 I SO should be sleeping but I couldn’t go to bed with out posting really quick! 

Tomorrow I’m heading to Toronto for TBEX, a conference specifically for travel bloggers. I wouldn’t categorize myself quite as a travel blogger YET, but it’s something I want to learn more about in hopes of growing TheUnworldlyTravelers into a thriving blog giving me more opportunities and reasons to travel.

If you remember, all of this was something I put on my birthday bucket list last year and as you are well aware, I’m not getting any younger. The time to DO is now. :)

My plan tomorrow morning is to go to the 6 a.m. CrossFit class (because I’m obsessed,) run my mile, and head to the airport. It’s going to be quite a challenge considering I’m not completely packed and it’s 11:30 p.m. but you’ll have this. I’ll sleep on the plane.

I worked with the editors at to package some of my archives in book form for the Kindle. The idea is to have a collection of posts that give my story and thoughts on weight loss in a easy-to-access format.

At first I wasn’t sold on the idea considering my archives are all available here and I don’t actually own a Kindle, but then I realized others may find it helpful.

So there you have it, a new book, a trip to Toronto, oh! And I had fun with a new breakfast idea on GreenLiteBites using chia seeds!


I was on a roll today even though I had to put out a few FitBloggin‘ fires and I took the kids to the pool.

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.

    LOL, I don’t own a kindle either, but I’ll buy it to read on my laptop or iPad would probably work too, I guess. So congrats!

    I generally “thrive on busy too.”

    & that water looks a bit shallow for him to be JUMPING into… looks like that may have earned him a whistle from the lifeguard.

      lol I KNOW! It looks more impressive than it was. He really just jumped for the photo.

    I started reading the book from the free excerpt and had to buy it because I can relate to SO much that I read.. I’ve followed your blog in the past 6 months on and off and haven’t had time to go back and read a lot.. so I’m happy you decided to do the book.. Thanks..

    I “thrive off of busy” too. Right now things have slowed down for me and I find myself wasting time. When I’m busy, I have no alternative but to squeeze in things. Does that make sense? Have a great trip.

    I do own a Kindle, as a matter of fact, I am using it to post this. :) My point though is that even though I will have to wait a bit to purchase your book, I do follow your blog and have been for quite some time. You inspire me, and thank you for being real.
