One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


One the Run with a New Mix…

9 Comments 1229 views

I’m going to be quick tonight. As usual, I’m trying to do too many things at once after a very busy day. Let’s see…

  • I recorded a new video for GreenLiteBites, so that’s rendering. It’s a whole different style and should be up tomorrow morning.
  • I made a new recipe tonight, Ginger Garlic Chicken with Vegetables. The husband thought it was a winner!
  • I’m TRYING to catch up on BlogToLose community news. For those of you over there, WOW! What activity and support! The forums are hopping, groups are popping up and everyone is SO friendly! As of now we are 381 members strong!
  • I started to pack my office up at work. I’m hoping to have final grades in tomorrow to wrap up the semester.
  • I had my exit interview at work. It’s really starting to sink in that I’m finished there and moving on. SCARY!
  • I got in a little balloon ball and wiffle ball with the toddler today. (Balloon ball is our made up game of baseball with balloons. We use a long skinny one for the bat and a regular one for the ball. LOADS of fun!)
  • Did great on the food front but my journal fell apart at the end of the day.
  • I ran 2.5 miles tonight (you were all right, it’s addictive) in 30 minutes with my new play list . This ones my favorite so far! (see below -warning some explicit)

Ok, *takes deep breath in*, it’s time to hit the hay. Tomorrow is just as busy!

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 always think of Chandler Bing’s line on friends (something along the lines of IT ISNT THAT I DONT LIKE CHANGE—I JUST DONT WANNA BE THERE WHEN IT’S HAPPENING) when my life is morphing–whether it’s good or bad (your exit interview).
    I admire how youre keeping everything together (and giving us new videos!) even though this is such an exciting (stressful? who can say :)) time for you.

    love the playlist.
    Id forgotten how much I enjoy REEL BIG FISH!

    Its noy even to the bad addiction yet! Just wait!!!

    2.5 mile in 30 minutes impressive! and yes it is addicting, I started about a month ago, and I finally started to LIKE running…love is the next obvious step, not sure what will happen then…hmmm. For me setting up the playlist is KEY to making it through whatever run you accomplish, great choices!

    Believe it or not…I’m 53, and I love REEL BIG FISH too!! But then my 2 sons have a band, so I’m naturally around young music. They’re called PRONE (, by the way, in case they get big someday, and you can say….”I know their Mom!”….well, kinda.

    I love seeing the mixes….if it doesn’t going go for a walk tonight….so cross your fingers….

    i have never been a runner but maybe someday…

    Music helps me get through my time on the elliptical machine. Sometimes I even listne to podcasts from NPR to pass the time. Each minute doesn;t seem to last forever that way!

    I am trying to lose 95 pounds by the time my Broadway musical of 9 to 5 opens. check out my blog 95 by 9 to 5 on Myspace to see how I’m doing!

    sounds like you’re in an exciting place Roni! Lots of luck with everything!

    Thanks for posting your playlist! I like finding new music, and it’s hard these days ’cause it seems all radio stations (even public radio) gets on my nerves. I’ll take music tips wherever I can get them! :-)

    I noticed you have been running so I thought I would share one of my favorite workouts with you. If you go to itunes there is a section for Nike + mixes and the Serena Williams Interval Run is really worth the download. I have been using it about twice a week for two months now and my 5K is just a hair over 25 mins now…it was at 35 mins before…give it a try…great music and Serena is a great running coach. Have fun and keep it up!!!!
