I’ll be getting drunk with blogging pals and/or speaking at the second annual Fitbloggin’ conference in Baltimore in May 2011. Fitbloggin’ is a conference “for bloggers interested in fitness, wellness, good food and a healthy lifestyle”, organised by Roni Noone, fitblogger extraordinaire.
I was all set to go this year – I even bought a Boston guidebook! This is why you should read websites and not just idly scan them. Yeah I recall seeing a capital B on the Fitbloggin site. Must have been Boston. Clicky click, add Rough Guide To Boston to shopping cart.
I seem to have some kind of mental block with East Coast USA – I mixed up the White House and the Capitol the other day. But this year I’ve read the information properly and I’m confident that the conference takes place in BALTIMORE.
The schedule is still being finalised but the tentative title of the panel I’m on is Ditch the Diet – Eat Mindfully!
Despite the panel subject, I must confess when Roni gave me the green light to be a speaker the ye olde inner dieter was whispering urgently in my ear, “Hey lardy! 204 days til Fitbloggin! You could drop a good 30 pounds by then. Shall we cancel all birthday cakes and Christmas dinner with the in-laws?”
But I am just too old and grumpy for that crap now. The mindful eating is going so well and I don’t want to screw that up. I’ll be at the conference in whatever state I’m in, all fired up to see old and new friends. And to finally meet my podcast comrade Mizfit in person. Wonder if we could figure out how to record live? Rock and roll.
