Confessions Part II

I have some things to confess to you.  Hopefully you will still be my best friends and maybe even share some of your confessions with me.  You can read (if you dare) my first round of confessions here. I am warning you.  Read at your own risk.

1-I don't think I should be allowed to have children until I can successfully take care of a dog for a year without loosing it, feeding it properly and bathing it regularly.  It wouldn't be fair to the child.

1a. My sister never asked me to babysit her kids until I was married to Billy.  I don't know to be offended that she doesn't trust me or grateful that I married someone that is responsible.

2. Making weird faces for the camera isn't something I started doing for the sake of the blog.  It is more natural for me to have a creepy look on for the camera than to smile.  At least Billy does it too.  PS yes those crazy long eyelashes are extensions and I guess I should confess that pre-marriage I spent 2/7ths of my salary on them each month.

3.  Burgers are delicious and I will continue eating them until I am old and gray.  Even though I act like I am going to one of Billy's favorite burger joints for him and his happiness, secretly, I want a big ol' burger and fries sometimes......there is always tomorrow to eat broccoli.

4. I got my first running side stitch yesterday, it still hurts.  I am a baby and it made me cry and lose my gatorade.  Pointing to where it hurts.

5. I really enjoy making my brother-in-laws feel uncomfortable by doing things like picking my nose in public.

IMG_0997.JPG

6. I break out into weird dancing moves everywhere we go.  If there is music, I will dance and no one can stop me. (Mexican Hat Dance below)

IMG_1061 33.jpg

7.  Billy catches me red-handed all of the time........whether it is chocolate all over my fingers, me in a coma with an empty Costco sized bag of skittles on my stomach or trying to sneak eat a sandwich during church without anyone else noticing or getting jelly on my dress.

What is something that you used to spend a lot of money on but now realize that you could have saved that and bought more food or running shoes with it instead?

-Eyelash extensions, jeans that cost more than my couch and 24 diet cokes a day.

Do you get cramps/side stiches when you run?

-This is the first time ever and it won't go away.  Maybe it is appendicitis or something.....

Time for some confessions about YOU!!!

I actually got my first cramp in a long time the other day. booooo!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:28 PM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

Ha! Look at that! #1. I get on here for 10 minutes and i"m lucky enough to be #1 on here. Wooo hooo...just like old times before you became miss Famous bloggy person. I confess that I ate a large amount of pizza yesterday before my repeat 400's and I felt not so energized. I was just thinking about the money I spent on getting my hair done...the same amount I'd pay for a new pair of running shoes!! ON my way home last night I called my husband about this exact thing. How funny that you mention it. Never again will I spent $100 to get my hair highlighted when I can just be natural and buy good running shoes. Well, maybe on occasion.

I own a lot of clothes Ive never worn. Such a waste! I used to fluctuate in sizes a lot, and now I cant even wear most of it. But I refuse to give it away because its BRAND NEW! I buy a lot less new clothes now that I am married (and own a house!)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:29 PM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

What?! And I still get #2?! What is up with your readers today Janae? I thought surely that by the time I was done with #2 that I would be like 20 down on the comment list. Good grief, what's going on?

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:29 PM , Anonymous RunnerCouple - Sara said...

Side cramps stink! i hope you are feeling better! The one thing I will never give up is Chinese food - I know it's not good for me, but at least once a month I have to have some :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:30 PM , Blogger Tricia said...

I can't believe I'm going to admit this...but when I was young (and stupid) and lazy, and something would get stuck on a pan..I'd just throw it away and buy another one. This happened a lot :) Once I had a sink full of dishes and people were coming over. I didnt want to mess with them so I chunked them all.

Funny, I'm super frugal now and never leave a dish in the sink.(ok, the no dishes in sink thing is a lie hehe)

confession: i had a burger and fries today too. red robin. YUM!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:33 PM , Blogger ShortSkirts said...

I used to spend way too much money on clothes. Ok I probably still spend too much money on clothes, but its less. And i've finally learned to only buy stuff i'll really love and wear a lot. and not just because stuff is on sale.

