Last Confessions for 2009! – The Shrinking Jeans of Heather


December 29, 2009 By heather

Are you comfortable? Because these confessions are going to take a while…

  • I am sitting in the bathroom as I write this. NO, not doing THAT. Just because I need a change of scenery and it is cold and there is a very nice space heater in the bathroom. Yes, I’m strange. Shut up.
  • Admittedly, I’m a grinch. But I did a super fantastic job this year of getting all Christmassy in the name of my kid/family.  So, it is a great big sigh of relief that the holiday season is drawing to a close. Yes, I’m one of those people who is HAPPIER after Christmas is over!
  • Today I am purging my fridge. This is what is going into the compacter, then covered with bleach, and smashed into oblivion: the ever evil Little Smokies, cheese, butter flake rolls, sugar cookies, truffles, peppermint bark, mixed nuts.
  • Then, I will go grocery shopping and purchase only high fiber, low fat healthy food. Lots of veg, lots of fruit. I am going to attempt to buy no processed food. I want to try eating whole food as much possible.
  • My husband is not going to like the ‘no processed food’ thing. I will tell him to keep his stash of crap food somewhere I can’t find it. Like Mars.
  • I had some not very nice thoughts about some relatives over the holidays. But I know I’m not alone on this one. I was very good. No one was physically injured. I consider this restraint on my part.
  • EA Sports More Workouts? I’m playing MAD catch up. I will finish early next week if I work out every single day.
  • Good news? I got a hand me down treadmill. Bad news?  I forgot how much indoor running sucks. But, in a pinch, it’ll do.
  • About five different people in my life are pregnant right now, and my family is starting to ask when we’re having another (my son turns two next month).  When does this pestering end? Menopause? I’ll have another kid in due time, people! I’d like to get to a reasonable weight and stay there for a bit! And I’ve got a 1/2 marathon to run. LEAVE ME ALONE.

I am SO ready for the new challenge to start tomorrow. I need a major kick in the butt. And I need my mind to be on board too. Luckily, I have this strange feeling coming over me…motivation. I know. Weird.
