Last weekend I attended Blissdom Canada. The conference was awesome for me – I got inspired, I met great people and made connections.
What the conference was not great for was my activity and diet. Teh actual meals were not bad. I had a great salmon at the hotel restaurant, salad both lunches and a wonderful lentil soup that I’m trying to get the recipe for. But…
Every sponsor offered treats. There were cookies and tarts and bowls of candy. Freshbooks even had maple sugar on a stick. The best/worst was the Tim Hortons suite. Doughnuts and coffee on demand. I made a conscious decision not to just take one of everything.
I woke up the second morning and my body was telling me that I had most definitely overindulged. The two cans of Coke, one Pepsi, two doughnuts and three cups of coffee, plus M&Ms were not agreeing with me.
Out of the three days of the conference I got my 10,000 steps once – the day of the dance party. I love to dance, no matter how bad I might be, and I rocked out for a good hour.
Since we got home I have been totally exhausted and again missing my steps. On Tuesday I had two naps. Seriously.
I was doing really well, I took a step back, and now I have to focus. It’s not just about getting things done in my life and my work, my body has to fit in to the equation too.
Not only do I have to do it, I can.