I sing sometimes when I run, its really weird and creeps people out, but sometimes i'm totally just feeling a song.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:35 PM , Anonymous Steph said...

I could save a fortune if I wasnt so addicted to chewing gum... and drinking coffee.

Hm, some confessions. I'm a clean freak. I make weird faces all the time too. I'm a completely outgoing when I'm with friends and I'm the shy-est girl in the world at work. This week, I left the house with slippers on. Oh and the latest one, I had a bad self tanning experience and now my hand looks well, bright orange haha.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:35 PM , Blogger Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

Man, I used to get side stitches so badly! Somehow I grew out of it.
I never spend money on anything so I can't join in on the fun today. Boo. I'm really cheap ("frugal").

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:36 PM , OpenID lolzthatswim said...

Oh girl. I got a side stick once and I tried to do that thing to rub it out and tripped and fell on the dirt trail. (Of course the neighboring schools male xc team was practicing too...) and I had to run with grass and dirt stained hot pink spandex for another 6 miles.

Win.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:37 PM , Blogger Angie said...

Confession: I used to spend a TON of money of tanning. I would buy the expensive tanning sessions and like $100 bottle of lotion. Haha! I don't do that anymore though!

I don't get side stitches very often. They say you get them when you're dehydrated.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:38 PM , Blogger alicebakes said...

spent a ridiculous amount on diet soda. if i didnt purchase it every i would have so much money to fritter on more fun necessary or luxury items like speciality nut butters!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:38 PM , OpenID runninghi said...

I used to have a terrible habit of buying clothes and never wearing them, therefore making my closet crowded with clothes that still had tags dangling on them. I also have an addiction to flip/flops (known as slippers here in Hawaii) but still only wear the same 2 pairs over and over again.

No side stitches unless I drink a lot right before a run.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:38 PM , Blogger Laurie said...

I get side cramps every so often and they hurt! Sometimes they'll stick around for a few days making it really difficult to run. I've wasted a lot of money on fingernail polish in my day trying to find that exact right color. I seriously have a whole drawer full of basically the same color but still none of them are "the right color"... and they're all really old! Tricia's killing me with the dishes in the sink thing... ha ha

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:40 PM , Blogger middleagedrunner said...

I used to get wicked bad stitches but now (when I feel one coming on) I just raise my arms for 5 seconds or so. It works, I swear!
I used to spend a butt load of monney on clothing. Not NO MORE SUCKAHS. Unless it if for work or running.
I also used to spend a lot on coffee- now I make my own. I still spend a lot on occasional vacations (need em) really good beer (need it) and horse/running stuff (work. and ummm, need it!!??)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:42 PM , Blogger Emily said...

I own 5 pair of jeans that are no less than $200 each. It blows my mind when I think how much money I've spent. But on the other hand, I still wear every pair all the time, even the 1st pair I bought 6 years ago because the quality is THAT good. Frugality is my middle name now though.

And I get side stitches all the time, but am not the runner like you. Or even a runner. Kinda hate doing it. Sprinting was always my thing. You can have the distance. haha =)

Ever had one from crying so much? I remember I was 10, at summer camp, and had a huge crush on a boy, things didn't go my way, and I cried and cried to the point of a side ache, but I kept calling it 'cramps' (not knowing what those really were at the time) the counselors were all confused and didn't know how to handle it until they figures out what they really were. Silly kids. ((sorry for the novella)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:43 PM , Blogger Blonde Ambitions said...

I'm a newbie runner, & I still get tons of side cramps. I'm not sure what causes them for me, but my guess is eating/drinking too soon before I run.
And, I could outfit an army with all of my clothes. I used to spend a RIDICULOUS amount of money shopping, but I'm working on it. :-)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:49 PM , OpenID fitchocoholic said...

I don't usually cramp up or get side stitches...
Confessions:
I have a super dry sense of humor and enjoy seeing how much crap I can say and have someone believe me...=P
I also wander into the kitchen at all times to swipe some random yummy snack.
I have a secret cookie stash. =D

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:51 PM , Blogger Victoria Elizabeth said...

