Sometimes a well placed swear word can be really, really funny.

I don't know why I'm on Dailymile.  Peer pressure?  Probably.

I worry that I might be a hoarder sometimes.  Why do I need to keep all of these race medals?  And bibs?  What's the purpose?

I'm pretty sure that sleeping in every day for the last nearly 3 weeks has murdered my previous running routine.

I want to eat healthy.  I do!  I just love sweets and fats too much.  Dang that top triangle in the pyramid that you are supposed to "use sparingly".

Speaking of- what is up with how often they have to change the food pyramid?  I can't keep up with it.  In my mind- we're still talking the four food groups and there's none of this pyramid garbage.

Mathew McConaughey.  He is so hot.  And his last name is ridiculous to spell.  Thank goodness for Google.
Sometimes my kids will be talking to me for an entire minute before I realize that they are talking to me.  I remember my Mom doing this and it drove me nuts as a child.  Look at me.  You do become your parents no matter how hard you try.  Just accept it and move on.

I've been tracking my calories using the myfitnesspal.com app on my iPod. I'm obsessed.  Did you know that a tres leches cake from Cafe Rio packs 860 calories?  I know this because I ate one, and then about DIED when I added it to my food journal.


I wish I could go to the movie theater every week.

And get popcorn and Raisinets.

I can't remember the last time I cleaned my bathroom.

The Bachelor- though raunchy at times- makes me laugh so hard that I can hardly stand myself.  Those women.  Where do they get these women??!!

I'm going to go eat some cookie dough now.

I think Matt M. looks like an old man just waiting to lose his teeth...and that he is in constant need of a shower. (I did like him in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days..and Sahara)

I'm on Myfitnesspal too! I'm going to friend you:)

All the cool kids are on Daily Mile:)

I hate cleaning the bathroom and constantly try and out wait my husband on who has to clean it.
(I won last time)

I hate going to the movie theater...but I also plug my ears and close my eyes whenever there is an awkward moment or I think someone is going to kiss.

I want to eat healthy too...but I love chocolate and candy so much.

I also might be a hoarder. If I'm not I'm one family trauma away.

You keep your race bibs and medals because they are AWESOME! I have all of mine:)

I love your confession posts! I need to know more about his Cafe Rio place! I keep hearing about it's deliciousness. Maybe I need to come to Utah for a visit!!

I assume raisinets are the same as Canadian glosettes? Milk chocolate-covered raisins? If so, those are my FAVOURITE! I could eat a 10-pound bag.

Have an amazing day!

As always, I LOVE your confessions. Many of them ring so true with me too! Wish I could partake of some cookie dough with you! Because, I have the same problem, I really do want to eat healthy, I like healthy food, but I just like sugary fatness a little more. Dang it.

I loved so much about these confessions that I don't even want to add anything more. I love you Amylee :)

...oh fine I'll add one, cake is worth it and YES, where do they get those girls?!!?

Andrea said...

Loved this post- also love myfitnesspal. I wouldn't have lost the "baby weight" if it weren't for this app. You make me laugh!

jclay said...

Haha... i saw the comment above from me and was so confused... "I already commented?! Did I do it in my sleep last night? Is my memory really getting that bad?!" :)

Anyway, I really do love your confession posts... so that part at least could have been me... okay and the cookie dough part, too!

Totally with you on the food pyramid (especially the top) and the well placed swear word and the bathroom cleaning and the movie theater... yeah, I can pretty much agree with all of this.

I already don't listen to people until about a minute into a conversation (or longer)... my kids won't stand a chance! :)

Amy @ Run Mom Run said...

I just keep hoping that if I wait long enough the food pyramid will change and sugar will get its due recognition. I mean its not like eating too much sugar ever hurt anyone right?

Suz and Allan said...

Love raisinets too! They are actually really yummy with popcorn.

Unknown said...

Hahahaha, it's weird how many of these I agree with. You are wonderful. And not alone in the weird shin department. Just so you know. :/ UGH. Not gonna stop us, though, eh!

Jessica said...

Ugh, the bathroom cleaning! So gross right now...And totally agree about the Bachelor women. And Matthew Mc..... = Yummy. :)
