One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Quick Food Journal with a Snack Idea!

15 Comments 1982 views

I don’t have much time tonight. My site was hacked again! This time it wasn’t as invasive but still. Some Jackass interjected Viagra ads into all of my files! WTH? I mean seriously!

*deep breath*

I’m not going to focus anymore energy on it. Anyway, here’s my quick food journal today. I’m returning to my simple format. I want to track but doing a full week in loss mode is too much for me right now. I have a lot going on.

So on to this snack idea!

Tonight I just wanted something. You know, “something”. So I took a VitaTop out of the freezer and let it defrost on the counter for a few minutes. Then I and cut it in half. Not in half, like in half but in half so I ended up with two full circles. Does that make sense? Then I proceed to top one of the halves with ¼ cup of Breyer’s Free and squished it down with the other half of muffin. TADA! 2 point Ice cream sandwich!! How COOL is that?! Yea, yea I could have bought a skinny cow or something, but I didn’t have any on hand and this was a nice substitute.

Sorry no picture, I’m a bit lazy tonight. I’ll snap next time I make it. OK, Gotta run.

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.

    that’s awful about the hacker! Some people really need to get a life! The ice cream sandwich sounds yummy and easy. I am always looking for a quick snack like that for the kiddos or me or whoever just happened to drop by. Today all I had for my nieces was healthy pb cookies I made on Sat. and some cheese ;) I will have to keep the freezer stocked with supplies for summer treats!

    I was wondering what was going on. I went to the site and there was a bunch of file folders showing with a bunch of code.

    It’s so unfair – in the US you have soooooo much choice when it comes to food for healthy eating. In the UK you have to go to 5 different supermarkets or just eat fruit and vegetables. You would be so disappointed with food over here

    It makes life so much harder for us british wannabe-slims.

    I have no control with those.
    one top makes (makes. it’s out of my control :)) me eat 12 more….

    Hi Roni,
    Another good low fat “ice cream” sandwich idea. Take the chocholate flavored graham crackers (not chocholate covered!) pot fat free or low fat whip cream in between to make a sandwich and freeze for several hours. It is very good! I usually make them in the morning if I am going to have them in the afternoon/evening. My son has always liked them.

    The summer bake sounds wonderful and light! I wonder how it would taste with Fiber One, or maybe that would be too sweet. I’ll have to experiment.

    In a dish like that, a little cheese goes a long way, especially if you go with a mixture of moz. with parmesan or something. The “tang” of the parm allows you to use much less.

    Sorry about the technical difficulties, Roni. I wonder if these guys just choose their sites randomly without looking at the subject matter?!?

    I just found your site about a week ago and love it. I just started blogging about my weight journey and you have given me courage to be real about the struggle. I like your food journal tool alot. Thanks for sharing.

    That is a fantastic idea! Unfortunately, I lack the will power to keep ice cream in the house, so I may try this with a little Cool Whip Free. :)

    Sorry to hear about the technical difficulties. Hackers stink!

    Also, I realize my advice here is completely unsolicited, but your menu doesn’t look very full to me. I realize you weigh a lot less than I do, but it doesn’t look like you’re eating very much, especially if you’re working out a lot. And you’re not meeting the GHGs. It’s just something I noticed.

    Love your site, and the ice cream sandwich sounds yummy! I might have to investigate. :-)

    that’s funny, well not really. I have been getting serious spam about penis size as well.

    Hehe, I kept reading the line “Not in half, like in half but in half so I ended up with two full circles.” and wouldn’t let myself move on until I got it. Then yes, finally it clicked (I never said I was a geometry expert…or even novice!). Then I read further on and it makes complete sense. I wasted all that brain power. :)

    Hope the site stays e.d. ads free for awhile!!

    Don’t those hackers know that we don’t need viagra?? We’re all eating healthy and getting plenty of exercise here…we’ve got plenty of energy! ; )

    Seriously, don’t let the hackers or critical comments get to you on a personal level. Keep up the great work, doing what you do so well. We love it!


    July 31, 2008

    boo hackers…
    Thanks so much for all of the work that you put into this site and the others. I really like them.


    July 31, 2008

    Hey! I haven’t been getting your comments in my email! What is GOING on with technology lately!


    Real quick to the person who said I didn’t eat enough, sorry no time to look back. I did that on purpose to make up for the last few days of over eating! I ate until just satisfied, I do normally eat more! Just thought I should address.

    Thanks for everything guys, off to post something fun!


    July 31, 2008

    Roni, I’m the one who said you didn’t eat enough, and I’ll admit that I only looked at your food journal today. Thanks for the reply though!
