One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Sensational Sunday with Sauce and a Snack Attack

9 Comments 1299 views

The title pretty much sums it up.

Ryan with meatballsThe day started with a bit of sauce making.  Notice my little chef in training and his FABULOUS play dough meat balls! It way my way of keeping his eager hands out of the raw meat. Worked like a charm! We even “baked” his in the microwave (no heat of course) and pretended to eat them. ;~)

I did not go to the gym today BUT I worked my tail off, cleaning, moving furniture, organizing.  I love starting the New Year off right so I spent some time just taking care of nagging household chores.

I also got ready for a small get together I’m having tomorrow night.  I’m doing a bunch of finger foods, hummus, shrimp cocktail, baked chips & salsa, fresh veggies.  I love hosting because I’m in control.  I’ll post all my updated recipes and maybe my whole party spread on GreenLiteBites in the next couple of days.  

Now on to this snack attack.  I don’t know WHAT happened between 10 and 11PM but I just wanted something sweet. I couldn’t shake it so I splurged on some sour patch kids.  I probably ate too many but at least it was better then those gosh darn smidgens.

For those wondering, a smidgen is a local candy company’s evil joke of putting the most creamiest, glorious peanut butter in the most smooth, milky, silky chocolate you have ever tasted.  Thanks GOD the husband has almost knocked them off and I know I can get some guests to indulge tomorrow.  I know, I KNOW it’s bad but more for them is less for me and I’m cool with that!

No menu today, I didn’t really jot anything down so it would be from memory anyway.  Check back tomorrow as I post my New Years goals and I have a surprise on the 1st!  

Talk to you tomorrow!

Update:I CAVED and had a few smidgens right before bed. Man they are TOO good! I must get rid of them today! ;~P

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.

    Roni I like your NYE plans. I am… very far away from home right now. How far? Let’s just say I am three time zones ahead of the ET and south of the equator right now. But even with my plans that are way out of control, I will stop when I am satisfied tonight no matter what. I am committed to no mindless eating tonight. Have a SAFE and Happy New Years everyone!
