I’m going to #fitbloggin and I consider this to be a continuation of life’s latest ironies. After all, I’m not really fit and I’m not really a blogger. So I giggle, and I’m struck, once again, how the ironies pile up.
I don’t cook, yet most people come to my non-blog searching for a recipe. I ended up in the hospital due to chronic dehydration, but people ask me about being healthy. I’m growing herbs, but I don’t know what to do with them. I don’t know how to ride a bike, but I just bought one. You get the idea, right?
So why am I going to #fitbloggin? The people! I’ve been so blessed, loved and supported by this unexpectedly fabulous online community.
I. LOVE. MY. TRIBE.
And I am so looking forward to meeting them in person! I have a funny suspicion that it will be like we’ve all been friends forever – yes – the irony continues…
So here’s just a tip of the iceberg of my I’m-So-Giddy-I-Get-To-Meet-These-Tweeps list!
Susan Ito :: @foodiemcbody :: Well, let me just say I adore her! I love her humanness – I love her enthusiasm – I love her taste in music *winks* – I love her tears – and I gobble up every word that she writes. She takes me with her every time….
Deb Roby :: @debroby :: Deb is amazing! She is absolutely a trusted source for REAL information about exercise and movement. And, she’s amazing in the kitchen, so she’s a perfect go-to with all sorts of tips and tricks.
Katie Heddleston :: @KatieHeddleston :: Ms. Katie humors me with smart and kind support in the kitchen – she answers all my questions and is quite patient, even though I’m quite hopeless with a knife and a mixer.
Carla Birnberg :: @mizfitonline :: What can I say? She’s uber cool and doesn’t even know it. She celebrates imperfection. She giggles often. And I think she might cuss every once in a while **I hope that’s not a secret**.
This certainly isn’t everyone – there’s @yumyucky, @leavingfatville, @tryn2bfit, @melgetsfit, @middleagedjock, @tjsteskitchen – I am so excited to meet you all and I wish I had time to list everyone! But for now… I have to pack (I only decided to come yesterday, so I’m a BIT behind)!
Please find me at #fitbloggin! I have wildly curly hair and very smart glasses 😉
So what are you looking forward to this weekend?
