One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


A Quick Sunday Recap in Photos.

As soon as I post this I’m off to bed. I accomplished so many things this weekend but sleep wasn’t one of them.

My morning started off with a bit of a scare when this scooby pajama wearing werewolf jumped out of nowhere!

We played a bit and then I headed to the gym. Sunday is my only gym day and it was a total sweat fest. I felt amazing afterwards.

The family decided on a big diner breakfast before starting our busy day. Here’s my egg white western omelet with hash browns and whole wheat toast.

After breakfast we hit Costcos to help prepare for Thanksgiving this week. The turkey, potatoes, and veggies are bought. I have a few more things to pick up but a chunk of the shopping list is crossed off.

It was a beautiful Sunday so when we got back the child and the husband were off to the park. I put the perishables away and soon joined them playing a bit of tennis. Heading home I snapped this shot. How cute are they?!?

While I unpacked the rest of the grocers the child took it upon himself to write out a Christmas list. It all started with a "Mommy? How do you spell Star Wars?"

The next 20 minutes I spelled things for him while filling the pantry. Things he didn’t feel comfortable printing he drew. Here he is showing the list off to the Dadda.

Here’s the list. How AWESOME is that?! So proud of him.

Note: items include Star Wars, Power Rangers, paints, candy, a blue sweatshirt, a green sweatshirt, and pencils. :)

Before we knew it dinner snuck up on us. We decided on pizza so I made a quick batch of Thin Crust Whole Wheat Pizza Dough I could have ordered… could have.. SO wanted to but how much more fun, healthier, lighter, cheaper is making your own?! THIS is my strategy to overcome those munchies I’ve been having the last few days.

After dinner we played war, finished straightening up and watched scooby, of course. It was then time for bed. We read Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Just like we did almost a year ago…

I can NOT believe that was a year ago. Seriously? Where does the time go?

Anyway, once little guy was in bed, the husband and I did the house finances and then finally called it a day. Me blogging and him watching soccer.

What a day! What a weekend! I’m looking forward to a short holiday week, you?

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

    With the exception of that UGLY shirt Ryan is wearing in that picture, you have a darling darling family. You are so blessed. Put the child in a Steelers shirt and all will be right with the world.

    LOL The boy was born here and is surrounded by hordes of Ravens fans at school. He just came home one day and started saying… “Go Ra-vens!”
