Blogfest Day 1

Hello all! For those of you who don’t know or aren’t following me on Twitter or Instagram (what are you waiting for!) last weekend I attended blogfest hosted by sweat pink and idea world. I had the most fantastic time! So I figured I’d share with you some of my experiences over the next few posts.

Blogfest, Idea World, Sweatpink Fitness convention

Blogfest- Ideaworld, Sweatpink - Fitness conventionThe first morning our breakfast was provided by general mills.  It was delicious. Yogurt, granola and all the toppings you want! Not to mention the coffee, always need my coffee!

After our first lecture we headed down to idea world opening ceremonies.  There a bunch of awards were presented to fitness professionals along with motivational speeches from Jack Canfield and Amy Van Dyken-Rouen.  The most memorable quote for me came from Jack.  He stated “You have to be uncomfortable to get what you want in life.”  I try to do as many things I can out of my comfort zone because I believe that this how you grow in life and get to where you want to be.  If you are constantly living within your comfort zone you are doing the same things over and over again and aren’t able to grow as a person.  So remember to get yourself out of your comfort zone every now and again! Blogfest- Ideaworld, Sweatpink - Fitness convention

The first day Pure Protein provided us with a delightful salad bar, with a bunch of delicious toppings.  I chose chicken, carrots, cucumber, avocado, and jicama.  I had never tried jicama before and was pleasantly surprised by the taste and delicious crunch!Blogfest- Ideaworld, Sweatpink - Fitness conventionCan’t forget all the snacks! Siege’s provided yogurt and Truitt family foods provided delicious crackers and Tru hummus.  The ultimate healthy living bloggers snack breaks for sure!

I was so incredibly motivated after leaving day one of blogfest, I did’t think I could get anymore motivated after that, but day 2, which I will be sharing tomorrow is equally as awesome!

How is everyone’s week going?