I used to spend WAY too much money on acrylic nails... I still love them but now I use the money to put towards registration fees for all of my races! (and new running gear, and well everything else that I seem to find a reason to buy!)

I get HORRIBLE side aches, I am not too sure why, but without fail I get one every time I run.

I will confess that I do have a running accessory addiction. My husband fears going to a store with me because I will always find a new shirt, or shoes, or earbuds, or anything I need!!!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:56 PM , Blogger Ashley said...

I spend a lot of money on running. This past weekend, I was getting dressed to run and Husband was doing bills. He looked up and said 'I hope you have a REALLY good run.' Why? Because our credit card reflected 3 pairs of running shoes, 3 race entries, 2 knee therapy appointments, and a Sports Chalet bill. Ooops! In all fairness, he runs too! Half of that was his...or almost half.

Confession:
I went to court yesterday afternoon (I'm a lawyer) and never went back to the office. I snuck into Panera and read a book for an hour. It was WONDERFUL. :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:57 PM , Blogger Rose said...

Sometimes I eat straight salt.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:57 PM , Blogger Sarah said...

haha great post! In college my one girl friend and I spent waaay too much on candy at Walmart. What were we thinking?

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:57 PM , Blogger Stefanie D. said...

Confession: I had not one...but TWO Kneaders sugar cookies yesterday. I think I have a problem.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 4:58 PM , Blogger Michelle said...

When my husband and I were dating, we spent wayyyyyy too much money eating out. It took us a few years to realize that when you eat out all the time, it's not that special and it's usually not that good, not to mention it makes you fat. Now that we are poor and don't eat out much it really feels like a treat when we do it!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:01 PM , Blogger Katy said...

Girl, I also make weird pictures at the camera! I love it! Haha!

I dance to music in my head ALL THE TIME. Everyone says I'm retarded, but I don't care. It's so much fun!! :) I think we would be BFF in real life!!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:01 PM , Blogger We are Ben and Rebecca said...

CONFESSION: I hold my pee until it hurts. Peeing is a waste of time. Sometimes I'm jealous of my daughter cuz she pees wherever she is, without stopping. And I KNOW my son hates me for teaching him to use the bathroom. Oh come on, don't act like you don't feel that way.

Children do NOT equal responsibility. It should. But it doesn't. I mean, I have two kids and still wish I could pee in a diaper. How responsible is that?

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:03 PM , Blogger One Crazy Penguin said...

I don't get them often anymore. I used to get them all the time when I played college ball. For me I think it has to do with speed. Basketball was all sprints, all the time...with no break. Running long and steady keeps my sides a lot happier :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:05 PM , Blogger Pam said...

I LOVE that you are as big a dork as I am! LOL I, too, am guilty of busting a move at very inappropriate times.

And those red moccasins in your Mexican hat dance picture? Priceless.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:13 PM , OpenID nanosandc said...

I used to spend alot of money on haircuts-not anymore.

Also used to spend alot of money on coffee. Not anymore.

Now I spend money on running gear.

:)

I am so happy! I am going to meet my sister at Show Clinic! I havent seen her in months, your post about your sister made me miss mine heaps.

I love your lashes, BUT I read that olive oil makes them grow fatser so i do that and it works.

I replied to your tweet re: side stiches

They suck :( Sending you net hugs.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:14 PM , OpenID nanosandc said...

Its meant to say Shoe clinic. Anyway! Yah!

Bottled water! We now have a Brita filter and refillable aluminum bottles. Better for the earth and the wallet.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:26 PM , Blogger Mamarunsbarefoot said...

Stomach cramps very, very rarely.

I have to sleep with a fan!!!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:27 PM , Blogger Stefanie said...

I confess that I spend wayyy too much money on face products. I'll use it for a few days, then I think it doesn't work, so I buy something else! So bad! Right now, I've been using the same for a month (go me!).

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:28 PM , OpenID drkgood said...

