One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Tag! You’re It.

4 Comments 2038 views

When was the last time you played tag? Just running around like a crazy person, egging on the “it” person, zig-zagging around the yard?

Tonight we played a family game of tag and it was a BLAST!

Beforehand Ryan and I went to the park. He wanted to workout because they canceled the gym class he normally goes to yesterday. I was in!

We planned our workout while we walked.

10 Air Squats
Sprint Back
5 Pushups

We did it three times and it was — I know this sounds crazy — so fun!  Afterwards we hung out on the playground and just talked. It was nice.

Then The Husband brought Evan and the tag game ensued.

We walked home and this happened spontaneously.

*happy sigh*

Overall I had a great, productive day. FitBloggin’ is creeping closer, I published a new podcast on #wycwyc and my inbox is actually manageable!

I’m off to watch Orange is the New Black!

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.

    It’s 12AM but that salad looks good.

    I have two sons, 6 &8, and when the little one spontaneously reaches for the big one’s hand- I melt! It reminds me of when they were tiny and I’d spy them holding hands in their car seats-especially in the car wash. I have to remember these times when I hear one holler about being kicked in the eye or the other screaming that his brother is so annoying… Taking the good with the bad. My little guy was crying about how much he will miss his brother when he leaves for college today. Did I mention they are 6&8? Gotta love being a mom of boys!

    I absolutely love the photo of your two boys!!! I have three. My youngest is 20 now, I remember the tag, and wrestling like it was yesterday. Enjoy every minute, like you do, it goes by so quickly. I know that sounds so cliche, but, it rings true in my life. Wrestle and cuddle whenever you can, one day, it changes and suddenly they are men. Your salad looks delish too!!
