One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


It’s Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

The day started slow and low key. Little Guy stayed the night at a friend’s house so laundry sorting was quite boring.

No laundry bombs. :(

But SOMEONE soon woke up to keep me company. :)

We headed downstairs for some breakfast and I made a little bowl of heaven…

After breakfast we cleaned up…


and sorted Bean’s hand me downs….

He’s getting so big I had to pluck out all the too small stuff and add in some bigger items from the hand me down box in the closet.

Nap time for Bean meant blogging time for Mom. I posted real quick on Poop Butterflies. Tomorrow marks a special week and I wanted to spread the word. Click here for the details.

Around noon I left to pick up Little Guy and we stopped on the way to home to take mug shots…

err, I mean Passport photos. I want to start to take the family more places besides "the shore" and it seems a passport is a must, but what a pain in the patootie!

When we got home I made lunch for the boys…

They are BOTH eating grilled cheese. Can you believe it?

I had a new tuna burger I made. I’ll share the recipe on GreenLiteBites this week!

After lunch a short run with a friend…

I have some fun race/event news but I’m holding off a bit until I see the doctor on Wednesday. I’m feeling MUCH better but I want to get her opinion before I commit fully.

When I got back we had a a little snack.

For those that have been with me awhile here online you know how much that photo makes me smile. Click here for a blast from our mango past.

I also made his lunch for tomorrow while I had the chance. I knew we were going to have a busy night.

We had a little fun doing a scavenger hunt in our giant family fun pad.

I’d share a link as this was one of our favorite Christmas gifts this year but I can’t find it online anywhere! I think my friend got it at Sam’s Club. It’s a HUGE picture find book. Little Guy loves it!

Then we headed out for a night soccer game but first, dinner…

We stopped at Panera. I got the black bean soup and the salmon salad with a side of whole grain baguette. I have a panera rule that works for me. I always get a "You Pick 2" If I get a sandwich with the soup (cause I ALWAYS get soup–love it!) I get an apple on the side. If I go with a salad then I get bread on the side. I mean how can you go to panera and not get bread somehow?!
Oh! and I ALWAYS get dressing on the side.

I always feel good after a Panera meal, satisfied and not weighed down.

Anyway, then it was off to the game…

They got slaughtered again but Little Guy did so good! He’s started to understand the game a bit.

On the way home we stopped for ice cream at McDs. I’m seriously obsessed with their cones lately.

When we got home I got a finger in motion when I mentioned the laundry wasn’t done.


He’s been making me laugh so hard and we’ve both been getting our digs in. Don’t tell him I told you this, but I smile just thinking about him anymore. I think Valentine’s day this week is making me more mushy then I already am. :)

Before bed we got a little more play time in…

I’m ending with this photo. One of two that inspired this post on Baby’s First year.

I can’t be live how fast this past year has flown by.

ok, must go to bed. I hope you had a fabulous weekend!

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.

    Did you like that Salmon salad? My mom and I thought the salmon was gross!


    February 13, 2012

    You know, now that you mention it, by far my LEAST fav salad there. It was pretty dry and over all the salad was boring. I wouldn’t get it again.

    Because I am soooo hungry all I could retain was the chocolate chip oatmeal (I think that’s what it is, I didn’t click the link, just wiped drool off the keyboard) and grilled cheese.

    Love the bird in motion!

    The boys are so cute! What kind of toys are they playing with in the last photo? I think my little nephew would love those!

    I don’t know how to reply to my original comment, so I will just post another one. I normally don’t complain about food. But for almost $10, it was not worth it. And I usually love Panera!

    Hi Roni,

    I just watched this clip of Adele on 60 minutes talking about body image and thought you might be interested in it:;contentAux. What she says reminds me a lot of what you say on your blog!

    Great day Roni!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I am training for a half marathon and had to run 8 miles, but it was so cold Saturday (10 degrees!) I only had to run 60 minutes. Phew!

    And I did tons of laundry too… not my favorite thing! Although my daughter who is 10 loves doing it – so when I have a few baskets full I say “do you want to have a folding clothes party?” and she is ALWAYS up for that.

    I can’t believe your little guy is 1 already!

    Katy – SO BLOGGING ABOUT THIS! Thanks!

    Katy – It’s up! Thanks again!

    Roni, Can you tell me the name of those toys your boys are playing with? I remember you saying the name in a past post, but I can’t find it now! My nephew would love those, and his birthday is coming up. Thanks! I love reading your websites. :0)

    Jill – They are called Bristle Blocks or Stackadoos.

    SO FUN! I love them as much as they do. Here’s the link on Amazon…
