One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Short Sensational Sunday

No time tonight guys. I’ve been fiddling with my new phone (I got the Galaxy s3) all night trying to figure out how to synch photos which brought me down a path of organizing files and fiddling with settings.

Between that and a few admin things with my sites, I’ve a bit backlogged on the tech side of blogging. I’ve decided it’s time to clean things up and refocus my attention on BlogToLose. I really let it fall to the bottom of the to do while conference planning.

I’m also backlogged on writing for GreenLiteBites and TheUnworldlyTravelers, hoping to knock two posts off during nap time tomorrow.

Today was pretty chill. I didn’t do much of anything except take Ryan to a movie and cook dinner, but I’m totally ready to start this week!

I rocked the Unprocessed Challenge today. At least within my definition of unprocessed. I tell you what, regardless of how well I’m doing it sure has me thinking outside the box and realizing how many things are really “processed” in my pantry.

I didn’t take a photo of everything but here’s the food journal for the day…

Breakfast was a spinach and bacon bit omelet.

Lunch was a little weird but tasty!

That’s some fresh cabbage I sautéed up with leftover turkey, kale and black bean taco meat. The taco filling is one of the recipes I have to write up for GreenLiteBites. I made it Friday and got ALL 3 boys to eat super healthy tacos!

Unprocessed snack choice… Chashews!

I shared some with Little Bean while playing. He really likes all nuts. It’s nice.

In the afternoon I took Ryan to see Hotel Transylvania –we both enjoyed it by the way– and had some popcorn and unsweetend tea. That’s my go to movie snack.

Dinner was a variation of Chicken Tips over mashed potatoes (TOTALLY forgot to take a pic) and some fresh roasted broccoli. You can see my original recipe here but tonight I modified it to be less processed by skipping the soup and using a gravy I thickened with whole wheat flour. Everyone loved it! I may have to post an unprocessed update to that one.

A few minutes ago I had some frozen grapes. I’m trying to avoid the evening snack but my stomach was growling so I decided to choose smart. My stratgegy of using fruit to see if you’re REALLY hungry worked. I was pondering what to eat and nothing sounded more satisfying then some sweet frozen grapes. This definitely wasn’t a mindless munch.

Ok, I’m off to bed. I made a to do list for myself and my goal for tomorrow is unprocessed and productive. :)

Hope you had a great 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.

    So why the Galaxy 3 and not iPhone 5? Just curious.

      Mostly because I already had a droid and I’m not ready to make the switch, Plus I’m impatient and didn’t want to wait. ;)

    I got the same phone about a month ago and I LOVE it! But my old phone was 4 years old and there was nothing “smart” about it so this is a huge improvement.

    It’s always a learning curve when we get a new high tech device! The no processed food challenged sounds like a great idea. It really gets you thinking about what you put in your body.
