I Finally Got Sick of Eating Something

It's a confessions post!

I kind of want to change my blog name.  I was pretty sure I'd never ever want to after I switched to this one and just over a year later I can't believe it but I'm feeling that itch!  A month ago a different name popped into my head.  I dismissed it because it's such a huge hassle but I haven't stopped thinking about it.  I'd leave the url alone so it wouldn't be a huge nightmare but it will still be a pain in the booty and I'd need a new design.  It would have to be the last name change ever.  Ever.  Still on the fence.
Two years after the London Olympics and Team USA is still #1. Kyla Ross is still amazing.
I unfollowed any possible gymnastics spoilers on social media/blogs so I don't find out what happens before I get to watch Worlds on TV.  World Championship All-Around finals are happening right now, actually they are probably already done since it's in China.  It shouldn't be that hard not to find out since (almost) nobody cares about gymnastics outside of the Olympics but I'm taking all precautions.  It will be televised on NBC tomorrow at 11:00am Pacific.  I think it will be Team Finals and then All-Around on Sunday if anyone is interested.

I want to dress up like a Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader for Halloween.  It's been a looooong time since we had any kind of outing or event that includes dress up and the older I get the less likely there will be.  I could go downtown and troll the bars in costume but alas, I think I've aged out of that one too.  If I'm being honest, I've also aged out of the costume but I don't care.  The uniforms are so cute!  Every time I watch the DCC Making The Team photo shoot episode where they finally get there stars it makes me want to see what it's like to wear that uniform.  I want tiny white booty shorts and stars too.

I won a $75 Sephora gift card a year ago (incidentally, from a blogger who no longer blogs) and I still haven't used it.   My little sis asked for a Sephora gift card for her birthday and I guess I could have re-gifted but I didn't.  I have two problems.  I'm a hoarder and I'm indecisive. I don't know what to buy but I better do it soon or at least double check on if the thing looses value over time.

I keep an old beach towel in my car for my sweaty post work out drive home from the gym.  I'm pretty gross when I walk out of there and I don't like the idea of sitting my sweaty backside that has probably picked up other people's sweat from the equipment on my seats.  If I had leather I could swipe it clean but I have cloth.  Maybe I'm taking it too far but we all pick our battles in the war against germs and this is one I choose to fight.   

It's heat wave after heat wave and I don't hate it.  It's still about 70 degrees in the morning and pushing a high of 80's around here.  I might be singing a different tune if I didn't have air conditioning at home though.   Also, even though it still feels like Summer I've had three pumpkin spice coffees from 7-11.  It doesn't have the cool factor for Instagram of Starbucks but it's so much better tasting and has been my go to for morning coffee runs for a long time.  Plus, it's cheap!!  The price when you bring your own mug has only gone from .99 cents to $1.25 in 10 years.

I take pride in my ability to eat the same thing day in and day out but I finally got sick of something.  I've been eating chicken twice a day for lunch and dinner since June.  Last week I opened the freezer to thaw it out and I just couldn't do it.  I picked up some pre cooked (low sodium) chicken breast pieces from Fresh & Easy and I've been eating it for lunch this week but for the moment that is my limit.  I don't however foresee getting sick of my breakfast.  Still loving it. 

I kind of feel bummed that our next vacation isn't until July 2015.  I just got back from vacation so I'm fine but July feels so very far away right now.

It feels weird to be doing a confession post and not linking up with another blog since it's the only linking up I've ever done on a regular basis.  I'm linking up with myself!

I am totally with you on the 7-11 coffee... they are actually pretty good for the price. I think Mickey Ds coffee is also pretty good too! I am also looking forward to another big vacation but maybe you can plan something small-ish... palm springs, vegas. were so lucky we live so close to those places =) have a great weekend!

Oh my goodness. I am the absolute WORST at spending gift cards because I am super indecisive. Which is ridiculous because it's free money! Just buy something. Good grief. But the struggle is real.

I looooooooove gymnastics and I'm actually on usagymworlds.com watching some of it now! Also, I love Making the Team. I wish I had a booty that tight and hair that big. I really hope you do dress as a DCC for Halloween. I'll be interested to see what you decided on the blog name.

I pretty much eat the same things day after day too but sometimes you just get over certain things! I'm on a spaghetti and meatballs kick at the moment (cheap AND easy AND yummy) but we'll see how long that lasts.

Haha. My mom once regifted a brand new Cricut (I knew it was regifted). I ended not wanting it because it's accessories are super expensive. So I ended up regifting it to my husband's mom. She still doesn't know. Shhh.

Ok, the part that made me stop and think was the "eating the same thing day in and day out"... what?! that's a skill in my mind! I will have a craving as a make my lunch in the morning and then detest it by lunch time...causing me to wander down to the cafeteria! haha... you crack me up though!

I had a couple of Sephora gift cards for a long time too and finally used them the other weekend. I got some some perfume :)

maybe you could plan a weekend trip somewhere before july? we take smaller trips to help break it out so I don't feel like we go too long in between vacations

Faith said...

I always want to change my blog name, lol ... but I'm not creative enough to come up with a good one.

I love that you're linking up with yourself!!!

A Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader for Halloween, so fun! I think that would be a perfect costume on you.

You could do a mini trip ... like one on the weekend. Those are always fun and kind of help with the travel itch.

Faith said...

I swear I did not see the recommendation above mine before I wrote mine, lol. But see? Weekend trips are where it's at! :)

I love chicken, but every now and then, I HAVE to have a break. Plus I hate handling it.

Dying to know... What's your breakfast?!

I can't believe you have an unused $75 giftcard! That's crazy! I guess you don't really wear makeup though and that's what they have a lot of. I like the towel under the tush idea after the gym, sweaty seats are gross. What type of chicken do you normally eat for lunch/dinner? I can't believe you have been having it since June! I wish I didn't get tired of foods so easily, it would make it so much easier to eat healthy. What's your breakfast? I've been doing overnight oats and they are so good and filling! I feel ya on the vaca thing, no idea when my next one will be.
