confessions

Hello Blog World, 

First I would like to start off by saying sorry to those of you who I made excited yesterday and then ruined your day, when I said it was Wednesday, but really it was only Tuesday. That was inconsiderate of me. Also, we all know that Wednesday is saved for linking up with Kathy for Humpday Confessions


With that let's get to my confessions for the week. 

//Confession: I think I am a bad track coach. One of my  favorite athletes that I work with almost broke my school record in the Heptathlon #humblebrag yesterday - and as happy as I was for her awesome performance, I was even more relieved that she is only second all time on the list...for now. Obviously as a coach I want her to perform at the highest level she can; but the selfish part of my former athlete side does not want to see my record go down. Yesterday was too close for comfort and she has another chance to break it later this season. Maybe I will sabotage her and start coaching her poorly? Kidding...obviously! 

//I confess: I am tired of seeing your quiz results from Buzzfeed up on Facebook. We get it - Buzzfeed is awesome. The quizzes are pretty spot on...but you're not special for doing that quiz. EVERYONE on buzzfeed has done that quiz. Stahhhhp it, you're tramatizin me. I got 'Recess' for which 90s Cartoon Series I am, because I know you were wondering.


//I confess: I am still not good at yoga. It's way harder than regular workouts. How does one get so bendy?! (ps. who doesn't love Natalie Dee?)

//I confess: last night's yoga sesh was my first time doing yoga in probably at least 6 months. No wonder I am not good at it. 

//Continuing on with yoga - I confess that I enjoy the Tone It Up Girls and their workouts (including the yoga one I did last night)...BUT HOW DO YOU GIRLS WORKOUT WITH YOUR HAIR DOWN?! Insert all the shouty caps! How is your hair still curled? How is it not wet noodles? How are you not getting it in your mouth and chocking on it twss How are you not getting it stuck in your armpit and pulling your head and hurting yourself. Not that any of this has ever happened to me....It defies logic and science.


Anyway, those are all the things I have to confess today. Until tomorrow, blog world. 

Cheers! 

<3 BB

I love the buzzfeed quizzes or any quizzes, I usually only post the one's I want my sister to take too. :)

Helene in Between said...

hahaha i would be the exact same way with track if i held the record. no shame there! and yeah working out with hair down.. i just dont get it.

Melissa Suggitt said...

uh yeah i wouldnt want that besh to beat my record either so it's all good.

and THANK YOU! yoga IS hard!

Kenzie Smith said...

I'm glad she didn't beat your record because I definitely wouldn't want someone beating me.. but good luck to her either way! I laughed so hard at that Jersey Shore meme. I watched way too much of that, lost a few brain cells while I was doing it. Yikes. Working out with your hair down is ridiculous and painful. I've done it a few times and I definitely didn't look good doing it.

Nadine Lynn said...

I would have a hard time helping someone beat me too.

I love Buzzfeed but I get tired of seeing it plastered all over my damn newsfeed too!!!!!

I don't understand girls who wear their hair down or have full make up while working out. What the hell?

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

It grosses me out when girls work out with their hair down. YUCK.
If I see one more buzzfeed quiz result I'm gonna go ape shit.

Kasey Lynne said...

My Zumba teacher wears her hair down EVERY class and I just don't get it. How the HECK does that not bother you?!?! It drives me nuts when it's in a ponytail!

Meg {henninglove} said...

no your hump day was yesterday ms i have good friday off ;-) and yoga sessions i made the mistake of taking my husband to one yoga class, just one and he ended up being the star pupil while i got criticized by the teacher, yah he wasnt invited back

Rachel Sedaker said...

Hahahaha, you're a terrible/awesome coach! I love yoga, it's so my jam, so I'm the opposite- I suck at anything athletic. I'm still a wee bit sore from Sunday's hike. Also, I've never seen anyone in yoga class with their long hair down. Yoga videos will lie to you- don't believe them!

Claire @ Refining Bliss said...

I seriously don't understand how girls go to the gym with their hair down and makeup done! I'm a hot mess when I exercise, but it makes me feel like I really accomplished something!

Whitney Leigh said...

I NEVER post buzzfeed quizzes.
Though I'm probably just as annoying with my insta photos. I've been trying to pull back on those as well.

And I'm going to give yoga another chance tonight because I pulled a muscle in my back last week at crossfit. :( I want to keep doing strength though, but I need low impact right now. I'm nervous. I'm so bad at yoga.

Tell me when her chance to break your record is. I'll come sabotage her so you don't have to.

P!nky said...

Women who work out with their hair down drive me batty. How in the world are you working hard if your hair is still perfecT? no sense whatsoever.

JumpingJE said...

Don't let your record go down!!! Ever!!

Teach me some yoga! I think it's something my world might be missing. Although I'm not wearing yoga pants, that'd just be weird.

Fairy Princess Jord said...

I always am confused by the tone it up girls looking like they're ready to go out in the workout videos...perfect beachy curly hair, that can't happen in real life!

Katie Qué said...

ARE YOU FRIENDS WITH HAH OR NO?

Forever myfavorite line from Jersey Shore

Lauren said...

Recess is the best but when my grandma starts posting her results to facebook, then that ship has sailed...

kailyn marie said...

DONT LET HER BEAT YOU!!! I mean, um...keep up the great coaching!

PS yessss just yes on the jersey shore gif. STAHP IT!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

i can't even leave my hair down any time so i have no idea how girls can wear their hair down while exercising AND wearing makeup!! doesn't that shit melt right off??

thanks for linking up!

Kait said...

dude yoga = hard. i still dread going, even though i walk out every time feeling awesome.

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

I suck at yoga- but I still try. And hope nobody is laughing at me!

Rachel said...

I couldn't even do the splits when I was a kid...I don't think I'll ever be 'bendy'. And my husband still holds the 1 mile record for his high school that he set back in 2003...I think he will be sad when that gets broken!

Becky said...

Do people on your fb share the "trending styles" b.s. too? THAT is what I'm more sick of than anything else. Ugh.

Myra said...

THE HAIR DOWN/WET NOODLES. ALL THE YES. In shouty caps. I love TIU & their videos, but holy sweaty hair, I could never do their workouts as gracefully and sweat-free like them. I'm all over here mopping up puddles of yuck around me and they are busy swishing their hair around like models. Not fair.
