Thursday Confessions V

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared some confessions. . . so here we go. Smile

1. I don’t like kale. I know, I know. What kind of strange breed of blogger am I? I *think* I just haven’t had it prepared in the right way BUT it always makes me gag a little bit when I see other bloggers put it in their smoothies. Spinach yes. Kale no.


2. I’m afraid of Canadian geese. I had a bad experience once where I was running past a pack of them and I think I got too close to their nest and they basically tried to peck off my knee caps while I was running past. So, now I run faster when I see them and go out of my way to avoid them. . . and yes, I totally used zoom to take this picture.


3. I don’t know my right from my left. Ok, well I do, but I am super bad at giving directions. There has been more than once that I have told Scott to turn left and then been confused when he turns left and I really wanted him to turn right. I honestly don’t know why he puts up with me sometimes. Thankfully, I am pretty good about using L = Left. Winking smile Yup, I’m special!

4. I love iced caramel macchiatos but really don’t like hot ones. Strangeness, right? So, basically, I only go to Starbucks in the summer, because let’s be real, nobody wants an iced drink in MN in the winter, am I right?


5. I eat Oreos while watching Biggest Loser.Yup. And I think it makes them taste better. Winking smile


Your turn – what’s your confession?!?

Linking up with Amanda today for Thinking Out Loud!

  1. Yes, kale in smoothies nast-ayyyy. The texture makes me gag. Kale chips and well-prepared kale salads are pretty good. But I’m lazy so I refuse to eat it at home… only when I’m out 😉 And I’m dying and the L/R comment!

  2. LOL I agree with #1 (it also makes me want to gag) and #2 (when I am forced to run by them I close my eyes and sprint).

  3. Haha that’s so funny about the geese. On our campus we have a statue of Canada geese because they apparently represent unity and all kinds of great things. Turns out they’re just assholes haha.

  4. I prefer iced coffee too, but I still get them through the winter. Am I nuts?!

  5. Haha I think that Canadian Geese are terrifying too. One of my favorite running trails goes around a pond that usually has a pack of geese, and I’ve ran away screaming (a few times) from angry, hissing geese

  6. I agree on kale. Yuck!! Geese, the Canadian Honkers are nasty. Oh and I binge on popcorn with real butter when I watch BL.

  9. I hate kale too! I’ve tried it every way possible and still can’t stand it. Kale chips? No thanks! They taste nothing like chips, and I don’t know who other bloggers are trying to kid!

  10. Omg kale. No. I had a bad smoothie experience with it when I first started my healthy living journey, and let’s just say it traumatized me for life. Spinach I can do, but kale I refuse. That and collard greens — I’m not quite sure how people can put that in their smoothies either.

  12. Although I don’t mind cooked kale or kale chips I hate kale in smoothies too! It gives the smoothie such a bitter taste! I don’t understand it!

  13. I’ve had a bad experience with Canadian geese as well. One flew from across a lake to come honking and charging at me. Crazy!!!

  15. Kale takes a while to get used to for sure. You know, I think that being a group fitness instructor really messes with your head when it comes to directions. Because I’m used to mirroring the class when teaching BODYPUMP or BODYATTACK, I often have to think twice about directions in real life. You’re not alone!

  16. Is it just me, or are the Halloween Oreos better than the other versions??

    ICK. KALE. NO! It’s good REALLY sauteed with some sesame oil or garlic, but raw or “massaged”….oh god, it gives me the shivers.

    And isn’t it pure nature to eat shit while watching The Biggest Loser? I seriously think everyone does it!

  18. Haha, I love #5! Been there, done that! And as far as left and right go, I’m happy I’m married for many reasons and especially because it reminds me which hand is left and which is right! 🙂
