Yoga, Mountains, Food, & Deodorant

Yup. Most random blog post title ever. But believe me — all of these things are absolutely relevant, and it’s been less than 24-hours into the Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference! Things have already been a whirlwind of education, activity, and excitement! I’ll try to keep this succinct, but be forewarned that Colorado is kind of beautiful. So, you know. I’ve been taking a lot of pictures.


You probably understand why. 🙂

So after yesterday’s opening keynote speech, the sessions included talks on working with companies & PR firms as a blogger, as well as hearing from two bloggers that have successfully parlayed their blogs into books! Both very interesting, and very educational. In the true spirit of this being a fitness & health bloggers’ conference though, things were broken up with a sweet little fitness break:



And after the sessions the whole group walked over to Whole Foods Boulder for a special dinner they prepared just for us!


Heather, Anne, and Theodora were more than happy to pose for pics on the way. 🙂


And they served up quite the feast! Since so many of the conference attendees have special dietary needs and preferences, the meal was completely vegan — and totally delicious!

Strawberry Gazpacho Shooters

Tofu Spring Rolls wrapped in Bok Choi

Cucumber-wrapped Salads

Roasted sweet potatoes and cheese-less grilled pizzas

And for dessert…

Some kind of cashew cream-lemon-mousse-something-DELICIOUSNESS.

After our meal we popped inside the Whole Foods building to pick up some libations…


And showcase Theodora’s inappropriate love for kombucha.


Don’t worry folks. Most of the time she looks much more like this:



Then it was back to the hotel for the opening night cocktail party! I’ll give you one guess who the sponsor was.


Yup! Degree Women deodorant — see? It all comes full-circle, hahaha. Don’t worry, I didn’t walk out of there with those deodorants. Not all of them anyway… kekeke.


Guess they didn’t get the memo about what kind of conference this is, hahaha! Don’t worry, I stuck to the fruit plate:


And about a quarter of this local beer (too hoppy for me!)


Before I totally passed out at around 10 PM. In my defense, I’d been up since 6:30, and it was midnight on the east coast! Besides, my alarm was set super early for…


7 AM yoga taught by Kia,


Concierge lounge breakfast (thanks again, Papa!) with LOX! Mmmm.


And an early morning photoshoot… I can’t help it! It’s just so beautiful here!


I hope everyone else’s weekend is going as well! Now it’s time for me to sign off so I can actually pay attention to this next session on social media, which we already know is something I am super interested in!


  1. Ahhh! You look soo cute 🙂

  2. They shut down whole foods for you? That is amazinggg. Glad you’re having a great time!

    • Hahaha, well, it wasn’t the entire store shut down! But they did block off the awesome patio just for li’l ol’ us, which was awesome. I can’t wait until they start renovating the WF near me — I’m getting so jealous of these AWESOME new stores. This one had a GELLATO BAR!

  3. Omigosh! It is SO stunning there. I am totally jealous.

    The vegan meal looks so good – the shooters look delicious. I need to get myself hooked up for one of these conferences!

  4. That’ picture with you and the mountains is fantastic! I love Colorado!

  5. Jen Robinsonsays:

    Mmmm SO wish I could have partaken in that dinner!! YUM!

    • I kept thinking of you as we were chowing down. It was really very impressive, and it was one of those things where I had snarfed down all the food before I even stopped to realize that it was all vegan!

  6. It was great meeting you this weekend. Love the pictures!

  7. Presh 🙂 That’s one of my favorite deodorants!
