Guess who’s back, back again. Hello! It’s been a while, and I’ve missed you. As you can see, there have been some changes made to the website (new domain, who dis?). Without boring you with all the little details, 2017 was a HARD year for me. Many ups and a few more downs. For one, I felt completely overwhelmed by the whole blogging thing, and I began to resent cooking and writing about nutrition – and that was a major sign for me that I needed to make some adjustments.
I started following many very talented bloggers and began to feel inadequate. How are they posting so often? Where do they find the time? The guilt seeped in and took over! What I did not consider was that these very accomplished women were FULL-TIME bloggers. They did not have a full time job additional to all the work that goes into making a successful website. As I fully enjoy my current career, I had to re-evaluate and prioritize my short-term goals; I had to find my mission and stop comparing myself to others.
I know that I want to practice private nutrition counseling, and that is what I need to focus on. You can still count on a recipe here and there, and maybe the occasional rant on a nutrition topic that I feel needs to be expressed. Really, in order to maintain my sanity, cooking needs to stay an escape and relaxing practice – not homework.
SO. If you’re looking for nutrition resources related to disease prevention or management or you want to embark on a health and wellness journey, this is a great place for that. I will leave the blogging to pros and do what I do best – helping others become their best selves.
Check back in the next few weeks to see what I have cooking for 2018!
Thanks for reading,
