One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


What I Eat on Wednesdays is Pretty Ugly

Every day I’m getting closer to finding my new groove. I’ve come to the conclusion that I thrive on order even though I don’t like to admit it.  Walking into a management position where things are quite out of order has been stressful, but the more order I put in place the calmer and more at ease I feel.

I still have a lot to do but I’m enjoying the challenge and, in a way, the distraction.

Anyway, since it’s Wednesday I thought I’d do a “What I Ate Wednesday” post so I started snapping photos of my dishes until I forgot. I have a habit of doing that.

My diet was also really odd today because I’m in leftover mode, and The Husband and I are really trying to eat more at home.

5 a.m. 

1/2 banana on the way to the gym — lately I’ve been hungry in the mornings so I’m grabbing at least a banana to eat in the car on the way there.

7:30 a.m. 

1/2 roasted acorn squash with bacon sautéed with leftover taco meat and baby kale drizzled with a little sriracha.

I remembered to snap a photo about half way through — there was more on this plate when I started.


I know it’s not the prettiest dish but I wanted to share because, well, it’s what I ate!

Last night I roasted the squash just so I’d have it on hand for quick meals and my plan worked great! It was perfect simply warmed in a skillet.

10 a.m. 

Pistachios at the gym — I learned the hard way I need to bring at least one snack. My stomach is usually growling by 10 a.m.

12:45 p.m. 

Leftover Simple Two-Tablespoon, Two-Bean, Turkey Chili With Pumpkin, leftover collard greens, and Scoops.


Another ugly dish but it is what I ate. I can’t help it.

2:30 p.m. 

Greek yogurt with cocoa nibs, hemp hearts, sunflower seeds and maple syrup — I was hungry and I knew I wouldn’t make it until dinner. Totally forgot to take a photo but you can see one here.

6:30 p.m. 

Grill fest!

I marinated pork chops in the most amazing marinade. The whole family loved it! And this time I measured everything so I will be sharing on GreenLitesBites ASAP, hopefully tomorrow.

That’s it from me tonight. I’m working on a fun review post tomorrow. Stay tuned!

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.

    Congrats on your new venture! I also recently took over a management job and inherited a train wreck. At least there is nowhere to go but up!
    BTW I read your lasts 2 posts on my phone and there was literally more ads on my phone screen than content. But on my desktop there are hardly any ads? FYI.
