Journey to 30

Guys, I apologize for the lack of posts, but life just got a little busier. A lot of big changes currently happening and I wanted to share some updates with my little army of followers. Rest assured, a recipe will be posted at the end! 🙂

I will be turning 30 in a few days and normally I would be sulking at the thought of getting one year older, but this year feels different. This year I am embracing the changes and am feeling very thankful and blessed for everything I have and the people in my life. I am ready to say good bye to my twenties and start this new decade. A lot of things to look forward to this year and beyond. So let’s begin with some updates, shall we?

1. Logo Launch — You may or may not have noticed my new logo. I won’t mention too, too much about my logo or website right now, but stay tuned (30 day paleo challenge coming up)! Thanks to the wonderful Jill for helping me with my logo and branding.

2. Yoga Every Damn Day/60 Day Bikram Yoga Challenge — Last year I completed a 30 day challenge and because 30 days isn’t challenging enough (who am I?), I decided to double up and do 60 days with my 30th class landing on my 30th birthday (hence… #journeyto30). Bikram Yoga has always been so mentally, physically and emotionally challenging for me, but also very rewarding and this is why I am so hooked. I have already completed 21 days and I feel amazing! The only thing different is that I am doing classes with friends — Hi Kelly, Melanie and Linda! Stay tuned for my post-60 day Bikram Yoga Wrap Up!

3. Back to School — This is one of the biggest updates from me. Never thought this day would come, but yes, you heard right, I am going back to school. Not nursing related at all, but who said nursing had to be my end-all be-all? This year, I’ve learned to listen to the whispers of the universe and follow my dreams and passions. Say hello to your future Nutritional Therapy Consultant. Very excited to begin this journey and share my knowledge.

And… last but not least, a recipe share (of course!).

NFL Season has begun so my goal is to share some healthier snacking options. This week I will be sharing an easy recipe for classic hot chicken wings!

  1. Congrats on starting the NTC course! There are so many different courses out there and I was SO PLEASED with the education I got through NTA… get ready to be inundated with information! It’s all good though – the weekend workshops are seriously FOOD for your mind/body/soul… the information, the camraderie with like-minded people… You will absolutely love it.

    • Hello Erin! That is incredible! Which program did you take? I decided on NTC (for now) because, living in Canada, I can’t commit to 3 workshop weekends right now 😦 I’m so happy to hear that you loved it! I’m excited to start!

      • I went through the full NTP course but you will still get soooooo much out of the NTC course. I think the only difference is that the NTC course does not include the hands-on Functional Evaluation which involves palpating points on the body to obtain information regarding that person’s particular deficiencies (which is completely mind-blowingly fascinating and I totally recommend it if you can study it in the future)… that being said, you can totally be a killer NTC without the FE. 😉 I had to travel for the weekends, and it was a huge commitment – I totally get it. Keep me posted on how you like it! And reach out if you need anything! I love putting my head together with other classmates!!
