Confesh Sesh Time

Let's get to it . . . time to admit my shame.  
Y'all.  If I ever got pulled over, in an accident or even had to get out to save a stray dog during morning school drop off, I would die of embarrassment.  I probably should care more, but I really don't.  I'm a night owl and then up half the night wrestling with the ever re-adjusting dog in the bed so I'm not wasting a minute of my sleep to get up and make myself look presentable to drive the kids to school.  I literally roll out of bed, zip on a coat (because well, no bra), put on slippers, rinse my face and put a dab of moisturizer on (because it's the winter and skin care is no joke), put my hair up in a clip and go get my kid up.  Bam.  So yes, I'm making an actual choice to look a hot mess.  Not to worry, I come home, shower and put on real clothes.  Most days, anyway.
I hate eating breakfast.  Anyone else?  No, just me.  I mean I like breakfast foods . . . just not when I first get up.  I like to sip on my coffee and check my social media and blogs and not chew anything.  I make my kids eat, and it brings me pleasure to make them something, but I'd rather pass.  I'm making protein shakes lately to sip on after coffee trying to force myself to "eat."  
Which brings me to this counting macros business.  OMG.  It's so much work.  Thinking and weighing and measuring and recording and eating all the protein.  I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but I'm so darn lazy.  I'm still trying though . . . progress, not perfection.
I feel like I've been doing a good job at biting my tongue lately.  I'm like silently high five-ing myself several times a day it seems for just not telling people how I really feel.  In the end, it's not worth hurting some one's feelings.  I don't have to agree with your choices or actions, just my own.  You do you, boo!
Can we talk about bloggers who make nothing but lists of advice or "top 5 whatever" posts?  Or ones where I can't find their actual writing from all the ad content?  Or ones that have to many sponsored posts so they get free stuff?  Or all they talk about is one subject and don't share any real life thoughts?  Well, I have started un-following blogs in my feed like that because I don't want to waste my time when there are so many folks out there sharing their life and experiences.  I like it when folks are real.  Tell me about your life and occasionally throw in a list or sponsor post or workout update but seriously, not all the time.  I feel so rogue . . . did I really just say I un-followed some blogs?
Geez, nothing super revealing today . . . just a few of my thoughts.  Hope you have a happy hump day . . . I'm counting down the days until this weekend because we get Winter Break next week.  No alarm clocks for me . . . squeee!

Linking up with my other friends who are confessing today!  
More Coffee Less Talky
My Blog


  1. i totally agree with you re: blogs that are nothing but "5 reasons" or advicey blogs. STFU i don't need advice unless i ask.

  2. I am quick on the unfollow. I don't have the time.

    I eat when I get to work, which is like about two hours after I get up? I sort of like to eat two hours later on the weekend too. I never thought about it much but that makes sense.

    There are many times when I am out in public for a quick stop at the store or wherever and I'm like please god do not let me have to look another human in the eye when I look like this.

  3. I cleaned out my blog following list over a year ago and it felt so darn good!!!

    There have been a number of mornings I've prayed some bad driving teenager doesn't hit me so I won't be seen looking the hot mess I am in the mornings.

  4. I am weird about breakfast. I work out right when I wake up at 430am and have a little water with my work out. I shower, then sit down with a cup of coffee and blog....then I eat breakfast around 7am before I leave. So I get not wanting anything right away. I am so interested in macros and stuff but too lazy to figure it out right now, so I understand your struggle. And I have unfollowed so many people I used to love because their shit is so boring. I care nothing about you telling me what I should do with my Instagram account, or my blog, nor do I want to read about your free maxipads. LOL! I don't mind some sponsored posts because bitches need to get paid, but I don't want to see them daily or even every other day! Be real, show personality! That is what I want to see!

  5. I'm with you on the holding your tongue thing. I've been trying so hard not to spit out words like a I Normally do. It's a work in progress lol.

    Happy Hump day <3

  6. i don't mind the random list or how to or whatever but i want to read about peoples lives. i know we all want to share things sometimes that we think might help others but in general, i don't follow you for that. i might *search* for that if i am looking specifically, so i am aware it needs to be out there somehow, but i don't have to follow you. also, i feel like a lot of those bloggers that are like that.. they just don't care about connecting anymore. i know one blogger who is huge and makes a ton of money and she is one of my greatest blogging friends, because it didn't change her. another, i used to talk to her every day and now i'm lucky if she comments on a post randomly once a month. i'm not mad about it, but i do this for the community / stalking people / making friends, and i am not a 'fan' of yours, i am a 'friend' and when you treat me badly, i'm gonna go. vent much? haha.

    i hate eating breakfast as well. i don't like to eat in the mornings. i can do something small, or a smoothie, but that's about it.

  7. I feel the same way about breakfast-I just don't want to eat first thing in the morning!

  8. You know I love breakfast but I can't eat right away. When I wake up I just need coffee!! I've been trying to that list thing but I've trying to make it personal where I'm saying I am doing this and give tidbits of why so it doesn't seem like I'm a robot! lol. =P

  9. I am so with you on all of this. I need an eating plan that is basically eat this not that because I am lazy AF. Bloggers... how do they do it with all the lists and product reviews??? Tell me about you effed up family, your dreams, your most embarrassing moment. I have to bite my tongue everyday, mostly with other parents... ugh.

  10. I do not like eating breakfast right when I wake up, etierh! Give me awhile to just sip my coffee first!!

  11. I actually do have a lot of reviews/giveaways up on my blog. I also write about my mess of a life. I say, it's "Different strokes for different folks". I love breakfast food but also don't like to eat as soon as I get up. I also don't want to be woke up just to eat!
