I have certainly learned a lot about myself; about what I do & don't like, how to balance what I eat with how it makes me feel and what really doesn't taste good together. It's one thing to indulge in a guilty pleasure when you think that no one is looking, but when it shows up on the weekly WIAW post or the evidence is blatant in a weekly plastic tally I know that someone else knows. I'm accountable to you whether you know it or not. You keep me from eating things that a "good nutritionist" shouldn't eat sometimes. So thank you for that.
As we head into the colder parts of the year, by nature there is less and less natural light (especially in our house!). Since starting this blog, the photography has always been my weak point. And my writing skills (Mr.C I'm blaming you for my poor English 12 marks), but those have certainly improved since this time last year. I am certainly going to be working on these. Gone are the days of stepping outside to take a decent photo in the sunshine. A light box is certainly on the agenda- we'll see how it works out!

Next month I'll be focusing on maintaining my newfound eating habits and supporting a daily yoga practice with them. Many days in my September Yoga Challenge were painful because I wasn't feeding my body enough. I just didn't have it in me to do anything more than meditate some nights. I want to have enough gas in the tank for some sort of physical practice every day in the month of November. I'm a nutritionist for goodness sakes- I know how to eat properly! In fact, people pay me to tell them how to eat properly (easier said than done I suppose?) I'd best be practicing what I preach or I'm in big trouble!
I hope that my wee little blog can continue to grow as it has been (I've got plans... ) There will always be space for changes on SlightlyIrritating&Inconvenient, just as there must always be space for changes in our lives. And just as there will always be changes in my diet and in my beliefs as a nutrition professional. Maybe one day our little household will be grain-free, maybe paleo, maybe vegetarian- who knows, but what I can tell you is that this blog will follow it.
I hope you do too.
