Sometimes this blog has it’s disadvantages.  It’s great because it serves as an outlet for me.  I can express how I’m feeling that day whether it’s negative or positive.  I don’t know about you but there are days I’m feeling a certain way and the next day I look back and wonder what my problem was.  It’s not that I’m talking out of both sides of my mouth, I just have a tendency to change my mind a lot.  Smile

Confession # 1:

I was smelling coffee all day long at work yesterday and it smelled good.  I didn’t have any but I was tempted.  I’m still not sure that I will give up coffee forever.  It’s been over 2 weeks and I haven’t noticed any benefits or felt any different without it.

Confession # 2:

Ever since I announced here that I wasn’t a runner I’ve been thinking about running.  I meant everything I said as far as it being difficult for me but there’s something about saying “I can’t do it” that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I will touch more on this tomorrow.

Confession # 3:

I’m going to do away with Weigh in Wednesday for now.  I mentioned last week that my plan is to do another round of Whole30 in June.  I won’t be able to weigh at all during that point, so I’m going to do away with the scale for the time being.

Confession # 4:

This might be more of a goal than a confession but I’m feeling very unorganized.  I want to work on becoming more organized at home and at work.  I have a desk in my room that just ends up collecting “things” in no particular order.





Sweet potato hash with leftover steak, onions and mushrooms.  Strawberries sprinkled with unsweetened coconut.


I know I took a picture of my lunch but it vanished somehow.  I had a leftover burger with mashed sweet potato and asparagus.



Kim and I went to an event at church after work where everyone was encouraged to bring a dish.  I ended up with a side salad, pulled pork, spinach, broccoli, a deviled egg and dessert.

Kim brought these Sweet Potato Brownies and I brought these Flourless Apple Cinnamon Muffins.  Thank you Dane for making them!!

Do you have any confessions?



  1. 1

    Funny you should mention that; I was trying to find a certain pic yesterday and came across pics from when we were doing C25K and thinking that it didn’t really suck when we were doing that. I keep thinking too, that maybe when I’m more fit that i may give it a shot again. Who knows, maybe I’ll still hate it and if so, I feel no pressure to keep doing it. I do miss running in events though, it’s always fun to collect some race bibs :)

    First… on your confessions… ;-)
    #1) I don’t go to the mall often, but when I did, just the smell of cinnabon would make me want it. But eating an overly-sized cinnamon roll would hurt my tummy. When I learned that I could learn to appreciate the aromas of things, rather than feeling the need to eat it, things changed. I mean, we like the smell of the ocean, fresh cut lawn and certain perfumes or colognes, so why can’t we just enjoy the aromas of food for what they are, too?!

    #2) I never got the feeling that you stopped running because you “couldn’t” do it, but more because you didn’t like to… Which is completely different! (Unless your confession is that you felt like you couldn’t…) If you are getting the urge to do it, that’s a different story, too! I can’t wait to start running again. Especially now that we have 70-degree weather in MN.

    #3) Makes sense!

    #4) Ditto, is all I have to say. I have an office with a desk like that, too. Do they build them that way? ;-)

    My confession. Sometimes I blame my husband for my lack of weight loss because he rarely wants me to cook and always wants to dine out. But I have to remind myself that I am always making my OWN choices.
