Thursday Thoughts

It’s 9:35 AM and I’m ALMOST done with my Thursday Thoughts post. What? Look outside… Is the sky falling? Any pigs flying out there?

In all seriousness, I’m trying to get into a new groove. My staying up too late, snacking and not getting enough sleep is really starting to take its toll. So I’m in the midst of finding a new routine. I’ll be starting a new training schedule come monday (more on that later as I edit my calender.) I think gharkness was right about my funk. I need to find my next goal. I do have the half and full marathons but I need something more then running (CanNOT believe I just said that.) I’ll be writing about my new plan this weekend.

Ok, let’s move on to these thoughts…

Other News – Not a lot of progress on the cookbook but I’m way further then I’ve ever been. And… Ummm… Hmpf other then that I can’t think of anything else going on besides the fact that I had an interview for a possible REAL job and I’m planning a Fit Bloggers conference. Yup.. I’m insane. I admit it. More to come on these two topics in the near future. Promise. Right now I gotta go… I have a meeting about the new house… I have to clean the old house that hasn’t had a showing in over a week…. and I need to hit the gym before the toddler gets out of school. Life is good, busy but good. Guess I’m out of my funk… huh? :~D

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.

    Goo Roni! I’ll check out all the great links during nap time ;)

    Routine is key. I’ve been having a real hard time going back to sleep after waking up at 1 a.m. Up til like 4 and then crappy sleep until DD2 wakes up at 6:15 ish. I need to find a better groove and now have a regular workout routine. BUT to celebrate my birthday today I actually decided to ditch the “special breakfast” and use the extra time for a longer workout. huh?!? So maybe I’m on my way to a better routine too. Thanks for all your help along the way!!

    And I launched my new blog! www.lunzygras.com is now official. thanks for all the help on that end. Have a great day!

    Love your Thursday Thoughts! And I’m glad you’re out of that funk.

    A couple of things, though: I couldn’t get the link to “reaching your weight loss goals” to work … and I find it funny that in the “best Diet blogs” article, the screen shot of your page includes a Dunkin Donuts ad.

    That’s funny I just tested the link and it works. Hmmm here’s the URL… http://www.examiner.com/x-1943-Miami-Fitness-Examiner~y2009m4d8-climb

    And I KNOW! I need to talk about RGM on the donuts ads. LOL

    Thanks for the tips on candy! I know the bf’s parents will shower me with it this weekend, so it’s good to have a strategy in place!

    Good luck with both the job and the house!

    what about fitness/weight goal and something that has NOTHING to do with that at all?

    Michelle – I’m not sure what you mean.

    Sorry..it’s 2:16am in the morning..it probably made sense to me. Establish goals which have to do with fitness/weight ie. run a 1/2 marathon, get to 140lbs, work out 5 times a week and goals that don’t have anything to do with them ie. write down five things I am grateful for each night, vol. once a week for three months, incorporate a new food once a week in my diet, save five dollars a day to spend on something that brings me job, get to bed before 10pm each night, spend 15 minutes each morning for me, have a date night with my husband once every two weeks, write a letter once a week to friends/family/etc.

    I think it’s helped me have a mix of things. For me at least it makes me less focused, and less frustrated, on the narrow focus of fitnees/weight goals. That’s just me talking…I am not pushing that on you. I have a gratitude journals which I write in every night. I know you’re extremley busy…you’re crazy busy. But maybe it’s once a week picking out a book at the bookstore w/ your little one…etc.

    does that make sense? :)

    thanks for always inspiring me :)

    It does! And that’s what I thought you meant and that’s EXACTLY what I’m doing. :)

    I’m a fan of the morning edition of Thursday Thoughts! With being a student, in the evenings I’m usually doing homework (or at least should be) so this gives me time to really read them and look at all the links before I forget and the next Thursday Thoughts comes around!

    I’m working on making goals beyond just school and finishing up my work before I graduate. My situation is the flipped version of yours (I should probably be thinking about the physical more) but I’ll be looking forward to your new plan. Thanks for some good info again Roni :) Have a good holiday weekend!

    “IF I COULD EAT JUST ONE I WOULDN’T CARE!”

    Seriously.

    I had read the brown fat discovery and thought it was very interesting. Also, I really liked the list of top 10 diet blogs. This journey to health is such a complex one that is is helpful to read other’s perspectives and thoughts about it.

    I know that blogging is helping me work through my health issues. We will see if that continues.

    Thank you so SO much for the “10 Best Dieting Blogs for Women” link! I’m always on the lookout for something new to read!!

    The “Fat Color” is something that I saw elsewhere (although didn’t really read it until I saw it linked here!)

    www.kateharding.net is a really great website for understanding Health At Every Size and I think it could be of value to readers here.

    Also, (and this might seem weird) have you ever considered setting a goal, kinda like Lent? Like picking one habit to change or give up, but just for that designated time? It might shake things up for you, but if it doesn’t work out or needs to be tweaked, there’s no real failure involved, you only have to do it for X number of weeks, or on the next 10 Fridays or whatever. It might be a good way to try out something new or slowly work it into your lifestyle. I don’t do Lent myself, but I think I might try this.

    Cadbury Mini-Eggs are my weakness! And I can only get them once a year, so I make em’ last by storing them in the back of the freezer. I can actually control myself with them more than any other candy because I know I can only get them at Easter-time.

    Brown fat? White fat? How do I know what color fat I have? Things that make you
    go hmm…..

    I like the candy list, especially the alternative ideas. Even if chocolate is a big part of easter it doesn’t have to be the only thing. When we were kids we would go egg hunting in my grand-ma’s house, and we would find dark chocolate bunnies, a few truffle-like eggs and hard boiled eggs my grand-ma dyed herself, but each of us would also find a new PJ, a few colouring book (when very young) or illustrated educative books on our favourite subjects and novels we liked as we got older. We are 4 kids so I went egg hunting until I was 15 because my youngest brother was still young. After a while those books became the most important part of the loot! Though I can’t say no to dark chocolate either :) Of course that’s the first link I checked :D

    Congrats for making the list!

    Hey Roni- I looked at your calendar and noticed a footnote that said the Baltimore Marathon. Is this a new thing??? Am I letting the cat out of the bag? ;) Thanks for all the great links. Lots of good stuff!!

    just an FYI, you can use more than one promo code per order for the Vitatops. so BOTH you mentioned can be used for one order. I get email coupon codes from vatalicious and always use them plus teh RONISWEIGH code. after you apply the code at checkout just add another and apply again.

    If I could eat “just one”, I probably wouldn’t be IN this predicament! You are showing some serioius self- restraint if you are only hitting the 3 mile radius! :) That statement made me SMILE! I know exactly what you mean, but I am trying! We leave for Tennessee on Monday. The candy goes with us. It will NOT come home! Anything left, still in it’s packaging will be sent to the Food Pantry.

    Congrats on making the Top 10 list…great accomplishment! Easter candy can’t come home here…the only will-power I have is to leave it in the store, because once it’s here, it’s going to be something I’ll wear soon. :( A friend is using the audio from thinkequalsthin.com and loves it…maybe useful? You go, girlfriend…keep sharing those Thursday Thoughts with us!!
