Finding My Groove

I have so much to offload I don’t know where to start or IF I’ll start. I feel like crap, my throat is sore, and I’m coming off the high of being surrounded by so many awesome people for a week in beautiful Denver.

But I hit the ground running today, waking up early to workout and see my friends at the gym. Then I walked with both boys while dragging them in the wagon.

We dropped off Evan to pre-school and then used the wagon to go grocery shopping.

Sticking to the perimeter we pretty much just restocked our produce, which was well overdo with Dad handling the grocery shopping while I was away.

The rest of the day was playing catch-up with the inbox and such. You’d think the stress of the conference would be over but there’s still a lot of loose ends to tidy up.

Speaking of the conference, I figured I’d end with some of my favorite photos so far. Carrie is still working on the last 2 days of the event.

This was the first year I actually participated in the workouts. It was so fun!

I wish I had more in me tonight but I’m wiped. I’ve got to go to bed.

That said, I’m welcoming the return of my journal. I missed it. :)

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.

    Glad you’re back – missed my daily health and fitness read.

      Thanks! I missed posting!

    I couldn’t open the grapefruit recipe link :(

    Love the wagon full of produce! We’re heading to the farmer’s market today, for the first time of the summer, and I’ve already got my reusable bags laid out and ready to go :)


      July 1, 2015

      I need to up my farmer’s market visits this summer!!

    I adore grapefruit, that looks really good! Did you peel off the inside membranes too, or just the outside peel?


      July 1, 2015

      Oops, I was trying to comment on greenlightbites. :)


      July 1, 2015

      It’s all good. Yes I left the membrane! All I did was peel.

    Hi Roni, the grapefruit breakfast link did not work for me. I was able to find it by starting at for anyone else looking for it before Roni is able to fix it!


      July 1, 2015

      Thanks! All fixed but the emails when out with the broken links. :(

    I have never been on your site before, so this is my first time and after reading this post I really learned from you and see that you truly are an inspiration to all who are trying to lose weight and get in shape. I will have to revisit again soon to see what else you have in store :)


    July 1, 2015

    I said this like five times while we were there, and I’m likely bordering on stalking now, but thank you SO much for creating this conference. I’ve never been to anything like this before, and it was a great first experience. Every single person was welcoming and lovely, and there was a perfect mixture of learning, exercise, food, and community. Can’t wait to start following your blog more consistently. Thank you!

    Roni, you look gorgeous! This looks like so much fun. I really, really, really hope you bring FitBloggin to the Midwest someday!


    July 2, 2015

    Roni, I absolutely loved meeting you at Fitbloggin! I’m so glad that you’re stepping back to do other things, and I wanted you to know that so many people have been blessed by your blog and your story. Thanks for being so honest and real. :)
