One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


YAY for Extra Hours!

15 Comments 2022 views

LOVED the extra hour today, but now I’m REALLY exhausted. Here’s my Sensational Sunday real quick.

A quick breakfast before my race…

I registered for a local 5k. It was at a park about a mile away. My plan was to run there, run and then run home. YES I know I’m crazy. Sometimes I STILL don’t know who I am.

I ROCKED the race. By far my best time in over a year.

The official results: 28:46 that’s a 9:17 average mile! My jaw almost hit the ground!

I got back just in time for Candy Land.

After getting smoked by a 6 year old, I headed to the kitchen and perfected the Red Pepper Soup.

It is DELICIOUS! I’ll do my best to post the recipe on GreenLiteBites tomorrow. In the meantime check out my latest grilled sandwich idea which will go GREAT on the side! UPDATE: The recipe for Red Pepper Soup with Roasted Spaghetti Squash has been posted. Click here!

Anyway, the boys then played while I forged ahead with the laundry.

Someone is AWFULLY close to crawling! Can you see it? Click here for a better pic.

The Husband said, and I quote, "You keep the laundry going, I’ll fold it."

Ummmm yeah. lol

Instead of folding (cause there’s no way I was doing that) I made a snack. Frozen blueberries with a cup of Blueberry Greek Yogurt.

Irish didn’t know what to make of it.

Little guy and I set up his car track. (side note: This makes a great chrsitmas gift! It’s called… Mindscope Tracks

We love shutting off the lights and letting it run.

It was so beautiful outside, there was no way we were staying in the house all day. I decided to take the boys on a hike while Dad got some work done.

Both Little Guy and I brought our camera. The next few shots are from him….

And a couple from me….

We came home, had a snack, and

cleaned up.

Well, one room at least.

Soon it was dinner time and even though I had something planned I was outvoted. We ended up going out with friends.

The pictures of my dinner didn’t come out, but this one HAD to be shared. ;)

We came home and finished cleaning.

and I now I’m ready 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.

    Great job on run time! And on making the choice to get out of the house for something active with the boys….so something I am loving now! And WHEREVER did you get that race track? You just solved my Christmas gift problem…I need a track like that!

    I always enjoy your Sunday posts. You guys are BUSY! WTG on the race!! I wish I could get my hubby to fold clothes….the most he does is carry the folded laundry upstairs. haha

    Great job on your 5K finishing time. I am registered to run one this Saturday. I have only ever run two races, my very first was a 5K a few years ago when I first started running, and last month when I ran my first half-marathon.

    I plan on running a few more 5K’s in the next month. LOVE running!

    Looks like little Bean is giving the bird too, with his right hand ha ha ha :) Thank You for sharing your Sundays with us!

    That “bird” picture is freakin’ hilarious, looks like Evan is giving the bird too – that is one to laugh at when he gets older – hilarious! … I am always so envious of your Sensational Sundays – you guys do SO MUCH in one day, and fun stuff too! lol – I go to the grocery store and I feel like I’ve accomplished something =)

    That looks like one busy weekend! Look at little guy getting the angles in! Definitely a pro photographer in the making!

    Just found your blog…not even sure how. I am truly inspired! I, too have 70 lbs to lose (well, 61 to go ;).

    I’ve got a lot of reading to do, girl. lol


    November 7, 2011

    please write a post about how you get so much done in one day. I read your Sunday post every week and every week I’m amazed at how much you can fit into a day. I would love to know how you do it.


    November 7, 2011

    wow both of you took great pictures.
    and I love your kitchen, which I had one like it.
