It seems I haven’t blogged in over a year. In the last 4 months I have been reminded of this day after day. That’s been a happy thing for me because it means I’ve been talking to people about nutrition and they have been engaged and wanting to know more. So awesome. However, my life just hasn’t had room for it and I’ve been trying to embrace balance. My hope through this past year was that come September I would really ramp things up because my littlest one was starting morning preschool and I would…have time…wait a second, what’s that? Although, since he has started I have been busier, in a different way, then I was with the kids at home.
So here is my quick HI! Trying to get myself back into the blogging thing. Over the next couple of days I’m hoping to give you an update on “I’m a Nutritionist and I Need to Lose 20 pounds” because this has been an ongoing journey for me with many new lessons and realizations that I think have really helped me with my clients. And I would love to share this with all of you!

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
