How is it already April?
It’s no lie this blog space has been somewhat neglected. Between all the author stuff from last year with signing with being in Pitch Wars, signing with my agent, and working on revisions for THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO-SHOES plus the added stress of holidays, I haven’t had much time to think, let alone focus on my health journey.
But that also made me realize something– all my recent posts were about writing. WRITING?!?!
While there’s nothing wrong with that, it doesn’t really bode with with my happy, healthy life journey–what this blog is supposed to be about. Not only did I let myself get too distracted with my writing (which contributed to me gaining some extra pounds), but I realized I haven’t been giving proper attention to my other writing love– health writing!
So, this blog post is to not only say that I’ll be blogging again but that I’ll be blogging differently.
From now on, I’ll be blogging about my favorite Mrs. Healthy Ever After things like recipes, married life, and my health journey here and when it comes to writing, books, and my author journey, I’ll be blogging at my newly updated professional site: www.NikkiRoberti.com.
And yes, I’ll still be writing about writing because…well…I have author things on my mind like 99.9% of the time.
But this way if you’ve been a fan of my healthy life stuff and recipes, you can still get it here and uninterrupted by my author stuff.
So first update on the health…I’ve decided to try something new. When I lost the 30lbs in 2013, I had done it doing a high protein and low carb diet. However, my cholesterol was pretty high– a hereditary issue I hadn’t know about. And in 2014…I unfortunately gained a lot of it back after my grandfather’s death and then focusing on writing books.
So now, in 2015, in addition to realizing I’m probably lactose intolerant, I’m amping up my plant-based diet by focusing on natural proteins from the ground rather than meat.
I’m calling it vegan-ish. I’ll probably never go the full monty of vegan (at least not any time soon), but for the most part, I’m hoping to live a predominately dairy-free life and minimize meat significantly.
But for those who love my recipes–never fear! I’m still cooking meat for the Hubs. Posts to come!
Has anyone else gone vegetarian, vegan or plant-based? How has it been for you?
