Cinci SP Convention

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Hi everybody!

I'm back from the Cinci Convention. All hyped up and ready to start anew. Start? Is anybody really surprised? Yes, I quit for a long while. The good news is I didn't gain it all back! I am still 6.6 lbs under my starting weight. I'll take it!!! Lol!

The convention was awesome. About 250 in attendance. I was shocked! I thought there would be a cpl thousand! I can't wait til the next one! They practically paid us to go with all the perks. We stayed in a gorgeous suite along the OH River. We were on the 8th floor with balconies on the interior on each floor and wonderful city views in our rooms. Plants and a macaw and fountains were in the main part on the 1st floor. Glass elevators, an appetizer get together and a wonderful made to order omelet and breakfast area were also included. We were really made to feel special.

I met Sparkguy and Coach Nicole and Chef Meg and other staff. They were all teriffic. We received a nice goodie bag w a special Cinci SP Convention tee shirt, key chain, pen, notebook, magnet and canvas bag. Also included were sample udderly soft lotion, popchip, trail mix and cranberry raisinet treats. We received a folder w agenda, maps, coupons and I forget what else. I didn't run into anyone I already knew, but we received 16 SparkYourLife Goodie Cards to pass out w our user name on it to make more connections. I met top notch ppl. (Of course we all knew That SP ppl were just that!)

We observed a cooking demonstration by Chef Meg with a recipe card for Blueberry Flax Seed Muffins and plenty of samples. Coach Nicole led us in a yoga stretch session which felt so nice! Sparkguy told us his and the site's story. Very funny! He is a very "real" man. He also told us of a new book entitled The Spark with a more in depth explanation of the four stages and personal stories which will be out in December. You may pre-order it here somewhere. I haven't found it/looked yet. It was 42 on Amazon's best seller list that day and it hasn't even been released! Chris may be promoting the book on a very popular TV talk show very soon. The largest audience day time talk show which we promised not to tell who's. She is a billionaire and is of color! I didn't tell!!!

We were taught The Perfect Plate Planner and were given quizes to determine our eating personalities and eating styles. We also learned of The Four Mindful Bites concept.

It was awesome!!!

I can't wait to go again!

Sorry I didn't see you there. :(

    Hi Miss Woo-Woo,
    I'm so glad you got a chance to get to the convention!!!! I've been quite down due to my neck surgery, which flared up my fibromyalgia REALLY big time! I forgot how much that stuff could make me hurt and got a big wake up call. I still have one more surgery to go for a single fusion in my mid back and will let you know when I'll be having that done. I did so want to get together with you this summer in Ohio, but maybe it will happen next summer after all this surgery and recovery junk is all over with.

    I don't think we got to meet, but it was a great time, wasn't it. I sure hope they have another one in the area. I'll be there for sure!
