Another Truth Is post to end the week. Through these posts my readers can learn more about me, and I can be more open and real to my readers. It’s a form of journaling for me, and I loved the idea from Lisa, at RunWiki.
Also, the winner of my Thirsties Cloth diaper giveaway is Manda. Manda keep an eye out for an email from me with more information. Thank you all for entering!!
Truth is……I say I just want a day to relax and not worry about chores, cleaning, groceries, cooking, blogging, emails, bills or errands. A day to completely and absolutely do nothing. The reality is that I can’t relax. I may say it all the time: “I just want to relax!!” but my body doesn’t know what relaxing means. My Type-A, go-getter personality doesn’t welcome relaxing, no matter how much I say I want it. Even going to my sisters, I pack a workload of stuff. I have to be doing something!!
Truth is……I am a very planned person. I have a plan for a plan. I can’t leave the house without a plan. Weekend plans, week day plans, vacation plans, race day plans, you name it I have a plan for it. It makes spontaneity hard for me. My sister is always saying to me “I always have to have a plan for you don’t I?!” Even when going home to visit family, I find myself asking, “Well what’s the plan mom, when I get home?” If my husband says we should go downtown this weekend, I am sure to reply “And do what? Go where? When?” Maybe it’s a complex 😉
Truth is……I hate being late, and so I arrive at least 10-15 minutes early to everything. Well that is until I had a kid, and Baby R decided she had her own time schedule. If something/someone makes me late, I can get very irritated and stressed. My mood can even change. I’ve been that way since a kid. At times it makes me nervous and stressed when we’re running late.
Truth is……I am not a fan of thunder and lightning storms. In fact, they scare the living daylight out of me!! Yes, I am 20 something years old and have to have someone sleep with me if there’s thunder and lightning. Living by myself wasn’t fun when these storms occurred. My husband on the other hand loves them. I always think of scary movies, where the bad guy/murderer appears with the flash of lightning giving away his location….I know thanks Hollywood!!
Truth is…..Greasy pizza sounds good sometimes. “Gasp!! The nutritionist says she wants greasy pizza.” It’s true and I am not ashamed to admit it. 90% of the time I don’t give into my craving, 1. Because as a nutritionist I know way more than need be about it’s nutritional content, which is enough to make me say no and 2. Because I feel I have an image to uphold (I guess that could be a post in itself). “What would others think?” Sometimes though in life, you just need the greasy pizza and you shouldn’t feel judged for wanting it.
Until Next Time Be Whole and Be Fit
Tell me a “Truth is….” about yourself? Something I don’t know about you? Do you enjoy thunder/lightning storms?

I can relate to every single one of your “truth’s” Every single one. Guess that’s why we’ve always been so connected. I feel like my fight or flight response is always turned on full throttle. It’s exhausting, but I have no way to turn that faucet off. Please someone tell me! The only thing close, that helps is going for a walk or trail run- 10 minutes of relief. Love you so much. You are my long lost sister, twin separated at birth… something.. you’re it.
I know maybe we were separated at birth!! Ian it funny how is so exhausting and that’s the very thing we want is rest!?! But we keep going!!
So excited about the giveaway. I will watch for the email. 🙂
Truth is…I love being spontaneous (or really maybe it’s just impulsive) and struggle with plans ( unless it has to do with vacations and running). I do like plans but it seems that when I go to implement a plan it doesn’t go as “planned” and then I get angry so I just decided that I’ll make a loose plan and then flow with it to keep my sanity in check 🙂
I hate being late too but my hubby doesn’t care(I think he enjoys being late!) and I have two children so that has calmed me down a bit and made me less stressed about being late.
Love lighting and thunder storms but they are a bit scary sometimes if they are super close so I can understand that.
Thanks for sharing Kristie!! Hope to see you soon
