I’m blogging breakfast during a session on blog business and tax – I should be paying attention! But here’s a quick recap of this morning 🙂
I got up this morning at 6 and hit the Westin gym. No better way to start the day!! I ran 4 miles on a treadmill (it went really fast too!) and did a circuit of upper body lifting . This is the perfect type of event where early morning workouts pay off – an afternoon one just wouldn’t happen. I also think getting up early makes a great motivation not to overindulge the night before on food or alcohol.
This conference is AWESOME! There is so much information whirling around – people to meet, business cards exchanged (I already have about 50 new blogs to check out via business cards!), sponsor tables to see. I already had a 10 minute shoulder massage! And I have a new Sigg water bottle by Leap Frog!

Of the 1,000 folks here, I just happened to run into Sarah from Suite Apple Pie as soon as I got to breakfast! She couldn’t make the dinner the other night and I’m so glad we got to meet! Sarah was also kind enough to bring me a little breakfast surprise, which will be making an appearance on Sunday morning before we head home, so stay tuned!
Continental Breakfast – half a wheat bagel with a bit of cream cheese + jam, a piece of a healthy tasting (??) muffin, a mountain of fruit, hot tea with milk. I felt like I was eating more than all the other attendees, but I was starving after my workout and needed to refuel!
We had a cookies and milk break only an hour after breakfast. I totally wasn’t in the mood for either, but after hearing mom say (after her 3rd!?! cookie) that it was the best oatmeal cookie she’d ever had, I had to try it.
Then I stumbled upon a chocolate vendor – Merci Fine Chocolates . I had 2 bites and am saving the rest for later 😉 It was quite delicious dark chocolate! And look how cute they come (sorry for the blurry, dark photo) – they’re like little lipstick tubes.
OK, going to pay attention now 🙂
