I posted on Facebook yesterday that I had some exciting news to share with all of you...most of you were less than thrilled that I left you guessing.
Starting May 14th I will be going to school through Integrative Nutrition to become a certified Holistic Health Coach and Nutrition Counselor!
What is a Health Coach?
A Health Coach is a wellness authority and supportive mentor who motivates individuals to cultivate positive health choices. Health Coaches educate and support clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle and behavior adjustments. Proper health coach training programs and health coach certification ensure that Health Coaches know how to work with diverse groups of people and equips them with the tools necessary to best fit the needs of their clients.
As more and more awareness is given to preventative care, health coaching is seen as a vital aspect of creating healthy lifestyle changes. Health Coaches are becoming recognized as essential and integral parts of people’s health and wellbeing. Not only is there a shift to live healthier lives, people are finding that helping others become healthier makes their lives better too.

I really cannot wait to help others find their own happiness through healthy eating!
This is something I am so passionate about and seemed like the right move for me at this time.
Here is a little preview of what I will be offering with my services:
One on one OR Group Nutrition Counseling
Cabinet Clean Outs
Food Shopping Trips
Cooking parties are going to be available later this summer and I will start taking clients this November!
When I "graduate" I will have a certification that allows me to have my own business as well as work in schools, gyms, spas,doctors offices etc.
I am so excited to start another journey with all of you! You are the ones that made me want to do this. THANK YOU!
In addition to getting my Health Coach/Nutrition Counselor certification,
I will also be the first health & fitness blogger for the Babylon Village Patch!
I will be making videos (roughly) once a week that will be on their website, so send me ideas of what you would like to see!
As you can tell things are changing and growing really quickly and it really is all thanks to my readers.
You all have motivated and supported me since I started this blog last June.
I also want to take the time to thank my fiance for always pushing me to better myself no matter what it takes, and for my parents who supported me 100% in this decision, they all gave me the final push to make this change.
I am proof that you can do anything you put your mind to as long as you JUST KEEP SWEATING
