Show of hands – how many others come out of a conference GAINING weight?
I just attended a great conference, not just great because of the wonderful program (more later after I digest it all) but also because of the neverending, fantastic tasting FOOD. Everywhere. Great food. And drink (I drank enough great coffee and tea to float the hotel).
Free food is calorie free – so go ahead and indulge! Vendor dinner? Have that rich dessert! Break time? Cookies AND brownies thankyouverymuch! Buffet breakfast? Bacon for everyone!
Sigh. If only. This particular conference recognized the need for healthy options (break time is not just for cookies anymore). They also had yoga. Yes – YOGA at a librarian conference. FREE yoga! I was so pleased to try this out (really yoga? sore after a relaxation? guess I’m stiffer than I knew). The organizers kept us moving, room to room and up and down stairs.
I totally deserved the cup o’gummy worms after that workout!
