ANCE 2011

by Meg on March 25, 2011


MDA_ Today, I went to my second ANCE-MDA Annual Conference. I saw some amazing speakers but more importantly I got to spend time with some amazing women- both RDS and not..well not yet! Winking smile  Thank you ladies(especially Elise, Marcia and Julie) for making my day so wonderful!

As per usual- they were vendors there but not as many as usual. I spoke to one of the woman from Equal Exchange and tried a piece of their NEW chocolate bar -Chocolate Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt (55% Cacao). It was pretty amazing, and gluten free!


After  three amazing morning lectures(one on ICU Support, another on being Mindful, and finally the third on the obesity epidemic) – it was time for lunch.

The conference organizers had given me a special ‘red’ card that told the staff what my dietary restrictions were. It sure was nice to have this part of my day taken care of for change! They brought me a salad to start and for my main meal: chicken, rice and veggies! 

I had the opportunity to sit with some of my favorite ladies from school as well as the o’ so famous sports nutritionist Nancy Clark at lunch, which was pretty cool.


I then went on to two more lectures- one on being an nutrition entrepreneur and the other on social media. Both had little tidbits that I look forward to using in the future! 


Then, around 4:30- Elise, Marcia and I left the conference content with the information we had collected and ready to go home.

After a long day of sitting all I wanted to do was go for a walk! So when I got home this evening- that’s exactly what I did! It felt fantastic…

For dinner I was in the mood for comfort foods- a large salad and penne with red sauce!


It really hit the spot!


Tonight- I’m going to watch one episode of Glee and then go to bed- I’ve got a George workout in the morning to get ready for!
