Do what you LOVE

by - 11:26 AM

When I launched The Fit Girl's Kitchen in January of 2013, I had no idea what the next 12 months had in store for me. This blog was simply meant to be a creative outlet for sharing my healthy recipes and fitness tips.

Something amazing happened during that time - I found my voice, I identified my passion. To be perfectly honest, I was surprised that people actually wanted to hear what I had to say. I started getting asked for advice and guidance. Something clicked and I realized - I could help others and share my love for living a healthy, happy life as my JOB.  But how?

Suddenly, doors started opening left and right - and I began walking through them. A random interaction on twitter led me to a local group of like-minded, amazing women and I was introduced to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

I will graduate with my certification as a nutritional health coach this spring and be licensed as a holistic healthcare practitioner.

Last August, my yoga instructor told me about a teacher training she was planning in Bali. Would I like to go?

I leave for Bali in two weeks and will return mid-march with my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher certification.

So what does this mean for Fit Girl's Kitchen?

After I return from Bali, I will be focusing full-time on building my new venture, FitGirl Wellness. Leveraging the momentum from FGK, I will be offering nutritional health coaching and private yoga instruction through FGW. I am excited, scared, thrilled and nervous but confident that I am ready to begin this next chapter.

So yes, this means that I have officially quit my job (!!!!).

After eight years in corporate america - the last four at an absolutely amazing software company in Chicago - I have given my notice, hung up my hat and traded it all in for a MacBook, yoga mat and pure blind faith to pursue my passion.

As Steve Jobs so eloquently stated:
Well, I've found it. I know this is what I am meant to do and I am so unbelievably thankful that I am in a position with the freedom and support to take this leap.

FitGirl Wellness will launch April of 2014 and I will begin taking clients for my six-month health coaching program when I return from Bali. (more details on this later!)

Thank you for all of the wonderful support you have provided to Fit Girl's Kitchen! Don't worry the blog isn't going anywhere - if anything I will have even more time to post, update and fill your newsfeeds with pictures of kale.
