One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Sensational Sunday Shots and Silliness

10 Comments 1763 views

It seems all Sunday’s start the same, with laundry. Since Little Man wakes me up at the crack of freakin’ dawn, I’ve learned to take advantage. We roll out of bed, dump the hampers and start sorting. Then we bring it down stairs to start the first load before breakfast.

Today was a bit of a fruit fest. I cut up a pear while Little man went to town on a pomegranate. He’s my official little pomegranate cleaner. :)

Anyone remember this gem from our archives? The TODDLER and I show you how we clean pomegranates. He’s been doing it for 3 years now! INSANE!

Besides the pomegranate and pear we tried our first ever Green Smoothie.

As you can see.. it was a big hit! Click here to see how we made.

We rounded out breakfast with a few hard boiled eggs. It was perfect!

After breakfast we got lots of miscellaneous stuff done, cleaned up the kitchen, folded laundry, yada, yada. Pretty boring stuff.

Then I hopped on my computer and happened to catch this post on Mrs. Fatass which led me to JourneyBeyond Survival’s Fundraising Page. JBS is a mere 25% from raising enough funds to get a therapy dog for her daughter. I felt and feel compelled to share the link. I donated and hopefully you can too. Every little bit helps.

While surfing I had a leftover bowl of Spicy Meatless Meaty Kale Soup while Little Man and Husband played Lego Batman. I’m proud of myself for finding ways of getting more leafy greens in during this pregnancy. I’ve been feeling good with my food choices even though I’ve been snacking my way through most evenings.

Soon it was lunch time. I made the boys sandwiches. Specifically a HAM sandwich for Little Man which seems quite fitting…

He cracks me up when he’s not annoying the CRAP out of me. ;)

I kept my lunch light, sticking with some carrots dipped in my new obsession

becuase I was meeting a friend for a lunch/movie date. We both wanted to see Black Swan which was… ummmm, alright. Not the best movie of the year but I enjoyed it. Natalie Portman was amazing though!

After the movie, the husband and I finished up the laundry, I made dinner, cleaned up, packed tomorrow’s lunch, read some stories and sent Little Man to bed. Again, boring stuff.

Right now I’m indulging in a chocolate craving with some super dark and waiting for Louis C.K. Hilarious to come on Comedy Central. He’s one of my favorite comedians of all time. Here’s a clip of him talking about 5 year olds that CRACKS me up. Be warned he’s like most comedian. Translation: He tells it like it is and curses. A lot.

Ok, he’s on in like 5 minutes. Gotta go! :)

Update: I’m watching and he did this bit on parenting that’s pretty funny….

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.

    I really loved Black Swan. It starts crazy slow, though.

    I cannot belive your child knows how to clean pomegranates and I’ve yet to try it. I think I should be ashamed. :p

    Green smoothies are amazing. My favorite combo is spinach, banana, almond milk, and a smidge of peanut butter. The best flavor combination EVER! :)

    OMG that’s was an hilarious video!!! And hilarious pics of Little Man too!!
    You did make me feel old though. I remember that pomegranates vid, but that wasn’t three years ago. Maybe just 9 months ago, at most. AT MOST! I said AT MOST!

    Here is my favorite comedian . Same disclaimer (cursing, only click if you’re an adult, VERY politically incorrect). Being a latin man, I just LOVED the last part of the vid. A must watch!!

    Love Louis CK! Have you seen Maria Bamford? She’s soooo funny. Cleaner than Sarah Silverman, but just as funny.

    Wow, your son really has your face! I love your family time, it is so sweet.

    Love Louis CK myself, especially the stuff about his daughters. Saw him in Cleveland last fall–awesome! I even cried at the end of his show last season, as the camera panned out form the waffle shop… :)
