I confess – I didn’t think I had anything to confess today!
But after consulting with friends… I offer up the following.
I confess, I actually like ‘diet food’ – salads, yogurt, fruit, grilled chicken, vegetables, salmon, brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa… The salad jar idea from Friday is now sitting in my fridge for my Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday lunch! My problem is that I also like the non-diet foods – cookies, cakes, brownies, ice cream… As a treat to myself, I am ridding the house of the non-diet foods. None of us really need them and they will be more of a treat if they only occur outside the home. I will confess to feeling quite virtuous for this which is sure to trip me up at some point!
Also, I confess, once upon a time I knitted – and worse yet – modeled (yes runway style), hotpants.
I’m not sure I looked as good in them as this young man (I’m assuming – although those legs do look more clean shaven than mine). And his may actually be crocheted, not sure but didn’t want to look much closer. Mine did feature ‘Dazzle’ yarn in pink with purple trim and peek-a-boo holes running down the considerably short sides. It was the 70’s, need I say more? There were white go-go boots involved also.
And lastly, just in case the previous confession left a bad taste in your mouth, I confess to really enjoying being in my mid 50’s. I have the freedom and confidence to do things that really interest me. No longer afraid what someone else may think of my latest interests. I’m OK with asking questions someone else may think are stupid. I have the time to spend knitting (no longer hotpants though), reading, taking long walks, taking a class at the local university just because. I don’t even care how goofy I look in my glasses!
These confessions may not seem related, and granted they are a bit random – however, hopefully you can each relate to at least one of them (I’m thinking the hot pants confession is going to be the common link).
Enjoy your week! -M
