One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Residual Challenge Effect

3 Comments 1270 views

Totally forgetting to defrost something for dinner, I was *this* close to taking the family out.  THIS CLOSE!

Instead I thought about last week’s challenge, pulled out some leftovers, grilled some hot dogs, warmed some beans and prepared some frozen broccoli.


Besides my last-minute dinner, I ditched car and took a walk in honor of National Walking Day.

The American Heart Association sent me those shnazzy laces. :)

What Why
Chocolate Mini Wheats with a little banana and almond milk Quick sit-down breakfast with the kids before heading to the gym
Strawberry shortcake-inspired smoothie with cashews, almond milk, lemon extract, a touch of honey and frozen strawberries Post-gym quick breakfast. I didn’t feel like cooking anything so I whipped this up. Click here for a photo, I’ll be sharing the recipe on GreenLiteBites asap.
Chicken with red curry and rice Business lunch at Thai place
Big Bowl of Turkey Taco Soup, roasted broccoli, baked beans My thrown together dinner
Blueberry VitaTop and cup of chamomile tea Felt like dessert.

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.

    Luckily my husband is home during the day, so there have been many times that I call him at 11:00 and say “can you take out the chicken breasts!” I don’t like defrosting meat in the microwave for some reason. :D

      Me either!! I’m a counter girl, I’ll admit it. I pull out what i want, defrost it on the counter and it’s perfect by dinner. Works for me.

    Fortunately for last night, we’d pulled something out the night before!
