Spent the 4 years prior to this August sitting down, in a lab with no windows, running science experiments that stressed me out, for scientists that were constantly stressed out and had no idea what a 40 hour work week was. My only option for food if I didn't bring my own was Chic-fil-a, pizza and hospital food that no healthy person, let alone sick people should ever have to even look at.
Now I'm a first year grad student working towards a M.S. and RD certification because my old life literally would have killed me. Also pursuing certification as a personal trainer so I can make being healthy and helping others get healthy my career.
Sometimes you have to be backed into a corner to really look at your life and make the changes necessary to get where you want to be. My new career will be pretty damn paleo.
