It has been 2 months since my last Confessions post, so I thought I would fill you guys in on my most recent confessions.

Confession-I totally didn't change my diet or exercise routine for the wedding.  I had big plans to do more strength workouts to tone up my arms and back and I was going to diet and be super skinny.  Turns out, I'm okay with how I look and I would rather enjoy exercise and eating than go on a strict diet and exercise regime.

Confession-I need to run 8:20 pace in my upcoming half marathon to PR.  I don't think that will happen because I only did 5 long-ish runs (6,6,7,8,10).  Whoopsy!  I don't recommend this as a training plan.  (Do as I say, not as I do...or something like that!)

Confession-I'm more stressed about making sure everyone else (read-the moms) are not stressed at our wedding than I am about the actual wedding!  Speaking of's in 10 days!!  OMG! 

Confession-My nails and hands look terrible!  I tried to cut my thumb off making the apple crumble for the party on Friday, I have a big blister from raking, and the cooler weather is drying out my hands.  Not to mention that my nails are looking really rough.  I need a manicure stat!

Confession-I have never had a pedicure.  I HATE people touching my feet.  I keep my toenails painted, but I don't let anyone else do it.  I think I need to have one done before the honeymoon.  After the race, my feet will be even I will just drink a glass (or 10) of champagne and have it done.

Confession-I make a grocery list each Tuesday or Wednesday for the following week.  It is a spreadsheet that has a place for the menu for each day and the grocery section is organized by section-Produce, Meats, Refrigerated, Pantry, Frozen, and Miscellaneous.  I am a total dork!

Confession-My allergies go crazy every time the weather changes.  Of course, the weather got cold and rainy over the past week or so.  Now, I am coughing and my nose is running.  Ugh!  I need Emergen-C, Claritan, and anything else to make this go away.

Confession-I took 2 naps on Sunday.  It was glorious!!  I got up at 8am and did a few things around the house.  Then I took my first nap-short and sweet, but really nice.  Then I watched a little tv, ran 10 miles, and ran a few errands...followed by another nap before Bobby got home from his bachelor party.  I need more naps in my life!

There you have it.  My confession for today.  Do you have anything to confess?


  1. I went on a strict diet exercise regime for my wedding and felt like I was starving all year, and now that it's all said and done I can't stop eating everything! lol I should have definitely just been fine with how I was in the first place!

    1. Congratulations on your recent marriage!! I think you are supposed to eat all the foods on the honeymoon! :)

  2. I get a pedicure every month and dread it, because I hate having my nails filed . I suck it up for the pedicure because my feet need professional love, lol! I never get manicures though. Needless to say, my feet always look nicer than my hands! ~Ree

    1. I'm dreading it, but I am sure I will love the results...and maybe even not hate the pedicure?? A girl can hope. :)

  3. What a fun collection of confessions. I would have never guessed that you've never had a pedicure because you don't like anyone touching your feet. Nothing wrong with that!

    And that's sweet that you're more worried about everyone not being stressed at the wedding. That's so sweet and thoughtful.

    And I wasn't sure when your wedding was...10 days!! Let the countdown begin!
