#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | The Random Fill In

Oh hey there. The usual stranger checking in for my weekly confessions.

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


Ok on to confessions...

I'm on the struggle bus hard when it comes to eating. I told myself, and a friend (sorry Kayla!), that I was going to do Whole30 this month and I've kept pushing it back and pushing it back. I finally started on Monday strong, including meal prep Sunday, only to have it come crashing down last night when stress, hormones and frustration led to a Cafe Rio run instead of me cooking dinner #itwasworthit #startingoverdayonetomorrow #damnyoufood

In other news I finally connected some dots on an issue I was having. Remember when I shared with you all about how I'm washing my hair less? And I admitted that it was causing scalp problems for me? Well then I saw an article about this Facebook post and it hit me. Maybe it's not the washing less, maybe it's my beloved Batiste causing the problem. It's been one week since I stopped using it and it's 80% better. So I need a new dry shampoo #andseriouslywtf #dangitbatiste

Along with cutting out Batiste I've just been rocking the greaseball look at work #noshameinmygame

This weekend I told myself I'd do yard work. Judging by the jungle of weeds in both my front and back yard it didn't happen. I just hate pulling weeds. Any tips for motivating myself on that one? Maybe if it was a different kind of weed #happy420 #becauesnothingelseworks #andmyyardlookslikeshit

We got Gunner 3 years ago yesterday. Seeing it pop up in my feed made me swell with happiness. I can't believe a spur of the moment decision ended up being my best friend. Happy bring-home-iversary Gunner! #obsessivedogmom #gunnertheredgolden

I started doing yoga class two weeks ago. It was my first attempt ever. I was already an inflexible person, but add in the 6 weeks I spent on crutches earlier this year and I'm whole new level of tight. Upper body strength is lacking too, I can barely hold downward dog for more than 30 seconds. It's a work in progress, that's for sure. I just wish I could share video of it all for you so you could see me shaking uncontrollably, with zero balance, huffing and puffing while doing this thing that's supposed to be "relaxing" #notsomuch #itsfreakinghard #crossyourfingersformeitgetsbetter

Lastly I just have to Fangirl SQUEEEEEEL that Game of Thrones airs this weekend!!! Eeek! Who else is excited? #winteriscoming #johnsnowis?

Hope all is well my friends - I need to get caught up with you! Link up so I can follow along!

  1. Hi, first time linking up! *waves* You pretty much described me in any non "gentle" yoga class. I have zero physical strength and can only hold each pose for like .4 seconds. And I spend the rest of the time internally cursing all the people that are just effortlessly going through class like it's nbd. UGH THE WORST. I also am supposed to be eating healthy to but that is just not happening at all. Yay for Game of Thrones! I watched the whole series last summer, so this is the first time that spoilers are something life and death haha. (but actually....)

  2. I seriously laughed out loud at my desk at the yoga gif :) haha
    Look at your baby as a pup... so stinkin' cute!!!
    I HATE LOATHE DESPISE pulling weeds. it makes me so itchy. (I'm not helpful, am i?)

  3. I went back to yoga yesterday after weeks (cough.. months) away and it was a new instructor. I about died. She had us doing this dolphin crap and planks. All I wanted in life was childs pose.

  4. Happy Gotcha Day to Gunner!
    Grease head is why I can't stop washing my hair every day. So gross, then it breaks out my face.. all the nasties.
    I haven't watched any of my shows since last June and I kinda want to, but I kinda don't want to watch GoT.. I mean FB will tell me what happens anyways,right?
    I did yoga with Teh German last week and it was his first time and I chose a really bad video for him to start out. Buttt, that video was way better than me just bringing him to a yoga class right off the bat. AND I seriously need to get some workouts on, I don't want to look like this when we go to Germany but Teh German is the master tempter and not going to the gym is way more fun that going.. oh and eating all the things.. and why did I buy 2 boxes of clearance cadbury eggs? Now I have to eat them!

  5. HAPPY GOTCHA DAY GUNNER! I squealed out loud when I saw that picture. what a cute little babyyyyyyy

  6. I would love to try yoga, but I would 100% look like the gif.
    Garnier makes great (and cheap) dry shampoo!

  7. I love yoga. Keep working at it- you'll develop some balance and strength soon enough :) I saw that same thing about Bastiste. I don't use my very often but now I guess I need to pitch it.
    I love that Brad-Pitt-eating-things meme. He's so cute when he eats. Or just all the time. Happy Gotcha-Day to Gunner!!

  8. I've had good luck with Dove dry shampoo! I don't use it too often, but you can't beat the price regardless. It works pretty well for my hair.

  9. Game of Thrones! Game of Thrones! Game of Thrones!!!!!!! I'm pumped, too! Good luck getting back to normalcy with your hair, I'm glad you found the culprit!

  10. Whoa, I've never had that issue with Batiste! Honestly I'll probably still use it since I haven't had any problems, but at least if anything like that happens I'll know what to do!

    That Psych gif is soooo me. And it cracks me up. Um I hate downward dog more than anything. My head always hurts/I feel lightheaded when I do it.

  11. yayyyyyy game of thrones! and yes to the yoga.. it is only relaxing when i do like a super relaxing video at home, but otherwise i'm with you on the shaking and huffing and puffing. that sucks so bad about the Batiste! that is like my life blood, i will never switch. but i'm glad it mostly solved your issues when you cut it out.

  12. GAME OF THRONES! Awhoo hoo! I cannot wait! I need to know about Jon! He's currently the background on my phone. Ha!

    The yoga will get easier...or so I hear. I did it once & has a lot like what you described but I liked it & would like to do it some more. :)

  13. Ahhhhhhh that thing with Batiste freaks me out. I will say, I have been purchasing the one for brunettes lately. It leaves a dark residue behind which I am fine with the day that I use it. But I notice that the next day after I shampoo my hair in the shower, I can still scratch off the dark brown residue. Like it is super hard to clean. I would have never noticed this had it not been dark. Makes me want to think twice about using it!

  14. GAME OF THRONES! Yay. I was so excited. I had issues with the classic one. It didn't work unless I used a ton of it. I switched to the brunette one and that's been helping. Unfortunately, I don't think that would help your problem :( Try Not Your Mother's. One of my blonde-haired friends swears by that one.
