Miss Selina getting in some posing practice and being generally silly. It has been a long time since this little black duck went to FILEX and it was a really enjoyable experience. I chose a rather diverse series of lectures but enjoyed the exercise phys related ones the most - seeing the Krebs cycle again was like meeting an old friend.
I started early, catching the 6.30am Virgin flight down to Sydney with Shannon, had an awesome second breakfast with her and Kerryn and after the first lecture, kicked back at the bar and looked at the water and shared a Diet Coke - was a lot of fun.
Kerryn and I shared a room at a hotel near the Convention and after my first planned snack was devoured we ate out for the entire duration of the convention, the most hilarious part being the restaurant we went to on Saturday night - the meal I ordered of salmon and steamed veggies came presented like one of my everyday Paleo meals - so much for a planned indulgence. I made up for it last night though with some superb cookies and cream icecream..those Danish icecream makers know how to get it right!
The Expo was amazing - I came away with a pair of workout pants and a pink kettlebell!
There were lots of displays there, many many samples of protein bars, which to me are Franken foods (ie foods made of chemicals that masquerade as food) - I ended up having a rather large bar for afternoon tea yesterday which upset my tummy big time. Protein bars give me really horrible stinky gas.
My flight back home was late and the airport was full of obnoxious football players who were carrying on in the waiting lounge. As I walked past them, it was the opportune moment to relieve myself of some protein bar steam. I am childish enough to admit I had a bit of a chuckle when they all started arguing over "who farted". Flight home was uneventful and gas free :)
Taught RPM today, over and out!
