One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


A School-Starts-Tomorrow Sensational Sunday

This is pretty representative of how the last week has been living with my 2-year-old.


He’s either an absolute joy to be around or 30 lbs of walking, whining, annoying-ness.

Dad was able to solve all his problems with a game of throw the ball in the basket.


Then he came upstairs with me and we started to straighten up


All of us spent the entire morning organizing the soon to be-3rd-graders wardrobe.


I have one kid climbing the elementary school ladder and the other graduating to a toddler bed.


Irish seems completely unaffected by it all …


but I’m feeling old!

After our chore-filled morning, I made us a big brunch of eggs and bacon.


Then it was nap time for some.


And snack time for others.


Vitalicious send me samples of their newest flavor, Wild Blueberry.

I put it in the toaster, looked over to check on the 8-year-old who was supposed to be folding his laundry and saw this.


He was “tired” and moping about school starting tomorrow.

Anyway, I had my VitaTop and can I just say I’m SO happy Vitalicious came out with a new blueberry flavor.


I’ve never been the biggest fan of their BlueBran. The new Wild Blueberry is much better. It went great with a cup of tea. If you are interested in trying them don’t forget about my discount code RONISWEIGH. It will give you 10% any order at

The rest of the afternoon we spent at the mall school shopping and having dinner.


We got home with just enough time to make lunches and take baths.


Overall, a pretty uneventful day. I didn’t even get a run in or anything. Actually, I haven’t run in weeks and I’ve been pondering a new run streak to re-motivate me. I’ll let you know if I decide to do it tomorrow. Right now I’m wrapped up in Season 3 of Breaking Bad. The Husband and I are obsessed. It’s been seriously cutting into my goal of going to bed earlier.

I did, however, keep my food journal today and actually remembered t0 wear the Fitbit today. :)

Hope you had a great weekend!

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

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.

    Good luck on getting your run streak going again! I finished out at 100 days of running on Friday…with a calf injury….and a Half Marathon quickly approaching this coming Sunday. YIKES! R.I.C.E is becoming my best friend this week! Good luck on your son’s first day of school….my youngest started her first day of high school today! Bittersweet! :)

    You’ve mentioned a few times lately that you feel old. Stop that silly nonsense! As someone who didn’t even start running till her kids were teenagers, I can tell you your best years are still ahead. It’s so fun when your kids get old enough to catch you up on what’s going on in pop culture. It’s like getting to live it all over again!
