You’d think after a month of not writing posts, I’d be bursting at the seams with things to say. But I’m not. Maybe it’s just a matter of getting going again. But it also may be that my mind is forward focused, and I’m just not too sure what to say about things at the moment.
It has been a tumultuous month, hackers aside. Biggest on my list was my son’s departure for college, the last chick to fly the nest. Incredibly sad but also marks the beginning of a new phase of life for both of us — well, three of us, as my husband is part of this. :) Through my tears, I’ve chosen to focus on the opportunities this new phase of life presents for all of us. It’s a good thing.
I also achieved a rather big milestone in terms of birthdays. I’m celebrating by embarking on a new educational effort. Next week I’m off to the conference “Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice,” presented by the Institute for Functional Medicine. Functional medicine constitutes a new approach to health care, one that examines the body as a linked physiological system that is influenced by environment and genetics. (Uh, duh.) Individualized nutrition is central to the approach as well as an overall healthy lifestyle. In my — and many others’ — opinion, functional medicine presents the best opportunity for true wellness for an individual who is experiencing health challenges.
I’ll be learning a lot, and sharing much of it here on A Weight Lifted. I hope you’ll be as excited to learn about it as I am.
