One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

That’s what my husband called himself today. It cracked me up.

Today was also almost back to normal. My niece is gone but I’m still recovering. That sounds bad but you know what I mean, getting back to our routine. It has seriously been crazy around here since the summer started. Is it possible I can busier when I have my summers off?

I’m not sure if I told you but this Saturday is my yearly family trip to the beach. So I feel like I’m in vacation limbo just coming back from Vegas, watching my niece and now getting ready for the family vacation. I’m pretty lucky having my summers off and being able to take advantage of that but not having a “normal” daily routine is throwing me off. It’s almost easier to be on plan when I’m working full time. I eat breakfast, pack my lunch and snacks, come home and make dinner. Now it’s more of a grab something when I’m hungry or bored kind of thing. It is not impossible, just different.

Anyway, here’s how my day shaped up. Not the greatest but I did journal again. Tomorrow I plan on weighing in and coming up with away to use the umpteen number of tomatoes that are coming out of my garden!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I’m also going to have enough tomatoes coming out of my garden to feed a small country, so if you find something to do with them…let me know haha.

    I’m a very “routine” person, and I don’t like to get out of it. So I can completely understand you feeling out of sorts while your niece was there and you were out of the routine…enjoy getting back into it :)

    Something is wrong with my sidebar. I am missing some of the things I have up. Plus I can’t get to the admin from my site…the link is gone.

    Loving Each Day!

    My hubby feels the same. But blogging is my version of golf. And it’s much cheaper. :)

    I do enjoy your blog!
