Five Days of Fitbloggin Posts….

Sadly, this will be the LAST of my Fitbloggin posts.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the recap as much as I have.  In its own way, it’s like re-living the entire experience, which I’ve loved.  I have also enjoyed putting words to the pictures that I took and expressing how much I appreciate the people I met and the overall experience.

Now, since it’s post number 5… I thought I’d give you FIVE more things about Fitbloggin that you might be interested in.


Holy crap… I met Gina from Skinny Taste!!!!!  Hilary and I just HAD to say hello to Gina and her friend Doreen on Thursday night at the welcome reception.  She is UH-MAZING!

Why do I love Gina?  First and foremost, because she is so personable and friendly… and just fun to be around!

Secondly, Gina’s website has been one that I’ve used for years and years… I followed her when I was on Weight Watchers, and I’ve used her recipes ever since.  She healthifies every recipe she adds to her site, and takes the most beautiful pictures of the food… that makes you want to eat it immediately!

I’ve even featured a few of Gina’s recipes here on NTTC:  Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, Asian Carrot Ginger DressingPasta with Italian Chicken Sausage, Peppers and EscaroleCrockpot Applesauce, Lowfat Red Wine-Tomato Vinaigrette, Creamy Cilantro Tomatillo Dressing

Gina – You’re personally responsible for some of that 84 lbs that I’ve lost so far!  Thank you!!!!


In talking to some fellow bloggers, they mentioned that they would like to hear more about my shopping adventures and what I’m wearing on the regular!  So, that being said… Stay tuned for shopping updates!

I’ve got plenty of material for this topic.  Hopefully, you’ll enjoy what I put together!  Is there anything you’d like me to write about more?  Leave me a comment below!


I’m the LAZIEST notetaker ever… While I learned a lot at Fitbloggin, my notetaking could use some work.

I even bought this cool keyboard for my iPad… but barely used it.

Most of my notes looked like this… Thanks, Canon!


Baltimore is gorgeous… and I don’t think I’ve given you enough pretty pics.


We didn’t get any free items to take home, but I was SOOOO excited to see that Laughing Cow Cheese was sponsoring one of our breaks!  I LOVE Laughing Cow… They had bagels and their new Smooth Sensations cream cheese flavors!  For 45 calories, you can enjoy a wedge of regular, Garden Vegetable (MY FAVORITE), Strawberry and Cream, or Cinnamon Cream.  So delicious!!!

Garden Veggie FTW

I’ll take a pic with the cheese wheels…


By now, you know I’m obsessed with Subway… so don’t be too surprised when you hear that I skipped lunch at Fitbloggin twice to go to Subway instead.

My Veggie Delite is all dressed up!

Here’s the BEST part!  If you live in the DC area, you’ve had this…. but how about that hot pepper relish you can ONLY get on the East coast??  Why can’t I get this in Denver???  So delish!!!

    Love the recaps and regretting my decision not to go to Fit Bloggin…. perhaps there will be a trip for me in the future.
