Thirty Minute Thursday & “Those” Moments

by lindsay cotter on October 4, 2012

Those moments. We all have them, and if you don’t, then you are not human.

You know what I’m talking about. Those moments where you feel like you’ve lost a significant amount of brain cells in just 5 minutes. Those moments where you question how you even function through out the day. LOL!

I had several yesterday. I would blame it on the fact that it was a WEIRD WEDNESDAY, but the whole day I thought it was Thursday. Hmmm…brain check.

Moment 1:

Walking into a room and thinking “why did I come in here again?”

Or publically professing my Brainlessness.. yes, that’s a word.

Capture

Moment 2:

Forgetting to charge my iPod for class and then forgetting my workout sheet that helps me structure class. Ugh. It’s still sitting on the breakfast table. Needless to say, I winged it. And it was that “winged” class that credited me back some brain cells. Phew!

wallclassCapture3

Repeat 2x if you’d like.

Moment 3:

You think it’s your “catch up” day. Meaning you actually shower and wash your hair, you do laundry, etc. Heck you might even feel ballsy and post 2 days in a row! Ya, I had that moment. I had every intention of posting a WIAW so that I could show off my gluten free burrito bowl skills.

burrito

That didn’t happen. Instead I had a few last minute Healthy Bite orders and other work to attend to. Good news is that I made a NEW Vegan Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly bite. I’m so excited that I might just share the recipe. Yes. Stay tuned!

The laundry is still there, yep. And the shower? Well that did happen, the washing of the hair did not. Whoops. #thankyoudryshampoo

Moment 4:

The “why did I buy this again?” moment.

afterfocus_1349367968718

Oh yes, a day later I remember. And that reason would be for a blog post. Duh.

I’ll be posting on uses of Kelp Powder soon and why it’s beneficial. Will somebody remind me?

Tell me, what “MOMENT” have you had lately? Somebody has to relate. Winking smile

Cheers,

LC

p.s.

Please head over to my good friend MIZFIT’s site. She is selling her one and only MIZFIT workout skirts. They are adorable and all proceeds go to charity!

Sometimes I stare out of the window without really looking at anything. I just stare with a blank. And then I snap out of it and I wonder “what the heck was I staring at… I wasn’t even thinking about anything” just staring. Total brain fart. Haha “THAT” moment. happens too often.

Ooh Kelp Powder – and in bulk?! I’m going to have to look for that one at the store. And figure out how to use it. Smoothies I’m guessing? And the number of brain farts I have is a little embarrassing sometimes. :)

Love you!

Ahh, dry shampoo (or, well, cornstarch, since it does the same thing and is $20 cheaper) is my lifeline.

Made a bowl of cereal; put the cereal back in the fridge and the milk back in the cupboard.

I have become convinced that my hard drive is full and to retain any new information presented to me I have to jettison something in the memory bank. Typically this is an item of some importance.

I have moment 1 CONSTANTLY. Is it bad that I’m only 24? And moment 2 happened this morning: got to the bus stop only to realize I left my bus pass in my coat pocket… back in my apartment. With no time to go back I had to use all of my quarters, which are like gold to me since I need them for laundry.
