One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

Looking Back at 2014 and Focusing on Today!

15 Comments 2560 views

I wasn’t going to do a looking-back post this year. I’m not sure why, I just figured no one would care but then I realized… I care! I LOVE looking back and collecting my favorite photos from the blog and posting them all in one place. These are the kinds of things I’ll have the most fun looking at in the years to come. So I decided this would be my #FlatOutLove task for the day! (Thanks Mary!)

Here’s a photo journey through my 2014. Each photo links to its corresponding post in case you’re curious.

I’m loving the #FlatOutLove challenge already because it’s making me really evaluate what’s important to me and how I spend my time. Who did their 10 minutes today? Any big plans scheduled? Fun dates planed? Crafts completed? 

On a side note, I cleaned out one more drawer before bed and got rid of a few pairs of workout pants I haven’t worn in years and it took all but 5 minutes. Only 6 more drawers to go and then I’m moving to the kitchen!

I do have to pause, however, as I’m traveling up to Mom’s tonight. She’s having hip replacement surgery and I want to help with Judy and be there for her. I’m not sure when I’ll be back home. It all depends how the surgery goes.

I need to give another shout out to FlatOut for sponsoring the #FlatOutLove challenge. Click here for a 50-cent-off printable coupon! And don’t forget to enter their sweepstakes for your chance to win a Fitbit!

Oh! and if you are interested in seeing last year’s year in photos, click here.

Hope you had a great day!

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.

    My #FlatOutLove 10 minutes yesterday was pulling out a couple of cards to mail to friends I haven’t seen or talked to in a long time. I love sending a surprise to their mailboxes!

    I did it. I did the 10 mins of yoga today….and as I knew I would, I feel better for it. What’s 10 minutes in 24 hs? Its nothing but for my flexibility it is everything.

      AWESOME!! It’s really amazing how easy the 10 minutes is and how awesome it makes us feel yet it takes to much effort to do it consistently!

    As part of my #FlatOutLove challenge, I got myself to bed a half hour earlier last night so that I could get some good quality time to just read. It was great to pull myself away from the computer and household duties and just relax and get into my book. It made for a great night’s sleep!
