Officially a Health & Wellness Coach!!!

On Monday, October 29th, 2012 I started studying to be a health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Yesterday I passed my fourth, and FINAL, exam. I am officially a Health Coach.

Passed My Tests

Our “official” graduation date is Friday, September 6th. I will be celebrating that day by laying on the beach. We will also get our official certificates in the mail sometime during the month of September.

Non-Health Related Things I Have Learned During My Studies:

  • Don’t second guess myself
  • Always read and re-read test questions carefully
  • Taking notes via computer is essential for the way I learn now
  • Don’t procrastinate and get behind – it only puts more stress on me

What’s next? Get my business up and going. While I originally came up with “Lady Health Guru” as the name of my business, the longer I thought about it the more I hated that name. So, I have a new name and a new logo:

Start Living Healthy

Start Living Healthy resides at I even put a handy-dandy link to my health coach site at the top of my blog. Just look up – see the blue bar. Cool huh? My health coach website is 75% done and will probably always be a work in process. I need to create new marketing materials, order business cards, etc.

I have planned some downtime these next couple of weeks and will get everything going once I get back from the beach. I still plan to become a CPT (certified personal trainer) as well, but won’t start that til 2014.

How is your week going? If you could go back to school for anything, what would it be?

Have a healthy day!
