Shot-O'Clock? Fitbloggin recap..sort of

Before reading the post below, please remember this is MY personal experience at the conference, no one else's.

So there was a little conference last weekend in Baltimore, Maryland.
You may have heard of it on here...or on one of the other 300 blogs you read.
It was called FitBloggin'

We spent our weekend working out:

 Crossfit with Reebok
 Jumpsport Fitness-Rebounding Class

and eating:
M&S Grill's Cobb Salad sans bleu cheese/bleu cheese dressing

There were amazing seminars about SEO, turning your blog into an article, Youtube,etc.

To be 100% honest, I only sat in on one session and that was Kelly Olexa's. 
Not that the other ones didn't interest me, but I was given the opportunity to attend the Natural Products Expo (east) on Friday thanks to my friend Jill Hanner and I missed the only speakers I planned on listening to.
Which was fine by me because I had a BLAST at the expo.

 Kayla Harrison, Olympic gold medalist in Judo. She asked if I wanted to hold the medal...I freaked out and said no, which I later regretted. We all know I am not getting a gold medal anytime soon.

Rohan Marley and I...he is a sweetheart, btw.

Oh and at night, I got wiiiild.
There was a lot of this:
 (This was taken on Thursday, by Saturday our bartender friend..who I called Jersey, still not sure why, had to open a new bottle)

I'm not sure if it was the lack of responsibility I knew I had or if I was just enjoying my time with people I rarely see/just met but I let my hair down...literally...all weekend.

Life is about balance. 
We've discussed that here several times.
I would stay out and party until 12-1am then get up at 7 and participate in the workouts.
Nothing like a good sweat session to kick the booze from your system.

Do I encourage raging three nights in a row?
Absolutely not.
Did I have the time of my life doing it?
You betcha.

All in all Fitbloggin' was a success. I learned more about myself then I did about my blog, which in the end is most important. 

If you want REAL recaps from the conference I suggest you  go here

Sounds like you had a blast! Sometimes you need to just let your hair down and go wild - it's good for the soul :)

jessielovestorun said...

Glad you let your hair down & had such a great time!! Everyone deserves a night, or few out with drinks :).. Heck I had 10 days of drinking everynight while we were on vacation lol

Stephanie Jarrett said...

It's all about the 80/20 Lifestyle. You're a role model Carlyn!

Christy said...

haha I love this post! That cinnamon whisky is so good!

Patty said...

I'm gald we did get to meet briefly before Zumba. FitBloggin is what you make it. There is no one way, that's the best part. And its true why not stay out with friends you only see once a year! I agree 100%! Glad you went to the Natural Products Expo (east), I didn't hear about it until much later in the weekend. said...

so jealous you got to see kelly - but so glad that you had a good time regardless!!!

Colleen said...

I'm so jealous of your experience and you're right life is all about balance! Letting your hair down and going a little wild sometimes is healthy! Good for you for having such a great time!

PavementRunner said...

Dang girl. LOL.

Wait, there isn't an Olympic category for AWESOMENESS?

Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie said...

Omg I would have wanted to touch that medal so bad! I'm glad you got to let your hair down and have fun!!

Miz said...

how did I miss the shots? :)

Sweat Is My Sanity said...

What? :) The sessions were my favorite part. I guess everyone gets something different out of blog conferences, after the one I went to in Nashville, I was disappointed. It was SO fun but not enough content and I really wanted the tools to grow my blog. Like you though, I found things out about was fab. Check out my first vlog on Fitbloggin' but don't laugh at how embarrassed I looked. Ha! xo

Your words are exactly what I needed to hear. My challenges were different but they changed me in the same way. I left my old blog and started a new one because I too realized I needed to be more real and honest. I’m getting there. Hoping the great spirit of FitBloggin ignites the passion I once had for blogging. I know it will. See you soon my friend.
