I decided that I wasnâ€™t too sick to go to the gym, so I packed up my swim gear and put on my running clothes. I started off by banging out 2.8 miles outside in 28 minutes. I park my car at the gym and then run around the neighborhoods â€“ I hate running on the dreadmill!
But when I got back to my car, I was just too tired to swim. The idea of cold water wasnâ€™t very appealing, and my throat hurt again. So, I guess Iâ€™m not totally better yet!
Here are my eats for the afternoonâ€¦
Pumpkin yogurt and 1 serving of granola around 3 PM:
And a few handful of Cheerios right before I ran:
Dinner was simple, yet tasty!
The star was a Barney Butter and Hot Pepper Raspberry jam sandwich:
Plus, leftover veggie soup and an orange.
OK, OK â€“ What you guys have been waiting for! 🙂
Last August, a group of bloggers and myself got together and decided to organize a blogger/reader conference. Kath, Jenna, Tina, Meghann, Heather, and I worked with Stonyfield Farm, Foodbuzz, and Zesty Cook to put together a three-day summit for 125 people.
Hereâ€™s my recaps of the Healthy Living Summit 2009 events:
- Friday Events â€“ Part I, Part II (Cocktail Party)
- Saturday Events â€“ Part I, Part II, Part III
- Sunday Events â€“ Part I, Part II
It was a really fun way to meet a lot of the people Iâ€™ve been interacting with through the blogs!
The moment the Summit was over, the planning committee started to exchange e-mails about the next event.
The Healthy Living Summit 2010 will be:
- BIGGER! We sold out in 25 minutes last year so weâ€™re increasing the number of tickets from 125 to around 200 or so.
- BETTER! Itâ€™s going to be even more interactive and fun. Plus, donâ€™t you worry â€“ youâ€™ll be hooking everyone up with sweet swag bags again!
And will *probably* take place in early August in Chicago. It will not be the same weekend as BlogHer.
We are securing sponsorship, which is why we donâ€™t know the exact date or location. But this is 95% certain. We wanted to let everyone know so (if youâ€™re interested in joining us!) you can make plans.
If youâ€™ve never been to a blogging event like this, donâ€™t be shy! Everyone was really nice at the Summit, and I think everyone had a great time meeting new friends.
Hope to see you there! 🙂 🙂
