Peace Out, 2010

Hey, Everyone πŸ™‚

It has been a rough week, but we got through it. Now, it’s time to relax and spend time with family and friends to ring in the new year! Thanks again for all your comforting words throughout the week.Β  I hope everyone stays safe…make sure you have a sip of champagne for me πŸ˜‰

My blog has evolved a lot over the year. First off I made the big switch from The Fitness Riot to here at The Fitness Dish!

My posts went from being all business to more about my life with some fitness tips and recipes along the way πŸ˜‰

I decided to give up eating meat again for the second time in my life, and started eating mostly a plant based diet, *shortly after this post chicken and all other animals started to make me cringe, I wasn’t able to stomach it, so I gave up most animal protein (aside from fish and eggs occasionally).

I saw the advanced screeningΒ  of Forks Over Knives that talks a lot about the benefits of a plant based diets, and the physicians that are treating based on them (coming out this March!):

…and I answered a few notorious questions about protein intake on a plant based diet:

….as well as some of the evils on dairy and why I gave up milk, along with Milk Free Monday posts and phasing out dairy as much as possible

**Remember though….it’s all about balance…and different diets work for different people. I never said I was perfect.**

Then there was the FUN STUFF:

I brought you recurring posts like Thirsty Thursday πŸ™‚

…and THE FRIDAY FIVE each week, with a couple guest posts to help out πŸ™‚

I brought you lots of Munchkin news

and announced my pregnancy!!!

….and our sneaky surprise news about whether to expect a onesy in PINK or BLUE??? πŸ˜‰

I *met* many other healthy living bloggers and formed unique friendships along the way πŸ™‚

Hopefully you all enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed posting and reading your feedback πŸ™‚

Looking forward to many wonderful things in 2011!

A Happy and Healthy New Year to you all!

What are you doing to ring in 2011?

Peace Out, 2010 πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for posting all the info about you going veggie again, I am trying to cut down on my meat intake and have been doing good with it so far but want to kick it up a notch in ’11.

    Have a Happy New Year! I’m going to be low key tonight, go to dinner and maybe have a quiet evening at home. I wasn’t in the mood to make concrete plans, so we’ll see where the evening takes me.
