It’s the first confessions post of 2015 and I just know you have some secrets to spill!!!

–My Christmas vacation had a rocky start. We were dismissed from work early on the 23rd due to bad weather. Tornadoes. So I was already on edge. I was sitting at the red light less than 10 miles from my house and BAM! Someone rear ended me. I am not going to lie, I was feeling quite discouraged about the holidays starting out like that. So glad it took a turn for the better after Christmas! #makinglemonadefromlemons

–Speaking of the accident, I was in a pretty bad accident my senior year of high school. I had nightmares for the longest time about car accidents and that sound that they make. I have been in three accidents since then. One of which someone else was driving and was rear ended so hard we got shoved in to the car in front of us and her car looked like an accordion when we got out. This is the second time I have been rear ended in my current car. When I hear that sound, I start to shake and all the memories come rushing back. #thefearisreal

–Basically I think my car is cursed and I want a new one! I hit a deer in it the year I got it and now two accidents? #cursed

–I am actually really excited about Whole 30. I didn’t link up yesterday because I wanted to finish my vacation recap but I plan to discuss my reasons for doing it along with some of my food choices next week! #operationme

–Our Christmas stuff is still up and I just want it put away!!! I cant believe it has come and gone but when it is over, it is over for me. Time to focus on the new year and getting the house back in order! I should finally have some time this weekend to do just that. I feel a huge purge coming on. #ocd

–I really want a diet coke. Breaking a bad habit is hard. I didn’t even drink them that often but now that I know I cant have one, every time I hear a can pop in my office I want to punch someone in the face. #beingreal #damnwhole30

–I really want to want a planner. Let me rephrase that, of course I want one. I just really want to use one for an entire year if I get one. #consistencyiskey

Confessions in ecard

I know it's not talking about this, but I mirror people's expressions when they talk without even realizing it. Makes me very self-conscious.:

But, dang it, that's a good 27 minutes for me and everyone else.:

My hobbies include eating and complaining that I'm getting fat:

It really feels like you have your life together when your house and your car are clean at the same time.:

    The third someecard = me!

    All you whole30 people are making me feel guilt…big, fat guilt.

    I wanted to put the tree up on the 28th(ish), and my husband was like “can’t you leave it up until the 1st?” It was pretty cute, so I did.

  • Reply Myra January 6, 2016 at 1:37 am

    Ugh, I have such a fear of accidents too. I’ve been in a couple of bad ones and now when I see cars zooming up behind me at red lights, I start to cringe until they have safely stopped behind me! I’m glad you’re okay after your accident and that the holidays got better, girl!

    And the eating & complaining I’m fat ecard = my life at the moment, lol. xo

  • Reply Katy January 6, 2016 at 8:32 am

    “to find funny” hahahahaha that’s to funny. 😉
    And, that sucks about the accidents and your car! Boo! I put a tree into the engine (yep) of my little Nissan NX2000 in high school. It had been my dad’s auto cross (parking lot racing club – lol which makes it sound a LOT dorkier than it is) car, and he was like devastated. He will still from time to time remind me about “killing his favorite little car”.
    I dunno about Whole 30, but I definitely need to cut down on carbs. Definitely. And we bought a 18 pack of Pepsi for the NYE party. Everyone drank Coke. So guess who has been drinking all the Pepsi? #badkatybad

  • Reply Blake January 6, 2016 at 8:43 am

    I always buy a planner… and then use it for one month out of the year. I wish I could keep it up, but I honestly don’t have much to write down in one.

  • Reply kathy at more coffee, less talky January 6, 2016 at 9:08 am

    LOL the coffee one!! i’m in a fantastic mood during my coffee but the second it’s done, it’s rage all the live long day hahahah!

    sorry about the accident; it sucks so much. get the new car – TREAT YO SELF!! also, i’m superstitious (it’s an asian thing) and i would get rid of it because in my mind, i’d think it’s bad luck!!!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine January 6, 2016 at 9:14 am

    See, I knew I had reason to be worried about you!! Dang, as if you weren’t frightened enough with dumb Mother Nature and then the hassle of an accident!! So so sorry. But I love your positively and gusto in tackling the Whole30. I’m not doing so good yet with my eating, but I will and doing fine on exercise but it’s so hard so super proud of you!!!! My husband drinks 5 diet cokes a day…horrible, I’ve begged him to quit buts he’s gotta want it, lol!! Gave a wonderful Wednesday!!

