Healthy Living Summit – Day 2

by Jillian on August 20, 2011 · 10 comments

I woke up bright and early and headed to breakfast. I honestly couldn’t even fathom working out this morning. I was just so tired. Luckily, Attune provided us with a delicious and healthy breakfast.

I went with some Uncle Sam topped with Oikos honey vanilla drinkable yogurt. Awesome milk alternative for cereal! I had some fresh fruit on the side.

A lot of bloggers brought goodies, but I only picked up Courtney‘s sugar cookies (after eyeing them up on her blog). It was so sweet of her to bake for us!

We listened to presentations from Dawn Jackson Blatner RD, Stepfanie from Spark People, and many blogger presentations including: Rising Above Negativity with Julie, Brittany, Courtney, and Heather, The Numbers Game with TIna, Beth, Janeetha, and Lisa, and Monetizing Your Blog with Katy Widrick. You can read more details of the agenda on the HLS website.

Overall, an amazing and inspiring day. Everyone in the healthy living blog community is so positive that it’s hard not to follow suit. HLS has given me a whole new perspective and inspired me to continue working hard on my blog and contribute even more (as much as I can, balancing a full time job) to the blogging community. I met so many new people and had a blast! Thank you to Meghann for planning a wonderful conference! Now, back to the hotel room and deciding on Philadelphia dinner plans. Hmm.. any suggestions?

SO nice meeting you this weekend and thank you a million times over for the ride! It was great just chatting with you and talking blogging/careers with a fellow NYC girl! Can’t believe we work so close to each other. We’ll have to have a happy hour soon :-)

Oh AND, love your blog, love the title, love your smoothies. Love it all! You have quite a bit going for you and I know great things lie ahead :-)
