True Confessions Tuesday

It is Tuesday, right?  It seems like my days have become lost in the fact that I'm now staying home... it's so weird...good, but weird.

It's time, once again, to get some things off my chest...to lay it all out there...and CONFESS!!

I confess that I did not do boot camp last night.  This is my hardest confession... because it was the one thing I was looking forward to the most this week.  I didn't do it because I couldnt' get my stupid computer to load the videos to show me how to do the exercises.  Could I have just gone out for some sprints, and done the exercises I knew?? Well, of course.  Did I?? NO!! UGH!! I am planning on doing it tonight, though...even if I can't get the videos to load.  I figure doing it Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday this week isn't the worst thing in the world, right?

I confess that I'm very upset with my scale this morning.  My first weigh in for my Burst into Summer challenge is tomorrow - and if my weight is what it was this morning...I'm going to fail my team for the first week.  It's so frustrating, because I have done really well with my eating (except for last Friday) and my water drinking... but the weight is going in the wrong direction.

I confess that I have not worked out much since last Wednesday.  I ran last Wednesday night, I did the Shred on Thursday...then I slacked off for the weekend.  I did start a new program, yesterday, called Supreme 90 Day that gave me a good full body work-out... but I feel like it just hasn't been enough.

I confess that, starting yesterday, I'm going to really start working on strength and endurance training.  The Supreme 90 Day work-out yesterday was tough...really tough... but I got through it, and I felt stronger just doing that one work-out.  The weights I used weren't really heavy enough - so I'm upping them today.

I confess that this morning, for breakfast, I made the most yummy protein shake.  Strawberries, blackberries, protein powder, and 1% milk...oh, and a dash of whipping cream...and I was in protein shake heaven.

I confess that I usually hate protein shakes.  I tried them last year when I was doing boot camp - and I just never found a taste for the protein powder.  Don't ask me what's changed now, cause I don't know, but it was different this morning.

I confess that I haven't been able to stop thinking about my interview on Saturday at the Catholic School.  I'm having an inner battle with the whole thing.  I was really excited about learning about the school - but I keep judging myself on why I wouldn't be a good teacher there (certain things in my life that would be extremely "frowned upon" in the Catholic church).  It's actually kept me awake the past two nights...and it's just...well, not like me, to worry about stuff like that.  I think I will be an AWESOME teacher - but do I really want to teach in a school that I feel will judge me because of having kids out of wedlock, or having a tattoo, or not being "legally" married.... it's tough.

Lastly, I confess that I watched Extreme Make-Over: Weight Loss edition last night...and was..well...kind of disappointed.  I mean, I know the title of the show explains the premise..its "extreme weight loss", but losing 313lbs in one year while having an extreme protruding ulcer?  Not exactly the "healthy lifestyle" message that I think people should be getting. 

The more I travel on this journey, the more it bugs me when I see shows like this one.  I mean, who really has the time to work out 6 hours a day?  Is it really healthy to do something like that?  I, personally, think there should be more shows that highlight "normal" people like us - who commit to making a lifestyle change, and conquer our battles the healthy way.  Just saying.

*OK, getting off soap box*

That's it for today...what confession would you like to make? 

Till next time. ;)

  1. :) great candid post! Good luck with everything. We all have off days, weeks, months but you are still here and fighting it! So good for you
    Have a wonderful week.

  2. I don't watch any of the Extreme makeover shows. Whether it's the home edition or weight lose edition...they just aren't real life to me. so much could be accomplished for families with the money that is spent for luxuries they really don't need. Off my soap box now!!

    I have sore shoulders and arms today thanks to that bootcamp workout! And watching those videos made a definitely difference for me. Good luck getting the workout down tonight!

  3. I love your honesty and am so glad that I found your blog...Am adding it to my sidebar.....

  4. Ah - love your confessions....hang in there hun!

  5. Great confessions! I'm actually going to "borrow" your Tuesday theme if you don't mind...I have some things to get off my chest as well.:)


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