One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


First Sensational Sunday of 2009

17 Comments 2053 views

Today was one of those crazy days where I just kept doing things. Kept checking things off the list but the list wasn’t getting any shorter. Like I wasn’t making any progress. Even so, it was still a Sensational Sunday!

It all started with toddler breakfast time. My favorite part of the day and our daily tradition. Today he chose pink and blue cereal with Cheerios. Translation: Frosted Mini-Wheat’s Strawberry Delight mixed with Frosted Mini Wheats Blueberry Muffin mixed with Cheerios in a bowl with milk. I believe this is his first "recipe". :) He also had an egg and some fresh blueberries. I had leftover Chocolate Banana Pancakes with Easy Blueberry Topping. Just as good the second day!

After breakfast we got dressed to look at a house. The husband and I are kicking around a possible move. We love our house but it would be nice to be a little closer to city. We aren’t too serious about it just yet but I love the hunt. I swear sometimes I think I should have been a real estate agent.

For lunch we stopped at McDonald’s. Guess who’s choice that was. :) I stuck with a salad and my usual nibbles of fries and nuggets. When we got home it was nap time. Not for me, of course, for the toddler. I got some work done and went for a quick run. The first of my training (which I updated).

For the run I made a new crazy play list. I’ll try to publish it this week. After the run more computer time, while doing the laundry. Then dinner. See… I kept doing things but they are just menial tasks. Right now I’m sitting in a disaster zone, with 3 more loads of laundry to fold and bills to pay. YUCK!

YET! It was a Sensational Sunday. I know because I made (overall) good choices, got in a run, organized the toddlers clothes and cleaned out his drawers (desperately needed to be done), started on my new tech blog AND the toddler declared that it was a GREAT day while eating dinner! That’s somethin’ right? :~P

So I think I’m going to sign off, watch Nostradamus, get the rest of this laundry done and possible pay the bills. We’ll see. For me a Sensational Sunday is defined by starting the week off on the right foot and I’ll feel so much better if I wake up tomorrow with all those things done.

Oh! And I am hungry right now. I may make myself a snack. I’m thinking tortilla pizza! :)

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

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.

    It’s always great to start out on the right foot. It gives such motivation to keep on trekkin’. :D I know for me, one bad day ruins my mindset and begins a series of several.

    All I can say is after a week and a half of overindulgence and not counting points, I CAN’T WAIT to get back OP tomorrow!!! I ready to get back on track and kick the rest of these pounds to the curb!!!

    Congrats on a sensational day! Maybe tomorrow will be a Marvelous Monday?

    I was wondering how you get your run charts into your blog from Nike+? Are you just using screenshots or is there a code or something I can copy and paste from Nike to my blog? Thanks, Roni!

    It’s just a screen shot. I’m a simple girl. :)

    Soo did you enjoy the show and do you think the world will end in 2012? I intend to enjoy every day as if it were!! : )


    January 5, 2009

    Oooh a tech blog – I’m intrigued! When’s that launching? I’m a total techie geek – I’m looking forward to that Roni!

    I woke up too late this morning, looked around at my usually tidy house and thought I need a day like that-there is stuff everywhere. Thanks for this simple everyday real life post Roni! Sometimes we just need inspiration for everyday and you gave me mine today! Good thing I spent yesterday making and storing delicious healthy food so I won’t have to spend a lot of my precious time today preparing meals. Thanks Roni! Have a productive Monday too!

    If we got one thing done over the holidays, it was cleaning. Well, mostly cleaning along with some “hiding” of things. (Nothing like sweeping dirt under a rug and calling it good.)

    And I recorded the Nostradamus show last night. Looking forward to watching it!

    Happy New Year everybody. It starts TODAY for me. I gotta work off that bad, bad week last week. I laid it out for all to see on today’s blog post…

    Tech blog? Wassup…did I overlook a post where you explained??? Curious minds gotta know!


    January 5, 2009

    I love looking at new apts./houses too! So exciting :-)


    January 5, 2009

    House hunting is SO exciting! We tried to sell and upgrade last year starting in April. It is a GREAT time to buy but a really bad time to sell. Our house set on the market for 6 months with only 10 or so showings. So….I guess we will wait. Good luck if you decide to try!

    Sabrina – You missed it! I talk about it at the end of this video…

    It’s not going to be too crazy… just an outlet to help others with blogging stuff, maybe some HTML and JavaScript tricks.

    Angela – That’s what I’m nervous about! Although we may build so there’s a buffer there which may work in our favor. We’ll see. It’s is fun to look though!


    January 5, 2009

    Sounds like you got a lot done and made good choices. Good for you!


    January 5, 2009

    Congratulation on a Sensational Sunday!! Making the right choices is definitely not easy sometimes, but it sounds like you did a great job of it!

    I look forward to your tech blog also! (I’m trying to learn more and more!)_

    Sensational Sunday!! I am so stealing that !! I LOVE IT, and it can set the tone for the week, I tend to slack on Mondays with working out but whenever I workout on Sundays it sets a great tone for the week, thanks for reminding me!!!

    Question for you about the Nike+ kit , does it help you train or is it just fun to see your progress? I am training for a 175 mile 12 person relay race and need to be able to run 10-13 miles straight I got the kit for Christmas and really want to start using it…but don’t want it to be something that gets old. How much do you love it???


    January 5, 2009

    Deana – It does help you train. It has training guides, or you can make your own. It even tracks your goals. Here’s another screen shot I took when I reached a goal…

    Honestly. I LOVE it. When I forget my iPod or the batteries die I hate to run. LOL The Nike+ is motivating to me as I like to see the stats. :)

    Have you used it and synched. It should launch the nike+ web. Explore around there, lots of cool things!!
