I am going to break the Blend Retreat recaps into multiple posts because I have a lot of pictures and a lot to share. I hope you don’t mind! Plus, it keeps the good times rolling for a few more days and I can reminisce some more. I still can’t believe it’s over. I remember getting the survey to see how many people would be interested and what dates worked. Now, it’s over and we are all having withdrawal!
Anyhoo, I last left you at bedtime Friday night. My alarm went off at 6am on Saturday morning to get ready for boot camp. We went out to the large field at the bottom of the lodging area where there were beautiful views. We were greeted by Fitmixer with bottles of already mixed amino to power us through the workout!
Then, we separated into 7 groups.
We had to sprint to the center of the circle, grab a tennis ball, and do as many of the exercise that was listed on the ball as we could in 60 seconds.
Our team didn’t win, but we had a blast doing as many seal jacks and squat jumps as we could!
Next up was breakfast sponsored by Xagave.The setup was adorable!
They had bagels, toast, almond butter, homemade jams (made with Xagave – they generously gave each of us a copy of the cookbook and I cannot wait to make the strawberry one!), blueberry and carrot muffins made with Xagave, Chobani, oatmeal, dried fruit, regular fruit, nuts, granola, and Green Mountain Coffee straight from the Keurig! I loved that they had a Keurig station setup with a selection of K cups and nut/soy/coconut milk! A food bloggers dream!
I thoroughly enjoyed my coffee! I also enjoyed some samples of Cheribundi!
Steve from Xagave told us a little about the products and how it was featured in some of the goodies (jam, muffins) that we were enjoying for breakfast.
I couldn’t help but fill my plate with a little bit of everything! I grabbed a banana, lemon blueberry granola, fruit, a muffin, toast with almond butter and strawberry jam, and a 0% Chobani, of course!
I made myself a little yogurt bowl and went back for more almond butter and jam. It was addicting!
Good thing I did, because it powered me through the intense hike afterwards! More to come……
