I’ve contemplated nutrition counseling with RAWs Barb Biagioli for a while. I met Barb in class maybe a year or so ago. She always seemed intelligent, down to earth and had a great sense of humor. The more I spoke with her the more I realized that yes, I would actually take advice from this person. Oh and has anyone ever met Barb? The other selling point for me was that she is gorgeous, even now at eight months pregnant, she’s flawless. Who wouldn’t want to take nutrition counseling from someone who looks like THAT? I need her secrets STAT.
So I signed up. As my appointment nears I can’t help but feel anxious. Will she expect me to break up with pizza? Will eating healthy be too expensive? Will the five week session be worth the money?
This is a big deal for me. I hide Sour Patch Watermelon gummies in my center console so my husband won’t judge my sugar addiction. Until now, only my dog new about this shameful act.
I’m also pregnant. So what better time to develop healthier eating patterns than now? It’s been the push I needed to get my act together. And I need to kick this sugar thing before the Holidays. I’m excited to become more educated about foods that trick me with their catchy words like “natural” or “whole grain” or “low-fat.” I’m excited to come up with a consistent, healthy routine. I’m ready to change my perspective on food as fuel for my body instead of eating my emotions. Right now my emotions taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream. So good.
I can’t wait to write about my transformation in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
