I confess that after several years of blogging I finally did my first sponsored post. I know that "sponsored post" is sometimes seen as a bad word in blog land but I'm feeling pretty good about the one I chose because it's a product that I truly love and had even already blogged about. I was offered a chance to blog about a cellulite cream and a skin firming machine. I thought about doing it for two seconds but turned it down because those are things I would never use and so even if readers might be interested it just didn't feel right getting paid to post about it. Chances are they won't pop up too often but when and if they do just know that I'm only going to sponsor products that I really feel like I can stand behind.
I confess that I'm still watching 16 and pregnant. I blame my DVR for recording it. Yes, I set up that recording a long time ago but still. While I'm on the subject are there no teen mom's in Arizona or Colorado with teen dads that don't wear camo? In the last episode I swear I saw a camo pillow in the hospital where she had her baby and then when the baby was born he was immediately dressed in a camo onesie. It seems like all the teens on the show are from the sticks of the Midwest or the South. What's up with that?
I confess that I'm really disappointed that I won't be eating Carne Asada Tacos tonight. I've been stopping at Santana's on the way home almost every Friday since MJ has been gone but with four stitches in my mouth it would be too painful to eat something you sort of have to shove your face into. Eating a taco with a fork makes no sense.
I confess that I did not miss exercising during those 10 weeks post surgery. It was really nice not to have to worry about trying to fit it into my schedule, feeling like I had to do it or feeling guilty if I didn't. It's not that I hate exercise, it's just that I'm worn out after work and I still find it so difficult to find the time and energy to fit it in.
I confess that the Yoga video that used to be a piece of cake kicked my booty. I was actually sore afterwards and yoga rarely makes me sore. The upside is that I'm burning more calories then I used to because I'm working harder. The downside is that it means I'm out of shape!! The 2nd time I did it I didn't get sore at all so I'm already doing better. I'm going to go back to 30 Day Shred level 1 so I can get back to level 3. I didn't really miss it but once I get started it is kind of addicting because I want to improve and get back to where I was. I like being fit even if sometimes the work it takes to get there really sucks.
I confess that this is the first time I've blogged this many days in a week since I marathon posted about our Maui vacation in December. Four times is nothing for some people but it's kind of a big deal for me! Don't get used to it.
