One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Home and Playing Catch-up

The worst part of any vacation is the return to reality. Am I right?

I’m attempting to refinance the house in the middle of tax season, while planning FitBloggin‘ during the release of my first published book.

Maaaaaybe taking a vacation in the middle of all the wasn’t the best idea but I have no regrets. It was an awesome few days and I got some much needed alone time with The Husband.

We got home this morning around noon but somebody — *cough* me — left her laptop on the train. I didn’t even realize until the Amtrak police called to let me know it was in Philly. Thankfully the officer put it on a train back to Baltimore and I was able to pick it up at the station but it killed my afternoon. I didn’t even have time to take a shower before the kids got home from school, and let me tell you, I needed a shower. Twenty-six hours on a train ain’t pretty.

Forgetting my laptop may have been the worst part of my day but getting home to these guys was the best!


I made a great dinner — click here to check it out. 


And we just hung out with the kids.


It was so nice to be home.

In other news… 

Even though #wycwyc’s official pub date is May 5, Amazon has started shipping pre-orders! It totally threw me off guard. Especially as people started sharing photos on Facebook and such. If you are on Facebook, Twitter or tumblr you can help with the release of the book by participating in our Thunderclap — click here to see how it works. It’s super easy!

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.

    That roast chicken looks good! Coconut oil on popcorn? Hmmmm, haven’t tried that before – intriguing…….

    I have a question about the popcorn. How do you make it? With the paperbag in the microwave or stove top?

      I use a brown paper bag. You know what.. I’ll do a short video post about it as I think it’s something most folks don’t realize you can do. I’ll try to get it up next week.
