Guest Post – A Q & A with the Prevention RD

Posted: June 22, 2010 at 6:00 pm

I always love reading Nicole’s posts over at her blog Prevention RD. Obviously, she is a Registered Dietician and she knows her stuff. Read through her Q & A, then go check out her blog!


1. Give a brief description of your blog.

My blog depicts my life as a Registered Dietitian and my struggles with weight management over the years. I believe in a balanced, maintainable approach to health and wellness and wish to share helpful information and recipes with readers. I also discuss gardening, green living, health trends, and marathon, racing, and other exercise information.

2. What does blogging do for you? Why do you enjoy it?

Blogging helps me stay up-to-date on all things nutrition. The field of nutrition is always evolving and I enjoy deciphering the truths and myths surrounding nutrition and diets. My healthy lifestyle is a daily decision that I can stay focused on by sharing my experiences, successes, and failures with others.

3. What is your favorite food? Nutritional value does not matter, so choose anything!

King crab!

4. What is your favorite type of workout? Why do you love it?

Ice-hockey. I’ve have been playing ice-hockey for 12 years and I love the intensity and agility required to move, stick-handle, shoot, and play position all while wearing hockey skates and 20 pounds of equipment.

5. What is a current goal you are working towards?

I am working on regulating my blood sugars. I was recently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and have some insulin resistance because of it. I am enjoying the challenge and it is a humbling experience as I work in diabetes.

6. What is something important that you have overcome, are working towards overcoming, or hope to overcome one day?

I have accepted myself at any weight. Everyone has a story, and while mine isn’t written the way I’d choose…I make lemonade out of lemons.

7. What is your favorite inspirational quote?

“Smile: If you can’t raise the corners, let the middle sag.” – I love to smile!

8. What are some things on your "Bucket List"?

I would like to do a triathlon, travel to every continent, and be a published author.

9. What is something you know now that you wish you knew 5-10 years ago?

I wish I knew how to manage money 5 years ago – I think I’ll be paying off my master’s FOREVER!

10. Name one crazy, random fact about you.

I end every work week with a cocktail, glass of wine, or ice cold beer. I know...I'm craaazy! 😉

11. If you won the lottery, what would be your first big purchase?

A DSLR camera and then a Lexus. I can dream big, right? 🙂

12. List 5 of your favorite things.

I’ll go with things that aren’t obvious – sleep, farmer's markets, fresh cut flowers, coconut, and country music.

Question from Tina…What is a current goal you are working towards?

    LOVE Nicole!! I am so proud of her for saying she has accepted her weight!! I can totally relate to her in so many ways and this is one of them. I may not be at an ideal weight, but that doesn’t change the fact that I am happy and beautiful in my own way. I want everyone to feel that way about themselves, no matter what weight they’re at!!!!! 🙂

  2. I love Nicole’s blog – very knowledgeable for sure:)
    Nicole, that’s so great you’ve come to accept yourself any way/weight. And I’m sure your trials with your own blood sugars helps you be that much better at your job!

  3. Great Q&A – so cool that she plays ice hockey! My husband used to play – i’d love to play (ever since the mighty ducks it’s been a dream!). My goal for now? Running! I’ve decided to really make it more of a priority, and not use weekend trips/busy weekends as an excuse!

  4. Nicole’s blog rocks my world! I’m working towards being healthy for the baby on the way.