  • Reply Cara January 6, 2016 at 9:47 am

    So glad to hear you’re okay! That has to be a scary feeling! Maybe you really should cease the moment and convince your hubs it’s time for a new car! haha & I’m with you on the pop drinkers of the world. There’s a girl in my office that drinks a coke every morning with her breakfast and I’m pretty sure I roll my eyes every time she opens it, as I try to be really good and limit myself to only drinking soda on my cheat day. It tastes so good, yet is so bad for you! #thestruggleisreal Hope you have a great day!

  • Reply Laura January 6, 2016 at 10:18 am

    Hahahaah, we have to buy shoes now, because we can’t spend our money on awesome food. Oh wait, we get to spend it on the expensive ass grocery bill for Whole 30! I am totally with you on the Diet Coke — I gave one in our refrigerator the stink eye this morning. I think you need to get rid of that cursed car — no more Nadine in accidents, please.

  • Reply Audrey January 6, 2016 at 10:51 am

    I totaled my car my sophomore year of college and it took a very long time to get comfortable in the rain and snow again. (I hit ice the day after Christmas.) Even playing Mario Kart made me dizzy and sick because I had flipped my car in the accident and it was just such a shock to my system. I’m glad your holiday season improved!

  • Reply Carly January 6, 2016 at 10:53 am

    Crap! I’m sorry to hear you got rear ended – that sucks and is scary. People are so dumb. Love that you’re doing a Whole 30! I’ve done it twice and love it. Well, hated it too hahah. I thought about doing one this January, but since we’re only living in Charleston for a couple more months I didn’t want to deprive myself of all the delicious restaurants. Paleo Nom Nom was one of my favorite places for Whole 30 Approved recipes.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says January 6, 2016 at 10:59 am

    Sorry about the accident! When my middle sister was in high school/early college, she got into 3 accidents in the same car and got rid of it because she thought it was bad luck. I don’t think she’s had one since #justsayin’

    Re: soda. I finished my Whole30 just about a month ago and I have had zero cravings for soda. I thought it would be the hardest habit to break. Turns out, it was the easiest. I just don’t miss it. And I have a new found love for seltzer (just check the ingredients to make sure it only reads “carbonated water”). It’s great for when you want the carbonation of soda without all the crap.

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston January 6, 2016 at 11:02 am

    I felt the same way about our christmas stuff – as soon as we came back on Saturday I took it all down and it feels good to have space again!! haha i’m the same way with planners – I last about 6 months and then want another one! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply alyssa January 6, 2016 at 11:24 am

    omg, I’m so sorry to hear about the accident! I hope you’re feeling okay and there’s no serious damage to you or your car this time around.

  • Reply Dani January 6, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Car accidents suck. I remember when I first got my license, I were stopped and someone rear-ended me so hard I hit the car in front of me too, and I couldn’t go to school for several days and was having terrible nightmares; I was so traumatized. I’m glad you’re okay though and the rest of your break got better!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph January 6, 2016 at 12:03 pm

    I’m so in the habit of using my planner for everything. Consistency is totally key!

    I’m glad your shaky start didn’t ruin the holidays for you!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo January 6, 2016 at 12:32 pm

    I feel like some of my cars are jinxed too… I get it.
    & yep, memories of dramatic things will always stick with you. Glad you were OK being rear ended, but what an awful time for it.
    My christmas stuff is still up & I’m loving it – I dont want to take it down 🙂

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots January 6, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    I have the worst trouble sticking to using a planner so I haven’t bought one this year because I don’t want to waste it. I’m so sorry about your car accident! I have been in about four accidents in the past 10 years and I am a terrified driver now, I hate being in the car. I get shaky sometimes especially around tractor-trailers since one hit me before.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo January 6, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    The diet coke struggle is so real. I have a bit of a soda addiction and it’s one of the hardest things for me to give up. Once I start craving sweet, I want it in drink form. Is that weird or what? So basically the whole 30 days all I’m going to want is a diet coke. La Croix will have to do for now. Seriously though #damnyouwhole30

  • Reply Michael January 6, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    Um, if this is the first confessions post of 2015 I need to reprogram my time machine 😉 Couldn’t help it… but really though… I’m certain you meant 2016.

