I Passed!!!!!

Hi Friends!!

I am happy to announce that I passed my RD exam!!!

You know what that means, right??

Of course you do!  It means that I am going to hold myself accountable for doing weekly nutrition-related posts!  They will be posted every Wednesday morning as a middle-of-the-week nutrition reminder.

I also got my first job as an RD (registered dietitian) at Baxter healthcare.  I will be on their Be Well team to help with health promotion programs for Baxter employees around the world!  Pretty cool job, I'd say!  I am also really excited to announce that I will also be opening the doors to my own private practice!  In addition to having a part-time job at the local park district, I am also starting my own business.

This is where I need your help!  Help me in naming my business!  The winner will receive a 5 flavor sample pack of Shakeology!

Here's some criteria:

  • easy to pronounce and remember
  • catchy
  • focuses on nutrition and yoga
  • holistic
You can submit your idea in the comments below, or share it on my Facebook page @lifenutritionyoga

The first post for this blog will start tomorrow and will be tips on how to enjoy your Independence Day foods and drinks while keeping your body healthy!

New Website Coming Soon!

Ok, you caught me...I changed the name of this blog without letting any of you know...and I apologize...

But, I have some really exciting news!!

I will be sitting for the national registered dietitian exam on June 19th!!

That means, I will officially have the letters RD after my name and can practice as a registered dietitian!!

Ok, enough exclamation points, sorry about that...haha.  The point of this post is to let all of you know that upon passing the exam, in addition to finding a full time career, I will also be starting a private practice right here online!

This new business will be called Life. Nutrition. Yoga (obviously) and will include weekly nutrition or yoga-related blog posts...yes, I mean weekly...and possibly even a YouTube channel in the future.

Come July, I will be open for business in private or group yoga sessions and nutrition counseling either in person or via web cam.  So, if you haven't already, subscribe to this blog to stay up to date and I will let you know when the website is up and running. (FYI, the weekly postings will begin once the website is up...after my exam...).

If you'd like, leave a comment with some nutrition or yoga topics you would like for me to discuss here.  I read all comments, so let me know!
