Hello from Atlanta! Yup — my flight was delayed and I got put on a new flight leaving at 3:30 today….
Anyways, does anyone know where the summer went? Healthy Living Summit is less than one month away! HLS will be my first blogging conference and I can’t wait. It’s nice that it’s being held in Minneapolis so I didn’t have to worry about traveling or taking off too much time from work. I do have to fit a 20 mile run in sometime that weekend which should be interesting.
There will be some mini-mingles and fit-mingles held throughout the weekend and I’m currently looking into hosting one. So if you’re going to be attending, make sure to RSVP for my mini-mingle!
Also, I’m super excited to announce that I’m attending the conference on behalf of GymPact. For anyone that has been reading FAB for awhile, you know that I love GymPact and will sing its praises to any who’ll listen. I’m up to 354 workouts and have put my GymPact funds (About $235 to date) for fun stuff like registering for races and buying new workout clothes! For me, I’m not looking to GymPact to make a bunch of money (you only make $1-2 typically per week) but rather it’s about the motivation not to be charged for missing a workout. And that’s really motivating to me.
There will be some fun stuff coming up through this partnership, but for now, if you’ve been thinking about giving GymPact a try, you can do it using a special code the GP folks set up for me. It allows you to try it out risk free without having to enter in any payment information AND you will earn $5 right off the bat after completing your first pact! Use the code “FindingaBalance” (case sensitive without the quotes) when you sign up.
If you have any questions about GymPact — just ask!
