Yup. I am.
About two weeks ago, I began my studies at Alive Academy. This was the new little something I mentioned so you can stop holding your breath now – I kid, I kid. But now you know! Not sure why I waited a few weeks but I guess I was a bit nervous.
Anywayssss… in 18 months (if all goes well) I will officially be a Registered Nutritional Consulting Practitioner (RNCP) aka. a nutritionist, health coach, sports nutritionist, natural health practitioner, nutritional consultant… qualified for all that good stuff :) I couldn’t be happier!
It’s no secret that I love good-for-you food, love nutrition and love learning so this really seemed like the perfect next step. It is something that I had been thinking about doing, and wanting to do, for quite some time now. But it took me awhile to make the decision of where I wanted to study and when. I took time looking for the right program and situation, I was travelling and I also wanted to figure out some part-time work. Thanks to a few amazing friends, guidance from someone many of you know and my supportive family, I have officially hit the books.
I am completing the Nutritional Consulting program with Alive Academy. The program is broken up into two sections: 4 courses for the first section and 3 courses for the second section. The learning is done via textbook and article reading. I am evaluated through online tests after each lesson and a final exam at the end of each course. I am learning so much already – don’t worry, I’ll definitely share the knowledge :)
Since I graduated and entered this so called “real world” I have struggled with being okay with not “having it all figured out.” I’m a planner, turned flexible planner, but still a planner. I like structure. So not knowing where I’ll be working in July or when I’ll move out or when I can start a nutritional practice is scary but it’s life and life has been happy and wonderful. Okay, sorry are you puking all over your screen? Okay clean it. Clean now? Great. Don’t be afraid to do something you want to do. Yes think logically, weigh the pros and cons and maybe the decision can’t be made right now but don’t let what’s holding you back be you. Go after it.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend – eat delicious food, spend time with those you love, get a little sweaty, love your body and go after something you want to do.
Questions of the day…
Have you gone back to school/taken courses to pursue other passions?
Do you want to be my first client(s) when I graduate? I’m only sort of kidding…
