One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Backlogged Pre-BlogHer Thursday Thoughts

9 Comments 1434 views

I am a very self-centered blogger–ok, ok, stop nodding in agreement, Geesh! What I mean is I blog from my perspective not yours. It’s really the only way that it makes sense to me. I’m too "real time" to think ahead. I blog when I get inspired and write about what’s going on today, now, in my head. Maybe when I have more time on my hands I’ll pre-plan some posts, like the Ask Roni’s but in general what you see is what you get from me.

That being said I’m writing this on Wednesday night and will publish it for Thursday. It’s the night before I leave for the BlogHer conference and I have all these links built up since I’ve been shunning Thursday Thoughts posts due to lack of time.

So get ready for a HUGE brain dump. I’m not sure you’ll make it through this one…

Are you still with me? I better start to wrap this up, huh? In my world…

Other news….

I have ONE MORE WEEK OF WORK! Just thinking about it gives me a sigh of relief. I have finally made peace with this decision. I’m doing what I love right now at this very moment. I have confidence that I can build a career out of my passion and I refuse to second guess myself any longer. The conference, my book ideas, my blogs.. I have WAY more than enough to keep me busy. :)

Ok, I’m out. Hopefully you are reading this on Thursday and I’m en-route to New York City on the train. I plan on keeping my food journal with pictures while at the conference and I’m going to try to stop by nightly to post them. I’ll also be posting any good blogging nuggets I pick up over on

Oh! and I’m rounding up anyone in NYC who would like to run with me Sunday in Central Park. I have 6 miles to complete Week 1 of my marathon training! So far so good but let me tell you.. I’m SORE! :)

Have a great Thursday!

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 love to read ‘realtime’ blogs better. Weight loss stories are the best! Have a great time at the conference and enjoy your run!

    Wow you are so busy! Thanks for all the links, this will keep me busy for a while.

    I’ve always said the diet that works is the one you can stick to. I’ll have to check out the links when I have more time. I’m just breezing by … still on vacation, struggling to make good choices.

    I’m curious to know what this whole fitblogging thing is all about. I’m looking forward to a summary/update from you when you return!

    “I would describe my diet as low fat with an eye on carbs. It works for me because I focus on more on the how and less on the what. If that makes sense. ”

    Yep, perfect sense to me! I’m coming up on my one-year anniversary of maintaining a ~140-pound loss, and my approach has been to focus on the quality of my fats and carbs rather than the quantity. I end up erring on the lower-fat side of things because I want the volume; I can eat a lot more cucumber slices for 100 calories than I can almonds, although I love and eat both!

    Thanks for the shout out! :) Girl, you are so busy I am exhausted reading about all that you do and how you keep up with all of your sites!! I saw you at BlogHer but didn’t get a chance to say hi. I will come to your next FitBloggin’ though so I will get to actually speak with you then!
