Confessions {The Random Ones}


I confess…

|| I was secretly hoping no one would show up to my Monday morning 6am BODYPUMP class. It was a long weekend and I wasn't feeling my best so when it was 5:58am and no one had walked through the doors my heart skipped a beat.

|| I actually felt better when someone showed up at 6:01 and I got the blood moving. It was weird teaching only one participant but it was a great experience in coaching and cueing. And I even got a compliment.

|| Men get PMS just like women, they just fail to understand it. #dudes

|| On Tuesday I gave my notice to my BODYPUMP manager and it made things feel even more real. This seem to be moving fast and slow right now and I'm so grateful for everyone's support.

|| I FINALLY GOT MY CHICK FIL-A milkshake and it was EVERYTHING I dreamed about.


|| My evening was derailed on Monday when I came across the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe on tv. I don't know WHAT it is about that movie, but I can't seem to ever turn it off.

|| I spent much of this week rewatching Downton Abbey because I'm so sad it's over. #goodbyefavoriteseries

|| After experiencing the AA Admiral's club I don't think I'll ever look at an airport the same. #nolongeracommoner

|| I don't understand how you mamas do it. While we were in Cincinnati this weekend I was plum worn out by our two nephews. Seriously worn out. Kids are on the horizon for us and I have to admit there is a lot more trepidation than I had anticipated. Thankfully, Kathy was able to talk me off the ledge, but I have to say HATS OFF TO ALL THE MOMS OUT THERE! Y'all are rockstars!

|| The sugar monster has hit in full force and sadly I indulged this week. #bah

|| Seeing the email that I reached GOLD LEVEL with Starbucks brought a smile to my face. Yes, I know it is a bit of a sham but I received quite a few gift cards the past few months and used them [and grocery store Starbucks] to claim my gold status. #feelfreetojudgeiwontblameyou #ialsofrequentnonstarbuckscoffeeshops

Now I desperately want a Chick Fil A milkshake... the best!! And I've had the worst sugar craving the past two weeks, it's been horrible for my waistline. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

I sort of like it when I take a class and there is only one or two other people...makes me work harder! I haven't had a starbucks in a while and today I'm indulging!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

emily @ a little bit of emily said...

Chick Fil A has such good milkshakes...ahhh now I want one! I have been craving sugar, too...and been indulging! Need to get back to eating better!

Evelina said...

I still need to try a CFA milkshake! It's a struggle when the nearest location is 2 hours away. Congrats on reaching gold status! Alllll the coffee is yours now! Xo, Evelina @ Fortunate House

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

LOL you're welcome! kids are tough but awesome at the same time. you're never really "ready" but when you do eventually have them, you find ways to cope. it's actually quite amazing how much parents are able to find it within themselves to cope with shit they never thought they could.

Deena Simair said...

Confession: I don't know what Chick Fil A is. But now I'm dreaming of milkshakes!

Sara Elizabeth said...

Ugh. You have me craving a CFA milkshake now. And I'm definitely trying to avoid the sugar monster this week... so there's that. It is true, airport lounges are definitely a more enjoyable experience... We had a 3 hour layover in Philly coming back from Europe last year and I swear that was the only thing that saved me.

Courtney B said...

You're notice?! Oh friend, I am SO BEHIND!! I need to be caught up! Also, I wish I could get that one on one in your body pump class! I'm lacking motivation right now but I still have a ways to go to get back in shape :(
Chick Fil A has the best shakes!!
Kids (specifically mine) kick my butt on the daily! Luckily they only come one at a time (for the most part) and you take things dad by day, minute by minute and somehow survive ;) I can't wait to see you be a momma someday!!

kerri @ cheshire kat said...

ain't no shame in wishing no one would show up on a monday morning. there's no way i could do it! and its funny my coworkers just sent a link about coffee and ice cream milkshakes now at chik-fil-a. ha. now i want one!