Confession: There is nothing weird or confession-worthy about me.

(Now you know full well that is not true.)

Watching Heavy makes me feel good about myself. And makes me want to change my last name to Perfect like the trainer Beverly Perfect on the show. There is nothing intimidating about a trainer with the last name Perfect. At all.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:30 PM , Anonymous Corey @ the runner's cookie said...

My brother (who runs for his college team) gets awful side stitches all the time if he's not careful - he says they are awful, and sometimes they kill his races! Hope you don't get anymore!
Something I've spent way too much money on in the past? Coffee at Panera, clothing, and expensive granola!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:30 PM , Blogger Stephanie said...

Confession: I used to think paying $30 every two weeks for new acryllic nails was worth every penny.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:37 PM , Blogger Stephanie said...

I used to get bi-weekly pedicures, until my fiancé saw how gross my feet are anyway and told me to stop wasting our $$$

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:38 PM , Blogger ashley & sundance said...

Loving all these comments! Omigosh.

Girl. I had horrible side cramps today on the treadmill. Ugh. Talk about a downer run.

Hmm... confessions... i love harlequin books. Cheesy, totally unrealistic romance, but so entertaining. :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:45 PM , Blogger Julia said...

i have gotten side stitches twice and both times I think were because I ate too much and too close to a run...I also think it had to do with not being hydrated enough..

Confessions: it bugs me when things are odd numbers. the tv my dad got me ONLY increases in positive volumes and I secretly think it was made just for me. I will ask someone to change the volume if it is on an odd number. Also...I CANNOT skip dessert...it gives me anxiety. And I literally cannot talk myself out of buying something when I want it...I can delay the amount of time until I get it...but cannot talk myself out of it.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:46 PM , Blogger Savannah said...

I spend way too much on magazines. More than I care to count. And on organic Annie's mac and cheese.

Be careful with the side stitch - the last time I got a bad one, it was the beginning of a kidney infection!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:47 PM , Blogger Katie said...

I love the red Toms in your Mexican Hat Dance pic, very cute! Sorry about your side stitch you may need to hydrate a little more? My crazy confession, I eat an entire box of red only Mike and Ikes, yes a box only filled with reds and pinks, almost every day!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:55 PM , OpenID lovelymissanne said...

Omg. You are so cute. Its scary how much alike we are. Having worked at Victoria's Secret for the past 5 years, I spend WAY too much money on cute undies. I also pretty much exist soley off of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Bananas in Australia cost $8-$10 a bunch. I tried to live without but its just not possible. I used to get side stitches if I drank any type of caffine before training- hope you feel better!!!!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 5:59 PM , OpenID cupcakedynamite said...

I also SPENTTTTTTTTT $$$ on 64 diet cokes a day...maybe you said 24 but i was an addict. i shouldn't talk about it in the past because i only quit yesterday.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:01 PM , Blogger Rene said...

Occasional side stitches, especially if I'm trying to keep up with my 8 yr old.
I coveted a certain pair of shoes and saved for a while to buy them. They cost a lot. They are a killer pair of heels and I adore them but they hurt my toes. I wear them to church once or twice a month to remind myself of my stupidity. That was a year ago and I haven't bought another pair of heels since.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:11 PM , Anonymous Stephanie @ The Travelling Tastebuds said...

Um... it's hard to limit what I spend the most money on to like... three items... cuz' I just spend a lot of money... period! I guess it would be food... and then I go through random phases where I will spend on beauty products... or books... or camera stuff... but most consistently I spend a crap load of money on food.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:13 PM , Anonymous Pam said...

I love "TOM'S!!" I bought my first pair after my daughter received hers. She kept raving how comfy they were...and they ARE. I have the black sequin ones... :)

I love that you can laugh at yourself. At 34 I'm still learning to do that!! Don't change!! Even after you have kids!! You are going to be a great mommy one day!! I already picture you having nightmares while your preggers 'bout losing them...so funny!! :)

Too much dinero$$$ at Sephora and clothes!!

