I'm up to something.

46 days have passed since I said goodbye to a windowless cubical in the corporate world. A difficult, scary, exciting and invigorating decision.  But the best decision I've ever made.  I worked in the retail world where I used to think a great outfit could put a smile on your face. I quickly realized that no matter what you put on the outside, you needed to be healthy and happy on the inside first. Meanwhile, I also came to the realization that I was allergic to dairy. (yes, that means I can't eat ice cream, cheese, milk, cream, or butter).  On the quest to cut it out of my life, my hunger for health and information on a diary free life grew rapidly.

Fast forward to today.  I am enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the official program started yesterday. I will learn about how food and lifestyle effect our health, happiness and well being. I'll also be trained on how to counsel other people to improve their life and reach their health goals.
The journey has just begun...
