Dancing the Funk Away

17 Comments 1989 views

That’s how I fought the funk today. It was all about the boys. :)

We danced. We had lunch with friends. Read Books. Walked to the park.

We just… were.

I needed this. :)

Oh and when you need a pick me up… let the 6 year old choose the music. May I present “Ryan’s Awesome Mix” :)

Food Notes
The Leftover BBQ Salad Strange breakfast, I know, but I’ve been wanting to make this salad for days!
Seared Tuna Appetizer with cucumber salad and 2 mozzarella sticks Out to lunch. Didn’t NEED that extra mozzarella stick but it was just sitting there looking so tasty.
Lite yogurt cup over strawberries One of my favorite summertime treats!
The last of the leftover Chickpea and Tomato Salad with Fresh Basil plus some quick sugar snap peas and leftover potatoes This is the last meal I can squeeze out of leftovers this week. :)
Activity
Walk to the park.
Water/Vitamins
Not as much water as yesterday but did good. About to have my vitamins now.

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.

    Have you always liked beans and the like(read: chickpeas)? I HATED sweet potatoes. Made the fries, love them, but still will not eat them any other way. Black beans, love to hate them. I still to this day though, can’t just take a spoon fool and go to town. Yuck. My real question being I guess, is it an acquired taste/texture? Does this even make sense?! :/

    Awesome playlist too! Ryan and my three year old could really do some damage!

    And talk about a grammar fail. Full. Fool. Basically retweeting my own tweet in your comments: It has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. #ithinkillmovetoaustralia

    I think most things are an acquired taste but there are some textures you may never like. And beans have a very distinctive texture. A few foods I hated and now love… cooked onions, mushrooms, cabbage. But beans.. I always liked, although I like them even more now for some reason. :)

    I’ve got no picture or video :( Is it my computer? I ususally don’t have a problem. I might have snagged that lonely mozzarella stick also!

    Spending time simply focusing on the kids has to be THE BEST way to fight a funk. Mine still love to dance in the kitchen at 11,9, and 5yrs old! What a fun clip.

    Love the video!! It is adorable!! I love cranking up the music and dancing away while cleaning! I bet having little kids around makes it even more fun!

    LOVE it! Enjoy these times!

    Hmmm the video is on youtube. Is it blocked where you are?

    As for snacking.. that’s because yesterday we were on the run. I’m still finding a “dieting” groove. Being home with both kids I find I don’t have as much time to eat!

    I guess hell just froze. Because I remembered asking you like 2 years ago if you’ll ever post a vid of you dancing with your kid (kids, now) and that’s when you said it would happen :)

    That’s my favorite, just hanging with the family doing simple things. I find when the world gets too busy, too stressful, too overwhelming, hanging with my small sons and just going with the flow is the BEST! Puts it all back into perspective….
