The Confessional

My Disclosures: 2-8-11

1. I don't like to cuddle.  In fact, I don't like to be touched all that much.  I'm not your average touchy feely kind of girl and Toly knows to keep a safe distance from me during the night.  It's true, he once tried to spoon with me in the middle of the night and almost didn't live to tell anyone about it.  

2.  I measure out my cereal but ALWAYS add extra handfuls.  The whole reason I measure it out is because I know I'm going to add more than the presumed amount.  Having some kind of control is needed when it comes to me and cereal. 

3.  I love the new flavors of Chobani, the Lemon definitely included; however, I do not like the Lemon flavor mixed in to hot oats. 

 Whipped Banana Oats, Kashi Go Lean, Lemon Chobani, Blackberries, White Chocolate Wonderful PB

I put a spoonful of the lemon yogurt on top of the oats thinking it would be a lovely addition.  Something was just off.  Perhaps the tang of the lemon mixed with the creamy banana and PB?  Not sure, but on its own, the Lemon is fabulous.  Lesson learned. 

4. When I was little, I used to beg my mom to take me to Wendy's so that I could get the salad bar.  I have always been obsessed with salad bars. Not much has changed.

5. I think I'm addicted to this….

6. I also ate 1/2 of a soft pretzel that went unpictured.  2nd part of this confession- I ate it mostly out of the pure desire to dip it into the mustard.  I love mustard!

7. My run today was rough.  I was tired, my legs hurt, I had to stop a few times but I couldn't bring myself to just stop completely.  For some reason, I needed to get in 7 miles.  Often times, I have a very hard time going against my mentality.  I think this stubbornness is what makes me a runner though.

8. I used to hate eggs.  Now I can't live without them.

9. For once in my life, I didn't buy the Whole Wheat English Muffins.  These were Bay's English Muffins and they were delicious.  Enriched white flour is OKAY every now and then.

10. I'm also addicted to the Alexia Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries and I swear to you, I hardly ever eat frozen fries.  That is saying a lot.

Last but not least: I'm feeling rather stressed these days.  I'm assuming that is where all of this exhaustion is coming from but with the house and move coming up soon, I'm starting to feel incredibly anxious and excited and nervous and overwhelmed.  Excuse me if I seem a little off these next few weeks. 

Your turn: Confess something!  It's good for the soul. ;) 



  1. #2 and #10 are my confessions too :D

    And another confession = I MISS YOU AND HOPE YOU'RE VISITING AGAIN SOON!!

  2. I am obsessed with salad bars, cosmic cranberries and sweet potato fries! :)

  3. I love Oreos. We buy Newman O's because they are made with better ingredients. But they are simply not as good as Oreos. When I was pregnant with my first son, I went into the cafeteria to buy Oreos and they were sold out. I turned into a scary pregnant lady possessed by the Devil monster, green face, head spinning around on my neck. The cafeteria manager brought Oreos to my office the next day. I really miss eating Oreos.

  4. I would much rather bake than cook! I find baking so much more fun. I especially love baking healthier versions of my favorite desserts, but since I am a health coach and I know better, I still cook every day and bake once in a while. I really enjoyed your confessions!

  5. I'm with you on #6 - I love mustard!! Definitely my favorite condiment!! Hope your stress goes away soon. At least the end is in sight...soon you will be in your new home!!

  6. Totally with you on my stubbornness making me a runner. I refuse to stop until I get to my goal mileage!

    My confession: I say I don't like coconut because I threw up once after drinking a pina colada. I might actually like it, but i refuse to try!

  7. We must be soulmates - I hate cuddling too unless I'm in an off mood. I seriously cannot cuddle/be touched when going to bed. It makes me so cranky!!! We have started to sleep with a pillow inbetween us because the Husband enjoys elbowing me in the face most nights. Obviously not on purpose, but still... I'd rather not have bruises.

  8. I love eggs as well, but I can't eat them scrambled or fried if they are plain. I at least have to have salsa or ketchup mixed in with them. When I eat fried eggs (unless on a sammie) I have to have it mixed with grits - but I can eat a boiled egg with just salt & pepper...WT!!

  9. I have never tried that Synergy drink but I have been seeing it everywhere lately... I guess I'm going to have to taste it :)


  10. I hope things calm down for you!

    Confessions today:
    I'm drinking tea at work - shock! No coffee for me today.

    I love to cuddle :)

    I have an unhealthy relationship with the movie, The Notebook.

  11. @brandiHaha, I have an unhealthy relationship with The Notebook too! Best movie ever! I think I saw it 4 times in the theater and of course, I now own it. ;)

  12. i confess to eating fat free froyo out of the container in the middle of the night :)

    hehee. i never knew wendy's had a salad bar?!


  13. oh my gosh your egg sammies with buffalo sauce and blue cheese look SO delish. i'm trying that tonight!
    i, too, am obsessed with condiments. and sweet potato fries!

  14. omg! I'm totally the same with #1!!! People think I'm weird & I have people worry about our relationship bc we are so NOT cuddly! Do you ever have people ask you if things are "ok" just bc you aren't always hugging/holding hands/etc???

  15. Ha! Love it! I'm not a cuddler either! Any other time, sure but when I'm sleeping BACK OFF. Scott did the same thing when we were first dating. Didn't take my warning seriously and tried to snuggle, I totally drop kicked him away. :D I like my room when I sleep!

  16. Love this post! Hope you get out of your funk soon!

    I confess to polishing off 1/2 a jar of dark chocolate almond butter in the last 48 hours! Oh, the lack of control I have when it comes to nut butter!
