One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Chipping Away

4 Comments 2126 views

That’s my strategy.

I just keep chipping away, doing what I can when I can and it’s keeping me sane.

This morning I published the #wycwyc podcast and Carla and I recorded next week’s. Yesterday I posted a new smoothie idea with a video on GreenLiteBites. The rest of the day was spent on the phone either figuring out logistics for FitBloggin‘ or talking with Woman’s Day, which is writing a story about my weight loss and #wycwyc.

The day seemed to fly by as I jumped from task to task. When the kids came home. We grilled.

And then took Ryan to his spring concert. He was singing in the chorus. (I don’t know how I’m not going to cry through every event in these boys’ lives — I’m such a sap!)

Right now I’m watching Survivor with the family and it’s the perfect ending to a busy 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.

    How long do your potatoes (regular and sweet) take to cook on the grill? I’ve never done that before, but I’d love to try!

      The regular ones take longer but my sweet were much bigger so I put them all on there. They usually take an hour and I was slow cooking the chicken so that worked. Sometimes I will start them in the microwave and then finish them not he grill if I’m short on time.

    That all looks very productive! I’m in the UK and I wish we could get that spaghetti squash over here, I’d love to try it.
