Thinking Out Loud #1: I must confess…

Happy Thursday! Smile I hope you have a wonderfully fabulous day. You deserve it.


First confession. I have never done a real link up before. I didn’t “get it”. I just thought everyone did WIAW posts on their own….. Nope, they are actually all linked up. I’ve been blogging on and off for over a year and it took me this long to figure it out. Sooooo I am finally joining in on this link party. Thank you to Amanda at Running with Spoons. I like her recipes. They are drool worthy. Just saying.

Second confession. There has been some crazy mileage this week. 4.5 miles, 4 miles (2 at tempo pace), 7.25 (!!!) miles, and finally 4.5 today. My legs and feet are tiiiiiiiiiiired.

But I got new shoes from a brand I’ve never heard of. They are pretty cute though.


I think I like them so far. Well, I hope I do. I’ve put like 12 miles on them so I don’t think I can return them now Winking smile


Confession #3: I am the proud owner borrower of a car. My mom just bought a used Prius so I get to drive the minivan now!!

It’s SO CUTE and cost and environmentally friendly. My mom loves it and so do I!! I haven’t driven it yet though- I’m too scared!

Confession #4: I need to do a Summer Reading post. I’m on an animal books kick lately. Maybe it has something to do with this little one.

Her name is Addy and we have been watching her for a week while her family is on vacation. She is too sweet, and she only weighs 10 pounds!!

Confession #5: I watched a documentary about how America works and the systems its made up of. There was a part about cows being slaughtered. I haven’t eaten any meat since I watched it 2 weeks ago. This explains my sudden vegetarian pinterest boards, if you were curious. I was talking to Leigha, and I don’t want to label or restrict myself, so I’m just saying that I’m eating more plant based! Smile 

Confession #6: Lunch tastes better eaten outside. Fact.


Confession #7: I could write about all the college research I’ve been doing this week and how AP scores come out Saturday or how I forgot to take off work the days I’m supposed to do visits next week. But I’m tired of talking about college. So I’m just going to forget about it for today Smile

Confession #8: White Chocolate Wonderful is, in fact, wonderful. I can’t believe it took me so long to try this stuff.

Confession #9: Foodbabe posted about Abe’s Market Try for $2 deal.

Today the products aren’t as exciting as yesterday. I ordered vegan jerky, mango chia bars, and honey cookies. I’m super pumped. $2 and shipped per sample? Count me in. I’ll let you guys know how I like everything as soon as I get it! Smile

Final confession: I haven’t gone to yoga in over a week. This is not good. I need yoga. With all this running, I’m just sooooo tired. I will go soon though. I miss the studio. I think yoga has really helped my running as well. I want to keep it up!!



Enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. YAY for getting a new car! I remember being so nervous to drive by myself for the first time haha. I’ve never tried White Chocolate Wonderful before, but I’ve heard so many great things about it. Where do you buy yours?

  2. Food most definitely tastes better when it’s eaten outside… which is why I SWEAR that camping/picnic food tastes so much more amazing than it really is. Like I can be eating a piece of plain toast smeared with butter when I’m out in the woods, and it’ll taste like a 5-star breakfast. Good times 😀

  3. It took me so long to realize that you actually need to link up for the link ups! I felt so stupid when I found out. Awesome job on the running! Ice been doing yoga too and I think it definitely helps all around!

    • Yes- I’m not alone!! 😀 I can’t believe it took me so long to figure this out.

      I think yoga helps with everything as well… I know it helps with my happiness at very least! 🙂

  4. I’ve been slacking on yoga lately too! I miss it but I just am not feeling like doing it! And I agree too%- lunch is SO much better outside! Today I took my snack of apple + sunbutter + milk out on the deck 🙂 Congrats on the new car!! So exciting. And yay for eating plant based 🙂

  5. I totally got that same peanut butter today because of the discount! It was so worth it! My favorite nut butter is almond butter because I love to eat it with jelly. I think adding jelly to the white chocolate pb would be too sweet. I had it on a few pretzels as an appetizer to dinner and was happy with the purchase. I can’t wait to eat a sandwich tomorrow!

    • I agree- no jelly with this pb! almond butter is the best pairing with jelly. I have these raspberry preserves that are really delicious. too funny that we both got the same
      deal 🙂
