My Husband Thinks I'm Fat and Other Confessions

I confess that I have a really bad habit of forgetting to zip up my fly.  When I got out of my car yesterday to meet a few friends for happy hour thinking I looked all cute in my outfit I hear a male voice call out "Your fly is open."  I still don't even know where he was or exactly where that voice came from.  I never did see him but I did zip up my fly.  Oops.  How embarrassing!!

I confess that I've actually been kinda loving this whole eating clean thing.  I was eating like such crap and it feels good to know that at least 90% of what I'm putting into my body is healthy.  What's the other 10% ?  About 10 ounces of coffee in the morning and there was that one glass of wine last night but I have stayed away from candy, baked goods and severely limited my carb intake so as far as I'm concerned that's a win.

I confess that my husband thinks I'm fat.  Well, what am I supposed to think when he says that I need to work on toning exercises?  As a women it's my right to get all indignant about such comments.  I know he doesn't think I'm fat.  I've been doing almost all cardio for the last three years and he just wants me to switch it up.  Muscle building is important too.  And he wants me to be ripped.  Noted.  See next confession.

I confess that I'm kinda proud of how the 30 Day Shred Level 1 has not kicked my butt nearly as much as I was expecting it too.  Maybe I'm not in as bad of shape as my husband thinks I am.  Yes, I was sore but mostly upper body and not even terribly so.  I better not get too confident because it only gets harder and Level 2 will probably be my undoing.
Latest Giveaway Win!!!
I confess that I'm currently part of two giveaways at the same time.  Talk about all or nothing.  One is for a Personalized Cell Phone Case and the other is for a $60 Target Gift Card.  Check them out and enter.  I personally have won 12 giveaways so I am proof that it is possible to win these suckers.  Make that 13.  I just won another one today.

I confess that I'm a little nervous about this new video thing on Instagram.  People in the blog world don't know me in 3D.  It's just different.  I may or may not ever post a video.  We shall see.

Confessional Friday // Linking up with Leslie @A Blonde Ambition
I confess that I had no idea that there was actual hot water in the hot water heater. We were watching the episode of Breaking Bad where he goes out and buys an expensive tankless water heater. I ask Mj. So what is actually in the tank that you would need that giant container for anyways? He looks at me like I'm crazy and says water. That's where your hot water comes from when you turn it on and that's why you can "run" out of water. Oh. My next question was, well then where does the hot water come from when you have a tankless heater but I didn't want to miss anymore of that episode being schooled on things that I should apparently already know.

I confess that I had no idea where the brakes on a car were. One day we were driving down the highway and I noticed a red metal circle inside the tire of a car next to us and I asked Mj my usual question. What's that? Again, he looks at me like I'm crazy and says their brakes. But they aren't like that on every car are they? I've never noticed a color like that. Suddenly it was like a whole new world opened up to me. I saw breaks in the wheels of every car I looked at. Well, where did you think the brakes were? He asks.  I actually thought they were somewhere under my foot when I pressed the brake.  That general area.  I've been driving a car since I was 16 so maybe I should know that.   For the record I don't know how to change a flat tire either.

Happy Friday all!!! This day could not come fast enough.

Oh darlin! I doubt he thinks you're fat. But at the same time, I'm so glad you're doing clean eating. Doesn't it make you feel so much better? And more energy, too? I'm doing the same exact thing & I'm with ya...every step!

Ruthy Taylor said...

Omg you are the furthest thing from fat! Geez. I feel like a breached whale in comparison!

Rachel Murphree said...

I am fly-challenged as well. It's led to a lot of embarrassing moments. And to be honest, I don't know about brakes either, and only recently learned how water heaters work! :)

I did not know about brakes either and my son gave me that dumb look; perhaps I'm not so sure of my knowledge of water heaters either - you're in good company!

I loved your confessionals. I wish I was as in shape as you are! And that bracelet is lovely. Congrats on the win!

Carla said...

LOL!!!

You must love Mj if you didn't punch him in the face for that comment! From your pics, you're *definitely* not fat!

I love Breaking Bad! I can't wait for it to come back on!

Whitney Cypert said...

I'm glad that you are enjoying eating clean, it definitely feels good to know that what you are eating you don't have to feel guilty about! I can not believe that you have won 13 giveaways. That's nuts!

This is so funny!

It reminds me of the time I was in the backyard with my roommates back in University and I asked what that 3x3 foot box-thing was attached to the house. They gave me *that look* and told me it was the air conditioner. Hahaha. I didn't know!! I grew up in Northern Ontario, so our air conditioners were all the window-sized ones that you can take out in the winter. Whoops!

Amy said...

Fat? No ma'am. I would pay a LOT of money to get your body! On a different note, I too did not know where the brakes were until I watched my husband change brakes when we were dating. I also thought they should be under the break pedal somewhere. lol.

Stopping by from Confessional Friday! I am the opposite! I prefer strength training over cardio, I would MUCH rather lift weights than do cardio ANY DAY! Anyway, I shared some of my randoms, I'd love it if you stopped by! :)

My husband tells me I need to tone up as well...I equate it to him calling me fat too (just kidding)! The hot water heater and brake confessions are super hilarious but being unsure about each makes sense. I was the same until we had to learn about such things in class, then I wondered why I chose to become an engineer in the first place!

My husband told me I have fat thighs...sigh. Not sure why the clueless gene seems to dominant in males....

Faith said...

Haha I love your confessions!

If you are fat, I'm an elephant!

I can't believe you won that many giveaways! I've never won. But that could be that I haven't entered enough. They are such a hassle to enter, ugh.

Pegster said...

When I read the title I was like What?!? Fat?!?....yeah, no way, not even close. You are so skinny and it shows toning or not :).

Emmett Katherine said...

Good job on the clean eating, 90/10 is really good!!! Cardio is good but incorporating stength training is really important too! A lot of women seem to avoid it, but it won't make you super jacked, just stronger!

The Sweetest Thing said...

Oh boy. The title alone is hil.ar.ious. Skinny lil Cece! Love that SD bracelet!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Fun confessionals...you are toned my dear beyond belief!!

Janna Renee said...

Haha I totally get the fat thing, because I love that Will is supportive about me working out, but then in vulnerable moments I think, "Is he trying to influence me to work out for ulterior motives?"
