One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Who has 2 Thumbs and is Scared to Death?

This girl!


Tomorrow, bright and early I’ll be headed to The Meadowbrook Athletic Complex for a 2-day CrossFit competition, and I am completely out of my league.

All week the organizers have been releasing the workouts and each one has me scared to death more than the one before.

From Olympic lifts to pull ups to double unders, there is now no doubt in my mind I am not ready for this, but what am I going to do? Back out?


Onward I go into the scary, abyss that is outside my comfort zone.

“When we become comfortable, do you know what happens around us? Absolutely nothing. Each day becomes just like the one before. We do what we have always done, therefore we get what we have always gotten.” –Kip Davis, A Comfortable Situation

Wish me luck…. please.

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.

    Good Luck! I am jealous as I’m working all weekend. Luckily I got a good WOD in last night to bring me thru the weekend with a decent amount of soreness until I get back to it on Monday 6am. Let us know how you do!!! So fun!!
