One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

THURSDAY THOUGHTS

Thursday Thoughts: Time Flies!

9 Comments 1212 views

Ok.. so it’s REALLY starting to occur to me that I’m pregnant. I think I’ve been distracting myself in case something happens but it hit me yesterday that I’m over two months! I’m not completely out of the worry zone but every day that goes by I get more confident. Once I hit the 3 month mark I may celebrate with a video and do video updates once a week or so. That would be more fun then photos I think. We’ll see.

Time really has been flying. I’ve had some of these links in my inbox since early August. Did you know it was September? I just realized this morning. That’s just pure craziness!

Anyway, let’s get to these links and then I’ll update a few things. You remember the old Thursday Thoughts drill, right? :)

  • First of all did you see this article about Brian’s twitter diet? I’ll be screaming the power of blogs and social media when it comes to weight loss or simply living healthier until the day I die. This blog was started over 5 years ago for the same purpose and here I still am. Maintaining the loss, living consciously, reaching goals and hopefully inspiring others. It’s why I started BlogToLose. It’s why I’m planning another conference. It’s why I still keep my food journal on twitter. It’s why I will write this blog for as long as humanly possible. Can you tell I’m passionate about this? Really. I am. :)
  • Since I’m on the healthy blog bandwagon I’ll use this time to mention Healthy Living Blogs. A fabulous directory of… well… healthy living blogs. What can I say? They have the perfect name. ;) Healthy Living Blogs is a growing, enormous bunch! I’m proud to be apart of it.
  • Let’s move to my favorite subject besides blogging, FOOD! I have two great links saved. One is about portion distortion. It’s really getting out of hand, isn’t it? I swear, we ordered dessert the other day to split among the 3 of us and it was STILL too big. I get the whole value thing and that we love getting more for our money but there’s a point where it’s just ridiculous. It’s like we are addicted to the ‘more is better’ mentality.
  • Speaking of addiction, according to this article, "studies show that some foods actually have a narcotic-like effect on our brains" They put chocolate, sugar, cheese, and fast food in their top 5. All of which I can honestly say are problem foods for me.
  • Finally, I’m going to end with this post on thought provoking questions. You guys know how much I love to ask the Question of the Week. I’ve been doing it for 2 and half years now and still get a good conversation going now and then, like last weeks, Do You Count Calories, Fat or Weigh Your Food?. I plan on using some of the questions listed in that post as inspiration for future weeks.

My Updates this week…

I think that’s all I got me in tonight. I’m slowly finding my self-emplyment groove. I can see it only getting better from here on out. :)

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 KNOW! My ad company has messed up the sizes they are serving me. It’s making me angry! I have an email out them. If it happens again just refresh. So sorry.

    Roni,

    The Vegas Marathon is awesome but, if you do have to drop down the half, I think it’d be even awesomer. Last year the half was entirely on the strip, while the marathon vears off towards the mountains for a good chunk. I did the full last year and plan to go back for the half in the future. Also, there was a Santa 5k that same weekend last year, so that might be another fun option – (http://www.lasvegassantarun.org/) Good luck!

    Roni, if you can get your hands on a copy of the latest Runner’s World, there is a great article about running during pregnancy in it.

    Congrats on baby #2. If know you probably get all sorts of awards and all but if you have a moment, I created an award for those bloggers who have motivated and challenged me and you are an obvious recipient. You’ve done so much for this blogging community that I couldn’t even list the ways you inspire me.
