Friday Confessions 5.31.13

It's Friday AGAIN! Time to confess and come clean before the weekend.

Here goes:

I confess that it has been 2 weeks since I have confessed. Last week I stuck to my plan all week long. I did not give into the temptation of Key Lime pie and Eclair cake on Monday, nor did I cave to chocolate cream cheese cake. I was making headway. Then, a holiday weekend. Things fell apart a bit.

I confess that I ate out several times, enjoyed every bite, spent an evening with friends for Memorial Day and enjoyed my food then too.

Then stepped back into full plan on Tuesday. I confess, I haven't been as steadfast this week, and I can tell a difference. I feel sluggish and yucky, so with the monthly lunch outing over with as of today, I can refocus and re-commit.

I confess that I tried my feet at running this week. A three mile run/walk with a running friend. I confess I was very thankful that she reached out to me. I needed a push to see what I could do.  Did my foot hurt, oh, you betcha. Was it worth it? Oh yes. I saw this on facebook this week:

And I am still very frustrated that I am not running like I want to be, like I was this time last year. So maybe, I am still a runner. I was beginning to wonder.

I confess that I have switched from my beloved Black tea to green and herbal blends. It wasn't a conscience choice or effort, it just kind of happened. I confess that my new evening tea has me quite enamoured. This Hibiscus tea is delightful! With a drop of raw honey, it it tastes like I'm really cheating.

Lastly, a good friend of our's has listed a unique vacation property in Northern California. We stayed there some years ago, and have very fond memories. If you find yourself headed in that direction, check this place out. I confess, and promise, that you will be glad you did. It's a bit rustic, so you've been warned, but also a place you will never forget.

  1. That's so true about running injuries! And key lime pie sounds good! I should resist but I AM pregnant so... ;)

    1. Well, if you're pregnant, that means you can have whatever you want, right?

  2. At least you were doing great until the holiday weekend! That's got to count for something ;D
    Yay for the run! I really need to start running, I just haven't gotten that push to start yet.
    That's a real cute vacation house! Hope you have an amazing weekend!

  3. OK...I've only been running for a few weeks (and I haven't been running very far!) but already more sore heels are ticking me off! I know how you feel about injuries - it sucks when they slow you up!!

    Happy Friday :)

  4. Republic of Tea has some of the best teas. So tasty.

    I keep saying this week after week, but I really need to start running again. I hope your injury lets you get back to it soon.

    Thanks for linking up for Friday Confessional. Have a fabulous weekend.

  5. I confess that I don't think I could ever give up black tea! That Redwood Tower looks like a fun place to visit!

    1. I never thought I would give up black tea either. Maybe this is just a phase, I still have a cabinet full of black! Have a great weekend!


I do love comments - thanks for leaving me one!
