True Confessions :: An Ode of sorts (and giveaway)

 

I remember one time, not so long ago

On Twitter, I heard some chatter to and fro

About a new snack, someone gave a tip,

and they were all loopy about something called popchips.

 

Whatever, I thought, I have a  favorite snack.

These, popchips or whatever;  they sound kind of whack.

Nothing can beat my favorite baked tortilla chips,

so forget, popchips, I will not like them Sam I am.

 

Then one day, I went to my grocery store,

and there at eye level, I saw popchips galore!

I walked by them two times. Or was it three?

OK, fine! I will try them! What really would it hurt me?

 

I opened the bag as soon as I got into my house

and I wasn’t even really quiet like a mouse

and OH MY GOD did I like what I tasted?

Why a great big smile on my face was pasted!

 

I have tried every flavor, and they are all so great.

I am so sorry that to the popchips party I was late.

Please forgive me dear popchips, you are my fav.

Forever and ever, about you I will rave.

So I sit here today and I confess to you,

Dear popchips, oh, how my love for you is true. <3

 

I know that isn’t a “real” confession because, who are we kidding? Popchips are AWESOME! So, a couple of real confessions are that last week was my birthday, I ate popchips at 9:30 in the morning, I had way too much other food too, but I don’t feel bad about it because food on my birthday is calorie free.

Also? Did you note the title? Yep, you read that right! Popchips has been so awesome that they’re going to give one of you lucky readers a month’s supply of popchips! So, let’s get to the rules!

To enter:

1. Post your True Confessions for the week! We want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly!

2. “Like” popchips on facebook!

3. For an additional entry, follow popchips on Twitter!

 

Giveaway ends on Friday, June 24th at 10 p.m. Central! A winner will be randomly selected and announced on Saturday morning!

Now. Let’s hear those confessions!

Disclosure: I was not paid by popchips to write my most awesome poem. My opinion is my own. Thank you to popchips for sponsoring this giveaway!

    This is my first true confession, so I’m not sure if I’m supposed to write it here or somewhere else, but here goes.  1) We’ve been eating out way to much, and I want to cut it down, because I’m sure it’s going to effect my diet. 2) We went to Red Robin for lunch on Saturday, and I got something that I guessed to be around 600 calories (I’ve been aiming for 300-500 per meal) and when I got home and checked the calories, it was over 1,100 calories!!!  I was shocked, and instantly depressed! 3) I did the SJ Bootcamp yesterday, but I’m not certain that I did everything correctly.  I’m worried that I’m not getting the full benefit if I can’t do the exercises.  I did think I was going to die after I was done, but I’m not sore (yet) today, so now I’m not sure.

    If I was supposed to post these elsewhere, please let me know and I’ll fix it!!

      Rachel, I don’t think I did half of the bootcamp exercises correctly yesterday! It’s my goal to focus on and correct my technique for some of them tomorrow!! I wasn’t dying after the work-out yesterday, either, but I’m definitely feeling it today… so I guess I did something right! lol

    Happy belated birthday!

    My true confessions – I’m aware that my coworker knows I’ll be leaving soon, but I refuse to bring it up until he mentions it.  Also, I’ve already checked out of my job, only 17 work days left!

    My confessions? I’m not ready for tomorrow. I’m worried I’m going to step on the scale, see a number doesn’t reflect all my hard work, and get discouraged.

    My confessions are the roasted chocolate/vanilla, strawberry & toasted coconut (3 different kinds) I ate on Sunday along with hot dogs that were loaded with salt. I could taste the salt but I kept on eating them :/ Last night my son left oreos on my bed, I ate a handful (they were mini) before he came and got them.

    Confession 1:
    I had diet pepsi today. My first soda in 3 weeks. I didn’t feel guilty about it at all. It was good. I used moderation.
    But tonight I’m feeling seriously cranky. Now feeling guilty that the two may be related.
    Confession 2: I was going to get  a bear claw (that I wasn’t going to eat today) but opted to let my daughter get a flower cookie instead.  
    Maybe that is why I’m feeling cranky ;)
