My Sensational Sunday Recap Real Quick

8 Comments 1265 views

I have 10 minutes before Mad Men and I’m falling asleep so I’m gonna make this quick!

This morning I loaded the marathon mix on the ipod and started my day with a run. It was my first since the actual marathon and the death of my Nike+. :( I ran about 5K (just over 3 miles) as calculated by MapMyRun.

After the run, Ryan and I got dressed and headed to Lancaster to visit a friend who’s getting married this spring. We joined her on a trip to a wedding expo and had fun walking around tasting cakes and leafing through generic wedding albums. I’m not being sarcastic we really did have fun! It was a blast! (what can I say, we aren’t too hard to please)

On our way home we stopped at a farm stand stocking up on winter squash and falling in love purple cauliflower which we roasted for dinner and served with some moroccan inspired chicken. It was delish and fun to make.

After dinner we cleaned up, made lunch and dove into the candy bowl. It was a great day and an amazing weekend. I really disconnected from all work and responsibilities. I needed that. I REALLY needed that.

I’m gonna go and enjoy the rest of my weekend but not before sharing my food journal. I decided to count points today. I’ve been feeling like I need a bit more structure.

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.

    We can do this! Today is a new day! Let’s all put away the Halloween candy (except for maybe 100 calories/day) and drink lots of water and take good care of ourselves!!!

    That dinner looks so good! I love using those strips- they defrost easily and cook up fast too!

    You’re on CNN!

    I saw a headline “Newborn inspires mom to lose 71 pounds” and I thought, hmm, that sounds like Roni. And there you are!

    Sounds like a great weekend, Roni, and that chicken looks delish! Beautiful cauliflower too! A friend of mine makes this outstanding low-cal cauliflower dish… basically fries up the cauliflower in a skillet with olive oil till it’s brownish, then adds tomato paste, and a lot of spicy goodies like chili powder. It’s amazing. Trying to get the recipe from him. Have a GREAT week!

    When you go to replace your Nike+ you should get a Garmin such as the 405. Absolutely amazing!
