Life Update #1

It’s time to check in and take a little breather.

Hello everyone! I hope you had a splendid weekend full of the magnificent throes of autumn. Halloween’s coming up and it couldn’t be more exciting. Is it weird of me to say Halloween is one of my favorite holidays?

Anyways, all of this autumn excitement aside, I wanted to talk a little bit about what’s going on in my life and explain why I haven’t been showing up as much on social media sites (though I’m happy to say I’ve been fairly regular with my posts despite being super busy). But that’s just the thing, life has been super busy lately. Between taking four classes which are quite heavy in their workload, being the secretary of Nutrition Club, working as a nutrition graduate assistant in the wellness center, and balancing a social life, my life has been a hectic jumble.

With all of this going on I do feel like I haven’t been as much of a presence online, and for now it’s something that might remain simply because of my current schedule (though when I have an available minute I do make every effort to get on Instagram and like all the things). But don’t worry – I’m still here! I haven’t given up on this blog, I’ve simply been swamped with all my nutrition-related things and trying to set myself up on the best possible career path of my choosing (I think I’ve found what I want to do by the way).

So don’t you worry forksofnature readers, I’m still here I just may be a little bit quiet for awhile.

24 Things I’ve Learned in 24 Years About Nutrition, Fitness and Wellness

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear Aprylle, happy birthday to me!

Hello friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend 🙂 My birthday was Friday, so I definitely enjoyed having some time off and relaxing a little bit before I go back to school on Friday (crazy right?!). How has summer flown by so quickly?! Oh, I know, because I’ve been so busy working, taking a class, etc. etc. Life story right? At least I’m really looking forward to getting back into the school year and enjoying my last year of the DPD work before I move into my internship (whoa, what?). And it’ll be my last year living on a campus. Ever. That’s so weird.

Anyways, this week I was inspired by this video by Karlie Kloss she filmed on her birthday and listed 23 things she learned in 23 years. Since this is a healthy living/nutrition blog I thought it would be apt to tailor it to nutrition and health specific things. What have I learned in all my 24 years about nutrition and health? Here we go!
