One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Sensational Saturday/Relaxing Sunday

7 Comments 1426 views

It is midday Sunday and I am having the best weekend ever. Yesterday was JAM packed with active fun!

First, I got my butt kicked at bootcamp. I have really missed my Saturday morning date at the gym. Love that I’m getting back into the routine.

When I got back, I made breakfast for everyone while the boys (all of them!) played Ninjago.

That shot cracks me up as the husband cheered too loud, scaring the baby and making him jump. But it looks like Little Bean was cheering right along with them.

While this was going on, the cat reveled on “her deck.”

She cracks me up.

I made everyone eggs and also cut some fresh veggies up for dinner. I had a craving for marinated vegetable skewers.

After breakfast we hung out a bit, showered, and got ready to head to the park. Little Guy got a bike for his birthday and there’s a great paved trail not too far away.

He rode and we walked about a mile until we hit the creek.

Little Bean snoozed peacefully in the carriage.

After a little while we headed back. Notice "Dad" is not holding the bike in the picture as he was in the first. We were working on Little Guy’s confidence. He fell a few weeks ago and has been a bit timid on the bike ever since.

It worked!

When we got back, we relaxed until dinner.

I grilled some burgers and the veggies. It was nice.

Once the kids went to bed I totally crashed. It was time to catch up on some sleep.

WOW was that ever the right decision! Little Bean slept until 6:30 giving me 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. First time in MONTHS!

I woke up refreshed and relaxed and ready to enjoy today doing NOTHING.

That’s right, nothing.

No plans. No outings. No expectations.

Just lounging around the house with the boys. So far so good. We are watching Despicable Me. :)

I do have a 4 mile run scheduled for training which I take tonight after dinner. I’m getting into the evening run groove again.

I’m also taking a break from my food journal–NOT from eating healthy just from recording it. I wanted no pressure over the holiday weekend. I’ll be back Tuesday with it.

OH! and I also recorded a podcast. It should be up tomorrow.

In other news…

I hope you are enjoying the weekend! Anyone have crazy plans tomorrow?

I’ll be grilling and being goofy like this guy…

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.

    We have had a weekend with ZERO plans & I am bored out of my mind!! Maybe its b/c I was soooooo incredibly busy this past week, I don’t know what to do. ;)

    Enjoy your weekend!!!

    LOVE all the pics! I can’t help but wonder how many more cool pics I would have taken if digital cameras were around when my kiddos were little! I love all the moments that you’ve captured. Looks like you’re enjoying your family so much!
    I still enjoy all of your posts!! ;)
    Oh and the one w/ baby’s feet showing (in the carriage) <3

    Glad you are having a relaxing weekend. We had people over for a BBQ that was moved inside due to rain. Tomorrow I am babysitting my 5 m/o niece and I am psyched we will be hanging with the DH and my 2 boys doing nothing!
