One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Simple Lunge Circuit

Happy Monday!

I’m popping in real quick to share a workout idea and my food journal.

I haven’t been very vocal about my Tough Mudder (2) training but I’ve been trucking away. This past week my friend, the trainer, came up with simple yet effective move…

He loves that “Curtsy” lunge. Not sure if you can hear me but I told him not to make me laugh because I WILL lose my balance. I have lost my balance. lol

Anyway, I finally updated my training table. In 3 short weeks I’ll be jumping in another dumpster full of ice and climbing walls. I’m kind of looking forward to it. This time I will beat those darn monkey bars!

oh! Speaking of, I bought these cute grip gloves for the course. I had a generic pair on the last run and they were too big. No slipping out this time!

On to today’s food journal. It was a weird, pick as you go, type of day and tomorrow will be a challenge too. I’m taking both boys to DC for a good bye summer day trip. It will just be me and them so I’m a little worried. We’re going to drive to a metro station and bring the carriage on the train. Besides a trip to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, we’ll just be bumming about the city. It should be fun, er, I’m hoping it will be fun! I could end up with grumpy 1 year old and a uninterested 7 year old but I have high hopes! Wish me luck!

Oh! and I posted the Yonanaz review on GreenLiteBites!

What Why
egg white omelet with leftover ham and asparagus This was a nice change from my normal spinach and peppers.
Leftover Pepper and Corn Soup with Fresh Cilantro topped with avocado So filling for a soup!
Banana Berry Soft Serve We did our yonanas video today – click here to check it out!
turkey jerky + 2 graham crackers + a cheese stick random snacks, kind of a long story, it was a weird afternoon
Store bought chicken nuggets + butternut squash fries Quick dinner. I had no energy left in my to do anything else
watermelon dessert with the kids!
Pirate booty WHY did I pick up the bag. Ugh. Total mindless munch!
30 minute walk with the baby
Much better! I have a new trick up my sleeve. I keep a canister of sun tea on the counter and have been drinking it all day over big glasses of ice.

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.

    Perfect weather for DC today!! Have a great day!! I am sure the boys will love it:)

    I wondered if you were training for that. I hate curtsy lunges (aren’t they the same as bowlers lunges?) Hate meaning dang they get your booty good!

    why can’t I do a lunge without serious pain in my knees? what am I doing wrong?


    August 21, 2012

    I’m not a trainer but I think it normally because of muscle imbalance. I used to feel a little pain but as I’ve strengthened overall it’s gone away.

    I do think they are the same, bowlers and curtsy lunges. I don’t mind them as much as I used to!

    Nice job Roni! I most certainly not that coordinated!

    These themed runs are so much fun. It’s a great way to get exercise too. Running straight for many miles can be boring and doesn’t appeal to many people. If you get a group of friends together these runs can be a blast.
