March is National Nutrition Month in the US and I thought it would be great as a Healthy Eating Champion at Around the Plate, to get involved and answer some questions on my own eating habits. I’m hoping that it will benefit some of you on your journey.

Today March 8th 2013 is International Women’s Day a day to officially acknowledge the contribution that you and other women in your life make on a daily basis.

Some of you already know that I’m a fan of wellnesschat on Twitter every Thursday at 8pm ET started by Sarah Stanley, just search on the hash tag #wellnesschat. It focus’s on various aspects of your health and fitness and I’m looking forward to getting back involved.
Some weeks ago Jill Coleman was the expert speaker on fat loss, I’ve been a fan of Jill since being introduced to metabolic effect by Lincoln Bryden, head to her web site to know why and you can also catch her on Twitter.

In this way I can share with you all what I would have contributed, Jill and Sarah’s expertise and that of the other participants in the chat.

Staying healthy at any time with life’s pressures can be quite challenging and this is especially true during the festive season. There’s the constant round of sweet treats to tempt the palate at work, the office Christmas party, client functions and your own private get togethers. Whilst out shopping the air is filled with sweet edible delights, which are strategically placed close to the shop entrance for you to feast your eyes on and subsequently pop into your shopping basket.
