3 Little Nuggets

1 Comments 1990 views

No, not those type of nuggets! Just little things I want to share on this busy Monday.

The first one is inspired by the 9-Year-Old. When I ask him to do something, anything from folding his clothes to making toast, he has a habit of responding,

“But I’m not good at it.” 

It drives me nuts! I immediately say,

“Well, how do you think you’ll get good at it?”

BY DOING IT! 

I hate helplessness. It’s just a pet peeve and I had to get that off my chest.

My second little nugget was shared on the wycwyc blog today — click here to see the post. The line I can’t get out of my head is:

Do the good work without an attachment to the outcome.

This is totally how I feel about where I have ended on my crazy weight-loss-maintenance-fitness journey.

Really let that line sink in your brain for a minute. It’s similar to falling in love with the process and not just the goal. That shift is HUGE and really helped me stop the crazy yo-yo habit I used to have.

Finally — and this is in my food journal but it’s such as awesome food nugget I had to share it here —  these two words.

Ready?

AVOCADO TOAST!

Why didn’t anyone tell me it was so good! I’m obsessed. Click here to check out my latest recipe for the California Avocado Commission.

OK, that’s all I’ve got. Considering I overslept today I probably should be in bed already. :)

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.

    You should try it with an over easy egg. It’s also great with a whole wheat pita!!
