As exciting as trying local restaurant hot spots has been since arriving in Cambridge/Boston on Thursday, for bloggers, the first meal of the Healthy Living Summit is just as exciting! Yummy food that doesn’t make you feel rotten is always a win.
There was a super huge spread of fruit, yogurt parfaits, muffins, and a few savory hot meals. But my favorite part of breakfast was Kelly’s Greek inspired egg scramble , which had spinach and feta. Now that two hours have passed and I’m already thinking of lunch, I’m wishing I had gone back for seconds!
After breakfast, we separated into small groups for icebreakers. Heather asked me if I was willing to be the head of the purple sticker herd and naturally I said yes. Not only do I enjoy this sort of thing but Heather is the kind of person you want to be around, always, and it’s darn near impossible to say no to the Heathers of the world.
We went around the circle, answering randomly ridiculous questions about each other. It’s always so interesting to see how people respond to the unexpected. It was giggle-inducing for sure. And at 9 AM in a room full of tons of people you’ve probably only met in the virtual world, giggles are good.
While the bulk of the Summit dabbled in some Crossfit action, my roommates (Emily & Rachel) and I went on a stroll to Boston. It was a little dreary out, but it was a welcomed change from the typical August heat.
Time to go back into HLS sessions!
