Birthday Giveaway!

March is my birthday month! So I thought I’d celebrate by giving… one free nutrition coaching session for a woman who loves travel!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a dietitian (becoming one was on my List), and every once in a while I post something wellness related, but recently, I’ve been combining them more in my business, and didn’t want you all to miss out!

I love helping people reach their goals and live the life they dream of. It killed me inside when I saw people in the hospital (where I used to work) having to give up their dreams because of something that would’ve been preventable. I want all of you to achieve a level of wellness that allows you to pursue your goals.

So here’s how it works…

🎈 Nutrition for Travel Coaching Session Birthday Giveaway 🎈

On March 15, 2018, at 10 AM Pacific time, I’ll use a random number generator to pick someone from the Confident Nutrition Travels! email list.

That person will get one free 45 minute nutrition coaching session, via video chat, where we’ll discuss their wellness and travel goals, lifestyle, and work together to create an action plan to help move to those goals.

And everyone who signs up will get first access to the nutrition coaching program I’m creating… and I’ll also send you inspiring wellness and travel info every week.

➡️ Sign up for the list and your chance to win! ⬅️

I’m super excited about this! Be sure to sign up before March 15, 2018, at 10 AM Pacific time!

What I hope you’ll get from this blog

For You

Dear reader,

How are you? After reading Lisa’s About page on her blog From Dream to Plan, I realized I’ve never been completely clear about what I have to offer you.

I love writing, but I don’t write this blog completely for myself. I write it for you and the other people who read it.

Here’s what I hope you’ll get from this blog.

1. Inspiration and ideas

I love the feeling I get when I accomplish a goal, whether something on the list or from another area of my life, and I hope that by sharing my enthusiasm, stories, tips, and ideas, you will take steps toward experiencing the feeling of achieving one of your goals too.

I also want to encourage your enjoyment and appreciation of life experiences both in and out of your comfort zone, and give you ideas of new things to do, whether it’s for a lazy weekend activity or a big, once-in-a-lifetime trip.

2. A new perspective on bucket listing (or someone with a similar perspective to adventure with)

I have three main principles that direct my bucket list experiences:

  1. Big or small, I like to celebrate the moments and experiences that I think are fun. While a few people have told me that some of my list items aren’t “real” bucket list experiences (I guess because they’re not wild enough), I believe that any experience someone really wants to do can be on their bucket list, regardless of how big or adventurous they seem (or don’t seem). It’s your list! Include whatever you dream up! Putting the big and small things on my list helps me remember that every moment is special, and that I don’t need big plans to make a big memory.
  2. I also believe in responsible bucket listing – no breaking the law or disrespecting other people just to do something that’s on your list. Living ethically and in line with my faith are my most important goals.
  3. Finally, bucket listing, while very exciting, isn’t the only thing or the most important thing in my life. While this means I make slower progress than those dedicated completely to bucket list activities, I appreciate having balance in my life, which gives me opportunity to have spontaneous experiences or to take a break to make sure my bucket list doesn’t become an obsession.

For those of you who feel the same, let’s do this adventure together! Sometimes it gets lonely feeling like you’re the only one. I understand that feeling, and I understand you wanting more than what you see around you. I’m excited that you’re part of this community and I look forward to getting to know you.

🙂 Shelly
