Well, I guess that is not true because I am going to confess a few things but really I have just wanted to say that for awhile now. So here are my confessions….
– I recorded the Bachelor Wedding, so I finally got to watch it on Monday. I was a little creeped out by Sean and the lingerie store then talked down to his crotch. I am all about men buying lingerie for their women but I don’t want to watch it on TV. Creep factor. They are super cute together though so I will give him a pass.
– I am kinda a nerd when it comes to books! I won a Goodreads giveaway and received an Advanced Reader’s Edition of Doing Harm by Kelly Parsons. It doesn’t come out officially until 2.4.14. I am excited to read it and will most likely do a review.
– For most of my life I have always been insecure about my looks. Never feeling like I was pretty let alone beautiful. I saw this on Facebook and I think it is so important to teach young girls to feel beautiful.
– My car is a mess thanks to how cold it has been and not having time to vacuum and clean it. I got the OCD bug to as least dust my dashboard. So this morning I
am an idiot didn’t have my coffee yet and I sprayed detailer spray onto my cold dashboard to which it immediately froze. Yeah, I know! DUMB!
– I have been doing P90X3 for about 3 weeks now and I am now getting bored with it. Tony Horton is really annoying the crap out of me now too. I think I may just go back to the gym. I miss lifting heavy ass weight and running. I want to be so sore I can’t walk!
– One of my goals for this year was to stress less and feel overwhelmed less. I am totally failing at this right now. I made a list of so many recipes and other posts I want to do but so far I haven’t been able to spend a weekend getting a bunch of them done. I haven’t had a completely free weekend once this year. I am hoping I can get this done in one of the next few weeks.
What are some of your confessions?
Linking up with Kath from Vodka and Soda and with Liz from Fitness Blondie.

i saw that youtube too about selfies! it’s such a great way to promote self-love. but i did notice something – this was only geared twoards females. what about guys? are they not as insecure as girls/women? in any case, it was good to see and remember that no matter what age, there’s always something you dont like about yourself and seeing your mother like that is a pretty big wakeup call because we think our mothers are perfect as they see us.
I know the guys were completely left out, though I think women are harder on themselves than men. Would have been nice to see one or two men though.
I kept flipping to the Bachelor wedding and it felt so weird! I’m sure they love each other but all the junk that went into making that two hours felt so contrived. You already fell in love publicly – I don’t think you owe it to them to get married that way!
Here’s to stressing less! I have been able to store away some blog posts and jot down ideas when they come and I have been feeling so much better. I hope you get some time this weekend!
Yes, they were so cute and I really liked them but 2 hours was too long and we didn’t need to see everything. I have so many ideas written down but it is all recipes and Random Acts of Kindness stuff that I need to do so I can write the drafts. I feel good having the lists though, it helps so I am not scrambling last minute.

I didn’t even know that there was another wedding segment. I remember taping Trista and Ryan’s big day on VHS! You know, since hers was all pink and my fairytale wedding maybe. Don’t feel stressed, your time will come when you can get more done than you planned. Also, I don’t miss things freezing in the middle of winter, but that is kinda funny!
Did you see their 10 year anniversary special last week? They renewed their vows. It was funny but also a duh moment.
Amanda Bumgarner says
Ah! I just watched that selfie video a few days ago. It made me get all teary eyed. Also, so cool you won an advanced copy of that book! You’ll have to let us know how it is.
It was such a great video! Yes, I will totally review it after I read it. It was really cool it even had a letter from the publisher in the front cover.
Great YouTube video. Happy wednesday!
Thank you. I think it had a really great message behind it.
I DVRed the Bachelor wedding but I didn’t watch it yet. I’ve read a bunch of people’s comments about it though and now I’m not so sure I still want to see it, haha.
Haha!! It is good, and they were really cute. The lingerie shopping part was just a little creepy but it didn’t last long.
Liz @ Fitness Blondie says
Gym!!! GYM!!! GYM FOR THE WIN!
I miss it so much! I get such a better workout at the gym and I end up working out longer too.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
How do I get in on these Goodreads giveaways? I can’t figure it out.
I hate when people on home exercise programs ignore me. They ruin it!
You have to be on a desktop, I tried using the app and it is doesn’t show up. Go to Explore then giveaways. Then enter away!
Haha! Yeah, and the same cheesy jokes get old.

