These Are My Confessions

In honor of Usher, Becky Bloomwood and our fave hot bloggy mama, this post is dedicated to CONFESSIONS.

Confession #1: I ate this breakfast of PB+B+C toast at 7:25am in brown tights, Medusa hair and a MN Gophers t-shirt.  I hope that gives you enough of a mental image to enjoy without giving you blood-curdling nightmares.

Confessions #2: I sometimes lie about exactly how good food is.  Unless something is ridiculously gross, I usually pass it by as being good.  This doesn’t happen often, but it’s true.

Like today, I had high hopes for this soup – it’s Amy’s, and it’s Indian.  What’s not to love?  It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t like I will buy this again either.

Confession #3: Sometimes I don’t wash my veggies.  Like today, I peeled the carrots but definitely did not wash them first. I know, sound the food blogging police and lock me up Martha Stewart-style right now! Insider trading and not washing your veggies are both heinous crimes after all.

Confession #4: As much as I believe in portion sizes, I don’t.  I guzzled these 60 calorie tubes before you can say Kate-Gosselin-wants-to-be-in-movies?!  Say that three times fast without laughing.

P.S. Apple Strawberry is AMAZING.  It has currently overtaken Apple Cinnamon’s #1 ranking.

Confession #5: I don’t floss as much as I should.  This has nothing to do with the milk chocolate caramel cookie I ate below. After going to the dentist this morning, I feel as though I really need to shape up.  What’s the best way to do that? Announce it on your blog for the whole world wide web to read.

Confession #6: I don’t normally like chocolate + fruit together.  My two exceptions?  Chocolate-covered strawberries and this dessert-esque yog mess:

1/2 cup homemade organic Greek yog
3 squares Lindt Touch of Sea Salt Dark Chocolate
sprinkle of flax
dollop of raspberry preserves
drizzle of agave

Confession #7: Thanks to your awesome feedback, I found a “High Sensitivity” setting on my camera which seems to have helped out my crappy picture taking (due to winter’s ominous darkness).  I mean, this roasted acorn squash with a drizzle of maple syrup and cinnamon tasted better than it looks, but at least the pic is clear!

Confession #8: I have discussed this before, but it seems as though making a to-do list actually makes me get less done.  Maybe it’s because I have never liked people or to do lists telling me what I should do.  So here is me leaving my apartment and getting things done…WITHOUT A LIST!!!

Alright kiddos, pony up because it is your turn.

Give us your confession of the day! I just gave you eight!

I love the PB+B+C name of your breakkie…I’m a fan of formulae. hahaha I agree with confession #3. I more often than not “forget” to wash my fruits and vegetables, then get berated by EVERYONE for it. :P My motto is what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger. hahahah

I never say something is yummy if it’s not. hahah i’m blunt like that, but HEY that soup…good to know Holly! Thanks for the heads up!

My confession is that from last Saturday – Sunday I did not have a single fruit or veggie :( Eek!
I hear you on that soup, I was so excited for it and then didn’t think it was great…

Erin October 28, 2009 at 2:31 pm

LOL, I totally loved reading your confessions!

I don’t wash most veggies either.

And.

I had to unbutton my pants at work today, just to be comfortable. :(

i loved this episode of confessions of an everythingtarian. why is it that you always have some creative spin on blog posting? ah, because you are epic, that is why. i need to remember to floss too.. eep.

my confession? i forgot to pack my toothpaste and take it to my new house so i didn’t brush my teeth this morning. and i hated it. i did have scope! so i swished for a good 4 minutes. but still. ugh.

i know, we need to chat, i have been so busy at work.. i hope things calm down soon, but the way it is looking.. i will be busy until turkey day!

i love you H$!

I love your confessions, especially #2 & #3. That’s too bad about the soup, I would have expected it to be good too!

Ok, I have a horrible confession (but what good is a confession unless it’s a juicy, horrible one, right?). This afternoon when I was making cookies I ate 2 cookies worth of cookie dough! And now I feel a little sick. :(

I don’t wash my veggies either if I peel them. I don’t always wash my strawberries either and I eat them pretty much every day!

jessica October 28, 2009 at 6:25 pm

Confession: I just ate the most delicious, but simple yogurt mess! Oikos + a WARMED UP soft-baked blackberry graham kashi bar! Mmmmm.

Confession #2: I wasn’t a fan of the amy’s curried lentail dal either! Tried it over the summer, thought it was ehh. Her lentil soup is FAB though, and so lentil-y! I had that one last night!

And don’t worry…I don’t floss enough either! Let’s start holding each other accountable, okay?? :)

jessica October 28, 2009 at 6:27 pm

ps! i’ve never seen such a divine-looking yog/chocolate-y dessert in ma life! i have GOT to try that combo.

let’s talk soooon!! XOXO

Katie October 28, 2009 at 7:16 pm

Sometimes I don’t pick up the dog poo! I’m horrible, I know.

Cindy October 28, 2009 at 7:19 pm

so I posted my own confessions on my blog.

I feel better now.
got that off my chest!

Good lord, I could write a book, but I’ll be brief.
-I have spent more time stressing over and packing my “snack” bag for this stupid overnight work retreat than I have on my clothes bag or the work involved.
-I always regret when I post and often want to delete my blog.
-Sometimes I pretend to pick up the dog poop instead of actually doing it if the yard already looks like crap (fertilizer, right?)
-I could eat some variation of oats every day, all day.
-I haven’t had a “real” boyfriend in seven years. Am I that horrible? No, I’m just that annoyed by most people (but not you, as…)
-I am jealous of you and your fabulous blog :)

Ruthie October 29, 2009 at 7:46 pm

I love Fanta Orange
I drink a pot of coffee on Saturday and Sunday with Sugar-free French Vanilla creamer
I feed my dog, Lucy, people food a little more than I should
I drink out of the carton when the children are not around
I have to have one foot out of the covers so I can breathe, lol.
I have cut mold of cheese and used it. (I say, it is no different than blue cheese)
