Friday Confessions: Diets suck and weekends rock

Okay, folks.  I’ve got another big, fun weekend on deck, so what else to do in preparation but confess? 


Linking it up with Mamarazzi

I confess…that I was plugging into MyFitnessPal what I “expected” to eat today, and I was almost double the calories that I’m supposed to take in on a daily basis.  Friday office lunch and friends’ birthday dinner tonight at Montana’s Cookhouse will do that… So I fiddled around some more, subtracting the fries and replacing them with the house salad, vowing to only eat half of my Oven Baked Antijitos, and only half of my Smokehouse Wrap.  Still way over.  So I eliminated my Caesar.  Now I’m only about 150 calories over.  *sigh*  Some days, it sucks.

I confess…that I only have to look down at my baggy pants and remind myself that it’s worth it.

I confess…I’m insanely excited to see Breaking Dawn: Part 1 – just a little over a month away!  I have tickets to the midnight premiere!!  EEEEEK!!!


I confess…that I can’t believe my nephew Caden is 6 today.  SIX!!!!  Where does the time go?!  So proud of him!!  Sending big bloggy birthday wishes to him, cousin Dale, and Ben too!!


I confess…that my excitement for Car Rally tomorrow is comparable to my excitement for things like my birthday and Christmas.  I mean, how often do you get to tour the back roads with your friends on a friggin’ scavenger hunt?!   At times like this…I LOVE my small town!!

I confess…that I really thought last weekend I wanted a puppy.   But then I got the new couches instead.  And I realized maybe I don’t want a puppy after all.  A puppy might pee on the couch or get hair all over it.  Nah…definitely no puppy.  ;)

I confess…that I took pictures of my furniture to show you guys after some people asked to see it yesterday, but I haven’t had a chance to upload them yet.  Next week, promise.  I just know you’ll be waiting with baited breath. ;)

I confess…I thought it was  a teensy bit creepy that I had just finished reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult on Wednesday afternoon about a high school shooting, and then that night I tuned into Criminal Minds for the first time in a long time (because it scares the bejeezus outta me) and the episode was about a killer whose victims were the survivors of a school shooting 10 years before.  Yeah.  Just a teeeeeensy bit creepy!

Aaaand…that’s all I’ve got.  Now I’m ready.  For birthday celebrations and Car Rally and anything else this weekend might throw at me.  BRING IT!!!

Car rally time is almost here and i dont even care if its miserable weather (well i do, but I got my rubbers ready)

I agree with the puppy thing, the same with my cat, I want her gone - im sick of the hair all over my couches!

YAY! Can't wait for birthday supper tonight and then car rally!! Woo Hoo!! My fitness pal isn't too happy with me today too...I still have my caesar on there because I want SO badly but I have to choose between spinach dip or!

Jen said...

I am pumped for the car rally too!!! Me and 4 of my besties touring the back roads....It's so much fun!!! See you Saturday!

We have dogs and that's EXACTLY why I won't get new couches. :) Happy Friday!

We have a dog and we don't have new couches. We have a cat and she is much harder on the furniture with the leaving of the hair.
Have fun this weekend--as if it were going to be a problem.

Nicole said...

We don't let our dogs on the furniture, that's how we eliminate that problem :) and I can't watch Criminal Minds. it scars the bejezzus out of me too!

Stacie said...

OK, I'm sure that you have touched on it before and I just missed it--what is a fitness pal?

And I can't wait for Breaking Dawn!

Sarita said...

I have kids and so no new couches for me!

Nancy said...

Jillian, I LOVE your new furniture, it looks great in your living room! You are looking great these days too, way to go!

That car rally sounds so fun. I grew up in a small town and miss things like that. Though I'm liking all of the conveniences of my larger city.

Happy birthday to you nephew!

Something about airbrushed glittery vampires just cracks me up.

150 calories is nothing, a mile walk around town can get rid of that!
