Chipping Away

Posted by 1 day ago 1 Comments 128 views

That’s my strategy. I just keep chipping away, doing what I can when I can and it’s keeping me sane. This morning I published the #wycwyc podcast and Carla and I recorded next week’s. Yesterday I posted a new smoothie idea with a video on GreenLiteBites. The rest of the day was spent on the phone either […]

“Because My Thighs Jiggle”

Posted by 2 days ago 9 Comments 312 views

I’ve been feeling defeated lately. Promotion of the book is relentless and exhausting. FitBloggin‘ planning is more challenging than ever with brands wanting everything for free, speakers backing out and tickets not selling as easily as they have in the past. Truth be told, I feel disconnected from it and that feeling is oozing into everything. […]

Posted by 3 days ago 1 Comments 283 views

If you’ve received an error visiting here, GreenLiteBites or FitBloggin‘ the past few days it was probably a result of a DoS (Denial of Service) attack that’s been happening. Thankfully, I have a server admin on retainer to help me deal with these types of issues as I don’t have the skill set or experience […]

Another kick a$$ weekend! I’m really getting into a groove of disconnecting Friday night to seize the weekend with friends and family and I love it. This Friday The Husband took Ryan to his soccer game while I spent time with Evan. We went for frozen yogurt and then stopped by my gym for a […]

5 Health and Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

Posted by 1 week ago 1 Comments 481 views

Not going to lie, that title was total linkbait. Mostly because I didn’t know how else to title this post. Truth be told, I can live without them, I just don’t want to. And really what is “health and beauty” — is that even a category of products? It was the only thing I could come up […]

Ask Roni: Does Dieting Work?

Posted by 1 week ago 11 Comments 446 views

Hi Roni! I have a quick question. Do you think that if you haven’t followed WW so strictly in the beginning you would be where you are today? You keep saying that diets don’t work, but how did you lose the 70 pounds? By dieting, right? I think that all diets work as long as […]

What Would Your Future Self Do?

Posted by 1 week ago 5 Comments 411 views

I’m feeling so much better today than yesterday. After a long, busy, non-stop day I opened the mail to find a letter from the IRS that my tax returns weren’t filed properly.  The error was in my favor but it didn’t matter. This is the second big mess up my accounting firm made this year […]

A Top 10 Finish and a Fabulous Mother’s Day!

Posted by 2 weeks ago 6 Comments 436 views

I had an AMAZING Mother’s Day weekend! It all kicked off Friday night with a low-key evening hanging out with the family watching Shark Tank. It’s becoming a family tradition like Survivor. I can’t explain it but I love hanging out with the kids as they get older. Parenting infants and toddlers is one thing. […]

Mother’s Day is Coming!

Posted by 2 weeks ago 6 Comments 476 views

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I don’t usually hop on unrelated sponsored post opportunities but when Groupon reached out and asked if I would showcase their Groupon’s Mother’s Day Gift Shop I thought, why not? Especially because, and this may seem silly, I have some really strong gift […]
