Friday Confessions

It’s Friday!!  HALLELUJAH!!

Now.  Let’s confess.

Friday confessional high heeled love

Linking up with Aubrey @ High-Heeled Love :)

I confess… that I thought once Golf Tourney weekend was over, things would settle down a bit and I’d have so much more time.  I was wrong. *sigh*

I confess… that it really sucks when the grass grows three flippin’ feet a day, and there’s ABSOULTELY NO DAMN TIME TO CUT IT.

I confess… I’ve had it just about up to HERE with mosquitoes and allergies.  Seriously.  The mosquitoes in our town are always nutso, but this year seems to be especially ridiculous.  I skipped the Flyers home opener last night simply because of the damn things.

I confess… that I’d really hoped to have my “50” post up this week, but it just hasn’t been in the cards.  Hopefully next week!  It will work out well that way, actually, because I have only 3 days left in my TurboFire schedule, and it will be fun to write that post and reflect back on the  past 20 weeks!

I confess… that I’m still a little amazed that on Sunday, I will be able to say I actually stuck with a work-out regime for 20 weeks.  I like to think I have all kinds of faith in myself, but back on Day 1, I really didn’t think I would ever be able to stick to that 6-days-a-week routine for 20 FRIGGIN’ WEEKS.

I confess… that things in the weight-loss world haven’t exactly been 100% rosey this week.  I mean, it’s great that I’ve lost 50 pounds and I’m super-ecstatic about it.  But for some reason, out of the tons of wonderful and supportive comments I’ve got from friends & family on reaching the “magic number”, and despite how good I’m feeling inside, I’ve been letting the the few not-so-wonderful comments gnaw away at me.  Why is that?  WHY???

I confess… that I need a tougher skin. Fo reals, yo.

I confess… that I sat down last night and drafted up my own schedule to follow for the next four weeks, and it kind of makes me nervous.  It’s sort of a hybrid of TurboFire and the beginning stages of training for a 5k.  Notice that I still can’t just come right out and say “training for a 5k”?  I still stick that disclaimer in there - “the beginning stages”.  Because I’m still not entirely confident that I can ever actually run a 5k.  I’ve been doing this lunch time 15-minute hydro pole jogging for a few weeks now, and it’s not seeming to get ANY easier. And the “running in public” thing still scares the BEJEEZUS out of me.  I can’t help but picture an elephant clomping along…

I confess… that I’m very excited to be travelling with members of our church congregation to St-Anne-de-Bellevue tomorrow for our minister Nancy’s Ordination!!

I confess… that I kind of can’t believe Relay for Life is NEXT SATURDAY.  Wow.  Things just keep creeping up on me!!!  So very excited for it!!!

I confess… that if you were a fly (or a mosquito) on the wall of my car this week, you would likely find me belting this song at the top of my lungs:

I confess… it’s an odd choice, considering I haven’t been doing much beer drinking and ripping and tearing and painting the town red these days, but it makes me long for summer.  Oh, and also, Kip Moore is a sexy sexy boy.

Have a fabu weekend, gang :)

Ok, first off whose making negative comments? I'll come kick their ass for you! :)

secondly, the whole running thing... I stumbled across this post this morning. I haven't read it completely but thought I'd share it with you.

And don't be so hard on yourself! You're friggin awesome!

LeeLu Creations said...

Why would anyone leave you not so nice comments? :( All I can say is that you rock! What you have accomplished is awesome.

Steph said...

I'm down for kicking some ass too. You are doing and looking great!

My grandpa told me this weekend that he's rather have fat grand kids than sick ones. That didn't make me feel too great.

Be like the duck--let it roll off your back. Easier said than done, but you can also be like the duck--above the water serene and together, under the surface, paddling like crazy--never let them see they get to you.
I toy with the idea of doing a 5k, but really can't see myself running that far.

Jolene said...

Good for you sticking to it for 20 weeks! I am proud of you.

It sounds like your town needs to spray for the pest.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Caroline said...

I'm all about kicking ass you. You have worked so freakin hard!! I just started the Beach Body Brazilian Butt lift. Oh. My. I admit I thought it would be a bit wussy, but it's kicking my fat but for sure. I really do like it though.

What you need to do is sign up for a 5K - that is about 3 months away. Most runners are completely supportive of new runners, event those of us who consider ourselves to be beginners even after 2 years (um, yea, that would be me). If you can stick to a 20 week program, you can run a 5K!

Caroline said...

Oops, I just re-read my post. And I surely didn't mean that i want to kick your ass. Stupid keyboard.

Jillian said...

its totally okay...I haven't posted on my blog in over a week...blame target I've been working a lot but I have this weekend off so I'm planning my posts for the week. I find I can write my posts ahead of time, schedule them and edit them if needed and it helps a bit when life is crazy

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Don't let negative comments have power over you. Look at what you've accomplished! Congrats on your regimen. :D That's quite an accomplishment!

Enjoy your weekend, my dear. I hope the mosquitoes will leave you alone.

Have you ever heard the trick about dryer sheets? Apparently pests don't like them.

Hrm...sounds like you're letting stress get to ya. Forget the lawn- it'll get mowed eventually (that's what I tell myself about our jungle, er, front lawn). And I know the negative voices are bothersome, but they aren't you- not the you that is made of the same elements present at the birth of the universe, the you that works at goals even when it's hard and painful, not the you that posts blog posts even when life is disruptive and busy, not the TRUE you.

Stacie said...

Haters gonna hate! Let it roll off of your back.

And the grass? We have a war in our neighborhood...all the old retired men cut theirs like every week and it makes my hubs crazy because it always makes our yard look like a jungle, when it isn't theirs are just unnaturally short.

Seriously!? Why the F would anyone put you down? That is craziness!!!! So the video is blocked at work, what song is it?
