Weekend Confessions IV

Happy Marathon Monday!

I am stoked to be a part of the Boston community for Marathon Monday this year. Y’all know that I’m no runner, but the energy and camaraderie that is emanating from this city is exhilarating!

Also, it’s awesome knowing that so many of YOU love running, and you might know some people running in the marathon. I know that Tina @ Carrots ‘n’ Cake and Morganne @ Nut Butter Runner are running in it! Maybe I can stalk them and track them down to say hello (in the most non-creepy way possible)!

I’ll be sure to fill you in on the excitement after today. Praying for all the workers, volunteers, spectators, and runners!

And now, I have some lighthearted confessions about my week that you can either relate to or use to feel better about yourself. 🙂

I finished a jar of peanut butter by myself in one week.

Here we see the very last of my (delicious) Teddie peanut butter that I bought just two Fridays ago. On Saturday morning, I made some quick oats with cinnamon, vanilla protein powder, banana, and a pinch of salt, and then I just dumped it in the almost empty jar!

My buddy PJ told me, “I’m not even mad, I’m just impressed.”

I was the “mom” secretly taking pictures of my two friends getting Confirmed.

Congratulations to my dear friends Cherie and Janice, who both received Confirmation this weekend! We celebrated with them at Mass and then later at Cherie’s place for fellowship and food. Speaking of food…

I went back for seconds of Cookie Butter ice cream, because COOKIE BUTTER ICE CREAM.

Swing dancing = weekend “turn up” in our books.

Sweaty ol’ stranger men and all.

I’m about a head-and-a-half shorter than all the girls pictured above.

What’s life like up there above 5’3″?

I missed an online homework assignment for organic chem.

Gahhhhh. It’s one of those grades that doesn’t make a huge difference, but it’s especially disappointing to lose points for it because of my carelessness. Thankfully, after emailing the professor, he kindly allowed me to complete the assignment late at no penalty.

Moral of the story: work hard at all times, make sure the professor knows you, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. Life happens!

My meals and eating times have been very weird lately.

I’ve been having double lunches and snacky/weirdly-timed dinners.

On Friday, I ate a late lunch at 2pm after class. Then I snacked on a lot of veggies, crackers, and hummus during work. Then I ate dinner at almost 10 pm at Clay Pot Cafe with my mom, bro, and family friends.

On Saturday, after my friends’ Confirmation and anatomy review, my blood sugar was low to the flo’, so I needed to eat lunch in the dining hall before going to Cherie’s place to eat more Indian food and desserts. Then dinner was chips at swing dancing and frozen banana with peanut butter in my dorm at midnight.

Finally, yesterday, I ate fruit and peanut butter for breakfast in my dorm, a normal brunch at 12:30pm, a super early snack-turned-dinner at 4pm, and then a light second dinner at 9:30pm.

I have no idea. This is college, so nothing is normal.

I dream that I can be in an a cappella group, but then I sing to myself in my dorm and come back to reality.

I’ll leave the singing glory to my friend Adrienne and her other awesome a cappella group members. They blow me away every single time!

This cover of “All I Ask of You” by Josh Groban and Kelly Clarkson has been on repeat.

It’s a beautiful thing amidst my pop/rap/alternative regulars.


Please tell me you can empathize with me on some of these?

I hope you all have a great day and week ahead! Just as I will be cheering on the marathoners, I am cheering YOU on in your endeavors this week!

So tell me:

Something new you tried in the past week!

Is your eating schedule ever outta whack?

Do you know anyone running in the Boston Marathon/anyone who has run in it in the past?

  1. My eating schedule is out of whack all the time because I just eat a meal when I’m hungry! Sometimes lunch is at 12 and sometimes 4 haha and I LOVE a cappella. I’m right there with you that it would not be safe for me to sing out of my own room but I admire those who do.

  2. Sometimes I have lunch at 10 AM if I have a super early morning and wake up at 4. Or sometimes I won’t even have a real lunch at all and just end up picking away at things all day — it really depends on how I’m feeling and what I’ve got going on! But how much fun would it be to be in Boston on marathon day?! I “know” a lot of bloggers who have run it in the past, and I’m definitely sending good vibes to anyone running it today!

  3. I would only admit this to you but I’ve always wanted to try swing dancing! I really am a grandma trapped in a 20 some year olds body 🙈 and maybe it’s something in the air but my eating has been so whacked lately too! Like dinner at 9:30, breakfast at 12. At first I was stressing but hey it all balances out 💁🏼
    Love you girl! Have a fantastic marathon Monday and hoping you get to see some fellow bloggers😊

  4. Wonky eating times is the only way I roll! I like to believe I am very sensitive and responsive to hungry signals which mean there is no set pattern.
    I’m in a confessing mood myself :
    I’m giving burpees another chance! They challenge my depressing coordination. And currently.. I can successfully complete 5 before throwing in the towel :p . I’m rather proud of that though!
    Cold breakfasts on icy cold mornings are..making me happy? Smoothies and overnight oats while sitting on the porch in my pj’s wondering if I’m exposing myself to potential bronchitis.

  5. I tried Ben & Jerry’s Boston Cream Pie ice cream this week, so that was pretty lovely (and I guess fitting in time for the marathon? 😉 ). 100% yes to college eating schedules being bizarre. Sometimes dinner is a ton of snacks at 11:00 pm and sometimes lunch kind of extends all afternoon. College is weird and wonderful 🙂

  6. Ahh hope you’re having a blast in what I can only imagine to be a crazy, exciting atmosphere right now!

    I’m loving the random times of your meals and just going with the flow. That, my friend, is living and trusting yourself.

  7. My eating schedule is ALWAYS out of whack. I can resonate with that completely. Also- thanks for confirming that cookie butter ice cream is good! I have been wanting to try it, but for some reason I have remained hesitant! I am going to try it soon though
