The presentation at Pennsylvania College of Technology went so well! I am relieved and excited. Lots of women â€“ and men â€“ turned up, and people were talkative.
Rewind a bitâ€¦
I took a nap this afternoon and then went in search of food. So many people recommended Wegmanâ€™s hot and cold bar, so I decided to give it a shot.
The bar was kind of like Whole Foodsâ€™, just less vegetarian-friendly. There was only one type of tofu and it was laden in cream and just didnâ€™t look like it would sit well in my nervous tummy. It did look delicious, though! 🙂
There were other good options!
I got brown rice, roasted sweet potatoes, and two types of stir-fry veggies.
Plus, a bunch of fresh fruit.
After dinner, it was time for me to head over to PCT campus. Iâ€™m not going to lie; speaking engagements still make me a little scared. I wonder if Iâ€™ll ever get over it? Probably not. 🙂
PCT campus was so beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised; for some reason, I thought it was going to be very utilitarianâ€¦ but the architecture was interesting and colorful. And I love how the trees look â€“ Spring is here!
My presentation was in the Campus Centerâ€™s main presentation room.
One of the really neat things the universities I have been speaking at do to advertise the events are post-its in the bathrooms! I went to use the bathroom before my presentation and found a bunch of notes advertising the event and the site.
The presentation went well. About 125 people attended! Iâ€™m trying to expand my presentation to talk about issues such as photoshopping, marketing, and other issues surrounding body image. I also talk about ways to find your Healthy Ideal, which of course looks different for different people.
I was super excited to meet readers Hannah and Sarah after the event! When readers of HTP come to my event, I feel so happyâ€¦ itâ€™s like I have friends in the audience.
Nowâ€¦ Iâ€™m back in my hotel room, and I cannot wait to relax in my giant Jacuzzi with a cup of chamomile tea and a free cookie from the hotel lobby.
What a day! I feel like I did so much. :) Did you have a busy day, too? Hope it was a good one!
