Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Honest Award

Being honest is easier when it’s anonymous. I would never be able to speak so freely if I knew that there was someone from my "real life" reading this.

I really like to try and be as honest as I can on here. When I come back here to re-read this I want to REALLY KNOW what it was that I was feeling, and doing. I will totally admit that reading back is occasionally difficult, embarrassing and hilarious. Which tells me that I am often on the right track.

So thank you to Sheilah/Mensa at I'm on my way for the Honest Scrap Award., and for commenting and leading me to your blog so that I have someone else to perv on!! She did a list of 10 honest things about herself... I'm going to do the same!

  1. I am afraid of spiders, ghosts, and most crawling insects. I crashed my car when I was 21 because there was a spider on the sunroof next to my head.

  2. I have broken my nose 5 times…its crooked now and I’m totally self conscious about it.

  3. I wish weight loss were easy and not such a struggle.

  4. I’m a lefty, and I love being that little bit different!

  5. I was once a medical test subject for an apatite suppressant in the UK.

  6. While there, I learned that my over eating has nothing to do with physical hunger.

  7. I avoid conversations regarding politics and religion, which is made easier by the fact that I am a Canadian living in the US and will never get to vote!

  8. I have never voted before in my life!

  9. I have size 11 feet. I’m hoping that when I am down to my goal weight, they will go back to a 10.5 or 10.

  10. I should be working right now! HA!!

Back to it now!

Oh wow... spiders and insects... I can't deal with them either... especially cockroaches!

Loved your #10! LOL

By the way, I'm petrified of any and all insects and rodents. I have had bad panic attacks in the car when I've seen a bug -- even a housefly. I have almost jumped out of a moving vehicle to get away from a spider on the dashboard. So yeah, I know what that's like!

Love your truths, Tamzin. When I was given the award I wasn't told to share 10 truths but that is a good idea for my next blog post. It is also a good way to get to know people better by sharing trivial things that gives clues to who we are in real life. I love that. :)

Love your list. I had a spider CRAWLING on me once when I was driving. Though I was freaking out on the inside I remained calm, pulled over, got out of the car and did a dance until the spider was off. My kids and hubby enjoyed the show.

Loved reading your list.

I think if you're not honest on your blog, then you're doing yourself a disservice. Kudos to you for your award.

I might literally die when someone I know in person finds my blog, especially if it is a co-worker. Right now, my hubby is the only person that knows about it. I am sure my sister will be upset that she didn't know once she finds out. I just feel that if others knew, I might be more guarded in what I write and I don't want that.

I can totally relate to the spider phobia. I had one dangling from my sunroof about eye level while I was driving and I freaked out at first but then reached for the nearest paper or napkin I could find and did away with it.