Have a great evening and take care of your side stitch...maybe some chamomile tea w/honey will do the trick...and kisses from your Billy!! :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:15 PM , Blogger Trying To Heal said...

i used to have really really bad side stitches when i was in hs that would cause me to drop out of races. i luckily grew out of them, but tried everything at the time to get rid of them. they suck!

and no, you don't have appendicitis..wrong side. :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:18 PM , Anonymous Bess@Bess Be Fit said...

I want to get eyelash extensions. I wear fake eyelashes sometimes and love how they make me look! I feel instantly prettier haha....and I love toms too I was wearing my grey ones to work today :) Consider yourself lucky today was the first side stitch you have ever gotten!!! Those are annoying! OKAY YOU'RE GORGEOUS THAT'S ALL!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:22 PM , Anonymous Rebecca said...

I used to spend a ton of money on highlights. I've embraced dishwater blonde for two years, but here's my confession: I'm getting highlights tomorrow! Woo hoo.
Good luck with the side stitch. Yoga might help work it out.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:24 PM , OpenID runningonwords said...

I spend stupid amounts on good green tea and cosmetics. Oh, and my hair. The hair is worth it, I'm not so sure about the rest.

I get side stitches all the time along with shoulder cramps. It blows, but they usually go away if I slow down for a few minutes.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:39 PM , Anonymous chelsey @ clean eating chelsey said...

Before I was married, I spent a lot more money on clothes. I miss new clothes.

I get side stitches all the time and I get a knot inbetween my shoulder blades. So annoying!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:52 PM , Blogger Mallory said...

Haha your confessions made me laugh!!! I LOVE those red Toms you are wearing. I'm pretty obsessed with Toms. I actually first heard about them at a Hanson show back in 2007 when we did a barefoot walk for poverty :)

I shouldn't have bought so many pairs of Doc Martens back in the late 90's because I'd have like $1000 extra dollars right now and that'd be awesome.

I get side stitches occassionally but what I've been told is that leaning the opposite way and taking deep breaths helps. I've tried it and it actually works!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:53 PM , Blogger Zaneta said...

haha... loved this post!! hmm... a confession... I've bought a lot of yarn over the past couple years without having any real project in mind... i bought it just because I thought it was pretty lol

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:53 PM , OpenID runyogarepeat said...

I get side cramps occasionally, and they're so obnoxious - I just want to enjoy my run!
Confessions: I ate a few spoons of nutella today after my spinning + abs class. I needed to re-fuel after working out, because our dinner date wasn't for another hour. Haha, chocolate is the best after working out!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:56 PM , Blogger danielle said...

I get a right side cramp a lot... U would laugh at me because when that happens I run with my right hand over my head:-) and I used to spend TONS of money on expensive purses but I've given that up. I switch purses way too much to be spending an entire paycheck on just one!!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 6:59 PM , OpenID catiepat said...

I have a confession... But you guys can't beat me up okay?!??!?

I used to hate running. DESPISED IT.

I was on a competitve dance team all throughout high school and every Friday we had morning practice. Before we could go and shower we had to run one mile on the track outside... No matter what the weather was.
I hated it! One mile was soooo long!

Funny how times change... Now I'm training for my first marathon!


I also have an addiction to Starbucks, shoes, and purses... I own a purse that costs more than one months rent of my apartment... oops!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:01 PM , Blogger Jess @ THIR said...

Comments meant for both Confession posts... I got voted most clumsy in my tri club. 'Nuf said.
Also, I get stiches all the time, but I don't think they are real ones... I think they are the remains of my scarred insides after a gall bladder surgery just hurting me when I try too hard...

The dumb thing I get sprunt doing.... spending my money on cycling gear online.
All. The. Time.
I probably don't need more cycling gear!!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:03 PM , Blogger Courtney said...

You are just way too funny.

Tell me about eye-lash extensions? Professionally done? Glue? Whaaaaa? I want.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:07 PM , Blogger Kel said...

I redecorate when really mad.


