I had a very odd dream last night that I think could be a sign that I am perhaps taking my workouts and nutrition a bit too seriously. On a typical day I eat between 250-300g of protein per day, it's not all in the form of solid food, much of it is supplemented with smoothies/shakes. Times when I know I won't be able to reach my protein intake goal I must admit that I get a bit edgy and start to panic about getting enough protein, this is where I think my dream stemmed from.
So in the dream I was at home and had no meat, there was no meat to be found in Dallas. I was just in from the gym and was in one of my weird "must have protein fits." This is where it gets gross/odd. I look down at my calves and decide the look pretty meaty so I cut some meat off my leg. In my dream I even commented on how nice the meat looked. The cutting didn't hurt, there wasn't any blood, and I was sure that my calves would just grow back. Everything was so damn surreal that in my dream I even said to myself while I was flexing my carved calves in the mirror, "This has got to be a dream."
Needless to say I woke up in the middle of the night and grabbed my calves to make sure they were in one piece.
