This is my very first blog! I have been wanting to start a blog for quite a while now. The purpose of my desire to regularly post rantings really has to do with my lacking creative outlet at the moment. I was once upon a time a journalist. Now I'm in sales, so I'm hoping this will allow me some creative release.
I also decided to finally start this because I want to document my journey to achieving optimum health. Over the past year, I have encountered a few health issues which include insulin resistance (or pre-diabetes), food allergies and ovarian cysts. After doing quite a bit of research, I have found that, though I cannot control everything, I have had a large hand in my issues due to my diet and physical activity. The scary thing is I did not have a terrible, abusive diet by American standards. In fact, a lot of people I know have always seemed to perceive me as a "health nut". However, here I am, facing a possible unhealthy future because of my diet.
I will be addressing my diet in the next few months and sharing tips, recipes, etc. that I have discovered during my research.
But- I do not intend to be a blogger who simply writes about my health. I want to share the more colorful side of me as well, so you will also be catching some extras on DIY projects, art, film and other fun parts of life (not that optimum health and nutrition isn't important, or fun, but I can appreciate that not all people have the same zest for it that I do).
So, in closing, I look forward to sharing my life and inspiration with you in the future. :)
