10 Truths and a Lie

Hi, friends!

You know that game “Two Truths and a Lie?” Well, if not, it’s an icebreaker game. You think of three statements about yourself: two are true statements and one is false. Then, the other people guess which one is a lie. Simple as that! I thought this game would make a fun post, so here are 10 truths and a lie””many of which are based on things that happened yesterday, but some are totally random. Feel free to guess the lie in the comment section!

Breakfast was a perfect 40/30/30 (40% carbs + 30% protein + 30% fat). (I entered my meal into MyFitnessPal to determine this.) The combo was: 1 egg + 1/2 cup steel cut oats, 1/2 cup Stonyfield plain Greek yogurt, and 1/2 tbsp of Teddie Peanut Butter. I only aim to hit this ratio by the end of the day””not for individual meals””but it’s pretty cool when it happens!

I bought Quinn some new toys yesterday. He loves the xylophone at daycare, so I wanted to get him one for home. We tested out a bunch of different options at Babies R Us and eventually decided on a Baby Einstein play paino that he loved immediately. Look at that concentration!

Ok, let’s mix it up with some random facts”¦

The guys at CrossFit have been raving about this thing. I’m tempted to buy one myself just so I don’t have to foam roll all the time. Think it would work?

Mal and I started watching Parenthood on the recommendation of a few friends. We’re only two episodes in, but we’re not sure how we feel about it. Should we keep watching it? Does it get better?

We have a big bag of peanut M&Ms in our refrigerator, but I haven’t eaten a single one in 3 days.

I like my pillows like I like my pancakes: soft and fluffy.

I finally tried the S’mores Quest Bar (nuked in the microwave, of course), and I am obsessed. Now I am debating buying a whole box. Is that a good idea or a bad idea? Side note: Monica told me about this Groupon deal for Quest Bars, but, unfortunately, they don’t have the S’mores flavor.

I don’t ”˜like’ cat photos on Instagram.

When I make pureed bananas for Quinn, I always steal a couple of bites because they are so good!

I sleep in a bra every night.

I ran 6.25 miles on the treadmill last night and felt awesome””probably the best I’ve felt since starting my marathon training!

Question of the Day

Which statement from above is a lie?



  1. I think it’s the cats on instagram. lol….such a tiny thing you slipped in there. But then again, I don’t really care about the cat pics, dog pics….totally a different story. Specially if they are of the same breed as my dog.

    lol, I saw all the comments that people don’t sleep in bras, I sleep in a lightweight bra, my tatas are more comfy with it.

  2. MAn that is hard but I think this one is a lie…..

    We have a big bag of peanut M&Ms in our refrigerator, but I haven’t eaten a single one in 3 days.

  3. I have to go with the peanut M&Ms statement solely on the fact that I wouldn’t be able to resist for 3 days.

    AND YES, you have to keep wathcing Parenthood – it takes a few episodes to get in to, but by the 3rd or 4th, you’ll get hooked. I want to be a Braverman!

  4. I agree with Peggi – I don’t think you could have peanut M&Ms on hand and not eat any in 3 days!
    And YES, keep watching Parenthood – love that show. Have watched it from the beginning. So sad that this is the last season.

  5. I almost picked the M&M one, but I think you’ve been trying to be really good. So I’m going with “I sleep in a bra every night.” That sounds awful!!!

  6. I would hafta say the lie is not eating any m&m’s (only bc I know I wouldn’t be able to resist haha).

    Keep watching parenthood. I’m on the 4th season and LOVE it!!

  7. a little late but parenthood is my hands down FAVORITE show. i binge watched all the seasons last winter and this this final season wow i am not emotionally invested. the bravermans are the greatest family! keep watching!!

  8. I’m not sure if someone already asked in the comments but I was wondering how you added the egg to your oats? I saw that you made the oats in your crockpot and wanted to try it out. Thanks!
