Confession time

Good morning!  How are you doing? 

I’m kind of liking this whole taper thing a lot more than I thought I would.  As much as I love training, it feels nice not to feel the self imposed pressure to get my run or ride in.

Is it too early to start packing?  I already started my packing list and made a trip to Costco for a few travel things like a case of water.  That’s a life saver when we’re on the road.


I also made a pit stop at the outlet mall to exchange a top at Nike and there just happened to be a Hollister outlet there too.  Winking smile  Hollister is my favorite clothing store.  I love the beachy, relaxed look and their extra low rise bottoms, which I love. 

I picked up 2 long sleeved tops for $5 each.  Score!


I have a confession to make.  Okay well several… 

About a half hour before Mike get’s home every day I go on this crazy cleaning rampage.  I have a thing for exploding when I’m getting dressed, making lunch or whatever I’m doing.  I don’t consider myself or Mike messy people.  But sometimes I don’t have it in me to clean as I go.

Every once in a blue moon Mike surprises me by coming home early then he’s shocked to see sweaty gross workout gear laying in the kitchen floor, dishes piled in the sink and Bam digging every toy he owns out of his toy box. 

Hey man, at least I’m not the only one.


I don’t like using reusable bags at the grocery store only because I feel like I am forced to.  Pretty much the entire bay area has outlawed plastic bags and are forced to only carry paper bags.  They charge 10 cents per bag and I am way too cheap to pay it so most of the time I have something like bacon, deodorant, razors or banana’s in my purse.  Those punks aren’t going to get my 10 cents, yo.


I wore linen pants to Whole Foods the other day and felt like I totally fit in.  I was only missing Birkenstocks, a hemp necklace and a American Express Black card.


One of my favorite things to eat is Ramen Noodle Soup, but only the chicken flavor with cock sauce and lemon juice.  As long as I don’t look at the nutrition label, I’m good.  Ignorance is bliss.

I always want to adopt the dog with the most um, character.  Only 3 legs & missing an eye, tri pod, you’re coming home with me.


New readers, that’s my dog Pookie in the above pic.  I lost her last August and still miss that dumb, little furry face every single day.

Okay so this one’s going to sound totally weird and I don’t mean for it to be offensive at all but, I have never wanted kids of my own.  I’ve known this since I was a kid myself.  I do absolutely love them and don’t have any problems hanging out with them.  It upsets me when people find out I don’t want kiddos and automatically think I hate them.  So.not.true.


These pics are a couple years old, but I got to babysit my niece, Blair bear.  I’ll always remember that day when all she wanted to do was play at the park and listen to Justin Bieber Baby.  <3 


I am a very decisive person.  In fact Mike came home one day last week and declared we needed a new couch.  So we went to exactly 1 store looked around, sat down on one, looked at each other and bought it.  I bet we in & out in less than 30 minutes.  They are custom building it so we’ll probably get it later on the week.

Your turn!  Spill it, what’s your confession?

Are you decisive?

What’s your favorite junk food?

  1. I really need to find a Costco to join, and now I would really like some watermelon thanks to that picture. I have a really hard time turning down pizza, swedish fish, or junior mints. And I am decisive too! But sometimes it verges on more impulsive for me 🙂 I hope you have a great day!!

  2. We are the same but opposite on the kid issue, if that’s possible! I have never been a kid person and don’t like most kids. They drive me crazy! I never wanted kids but, welp, it happened and my kids are the best thing that’s ever happened to me. But I’m still not a kid person in general and there’s maybe 5 kids on earth I can stand-besides my own 🙂

    • Your comment is the best!! I can totally relate, I don’t like every kid I come across but generally speaking I don’t mind them. Just not the cart licking, nose picking crybabies. No thanks.

  3. Hmmmmmm….confession….I’m a hard nut to crack. I don’t easily let my guard down and let people in, so most people just assume I’m a big ‘ol you know what.
    I am very decisive, and people who aren’t drive me crazy – just make a decision and stick with it!
    Favorite junk food – peanut m&m’s and sweedish berries

  4. I am horrible at making decisions. It takes me ten minutes to figure out if I want a beer or wine and then another 10 on what kind. Ha.

    Burgers are my favorite junk food. Namely when they come from In N Out. Though I do love me a fancy schmancy bison or elk burger 😉

    I am socially awkward and stutter a lot.

    • Haha you are so funny! You can always order another drink. 😉 Isn’t In N Out the best ever!? Had it today. And I am so with you on the socially awkward thing. I don’t even want to be my friend.

  5. My confession is that I horde fabric. I am a seamstress and this is a common affliction. I am very decisive, keep ALL fabric. My alltime favorite junkfood is probably red licorice. i’m confused about your choice of sauce on the ramen noodle soup though……

    • Ha I love your decisiveness! Cock sauce=Sirricha
      We call it cock sauce because there’s a bird on the side. 😉

  6. Fave junk foods: Starburst jelly beans, airheads, Big League Chew bubble gum (I love candy) and PIZZA!

    I’m not decisive – I wish I were!

    • Okay now you have me wanting to try the Starburst jelly beans. I love airheads big time, especially the watermelon flavor. And totally with you on the pizza. It’s the bestest thing ever!

      • Yes, watermelon airheads are so delicious. I think you only get Starburst jelly beans during Easter time, but I could be wrong. Just get the regular – the different flavors are not as good, and they are totally worth it. Sometimes, I use them to fuel my runs! 😉

  7. I’m with you on the kid thing, do you get dumbfounded stares and random comments about how you aren’t a woman and a freak of nature instead? Lol I think I’ve heard them all when people ask why we don’t have kids yet. I figure I have a 35 year old toddler and two fur kids I’m set 😉

    • Yes! My husband is 40 and we get the “when are you ever going to have kids?” question all the time! I have 3 dogs, thankyouverymuch 🙂

    • Oh my gosh all the time! You are so funny! I’m going to start using your line!
      I feel like getting married, buying a house, having kids is the American dream, but for me it’s not. People look at me like I’m an alien or something. It’s kind of awkward. Ha!

  8. I can be extremely indecisive! My husband always jokes about my indecisiveness. Love random posts like this!

  9. I get strange looks when I say we are a “one and done” family.

  10. I’ve never wanted kids either- don’t feel ashamed! It’s the people who think you shouldn’t have that choice who should be ashamed.

    (My confession is I don’t like kids. There are some I’ve met who are ok but only for brief periods of time!)

    • I feel like that a lot of times too. As much as I love my nieces, they go home at the end of the day and not my home.

  11. My confession: I’ve been buying used running clothes off of Ebay. Please dont think i’m gross but my money goes to my senior dog rescue. their meds are expensive so i budget my running gear. I’m obsessed with running skorts and i’ve picked up some super cute ones. cant afford new ones.

    Ive never wanted kids either. decided that early on. i can be wishy washy on some things very decisive on others.

    Fav junk food: never met a chip i didnt like. favorite right now is wheat thins dipped in homemade hummus!

    • There is nothing wrong with scoring used gear! Hey, it can be washed.
      I adore your love for pups.
      And yes, we are chip loving twins!

  12. Never wanted children either. I can honestly say at this point in my life that I would not have made a good parent. Have a hard enough time telling the dogs no. Instead I just say wait till your father gets home 😉
