Happy, Happy!

May 13, 2016

I’ve had a “Happy” theme going in my quotes at the end of my blog for a few days now. It’s been a really “Happy” week, so maybe I’m on to something here?


Yesterday, I got an interesting email that I assumed was Junk Mail. After further reading, I realized that it wasn’t Junk Mail at all, and that my “Happy” week had just become even Happier!

You guys, somebody (Diet-To-Go …a diet plan that delivers your food choices to your door) found my blog, read it, liked it, and found it worthy of….are you ready?

The Top 100 Inspirational Weight Loss Bloggers You’ve Probably Never Heard Of (Until Now)

The title cracks me up. I went to the website (You can too by clicking on the above link.) and checked things out, and sure enough, there I was! I even like the little paragraph about me!


Now I’m anxious to check out the other 99 Blogs!

They sent me this cute little badge to display on my blog, and I’m honored, so you’ll see it over there on your right from now on.


So, basically, I’m famous now.

Mike….”Do you think you’ll be able to handle the paparazzi?”

Me…”Yes, but I think I should be practicing my autograph, don’t you?”


I got my walk in yesterday. I think it’s time for new shoes!!


Here are yesterday’s eats…


Breakfast – 10 SP

Check out my Avocado! Yes, I’m overly excited about it, but isn’t it super cute?

Breakfast is thinly sliced Sweet Potatoes, sautéed until tender and seasoned with Cumin, Sea Salt and Chili Powder. I topped those with Scrambled Eggs and left over Taco Meat, then topped it with half of an Avocado. Yummmmm







Lunch – 8 SP

This is the lunch that I forgot to take to the Food Truck on Wednesday, but it came in handy yesterday.

Tuna/Egg Salad, Cucumbers and Carrots.



Dinner – 14 SP

Fall Chopped Salad. This salad never gets old. Love it!

    The big bucks would be nice! But I’ll keep doing what I’m doing because it really does keep me accountable and I love the interaction with my readers, just like you!

    You’re just the sweetest! Thanks Ronda!

  3. Congratulations! As I posted elsewhere that list is obviously not in numerical order because to me you’re number one! The majority of my favorite meals are your ideas, and even though I don’t always reply each and every day I look forward to your blog each and every day! Ronda

  4. I don’t know if Adie has people working for her but I know Skinny Mom has an office in Cincinnati for her team to work from. Think of how many people work for Ree Drummond.
    You are home grown and the real thing–the personal touch.
    I just wish you could make the big bucks off your blog like they do because you deserve it.
    Think of all the antiquing you could do.
    So many shops so little time—-lol.

    I’m going to try to check out more of the 99 today. It is kind of exciting, but I don’t feel worthy of being compared to the others, thats for sure.

    Thanks for your kind words and continued support Nancy. You’re the best!


  6. You are right after Adie Mitchell who just released her cookbook (she also has a memior It Was Me All Along.) You’re up two numbers from Skinny Mom who just released a cookbook.
    I think the title of the article should of been–Impressive Blogs You Might Of Missed!!
    See your quality shines through!
    Now more will benefit from your wisdom, humor, and caring.
