Dirty Vert

Saturday night I ran the Dirty Vert Race put on by Desert Dash with my friend Amelia. For this race you ran up Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City and then you zip-lined down. Sounds amazing, right? The zip-line was my attraction to the race because I am a bit clumsy,which means lots of falling during a trail race. Luckily, I didn't fall, although I did have scares where I tripped running next to a cliff and I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest.

 The route we chose was 3.35 miles and was completely up hill. We did finish just over an hour and then it was time to zip-line. Amelia is terrified of heights so she was freaking out the entire time and I didn't get nervous until I was strapped in. Once I was strapped in, I was shaking so much the metal was making noise that everyone could hear. It was completely dark so we couldn't see much but we the feeling of flying about 50 mph was incredible.

Meal Plan

Well it is the beginning of my work week which means grocery shopping. Here is what I have planned for the week. I am also going to start juicing so if I come across any really good recipes I will definitely  share them. I have really missed juicing and I need to start using the juicer more since it was such an investment. 

Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad

Enchilada Casserole

Avocado Bacon Quesadillas- my own recipe

For some reason I hate getting my hair cut. I am not sure where it stemmed from because I have never had a "bad haircut" (only poor choices on my end). I think I just hate being judged for the condition of my hair, so I put it off which makes my split ends worse and then I get even more concerned. I honestly think my dog gets groomed more than I do, and yes I don't really like taking her either. She just went to the groomer and look at the before and after pictures. She looks fabulous, especially with the bows in her hair.

Does anyone else hate getting their haircut?

Oh goodness.

To say things have been crazy around here would be an understatement. Here is what has been going on in my neck of the woods:
  • Received a promotion at work! Woot Woot!
  • Schedule change
  • Death in the family
  • Wedding Anniversary 
  • Another schedule change
  • Conquered Tough Mudder
  • Concerts
All of this has been within the last two weeks. Hopefully now that everything has settled down we can get back to regularly scheduled post! Until then here is a picture of Ryan and I at a concert on our anniversary.

Panic Attack

I have anxiety sometimes, not just like oh goodness a test is coming and I am nervous (although that is really bad) I feel like I have an elephant sitting on my chest and I can't move/breathe anxiety. I have had it all my life and the first anxiety issue I remember was when I was in the third grade. We had a state test we were practicing for that we had to take in order to graduate high school. Strange that they were prepping us in the third grade, yeah I don't agree either. Anyways I was so stressed out that I made myself sick and I missed two days of school and I wasn't able to take the test. I knew I was going to be a hobo for life after that. So far I proved my third grade self wrong.

Today I was almost in a car accident with my brand new car. I guess the guy didn't see me because I was in their blind spot and they drove off like nothing. I was super freaked out and really shaken. Tonight I thought I was fine but not anymore. You may think I would be on meds for my anxiety but I don't like to I have taken them once but I would rather be in charge of my feelings. I usually just take a shower and it relaxes me. Well it is time for a shower so I can breathe!
