Three Thing Thursday

12 May

Workout: I actually did the workout I posted yesterday today! And if you haven’t tried it yet. Do. It. Now. You will be a hot sweaty mess but your swim suit will thank you! I substituted elliptical for running intervals since I am still not running.  Hopefully I will get cleared by the PT this weekend.

I am getting ready to go home for the weekend.  My brothers girlfriend’s brother is getting married.  Oh and it is the weekend before my birthday (which is Monday in case you need to send presents 🙂 ) so hopefully I will get to pick out a present or something.  Turning 23 isn’t very exciting.  I have a ton to do this afternoon; laundry, transfer all my stuff from my old computer to my new one, pack, and clean.  I hope I don’t run out of time!


For this week’s Three Thing Thursday I want to talk about food confessions.  Let me just say that I have weighed about the same weight give or take 5 pounds since college.  I still wear clothes I bought in high school.  So no matter what I do when it comes to eating it doesn’t really seem to matter, yes you can all hate me for saying that.  I think a combination of good genes, consistent exercise, a fairly active job, and good portion control has helped me to maintain this weight without any issues.  That being said here are three confessions I feel like getting off my chest.


  1. I had fro-yo for dinner last night. I have been craving it for so long but have been too lazy to walk and go get it (it’s about a mile from my house).  Last night I took a different train line and therefore got off at an earlier stop and walked home.  The new fro-yo place happened to be conveniently located right next to the train stop.
  2. I had fro-yo fro dinner last night..AFTER I had a cupcake for lunch.  Okay there was also tuna and crackers and an apple at lunch..but still..SUGARAHOLIC.  I was doing so well during lent with my no chocolate and less sweets and now I eat them all the time. But really..sorry I’m not sorry.  Even though I am not running 20 miles a week anymore I still working out regularly so if I want to have a cupcake and fro-yo in one day..I will.  Oh and I had a baby twix with my breakfast.  Call the sugar police this girl needs help
  3. I was extremely proud that I was able to finish an entire bag of baby spinach.  Normally I eat half the bag and the other half goes bad.  There are only 3 servings in a bag.. But either way I finished it! Go me! At least I had something green this week to balance out the mass amount of sugar.
On another note how awesome is this picture..
Haha I saw that on Facebook (and it originated here)  and thought it was so funny.
And now time to finish transferring all my stuff and get to packing!
Are you a sugar addict or is it just me?

    Haha! Yes, I’m a sugar addict, which is why I can only allow myself small splurges at a time because unlike you, you lucky girl, I gain weight super easily.

    I always make it my goal to finish the bag or tub of spinach. I usually get pretty close, but it drives me crazy when I have to throw it out! I hate nothing more than throwing out produce!

    I think the key is that you ate the yogurt for dinner, as opposed to after dinner. 🙂

    I am a serious sugar addict! I have to have something sweet every night after dinner! It’s a must. And I’m always squeezing honey into my yogurt at breakfast or having some sugary cereal at lunch.

    You’re so not alone… sugar is required if you don’t want to see me flip out at the end of the work day. Hard lesson learned. :p

    I actually like you even more for admitting you can eat whatever you want. I mean, yeah, it’s unfair, but it makes me feel better to know I’m not the only one who thinks it’s too hot to eat anything besides ice cream for dinner. I am 100% addicted to sugar. No fooling! My therapist told me I had symptoms of withdrawal after Christmas.

    I also weigh pretty much the same thing I weighed in highschool, and have jeans from highschool.

    I like sugar, but I try to refrain from to much. I’m afraid It will get out of hand. I did eat icecream last night though. Red Velvet cake by Ben & Jerry’s. OMG yum!

    Good Luck @ PT this weekend! hope you get cleared!
