my ranch and black gold, Texas tea so I wouldn’t
crash and burn after that long run!

Took a nice Epsom salt bubble bath
for these hard working muscles.
And now finishing up blogging about my day
with you awesome people.

Powering down, Hip Huggers!

Question: What’s your favorite color?
