Sunday Confessions 4-26-15

Sunday Confessions

1.) The only reason I got out of bed this morning was my growling stomach and then wanting to do my post. As soon as I am finished, I am going back to bed for a couple more hours.

2.) My leg is all numb and I'm about 90% sure I pinched a nerve on Thursday/Friday, so I am holding off on exercise until I get that figured out. Don't know if I'm being lazy or it's something I should exercise through, but I'm not doing it.

3.) I have been spending copious amounts of time on personal writing, and I am loving it and honestly, can't wait to get right back into it as soon as I get up a few hours from now. (I would get rolling now, but I was up well into the wee hours of the morning and my brain is all but oatmeal.)

4.) I am truly enjoying this weekly link-up and I'm delighted every time you guys join and I get to see your own weekly "confessions" and I see you commenting on each other's blogs and it just makes me super delighted.

5.) Last night I decided I do not like celery sticks. They are okay chopped into little bits in a potato salad or stuffing or something, but to chew on a celery stick dipped in peanut butter or cream cheese - all the stringyness and then the little ball of celery string that forms and you have to spit out just drives me crazy.

6.) Yesterday I didn't fill out my MFP diary for the day for no other reason than I was too preoccupied with all the writing to really do anything else online.

What do you guys have this week?

Sunday Confessions 4-19-15

Sunday Confessions

1.) I was recently thinking about that one time long ago when I attempted to use a comedone extractor on a couple of tiny blackheads on my chin and just couldn't seem to get it to work properly. So I (foolishly! So very foolishly!) went to youtube and searched the topic for instructional videos. I was appalled and stunned and grossed out and....could not.stop.watching. Video after video of blackheads and....oy. I can't even get into it. Suffice to say, there is a whole world of people who really enjoy pus. (But I really feel better about my complexion.)

2.) My kidney had become increasingly sore over several days, so I decided I could either A.) Go to the hospital or B.) Hope that it was a plumbing issue and have a bowl of Colon Blow take a Dulcolax.
I'm just going to say that thank God I only took one pill, and now my kidney still hurts, but for a whole different reason. Also, I'm beginning to think it might be more of a chiropractic issue? Maybe just needing to stretch?

3.) I know artificial sweeteners aren't exactly good for you, but I've been loving the sugar-free liquid water enhancers. My favorite flavors are Tropical Tango and half and half (tea & lemonade). Using these, I have been drinking a butt load more water than before.

Hmm...I think that's it for now.

Awesome Links

The Motherfucking Pterodactyl (video from one of my favorite fun sites, The Oatmeal.)

Movies that Get 0 out of 10 (My nephew is 19 years old and watches ALL the movies...good, bad, action, drama, old, classic, horror, comedy - if it's a movie, he watches and analyzes it. Here are his reviews for the 2 movies that sucked enough to get a zero on his scale.)

A Moment in Time (Blog post from Caitlin)

Honest Trailers: Cinderella

Orange is the New Black Season 3 Trailer - You've probably already seen this trailer several times, but I'm still including it.

Lunch at O'Nutters (Skit from Inside Amy Schumer)

Hermione Granger and the Goddamn Patriarchy (buzzfeed video) 

Jess has some great ideas for monthly blog themes. (Humor)

Sunday Confessions 4-12-15

Sunday Confessions

1.) Copy (be sure to grab it all) the text in the box and paste it onto a new post.
2.) Give your new post a delightful name and get out what's been in your brain all week.
3.) Come back and add your link (make sure it's linking directly to your confessions post) to the list and check out others.
4.) Each link will be open for a week, until the new week starts.

1.) This is my first Sunday Confessions and I'm still not quite sure how well the InLinkz will work, so somebody please attempt to add your link at least so I can see if it works okay. I'm not really expecting much, but I put a surprising amount of work into making that button and I'm weirdly proud of it, so I'm definitely doing this more.

2.) I ate WAY TOO MUCH at dinner tonight and I am paying for it now. All I can do is wait it out, but basically, I ate myself sick and I am miserable. I will be restarting counseling on Wednesday and I definitely intend to address my emotional eating and why I eat past hungry. Ugh. I hate this about myself.

3.) I spent an entire hour dicking around on instagram earlier today...just searching different hashtags and perusing various accounts I found interesting. Random.

4.) This is a bad one. In the past few months, three different blogs I follow(ed) have gone to private and I'm kinda wigging out it me? Are they going private just to avoid me? Two of them still interact with me on other social media, but one completely abandoned accounts and disappeared.Seriously, has this happened to anyone else?  It's probably coincidence, but there is that sense school insecurity I have. Lame. Super lame. People whose blogs I comment on a lot: I'm not a stalker, or a crazy person, I just really enjoy interacting with other bloggers.
