True Confessions – 4/11 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


The past few weeks have been above average temps where I live, and as far as my pshyche is concerned, heat can only mean one thing… Ice Cream. Bowls of ice cream. Cones of ice cream. Shakes of ice cream. Dreams of ice cream. I try not to keep ice cream in the house all the […]

It’s True Confessions time people, wakey wakey! How have you been this week? Did you stick to plan? Did you fall off? Because whatever it is, fess it up, clean that slate and start over again fresh, mkay? Here’s my story. This past week, I’ve actually done ok. A couple of weeks ago my fridge […]

I have come to dread when it’s my turn to post on True Confessions Tuesday. Yeah, you read that right. Sure, I could confess that I ate BBQ once this weekend, ice cream twice this weekend, and exercised ZERO the last three days.  Those are all easy fixes in my mind.  The harder thing to […]

As you know, the Sisterhood sisters spent a few days in Baltimore at Fitbloggin. We exercised together and we spent a vast amount of the time eating healthily, since Fitbloggin provided breakfast and lunch for all of us and there were yummy breakfasts that consisted of high-fiber cereals, Eggland’s Best eggs (ohMIgod were those good […]

Tonight was huge for my husband and I. Our baby girl graduated from Purdue University. We are proud and happy and finally done paying for higher education. It is 11:04 and I just sat down at the computer. I was all excited to download (or is it upload) my pictures from the ceremony and I […]

Welcome to True Confessions! If you’re new here, this is the post where we get everything off our chests from the past week, then we throw it out of the window and start fresh. If you aren’t new here, then you know the drill! I was all set to confess to you that I went […]

I confess, I clearly need paid accountability to keep myself on track with my weight loss efforts.  One would think after losing around 70 pounds that I could do this on my own.  Yeah, not so much apparently. I confess that last week I toyed around with the idea of giving up my Weight Watchers […]

I think that it’s a cruel, cruel joke that I happen to be hosting True Confessions for you this week. You see, I was on a cruise last week. Like I said. Cruel joke. I started the week off really well. I had great intentions of not overindulging. I had a plan. Dessert only if […]

Normally my true confessions posts consist mainly of embarrassing choices regarding food. Today, I’m going a different direction. I’m going to talk about my feelings. Buckle up. I’m pregnant and emotional and its not pretty. In less than three weeks, unless baby decides to come early, I will be a mother of two. And truthfully? […]

It’s THAT day of the week.  You know the one where you come clean about the previous week’s transgression, successes, and/or struggles.  I mentioned in my heart to heart  last week that I have been struggling lately.  Life was stressful and so very crazy busy and at times sad, BUT we are done with the […]

I have a confession. I can’t even believe I’m going to say this. No, really. I don’t think you understand. I REALLY can’t believe I’m going to say this. Like at all. Are you ready? OK… *deep breaths* I really wanted to run yesterday. And when I didn’t get to. I was disappointed. I don’t […]

Ah yes. I love True Confessions SO MUCH. Especially when I’ve been eating like a machine. I know, I’m pregnant, I get to eat a little more than usual. Problem is, I’m eating A LOT more than usual. I am ravenous, all the time. I’m trying to keep it healthy and protein heavy, but I’ve […]

Ok, seriously, how can March almost be over already? Is it just me or is this year just FLYING by? Since we’ve landed on Tuesday, you know what that means — True Confessions Tuesday! Pull up a chair (or blog) and let’s get those confessions out, people! Forgive me Sisters (& Brothers), for I have […]

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time to confess! And what a good time to do it, for some of us who celebrate, it’s Lent! So confess away! I’ll start it off. I am tracking calories and I’m pretty hardcore about it right now on My Fitness Pal (my username is Christieo_7 if you want to friend […]

Every once in a long while, I have a really good week. Fortunately, this week was one of those weeks. Unfortunately, I have True Confessions this week, LOL. So. What to do? Do I get really nitpicky about my could-have-been-better choices this week? Or do I confess what went right for me this week. How […]
