Hey guys, I’m SO sorry this is late. It makes it even worse that I’m on the West Coast considering it’s “tomorrow” already. Regardless, I’m sorry. I should have had it queued up knowing the day I had scheduled.

And Oh. My. What a day!

I would love to stay up all night telling you about it but honestly I’m exhausted so you are going to get the bullet list version, but before I start I have to ask you a favor. Please forget (or at least don’t mention) what magazine I told you I’ll be in and which show I’m shooting a segment for, OK? I, ummm, really wasn’t suppose to tell you but I did and now I’m doing damage control. So let’s just say I’m working with a major magazine and a national talk show. Mmmkay?

Now that we got that out of the way, this is pretty much how my day went.

1. Morning run. 

I couldn’t help myself. I was up about an hour early and I just HAD to see a little of Hollywood so I snuck in about a mile and a half and caught a glimpse of the Hollywood sign!


2. My fellow bloggers. 

I met up with Erika and Michelle and we become instant buddies. LOVE these women!

3 . Interviews and B-roll

We spent about 2 hours recording a little about our backgrounds and some footage for “the show.”

4. Hair, makeup and wardrobe!!

Boy, a girl can get used to being pampered.

I’m wearing boots and skinny jeans! No, you don’t understand — I AM wearing BOOTS and SKINNY JEANS.

I don’t do boots and skinny jeans. I just don’t.

I may have to change my policy. lol

5. Photo shoot!

We did shots in workouts clothes and dressed up, alone and in the group. They even had our before pictures to pose by!

6. Interviews

We sat down and talked for some time. Unfortunately, you will have to wait until February to get the details. :(

7. Dinner

I didn’t take any pictures but I had a wonderful meal at the hotel with all these amazing, inspirational women!

8. CrossFit

I know. I know. I’m crazy but hey, I’m only here for a couple of days and I’m sucking the marrow out of it. So when Paola reached out and told me she was so close, we just HAD to meet up for a workout.

It was an awesome partner workout, too, and we kicked A$$!

9. BED! 

As in right now. I’m exhausted. I’ve been going non-stop since 6:30 this morning and right now it’s 11 p.m. Not to mention 2 a.m. my time. I know sleep is important but sometimes you just need to seize the day!

Now, I realize I’m late but those who are weighing in with me please post your updates! Late is better than never. :)

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.

    Wonderful pictures–looks like you had a great time.
    Your bucket list has write a book–it could be a picture book of your adventures (but I think your cookbook also counts.)

    First – what magazine? what talk show?
    Second – I was walking all over the place in Hollywood which just ISN’T DONE!
    Third – Can’t believe I too love skinny jeans and boots. Just bought black suede pumps. Un f’ing believable
    Fourth – Weight down 1.4 lbs and still in maintenance.
    Fifth – I love your blog. You are an inspiration and I truly believe this is helping me stay on track
    Have a great trip home.

      Nice loss!!! So glad it’s helping too. :)

    You look like you are having such a good time! And YES skinny jeans and boots are really pretty great. I was pretty much against them too, until I actually wore some. They are some of my favorites now!


      November 22, 2013

      But the right ones because some look REALLY hideous on me. lol

      Had a blast, really did and the weather is still better than in Baltimore right now.

    Michelle and Roni together! I would have loved to be at that dinner table and stroll through Hollywood. I hope you enjoyed each and every minute.


      November 22, 2013

      We did. We really did and I’m so grateful this opportunity introduced me to Michelle. She is AMAZING!
