True Confessions Tuesday

Ahh..that time of the week to spill my guts, lay out my sins, and cleanse myself of all the dirty little secrets I've been bottling inside.  Don't get too excited - as far as "dirty" goes....there's not many...

I confess that this past weekend's dinner choices were anything BUT healthy... Friday? Hot dogs.  Saturday? Cheeseburger and fries.  Sunday? Pizza.  I know - the three main food groups from my old ways.  Somehow, I still managed to stay under my calories though... huh.

I confess that I was disappointed, once again, when I received another "Dear John" letter from a school - telling me I hadn't even been selected for an interview.  Rat Balls!! 

I confess that despite getting the Dear John letter, I didn't run to the fridge for an emotionally driven snack.  I let it go.  Did you hear that?? Yes, I said I just let it go.

I confess that after making a plea on my Facebook page and my Twitter for people to vote for me for a featured blog spot on Flogmyblog.net, and only getting one vote, (THANK YOU WHOEVER YOU WERE) I felt a little disappointed.  Having my blog as a feature on a website like that means a lot to me.  So, maybe I didn't give enough information....

I confess that I would LOVE for you to visit flogmyblog.net and vote for my blog.  All you have to do is click on the sidebar poll.  You don't have to register.  You don't have to give your email address.  If you're a blogger - you can sign up... but it's not mandatory.  It takes 3 seconds.  PLEASE???  Pretty, pretty please?  I already confessed a few weeks ago that I'm an attention whore - so you understand, right?

I confess that I'm super excited about the new challenge that's starting tomorrow over at shrinkingjeans.net.  There's going to be teams, there's going to be boot camp... I'm going to be held accountable for my actions.  Win! Win! Win!  It's called Burst in to Summer.  You should go check it out.

I confess, that despite saying I would NOT get on the scale until my weigh-in...which is tomorrow... I got on the scale this morning.  I'm not going to tell you what it said - cause that would ruin my post for tomorrow... but I had to confess that I didn't wait like I said I would.

I confess that I've used the "L" word to describe working out.  I'm not talking about running, either, I'm talking about 30 Day Shred.  The L word?  LOVE.  Can you believe it?  I've used that word to describe working out with weights, and jumping jacks, and ab work.  Holy rat balls...what's happened to me?

I confess that when I bought a new bathing suit on Sunday to go swimming at my friend's house - I got that "ugh, you look so fat" feeling when I looked in the mirror.  I hate that feeling, but it sure does motivate me to work-out even more.  Maybe by this time next year, I will be confessing how much I love looking at myself in a bathing suit.  HA!

I confess that after watching two episodes of Master Chef, I got this urge to start cooking.  Saturday, I tore through my healthy cookbooks and found some cool dishes to try this week.  All of the recipes are healthy.  I don't usually like to cook - but I need something to do with my time, and I might as well add some cooking to my mix.

Lastly, I confess that I want to try some new things this summer.  I've had this urge to go camping - even managed to score a tent from Freecycle.  Not sure if all the poles are in it.. but it's a start.  I want to be outdoors more, I don't want to sit in the house, I want to do some fun things... and fun includes hiking, and fishing, and maybe even swimming in a lake or river.  Yikes!!  On this confession I should add that I'm not usually into that type of stuff..at. all.  Bugs?? No thank you.  Going to the bathroom in the woods? Not on your life.  But, yeah... now, all of a sudden, I want to go camping.

OK.  Now it's your turn.  Go confess your sins - or confess your brags...that's always fun, too.  Come back and leave a link in the comments...

Last plug at trying to get you to vote for me at Flogmyblog.net.  It really only does take 3 seconds.. I timed it. (not really, but I'm gonna try anything). 

Alright, time to get ready for some grocery shopping, and exercising. 

Till next time. ;)

  1. I was like you over the weekend....not the best choices. But onward and downward! Also, I totally voted for you and you're in the lead!

  2. Every time I read a really great "Confession" post (like yours) I'm inspired to do my own! But then I think about all the honesty that would pour out of that poor thing, and I think better of losing that many 'friends!' lol Just kiddin'! It's coming! :)
