Happy Monday everyone! I just got home last night from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL. Sadly, no trips to Disney were made as (the inside of) this convention center was pretty much all I saw the past week!
I attended a lot of great presentations, reconnected with friends and colleagues, met some researchers in person that I knew only via Twitter and by their academic work, and had a chance to present some of my own research! It was a jam-packed conference, and while I am worn out I always come back from these meetings ready to get more work done!
The one thing that is stressful about being away from home so much – and it’s going to happen A LOT this summer for me – is being off of my normal diet and exercise schedule. While not perfect, I did what I could to turn my hotel room into a mini kitchen and I also strategically packed food for the travel days themselves.
I am planning on getting some posts up about highlights from the sessions I attended at ACSM as well as giving you all deeper look inside my nutrition game plan while traveling! It may be a little while though….because…as at the end of this week I am heading out-of-town AGAIN – this time to Iceland, Sweden and Norway! :-) Talk to you all soon!
Finally – the winner of the Krema/Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter Giveaway is….
Congrats, and be on the lookout for an email from me!
