One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


SLEEP! I need some.

Something strange has been happening to me lately. I’m hungry in the morning but I don’t know what I want. It’s weird. Today I decided on quick smoothie.

It was perfect. 1 cup frozen raspberries, non-fat yogurt and some honey. Delish!

A little bit later I was hungry so I grabbed another Larabar…

My morning and work was then interrupted by this Little Bean…

He’s getting more and more alert. It’s amazing and it makes me cry for some sappy reason.

Anyway, lunch was out today. I had some errands to run for the conference and decided on Qdoba.

I got a small naked taco salad with chicken and the Mexican Gumbo. SO SO Good! I always skip the tortilla chips and rice, double up on the beans and go light on the cheese. I swear they think I’m nuts when I got there. I come across as the picky "Sally" type.

In the afternoon I enjoyed an orange while watching the cat in envy…

Does any creature have it better on earth then a house cat? I mean seriously. Look at her?

For dinner I whipped up some chicken and orzo pasta. I totally forgot to take a pictures until it was too late…

After dinner it was karate time for Little Guy. I strapped on the baby and we walked. It’s just over 1/2 mile one way.

Little Guy loves it. We talk and sing and march. People passing us on the road probably think we’re nuts but whatever. It’s fun. :)

On the way home we stopped for a treat…

Kid size, of course. ;)

Now I’m snacking on some popcorn.

Just a quick homemade 100 calorie pack. Click here to see how I do it.

Once this goes live I’ll be hitting the hay. I’m hoping to get more than a 3 hour stretch in tonight. Little Bean does great going back down in the middle of the night but he’s still up every 2 to 2 and 1/2 hours to eat. It KILLING ME!

Ok, I’m out. :)

    Little bean is adorable! I want to remember that Qdoba order.

    Cats… we have 4 but none of ours do a spread quite like that.

    Qdoba is a new find of mine and I like their naked options. Funny thing is the guy that works at the one near here, each time when I say “I want it naked”, he cringes just a bit. Not sure why.

    Sweat dreams!

    I love qdoba. I’m glad to know someone else is picky when they order. If you don’t ask them to go light on the cheese they just put on way more than needed.

    Little bean is changing so much! I love how you are walking everywhere to get in those extra steps.

    I hope little beans soon starts to sleep longer stretches. Sleep deprivation is the worse part of having a newborn.

    I am a pretty picky person when I order food when eating out. Hey, I like to have it made my way and I figure that people who have food allergies have to do that and my health is just as important so why not.

    I no longer feel guilty about being picky, it’s all about feeling like I am worthy and it’s okay to make my health a priority!

    I never knew you could do the popcorn in the brown bag until a few weeks ago when you posted it. I will only ever do it this way now. My boys enjoy it also and we eat it with nothing on it…so good and thanks for the idea.

    Hey Roni,
    Just read your poop blow-out story on babble. Happened to me a few times (my son is 2 weeks older than yours!)…I just changed from Pampers to Huggies – the bit more expensive Huggies – and it has made a world of difference!

    OMG….I thought our cat Neva was the only crazy cat that slept like a pretzel on her back with all legs in the air. (front paw is often straight up like a tent pole) You’re right Roni, house cats DO have it made. LOVE LOVE the photo of little Bean, he’s adorable!!!! Have a great day, hope you have better nights sleep VERY soon!!!!
