Hey guys! It’s been such a whirlwind weekend at Fitbloggin’! I’ve had a blast and I can’t believe it’s over already. Things didn’t go exactly as planned, because my sinus infection/virus or whatever I’ve been dealing with lately came back with a vengeance after flying into Baltimore. I haven’t felt very good since I got here, but I’ve definitely made the best of it. How can you not have fun when you have this to stare at?
So let’s start at the beginning shall we? The first fabulous foodie I met up with was Gelareh from Nutritious Foodie. We were both in the same shuttle to the hotel, and we were both starving to death so we hit up Whole Foods (where else?!) for a salad!
I’m not exactly sure what all I got, but I know there were some mixed greens, marinated veggies, chickpea salad, roasted butternut squash and wheat berries. I felt so much better afterwards. Traveling works up an appetite!
After eating we registered, got all our swag, and checked into our rooms. It was all so fabulous! The room was pretty swank.
And the swag (read: free stuff) was out of control!
We got free shoes and socks from New Balance, an amazing workout shirt from Thriv, an adorable oatmeal bowl and so much more! I was definitely impressed with the loot! But I couldn’t stand around and enjoy it for too long, because I had to get ready for the cocktail party!
I “borrowed” this pic from the “epic” Caitlin, who is every bit as awesome as she seems on her blog.
After the cocktail party we headed out to find some food and drink at Ryleigh’s Oyster where some seriously hilarious shenanigans occurred. Check out Ashley’s blog for the proof.
As far as food goes, I had a couple of brews and a caesar salad.
So delicious. Unfortunately by this time I was feeling pretty dang awful. Blech. So shortly afterward I headed home and hit the hay.
And that concludes the first day of my Fitbloggin’ adventure. I’m so glad that I went, it was great to be able to put faces to the names of the blogs I read and also to discover new bloggers that totally rock. I’ll be back sometime in the future with day two!
