My First blog post. ever.
Hello, 2017! I think it goes without saying that many of us have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new year. I am super excited about the new year, because in June I WILL BE GETTING MARRIED TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE! Additionally, this is the year I have decided to take the next step in my professional career with this website and by offering private nutrition counseling.
In keeping with tradition I have come up with a resolution that I feel perfectly pairs with the very busy year I have ahead of me, to be more thoughtful. This applies to so many facets of life - saving money, nurturing relationships, keeping organized, and staying on track with health and wellness. Here are a few scenarios (these are very ME specific) where this is going to be key...
You see a pair of killer heels on sale. Stop and think, do I really need those? Am I going to wear them more than once?
You see a Facebook post of a friend saying they got a new job. Stop and think, give them a call to personally congratulate them.
You forgot your lunch and that pizza place down the street is calling your name. Stop and think, maybe they have a decent salad option, or at least a slice topped with veggies.
Too often, people make goals and resolutions that are unrealistic, and quit when the going gets tough or results aren't seen right away. Don't trap yourself, support yourself! This blog will be a way of keeping myself accountable, and I am so excited to share with you every step I take!
Stay tuned for the first step in my guide to a healthier 2017... Kitchen Clean-Up!
