My goodness it has taken me a long while finish my re-cap of #BlogFest but honestly I am LOVING how the posts are turning out so I do now even mind it taking longer then it should. Well not as much as I should anyways. I hope of course you have all enjoyed it though and if you didn’t go this year that you would go next year. Its going to be in Los Angeles.
Day 3 was really all about walking around, shopping and trying out new products. This is the result of spending way to much time in the expo center and then in Downtown Disney.
Without further adieu here is Day 3!
So the first thing I wanted to do once the expo opened is try out the Total Body Board. I kept walking by this board the last 2 days and finally had a chance to try it out! It was created by Charles Austin who is an Olympic Gold Medalist. Now you can do soo many exercises on this board. It really is a whole body workout. I really do recommend this in a personal gym and really I would love to have this myself. Its on my bucket list for once I get a job and a little more stability.
But as I was saying you can do all sorts of workouts on this board.
I actually was doing around 150 pounds on weighted cords without even feeling it. On the bar by it self was 50 pounds and the weighted cords around my stomach was 100. It felt like I could do even more exercises, sadly I had to give other people a chance to try it out. To learn more about them you can check them out on Twitter and Facebook. They are located in San Marcos, TX so if you are over there go check them out in person!!
Next I had a great little 10 minute workout with TRX. Honestly the things those trainers could do with the suspension cords is just amazing! My arms were really feeling it. I do have to say that by working out with an actual trainer really did make a lot of difference. Before when I would see the whole suspension system in the gym I felt like I had no idea what I was doing (which I didn’t soo) but now I would feel more confident in using them.
TRX has a new little toy that I reaily wanted to try out as a workout but apparently so did everyone else so I was unable to get a shot at it. However the TRX Rip Trainer is a weighted bar with the suspension cord. It focuses on the core while you are building up resistance and endurance. I did have a small taste of it while taking this.
Of course I had to chose the Star Wars one. There was this jaws and a hiking one but this was the best. I am not 100% certain if I was winning this fight or not but it was enjoyable to try and beat Darth Vadar.
I was happy to run Libby from Bruises in the Frosting. It should be mentioned that I love this woman and she is also a Star Wars fan! I swear she was my #blogfest sister!
It was fun playing with the green screen. Here is a look behind the scenes!
However, after this it was time to try out another activity…shopping!!!
This was a cardio workout all in itself. Also these are all for me. Yes you shall have some goodies I promise but these…these are for me. I would like to give a huge shoutout to Lorna Jane and Blogilates for taking all my money. Not sure if the hubby appreciates this but I sure do. It was fun getting all of these awesome workout clothes and well worth the money to feel like a million while working out!
After I decided that I had done enough damage for at least one credit card Libby and I decided to head down to Disney. We heard that if you go after 4pm you could get half priced tickets. We double checked with the Idea World staff and they said yes it was true. So we happily headed outside.
Ya for Disneyland!! I have lived here in So Cal my whole life and have only been to Disneyland twice. Once as a kid and the other time was a few years ago, more then 5, before the Hubby and I were married. However, it was not to be. Apparently, we were supposed to get the tickets over at the convention center and not at Disney. We didn’t know that so Disney itself was out of our reach. But Downtown Disney was just right ^_^
I am showing you these coffee cups as Christmas is coming up and if you all love me you will get these 2 for me. I want them soooo badly. The Star Wars one says ‘Judge me by my size do you’ and is just perfect! Plus the Belle coffee cup is just so pretty. So yes I want them and one day I shall have them!
In the Disney store there is a statue of Genie. I was very happy that they did not take it down. As one of my favorite characters that Robin Williams ever did I was happy to take a selfie with the genie. If you ever go into the store don’t forget to pay your respects to Genie! I am sure he would love it.
Afterwards Libby and I had to take a picture of our new hats! She got Maleficent, it was sooo hard to find, and I got a Princess Belle one. Got to say we look majorly sexy with the hats! Plus we got ton of attention with them. All good!
It was time to treat ourselves. Honestly, with all the working out and walking we totally needed it! Mine was such a yummy White Chocolate Caramel Apple. It wasn’t finished here and the hubby even got a few bites. He was so lucky for each bite…I really didn’t want to share.
It was after this that the day took a nice end. It was a great 3 days of learning, exercise, making friends and just a whole great experience. I was lucky enough to be part of this amazing group of bloggers and friends. I cannot wait until next year and we all get together again!
Thank you for also being part of this blogfest review. I hope that you have not only enjoyed it but also will come next year!
