One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Weekend Wrap Up

13 Comments 1855 views

Is there anything better then a weekend? Seriously. Since returning to work I value my time between 5PM Friday and Sunday night more then anything. Hanging out with my boys, hitting the gym, COOKING! Oh how I love it!

Saturday morning started off with the boot camp class at the gym. It’s really the only hard core workout I do regularly and I really do love it. Every week is different. We do cardio, strength training, circuits, everything and anything is game. I get bored easily so a class like this is perfect for me.

After class I hung out with the family, made soup and sandwiches and got ready for the little guys first ever soccer game. We signed him up for an indoor under 6 league. Here he is during the pre-game practice.

I can’t believe how nervous I was watching him play. He was one of the younger kids, some of his team members were zipping around the court but the coaches were great. I was impressed and awed by their patience.

Amazingly the little guy scored a goal. A GOAL! In his first game ever and his expression was priceless. I was never a big organized sports person (always so self conscious and still am) but with his Dad’s love of sports and my new passion for fitness, I hope to build his confidence early.

After the game we came home, cooked dinner and played. I got creative in the kitchen making, Pork and Bran Flake Schnitzel while the husband and little guy raced the hot wheels. :)

After dinner we played Wii. I have to admit we’ve been a bit obsessed with it since Christmas. Wii Sports Resort has given us a whole host of new games to compete with and the husband and I are a little more then competitive with each other. Our favorites right now are Archery (I DOMINATE him) and basketball (He KILLS me). We also have a blast canoeing which, by far is the best workout. We were huffing, puffing and cracking each other up last night. lol

This morning I hit the Wii again playing Wii Fit with the little guy. We worked up an appetite and made waffles with Dark Chocolate Banana Dipping Sauce.

After breakfast we kind of just hung out and I decided to take a mid day bath. I think I might make this a Sunday tradition. It’s amazing what a warm bath and a good book can do for your soul. :)

After lunch we watched the Ravens game, hit the bowling alley, went out to dinner at Outback (I ate WAY too much- STILL full) and then stocked up on groceries for the week.

Right now I’m sitting enjoying Iron Chef. The little guy’s in the bed. The kitchen is clean. The husband is finishing up the laundry. Lunches are made and I’m ready to face the week. Which starts tomorrow at the body shop. My poor car got a boo boo this week. Don’t ask. I don’t want to get into it. It’s not a big deal, just another thing on the long to do list to take care of. *sigh*

Speaking of my to do list, keep an eye on FitBloggin in the coming weeks. There are only 67 days left until the event and I’m only *slightly* freaking out. We are positioned to sell out. I’m working with more and more sponsors and the speaker list is growing. WHAT did I get myself into?!? *nail biting*

Ok, Breath.

Anway, I’ll close with my food journal entries for Saturday and Sunday. I normally shy away from the food journaling on the weekends as I’m all over the place. However, I’m making an effort to get back into a routine as my diet (as in what I eat) has been all over the place since the holidays. As you can see I wasn’t "perfect" but I was honest with myself. That is a huge first big step.

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.

    my family got a Wii for christmas as well! SO SO addicting!!! sounds like a great weekend filled with lots of fun and some yummmy eats


    January 10, 2010

    How in the world do you fit all that stuff into your weekend? Its great :-)


    January 11, 2010

    Sounds awesome…but what caught my eye….your hubby does the laundry?!?!?!?! How’d you manage that one?!?!?


    January 11, 2010

    LMAO Amanda… It’s a long story but let’s just say that’s his ONE thing. You know, I do all the cooking, MOST (if not all of the cleaning – although now we get help with that) all the grocery shopping (unless I can get him to come with me) and all the household stuff like doc appointments, babysitters, etc. I call myself “the house manager” and I delegate laundry to him. The only reason why it works is because he’s so darn particular with his clothes and I’m not. lol

    It looks like you hada fantastic family weekend! :)

    We have the wii sports resort too. I love the ping pong and sword fighting. It’s so addictive!

    If you have the older version of Wii Fit, go for the new Fit Plus. It’s $20 without the board and all the activities are unlocked. The pest part is you can make your own routines. Don’t have to keep going back and picking what you want to do.


    January 11, 2010

    Thanks Larry! Did not know that it was only 20 bucks!

    Love those snappea crisps…my kids love them too, although they love the fresh snappeas too. My grocery store (wegmans) is selling them in a big bag now, pre washed. Makes it easier to find another veggie to eat in the winter for them. My older one does not eat cooked veggies. They also love frozen peas, just like your little guy.

    Your weekend sounds absolutely lovely. And that’s so exciting that your son scored a goal in his first game ever! What a nice way for him to begin his sports career ;)

    Your son is getting so tall! Good for him (and for you) on getting into team sports – I never could do it as a kid, but it’s something I plan on getting my kids involved with.
    Sounds like your 2010 is off to a fabulous start. Keep it up!

    I am jealous – I need WII Fit, a bath and a book, and my food network (back!)

    Yeah… When you have a regular job, you see more value in the weekends. I know I felt that way when I was still working. I felt like I wanted to cram my life into those 2 days and some hours.
