One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Why I Have Sensational Sundays

I took that picture today and it made me smile. Exactly what I needed to help pull me out of this funk.

I hate blogging when I feel this way. I’m just so… so… bleh. I’m not sure what’ up with me. I had a great day yesterday. I mean seriously… GREAT! I got my butt kicked at Bootcamp, went to the little guys T-Ball game, made lunch for my boys, went the little guys first soccer game, played some putt putt, had dinner out with friends and then hit a local carnival for rides. It may sound crazy busy and rushed but it wasn’t. We had a wonderful time and spent the whole day together as a family. We really loved every minute of it.

This morning started with a running event. I ran the 6k Port2Fort today and checked off April on my 1 event a month running goal this year. I ran it a little slower then last year but that’s ok. I still had fun.

After the race I spent most of the day with the little guy cleaning up. My house has been in a state of disarray these last few weeks and I can’t help but think this is contributing to my funk. So I caught up on laundry, organized the pantry, cleaned out the fridge and straightened up overall. All while jamming out to loud music and dancing around with Little Guy. We had a blast! Afterwards we went out for our bubble blowing session and then hit the grocery store.

Another GREAT day!

SO why the funk? Well I can’t help but this it has to do with my diet. My little Note to Self on Friday didn’t really work. I’ve been in a eating frenzy. Just feeling stuffed after every meal. I’m catching myself mindlessly munching. I’m not drinking my water like I normally do. And I’m hitting the candy. Big Time.

This is why I started the concept of Sensational Sundays. Even though I feel a bit out of control while this funk. I will not let it spill over into my week. So after dinner I packed lunches. Cleaned up the kitchen and I’m about to hit the hay super early. Nothing combats the funk more then a little bit of pre planning and a good nights sleep. I have my water bottle standing by and I’ll be sleeping in my workout clothes to squish in a pre-work workout.

I’m ready to beat this funk! So even though I do hate blogging when I feel this way it’s exactly what I need. It keeps me conscious, if that makes sense.

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

    oye, i think it was a sunday like that across the board. yesterday was great for me too…a really fabulous day…then today, my spirits sunk like a rock. my washer broke (works, but i gotta manually hit that switch that the lid should hit so it will drain) and i found out that my d drive on my computer failed….and none of the info is accessible. guess what i stored on my d drive?? yep…pics of all three kiddos. i was in SUCH a sorry state today. word to the wise you all…back up the important stuff…cause the day you decide to do it “tomorrow”, you’ll lose it all…..but, tomorrow is a new day and I choose to make it good.

    Don’t worry, we all have those days or weekends. It happens. I love the fact that you have reorganized yourself and make preparations for the following week. You are ready for a new day and it will be better than the last. You rock.

    Btw, I have spent over an hour on your site. I have been reading about your weight loss journey and I am so fascinated. Good for you for all that you have accomplished. I am very impressed. I am in the process of weight loss with WW as well and so I know how tough it can be. You are truly an inspiration. I also watched the video that you and your son did for banana muffins. I look forward to making them in the coming days. They sound fantastic!

    So thank you for posting so much about your life and your achievements in weight loss. It really helps us who are struggling.

    I think the most inspiring thing (and self-control/disciplined) is that you packed your lunch, got your workout clothes on, realized your funk and did something active about it. You didn’t just sit there and go “oh hey funk, too bad.” You’re saying “oh hey, funk, this sucks but I’m going to try hard and get out of it!” And that’s why you’re successful and why I read your blog and why I find you inspiring and motivating.

    I’m glad you had so much fun on Saturday and ran a 6K! Was it raining?

    Roni..So many things get us in funks, its so normal..its human nature; women show their emotions so differently than men (duh) recent events in your life have been both tremendous and downers, and your feelings are always you find a way to pullup the ole bootstraps and go forward and kill em in a big way..warm wishes..have a Monumental MONDAY!

    We all have those kind of moods now and then. I think it is great that you took control and did all the things that you know will help you kick this funk! You have recently been through a lot and hormones take a while to even out and for everything to get back to normal.

    Wishing you a beautiful week ahead.

    You’re not alone! I always seem to have the hardest time with my eating on the weekends… and that water thing…oy. That is ME too. I haven’t been drinking it nearly enough and I think I’m feeling the bloat!!

    I love the idea of Sensational Sundays! :) I’ll join you in that! Hope you have a great week!

    Maybe there’s something going around. I’ve eaten 2 packs of Twix in the last 2 days. But I’m really proud that doing something like that isn’t a normal behavior. Seeeee? We have changed from how we use to be, so maybe we aren’t in our groove but we’ve come a LONG way from where we were! You’ll get back in the swing of things soon. :)

    sleeping in my workout clothes is my dirty little secret…apparently im not alone!!

    you’ve been through a lot lately both personally and professionally.

    Something that has really helped me is asking myself ‘what would me true self want to be doing?’ Many times we’re brought down my the voice in our head/old patterns that really aren’t who we are anymore and/or want to be.

    push through Roni. Get to those truths about who you are and keep on keepin’ on.

    btw he’s adorable.

    It’s amazing how much my diet relates to my mood…I never noticed it before. That full feeling makes me so unhappy now, I can’t believe it used to bring me happiness and comfort.

    Good luck getting out of your funk. That picture of the boy (is he still the toddler? the kid? which one? hehe ) is phenomenal. :)

    Roni –

    I have been the same way EXACTLY the same and its been awful – but today I start anew and while I cant get to the gym I packed all my food and dinner is already cooked – spent the day yesterday food prepping and am ready to get back on the old wagon!

    Would it help if I told you that your little sensational sunday posts are some of my favorite posts of all time?

    Would it help to tell you that I find your experiences amazing and that I look up to you like a big sister sometimes?

    Would it help to tell you that when I get discouraged in my life with food, exercise, church, boys, friends etc I usually find that you’ve written an amazing post that speaks to me and brings me back to reality?

    Would it help to tell you that even on your darkest lowest days you manage to bring a light to my own dark tunnel?

    Would it help to tell you that even though I’ve never met you I consider you one of the most amazing people I’ve ever ‘crossed paths’ with?

    Would it help to tell you that even with all your imperfections and insecurities you manage to change the lives of tons of people everyday, and reminding myself of that keeps me going when I get bogged down with my own insecurities and imperfections?

    Would it help to tell you that I think you are an amazing woman and that no matter what happens on any given day I trust that you will accomplish amazing things because people like you have a way of making what they want happen?

    I hope some of that helped. Because you’ve helped me ton :)

    Been in a funk myself lately. Talked a little about it today on Jack Sh*t’s site… I don’t know what it is either. Can’t put my finger on it… I did take 40mg of Celexa this morning though!!

    Great pics!

    Hey Roni, I’ve been following you for a couple of years now… I’ve been in these off and on funks lately as well. I love the Sensational Sunday concept! I’m going to adapt that mindset this coming weekend – hopefully it will help me get some stuff done around here!
    Your little guy’s shirt caught my eye – my 5 year old loves Power Rangers! I think we are on the backside of the obsession and moving onto Pokemon though – not sure if I’m ready for that…
