Bariatric Foodie will be at FitBloggin 2012!

So…I’ve been a little…sparse…lately.
Life gets that way for me
sometimes! I am working on a few new recipes but this week my focus is on a
conference I’m attending called FitBloggin’.
Here’s a description from their website.

The FitBloggin’ Conference is for anyone who blogs about fitness, wellness, good food and a healthy lifestyle–regardless of where they are in their journey. Our attendees are a melting pot of fit-minded people. Some of us are on a mission to lose weight. Others are training for triathlons. We have gym rats and folks learning to run. We welcome vegetarians, vegans, and convenience food junkies alike. We may all be in different stage of fitness, but we all share one passion: To live a happy, healthy balanced life. 

More than just another blogging conference, FitBloggin’ is all about the desire to use technology, blogging and social media to motivate, inspire and foster a culture of health and wellness. We strive to bring together bloggers from all walks of life to create a tightly connected group of men and women who care deeply about and are committed to spreading this passion for fitness.

I first heard of this conference a
few years ago when my pal Beth (aka Melting Mama) attended it. I thought it
looked interesting but far too expensive for me to try to attend – even though
it’s held in my own city!
This year, though, they gave away
free registrations in exchange for live blogging one session, which I happily
agreed to do! So I get to learn more about fitness, healthy eating and the
business end of blogging (of which I am an idiot as evidenced by the fact that
you all STILL don’t have your protein shake book…but it’s coming!).
And great news! Both Beth and my
pal Shelly (aka Michelle aka Eggface) are attending as well. So the WLS
blogosphere will be REPRESENTIN’!!!!
To answer the obvious question,
yes we are discussing a good time for a meet up but I don’t have any firm details
yet. Stay tuned! And if you’re in the Baltimore area consider coming to meet us
when we get our collective selves together.
Until then, I look forward to
getting lots of great info for you, Foodies! Tomorrow I start the conference
with a tour of the McCormick spice factory to learn how to enhance healthy
eating through spices.
I’ll report back each day!
