“Minimize the regrets in your own life by doing everything with intention.”
Those words were the first of many pebbles of wisdom that rained down on me during Fitbloggin14. They did not come from a fellow blogger, or sponsor. They did not find their way into my mind from a yoda meditation or a workout… they came from my cab driver “Bunny Man” on my way to the hotel on Thursday shortly after landing in Savannah.
I wanted to recap my Fitbloggin post with #ALLTHEPHOTOS since last year I took a grand total of three photos… Sad right? This year I took 400+ photos on Saturday with an SLR that are over on Flickr. I like to think of these as my gift back to my Fitbloggin family. So many people leave having not taken photos other than selfies. I never got to complete the walk I started on Thursday (the beginning of that album) on Sunday due to just being drained of all my energy from lack of sleep.
I did however manage to be part of TONS of selfies!!! the proof is in the pudding….
Those photos are in no particular order… and I am sure I am missing a few photos there… it is so hard to wrap up so much amazingness with a nice neat little bow. It just doesn’t happen.
Perhaps a highlight reel?
- Nearly putting Alan through the glass doors in the lobby for a hug
- Conga Line during ice breakers the first night
- French Macaroons & Starbucks with Kenlie
- MICKEY MOUSE in the HOUSE!!!
- Yoga where I cried
- Zumba where I cried
- Tough Love where we established #JustTrollin and #TribeLove
- Ignite- All of it, from Dre’s rap to Gerri sharing so much with us about Roni
- Finding my Celery Stalker had been in my bed while I was out of the room!! #CrisperDrawerLove
- JeffGalloway when I cried telling him about Margaret, and he just let me ramble on.
- Discovering I don’t like pralines, but I do still love popcorn!
- ALL THE HUGS
- ALL THE SELFIES
- ALL THE FRIENDS
- ALL THE EVERYTHING!
I miss everyone… It was a rough journey getting back home from Savannah. Many tears were shed leaving the hotel. I am thankful Erin was willing to chat with the chatty cab driver because I wasn’t up for anything except holding everything inside. DubyaWife, Erin and I encountered some plane trouble. It made me miss my connection… I got the last open seat on the red eye back to Minneapolis… and barely made it onto that flight. Erin ended up having to stay another night… but that is her story to tell.
I am already looking forward to Fitbloggin15, my eyes are on Denver. My goals are to me SMALLER, STRONGER, FITTER, and just as Fabulous by the time I see many of the people I met. I have plans to hopefully reconnect with several of my friends before a year has passed, as we all focus on living with intention and being more authentic in our intentions.
Start saving your dollars now… you wont want to miss out on Denver, I don’t want to be sending you a “wish you were” here postcard or linger in the sunrise sipping coffee thinking of you.