I eat string cheese like it is water. Not kidding. I'm eating it right now.

I'm afraid I will never date or get married. Now there's a confession.

There was a time where I thought I might be an adult and still watch "Barney".

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:08 PM , Blogger my little celebration said...

I just love you. That is all.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:10 PM , Blogger Kate said...

I used to actually spend money on a cute wardrobe! Those days have disappeared. I'll buy running tights over a pair of jeans any day. They get way more use.

Major confession: In college I was a tanorexic. I no longer spend $$ on that and I have no desire to get in a tanning machine that will give me wrinkles. (but I do miss that nice glow).

I spend so much money on running (i.e. races, traveling to races, hotels for races, running clothes, etc) and the rest of my money goes to FOOOOOD! :)

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:10 PM , Blogger Kate said...

p.s. is there a limit to how many times we can vote for you?

Please, please, PLEASE keep that puppy!!

I get side stitches. They stink.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:25 PM , Anonymous Paula @ Eat: Watch: Run said...

I used to buy TONS of DVDs. Ones I hadn't even seen before but wanted to see. I stopped buying them many years ago, but now I have a whole closet full of them...probably over 1000 between me and my husband. < ---- Could be retired now

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:27 PM , Blogger Lindsay and James Cotter said...

oh side cramps are the worst. I hate them. I heard your suppose to hold your side and take deep breaths. Maybe??
And would you mind dressing me? I just love how cute and stylish you are!
mmm....burger sounds good right now!

Are those red Toms?! LOVE THEM!

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:33 PM , Blogger PBandJ Runner said...

Something I've spent a boat load on: Smoothie King protein shakes over the summer. It was on my way home from my lifeguarding job and they are soo goood... but then I bought my own protein powder and started saving the 5 dollars I spent on them, plus saved the planet since no more styrofoam containers!!!


Confessions: I have a fear of painting my nails. I used to do it all the time, but now I freak out when I think about it because of the amount of time and yucky remover fumes it took to get the stuff off.
Also, I HATE when people touch my face or hair. Don't know why, but I always cringe. Something to do with my cousins constantly braiding my hair when I was little??

I get cramps on the run if I haven't eaten anything and it's a hard workout, or if I have had a lot of fiber that day, or if I am nervous. AKA avoid apples and anxiety before races.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:34 PM , Blogger Amylee said...

I've only been running for a year, and I have yet to figure out how to take it easy at the beginning of a race. I get a side cramp EVERY RACE I RUN. Seriously. It's a joke. It will hurt me for up to a week- I swear I just pull a muscle or something.

Baked goods are a problem- we're talking 5+ orange rolls or sugar cookies in a sitting. I have issues.

 
At March 3, 2011 at 7:36 PM , Blogger Demetria Raper said...

confession: i am completely and horrifically (is that a word?) obsessed with birthday cake. just finished my first half 3 weeks ago and went to kroger the next day and bought a small sheet cake. ate the entire thing minus 4 pieces eaten by the hubbs and my little guys. it was gone in 2 days. that's embarrasing.

just got my first side stitch the other day and it was TERRIBLE! made for a horrible run. what's the cause i wonder?

I have spent a small fortune on magazines. Now at least my tastes have upgraded to running/health/fitness magazines. Well, mostly. :)

Oh I definitely used to get my acrylics rebased and a pedicure every two weeks pre-marriage! Funny when you share a bank account/budget how $100 a month on nails seems ridiculous!! Also...I re-wear my workout clothes multiple times every week. I run at 5am, so what does it matter if I'm stinky?!? Hehehe!

I used to get my nails done all the time! Back when I had a job (pre-college!), I got to spend my spending money on pretty much whatever, and I was a manager of a store after awhile so I had it goin' on :D Now that I'm in college and jobless, not so much. It's painful to buy toilet paper (you go through it SO fast...)

Confession: I just walked into the kitchen to make some tea and came back with ice cream. I have no idea how that happened.

