One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

FOOD JOURNALS

Confession Observation

9 Comments 1244 views

I’m going to share my food journal but first I have something I want to try to explain. I’m just not sure if it’s going to come out right.

Today rocked. Plain and simple. I spent time with the kids, got work done, had lunch with the husband, made a great dinner and hit the gym.My house is even slightly clean! Not once did I think about my body or the scale. I wasn’t preoccupied with food. I didn’t look at myself in the mirror with a tinge of doubt. I simple went through my day confidently, productively, happily.

Then it hit me.

My confession yesterday.

Getting all that out of my head is a huge part of "the solution." It’s why THIS, as in the blog, works for me. Nothing good happens when you’re stuck in your own head with negative thoughts, fat talk or an inner mean girl. At least for me, that’s when I start to feel out of control and turn to food as a form of therapy.

Like I said, not sure if this is coming out right. All I know is a weight was lifted from my shoulders today and I can’t help but think it’s because I faced the feelings I was having instead of stuffing them down even deeper with food.

Anyway, just an observation. On to today in food!

Breakfast was this amazing omelet…

Garden Veggetable Omelet.

Lunch was sushi with The Husband. Yep you heard that right. I’ve converted him!

You have NO idea what a stretch this is and how happy it makes me! Let’s just say he could easily sustain himself happily on mac & cheese, burgers, and potato chips. Like I said, this is HUGE!

Dinner was AMAZING! I made a new homemade turkey burger, roasted some veggies, heated up some corn and paired it all with a fresh salad.

I’ll share the recipe on GreenLiteBites this weekend. All 3 boys ate the burger with no complaints! Wow. I’m still in shock!

While writing this I munched on some frozen grapes but since I already used a frozen grape photo this week I’ll share this one instead.

That’s what she was doing while we ate outside. Doesn’t it just make you smile? :)

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.

    Now THAT looks like a great day! Sushi eh? Still not on the bandwagon but good for him for giving in! HA! The cat reminds me of that treat commercial or something where he’s talking all sexy to the pile of newly cleaned clothes…”Keeeetty LIKES that…rawr!” Somehow I picture your cat saying that whilst rolling on the grass.

    I should probably go to bed.

    I seriously love Irish! And good for you, allowing yourself to let go of negative feelings by expressing them. I tried the blog thing, but it didn’t really work for me. I still need to find my outlet, but the good news is that this blog continues to inspire me to try! Thanks for sharing your life.

    You post makes PERFECT sense in SO many ways! Thanks for sharing with us. I particularly like your comment about getting the thoughts out of your head… my mom, sister and I started a challenge this month (and a separate one with a friend) and maybe that’s why I’m feeling free-er; we’ve been checking in and sharing the ups and downs.

    Have a great weekend!

    Do you have recipe for frozen grapes or is it just plain grapes put in freezer? I would like to try them.

    I just pull them off the vine, put in a baggy and place in the freezer for easy snacking!
