May 2017 Favorites

It’s crazy to think May is officially over. I feel like it’s still 2016. How are we basically halfway through 2017?? June is going to be a very busy month. Ugh. I hate the word busy.¬†Everyone is so busy these days. I use to strive to stay busy, thinking it was a sign I was doing everything right. Now the word just makes me roll my eyes. It seems like we think we need to be busy. Especially my generation. Or maybe the world just wants us to think we have to be busy. Idk. It’s funny how much weight the word busy can hold.

And who doesn’t love a good behind the scenes? It’s like getting to watch something you shouldn’t be, but it being totally okay. I decided to jump into this blog series world because I thought it’d be fun for you all to see what a working nutritionist and soon to be dietetic intern (#rd2be life) eats in a day! Wednesday I worked at the Cabell County clinic. I’ve been traveling a lot lately (mainly to Cabell) the past few months as we hiccup through some staffing turnover. This puts me over half an hour from home, so going home on lunch isn’t an option. I have to make sure I have everything I need before I head out […]
