SINS: Week 2

It’s been about a week since I posted my first Sorry I’m Not Sorry, inspired by Rachel Wilkerson. And I have to tell you…having that little mantra has been freeing.

So, here’s my latest version.

There has been a lot of pumpkin backlash in the blogworld this season, but I freaking love it. Pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin bread, pumpkin oatmal, pumpkin spice in everything. It’s really the only way that I can mark the passing seasons in Florida. Sorry I’m not sorry.

When I see bloggers posting their split times for training runs, I mentally add 5-10 minutes to their total time because I know they pause their Garmins while waiting for stoplights or taking potty breaks. And if I don’t add on, I’ll feel even more inadequate as a runner. Sorry I’m not sorry.

I have a full stock of stevia at home and at work but sometimes I choose the Splenda, just because I like the way it tastes. Sorry I’m not sorry.

Sometimes I think about dressing up for work more often, but then I think about how comfortable my sneakers are. Sorry I’m not sorry.

I get annoyed with some friends on Facebook who seem to share every political thought they have in their heads, so I hide their statuses because I’m too scared to actually unfriend them. Sorry I’m not sorry.

I wear the same workout clothes without washing them. I febreeze them and hang them up to “dry.” I get at least two wears out of almost every outfit. Sorry I’m not sorry.

I roll my eyes at the meatheads at the gym who walk around with gallons of water and ripped tank tops. They spend hours working on their bodies and I can’t stand the sight of them. Sorry I’m not sorry.

What are you NOT sorry about this week?

    I rewear the same two sports bras throughout the week. Febreze makes my asthma flare, so no, they don’t get febrezed. Sorry, I’m not sorry. I do wear clean workout shirts, because I don’t like smelling myself at the gym, if I can help it.

    I also am excited for pumpkin spice things, because it IS chilly where I am and it’s comforting and homey when I drink a pumpkin spice latte. Now, if only my local coffee shops would have Chaiders (big train chai mix, which is a powder, mixed with hot apple cider. It’s AMAZING).

    I’m the same way with political/religious FBers. I mean, I really don’t mind a few here and there. But when the majority of your updates are of that nature, you’re being hidden! If only FB would come up with a way to NOT “suggest” people that I’ve already unfriended (or have unfriended me) I’d go that route. But until then, I’ll stay chicken & just hide them.

    Love that the acronym for “Sorry I’m Not Sorry” is SINS :-)

    I’m totally with you on a lot of these. I don’t have a Garmin, and don’t REALLY want one. Stopping a watch at ever intersection just sounds ANNOYING!

    And, oh Facebook. I have some friends and relatives who say absolutely ridiculous stuff related to politics, stuff that is CLEARLY meant to piss off people on the “other side.” It annoys me SO MUCH! I live in DC and stay as far away from political discussions as possible. The polarizing nature of it all bothers me so much! GET over yourselves. You’d actually get work done if you stop pointing fingers at the other side.

    Love, love, love these. I’m going to have to embrace this saying more.

    I roll my eyes at people who decide to eat pizza but blot the grease off it first. I believe if you’re going to eat pizza that means eating the grease too – it’s part of the package. Sorry I’m not sorry!

    I re-wear my workout clothes alll the time and I don’t even Febreeze them! I figure if I’m running outside alone, it doesn’t matter if I stink. For the gym though, I try not to wear the super-smelly clothes.

    I second that facebook one and add to it: I get super annoyed when people who are pregnant make every update about the baby and change their profile pic to their ultrasound. I really have no desire to see your uterus on my computer screen. Sorry I’m not sorry!

    I totally do that with my workout clothes at well, after all, isn’t it a waste of water to wash them all the time? That’s what I tell myself ;)

    I spend way too much money on getting coffee outside, and it’s one of the things I enjoy spending my money on the most. Sorry I’m not sorry!

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I feel the exact same way. Include stoppage time. The clock doesn’t stop during a marathon.

    LOVE. Thanks for posting.

    This is my favorite! I hide them all the time!! :-)

    Not even sorry for not being sorry that:
    -Most of the jeans I own have never been washed unless they feel too loose and need a good roll-around in the dryer.
    -Chances are, if you see me sitting at my desk, I’m not wearing shoes. Ever.
    -I do 30 Day Shred in my living room wearing mismatched socks, smelly old shorts, and a neon pink sports bra. With the glass door wide open for a breeze. If folks want a show, they got it.
    -I plan nearly every meal that I’m going to have immediately following the consumption of the last one (or earlier). I do this with zeal.

    I delete people off FB when I don’t like their status.. forget all that hiding crap. sorry i’m not sorry.

    I don’t have any intersections to stop at while I run – the town I live in isn’t big enough for a stop light. muchless anywhere to stop to pee, unless i’m peeing on the side of the road, and i’m not. but if you want to add 2-3 minutes for time i stop to stretch that’s fine. but 10 minutes, that’s just getting crazy.

    I seriously love this blog addition.
    hmmm… I do blog work and read twitter more than I listen in class somedays. Today (right now) is one of those days.. I’m not the least bit sorry.

    Ditto this!! I am so sorry…not. LOL

    Hmm… I’ve done the very same thing with friends on Facebook. And I agree on the pumpkin — I love it. I love everything about it. Regarding the stevia, I get it. Stevia just tastes kind of gross. I’ve gotten myself too afraid of Splenda chemicals that I usually either do things unsweetened or use real sugar instead.

  15. says

    Oh, totally add 2 hours to my running times because sometimes I stop and take a nap in the park. And I’m never sorry about that.

    Ben loves Splenda. It’s random because he won’t do any other fake products – especially no butter substitutes. God forbid.

  16. says

    This is such a great feature. Reminds me of the Get Over It Line one of our local radio stations does. :)

    I am annoyed with the people who constantly complain on FaceBook about everything that’s going on in their lives. If it’s that bad, do something about it. Also, the couples who communicate to each other on FB drive me nuts as do the ones who have a joint FB account for two people. Sorry I’m not sorry.

    I also don’t get the point of a private LinkedIn account. Isn’t the whole point of LinkedIn to network? Sorry I’m not sorry.

    Hmmm, haven’t showered in 2 days; taught bootcamp, did a treadmill interval workout, played a tennis match and ran three boys around. Hadn’t even thought about being sorry for it! But I won’t share my lack of hygiene on FB!

  18. says

    I might be a little late but this was too funny not to comment on :)

    I dislike pumpkin. It’s just meh to me. I skip over a lot of pumpkin posts. And that’s fine.

    I wear obnoxious color combinations when I run and roll my eyes at people who roll their eyes at me.

    I try to skip runs in the rain because I just because don’t want my hair to get wet.

    I wear clothes that feel like pajamas to work.

    I ate three “meals” in a row that were just pure sugar and it was delicious.

    And I drink coffee with splenda every day despite people telling me its “bad for me”.

    Sorry I’m not sorry! :)

    Very amusing post :)
    Especially the FB one. I love pumpkin too.
    But I have to say… I don’t believe in pausing your Garmin! (But, I’m not super fast either). There is no “pause” on race day, therefore there is no pause for my training runs. If you stop for 30 seconds for traffic, even if you brief, you are resting and your HR is decreasing, so your watch data should include that time.
    I haven’t jumped on the Splenda train and I haven’t tried Stevia. Sugar or bust! SINS.
