FitBloggin Photos Part 1 - some of my fave peeps

Oy vey am I tired. When I got home I unpacked (quickly), packed my bag for site, laid out my clothes and went to bed by 10pm.

Woke up at 2am in a panic because I forgot to set my alarm. Set the alarm then got up at 3:30am and off to the airport again by 4am. 

Took this photo this morning just before we landed, I do work in the middle of nowhere but it sure is pretty. 

Now I have some vanilla bourbon herbal tea and let me share my FitBloggin photos. 

I did discover at this event that I'm a terrible blogger. I'm terrible at documenting things and posting photos. 

Let me start with the amazing Roni Noone who created and executed this amazing event. 

Don't mind my bangs, the room was really warm as this was at the reception on the 2nd night and it was a great turn out. 

The entire FitBloggin crew, these are amazing people - funny, inspiring and incredibly kind and friendly. 

I met some of my blogger idols

I walked right up to this gorgeous woman on the very first day and told her she was my WW idol, I have loved Sheryl's blog and I'm so attached to her writing because I see her as my "after". We're the same height (she's wearing fabulous heels) and her start weight is super similar to mine. I see her success and know I can do it too. She is a very popular person and so incredibly kind and nice. 

The one the only Jack S*ht and my very first FitBloggin friend Amy. Jack was so kind to answer our questions about writing such a popular blog and his Ignite Fitness presentation was incredible. The finale was mentos in coke and the volcano was worth it. Amy was a first time FitBlogger too and it was so nice to have a friend to navigate this conference with. 

I sometimes feel like I stalk this wonderful woman on Twitter. I was really looking forward to meeting Robby and I love her blog FatgirlvsWorld. I totally relate to being a fat kid since a young age but her spirit is fierce and I so admire that. Not to mention her generosity she's giving away the Kitchen Aid mixer she won at FitBloggin, go to her blog for details. 

I was on a mission to find this amazing woman. I have been honoured to have her comment on my blog and I feel so blessed when she does. This is the amazing MizFit. I absolutely adore her message of yet your freak flag fly. When we taking this picture I said that and got this very special pose. I did originally find her in the bathroom and didn't even think twice about giving her a hug. 

Alright my friends more pictures to come but I now need sleep and drink my lukewarm tea. I met so many amazing people that I didn't get pictures of but these people's stories will stay with me and I can't wait to see them in Portland in 2013.

You're not a terrible blogger! You blog for you, in the way you need, however best suits you. That's what it's all about in the end. Everything else is just extra.

I am definitely coming down from the high that was FitBloggin but it is so great to read everyone's recaps and am really excited about being connected. I really did feel pretty on my own in my journey...and now I'm not. And that's pretty amazing.

Your photos rock!

I'm so envious of you, but also thrilled you had this experience and hope you can use it to fuel your motivation until next year's event!

Enjoyed meeting you at Fitbloggin. Always great to have a face to put with a twittah avatar.
