(you sang it.. go on.. admit it.)

I shared this quote on Facebook yesterday after seeing it on a friends page and I can’t believe how many people it resonated with.


I mean, really. Isn’t that the truth?

Anyway, I’m just popping in to share the weekend quote and my food journal. It’s been a long, crazy day and it’s only the tip of the iceberg! Tomorrow is the Pinewood Derby. Have you seen the 8-year-old’s car? He did amazing!

Afterwards I’m volunteering at the Baltimore Open. Then Mom is coming to get ready for our cruise.

Sunday I have to sneak in to see my friends competing in the open, then it’s off to the airport, and our big adventure! Craziness!!

Anyway, here’s the journal. I’ll be back on Sunday posting from Sunny Florida!

Oh! and we took the kids to see the Lego Movie tonight. So fun!! All four of us loved it!

What Why
Small bowl of mini wheats and almond milk Quick pre-workout breakfast with the kids – About 30  minutes before I workout.
Recovery Shake (almond milk, maple syrup, whey protein, cocoa powder) Post-workout drink I bring to the gym with me and drink while stretching
Quinoa Beet and Feta Salad Leftovers from yesterday. It was SO good! Click here for the recipe.
Leftover Tuna steak, Hot and Sour Soup, Spring Roll, 4 Shrimp Rolls My compromise for lunch because The Husband HAD to order out. So I hate a combo of leftovers and takeout
 2% Greek Yogurt topped with frozen wild blueberries, cocoa nibs and maple syrup  Afternoon snack once I got hungry
 Z-Burger with every possible Vegetable no cheese and fries split with the family  Dinner out before the movie
 Popcorn, a handful of sour patch kids, 1 twizzler and unsweetened iced tea  Movie snacks!

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.

    Have fun! I love your what and why! I think I must do that!! It would be great for me to think and write down why I am eating what i am eating!

    Very accurate quote…I try to catch myself when I am dreaming up negative scenarios because, really, what’s the point?

    And oh, I remember the pinewood derby days!

    I saw this quote floating on FB the other night and showed it to my husband. He said, “Did you write that one?” haha
    The Pinewood Derby car turned out great! WTG!

    I recently read a quote somewhere “worrying is like praying for what you don’t want.” It’s true! Definitely stopped me from stressing out about random stuff for a bit! It’s so pointless! Have fun on the cruise!
