Friday Confessions 8.31.12

Confessions, confessions....

I confess that I won't get to age 45 without needing glasses. For the past 2 years my eye doctor has told me that my vision is slightly worse than the year before, but not bad enough to do anything, yet. Yet is here. She actually told me I could get two pairs of glasses, one pair for driving, and one pair for reading. She also said I could just pick one, or none if I wanted to slide by one more year. I opted for reading. You see, I tried on an old pair of my hubby's the other day, and wow, there really was a difference!!

My new specs have red frames (of course), and hopefully they will make me look smart, as well as read a little better.

I confess I finished week one! Check it out here.

I made a scrumptious cake this week for a birthday. I confess that I wanted to eat more of it than I did. It was a Peanut Butter Fudge Cake.

I confess that I am enjoying my 8K running training program. So far I've gotten all the suggested runs. Only three weeks left until Ache Around the Lake!

After running for over a year, I finally feel I can call myself a runner. To celebrate this fact I bought myself this:

I love it!

  1. I confess I need reading glasses, but I try not to wear them. I am going to have to go get some soon.

    I am so proud of you for sticking with the running plan. You will have a PR this year!

    Love the necklace!!!


    1. If I can do better than last year at Ache, just by a second, I'll be happy.

  2. I think I'm going to be upping my distance next week--I ease into it slowly, but hopefully, for a nonrunner, I will be doing 2 miles three days a week soon. Then I'll have to stop running outside for the winter and I'll pick it up next spring when the snow is gone.

    1. Good for you upping your miles. I personally love running in colder weather, but here in SC, it doesn't really get super cold.

  3. Wow that cake looks amazing!! I would not be able to eat just one piece!

  4. Oh my gosh, that cake could literally bring me to my knees...Wow, it looks amazing!!

    Have a great weekend! :)

  5. Congratulations with finishing week one. Woo Hoo for you!

    Running around that lake... what a view.

    Have a nice weekend!

  6. I am so jealous on that 8K! HUGE congrats on that. Maybe if you feel like it, you could maybe share what training system you're using??!!

    That lake is gorgeous!


I do love comments - thanks for leaving me one!
