I Am Alive And Ready For Change!!!

Hello world! So its been sooo long since I wrote a post and its so weird but feels great to write again. Its funny how life can direct us in different directions whether we like it to or not. A lot has happened since the end of 2011 that has caused me to drift from the things I loved. When my grandmother had passed away last summer it had affected me more than I even thought it had. I started to slowly not about the things that I had made a huge part of my life such as starting my business, fitness, and even my health. Sometimes we tend to be mask soo much by our sadness that we do not notice we sabotage ourselves. But thankfully with the help of family and friends I noticed that and slowly went back to my old self. Not a day goes by where I don’t miss my grandma, but I know in my heart she would want nothing but the best for me. Becoming strong and fighting my demons is not only for myself but for her. And I am happy to say I’m slowly becoming excited for the future.

Lately I have been really looking into what I really want to do and where I want to be in my life. One of the exciting things that is happening is the fact that I’m in my last semester of my culinary program! I’m finally filing for graduation next week and it feels great! Its so crazy on how much I’ve learned and grown as a cook and to become a chef and to really start working on what I love to do is so wild! I’m also getting a big head start on starting my own catering company and hope to be involved in a couple of fun projects this summer.

Another thing is I’m going back to changing my diet and revamping my fitness regimen. I have lately stop caring about what I put in my mouth and unfortunately gained the weight I worked so hard to lose! That is why I am going to start a new diet called, “The Dukan Diet”. Many of you have heard of it and I have researched and have become fascinated by the whole concept. I plan to follow it till I get to my target weight and hope to share with you my journey 🙂

Now that I’ve got my “blogging mojo” back lol I will be posting a lot more and hope to share you a little bit about my journey. I will post a lot of stuff about my classes, my Dukan Diet journey, and of course my fave recipes, I hope to inspire some people and can’t wait to start. So hope you all stay tuned 🙂
