2 Year Blogiversary with a big announcement
How do you celebrate a blogiversary? I think this amazing looking cake will do.
I started blogging two years ago. August 27, 2010 (follow that link to my first post). Two years later, I’ve published 612 posts (I guess I have a lot to say). My blog has chronicled my thoughts and opinions through several different phases in my life after taking charge of my health. And, now I’m embarking on a new phase. Keep reading – - I’ll get to it.
I started blogging because I had made some major changes in my life as far as taking care of my health. Honestly, I thought I knew a lot and I wanted to share that with people. Once I started blogging, I quickly learned that I didn’t know that much at all. I quickly learned that taking care of my health was an ongoing journey.
Before I started blogging, I would read everything I could about health, nutrition and fitness. Once I got involved with my blog, I continued to devour as much information as possible. During that time, I also began exploring options for going back to work after being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years (at that point). I was passionate about nutrition and health and made the decision to go back to school to become a Dietitian.
I took one class that first semester to test the waters and see how the balance of school and family priorities would work out. It seemed to be easy. I then tackled 2 more semesters of classes and eventually got to the hard stuff. Now, that I have a better understanding of how the balance of my priorities is going and the timing of all of this, I have made the decision to not continue with the RD program and to go back to work in a traditional setting.
This decision didn’t come easy. But, for many reasons that don’t need to be public information, this is the best decision for me and my family.
When I was deciding what to do with my career two years ago, I couldn’t imagine going back to work in a traditional setting. Two years later, I’m actually looking forward to it. I have an education, an excellent one at that – my MBA is with an emphasis in Human Resources Management. My ideal job right now is being involved with corporate wellness programs. I can combine my passion for nutrition and health with a traditional job. I know it.
Dietitians are highly trained professionals. I admire each and every one of them for their knowledge and expertise. I’ve connected with many of them through my blog and have always been impressed. Please go see a Registered Dietitian for your nutritional needs.
Please continue to read my blog as a person who is passionate about nutrition and health and who hopes to lead by example while raising healthy kids and maintaining a healthy family.
I also look forward to being a role model for busy working moms who make the time to take care of themselves. That is the balance I’ve been blogging about for 2 years and will continue to do so. I look forward to sharing the journey with all of you.
