Being a dietitian is hard!

As some of you know I am a registered dietitian, traveler, groupie, wife, etc.  I have a very unusual lifestyle (thanks to my wonderful husband) that doesn’t allow me to have any type of routine.  For some this would be daunting and make them go crazy.  For me, however, it’s the life I couldn’t imagine being any better!  As I do travel a lot with my hubby I get to see a lot of very interesting things, try a ton of different foods, and get to have fun little adventures all over the world.  Here is where it gets tricky…how do I stay healthy when I have so many obstacles and tempting bad habits in front of me?  Well, let me tell you it is not an easy task. 

Being a registered dietitian has helped me immensely.  It has taught me that a healthy life with good food choices and exercise are essential.  I’ve learned how to take control and live my life the healthiest I can.  That said, life has taught me that making the right choice is hard and that the little voice in my head saying, “go ahead, eat those chips,” sometimes wins.   Even I battle with bad choices…I love food!  I love to cook and I especially love to bake.  I’ve learned through my studies (and many trial and errors) what makes food good and how to make my life healthier.  Not everything I make or eat is super healthy but that’s what portion control is for!  Everything in moderation is my motto. 

I hope to share some of my knowledge and experience with you to help you with making better choices and living a healthier life.  Sharing is caring (plus it may just help keep me accountable).  I am always up for questions and comments, so please feel free to share with me too!
