I’m back!!! I finally got my website set up, I started blogging…..and then life hit and I disappeared. My intent with blogging was to produce two posts a week (on Monday and Thursday) filled with helpful healthy living content and great recipes for you guys. Then life happened. I work a day job as an environmental scientist and as you may assume from the job title, the summer is our busiest time of year! In addition to my day job, I am going to school at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to get my Holistic Health Coach Certification. While I find that SUPER interesting and not overly demanding on my brain, it does take time to watch the lectures and do the additional reading assignments. As if that’s not enough but I also have my partnership with Beachbody as a coach so I run monthly fitness motivation and accountability groups as well as help get new coaches on my team started with their own business ventures. So all that plus being an active puppy mama, spending time with Josh, and keeping up with my own fitness goals….well that hasn’t left a lot of time for researching great content to post on here.
I felt a little like I had failed but then I took a closer look at my posts and traffic generated by each one and found something really interesting. The posts that have had the most traffic have been the ones where I take the time to talk a little bit about what’s going on in my day to day life. After noticing that it hit me, blogging about how I make it all work (while staying sane) is what people are LOOKING for! It’s also a great way for you guys to get to know me, and in turn it’s a great way for me to get to know you (because my hope is that the more real I am, the more you’ll leave comments and we’ll get a great dialogue going!).
So, I’m back. But it’s not always going to be well thought out posts that took a significant amount of time to research and write. It’s going to be the little things….the little things I do day in and day out to live a healthy and (mostly) well balanced lifestyle while being a busy working a professional career, going to school, and starting a business. It’s not always pretty but hopefully the lessons I’ve learned along the way, and will no doubt continue to learn, will someone help you on your journey to wellness.
