Life has been beyond chaotic lately and I’m learning how to truly spend my time wisely. What I’d like to do and what I need to do are 2 distinct categories right now. I thought that amidst the craziness that is life I’d share a few things I’m thankful for…
2 short weeks in a row because of Jewish holidays. I’ve never been so happy to have 2 days off to take care of school, business building, and maybe relax a bit too!
Coffee. Last week I weened myself off of caffeine in preparation for fasting on Yom Kippur. Come Sunday morning, I was ecstatic to have a cup of coffee back in my hand.
Someone who makes me smile on a daily basis and reminds me that there are things more important than striving for perfection.
Quiet, leisurely mornings. I love enjoying breakfast and starting my day in peace and quiet. That doesn’t always happen since I’m not living on my own at the moment and I savor every opportunity that comes up.
What are you thankful for?
As you know, I’m studying to be a nutrition and health coach. Saying that still doesn’t get old! Roughly 10 weeks and 1 test later I still get excited that I spend a lot of time learning and thinking about food, nutrition, and optimum health!
As my studies progress, we are focusing not only on the topics above but also on business and marketing. I’ve learned some new skills and concepts and have “scheduled” time where I get to dream about and plan for my future business.
One of the “to-dos” I revisit often is my business name. I love the name of this blog but don’t really see that being a viable name for my business. I keep toying with ideas of what to call my future practice but haven’t settled upon anything yet.
With a lot of creative minds, I would love to get your opinion. What would you call a nutrition consulting business that focuses on the food allergy population (especially gluten free?) I have a few ideas but would love to get a few more!!
Please share any and all ideas below in the comments!!
A couple of weeks ago during lunch my co-worker and friend and I were lamenting our favorite East Coast farmers markets. Nina moved from Philly and loved her various farmers markets as much as I loved my beloved Dupont Farmers Market.
We took a little adventure down to the Dallas Farmers Market which, while different in almost every way was a nice little reminder of local food. Sure, this market is unique in that a lot of stuff isn’t local at all but Nina and I managed to find goodies that were in fact from around Dallas and the surrounding areas. It’s not perfect but it’s better than nothing!
One of the things I’m still adjusting to is incorporating my nutrition school work into my hectic calendar. In my old job there was no question that had I stayed, I could have done my schoolwork during the day. In my current job (which I love) that’s practically impossible. The days are just to full!
Imagine my delight that my handy dandy iPod Touch has all of my lectures loaded onto it and best of all, it’s portable! With me skipping the gym because of my stress fracture, I’ve had to find other times to get my lectures done. Good thing I carry around the iPod at all times; waiting in the doctor’s office or in the car are 2 prime “school times!”
On Thursday I had about an hour in between work and a special birthday celebration. Parked at a Starbucks with a cup of hot tea, I sat outside and enjoyed the DC-esque neighborhood and was able to tackle a few lecture segments!
