HLBHLSATTENDINGbadgeREMINDER: If you’re headed to #HLS12 next month, we’ve been sharing some information you should get familiar with on the weekends here on HLB.  And if you haven’t yet signed up to join us in Cambridge, Mass – Good News!! There are still some tickets left if you want to get in on the action!

This year’s Summit is proving to be balls-to-wall amazing.  One word I’ve been focused on since day 1 of the HLBHLS collaboration is COMMUNITY.  I’d be wrong to turn a blind eye to some of the less-than-pleasant experiences fellow bloggers and friends have shared in regards to Summits past. [note: these are two of my favorite HLS recaps ever – and the discussion in the comments has been invaluable to me as a summit planner this year]

julie and courtneyThere’s been a lot of discussion on ways to fight a “cliquey” vibe that we’ve seen pop up in recaps; as well as questions of how to improve in other areas mentioned in the after-Healthy Living Summit surveys Meghann sent out last year.  Julie, Meghann and I, are determined to give you a Summit weekend we can be proud of and with the help of Team HLB, the awesome folks on the agenda, our spectacular sponsors, and each of our incredible attendees we know we’re well on our way.  I can’t believe we’re less than a month away!!

hlbcutoutI’m so thankful to be working with such an awesome team of bloggers to bring a new Summit experience to the weekend this year. Heather M’s been putting in some serious time scheduling and organizing bonus fitness events [details on some of these are being released very soon!] and we’d be lost without Elizabeth’s Boston (wo)manpower in local networking, cocktail party planning, and transportation explanation departments – and she’s got more information in the queue, sharing more Boston-knowledge with us very soon. [By the way, if you haven’t already – consider adding your arrival information to the spreadsheet to find cab sharing pals and T-riding partners.]

nicki and krisSoon we’ll be releasing information on Mini-Mingles being planned for Summit weekend. These are optional events being planned by your fellow bloggers and conference goers designed to get to know one another in a casual, small group setting before large group Summit events kick off. Think a Whole Foods demonstration and hot bar lunch, neighborhood photography walk, and a group outing for froyo or baked goods!  There’s even more fun stuff in the works, to boot – so keep your eyes peeled for extra information being released each week!  Nervous about meeting new friends? check out Amanda’s post on Meeting Strangers at HLS full of tips to prepare.

adorable ladiesI’m also super stoked about all the “let’s blog better!” attitude I’ve seen being chattered about in the community.  Every time I read Courtney’s post about Blog Workshopping and think about how awesome Derek’s discussion will be, I get pumped.  The same thing happens each time a session highlight is published over on the Summit site. And Rachel’s post “How to be the Last Blogger Anyone Would Expect to Speak at #HLS12” has brought a smile to my face all weekend long.

imageHEY EVERYONE! The newest episode of GiGi Eats Celebrities will be hitting the web (aka: the site, the channel, the facebook, and of course @dubagee) on July 24th. This episode is the 11th installment of the first season of the GiGi Eats Celebrities web series! The season finale is quickly approaching too but no need to mention that just yet! Tomorrow’s episode is all about the insanely ridiculous Red Bull and Adderall diet. I can assure that it’s “not hot” at all. Stay tuned as to why, although I am sure you’re all smart enough to know why. If you want a quick laugh, you definitely should stay tuned.

A little about me: I am a hungry comedic TV/ Web Host and Nutritionist, trying to educate and entertain all at the same time! Every other week I have been and will continue to, jump into pools of maple syrup, rub pork fat all over my body, make baby-food cupcakes, work the pole, chop cabbages, suck on lollipops, and oh so much more! I have also recently released a “spin-off” web series called GiGi Eats Groceries, all about the healthy and not so healthy foods to buy at the grocery store! For more information on that, hit up this video: http://gigieatscelebrities.com/2012/06/21/gigi-eats-celebrities-added-bonus/

Hope you all join me and help me spread the world! I am completely stoked to be apart of Healthy Living Blogs, after all, without our health, we would have nothing! Now go put on your sneakers and take a walk! 🙂

Tarah Cooks 1Hi! My name is Tarah and I blog over at What I Gather. I am a 31 year old Hoosier with a new-found love for nutrition and healthy living. My husband and I started following a Paleo diet about a year ago and I have really loved trying out so many fun new recipes – so much that I decided to share my fun times with the world! I don’t try to force my way of living on anyone, but I think everyone can benefit from fitting a few more wholesome foods into their diet. I also love to cycle and run and am just getting into swimming…I’ll be competing in my first triathlon in a few months! I was so excited to come across HLB and look forward to being a part of this awesome community! Also, I like bacon. And Iced Americanos.

tivity (2)Take the effort out of getting active and use Tivity – Your personal activity concierge.

 

Simply log on to the tivity website, make a request and a verified member of the Tivity community will lead your adventure to a competitive soccer game, a nearby hiking trail, a local co-ed kickball game, whatever fits your lifestyle. Track your activities through the Tivity Timeline, invite and connect with friends, comment on your experiences and get rewarded for helping others find the activities that you know best by becoming a Tivitor.

Your own personal activity concierge at your fingertips.
