This is how I started my day…I was there representing our Weight Management Center and I really enjoyed it.
The day started with a fabulous presentation by Judge Angelita Blackshear-Dalton – oh my gosh – she was a great speaker to start the day. Her topic was “Being the BEST for the TEST”….She spoke about setting goals and dreaming big. Very inspiring.
And, then my fabulous co-worker, Cheryl, led us in an excellent de-stressing break. Cher is a fabulous yoga instructor and is so great at calming and leading mindfulness exercises.
Then, I attended a great discussion led by Adina Chumley on “Twitter This: Building Social Capital in a Hi-Tech World”. It was a great presentation about marketing yourself and branding yourself online. I haven’t really gotten into Twitter yet…I know some of you twitter….I’d love to hear your thoughts….
So, overall I had a great morning and really enjoyed the presentations. I also got to network with some people and share what we do through our weight management center.
The conference was going on all day, but I had to leave at lunchtime to go back to my office….Lunch was another yummy salad….
- mixed greens, spinach
- grape tomatoes
- red onion
- green pepper
- lots of edamame
- strips of beets
- dried cranberries
- sunflower seeds
- pumpernickel croutons
- balsamic vinaigrette
- cucumber and onion salad
- small bit of broccoli salad
YUM! So delicious and healthy!
Then, later, Anthony’s mom Jean came over for dinner. We had spaghetti….on my plate is spaghetti with a bit of tomato/meatsauce and basil pesto on top…and a piece of garlic bread with pesto too!
So, these were my two meals mixed into a busy day….It seems lately I have been running non-stop….hope my meals inpsire you that healthy eating is possible even in the middle of a busy life…
And, I want to say thank you to Lauren at Today I Pray for this lovely award…check out Lauren’s blog if you haven’t – very inspiring and a great reminder each day.
Now, off to bathe the dog and work on packing for our beach trip.
