One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Feel-Good Friday: The Confidence Edition

7 Comments 2737 views

This was the first thing I saw online this morning and it actually made me cry. (Yes, I am the world’s biggest sap.)

I so admire people with that kind of confidence. Flash mobs always inspire me and it helped kick off my Friday with feel-good feelings.

So I decided to run with it.

Once I settled into my desk I decided to take a few minutes and make a Christmas song playlist on Spotify.

I then proceeded to blast it all morning while chipping away at lots of little nagging tasks I had on the old to-do list like organizing my inbox and cleaning out spam comments.

I’m not sure it totally put me in the Christmas spirit yet but it helped.

The rest of the morning was devoted to conference calls and photo editing. I even got a chance to post my latest salad idea on GreenLiteBites: Brussels Sprout Salad With Maple-Spiced Ham. 

Brussels Sprout Salad With Maple-Spiced Ham

Being creative in the kitchen always puts me in a better mood. Always.

Tonight I made some chicken and roasted sweet potatoes to take tomorrow to the CrossFit competition my gym is having.

They came out amazing! I added a touch of maple syrup, molasses, allspice and rosemary.

The competition is a little in-house thing our trainers put together and I’m actually competing in the Rx division. I’m not ready but decided to take the leap and challenge myself.  What the heck? Right?

Anyway, my final Feel Good Friday contribution is this quote from…


I couldn’t agree more.

Here’s today’s food journal. I’ve been killing it lately and love the extra accountability of keeping a record. It’s stopped quite a few mindless bites this week.

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.

    Sort of a general comment: I’ve been amazed at how interested I am in your day to day life since I don’t have kids and half of a same-sex couple and a little older than you – I think it’s your transparency and enterprising spirit. Plus it seems like you’re incredibly consistent. Day in and out. I don’t eat meat but you have plenty of vegetarian friendly recipe ideas. I’m just so impressed I had to comment. I have commented before under a little different name. I loved the flash mob video. So did my spouse, who sings in two choirs. Bravo!

    Oh I forgot to say – I love how nice you are to your children. More than nice. Inspiring. I admire that about you every time I read your blog. Such a contrast to the awfulness in the paper.

    Now I don’t feel alone…I cried also when I saw that video. LOL

      Really, I cry almost every time I see a flash mob video! lol

    Those roasted sweet potatoes look to die for. I hope you’ll share the recipe.
