Happy Hump Day readers!
Today I'm linking up with Catalyn from Confessions of a Northern Belle. I recently found her blog and am enjoying reading about her life in Georgia as a mama and teacher.
I've always loved confession style posts, where bloggers get real about what's on their minds, the good, bad, and ugly.
No judgment, please!
I confess, I'm on the warpath today. I haven't been sleeping well lately. Something must be bothering my "unconscious" because I've been having all sorts of dreams involving conflicts with friends and family. Bryce has woken me up the past 2 nights, coming upstairs long after I've gone to bed and disrupting my sleep. I may have bit his head off just a tad this morning. Girlfriend needs some sleep.
I first mentioned on Instagram here I've started the Running for Weight Loss app. I've done it for just over 2 weeks now and am feeling really proud of myself. The app provides a guide for interval training, logs your routes, mileage, and calories. I've really been enjoying it. I'm quite Type A and a perfectionist, so I like looking at my logs and seeing how I'm improving my speed. I just started having to do sprints during the workout, and not gonna lie- they're kicking my butt!
On another note, I confess our diet has kinda fallen to the wayside. I will say that we are definitely cooking more which is a huge plus, and when we do cook, we tend to follow the diet. We also have cut out most drinking during the weeks to cut calories. If you read Monday's post, you'll see that this weekend was a complete and utter diet fail.
All that being said, I need to get my booty in gear, because I confess I am really nervous about my bridesmaid's dress for my cousin's wedding not fitting. I know bridesmaid's dresses run really small, but at the shop based on my measurements they recommended a SIZE FOURTEEN! I wear mostly 4s and 6s, y'all. I ended up ordering a 12, because when looking at the measurements the 12 was the better choice according to all measurements except my waist. It should be arriving this month and the wedding is still 2 months away, so at least I have some time to whittle it down some.
I confess, I follow the Beaufort Bonnet Company on Instagram just to get my daily baby fix...and regularly send Bryce screenshots of cute babies.
Speaking of weddings and babies, I confess sometimes I feel like my life just isn't progressing fast enough. I'm definitely not ready for a baby at this moment, but I do have baby fever and as more friends get married and have babies, I'm wishing I was a bit closer to those steps. It's hard not to play the comparison game.
I confess, I think a major spring shopping spree might be coming. I've cut way back on my shopping the last 6 months or so. It's been a good way to save money, but also to get creative with the wardrobe I already have. Now that the weather is warming up and I'm gearing up for all sorts of fun spring and summer events, I'm dying for some fresh new pieces.
I confess, I might be pulling the old high school Spark Notes trick at book club tomorrow night...which makes me feel like a complete failure as book club founder. We've been reading The Secret History and I just can't get into it. For one, it's very weird and it's also really long. It's not that I'm not enjoying it, but I also just haven't been dying to pick it up at nights. I'm going to do my best to read as much as I can tonight and might even go home to read tomorrow at lunchtime. Wish me luck.
What are some of your confessions of late?
Do you relate with anything I shared?
Have a great day!
