Friday Confessions

Hey you guys! Happy FRIDAY :)

So glad it’s today & not yesterday anymore. Ugh. Bad day mania! A good cry, some almond butter, and early to bed made it seem a bit more bearable though.

And today is starting out nice & early–I am subbing for a friend, a 5:45 a.m. BodyPUMP class! LOVE that time to teach.


Today I leave with you some confessions I am sure you’ve all been wondering about. :)

Friday Confessions

1. I eat casein protein powder almost every night now….and I keep finding ways to eat it in a variety of yummy forms!

  • c.powder + water + cottage cheese + cocoa powder + cinnamon + AB (mix it all up)
  • c.powder + water + cinnamon + cocoa powder microwaved for 1 minute and then AB + butterscotch chips added in for the last 30 seconds (top it with crumbled protein muffins)
  • c.powder + water + cinnamon + cocoa powder + stevia + AB microwaved & then dumped on top of frozen yogurt as a ‘chocolate sauce’

That’s about as creative as I get in the kitchen, my friends.

Obviously this is no food or recipe blog.

{I can’t believe I just admitted that?! But when I do make something & share it here with real measurements, then you know it’s good.}

2. I just finished season 1 of Once Upon A Time on Netflix.

That’s kind of scary how fast I went through those all.

You find time for things that matter to you, I suppose! But now our apartment is a bit messier than I’d like it to be…..

3. I still can’t stop eating sweet potato fries. Mmmmmmm!

Guess I am being consistent there, ehh? :)

4. My husband is super sweet & knows when to ‘just listen.’

I need to be better at that. I tend to always want to dish out advice!

5. I keep sleeping in by a few minutes from my ‘normal’ time & its glorious. Minus today, of course!

A few extra minutes here & there really count! And my body is thanking me.

6. We went to Costco last night and I wanted to buy the whole store.

Oh wait, we did.


7. I am totally enjoying every bite of my NEW P28 bread, thanks to P28 & Lauren!

She secretly sent me a box of the stuff, complements of P28, and I can’t get enough. It’s high protein bread, and it tastes like bread. It is a tad bit chewier, but I love chewing (more time to savor), so this stuff is perfection for moi.

Thanks again Lauren (and P28 people) for the thoughtful gift and for sponsoring my latest meals!

8. I bite my nails when I am bored, contemplative, or have nothing to do with my hands.

It drives my husband crazy! What grown woman bites her nails still?!?

I sometimes paint them to help me stop it, but that doesn’t seem to work that well either. Gahhh!

9. I am secretly super excited to represent the Simply Bar tomorrow at the Gluten-Free Expo. :)

{well, it’s not so secret anymore, huh?}

If you live in UTAH and want tickets, email me. And then come visit me and Ashley at our booth (& get free samples too).

10. I am sooo over the election season.

Can we all stop being rude & unkind to each other & remember what this land was founded upon?! #thankyouverymuch

{But really, could Biden please stop smirking & laughing for one second? It was annoying, and I think he was slightly drunk. or high. or both.}

There you have it, some deep dark confessions of mine that I am sure you were dying to know about! 😉


Make it a GREAT day, ya all!

What are some of YOUR Friday confessions?? Do YOU regularly use casein protein powder?? What are some of YOUR weekend plans??

  1. I’ve never had casein protein before – I should change that. And I”ve heard so many great things about that p28 bread… crazy amount of protiein! I want to try that! And I do still bite my nails (eek!) – that’s why I try and keep them painted!!

  2. I’ve been having casein at night too! I usually just mix it with unsweetened almond milk and stevia and throw a few chocolate chips. It works for me!

    I don’t bite my nails but I definitely pick at them.

  3. Sorry about your bad day yesterday! I had similar feelings on Wednesday but yesterday turned things around for me and I’m right back on the smooth sailing train now!:) It’s funny how things get stirred up every now and then and can throw us off for a bit! Glad to hear your Fridays starting off well! Enjoy the weekend!

  4. I LOVEEEEEE Costco!! Seriously, feel you on wanting to buy the whole store. The fruit (berry) section alone is fabulous! And I agree – I’m ready for this election season to be over as well. Let’s all go back to semi-getting along.

  5. Confession #1….I watched Biden last night for about 20 minutes and thought he looked and sounded great…very knowledgable and just sick of the whole Republican thing…ha! I think its great how people can watch the same thing and come away with totally different views. Such is life.

    Confession #2….I still bite my nails…so much easier…ha!

    Enjoy teaching…I love the new 83.

  6. I’m sorry you had a rough day yesterday! I hope today is MUCH better for you. :) I’ve been wanting to try that P28 bread! Glad to hear it’s good! Aaaand YAY for the expo tomorrow! Looking forward to it!

  7. yes! i love p28!

  8. my confession: I’m super jealous of this P28 bread! They need to make some gluten free, just for me!

  9. I also am addicted to Sweet Potato fries and believe you cannot leave Costco with less than a full cart, impossible.
    My confessions:
    1. My internet was out for a week and I realized I am an Internet addict.
    2. I set myself a 10pm bedtime, and break it every night.
    3. My favorite TV show was meant for 14 year olds.

  10. Love your confessions! Hmm, my confession would be- I also bite and pick my nails. Painting them makes it more fun, because I like getting the nailpolish off haha- then I have this trashy half painted nail look going on.

  11. I want to try that P28 bread! Everyone raves about it, although I do love my ezekiel lots. Not sure if something could replace that.
    Sweet potatoes are totally addicting, I can’t stop eating those delightful orange foods!

  12. It’s ok, I bite my nails too. Someday, I’ll stop, but today is definitely not that day!

  13. Dohhh sorry to hear that you had a bad day :( I hope it has been 100% better ever since! I have always wanted to try that bread, I have heard so many great things about it, plus the nutrition stats are pretty much awesome

  14. P28 bread sounds SO cool! Too bad it isn’t GF!!!
