BlogFest 2018!

It's no surprise I have been MIA from blogging. Life with the little one has been a bit crazy but truth be told I have been lacking any type of motivation to write anything. The ideas and topics are there but I have been doubting myself. Mostly I have been feeling a bit of a failure when it comes to the fitness/running aspect of my life. I can list a million reasons why but honestly that might place me back in my slump and that's not where I want to be. Currently I am pumped and amped to start up again, why? Well I just went to IDEA World Fitness/BlogFest and it was exactly what I needed!

What is BlogFest? Well check out this website for a little more info but basically it's a two day conference within a four day convention for fitness minded individuals. Oh and it just so happens to be the largest convention in the world! You don't have to have a blog to attend but most of us do and are very much involved in all things fitness, nutrition, and self care. Blogfest is a two day event brought on by the beautiful and talented ladies from Sweat Pink/Fit Approach.

This year it was in my home town of San Diego so I had to check it out. No excuses! It was my first time attending so initially I was very intimidated in going. Due to my work/life schedule I was only able to attend one day but I still had so much fun. There were so many great speakers that really captivated my attention, so many delicious food samples that fed my belly, and so many great workouts that helped me break a sweat. Oh yes! Can't forget about all the free swag too! I came back home with so much stuff that my husband had to ask if all of it was free. I can go on and on about how amazing this conference was but I feel like you just have to attend it to see the magnitude that it truly is.
Since I was only able to attend one day I tried to squeeze in as much as I could and because of that I barely took any pictures. I guess that just means I was truly soaking every thing in! I know there are going to be a ton of reviews on this conference and that's great but rather than bore you with another review I'll just end this post by saying this:

"Be unapologetically you!"

 Probably the best message I got from Blogfest by Heidi Powell is to be true to myself and stop trying to be perfect. My life is busy, messy, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am softer and rounder since having my baby and you know what? That's okay! Even though I may feel down about myself there may be others that still look up to me so why be so negative? I have to learn to embrace every aspect of my life because life is short. Surround yourself with likeminded people who truly support you and cheer you on during the highs and lows of life. That's what my Sweat Pink community is to me. We are a bunch of women who truly want each and every one of us to succeed. We don't pass judgment. I am so incredibly grateful for this community and the friendships it's brought into my life. I already can't wait for next year's Blogfest! So I'll sign off by showing you the very few pictures I was able to get during the conference. Have a great week everyone!
