One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


#wycwyc’ing Our Walks

I know I shared these two photos yesterday but I wanted to share them again.



The past two days I’ve (we’ve) been taking advantage of summer and not only walking but running errands, playing and having fun when we could.

And yes it’s been hot as $hit out!

The kids invented a wagon game where we take turns. One person rides, one pulls and the other chases. It’s a blast, especially when I get to ride!


Earlier today I cleaned off a few book shelves and plucked a crap-ton (yes, that’s an official term) of books I haven’t looked at in years. They are from a different era of my life and completely outdated.

So we piled them, a few others AND a copy of What You Can When You Can in the wagon and took a short detour on this afternoon’s walk and donated the to the library.

Then we played our wagon chase game again. We were all huffing and puffing!

Yesterday we found the cutest little frog too…

This is what #wycwyc is all about for me. :)

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.

    Hah, I have (or had, I can’t remember if I purged it) Designing Web Usability book (and I’m a DBA by trade). Doesn’t it feel wrong to purge them? I know the information is just so obsolete now, but it all feels so wrong. I still can’t really get behind computer ebooks. There’s just a need to flip around that ebooks just don’t have.

      Missing a sentence in there…I mean to say I wish I could just get them all as ebooks.

    That sounds like a fun game and activities like that are my favorite way to be more active. I should really donate some of my books to the library…I have way too many.