I feel you on P90X3. I’ve also been doing it, but Tony Horton annoys the shit out of me! I swear he talks just to flippin’ hear himself speak. He’s not endearing at all. Then I like how he jabbers all workout long, then jumps in at the end and speeds up the pace because now he wants to act like a hotshot. I prefer Shaun T.
Amen girl! He is always trying to one up the person next to him. I do like Shaun T better but Chalene the best. I was not impressed with T25 which was kinda disappointing but I loved Insanity.
I tried doing insanity for a little while over the summer when we were staying at Kory’s parent’s house out in the country and there was no gym in sight. I got so bored of doing the same routine over and over! Definitely go back to the gym! And do that treadmill interval workout that I posted since I can’t right now 🙁
Yes, I really need the variety. I do mix it up between Insanity, P90X and TurboFire but I really really just like the gym! I will be totally trying that treadmill workout for sure!
Just watched that whole video and wow, it was really great. I just started my t25 yesterday and I can definitely relate to wanting to feel sore from the gym after! Maybe do 2 days of p90x and 3 at the gym lifting? Thats what I’m doing for my workouts right now.
It is funny the things girls pick up. We really should bash selfies so much. How are you liking T25? I thought it was a little “slow” so I couldn’t get into it. I may still do P90X3 a few days a week but it will be as a second workout not as my main one.
Tony Horton is so annoying!!!! 90% (ok, maybe just 50%…) of the reason I quit P90X is because of him.
He really is annoying! His is so obnoxious in trying to outdo everyone too. I don’t feel like I am getting that great of a workout either. At least with the original I was sore.
i have been feeling overwhelmed lately! loved the selfies video, as i know you read my post on that.
So much to do, so little time! Yes, I remember you post and it falls along the same lines. We need to be kinder to ourselves!
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
My car is a disaster but I have been way too unmotivated to clean it. Maybe we should force each other this weekend?!
We should!! I really need to vacuum it but to do it outside is crazy cold. It is supposed to get up in the high 40’s so we should be able to manage it.

Him in the lingerie store was probably the most awkward thing I have ever seen in my life. I didn’t watch it, but so many of my coworkers were talking about it that I had to at least see that part!
Yes, it was so awkward I felt bad for him. Thy really shouldn’t have aired that part. Poor guy.
I just found out about Goodreads giveaways and then went and entered 20 or so of them. I can see a new way to waste time forming in my head.
Yes, I am on there like everyday now!! Haha! So addicting. I am so excited to read the book I won. It’s good because I have found a lot of new books to add to my list too.
the whole episode of the bachelor wedding was a little awkward- i mean we get it they are gonna have sex!! and i love that video! we do need to instill that in kids.
It really was, they needed to cut out a lot of it. What was with the whole grown sexy! Ahhh too much! Yes, it is so important to empower them not pick at “flaws”.
i love when i get books on my door steps that i’ve won from good reads. i have 2 shelves full of them. and half of them i havent read yet
You have won that many??! Wow so impressed! You need to get reading, girl! 🙂
Ooo I love when I win books. Reading is the best! I really need to go to Goodreads more often.
It is fun, I have only won one so far. I may go on there a little too often! Ooops! 🙂
I’m so bummed that I missed The Bachelor wedding. I completely forgot to record it. 🙁 Do you still have it? I can be there in a few hours.
Haha!! I do, get your butt over here! 🙂
I love the bachelor, it makes me laugh. And I consider myself a book worm, have a great Thursday dear.
It is quite entertaining. Hope you are having a great week!
Kim @ Racing Bananas says
I love confessions 🙂 I’ve never done P90X but I can’t do workout videos because I hate being in my apartment all the time! I love the variety the gym provides – new setting, lots of workout options!
Yes, I don’t mind working out at home but I do feel I get a better workout in the gym. I like being able to switch it up too!
I hated watching Sean shop for lingerie, too. WAY too awkward.
My old roommate and I used to hate the voice on our work out routine video, so we memorized the routine for the most part and muted it.
Very awkward. That is a good idea. He just gets a little to cocky for me after awhile.
