One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

JOURNAL

Over-the-MOON Excited!

6 Comments 2024 views

This post is the complete opposite of yesterday’s. It’s amazing what a productive day can do for your mood and motivation.

First, I kicked off the day with a crazy workout. My gym likes to do fun things on holidays, so we worked in groups of two. My partner and I had a blast. Well, I had a blast — I can’t speak for her. (More details in my journal below.)

I got home and hung out with a kids before shipping them off to school. I decided to walk Evan even though it was cold and I had a busy day ahead. I just wanted a little sunlight and fresh air.

When I got back it was pedal-to-the-metal time. Carla and I recorded this week’s podcast and then I edited and prepped everything for publishing. (It’s live by the way — click here to check it out.)

While I was working on that I got an email saying the book trailer was done. DONE!

I dropped everthing to get it online.

My goal was something informative, inspirational and promotional, and it’s exactly what I envisioned. I am beyond happy with it. Clickspark did an AMAZING job and was a dream to work with.

I’d love your thoughts and if you can share it, please do! I can’t believe how much this little challenge has grown. It’s blowing my mind and the book isn’t even out yet. Speaking of… you can preorder it on Amazon!

As if all of that wasn’t enough Ryan and I had some mother-son time and went on a run/walk before dinner. Oh! And THEN my kids actually ate dinner… without complaint! It was like the icing on the good day cake!

And now I’m off for some TV time with The Husband.

Just a GREAT day. I’m all smiles over here!

Food Journal

  • 7 a.m. Recovery shake
  • 9 a.m. 1/2 avocado turned into chocolate-peanut butter pudding — I’m working on a new recipe for GLB. It’s not yet ready for prime time but it’s getting there!
  • 11 a.m. leftover green beans tossed with a handful of almonds.
  • 2 p.m. leftover meatloaf and a large side of broccoli
  • 5 p.m. 1/2 banana
  • 7 p.m. 3 chicken tacos made with boneless thigh meat, avocado, spinach and cheese on crunchy corn shells.

Activity Journal 

  • 6 a.m. workout: Special April Fool’s Day workout was a partner event. For my half I…
    Ran 1 mile
    25 Box Jumps
    25 Kettle Bell Swings with 40lbs
    25 Knee to Elbows
    25 Push Press @ 53lbs

    It was actually kind of fun if you believe it. My partner did the same and we completed it in 39 minutes I think.
  • 9 a.m. 2-mile walk to Evan’s school and back.
  • 5 p.m. 2 Mile run/walk with the 9-Year-Old — I’m trying to do one conscious afternoon activity a day. It’s my new goal.

  • Supplements taken.

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.

    Hi Roni! I love your site so much and try to check daily but I’m usually on my phone and have such a hard time-as soon as I click “read more” I get sent to an ad and then the app store:( Just wondering if I’m the only one or if there’s a way to help?

      Molly – I’m trying to get to the bottom of this! It’s not you! I have some invasive ad and I’m trying to figure out which network it’s coming from.
