One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Thursday Thoughts-a-palooza

8 Comments 1260 views

WOW… I feel like it’s been forever since posting a Thursday Thoughts. Let me just share the links I saved up and do a quick brain dump…

  • Healthy Menu Items May Sabotage Your Diet – Nicole sent me this and I find it fascinating! I believe I posted about it before. I just hope studies like this don’t influence restaurants to remove the healthy choices as I am one who appreciates and chooses them!
  • Steve, Don’t Eat It! – Ok this one I just found hysterically funny. It’s food related so I thought "why not" you may get a kick out of it too. :)
  • Commercial – Eat All Day – I can’t remember who sent this but they said it reminded them of me. When I was in my funk, I said "I really believe in life inertia. Good choices lead to other good choices and once you move in the general direction of healthy (happy), momentum will keep you going." and I believe that, one good choice does lead to another. I don’t think Nutri-Grain bars are the ultimate "good choice" but I love that they used that concept in the commercial and it illustrates my point nicely.
  • Cut Up to 900 Calories With Simple Substitutions – It’s the small choices people. The SMALL ones. :)
  • Lifestyle Is Not a Dirty Word – I republished a guest post on Divine Caroline on what "Lifestyle" really means to me.
  • A Feel Good Mom’s Day Post – I told you I was behind! I wanted to post about this closer to Mom’s day but I don’t care, it’s still a great story. Of course it made me cry. But in a good way. :)
  • Coupons! Some have been inquiring about Stonyfield yogurt coupons since I announced my sponsorship. I will have some with me when I go to BlogHer. In addition you can download some by filling out this form. I also wanted to pass on this coupon for Quaker Pancakes mix as it did win the my Pancake Taste Off. ;)

Since it’s been two weeks I’ve got lots of my own updates as well.

I think that’s it. I’m not making any claims as to what I have in the works for Roni’s Weigh as I’m slowly shifting from the full time blogging mindset to the (more satisfying) inspired blogging mindset. What does that mean? Well you may have notice some of my features (Question of the Week, Weekend Quotes, Ask Roni’s) have been inconsistent lately. It’s not that I will never post under those categories again. It’s just that I’m relieving myself of the pressure to turn out a post just because I’m "suppose to." Somehow that makes it a job, not a creative outlet that helps me reach my goals, which is how it all started. Honestly, I’m energized and renewed by my own realization of this.

OK, gotta run, I have a Chiropractor appointment as back and neck are still giving some trouble. :(

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.

    Your amazing…you always give me that lift. I haven’t blogged in FOREVER!! I need to get my life back on track….hit a major slump in blogging and tracking. Posts like this get me motivated. Thanks for being you and always giving me a little push. One of these days I will blog again…hopefully. I just felt like nobody was listening…I haven’t worked out in forever..need to get back on track with that.

    At least we have a four day weekend coming up!!

    Thanks again Roni!!!

    Thank you so much for the “Steve Don’t Eat It”. He is so funny! Have a great holiday weekend! We have the VT City Marathon here in Burlington on Sunday. Maybe you’ll be running it next year!

    Hey, you have a great site! I have recently started my own weight loss journey and found some hope in your story.

    Lately I think my scale has been lying to me. I have decided that throwing it out the window is too easy on it. Instead, I am going to punish it by putting my full weight on it every day! Yes, I have begun to have anger issues with inanimate objects…this too shall pass.
