Chicago meetup

I’ll be in Chicago this weekend with several other health and fitness bloggers. As promised we’ve arranged not one, but two meetups. I will definitely be at the brunch on Sunday morning, but I’m not sure if I’ll be at the Saturday night meetup. It will depend on how tired I am and if my headache is bad. I might be there, I might not, but I’ll try to let you know the day of. Here are the details:

Saturday, November 8th


Hard Rock Hotel Rocks Lounge

230 N. Michigan Ave

Chicago, IL 60601

Sunday, November 9th


Panera Bread

635 N. Fairbanks Court

Chicago, IL 60611

Feel free to bring a book if you want it signed. Or just bring yourself. Hope to see you there! I doubt we’ll draw as big of a crowd as Barack Obama did last night, but it should be fun anyway!

Oh, darn! I’ll be in Michigan this weekend but I would have loved to meet you! You’re such an inspiration to me!

Can’t wait to meet you!! I’m also going to do lunch if you want to join me. If you have a late flight that is!

It seems like a lot of the health & wellness blogs I read are all going to be there! It sounds awesome. Alas, I am not in Chicago, but please take some pics and spread the love!

I look forward to hearing about it!

I am reading your book now and am on page 170 and really enjoying it!

Well, you could always invite Obama to come along if it’s big crowds you’re after. Hope you all have a great weekend there! Looks like I moved out of Chicago too soon! (Okay, it was about twenty years ago. If only I’d known!)

Hi Jennette,

My husband and I will be meeting up with everyone on Saturday. Cannot wait to meet you. Your story is truly an inspiration and I love your writing style.
