A Sensational Easter Sunday

How could it not be when I’m so blessed with a family like this…

I’m going to cut this short as I’m exhausted but I wanted to check in since I didn’t post in a couple of days. I planned to but with company and the holiday time just got away from me. And frankly, I barely spent a minute on the computer. It was actually a nice break.

Dinner went exactly as I planned it. My favorite dish was…

Like I said, it’s a salad based on this idea I posted on GreenLiteBites. The Dressing came out great and everyone seemed to like it!

I also loved, loved, LOVED the potatoes.

I made them exactly like this but added some sweet potatoe as well. They were actually TOO good. I had to pawn the leftovers off on my Father-in-Law. I can’t be trusted with that many roasted potatoes in the house and a husband who doesn’t eat them.

Overall it was a good day on the food front. When you serve lots of healthy things it’s kind of easy. I only fell apart AFTER everyone left. Honestly, I had a tinge of "old Roni" mentality creep in after I ate a peanut butter egg.

"I might as well have ______ I already ate _______."

"Well, there’s only X number left I should just finish them so I don’t have any in the house tomorrow."

I don’t think this mentality will ever fully go away.

So, I did eat a wee bit more candy then I should have. You’ll have this. As we talked about yesterday…

It’s not what we do occasionally that makes the difference. It’s what we do consistently.

Tomorrow’s a new day and it’s back to doing what I do consistently. :)

In other news…

I’m weird. I know. ;)

Ok, time for bed.

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.

    Hi Roni, I’ve been a fan since 2007, and in the UK, but never posted before, but todays post really inspired me. I love the way you described and recognised the inner war that goes on with food when every one had gone home. This is me also! I think it’s great that you can move on recognising it is consistent behaviour that is the problem. I’m surprised and in a way relieved that you think you will always have that mentailty, (relieved as I also still battle with this very problem with almost the exact same words) but like you say it is the consistent behaviour that will win out. Thanks for a fantastic blog.

    These food photos look delicious and so healthy. I have to try the roasted potatoes – I love that there’s carrots and onion in there – I’ll have to throw in full garlic in mine as I can’t resist! Thank you for continuing to post the old/new WW pnts, it’s awesome. I have a weigh-in tonight and I think it’s going to be a great one. Beautiful family photo by the way, it’s fun reading your Babble blog too as DH and I are thinking about starting our own family.

    Get out of my head please! LOL I swear you pulled this one from my brain: “Well, there’s only X number left I should just finish them so I don’t have any in the house tomorrow.” I do this all the time and then “tomorrow” I hate myself for doing it!

    I agree with you, Roni – sometimes I don’t ever think that old mentality will ever go away. We just learn over time how to manage it better and better! I often say to myself “Today is a new day with a new opportunity to make good choices! ”
    You have a beautiful family! So glad you had a wonderful Easter!
