Happy New Year to each and every one of you! Can you believe it is 2013!? I am telling you, time sure flies when you’re having fun! Well, with a new year come new ventures, new opportunities for greatness and a new perspective on life. I think most of us make some kind of “resolution” about our health, to lose a few pounds (or more than a few…), to eat better, to be more active, to run a marathon, try yoga, eat less fast food, etc. The list sure goes on. The depressing part is that most of us never actually achieve the goals we set out to conquer which I find to be incredibly sad and disheartening. I can tell you I’ve made a resolution or two in my day that I don’t think saw its way out of January. Can you relate?
I ran about a 66% success rate with my New Year’s resolutions for 2012 which I have to be honest, I am quite proud of. The two biggest goals of mine were to “Pay off the remainder of my student loans within 2012”…Check! And, “Do something with my holistic nutrition training…still unclear on what,” I believe were my exact words. We made our final payment to close out my loans on December 5, 2012 which felt pretty darn good and I open the doors to my nutrition practice TODAY, January 3, 2013. Ok, so I am starting the practice in 2013, but I have been working to get it up and running the last half of 2012. Still counts, right? Sure.
I admit I can struggle with achieving goals I create (I think I inherited this from my Mother darling), but I find it much easier to do when I have support from people around me. Whether it be my husband or my closest girlfriend, a co-worker or my favorite Barista’s at Stell Coffee (they helped me avoid dairy for a couple of weeks, thanks guys!) having someone to hold me accountable, to encourage me in my efforts and to hold me up when I’m feeling close to failure really, really helps.
Now, this is where I come in for you and those healthy “resolutions” you made for 2013. What better way to start off your year than with someone who can help you articulate, achieve and maintain your health goals? Please check out my site, alowellness.com, to find out more about Nutritional Therapy and Alo Wellness. I am offering a complimentary Health Consultation to all new clients! Here’s a little something from alowellness.com:
“Nutritional therapy is a gentle, prevention focused form of health care with an emphasis on education and one-on-one counseling. At Alo Wellness we take a science based, yet holistic approach to Nutritional Therapy. NT is deep rooted in the idea that true and lasting wellness starts with a nutrient dense, whole food diet, a powerful and natural medicine. We are programmed to believe that disease and sickness are inevitable; however, this is far from the truth. By providing our bodies with the essential raw materials, we are able to tap into the body’s innate ability to restore balance and achieve optimal health.”
I am so excited to be able to share this with you guys. The Lord has truly blessed me with a passion for people and health and I have been given the opportunity to go after my dreams. Thank you for supporting me here at The Nourished You and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
God Bless each of you in the New Year! Shine Bright!