Chick-fil-a milkshakes are sooooo yummy. I gave up sweets for Lent so that looks especially good to me. Yes, kids are a lot of work but totally worth it. I have three and cannot imagine my life without them but man a lot of days are just plain exhausting.
xo, Traci

You know I have never had CF milkshake and I eat there at least 2-3 times a week. Male PMS is real as we have discussed. I want to give them Pamprin and some chocolate for real. Love you!

Nikki said...

Kids are no joke! I am a mama and sometimes IDK how I do it! LOL! Enjoy the free life while you have it my friend!

Teaching to 1 person is always so weird!

awhite said...

I think I need to swing through a Chik-fil-a ASAP! Yum!

Good luck battling the sugar monster, haha- I am in the SAME boat this week!

Men TOTALLY get PMS!!!

Katie Elizabeth said...

Myra said...

And just like that, the need for a CFA milkshake has moved to the top of my MUST-have list when I get home next week, lol. Also? I took BodyPump for the first time today and OMG, it was awesome. I wish I could take one of your classes. Wanna come to Amsterdam & teach? Ok, great ;)

Liz Jo said...

Working out is good for the soul! If only I took my own advice....

Yes I swear man periods can be worse than women sometimes!

Some mothers can fake having it together far better than others. Those mothers need to tell me their secrets! Because I'm usually scrambling to get myself together on a daily basis.

No gold level for starbucks is the best! #noshame #goldstatus

Kristina (Ms.Modify) said...

Lindsay at Lindsay'sSweetWorld said...

Dang you and your Chick-fil-A milkshake!! There you go again getting me NEEDING ONE! I had finally gotten it out of my head... Lol.

Emily said...

Oh those Monday morning classes must be hard for a lot people to attend. I'm not sure I could do it. lol And yesss Chick-fil-a has the best milkshakes and their nuggets are pretty amazing too!

Katie @ Running With Wine said...

I always secretly hope I'll be the only person to show up to a class, I thinks it's because I want the extra attention and help to push myself. Glad you enjoyed the milkshake!

Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders said...

Men seriously do get PMS, and they don't understand! I've always maintained that they have that time of the month too! Congrats on reaching gold status! It'll be so much fun when your fancy card comes in the mail!

A Little NW Charm said...

I love Starbucks Gold Status...I just can never get there since I don't go there nearly as much as I used to. #firstworldproblems I will have to try a milkshake from Chick-fil-A when they finish putting it in (our first one in Oregon-yah!)

Sparkles and Lattes said...

I have been dying for a Chick-fil-A milkshake or anything from there. I have been trying to get to California asap to have it (since we don't have one here) and it hasn't happened yet. Congrats on gold status. I am still so far away.

Jen said...

Yes to men having PMS!!!! They definitely can't admit it haha.

Kayla MKOY said...

I'm sorry but now all I want is a CFA milkshake!!! ;)

Emily said...

Mmmm, now I'm insanely confused and can't decide if I want CFA milkshake or Starbucks. The struggle!!! ;)

Cara (Kindly Unspoken) said...

Kids definitely keep you on your toes that's for sure! People always ask how I stay in shape, and I'm like um running around chasing kids all day long is pure cardio!-haha :)

I am so jealous that you get to have chick-fil-a. Another blogger got me REALLY wanting it cause she posted about it often but the vacations we have taken to the US did not have places with chick-fil-a.

True story, i research airports before i go to them so i am not so lost/confused and know where i can eat. I was SOOOO excited that one finally had a chick-fil-a; only to get there and it was on the OTHER side of security. I am canadian so to go through customs for that just wasn't worth it. Two people then came on the plane with their chicken burgers and i got to smell them. I was sooooo upset the whole flight. LOL

I want a good milkshake now! Been almost 2 years since i had one.

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

oh man, i HATE chick fil a milkshakes. hate hate hate them.


perhaps if i say it enough, it will be true?! AS IF they are amazing and now i want one.

girl I feel you on kids and i try not to think about it too often because it is terrifying. i know we'll be okay and everything will work out etc etc etc but it is really scary for sure.
