Confessions

There are a few things I need to confess:

  • I always add A1 to my steak. Even at fancy restaurants.
  • The seam on my socks needs to perfectly align with my toes otherwise I can’t put on my shoes
  • I still try to avoid cracks in the sidewalks. Don’t want to break mama’s back!
  • I forget to turn off my straightener. A lot.
  • I wear my sunglasses all the time. I do not want crows feet.

And, in the spirit of confessionals, I did something very very bad today. Like, go to church and tell a priest bad. I had no motivation to go to the gym (even though I wanted to, my body didn’t) so I went to the store and bought skittles BEFORE my workout. And not the regular size pack. The kind that has a hole on the top so it is a hanging display. Like the bag that has six servings. AND THEN. (this is where you must brace yourself) I went to the gym parking lot AND ATE THE WHOLE BAG. In like minutes. Then worked out. (*gasp*) Please, please, please tell me someone out there has done something as shameful as that. Oof, I felt so horrible about myself.

While I was doing some cardio, I debated whether or not I should make this confession. I know a lot of bloggers try (I’m not saying all!) to put their best foot forward in what they choose to share with the online world, but then JLo’s ‘I’m Real’ came on my iPod, and I thought, ‘What the hell, I’m real-what you get is what you see’. And that ended that debate.

Oddly enough, I had a great workout, but I am hoping the sugar overload and high performance workout were not related. GAH, it feels so good to get that off my chest. Like is something that someone in Overeaters Anonymous would confess. OMG, should I be in Overeaters Anonymous?!

On to better and brighter things. Before my appalling sugar behavior, I started the day with a bowl of oats. I had no nut butter in the house- I REPEAT: NO NUT BUTTER IN THE HOUSE- so I had to improvise. I mixed oats with almond milk, water, chia seeds and Vanilla Chai Vega protein, then topped with a spoonful of Cranberry Apple Butter.

I have to admit, it was probably the least appetizing looking bowl of oats I have ever made. The protein powder had a greenish hue to it. But, it had a sweet flavor; definitely different than the creamy bowl of peanut buttery oats that I’m used to.

The Vega One was a single serving pack- I am still debating whether I want to indulge myself in a full canister. It’s so expensive! But there is SO MUCH protein in it, and it’s good, and I like it and I could have it everyday…

You know what today feels like? It feels like a great day to go see The Hunger Games! Especially since it’s half price Tuesday at the theater around the corner! Eek, I’m so excited. I was going to make lamb stew for dinner in honor of the movie, but I realized I don’t really care for lamb, nor do I care for stew. And I wasn’t about to go shoot a rabbit with a bow and arrow instead. Nuts and berries maybe? No, Tyler needs a man’s meal. What to do, what to do.

I’ll check in tonight when I get home from the movies! In the meantime…

Anybody have a confession?
