My day at Fitbloggin

I am so glad I got the opportunity to attend Fitbloggin! I don’t think I would have been able to come out for this if we weren’t living in Maryland icon smile My day at Fitbloggin And I am completely digging the weather! Is Monica loving MD today!?

I love being able to meet bloggers in person!  I feel like I know them, but it’s nice to finally feel like I’m not just reading about their lives under cover. IMG 6383 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

Another added bonuses of conferences? Swag!!! We were totally hooked up (more on that below).IMG 6393 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

In between session there was fruit set out (what did you expect at a conference for healthy living bloggers?). I had an apple and an orange at different points in the day.

One of the sessions I attended was Getting Published and featured a panel of published authors including Caitlin. It was very informative and motivating. I already know the title of my book – now I just have to get on actually writing the rest of it icon smile My day at Fitbloggin IMG 6382 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

I don’t know if lunch was really good or I was really hungry, but I enjoyed it either way.!! I started with mushroom soup topped with pumpernickel croutons.IMG 6379 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

And salad topped with blue cheese, grilled veggies and a veggie sandwich. I had been craving a yummy panini and this hit the spot. IMG 6377 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

At the end of the day Jell-o sponsored a cocktail hour. They had some of their new mousse cups out to sample. I had been wanting to try this.IMG 6390 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

It was good – especially given the nutrition stats.IMG 6389 thumb My day at FitblogginThere was also sushi! Today was so full of good eats!! IMG 6391 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

After the cocktail hour I put on my new New Balance shoes (they’re doubly new)!

These new shoes happened to match my dress too!

Mostly my big head, but some Dress tooIMG 6397 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

And I took a little walk around the water with Jogger’s Life. It was beautiful out today. Beautiful!!!IMG 6399 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

Whole Foods was just around the block so Ben and I stopped there before going home. Dinner from the salad bar was in order as it always is following an evening trip to WF.IMG 6401 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

They make the best pretzel rolls too. I got this the last time I hit up WF and have been thinking about it ever since. IMG 6402 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

Ever heard of Dark Chocolate Almond Butter? No? That’s probably for the best. Take it from this almond butter addict – stay away from this stuff.IMG 6403 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

Actually, it’s good – but not great. I think almond butter topped with some melty chocolate chips is better. Trust me – I’ve tasted my share of both.IMG 6405 thumb My day at Fitbloggin Ummm – could this be the perfect ending to the day?IMG 6406 thumb My day at Fitbloggin

Updated to add: Ben has forced me to drink some rum and juice. And by forced I mean I asked him to make me a drink because I need to unwind from this crazy fun day!!

Everyone I met at Fitbloggin was super cute in person and I’m really glad I got the chance to say “hi”. If for some reason we missed each other feel free to email me anytime icon smile My day at Fitbloggin Hope you all had fun too!

If you didn’t attend the conference I took a ton of notes and I’ll be recapping some of the great information tomorrow! Stay tuned, but for tonight I’m going to finish my large cocktail and relax.

    I loved reading your tweets from fitbloggin. I feel like there’s so much to learn! It sounds like a good time.
    I’ve tried that almond butter, and it was just “meh”. Justin’s has a new chocolate almond butter that blows that one away and is actually vegan,

    That AB looks fricking amaaazing. From the partially visible label, it looks much healthier than nutella! I’ve been trying to find a less sugary substitute.

    i’m so jealous that you went! i’ve GOT to go next year. the eats looked amazing. i was wondering how that jello was, so thanks for the review. and that pretzel roll looked amazing. they would be serious trouble for me.
    thanks for sharing!
