Here’s my final Fitbloggin’ post! I had such a great time in Portland this past weekend, and it was so fun recapping my experience for you guys! The second part of Saturday started with a session called “Tricks for Snacking on the Go,” which was hosted by SOYJOY with special guest Tenley Molzahn from the Bachelor. Do you remember her from Jake’s season? It was so cool meeting Tenley in person. She was sweet and…

Have I mentioned how much I love Fitbloggin’? Oh, yea, I have. Best.Conference.Ever. Lunch The second part of Friday started with lunch, which was provided by the hotel/Fitbloggin’. Once again, I was happy to see so many healthy options, including fresh veggies, pickled veggies, fruit salad, sliced turkey and chicken, smoked salmon, balsamic-marinated Portobello mushrooms, and carrot-ginger soup. After two back-to-back workouts that morning, I was psyched to eat! Snack After lunch, a group of…

Good morning! Fitbloggin’ is off to a great start! I’m having an awesome time (best conference ever), and, I must say, I’m really loving this new tank from Reebok. This year’s Fitbloggin’ attendees received a whole bunch of sweet swag from Reebok (one of the event’s sponsors), including new Nanos, duffle bags, and tank tops, including the “who made the rules” one I am wearing. Reebok was really good to us! Breakfast I woke up…

Fitbloggin’ hasn’t even started yet, but I’m already having a fabulous time in Portland! Once my flight landed in Portland this morning, I hopped on a shuttle to my hotel for the next few nights. The Nines is a gorgeous hotel in the heart of downtown, and it’s the location for the Fitbloggin’ conference. I love its modern, elegant décor. Check out my room! So pretty! Lunch Once I got settled in my room, I…

Good morning! I’m off to the airport bright and early this morning to catch a flight to Portland, Oregon for Fitbloggin’. I am attending the conference on behalf of Reebok and Fitfluential, and I am super excited about it! Fitbloggin’ is my favorite fitness/blogger conference, and I always have so much fun at it! If you’re wondering what Fitbloggin’ is all about, feel free to check out my previous posts. I attended both Fitbloggin’ 11…

Hooray for trampoline workouts! I look sort of scared in the photo below, but, I assure you, I had a blast! You can see me jumping in the first few seconds of this video! Trampoline workouts are wicked fun. Lindsay and Jill agreed! Lindsay and I teamed up for a partner workout, so while one of us used the trampoline, the other did exercises on the floor and then we’d switch. It was a lot of…

Random fun fact: Monica and I are freaks when it comes to PopChips and props. Remember last year’s pic? Well, we were a tad more enthusiastic this year! Haha! Hey, we like silly props and have a lot of fun together. Isn’t that all that really matters? As you can see, I’m having a blast at Fitbloggin’! Lunch After a sweaty WOD and some #fitmixerfun, it was time for lunch. On the menu: salad with…

Hello! I’m having a blast at Fitbloggin’! My morning started bright and early with a 4-mile run along the water with Monica and Lindsay. The inner harbor was gorgeous at this hour of the day. After our run, Lindsay and I said goodbye to Monica and then got ourselves all set up to sample the fitmixer aminos. A HUGE thank you to Jill and Lauren for helping us with the sampling this morning! Fitmixer fun…

I’m here! I’m at Fitbloggin’! Yay! I’m so psyched to be here””and a BIG thank you to fitmixer who sponsored me! I’m excited to learn, laugh, and sweat! I honestly love this conference. The vibe is super positive and you can tell everyone is excited to connect with and learn from one another. Two thumbs up for Fitbloggin’! Once I checked into my hotel room, I headed out in search of food. I had dinner…

Fun workout today! 😎 Murphy and I went for a 2-mile run/walk around the neighborhood. We’re both training for races (Run to Remember for me; Pug 5K for him) so we did our training run together. Running buddies rule! Murphy felt strong for the entire two miles”” he even did a few sprints at the end– but he plopped down on the porch as soon as we got home. He was exhausted! Two miles is…

And just like that Fitbloggin’ 11 is all over. The two-day conference totally flew by, but I enjoyed every. single. moment of it. What I didn’t enjoy, however, was saying goodbye to my blog buddies!! Wah. It was actually sort of sad. I had such a good time with them, I didn’t want to leave Fitbloggin’! After running and breakfast, I attended the most wonderful session about intuitive eating: The Ditch The Diet: Eat Intuitively panel,…

This is how I felt waking up at 5:45 to run this morning: Thankfully, my running buddies were a lot more motivated. Monica, Theodora, and I ran 6 miles along the waterfront. The weather and scenery were absolutely gorgeous, so within minutes, I was so glad that I didn’t skip our run together. You never regret a workout! Once we finished, Theodora and I took a pit-stop at Starbucks for iced coffees. I swear, the…

Hooray for blog conferences! The Sears Social kicked off the evening. The event was a chance to mix and mingle with other bloggers and enjoy a cocktail and some passed apps. Roommate love: Beth, Theodora, and Courtney. Blogger love: Theodora, Gabriela, and Gracie. Mascara love! Tina X 2! Tina is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog! Our fearless leader: Roni! I still can’t believe she planned this whole conference and…

Yep, I’m definitely having a good time at Fitbloggin!! Of course, I’m taking advantage of the sessions and learning a lot, but, really, I love coming to conferences to hang out with my blog buddies! This morning, I took an early flight from Boston to Baltimore and totally passed out on the flight. So, when I arrived at BWI, I was cranky, exhausted, and a little bit disorientated. Luckily, I found some iced coffee and…

Is that grass that I see in our front yard!?! Woah. After the crazy winter we had here, I never thought I’d see the day. The snow is really starting to melt here in Boston. I love seeing signs of spring! 😎 I also love that the dirty, gray snow is just about gone. It’s so ugly to look at! Workout After breakfast, I headed to the yoga studio for a 75-minute Vinyasa class. It was…
