July 29, 2019
….well, July flew by and I just today, for the first time since the month began actually took a day off. And by taking the day off I mean I did not have an event or meals to prep for clients. What I did do was take an amazing yoga workshop that focused on back health; I took two naps; I took countless videos of my dog eating the remains of my well deserved 24 ounce seared ribeye and I spent about three hours studying for my nutrition class.
I’m not going to lie to you, July took a major toll on me both physically and mentally. Down two people (one to injury and one to vacation) coupled with a full book of catering, farmers’ markets, vendor events, a new consulting position, school work and making sure I took at least two yoga classes per week I am tuckered out. One thing I learned for sure was that I need to pace myself. I have an amazing team working with me and they definitely got me through the dog days of July!
Pausing this upcoming week a little bit to regroup, reorganize and have some kitchen maintenance performed you will see some changes come the first two full weeks of August. These changes will be a work in progress over the next six weeks with full implementation happening in the same period.
What changes you ask? All for the good, I promise! I will be using my studies with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and will be adding Health Coaching to my services. I will be working as a consultant with a new concept. I am adding to my team as well, stay tuned for a full introduction.
I guess what I am saying is that The Food Chick is evolving. We will still be a part of the Downtown Westminster Farmers’ Market, we will still cater and do vendor events. I am looking forward to working with many of you on your journey to health and wellness – to adapting your lifestyle to one that is good for the long haul. It’s not just about the food you put in your mouth it’s about the whole package, the things you DO in your everyday life.
I, we, look forward to being a part of Westminster, Carroll and Baltimore counties for a long time to come!