I used to get cramps all of the time but they've gone away now. You can totally go for burgers and broccoli, balance right? =P

Some days I only put on makeup to cover up the makeup I didn't take off the day before

I workout and sweat like a man-pig almost daily... I wash my hair about once a week =)

I used to pay to go to the tanning salon! Makes me SO sad. Lots of $$$$ AND damaging my skin? Bummer. I love your confession posts. #7 - my Billy always catches me in the act, too! Usually when I'm looking for chocolate chips.

I loved these confessions girl! :) Too funny!! I get side stiches a lot, but I've learned that it's worse (for me) to stop running--usually if I just keep running they will eventually go away. But it's NOT fun when they happen!

Sandwiches in church???? WWJD???

I'm having a little giggle picturing your mid-sermon snack.

haha I love this. I break out into random dancing all the time too. In fact, I'm trying to convince my bf I need to buy a laptop and my #1 reason was: Well I can have random dance parties in any room, NOT just the computer room! He didn't think that was that exciting...

Do you get cramps/side stiches when you run?

YES and I hate it. I have to stop sometimes because it hurt too much.

confession: I still watch General Hospital

I love all the confessions! I don't get side stitches, but I also do not run nearly as much as you do. I have always been pretty frugal, but I used to buy too many clothes and shoes!!! I am doing much better... kind of. I teach Zumba and I spend more than I would like to on Zumba apparel and shoes, but I justify it because I wear it all just as much as my regular work clothes. The majority of my money goes towards FOOD and I'm completely okay with that. :)

I'm glad you snack in church! Our church is very laid back and casual, and we offer breakfast items and coffee for people to bring into worship, so I'm ALWAYS eating through church!

Confession...I almost ALWAYS eat really smart (lots of veggies, fruits, whole grains, limited sugar, etc)...but one night during Christmas break I was up at like 3 a.m. watching The Hangover and I definitely ate half a bag of pretzel crisps, a bowl of cereal, oatmeal, some nuts, and like 4 chocolate chip cookies...oops!

I've wasted more money than I'd like to admit on clothes. I cut down when we got married and therefore joint finances...but I cut down even more back in November, just to see if I could!

That burger looks awesome... I think it's about time I have one...

And, luckily I don't have side stitches/cramps very often. I can't remember the last time. I think it's usually due to scarfing down a snack too close to a longer run.

I have never heard of eyelash extensions...what the what? how does that work? seems like it would have to involves someone with very tiny hands...

I used to get running cramps all the time, and then I learned that I have to run with an empty stomach. no food. problem solved.

Hahaha - #5 and 7! I hardly ever, ever get side stitches anymore, but they go away after a minute or so!

Hey! I'm a newbie to the blog world and LOVE your blogs!!

I get side stitches all the time! But I'm new to the running thing so who knows why?
During a healthy eating stretch my husband caught me hiding a bag of cheetos in my glove box.... I'm a fat kid at heart....
I danced across the finish line of myfirst 5k!! ( well danced AFTER the finish line... Just last week!!)
My sister and I can not take pictures together without making weird faces, it embarasses our mom!

You are Soo helping me stay motivated, and not feel so guilty when I eat cheese fries with my beer!!

BEND OVER girl!! That sounds dirty and all, but honestly, I don't mean it that way...! ;) The sports nutritionist dude I spoke to recommended that:)

And trust me, it is SUCH an effort for me to make a 'nice' face for the camera!! I ruin every group photo EVER taken! :P

Confession: I drink so much water I have to get up 1000 times in the night to pee. Gross fact of the century!!

AHAHAH YES!! Im a sporatic dancer too- i literally cannot stop myself if i hear music.. i just cant
i HATE STICHES-- I have a trick though on how to get rid of them :)
confession: I make videos of m;yself on photo booth with all the crazy effects and i really scare myself with how werid i am.. like if anyone saw them- they would think i was mental

First stitch ever? wow.. luck girl!! The next time you get one, take deeper breaths and that normally does the trick :)
I totally spent waay way to much money on jeans when I was in highschool. Looking back it was ridiculously stupid to do.

