The Healthy Living Summit has come and gone. I got to participate in a panel with two of the most thoughtful, boldest women I know, Rachel and Dori. The conversation topics weren’t always easy ones to address, the type that have no clear answers, but I hope we shared helpful insights and provoked thoughts in those that attended. It’s so hard to gauge how an audience is feeling but based on the tweets that came through, I think people were engaged.
Luckily Chase was there to capture my panel for me. All these pictures are from her – thanks Chase!! (Chase is one of those bloggers that I’ve always felt a particular connection to and when we finally met it in person, it was like we were life-long friends.)
Anyway, I digress! Onto pictures from the panel.
This is my demonstration that I never keep my elbows off the table. Ever. Even at nice restaurants and during important panels.
This is my smile I give when I’m talking about something uncomfortable.
And I have no idea what face this is but I’d love to know what was happening at this exact moment since we all have awesome “what the crap” looks going on. ha!
I think this is my thinking mid-sentence face. I should think less often.
This was my lovely roomie and partner in crime for the weekend, Holly.
Unfortunately, I got pretty darn sick over the weekend and wasn’t able to enjoy the events as much as I would have liked. I nearly ended up going to the emergency room (and if I wasn’t so worried about my health insurance coverage out of state, I would have based on my conversation with my doctor friend). Holly and Rachel and Dori were all so lovely in making sure I was ok, even texting days after the weekend to check in. Thank you friends!
Many of you have tweeted and asked on Instagram if I am ok and have sent well-wishes after I posted a pic at the doctor’s office. Thank you! I (potentially) have a pretty serious upper GI issue that I mistook for dehydration and fatigue. (I’m holding out hope it’s not what they think!) Soooo I’m going to have a little procedure next month to check things out further. I feel OK– just some stomach pain, lightheadedness and nausea. I guess I don’t really feel OK… but it is what it is! 🙂
K, more pictures and HLS recaps later! xo
