Happy MORNING everyone!! When you go from gaining 3 hours of time to losing 3 hours of time with traveling, you can be a bit sleep deprived.
Day one of BlogFest was awesome & day 2 started off with a bang! I made my way to 7am boot camp, with grapes in hand.
I absolutely didn’t mind walking in the morning to the convention center. Morning’s are my favorite; especially with this view of the sunrise.
They are adorable together & they totally kicked our butts.
I really loved getting to know Caroline! She is such a sweetheart, lives in BOSTON!, & we had so many similarities. Pumped to hopefully hang out with her again soon!
Next up was miss Cassey Ho of Blogilates!
She spoke to us on her background story of making her brand her business. She’s always full of contagious energy.
Afterwards I grabbed a quick Starbucks break with miss Katie – who I’m glad I got to finally meet!
With an iced coffee came chia oats! My usual go to breakfast when traveling. I just soak oats & chia seeds with cinnamon, stevia, & liquid eggs whites (from a carton) for extra protein, over night! In the morning I’ve got thick oatmeal (and cold!) waiting for me.
And when these palm trees are always waiting for you outside – how can you ever want to leave?? Next up was a lunch break so my friends HumanX by Harbinger & I teamed up for a fun boot camp meet up a local park!
You’ll see my Pittsburgh peeps in the above picture – so great to finally meet them once I got to Cali! How funny. Such a fun group & they WORKED IT OUT in the warm sun!
My girl Tasha getting it DONE! woo!
HumanX was an awesome support & literally sent out so much equipment for everyone to utilize outdoors like their Ab X mat, Resistance Bands, & Beaded Jump Ropes (worked well in the grass!).
I use this equipment outdoors all of the time at home! It’s so easy to take with you or use for my outdoor boot camps.
We used the AbX mats for slow release sit ups (leg straight, lower up & down slowly) and I love how it supports the natural movement of your spine & also we did toe touches. Resistance Bands were used for lunge & press, rear pulls, & partner moves like torso twists & Squat & Row. The Jump ropes were used for just that – jumping rope!
We had an awesome photographer take pics that day so here is a recap in pictures!
My girl @LadyBobie came out for boot camp and I was so pumped to meet her!
Also loved that my Pittsburgh lady showed up with her boyfriend!
Always have to bring it in for a cheer.
Bummed you missed the boot camp? Noooo worries! My friends at HumanX are offering a lucky reader a chance to win a boot camp Prize Pack loaded with the equipment that we used at the boot camp! (Details below).
My friends at Under Armour Women sent some awesome headbands (these mini braided ones are truly my favorite – they stay on my head and I love the colors!) & water bottles for everyone – they never cease to amaze me with their support. Thank you, UA!
Speaking of Under Armour, once we got everything packed up from boot camp, I made my way back to the Convention center where my UA Sisters just so happen to all be in the same hallway! I finally got to meet the amazing Shauna Harrison!! She is super down to earth & I was excited that Under Armour Women were hosting the next Tweet Break.
The tweet break consisted of sharing the new stories of the #IWILLWHATIWANT Campaign. If you’re looking to get pumped up & inspired, you’ve got to check out the website!
I am so glad they were able to come & share the message because the bloggers now got to see why this brand is truly inspiring people. It was full of stories & a totally relatable experience for everyone.
Soon after, it was time for the BlogFest Lightning Rounds that consisted of myself & 6 other inspiring bloggers speaking about their stories. The cool & also crazy thing about lightning rounds is that your slide auto advance every 15 seconds – thank goodness I talk fast.
I spoke about BE TRUE TO YOU and how important it is, especially in the blog world. Readers & bloggers are drawn to people who are authentic.
Every one of the other speakers was super motivating & I’m honored to have spoken next to them!
The night finished with a Sweat Pink social (Katie & Pavement Runner pictured above!) so we all got a chance to chat some more! I couldn’t believe the amazing response to my chat about my recent Be True To You workshop & how Heather & I want to take the BODYpeace movement into schools. Everyone was SO supportive – it’s amazing to be surround by people like that. Thank you all!
