confessions…

Posted on Jul 24, 2012 in Lifestyle

1. I flex my “guns” in the mirror all the time. I was so weak for so long and had absolutely no muscle tone that I thought maybe I never could have defined muscles. I thought maybe I got defective muscles at the human factory. Nope. I just wasn’t using them! It’s so freakin’ crazy to me that my arms are actually kinda almost a little bit ripped now. Heavy weights are good, kids.

2. I never wash apples before eating them. I figured my pant leg is good enough, right?

3. I’ve been checking Groupon Getaways pretty much daily. Which is actually just torture, because we just bought a freakin’ house, so we don’t have any extra money to go jet-setting. But, but, but, I wanna go here. Or here. Or even here.

4. I really want a parasol. I’m kinda kicking myself for not buying this paper one for $6 at World Market.

5. I need a pedicure. And that’s not something I say very often. I’ve had maybe…3-4…in my entire life, because I usually feel like they are a little too extravagant for my frugal tastes. But my tootsies never quite recovered aesthetically from walking 40 miles through Chicago. I need a professional. Who knows how to operate a sandblaster.

Do you have anything to confess?

  1. I am a firm believer that the good mental health that comes from getting away from the daily grind is always a good investment! We just went on a Groupon Getaway earlier this month to Mexico. I had used Groupons for lots of local stuff but this was the first trip we used it for. It was definitely worth it!

    • I totally agree! 100%! We did a beach vacation March and it was AMAZING. :)

  2. 1. I want chicken fried steak. I have not eaten anything like that in at least 7 years and it is calling my name. I have done really well avoiding it at all costs but I live in TX and it is everywhere.

    2. Our real vacation coming up involves me running 13.1 miles on the day before we drive home for 12 hours?!? Who does stuff like that.

    3. Pedicures happen every two weeks in my household. With as much as I run NOBODY would like it if I gave that up.

    Great confessions!

    • Oh gosh, I love chicken fried steak something FIERCE. Mmmmmm! With a really delicious white gravy? YUM!

  3. I wipe off my apples too instead of washing. Always did it as a kid. My husband thinks it’s terrible.

    • Haven’t died yet! :P

  4. I don’t wash any of my fruit, I’m pretty sure that it won’t kill me but last Sunday morning my mother found a spider in her breakfast! The not washing fruit thing comes from her so she has only herself to blame!

    • AH! Now that would freak me out. Eeek!

  5. 1.) I flex my guns at my husband…while naked. It is the furthest thing from sexy I can imagine which is why I NEVER do it in the mirror. Heh.

    2.) I don’t wash any fruit. DIRTY GRAPE EATER IN THE HIZZ-OUSE!

    3.) If you do a Groupon Travel, please post about it. The idea creeps me out, but I still totally want to try it. Preferably a SCUBA diving trip to Belize. A girl can dream.

    4.) Parasols scream Southern wedding to me.

    5.) My baby sister is a stylist at an upscale salon and I see her every 4 weeks for a pedicure. I try to schedule her last appointment of the day. We take our time, have a glass of wine, and generally laugh our butts off. Plus she makes money and my feet don’t look like they belong to a hobbit. WIN WIN.

    • I’ve actually heard of quite a few people doing Groupon Getaways and loving them! And I am SO jealous of your pedicure hookup.

  6. I don’t wash my apples either. :) Another confession: while I loooooove to travel and go as much as I can, I get travel anxiety a couple days before a trip no matter where I’m going. I could be going three hours away or across the country. I would think that as a seasoned traveler that I would be over that by now! I’m weird.

    • I get a little bit of anxiety, too. I get a lot of “What if I forgot something!?!” anxiety. Babyface has to constantly remind me that (a) I probably didn’t forget something and (b) If I did, we can buy it when we get there.

  7. I have never had a pedicure in my life. My feet are so foul, I won’t even pay someone to look at them.

    Maybe you need one of those fish pedicures? With a parasol to shield your view.

    • I imagine those fish pedicures are so crazy tickle-inducing. I giggle just thinking about fishies nibbling on my heels.

  8. Confession: Sometimes when I’m in the bathroom I flex my arms too. Seeing progress from weight lifting is awesome. :)

    • Isn’t it? I actually think it’s better than seeing weight loss progress.

  9. I actually JUST got a pedicure last weekend. I’m in the same boat, I’ve probably had 4-5 my whole life. But all that marathon training + just getting back from the beach had my feet looking rough. I think I’m in the minority on this one, but I like it when they use the blade to take away the dead skin…weird?

    • Nope! Not weird. That’s totally the whole reason I want to go. It’s the one thing I can’t really do myself.

  10. If you’re craving a pedicure, I’m guessing you still have all your toenails. I’m down to about 7.5 at the moment. The last time I got a pedicure, the stylist patted my big toe and told me “it will be okay, it will grow back someday.”
    That being said, I really want to treat myself to a massage, but I haven’t been willing to drop the big bucks yet!

    • I’ve never actually lost any of my toenails. I thought I might after my first 20 mile training walk because of all the downhill walking I did, but nada!

      I’ve also never had a massage! I just need a whole spa day. :)

  11. Yeah i do a gun show a couple times a day haha..not gonna lie cuz i.love the way they’re looking:)

  12. Love flexing my miniature guns!

  13. Confession: My boyfriend and I have been trying to plan a vacation for a few years now. I’m just so indecisive on where I want to go. My confession is that I keep looking at other people’s posts on vacations (or ideas) and want to steal their vacation. Costa Rica? Sounds awesome. :)

    You should totally splurge on the pedicure. Go for it! It’s definitely cheaper than a vacation. And think about all the money you save since you do your own manicures. Get the pedi and it will help you forget that your not on the beach..maybe? Well, it might take a margarita too.

  14. Love your Confessions, and really love your iphone cover! Can you share where you purchased it? Thanks!
