OMG! WTH! LOL! Yeah, I think I've gone through every emotion one can go through today. If you go to www.fitbloggin.com, you will see this:

FitBloggin’ Welcomes LA Boxing!
Posted: February 8th, 2010 | Author: Roni | Filed under: News | Comments (2)

Representatives from LA Boxing will be attending and you will get a chance to meet Shelly, the original Knock Out Mama!

It's official, I will be participating in Fitbloggin', a national convention for bloggers in the fitness industry. On one hand, I feel so honored, blessed, lucky, believed-in, and loved. And on the other hand, I am FREAKING out! I am a complete newbie to the blogging world. I ramble, and at times, I have diarrhea of the mouth when I write. Prime example- I just wrote diarrhea of the mouth. My grammar is a hot mess and what if people laugh when they see me? I don't know if I will ever be referred to as a knock out in this lifetime. When you meet me in person, I am nervous, shy, and never have the right words to say.

I am so excited to be a part of this awesome weekend- but man, do I have a lot of work to do. I mean what in the world am I going to wear? Should I wear spanx, or is that considered cheating? This is a long way from playdates at the local bounce house and library time with my kiddos. I will be so far out of my comfort zone... But then again, that is how I got to this point. I would have never walked through the doors of LA BOXING... But I stepped out of my comfort zone, took a chance, and now I'm an addict. Not to mention, I've learned so much about myself and about the person I want to be.

My biggest fear is that I'm going to be a letdown to people. I am your average gal. I'm a mom and I haven't been shipped off to a ranch like the Biggest Loser. I have childcare crisis’s, everyday struggles, and don't get me started on the weather. We're expecting another 20 inches of snow tonight with blizzard conditions. Talk about a journey- this has been one heck of a ride. I can't wait to learn more about the blogging world. If you had told me two months ago that I would be a part of a national conference, I would have laughed in your face. But for now, I'm relishing in the moment. Little do these people know, they will be teaching and educating me more than they could ever imagine.

This is going to be one crazy month. I think I'll scrap my plans of Oreos tonight and enjoy a bowl of broccoli during American Idol. Fitbloggin', here I come!:)


  1. Don't be nervous!!! We don't bite. LOL! :D I'll be at FitBloggin and I can't wait to meet you. I think by the time FitBloggin comes around we ought to be buried in snow at this rate (I'm in VA). We will all NEED this break.

    How was the broccoli?

  2. ADD Pizza, coke, sun chips, and anything else that you would'nt pull out of the ground, shot, or catch to that PUT DOWN LIST.
