Hump-Day Confessional

I confess...My Mom is dating.  It is weird.  At least she hasn't asked me if condoms come in different sizes.

I confess...I used to have a pet duck named Quackers.  He was leash trained.  I hatched him in an incubator.  He was eaten by a fox.  The end.

I confess...I can sing.  While I have sung in front of thousands of people doing PR for my college, I have never had the desire to sing professionally.  I love to sing loud and proud....unless it is in front of my husband or family (except my kiddos)...then I have SERIOUS stage fright.  This bugs my husband to no end. 

I confess...I have an irrational fear of serial killers.  Sure, they are something to be scared of, but they seriously FREAK me out!  Though I am pretty sure there hasn't been a serial killer that has targeted overweight suburban stay at home mamas....(((shudder)))

I confess...I somehow tweaked my lower back/sciatic last week and have been a total slug since.  I have been to the massage therapist and chiropractor, I have applied ice and heat, I have been taking Advil like it was candy and applying Bengay like it was going out of style.  I am not nearly as far on my packing as I should be.  I am getting so very frustrated.  Ever since I started doing the BFC, I have either been sick or hurting, which is definitely NOT the norm for me.  I have been in bed more the last 2 1/2 months than I have the last 5 years combined.  I am not sure what to make of it.  I have relaxed the reigns on my eating.  My head is not there right now. 


  1. I am so sad to hear that you are hurting! When I started the BFC, I think my aches and pains def. went down. Every time I up my sugar intake I start to get sick again. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Oh Jeeze - you are so funny - well except for the back thing.

    I have had BAD back problems and have not had any episodes since I have lost all this weight. I hope it feels better :-)

  3. I love your posts. There are some really good stretches that will help the sciatica pain. That is a problem area with a lot of women. I know it must be painful so I am sorry for you.
    We had a little duck when I was little too. He met his demise by getting his head stuck in the holes in the box:(
    You will get back to the mental game, acknowledging that you aren't into it is a good, positive thing. You truly will feel better minus sugar!

  4. I confess - I love your hump day confessionals! Sorry to hear you hurt your back though. Back pain is the worst and I hope you feel better soon.

  5. I always look forward to your hump day confessionals as well. :) My neighbor had a duck when we were growing up, but we didn't like the duck because he was alway waddle after us trying to bite us.

  6. So sad about the duck...I loved my pet duck (mine died too... a tragic drowning accident--true story)
    And I'm sorry to hear about your back pain.
    I've been sick for a few weeks. I think my very poor, overly carbed/sugar diet has been the culprit. I'm back on track today.
    I totally understand when you head just isn't in it.


I would love to hear from you! Please leave any thoughts or questions you have and I will get back with you as soon as I can.
