One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Where Do I Begin?

The last week has been a whirlwind! I’ve wanted to blog since I got home from vacation but there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do. I can’t even sift through all my thoughts! So let me start at the beginning.

Last Thursday The Family and I headed off in a rental car to Florida for Little Bean’s 5th birthday Disney trip. I blogged all about it and shared tons of photos on TheUnworldlyTravelers — click here to check it out.


So cliche to say but I really can’t believe he’s 5.  I’ve come to terms with The-10-Year old being 10 but I can’t get over the fact baby No. 2 will be registered for kindergarten by the end of week.

We got back super late Thursday night leaving us with what I thought would be three days to get our acts together before work and school.

HA! I was so wrong. My laundry may be clean but it’s not folded or put away. The house is a mess. I haven’t wrapped my head around the week’s schedule yet and one word: TAXES! Ugh.

I’m just not ready to return to reality.

I did, however, tackle the food department and I’ve been killing it since I got home. It all kicked off Friday morning when I rummaged through my empty fridge and made a this really tasty quinoa and beet dish.

To prep for the week I made:

Told you, I killed it in the food department. It’s totally what I’m prioritizing right now. Especially after a week of eating out on vacation.

I’m also focusing on eating better while training for a CrossFit competition I registered for in June. I’ll be blogging about it and keeping my food journals again as I learn how to eat more like an athlete and less like a “dieter.”

I’ll get more into details on my goals later this week. Right now I’ve got to get to bed!

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, thanks for sharing your experiences here. I wanted to tell you that today I’ve entered for my first 10k, aged 54, and never done any running before.
    Although you’re a lot younger than me, your achievements have definitely shaped my aspirations!

      That’s awesome! I really believe it’s never too late to start ANYTHING! :)
