My first blogger meet up was great!!! Believe it or not I have lived on Long Island my whole life and this was the first time I ventured into the city on my own.
Sunday morning I jumped on the train and headed to the city to meet up with a few of the other bloggers for my first attempt at hot yoga. I arrived in the city at 9:45 am and managed to get to the yoga studio in 7 minutes without getting lost!!! As usual I arrived way too early but I’d rather be early than late, so I just waited on the stoop until the yoga studio opened.
I met up with 4 other bloggers at the studio, Yoga To The People: Keelie from Sweat=Success, Lynda from Healthy Hoboken Girl, Juliette from Finish Your Broccoli and Ashley from Freckles and Spice. We were basically stuck in a room heated to 105 degrees with about 10 other people plus the instructor for 90 minutes. We were told we couldn’t leave the room during the 90 minutes of
torturous sweaty yoga and if we felt sick we should just lie down. As it turned out I loved the class, I was able to participate in about 90% of it but I did get a little dizzy and nauseous a couple of times so I just laid down as instructed. My muscles have never felt so good and I don’t think a have ever sweat so much……but I survived and I do plan and taking more hot yoga classes.
After class I had the best cold shower ever!!! We all showered and freshened up before meeting the rest of the bloggers at brunch. I’d say we all cleaned up really well!!!
Brunch was amazing, the food was delicious and reasonable priced: $14.95 for meal, coffee, 1 drink (I had a Bloody Mary), and a basket full of bread and muffins for the table!
Bread Basket followed by my buttered corn muffin followed by my delicious entree (poached eggs over broccoli rabe and Italian sausage topped with sauce and mozzarella) followed by Aubrie’s delicious looking and smelling entree (French toast Monte Cristo).
The Brunch was filled with amazing people, amazing conversations and amazing food…..what more could you ask for?
