True Confessions Tuesday

Yep, I'm doing it again.  True Confessions Tuesday.  Being that my Fat Woman Bootcamp is all about focusing on the positive and my accomplishments - I need one day where I can openly admit some of my setbacks....that's where True Confessions Tuesday will come in.  So, let's get right to it....

I confess that in three weeks, I've managed to gain 8lbs.  Yes, I said that right - 8 freakin' pounds!!  The worst part is that almost half of those pounds have appeared in the last week since starting to run again... blurg!! (That's my new word...thank you Liz from 30 Rock!!)

I confess that I have just started watching 30 Rock!! LOL  Haven't ever seen a single episode on TV, but Hubby and I started watching it on Netflix...I kinda like it.

I confess that after promising myself on more than one occasion to start using my Zumba for the PS3 Move - I have yet to use it.  It's still sitting in the box since the one time I used it when I first bought it.  Going for a run has appealed to me more - so I've gone with the running.

I confess that I have yet to start strength training - after, once again, promising myself I would.  I don't know why.  Every time I look in the mirror and see my enormous wings that hang down from my arms - I tell myself that it's time to start getting those bad boys in shape....do I do it? No.  Blurg!!

I confess that last night, after doing so freakin' well on my eating all day, I binged on bread.  That's a hard one for me to admit.  All day I guzzled down my water, went for a great run, ate everything off my meal plan...and then...  Well, I was up really late working on a special project, and felt a craving for bread.  I kept telling myself not to - but the more I did, the more I wanted it.  The craving won - not only did I eat the bread, but at midnight! So not good.

I confess that not working is driving me NUTSO!!  Yes, I love being home with the kids.  Yes, I love having the freedom.  But I don't like not having a schedule or a routine.  I miss being busy.  It's only been 2 weeks - what's it going to be like a month from now??  UGH!!

I confess that I'm so darned proud of my running time from last night.  Last Wednesday was my first run in several weeks - and I finished two miles in 34:34.  Well, I went running again on Saturday and started doing sprint intervals and finished two miles in 31:05.  Last night, I did it all again - and finished two miles in 29:30!!!  A pace time of 14:41...Hellz to the yeah!!

I confess that I'm really getting into the Fat Woman Bootcamp thing.  I'm realizing that I can make mistakes, but as long as I don't dwell - and just pick myself back up - I will be fine.  I'm getting my running passion back, I'm really focusing on my eating (for the most part), and I've started guzzling water down like it's going out of style. 

I confess that I like confessing - it makes me feel like I've given myself a clean slate, and I can start over. 

OK, your turn, what would you like to confess today?

Till next time. ;)

  1. great confession...bread is one of the things I crave. I have a piece each morning with Peanut Butter just to keep those cravings at bay. Good job on your run...maybe I should try doing the sprint intervals. I would love to add to my speed.

  2. Oh my heck we are in the same boat with 30 Rock - never watched an episode until about a month or 2 ago when we started watching them streaming on Netflix. It's the perfect filler show when you want to watch a little something but don't necessarily want to commit to a full hour of something. We're doing the same thing with Battlestar Gallactica and I LOVE IT. We're just into the 4th season.

    I may start confession, I don't know.


Tell me what's on your mind - I love to hear from you!
