Today is Tuesday. But this week, it's my Friday. That's because it's my last day of work for this week....and I don't go back until next Monday.
Regardless of it being Tuesday or my Friday...it's the day I do my True Confessions. Join in, if you want...it's a lot of fun....sometimes.
I confess that... after reading the blog post I wrote yesterday afternoon, I don't think it's that bad. I mean, I smiled a couple of times while reading it. It was kind of witty - I guess. I kinda think that it's one of the funniest posts I've written in a while. Is that egotistical of me to say? I don't care if it is...just wondering.
I confess that... as much as I love my job, I'm so glad that I get the next 5 days off. Not so much for the time off - more for the fact that I get to spend a couple of days relaxing, time with the family, putting up Christmas decorations and all that jazz.
I confess that... Saturday, while out shopping, I went and ate pizza. At a pizza buffet restaurant. And I ate A LOT of pizza. Too much....way too much. Not enough to gain 4lbs this week - like my stupid scale is saying - but enough to know that I ate way too much pizza.
I confess that... the pizza was all I ate from Friday night until Sunday afternoon. I just forgot to eat....except the pizza. It was while Hubby and I were out shopping at 3pm Sunday that I realized that the pizza had been all I'd eaten since eating dinner Friday evening. I know that's not good - but my mind was so consumed with shopping, there just wasn't time to think about eating. Except, of course, for the piles of pizza I ate.
I confess that... even though I managed to score a few bargains while out this weekend - I still don't feel like my kids have very many presents. Not fun presents, anyway. I guess I'm just going to have to realize that the two older kids are getting older...and they're just not into toys anymore. It's sad, but reality. It makes Christmas shopping so darn hard.
I confess that... while out shopping, Saturday, I listened to Christmas music the whole time. Yep. Me. The person that believes there should be no Christmas stuff in my life until the day after Thanksgiving. I just couldn't help myself. I was out Christmas shopping - and wanted to be in the mood. I sang the songs, and blasted them for all to hear. I didn't even care.
I confess that... I don't want to talk about my eating this week, or the fact that my scale is being so mean to me. Not because I've really done anything to be ashamed of...except, of course, the pizza. But, I'm just so pissed about the gain this week that it's left me feeling blah. I don't want to hear about it being water weight or Aunt Flo weight. I've never gained 4lbs in 1 week - without gorging myself like a stuffed pig....and I didn't do that this week. I'm not a food expert - but I know that eating several slices of pizza...does not equal to 14000 calories. Even with everything I've eaten this week...in order to gain that much weight, I'd have had to have sat on my couch every single day and just eaten. That didn't happen.
I confess that... I know I just talked about my eating...even though I said I didn't want to.
I confess that... I'm getting kind of tired of receiving emails from people asking me if they can share with me the "secrets" to losing weight. Guess what? There are no secrets. The fact that I'm gaining weight like a hot air balloon is not because I'm not in the know. I haven't been kept in the dark - and everyone else around me has been given the top secret information on how to lose weight. I know how. I know that I have to eat less calories than what I'm burning. I know I have to eat healthy foods. I know that I have to exercise I know. I know. I know. It's not the knowing I'm struggling with - it's the doing. So, no offense to those people that are trying to help and be kind....but it's not helping. It's not a secret.
I confess that... I'm super duper excited about cleaning my house tomorrow - in preparation for Thanksgiving. Really. No sarcasm intended. In my opinion, there's nothing better than scrubbing and cleaning a house ready for company. I don't get company very often...so this is always a nice treat. Everything gets a good clean the day before company comes....carpets, counters, floors, bathrooms, ceiling fans...everything. Then, after all the cleaning, I have to figure out how to sit 13 people for Thanksgiving dinner. That's the tough part...but it shall be done!
I confess that... as much as I'd love to sit here all day confessing...and today, I think I could totally do it... I can't. It is that time, once again, that I have to get ready for work.
If you want to get something off your chest....hop on over to your own blog and do your own True Confession Tuesday post. If you don't feel like you've got enough to fill up a post - then feel free to post your confessions in my comments. I always love to hear from you guys...unless, of course, you want to share weight loss secrets with me. ;)
Till next time. ;)
