New Comments and Old Routines

22 Comments 1441 views

Today I decided it was time to get back to my routine. Sort of.

Normally Tuesday and Thursdays are my early workout days. I wake up at 5:30AM run to the gym and take BodyPump and then run home. I’ve been doing it for months and have really grown attached to it in a weird way.

Well, I haven’t gone since the Tuesday before FitBloggin’ and I could literally feel myself falling out of the habit. So this morning I took a baby step back towards my routine.

Instead of waking up early I decided to take the later 9AM class and run there with Little Bean in the stroller. WHO by the way looks like a giant in it!

This was him last April…

WOW.

Anyway, I got all decked out in some FitBloggin’ swag and away we went!

Isn’t that a fun blue? I have to admit I was a little insecure about the form fitting tank but I decided to own it. :)

The run and class were fun and it was a much needed stress release for me. I really think I’m not only now addicted to working out physically (my body craves it anymore) but mentally as well. Can you get addicted to both negative and positive things? I think so!

And I do agree with the tank..

Sweat IS liquid awesome.

And so is this little guy..

:)

After our active morning, Bean took a nap and I got to work. I’ve been having some technical issues on the blog as I attempted to install a better comment feature so we can actually host discussions (especially for our weekly weigh ins.) I’m not going to get into any of the boring technical details. Lets just say I’ve been banging my head against the monitor for 2 days BUT It’s all fixed now!

I had to compromise the "Like" feature but now we have the ability to reply and share. Don’t worry, you don’t NEED to create an account if you don’t want to. Check it out below and let me know what you think.

I’ve been trying to get through all of the comments on this weeks weigh in but forgive me if I missed yours. I really lost a lot of time with all the technical glitches.

Ok, I’m off. I’ve been really tired this week. I need to get some sleep.

Oh! And I did post a new fun idea on GreenLiteBites too. Click here to check out my new idea for Overnight Steel Cut Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

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.

    Maybe the technical issues are why my brave FIRST weigh in ever was deleted this morning. :( I’ll try again next week!

      Ok, well upgrading wordpress was a bad idea. I lost all my thumb. I also could not get all the comments imported into disqus, something batty with the exported file. They were just small annoying things that needed to be fixed. Ugh. ANd I have NO idea where it’s gone. He’s growing up so fast!!

    At least you take on the challenge. I walk away from it and that is why I still have dial-up–ugh!

    for some reason i was unable to comment on wed weigh in. there was no comment box for me! glad all is fixed!!! i was down at wi but this week will not show that as i have celebrated my birthday…my choice…and i’m good with it…back in the saddle so to speak..back to routine and simplicity…that’s what makes me happiest; keeping it simple, keeping it on plan, and keeping myself up there with the rest of the important stuff in life.

      The “Some reason” was all my technical problems I talked about above. Sorry. :( Was working on it for 2 days. Next week should go much smoother!

    I’m looking forward to getting back into my exercise routine now that I’m leaving my (more than full time) job. I was struggling to get back to exercise while trying to start a business on the side. I won’t be able to take classes for a while until my business takes off, but I’m glad I’m going to have more time to take care of myself because it’s so important to me.

    I’ve also had a crazy week. So I hope to have this kind of day Sunday. Kicking off the day with a workout and then planning meals for the week. I’m so inspired by attending FitBloggin that I feel I can reach the weight loss goal I set for the next 3 months. How is little bean so big! I was in awe of how much he’s grown when I saw him last week. He does look like a giant in the stroller. :)

    As someone who could win a prize for the most inflexible hips in the world, the picture of you in the yoga sitting pose with your foot near your hip, makes me insanely jealous. Did you know that could make someone jealous? I stretch and stretch and stretch and still if I sit in a butterfly my knees are near my ears. I think it must be my bone structure or something.

      lol no I didn’t think of it. I’ve gotten a lot more flexible since taking yoga regularly. I never used to be able to touch my toes!

    I love the shirt and I love that you can do a quick comment! Good work.

      RoniNoone

      September 28, 2012

      Thanks! :) And I’m loving the reply feature.. as you can tell. :)

    but it does make me sign or log in somehow, i should just create an account with you…

      RoniNoone

      September 28, 2012

      You don’t have to create an account unless you want to by clicking the check box. If you don’t then it works just like the old comments and has you enter a name and email. That’s how I tested it anyway, but feel free to join, it does make it easier. Oh! Or you can use your twitter/facebook/g+, etc. I liked that feature too.