I would definitely say going out to coffee in college was a serious wallet drain.

I usually don't get side stitches unless I eat something horribly unhealthy right before I run, you know, like cheese from a can. What are you talking about? I never eat that.

 
At March 4, 2011 at 6:38 AM , Blogger Euniece Santiago said...

hmm considering i am a poor college soph. i think there are probably a LOT of thinks i spend copious amounts of money on that i shouldnt! clothes* would be my biggest vice though!!!! although food does add up quite a bit, but hey a runner girls gotta eat :)

"I don't think I should be allowed to have children until I can successfully take care of a dog for a year without loosing it"

TIME OUT!!! Are you telling me you lost a dog!!!???

I use to spend too much money on running showes I couldnt run in, I am a pronator, and stabilty shoes are UGLY, so I would buy neutral shoes so I can look cool, cuz all the cool looking shoes are neutral shoes.

I confess that last night I ate a whole Chipotle burrito when I said I was going to eat half and save the rest and today work is buying us pizza, thats 2 cheat days in a row, not my normal mantra (I had a coupon for BOGO at chipotle, like I was gonna waste that)

Your Pukie is up

My confessions: 1. I stalk your blog looking for pictures of your hair cut/color because I want it on me :)(I hope you don't mind my hairstylist seeing the picture of you picking your nose because I love the color and layers ha!) 2. I dance while I'm running on the treadmill... at the gym! If a good song comes on I just can't help it and if the people beside me think I'm crazy, oh well. 3. I won't put myself in a coma for Skittles, but Chinese food will get me every time (about 1x a month)! Also, I used to spend too much money on drinking alcohol. I'm so very thankful and blessed that those dark days are behind me. P.S. I haven't gone to spin yet, but as soon as I do I will let you know how it goes.

I get cramps on occasion. They suck. I dance all of the time, at work, at the grocery store. The husband thinks I'm weird, but that's okay.

I ALWAYS get side stiches so much so that before big races I cant eat anything and we have to eat a super early dinner. We tried everyting to fix them but this is the only thing that works. Tip - massage teh side stitch and it should help it go away. hmmmm something I wish i hadnt bought..I suppose I dont reallllly need all those nail polishes ha

 
At March 4, 2011 at 8:36 AM , Blogger Jeri said...

Hmmm if it still hurts it might not be a side stitch. I had the same thing happen at a race a few years back when I was hauling booty downhill, I actually strained an ab muscle. Hopefully that's not it though!

I like to bust out terrible dance moves all the time, luckily the boyf does too, so we're freaks together. :)

occasionally I get a side stitch. They stink. Confession- I really like to eat my kids gummy calcium vitamins.

 
At March 4, 2011 at 9:43 AM , Blogger Sheanna said...

Confession #1: I am like a money hoarder. I worry about sepnding money because something "might" happen and I could have used the money I just spent on the thing that might happen. Grocery shopping doesn't count. But thanks to that I have a nice chunk of change saved up (for a future home purchase).

Confession #2: I buy my clothes at Good Will and I STILL look like I spent a fortune. No lie, I get tons of compliments all the time. This one goes along with Confession #1 because I think clothes are a waste of my money...Especially when I could use that money to buy my first home.

Confession #3: The thought of actually writing that huge check for the down payment on a home scares me to my very core (we're talking anxiety attack, here). WHAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS?!?

Yeah one of my march goals is to ditch the diet soda because I really want to not spend money on it! AHHH!

I love all your confessions and I think you're amazing. And I woudl totally break out into random dance (and possibly song) with you! :)

I have an addiction to ridiculously expensive hair products... like a $50 Kerastase deep conditioning treatment that you could only use 3 times... or a $40 bottle of Morrocan Oil shampoo. Not on a regular basis, but definitely in moments of weakness. And those are in CANADIAN funds so it's even worse than it would sound to you!!

Clothes. Each time I go to Target I come home with at least one item of clothing I had no intention of buying. LOL. I'm working on it.

I get side stitches if I eat too much or am not hydrated enough before my run.
