5 things I learned at Blend

Healthy living bloggers like to drink too.

We all don’t love working out.

Nor do we all like waking up early, but we do enjoy nature. No one appeared bothered by dirt.

You will make friends.

5 things I’ve learned about myself at Blend

I make friends easily because I talk a lot and I’m not shy. As I get older (yes!), I’ve become more confident. Although, I was still overwhelmed when I saw big name bloggers.

I don’t vacation on vacation. I hardly slept and crashed on Monday.

I still hate running but I’ll do it. I ran yesterday when I did GPP’s Denizen.

I can trust myself with food. I ate copious amounts of seafood (salmon mostly), salads, and warm, hearty meatballs.

…and somehow this always happens, but I lose weight on vacation or at least, I have a better body image because I don’t actually weigh myself so I don’t know if I actually lost weight.

I made this side-by-side to show the Quest rep, Clark. One of the coolest things is that he is a transformation story too and so are a ton of other people – healthy living for the win!

6 reasons this week was awesome

The entirety of season 2 of “Orange is the New Black” is on.

Working doesn’t deter me from happy hour and [nitrogen] ice cream from a la minute.

A too sweet Hawaiian Cadillac marg because my bartender didn’t make it.

Avocado ice cream still not as good as The Hop

There’s a hydration station at work.

I get to work with this crazy dude and a lot of fun people this summer.

Work party with my work mom! šŸ™‚

I think I have a date. I never know if that’s what to call it. Maybe it’s just a hang out.

5 quotes

“You’re too good for him.” This is true. Let’s be real.

“You workout enough for 15 people.” …when I was hesitant about eating some ice cream.

I still don’t know…

So I’ll just continue being great.

6 Life Lessons Learned at Blend

5 Things I Learned at #blend2014

#Blend2014: Refreshing

I am re-obsessed with sweet potatoes. This one is from Ari’s Menu.

One of my favorite things in the whole wide world: mac & cheese. Foodie Misadventures’ taco macaroni & cheese makes it even better.

I had this super sweet Hawaiian Cadillac marg on Tuesday because my bartender wasn’t working yet so this other guy made it for us. I should try to make my own, like this Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita.

  1. Orange is the New Black!! I’m addicted now. I blame the blends talking about going home and binge-watching it. šŸ˜‰

    I get what you mean about being okay around food. I love being able to eat meatballs when I want and salads when I want. It’s all about listening to your body, right? I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who wanted to eat meatballs by the way..thanks for splitting them with me! ā¤

  2. I trust your judgement implicitly, so I’m going to have to start Orange is the New Black. I need to feel the gaping hole left by House of Cards! šŸ˜‰

    So glad we got to hang a little more at Blend. Hope to see you again soon!

    • I’ll see you next year! Enjoy Atlanta for me! šŸ™‚

      I finished Orange is the New Black and need a new show to watch. I have to rewatch House of Cards because I was half-watching it and it just requires much more attention than I have.
