One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

Feeling blah tonight even though I had a great day.  I hate that.

So I looked online for something to make me smile and this did it…


Now I’m going to bed before I eat something just to eat it.

Food Journal

  • 5:45 a.m. orange on the way to the gym

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.

    I have been thinking of eating greens for breakfast & I see you had it for breakfast today. I just wasn’t sure if I would like it, but bok choy is a good mild green. Did you prepare it in any special way. I look forward to you date bar recipe. Larabar ALT bars are getting expensive & it would be great to make my own.

      This was the first time I used the bok choy in eggs and I really liked it. I just cut the bacon into pieces and let it cook down. Then I added the sweet potatoes cut into small pieces and the bok toy chopped and cooked everything together until the bacon was crispy and the potatoes soft. Then I drained it on a paper towel to reduce the grease, added the eggs to the pan, poured back in the bacon, potatoes and bok choy and scrambled. It’s really good!

    So true! (the dog thing) Who’s a good boy? HA! Thanks for the chuckle.

    Spinach eggs are pretty much the only way I get my greens. Plus it looks great on a plate, all that color. :)
