Today was my last day of work. It was bitter sweet as I enjoyed my co workers but I was becoming very stressed due to me working from home and taking care of Baby J. Fortunately I am lucky enough that I can have this choice.
I cleaned out my cube today, said a few goodbye’s and off I went. Freedom! Baby J and I stopped at the library again, a different, bigger and better one, and checked out some more vegan and raw recipe books and nutrition books. My next goal after we settle down from moving is to start earning my nutrition certification. While I have always had dreams of becoming an RD, I’m not quite sure I want to be in the hospital setting any longer. I have always loved to educate individuals on healthy eating while making it delicious and do able! The obesity rate in this country is out of control and it is only going to get worse. I want to help this number and make people aware and conscious of what they are putting in their mouth and body.
