Eat To The Beet: Since we're here I'll talk about the blog first. I love blogging and I love the blog community and my blog friends. When life gets busy and I'm stretched for time blogging gets put on the back burner. When that happens I really miss it and get bummed out. I'm hoping a more structured approach will help. I'm going to try out a posting schedule. Maybe Monday, Wednesday, Friday? And if that's too much I'll switch to Tuesdays and Thursdays. And I want to have more food journal posts ("What I Ate" style).
Vida Vegan Con: Yep. VVC is in Portland this year. I'm in Portland, and I have a ticket. So excited! And they just posted the schedule for speakers. I'm planning my weekend already. Who else is going to be there?

Grad School/Career: I will finish my first year of grad school in August, and fly back to Kentucky for orientation to year 2. I plan on continuing to enjoy my program and classmates and do well in my courses. This is my dream job. I feel lucky to be doing the work. I'm looking for opportunities to get experience in community/public health, women's health, and health promotion.
Travel: Exploring new places is one of my favorite things. I plan on taking at least one fun trip to a new place this year. Where will it be???
Health: As always, I want to do whatever I need to do to feel my best. Last year I remained vegan, ditched gluten, and incorporated more greens and whole foods into my diet. This year I plan on getting tested for celiac disease and following a more nutritarian way of eating. I'd also like to do more yoga this year and do a better job of taking care of my back.
Balance: So this is the theme for my 2013. It's easy to get sucked into one area of life and spend every ounce of time and energy there. Sometimes I have tunnel vision when it comes to projects, interests, and goals. My hope for this year is to work on balance, break things up, spread my energy around a bit and keep myself from falling into the black hole of (fill in the blank). I plan on a nice mix of work, school, and play.
