One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Survivor Wednesday

11 Comments 2685 views

Every Wednesday night we let the 9-Year-Old stay up and watch Survivor with us. It’s been a tradition for the past few years and I really look forward to it. It’s the first and only weekly show we watch together and it’s so fun to analyze the game with him. Does anyone else watch? I feel like we are the only ones. We didn’t watch the first few years and now we absolutely love it.

Anyway, I’m just popping in to share my food journal. I’ve been loving the accountability.

  • 5:45 a.m.  Smeared some peanut butter on multigrain crackers and ate on my way to the gym
  • 7:00 a.m. Post-workout protein shake – Nature’s Bounty Protein made with 1% milk
  • 8:30 a.m. Made a hash out of leftover sweet potatoes, bacon bits and 2 eggs, drizzled with sriracha. Breakfast with the 3-Year-Old, who had French toast :)
  • Noon Leftover Turkey Pot Pie I made on Monday. Officially the last Thanksgiving plate. :(
  • 2 p.m. Acorn Squash Rings. SO stinkin’ good — click here to see a photo on Instagram. I forgot them in the oven and they got all crunchy. Will definitely make again and post a how-to!
  • 4 p.m. A few nuts with the 9-Year-Old when we came home from school. I bought mixed nuts in shells and have them out on the island.
  • 6:30 p.m. Pulled Pork Spinach Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash, Seeds and a Simple Maple Spiced Drizzle.
  • 8:30 p.m. Cocoa Dusted Banana Bites with a little added PB2

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.

    Those acorn squash rings look amazing!!! Must try! I love, love, love banana dipped in PB2. I read about it here in the comments and I am obsessed!

      It’s SO good! I love it combined dark cocoa powder.

    My 7 year old and I love watching The Amazing Race together! It’s great to hear his take on the episodes. Funny, when I watch that show I always think you would rock at those challenges…

      It is so fun to hear their take! I actually thought about applying to the Amazing Race with a friend. Maybe… one day. :)

    My oldest daughter and I used to always watch Survivor together. She is away in her first year of college and I didn’t even know it was on right now. Enjoy those evening with your son – they go by so quickly!!

      Noted. I’m trying my hardest to soak it in!

    I watched almost religiously until a couple of years ago…Redemption Island and now the family gimmicks turned me off. I really recommend going back if it’s available, and watching the first few cycles (original season, Outback, Africa, Amazon) Those were some GOOD seasons of Survivor. Contestants were still figuring out the game, and they didn’t get so much food/water provided to them. And the emphasis wasn’t quite so much on getting pretty young people as contestants, more quirky personalities. And fewer puzzle challenges! (which to me seem lazy production, not that fun to watch)

      I watched here and there back then but not weekly like I do now. It does seem the game play from the people hasn’t gotten more intense and the game play from the producers less so. I never thought about going back! That’s a good idea!

    We watch The Amazing Race, Survivor, and Once Upon A Time together, but I think Amazing Race is our favorite. It’s on my bucket list to apply! We held out on Survivor until this year because I think it can have a little moral ambiguity, but the kids seem to be doing o.k. with it.

    My husband and I have watched Survivor FOREVER — since season two, technically. (Somehow we missed season one, except for the finale!) It’s one of the few shows we always make time to watch together. We wouldn’t miss it!

    we have let our four kiddos watch this show for years!! It is a major highlight for us too:) I too feel like no one else is into it anymore. Amazing Race is another good for us and the kids. LOVE them both!!
