Oh hi, Boulder. I think I love you.

Hello from the Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference in beautiful Boulder, CO!

Oh Hai, Rockies!

It’s kind of awesome here. I might keep it. 😉


This is me! If this is your first visit to the blog, I encourage you to read a little bit about me, catch up on my background with weight, health, and starting this blog, and peruse a few of my top posts.

I started off my day bright & early with an 8:30 flight out of DC, killing time on the flight by laughing my ass off (much to the delight of my seat-neighbors, I’m sure.)


Buy this book. Seriously. I’m only four chapters in and I already have a cramp from trying to hold in my laughter on the plane! After waiting forevvvver for the Super Shuttle (and meeting up with a couple of other conference-goers on the way!) I arrived in Boulder!

Welcome to Colorado!

I’m rooming with Casey, and our room is on the Concierge floor of the hotel – complete with breakfast buffet access (sweet!) and the most amazing sundeck. I haven’t had time to check it out yet, but you can bet that I will be snapping some pics of the fantastic view later!


Right now I’m munching on some Driscoll’s strawbs (I’m sooo hungry – no time for lunch!) and listening to the keynote presentation by Shellie Pfohl, the Executive Director of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, & Nutrition.


She was appointed by Prez Obama himself, and is discussing the state of the US’s health (note: it ain’t good.) and what the government is trying to implement in order to change that. Very intersting, but saddening statistics! Well, at least we’re in the healthiest state in the country while listening to it, haha!

I’ll be back with plenty more updates as the conference continues (working on my multitasking skillz, yo!) If you’re attending the conference, be sure to flag me down and say hi!


  1. Sighhh, I miss you! I wish I had gone!

    • I wish you were here too! Are you going to be in town next weekend? Jenn and I are going to try to meet up!

  2. I read an entire post! Have fun in Boulder!

    • Haha! Only ’cause this was a short one though, right? 😉 Thanks! I bet you’re happy that I’m the Powell sister taking the trip out here this time, huh? 😀

  3. How beautiful! I LOVEEE Boulder and Estes Park!
