#FHBC12

Hey friends! Happy WEEKEND to you :)

I am still in Denver enjoying the Fitness & Health Bloggers’ Conference, thanks to FitFluential, GotChocolateMilk, and #FHBC12!

I’ll get to a recap in a moment, but first, let’s rewind a bit.

So, I had the flu for 2 days beforehand. UGH. WHY did this happen?!

I never get sick, I just don’t. However, when I don’t get enough sleep, and with the activity and work I do, my immune system can get compromised. And that is exactly what happened.

Some may only need 7 hours of sleep, but I just can not function right if I have less than 8, and with a few days in a row with less than 8 + my IronMan training, you can only imagine what happened…..

Being sick is the worst. Traveling while being sick might be even worse. Oh, and trying to be yourself and attempting normal workouts, lots of conversation, and being on your best behavior is even harder when you don’t feel well. :(

However, my sister (I am staying with her in Denver) did take good care of me, so I awoke yesterday feeling a lot better.

{half a smile. Yes, I felt like crap.}

*********

On Friday morning I arrived right when breakfast by Attune was ending, and the blog workshops were starting! It was all useful and helpful information, that I promise will be typed up at a later date, when I feel better. 😉

Some pics from the day at FHBC12# :

{At the trade show. Gotta love Love Grown Foods!}

{The amazing fitness center. I could live there…… 😉 }

{My awesome lunch that my sister made and packed for me. Lentil-bell pepper-enchiladas + apple + grapes. Am I lucky or what?!}

{Cooking demonstration result. Such a cool presentation!}

We also had some great academic presentations in the afternoon, that I am going to devote a post to for each next week, but I SO enjoyed them!

I am a major nerd and totally love hearing all the new research and discoveries found in exercise physiology, lifestyle, weight management, and healthy living. It just gets me SO excited!

{Some were somewhat bored during the presentations, but I was completely enamored. This shows you how much of a geek I am. Oh well! Hehe}

More to come, but I want to hang out with my sister and her kiddos.

p.s. YES, I finally got a smartphone. My husband got me the new iPhone (sweetheart!!!!), and thus I could be ‘cool’ too and tweet and instagram (find me @FitnessPerks) while living it up at FHBC12#. Lucky girl, no?!

Have a GREAT weekend!

What is something YOU are geeky about?? What new-to-YOU foods have YOU tried?? What are YOU up to this weekend??
