I have a new goal.  A goal I hope to get you all to make with me.  A goal to make every Sunday… Sensational!

My first Sensational Sunday started with a bang! A little feel good closet clean up.  I decided to combat my Friday Pizza woes with a feel good clothing purge.  I went through all of my old jeans, wait, let me rephrase that to sound even better, all of my old “skinny jeans” and tried them on.  I would wear these jeans when feeling good and having a little success on my many weight loss journeys.  Jeans I strived to get back into with each weight loss attempt. Jeans I was keeping around because a small part of me didn’t really believe I became the size I am today.  Well I’m happy to say they are gone! I donated them and  said goodbye to that size.  I’m also happy to report that I tried on each pair and as I slipped baggy pair by baggy pair on I felt more and more empowered.  That’s an odd word but it’s true.  I threw away pair after pair of jeans that for the majority of my life I struggled to stay in or strived to get back into.  I threw them away because they are TOO BIG.  Saying that aloud makes it even more real even after trying them on and having them fall off. It truly was a surreal experience. Note: I kept one pair just for those days I don’t recognize how far I’ve come.

In addition to the great jean giveaway, I had a FABULOUS morning with the toddler.  We danced out to the fun punk sounds of the 5.6.7.8’s, made omelets and shared a can of tropical fruit for breakfast.  I love this age! He now pulls up a chair and puts the cheese in his own omelet. It’s just too cute!

Then it was off to the gym for me.  I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and the upper body circuit.  I feel great and can’t believe I’ve become a gym rat. You have NO idea how strange it is for me to say that.  

After the gym, I dropped off the jeans and hit the grocery store to stock up on healthy food for the week.  I came home, finished the laundry, cooked dinner, prepared my lunch for tomorrow and went for an hour long after dinner stroll with the family. It was GREAT! 

So why am I telling you all this. Well, I think motivation is contagious and I think we can start a movement, a movement to begin our weeks, ever week, with a sensational Sunday. If we take just a little time to recognize what we have, where we are, where we’ve been and where we want to be we can set the tone for the week.  I plan to do this every Sunday and I hope you will join me. 

So what do you say? Will you make every Sunday a Sensational Sunday?

    Roni,
    Thank you for your encouraging updates! I am new to your website but have been so refreshed by what I have found..thank you again. I am trying your asparagus recipe tonight, wish I had some crab meat to with, I am in California so it would have to be canned..would that work?
    One more thing I was shopping with my sister today and found the perfect size 10 Levi’s…so comfy and then it hit me after reading your entry..they are ten’s like the 5 other pairs of jeans in my closet…not my goal! I have some cleaning out to do myself…hopefully soon!

    Congrats on your Sensational Sunday! Sundays are hard for me because they are the day we eat at the in-laws so I have usually saved up my weekly points for Sunday. I love your idea of a sensational day, but I will be picking another day – maybe sensational Saturdays or Fabulous Fridays!

    Sunday’s are great days – try church in the morning, it makes things even better, and it reminds us we are not alone all week!

    Thanks for a very uplifting Sunday post… was a great reminder to me to enjoy the little things.

    Sounds like an awesome day. I filled up half a garbage bag of MY clothes and the other half was full of too small stuff for the 4yo. It felt great to get that stuff out of my closet.
    I brought almost a full bag home from Frenchy’s on Thursday evening (2nd hand) with size 14s. I feel, um, sensational.
    Cheers,

    My friend Claire and I have switched out regular meeting on Wed. at lunch to go on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. There were about 45 people there (as opposed to the maybe 10 on Wednesdays). I’ve lost more weight in the last two weeks of going Sundays than I did in the last 2 months! I feel I do better on the weekends, knowing my weigh in is Sunday, then I am in the zone all day Sunday preparing for the week, so I too will have sensational Sundays! I love your site Roni!

    I had a sensational Sunday too and felt rejuvenated and ready to face today at school. I actually had a great day today too which has been rough since the beginning of the school year. I am with you on sensational Sunday’s..count me in!

    Love your site as always. I will have to agree with Lisha that having a church and knowing the Lord has made a tremendous difference in my life. If you ever want to know more, email me and we can chat.
