One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


I Tried…

…but I just could NOT get us all in the shot and looking at the same time.

Those are some of the only photos I took today. I decided to leave the camera at home and take a break. It’s exhausting being the family photographer. I much rather swim in the ocean and nap on the beach which is exactly what I did!

I also rocked rocked the food journal. My goal of balancing healthy food choices with vacation indulgences is in full swing!

Right now I’m fighting some cravings for cupcakes my mom brought but now that I posted, the kitchen is closed. :)

What Why
2 egg omelet with 1 slice of bacon, onion and zucchini Trying hard to start my day right even on vacation.
Laughing cow smeared on cucumber slices with turkey pepperoni Morning snack before the beach. The boys had crackers I’m staying away. Starting to like the cucumber "cracker" even better anyway.
1 slice of broccoli Pizza It’s one of those giant slices but I split it with the baby.
Goldfish Our official beach snack
1/2 Portabello sandwich and fries Leftovers from dinner last night – Saved calories and money!
Frozen grapes After dinner dessert at the house
Kid sized Italian Ice Split it with Little Bean
Strawberries Evening snack after we put the kids to bed.
1 hour morning walk with Little Bean in the stroller
Never as good as it can be at the beach but I also don’t want to be running to the bathroom all the time.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

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.

    Well, I’m just hoping that Americans call a fun, cracker-like snack “goldfish”, and that you did not eat a real goldfish for a snack…

    Cucumber cracker! Now why didn’t I ever think of that? I love when I read simple little ideas like this on people’s blogs! Thanks for the tip. :) And hope you continue to enjoy the beach.

    Are you going for walks/runs on the beach? That’s one of my favorite things about being at the beach. Hope you’re all having a blast!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE FROZEN GRAPES :) I’m glad someone else does too!

    I am a cracker addict. How you could only eat a single serving of goldfish is amazing!!!
