Raise your hand if you’ve ever said you were going to start something and never did. Guilty. (both of my arms are waving in the air) This website is one of those things for me. I registered the domain name a year ago!!!! and never did anything with it. I came up with the name, NothingOnTheSide, during a conversation about food, of course. I love good food and ordering items in a restaurant exactly the way the chef has prepared it, with all the ooey, gooey yumminess, and nothing on the side. Fast forward one year later, and I’m finally doing what I set out to do. Overcoming fear of judgement, and holding myself accountable, is exactly what this site is going to do. My name’s Rémy, and I’m about to change my life.

“Right Now”  by Van Halen (I know. It’s Sammy not David singing. Click the link when you’re done reading) is my life song, although I don’t always apply it (read sentence one again). I love this song because it’s so empowering to do things right now, to not wait, and if you mess up, start over again. So, I’m going to start taking my own advice and get to it!! I’m starting the Whole30 program on September 12, after I return from vacation, and I’m going to use my site to share my experiences. I’ve been unhealthy, and overweight, for awhile, and I’m sick and tired of feeling sick and tired! So I’m going to put it all out there and hold nothing back. I hope people will come along with me on this journey of living a better life, putting health and fitness first, and doing so having an all in attitude, with nothing on the side. Because, as the song say, it means everything.
