Hi friends! My last post was in April! Holy smokes! I’m not even sure how many people are still reading here. I obviously took a break from writing. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to write, but rather, I didn’t make the time to write. But the truth is, I missed it. A lot. So, I’m back and will be posting more frequently. But, this time my posts will probably be a little different.

As you can see, Operation Nutrition has undergone a make-over.

Not only did I want to make-over the appearance here, but I also want to change up the content a bit. I feel like I’m at a different place in my life than I was when I first started blogging in 2010.

I still have the same passions I had when this blog started. I’m most definitely still into nutrition, fitness, and all around healthy living (probably more now than ever since having a baby). But, as we all do in life, we evolve. My plans for the blog are to include all of the same topics that I’ve always written about, but sometimes I will also include my love for essential oils and random posts about motherhood. Another aspect that will be a little more different here will be that I will write more “openly”. Over the past 6 years, I’ve also grown in the sense that I no longer worry about what others think of me. Let me explain, I felt like when I first began blogging, I censored my own posts (for fear of unwanted criticism). For instance, if I posted a recipe that wasn’t 100% nutritious or “clean”, I worried that I wasn’t being “healthy enough”. If I posted that I was using a product that wasn’t completely toxic-free, I worried that people would say I’m a hypocrite since I write about my journey using nontoxic products. And so on. When I started to censor my own writing, blogging wasn’t enjoyable anymore. It was almost a chore.

I was always honest in my blog posts, but I always “had a wall up” (which was exhausting).  Now that I’m older, I realize that I no longer need to censor my work. I am who I am and I love who I am. I’m not perfect and I will never claim to be. I will feature recipes that I love (even if they are not the healthiest options). Operation Nutrition is a place for me to share the things that I love and my personal journey finding that healthy balance in all aspects of my life.
