I was out for a run yesterday when I had an idea for a series of blog pots that would focus on those things that maybe I’ve been keeping to myself… afraid of saying out loud (on line) for fear that you would think I’m weird.

Well, the fact is: I am weird.

I can accept that now. So here I am for my first TMI Tuesday (tmi as in “too much information”). We’ll see how long the “series” lasts.

The idea for this series came to me as I started my run. I had a lot of sore muscles in my legs and butt from doing the “Legs & Shoulders” workout from P90x on Saturday. Sooo sore.

So there I was, starting my run very slowly. And as I jogged my way up the path, my butt bounced with each and every step… in a way that made me wonder if I needed a sports bra for my butt… because it hurt with each bounce. And I thought: I should write a post about this.

Crazy, right? But that thought lead to an idea of starting a series of “true confession” type posts. Everything from how compulsive I am about candy to how long it’s been since I last showered… and many other topics that aren’t always the most comfortable to share (but I believe that by sharing these things it makes us more human, more real, and if nothing else gives us something to laugh about… and who doesn’t like to laugh?)

Anyway, today’s “tmi” isn’t that bad but I thought what inspired it was funny. And I have other stories… so many stories and embarrassing confessions. Stay tuned.

What funny moments have inspired you in your life?

Great post–you might look muddy, but it’s a bit like being naked when you share these sorts of personal tidbits. So thank you for sharing. :)

I got news for ya, P: we’re ALL weird! “Weird” is normal. :-)

Good for you guys that you did the Muddy Buddy Run – AWESOMENESS!

Definitely makes you honest and real, no two ways about that! I’m a fan of true confessions, though I think I’ll always keep my shower schedule to myself. :)

Cute, cute photo! I can’t believe you did that race & kept your face clean! They have one of those here in San Diego too- on the Marine Corps base, but I have never tried it (yet).

I love your post. Love true confessions… and could totally relate to that one. I think up blog posts when I run too ;)

Ha! Well it’s great to know I’m not the only one with such crazy thoughts :-) Looks like your muddy race was fun too.
