Sometimes I just. . .

. . . don’t feel like motivating. I realize this is a self inflicted responsibility. Nobody is forcing me to blog. I enjoy it. I find it to be a much needed outlet and I’m just simply wired for it. If I had a dime for every idea that shot through my head during the day for blog posts I’d be a rich women. But I have a life, a job, a family and I just can’t drop everything to blog (even though sometimes I want to.) The problem is by the end of the day when I do have the time I don’t have the same motivation as I did during the day. I’m not motivated and I don’t feel like motivating. Bad combination for a weight loss blogger. :)

. . .want things to work. Am I the only one who feels like they are constantly putting out fires? My computer has been acting up. My wireless giving me problems. Our TV is not working properly. The lights on our tree weren’t lighting. Geesh! It’s like anything electronic in my life is on the blitz!

. . .wonder what heck I’m doing, like this morning, in my first boot-camp class while on my 100th jumping jack. Then that hour flies by. I’m all sweaty, sore, and out of breath yet I feel fantastic. That’s when it hits me. This (as in exercise) is so good for my body and soul.

. . .LOVE taking pictures.

. . .want to EAT HIM UP! (instead I settled for the Banana Oatmeal Cups with Chocolate Chips we were making)

. . .can’t believe that’s my family.

. . .need a bowl of homemade soup. (recipe coming soon!) :)

. . .want comfort food. (made Baked Rotini tonight for dinner)

. . .LOVE his facial expressions.

. . .can’t get over how big my little man is. (that’s him TWO YEARS ago on santa’s lap)

. . .need my glasses. I can’t believe how long I have been living without them. Finally got a new pair.

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.

    What a fun post this was! Love the pictures, the thoughts, and wanted to lick the rotini right off my screen :)

    hi roni,
    i could so relate to what you wrote. i often feel like there is just not enough time in the day to do all the things i need to do, plus do the blogging as well. i think that is a mom-thing!
    loved the pix! you guys look like you are having so much fun.

    I feel the same way about blogging. I love to do it but some days I’m just so tired. I try to do some posts ahead of time when I’m super motivated and have ideas so that I can just schedule them if the “i don’t wanna” days happen.

    BUT you are amazing and blessed. Thank you for just being you ;-)

    The Little Guy looks just like his dad! So cute!

    Baked rotini is going to be on MY dinner table this next week! YUM!


    December 6, 2009

    The little guy has grown!!!!!!! I agree with the other comment he looks a lot like his dad!

    Love the glasses. Your little guy is so big now.

    I love how you just lay it all out there Roni … all “humany” and all. (not sure if that is a word). I even tell the hubby … Roni was saying …. and he is like … WHO is Roni ..heehee

    Adorable! My bf absolutely loves when I wear my glasses. I think lots of men secretly think they’re pretty sexy.

    Your tree looks so pretty. Have an enjoyable “Sensational Sunday”!

    One of your best posts ever. Thanks for the pics and all that you do!

    Thanks for everything you do, Roni. It really is inspiring, and you really do have an amazing family. Thanks for taking the time to help me and my fellow readers through our own journeys.

    This time of year especially can be hard I think. But you have to know that your hard work continues to motivate even on days you don’t post. For instance, I’ve now kept a food journal for a week, based on your post about making goals for December and not waiting until the new year.

    Sometimes a blog just has to divert me from nosh – and that’s what this post did for me. So from one weight loss blog to another. A++

    This entry reminds me of the part in Marley and Me where the guy is rattling through the daily ins and outs of his life in sequence to show how fast time went, did you see that movie? It was a great sequence:)

    It’s okay to sometimes lose motivation. If you like doing something, you’ll never completely stop doing it.

    Hi Roni,

    I know how you feel about blogging, twitter, and social media. I have definitely been feeling that way lately with my blogs and side work. I’ve been focusing on my family and my actual work. Sometimes, I have to kick myself and just toremember its a habit. Good Habits take time to form and are easy to lose. This reminds me of the simple Jerry Seinfeld Productivity Secret.
