1 mile swimming
Inspired by a recent post over at Shut Up and Run (btw my kids’ favorite blog to reference so they can say ‘shut up’), I started thinking about the messages I communicate here. Sure, I talk about failures, frustrations and how I want to use the f-bomb sometimes, but I don’t always get really…well..real.
And let’s face it, I live in the OC so there’s not a whole lotta real going on in my life outside the doors of my house.
And with that, I’m implementing True Confession Thursdays. A glimpse at the realistic life of this working mom of boys who tries to keep it all together one stride at a time.
And so……….The inaugural True Confession Thursday begins with my ridiculously pathetic Sunday night.
-I went to Trader Joe’s straight from the gym while I was starving. #askingfortrouble
-I spent WAYYYYYYYYY too much money because everything sounded far too good. Who needed a grocery budget for the week anyway?
-But since I was sweaty and in workout clothes, I felt it necessary to buy healthy food (yay for external motivation). If I had been in sweatpants, I clearly would have had license to buy whatever the chocolate covered everything I was ogling over down the frozen food aisle. (Why must you taunt me dark chocolate covered pretzels peering suspiciously over the frozen asparagus. You’re just mean!)
-Then the only “fun” item I bought called shot gun on the way home.
-In a sad display of an utter lack of self-control I likely at 2 of the 3 servings on the way home.
-It’s only 1 mile from TJ’s to my house. Oopsies.
-Since I was doing so well, I then decided dinner would be a whole wheat sprouted bagel & sugar snap peas.
-Oh, and a glass of red wine. But we’ll just call that dessert.
Anyone else have a true confession they are dying to get off your chest?
The vault’s just opened for Striding Mom, stay tuned to see what else we unearth.
