I confess… I’ve been eating like crap lately. I’ve been so up and down with weight in the last year or so. I’ll eat good for a few weeks and drop a few pounds, then completely fall off the wagon and gain it back. I’ve just been tired and unmotivated lately.
I confess… I wore a dress without leggings this week and felt NAKED! I almost always wear leggings under dresses, but it has been way too hot lately so I went without on Monday. My dress was just above knee length and I felt super self-conscious all day.
I confess… I have been shopping way too much recently and need to rein myself in. I’m accruing debt and I hate that feeling. I need to get back into the Dave Ramsey mindset ASAP. I might start a new “Debt Diaries” series on here to keep me accountable! Stay tuned.
I confess… this heat and humidity is not for me. Blech.
I confess… I’ve been feeling a bit “off” lately and my creativity and reading have taken a nosedive because of it. My depression kind of ebbs and flows and I’ve been down recently. When I’m feeling like this, I waste a lot of time just scrolling on social media instead of reading, cleaning, being productive, etc. It makes me feel super lazy. Yuck.
I confess… I haven’t been keeping up with my shows this summer which kind of goes hand and hand with the previous confession. I have entire series waiting for me on my DVR and it’s stressful – ha! Just a few that I still need to start: Big Brother, 90 Day Fiance, Counting On, and more.
I confess… I may have signed up for WAY too many book blog tours for July and August. Sorry for the influx of reviews this summer, but there were too many good ones and I couldn’t say no! I’ve had to recruit my mom to help with some of them. She’s been “guest reviewing” for me for years… thanks, Mom!
I confess… I’m trying to find a good balance with my new little business as a Diplcious affiliate. I know how obnoxious it is when everyone is selling stuff online. I genuinely just love the stuff and want to share it. Making a little money would just be the icing on the cake. That said, I need to promote it a bit to help get it off the ground, but have been trying not to be over the top on my Facebook.
I confess… this whole TTC #2 thing has been getting me down and is likely the cause of some of the “off” feelings I mentioned. With both Caleb AND the ectopic, we got pregnant immediately, but things have NOT been so easy since the ecptopic and loss in February. I’m feeling pitiful, helpless, frustrated, and sorry for myself and my son. I feel like my body is betraying me and have been questioning everything. Why me? Why us? Why are there so many incapable parents who pop out kid after kid and don’t take care of them but not us: loving, hardworking parents? I know these things take time so I am trying to be patient but it’s hard. This is my big confession of the day. I’ve been trying to stay quiet and keep it private but it just hurts some days.
Anything YOU feel like confessing on this fine Wednesday? I’m all ears!
