*phew* I feel like I’ve been in a whirlwind for a few weeks now. Giving notice at my job  has given me a new burst of blogging inspiration. I accepted an ATHENOS Spokesblogger offer over on GreenLiteBites this month and have been having a BLAST coming up with recipes using feta. My inbox is bursting with questions I can’t wait to answer here on Roni’s Weigh. I have a new site in the works to celebrate my career move to professional blogger. I am a movin’… and a shakin’! :)

Personally, I’m coming off the high of planning my Mom’s surprise 60th birthday. Little guy has totally embraced Tae Kwon Do and I love watching him in class twice a week. I’ve been working out in the mornings and am excitedly planning my training for the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon this December. I’ve been feeling good. Busy! but good.

I’m really trying to embrace the whole do what I can when I can attitude. I found myself starting to fall into the "After" mindset.

After I leave my job I’ll…..
Once training starts I’ll…

I hate when I do this. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with looking forward to things but sometimes I use the future as an excuse for not doing something in the now. Does that makes sense?

Anyway, I’m not going to get into it tonight. I’m tired and I have a bunch of stuff I need to get done. If you happen to follow me on twitter or my FaceBook page you may have witnessed my geek side when I waited in line to get a new Droid phone….

Roni with Droid!

I’m planning on writing a review post about it on once I figure it all out and I’ll have plenty of time to do so while at the beach next week!

That’s right. Next week is my family’s yearly outing to the Jersey shore. I’ve been going for 16 years, 5 of them since weight loss blogging!

Last year when I was gone I sent twitter updates from vacation…

In 2008 I actually recorded videos and wrote posts prior to leaving and had them publish while I was gone. (ummmm yeah.. Can you tell this was when I didn’t have a full time job. lol)

In 2007 I just confessed I was Back from the Beach and Bloated. In 2006 I confessed as well. And finally 2005 was 1 month into weight loss, when I was taking a picture a month

MAN! I love bloggingI It’s so much fun to peer back in time.

This year I’ve had no time to prepare any posts or set up auto twitter updates. I just need a break. I may post, I may not. I’m not making any promises. I have a feeling I’ll get bursts of inspiration here and there but I’m unsure if I’ll have the means to update.

I will, however, be on twitter and I’ll post a pic or two to the facebook page. My goal this vacation is to have fun, unwind and reeeelax. I want to run on the beach, play in the sand and swim in the ocean. It’s as simple as that. :)

I hope you all have a great weekend and week. I’ll be around/back with lots of pics and a full report. :)

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.

    Hey! I got a Droid yesterday, too. Love it, but don’t entirely get it yet. Having trouble finding the pictures. They must be in there somewhere. Have a great trip to the shore!

    Blah, blah, blah, totally jealous of your droid phone, blah, blah! :p Have a great beach trip! Take it easy on the Maintenance Coordinator of the rental company you are renting from…she’s doing the best she can!!! (Personal experience there…) haha :)

    Have a great vacation Roni!!! I can’t wait to see what feta recipes you come up with. My favorite is cooked orzo, cooled, torn fresh spinach, feta cheese, pine nuts and a little olive oil and salt and pepper. You can serve it at room temperature or cold. It’s awesome and easy!

    I am SO JEALOUS that you quit your job to be a full-time blogger! I would like that very, very much, so I will be green with envy for now. I’d love it if you posted tips for fledgeling bloggers from time to time!
