How to be a Fit Twit in 6 months...
I was fortunate enough to be chosen to give one of the Keynote Ignite talk at FitBloggin this year. I really wanted to go to FitBloggin, but I really had no idea how to financially make this happen. My friend Caroline from My Fascinating Life told me about this opportunity to speak at FitBloggin and get a free registration. At first I thought I would tell my story...then I realized that I don't really like talking about how I got here. I am not a victim anymore and I don't want to continue to rehash something that happened almost 8 years ago. I am also not at my "after" so I didn't want to do that. I figured that since I found success on twitter, I could talk about that.
To be honest, I was hoping to be more "Fit" than "Twit" (my speech is How to be a Fit Twit) but that's okay. I will say that after seeing the video, I know that it is time to spend more time on the Fit than the Twit though. I still have to work on the eating part. I also need to work on putting myself up rather than down. I am surprised I only said one negative thing about myself, but I need to stop saying anything! GRRR!!!
Here's my speech!
All day long, before this speech, I was nervous. Worried... What if I mess up?? But then I realized that everyone in that room was rooting for me! Everyone there wanted me to be the best me I could be! I got some of the sweetest tweets that day! I was told I have a cheering section table by Badass Fitness, the Fit Approach Sweat Pink girls told me that they knew I would be awesome, and I felt so loved from all of my buddies... Peace, Love, Low Carb, Gingermantra, Restoring Rachel, Melissa is Running It, My Fascinating Life, It's all about the journey, Sneakers and Fingerpaints, Family Fitness Food, Call Me Trouble and many others.
There are many other awesome things that happened at FitBloggin, but I am only going to share a little at a time. It may be because I want to stretch out the wonderful memories for as long as possible.
Have you ever given a speech and been so nervous that the time flew by? That is what happened to me!
