Two HUGE Announcements

wpid-20150630_141924.jpgOkay. We have some stuff to talk about everyone. Two major things really. SO grab a chair, take a seat, maybe get some coffee or a mug or tea or something, and let’s chat.

Yesterday, I flew up to Boston to interview for a job with Whole Foods Market and GOT IT. I decided to start searching for jobs closer to home two weeks ago and this job just so happened to open up the day after I started actively looking. It all happened sooner than I was expecting, but I had to go for it and I’m really glad I did! It’s a position similar to what I do now, but instead of teaching customers, I’ll be training fellow team members. It’s a little bit more low key than my current job (which is what I want/need) and based out of one store. I really haven’t enjoyed traveling between multiple WFMs and am really pumped to be focused on only one location again. AND its at a beautiful, new store in my favorite city on Earth. It’s staffed with all-star team members and I’ve felt so comfortable talking to everyone I’ve met from there. To say I’m excited would be a huge understatement.wpid-img_20150630_185833.jpgCalling my friends and family- telling them I got the job- AHHH it was the best thing ever. The sense of relief and accomplishment I feel now is just unbelievable.

And I start at the beginning of August so I officially have ONE MONTH left in DC! Holy cow, man. Let bucket list begin…

So you might be wondering, what does that mean for Wicked Healthy Washingtonian? I am heading back to my Bostonian roots after all- the “Washingtonian” aspect of my name doesn’t ring true anymore.

Well, for the past couple of months, I’ve been working on a new blog- mainly in my head, but more recently, actually live online. This new blog will serve as a more permanent space for my musings and everything I want to share with the world. I literally just took the privacy settings off the blog and now anyone can look at it— eeeek!

You’re probably thinking, WHAT IS IT CALLED?!

Well, you can now find me at Not Your Basic Broad. new blogI’m warning you now, it’s not health and wellness focused. It’s Allison focused. It’s more about me as a whole! This of course includes food stuff, recipes, and my thoughts on health and wellness- but it also includes restaurants, ALL food, music, sports, history, and travel.

It’s a blog that encompasses everything that makes me, me. Not just being healthy. Being healthy has truly become just another part of who I am.

I outgrew this blog a while ago and had been struggling to find a way to keep it going. I knew I wanted to create a new space that wasn’t as narrow in focus. I knew I wanted a blank slate- I knew I wanted a fresh start.

And I feel like now especially, with my move up to Boston, its just very timely for me to roll out my new blog and make the transition to writing and posting there.

SO. This marks the end of Wicked Healthy Washingtonian. GASP. Craziness, right? I’m ready to move on but still, this blog has been a huge part of my life for many years. I’m eternally grateful for all of the people this blog connected me with and all of the opportunities it opened up to me. This blog played a big role in me starting my current career and I’ll never forget that! For the many years where I was solely focused on eating healthier, learning about wellness, and exercising- this space was my life saver. It meant everything to me. The support and love that you all gave to me through this blog has been one of the most mind-blowing experiences.

I hope you guys follow my new blog and keep up with me there! I’m going to let Wicked Healthy Washingtonian exist in the interwebs for a while so everyone who wants to access my content and old posts can. But I officially will no longer be posting original content here.

And if you have any questions- send them my way.

In two weeks I turn 25 and I’m ridiculously eager to start the next quarter century of my life- especially with these two big changes underway. 25 is going to be great.

As always,

Keep it wicked healthy.