    As usual, your ecards are straight from my gray matter. How you do it I just don’t understand.

  • Reply Stephanie January 6, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    I don’t drive much, but I know what you mean about the accidents. I was driving my mom’s SUV to Indiana for a Hawkeye game and we got rear ended – we were stopped on the highway (Chicago rush hour) and some woman, with 3 kids in her SUV!, came so fast she rear ended the car 4 cars behind me! And it pushed alllll the other cars forward enough that the guy behind me hit mine. It wasn’t bad at all because he tried to swerve it, so he just dinged a corner. But I remember the sound for sure and now if someone else is driving and stops suddenly (JOHN), I check the mirrors to make sure they aren’t about to get rear ended.

  • Reply kristen January 6, 2016 at 2:31 pm

    i love my planner! get one! haha. i never thought i’d use one for the whole year, but i totally do.

    i feel you on the accidents girl. i’ve only been in one, really, and for like 6 months after, every time someone was driving behind me, i was convinced they were going to rear end me. actually, my accident was a 5 car accident – the 5th car hit the 4th so hard that it hit the 3rd and they hit the 2nd and the 2nd hit me. (or i guess that would be the other way, 1st car through 5th being me but whatever). it’s scary as shit. i feel you.

    girl text me (or a-hole bro me/us) when you want a diet coke. i REALLY wanted one yesterday but i stayed strong. it’s so hard because they are free at work. but believe me you can do it! of course you can! hope your whole 30 got off to a good start. i meant to ask, is Chris doing it with you?

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis January 6, 2016 at 3:52 pm

    I took our outdoor Christmas lights and decor down so our neighbors don’t think we’re weirdos but everything including the tree is still up in the house. lol Hoping to find the motivation to take it down this week. Good luck with Whole 30!

  • Reply Tricia Coniglio January 6, 2016 at 4:10 pm

    I am a fan of good grammar and hate it when people can’t spell properly! I haven’t been on Blogger in ages so I am going to have to catch up this whole “can’t drink soda” thing. And the “Whole 30” thing!

    Funny thing is that I felt amazing this morning during and after my cup of coffee and now….. not so much. I am glad to get onto Bloglovin’ and see you to say hi to. Let’s see who else I remember 🙂

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders January 6, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    Haha I love the “to funny” ecard! I can’t help but exchange “also” for “too” when I’m typing. I’m glad I’m not the only one who still has Christmas stuff out! I’ve been avoiding putting it up because we were out of town too, but now I’m starting to get anxiety from how messy our house is. I know what I’m doing this weekend lol!

  • Reply Amanda January 6, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Pop is one of the hardest things to give up, regardless of how often you drink it I think… sometimes there’s just nothing that will taste better!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer January 6, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Good lord, girl. I can’t believe you went through all of that right around the holidays! So glad you’re okay! We took our Christmas stuff down pretty early… J asked if he could help so I jumped on it! The house feels so much better now. I’m actually kind of happy it’s gone. Cheering you on during Whole30! You’ve got this!

  • Reply Kerry January 6, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    I keep trying to give up diet coke but it doesn’t stick. GLad you are okay and that you didn’t let it ruin your holidays.

  • Reply Lauren January 6, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    I haven’t taken the time to take my tree down and I honestly don’t hate it… Andrew wants it up til the Super Bowl at least but has asked for the whole year. That’s a little much!

  • Reply January 7, 2016 at 7:17 am

    oh no about the car, plus your history with them. I actually hate driving, and for some reason a lot of the women on my mom’s side don’t drive. and omg let’s not talk about diet coke. i want one!! or 5!!

  • Reply katie January 7, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Oh no! I’m sorry to hear about your accident, but I”m glad you are okay. I hate that fear…I was in a bad accident in the snow a few years ago and am still terrified of driving in icy and snowy conditions. At least this winter is looking better than last year! It’s awesome that you are doing the Whole 30! Go you! And boo to xmas decor going down. I’m the lamo lazy that leaves it up until February and it’s awkward (but also fun…i think!)
