Confessings

Well hello there Wednesday you got here quickly. I'm writing this at 1 am because I'm still awake. So this will be a rush job, I'm just warning you. Since I'm on a little 'get my tiny self a little bit healthier' kick, I thought my confessions should focus on that today. Jumping right in...
1. I have packed lunch every day for the last two or three weeks with the exception of last Friday. Which also means I actually have been cooking. It's amazing! Two wins: I don't have to spend money and I know exactly what I'm eating! Lets hope I can keep it up.


2So Friday (the only day I didn't pack lunch), I had fast food. Well ... fried chicken with a salad. You can tell I've been eating super clean for weeks because my tummy 100% did not like the fried chicken and rejected it ... you can use your imagination. 

3. With the exception of some lean shakes I drink, the only other liquid that I intake (for now) is water. Remember when I complained about drinking a gallon a day? Well I'm eating my words because I'm drinking maybe more than that. Who knew water tasted so good?! I definitely don't want to go back to drinking soda, but my wine days shall soon return ...


4. I cancelled on my friends who wanted to drink and watch the Brazil/Germany game today (sidenote: what an absolute upset of a game) just so I wouldn't be tempted to drink a days worth of calories in scotch. I love scotch and today I refused scotch. Who am I?


5. I missed an entire 10 minutes of the world cup game this afternoon because I stopped to buy two new (really cute) water bottles for workouts and home. Yup.


No really where is the Krystal?



Have a great Wednesday guys!




Linking up with Kathy and Liz !

  1. I could not believe that game today. I was watching at my desk, closed the window for 10 minutes to respond to some emails, come back and it's 5-0. What?! I'm a Germany fan, so I was happy but I never like a slaughter, especially with a great team like Brazil. Way to go with bringing your lunch I need to get on that train too. I stopped drinking alcohol during the week and I swear I actually don't crave it anymore, nuts. Problem is, I'm sloshed after one drink whenI actually do drink. HA! cheap date.

  4. so proud of all the amazing healthy choices you're making. i haven't bought lunch while at work in over 3 years and let me tell you - BIG TIME MONEY SAVER. i'll go out for a healthy meal but i refuse to buy the swill they serve downstairs.

    thanks for linking up!

  5. I talked myself into having ramen for dinner last night instead of going to Red Robin for a burger.
    I haven't decided if I made the right choice 12 hours later.
    Wait, I went online shopping this morning.. That $10 burger just went to a brand new double hammock.
    Ok, ramen = worth it. :)

  7. I too drink water like it is my job! I have always had an addiction to water.. usually if I go more than 30 minutes without a sip I get really thirsty! Also, I love scotch, scotchy, scotch scotch, here it goes down, down into my belly, MMM MMM MMM! Haha! Keep up the good work my friend! You help keep me focused!

  11. Ommggg that game yesterday! I was at my desk with my mouth hung wide open in disbelief. What a fricken ass-kicking. And yay for cooking and prepping lunches! It seriously does save SO much money. I'm still trying to stick to just water...but my wine....just calls out to me...can't resist some days haha.

  12. #2 : as much as that totally SUCKS, it's also really AWESOME. that happened to me a few times.. i would be eating healthy and all of a sudden even the dumbest of dumb (bad) foods for me made my stomach hurt. thats a good, bad feeling!

    have you noticed any differences in your skin with the water drinking? i tried it for awhile but all it resulted in was 8,000 trips to the bathroom to pee :)

  14. Great job on meal prep and water! I need to drink more water!

  15. There is nothing that makes me feel more put together than drinking water from a cute water bottle!

    Congrats on the great choices! My husband packs lunch every day and the people in his office are always envious.

    ReplyDelete
  16. You go! Water intake is huge.

    So is saving money and eating all the good things.

  17. I usually pack my lunch four out of the five days during the week. Gotta keep it real!

    Go you on getting your water and passing on drinks. I drink plenty of water...but I have a hard time saying no to a beer or three on the weekends!

  18. ok I see you Kay!! Get it! Isn't it weird how fast our bodies get used to certain foods and unable to process others? I have had this similar fried-chicken reaction... not pretty at alllll

    ReplyDelete
  19. Keep it up, lady! Told you that you provided some (f-ing much needed) motivation to me - worked out 2 of the past 2 days. Need a new water bottle to keep it up though, maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've been doing the only water thing too!! It sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Once you get into drinking loads of water you miss it - a lot! Good for you x

  22. Do you put anything in your water like lemon or cucumber? I'm pregnant and my doctor told me to drink 2 gallons of water a day and it's such a chore for me!! :(

  24. I am so not into the Soccer stuff that's going on right now. Even when US was doing well. Congrats on taking your lunch and cooking! I've been doing really good at that! Today's the first day in a week I didn't bring something and that's because I ran out of bread and leftovers so I'll get some on my way home. I love water!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great job with the cooking and drinking water! I have a 1L water bottle and have found that its massiveness really helps me make sure I drink a ton of water.

  26. Congrats on the healthy eating and drinking this week and for making your own meals! Scotch and wine are definitely two of my weakness!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So proud of how well you're doing and how committed you are to this healthy lifestyle makeover. I promise, it gets easier and easier :) oh and UGH that GAME!! My god, I had no words

  28. Bringing your lunch to work saves so much money!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Look at you go!! I am impressed most with the bringing lunch. I try and try but rarely am able to get a good streak going.

    ReplyDelete
  30. YESSS! Just the motivation I've been looking for! While I'm pretty sure I won't be packing healthy lunches anytime soon, eating less fast food is my new goal. On top of the high water intake you've inspired me to do. And yeah, I got a cute water bottle for free that I'm using!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Way to go! All of these things are awesome! Even that you had a day where you got fast food, it's not really an issue. When I went on a big health kick a year or so ago, I still ate a pizza like once every 2 weeks and made that my "day" where I could do whatever I wanted. It works!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Umm that game was ridiculous! Seriously I've never seen a soccer score so high! But good for you girl for skipping out on socializing to avoid the temptation to drink! It's so tough to do so that's totally awesome you did! I need to cut beer out of my diet.... ugh.
