I've had my blog for quite a while now, and started it originally to share stories about my move across the pond. Then decided to blog about my weight loss journey when I rejoined Weight Watchers in January. This got me more active on twitter and I discovered loads of other people blogging about weight loss and healthy eating and keeping fit.
Then recently I heard the term fitbloggin and discovered a whole community of fitbloggers :) and it turned out they were having a local meetup, so I thought hey why not, it's a great excuse to meet some new people, and also people who have some of the same interests as me :)
So yesterday I attend a Silk Marvelous Morning House Party at MarBaird's house. After a bit of an ordeal getting there - thanks for that BART, I was greeted with a class of champagne and pom juice. We all brought along something we had baked. I made a spinach and cheese quiche from the new weight watchers cookbook, missmarisol made some gorgeous potatoes, debroby made a meatza which tasted so good and I will definitely be making it in the near future, Deb's is also a certified personal trainer and did an excellent resistance band demo - I am so going to buy some when my back is better. asynja made some vegan dishes including yummy date brownie bites and some very yummy rhubarb squares - which I bought home for my husband and he loved it. The meetup was also sponsored by Silk so we got lots of silk items to try including the new silk fruit & protein, it was nice but a bit too sweet for me, there was also some pretty cool freebies and coupons too :) We also had some Chobani yogurt to try and I finally tried the blood orange flavor which was so good. Keep checking MarBaird's blog as she has a competition coming up soon to win a crate of Chobani, she also made some super cute mini pancakes with fresh fruit.
We had such a great time and it was so nice to meet everyone, I am looking forward to the next one and also hope to host one myself in the near future.
Thanks again to Marlene for hosting x
