Flame Free Friday Confession

I used to belong to a chat board and every Friday we had a Flame Free Friday Confession. Sometimes good stuff was shared and other times it would get a bit out of control. Either way it was always fun to see what people would share for the week.  Stuff from I pee in the shower to the ridiculous amount of food they ate that day. Either way here are my flame free confessions for the day.
  1. This morning I washed my 2 eggs down with 4 oreo's, not sure why but it just happened. You know those moments when wake up out of a fog and say why did I just eat that. Huh, I have no idea.
  2. I am been considering cutting my carb intake and since I started thinking about it all I seem to eat is carbs. Maybe that is a sign that it would be a good idea to eliminate some.
  3. I love Halloween, but I am just not into it this year. I think its because it falls on a Monday.  Halloween needs to always fall on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. It just makes it more enjoyable and easier to celebrate.
  4. I skipped my workout yesterday, it was a couple of miles and strength training. Instead I watched TV then made my way to bed at 9PM. Clearly I needed the sleep.
  5. I don't want to run my 10 miler this weekend. I think I am scared of it, or scared of hurting myself again. I think I will take it two miles at a time and evaluate as I go......I am not going to lie but I am kind of looking for an excuse to not do it.
What would you like to confess on this flame free Friday?

Life As I See It [Fitness, Health and Happiness]


  1. Jen, you can do 10. Nice and slow and easy. Come on girl!

  2. You asked for it....

    1. I don't want to run the half marathon this weekend.

    2. I'm sick of people with know it all attitudes. Especially those who have not had enough experience with what they're doing/haven't reached their goal to give me that attitude.

    3. I'm super excited about my new running group...I've not told anyone I joined a group...until now.

    4. I only want to hang out with people who share the same enthusiasm for life, good health, healthy eating, and running. Everyone else can bite me.

    5. I'm beyond, beyond, beyond sick of people with chips on their shoulders. Done. Over it. Get out of my life!

    Phew. It felt good to get that off my chest. lol

  3. I love your blog. I've been lurking for a few months. You motivate me! I'm a new runner, I've been running 15 weeks. Just ran my first 5K last weekend.

    I confess:
    Today I ran 7 miles at the gym, then drove through McDonalds and got french fries and a huge Diet Coke.

    :) and I don't care.

  4. Do the 10! you'll be so glad you did. Break it up just like you said.

    Confession: I'm all for kids and crafts and all but Thing 1 has been cutting out snowflakes so much that we've coined 'snowflaking' as a new verb. I'm buried in the friggin things and wish she'd stop already/

  5. Confession-
    I am always shocked when people post pictures of themselves sitting in their ice baths...because I am so ashamed of the soap scum in my own tub!

  6. I think your approach of taking it 2 miles at a time is GREAT! Chances are once you're out there you'll keep saying to yourself, "ehh .. I can do two more." Next thing you know you'll be done with 10! Ha .. keep in mind that comes from me who has never run 10 miles in my life!

    One confession for me this week, I wish there were some cool runner bloggers here in SLC. I would love some running buddies here.

  7. While training for my FIRST half ..which is coming up on the 29th...I have dreaded a bunch of runs.

    Excuses: It's too hot, it's too cold, it's too windy, I'm tired, I'm hungry, I have no energy for it, I just don't want to do it! BUT.....I always made myself do it b/c I knew the darn half would be coming one day...AND I always was soooo glad I did it once it was over!

    I am dreading our long run tomorrow..12 miles...its' super windy here today and I am praying the wind dies down tonight.

    Do your 10 on Sunday...You can and many others can't!


  8. Good luck on your 10 mile; you are going to do fine. Just take it (literally) one step at a time. I know the feeling though...esp the day before the race...not wanting to run it. You will be glad you did once you get to mile 4 or 5 (or 10)!!

    I confess that I just ate a whole bag of dried apples. I couldn't put it down. I think I ate 400 calories in about 4 minutes.

    I confess that I am already getting less motivated about training for a marathon, even though I still have 7 weeks of training left. However, I keep wanting to sign up for more races anyway.

  9. Give your 10 miler a chance, but give yourself an out if you need to.

  10. :) Fun!

    Oh, let's see, I'll say:

    - I stayed home from work today for no reason other than that I am sick of my job, and my new iPhone was being delivered.

    - I am rubbing my last two nickels together, but I still bought the iPhone, and I don't care. I have been iPhone-less for well over a month now, and it is my phone, my calendar, my camera, my iPod, my internet, my email, my very connection to the world. I have been climbing the walls every day without it. When my old one died, I decided I would use it to break the addiction to smart phones. It did not happen. :)

    - I think that's enough dirt on me for today. :) Have a great weekend!

  11. I'm scared of my 10-miler tomorrow, too.

    I wish my 7th grader would start being more responsible.

    I wish my 2 year old would just potty train herself :P

    I'm scared that my 9-year old will remain overweight.

  12. Oreos and eggs...ewww! A combination I never would have thought of LOL

    I can't think of anything to confess or maybe I should say can't think of anything to confess that I'm willing to share ;)

  13. You can do the ten. I found myself dreading them a bit training for my recent half, but was always so proud of myself for finishing them!

    Confessions? I eat brownies for breakfast a lot more than I care to think about.
