A Hodgepodge Post

10. October 2013 21:21 by jennifer | 11 Comments

It's a hodgepodge post!! A little bit of this, and a little bit of that!

I woke up this morning to cooler temperatures! This was in the car taking the kids to school. They asked me if I could turn on the heat. Life in Florida is so rough.

 

Last month I had the honor of speaking at the Working Women of Florida Conference.

My CrossFit En Fuego friend Liane was there to lend me support.

Thanks to Gwynnie Bee for providing me with a great dress for the day!

I got to meet former Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio.

She is a really fascinating woman. I didn't realize her back story at all. She autographed her book for me. The inscription says "To Jenny, Very Inspirational. You lead yourself well."

 I also had the opportunity to speak with Dawna Stone, founder of Women's Running Magazine and the Women's Running Series.

My discussion was on Power and Perception and my friends at Polar were awesome enough to sponsor our panel discussion.

I really enjoy public speaking and got great feedback on my talk.

Fast forward to today. I had a great lunch meeting with the President of Working Women of Florida about how their organization can better serve working moms in our area.

I am a working mom. True, I work at home. But I am a working mom nonetheless.

We met at the Centre Club for our lunch meeting. I had never been there before. It was nice!

The view was outstanding. I had a hard time looking Jessica in the eye because I was distracted by the gorgeous Downtown Tampa skyline!

They had a great lunch menu, but really only one item that I wanted to eat.

I didn't eat the big triangle toasted bread thingies. But they smelled good. I got the dressing and feta cheese on the side and used them sparingly. The chicken was grilled with no oil and was so tasty!

Our lunch meeting lasted 2 1/2 hours and made Jessica late for her hair appt.

I came home and snapped a quick picture of my Gwynnie Bee outfit of the day!

I love Polka dots. I love Gwynnie Bee!!  This dress is a size 8 and it's a bit too baggy, but not so baggy that I couldn't wear it in public. Tongue Out

Then I changed out of the dress and decided to mow my lawn. During my lawn mowing adventures, I realized that I could train for my upcoming CrossFit competition! One of our skills is pulling a 95 pound stack of weight backwards. So I practiced on my hill through thick wet grass pulling my push mower.

And look what was just released! A medal! I don't know if it's for all competitors or just the top placing, but it would look great on my Wall of Bling.

And that was *most* of my day!! How was your day??

Wow - you're a busy lady!  Profitable and healthy experience!

What a busy woman!!  You may, "work from home," mom, but sometimes that is much harder than working out of the home.  Many people don't realize the amount of distractions during a mother's day.

Keep up the inspirational work!

Love that dress you wore to the WWTB talk - super cute! I've thought about checking out the Centre Club occasionally - thanks for sharing your photos & thoughts.

By the way, I don't recall if I thanked you for your generous comment on my unfinished painting the other day - if not, many thanks! She is finally done & on her way to Sarasota for a fundraiser.

Good luck on your competition.  I'm so excited for you.  You are going to rock it!

susan

wow you are really on the go, very busy! Seems like you had a great time though.

Amber Edwards

What a fun time you  have been having! And MAN, I would LOVE 66 degree weather right about now! We are in 30's and 40s. I'm cold! lol.

danielle

What a great experience! Sounds like you had a great time.

Working from home is still a lot of work! I think a lot of people don't realize just how much work it really is!

Sarah

Looks like a really awesome opportunity!  I hear you on the weather... we live in Palm Springs, CA and the 60's feel unbelievably cold in contrast to the 110 summer!

Even prominent athletes are adding Yoga asanas to their training regime to develop balance, as well as injury-free muscles and spines. Grass options for the potty unit allow you to choose from either synthetic grass or natural grass sod. Even more importantly, it is absolutely not fixed for life.
