The Best of 2017 … Year In Review

Happy New Year flat lay | Year in Review 2018 | Marissa Vicario

Happy New Year! I’m back from an extended trip to the UK and Dubai and what’s a new year without a 2017 year in review post? I acknowledge this is slightly delayed, but better late than never! I think we can all agree that 2017 had its own challenges. From a personal and professional standpoint, I accomplished a lot and for that I’m grateful.

I’m not big on resolutions and I don’t necessarily view a new year as a time to “start over.” I consider my life to be continuous and every day I try to improve. Do I have goals for 2018? Yes, more so intentions, but I don’t weigh them too heavily because I know life happens and much of what I will learn and accomplish this year, may be out of my control. 

So, without further adieu, these are my top six most memorable moments (personal and professional) of 2017 …  

Memorable Moment #1: Barre Teacher Training

Most of 2017 was dedicated to becoming certified as a barre instructor at The Bar Method in Soho. It was hard work and consumed much of my year, but I’m so proud of the accomplishment and am loving teaching classes. If you’re in NYC, come take class with me! Read more about my training here.

Memorable Moment #2: Two Years of Marriage 

In March, I celebrated two years of marriage to the love of my life. We took a trip to Vail, Co. for the occasion and I low-key wrote this post on healthy relationships that I was too self-conscious to share at the time so I’m sharing it now.

Memorable Moment #3: Croatia, Amsterdam, Barcelona 

Over the summer we took an epic trip to Amsterdam, Croatia and Barcelona. Barcelona became my new favorite city and I recapped our short 24 hours in Amsterdam here. I was impressed with how easy it was to eat healthy there.

Memorable Moment #4: Expo East and The Influencer Summit

I was invited to the New Hope Blogger Influencer Summit and as a result, attended my first Expo East. I built some solid connections and discovered many impressive brands committed to healthier, more sustainable food. Read my recap of the weekend here

Memorable Moment #5: Nutrition Workshops for Emblem Health

In conjunction with their awareness campaign for open enrollment, Emblem Health contracted me to teach a series of nutrition workshops around New York City. I taught almost 20 workshops over the course of a month and loved it. Teaching nutrition and wellness is rewarding!

Memorable Moment #6: Running a 15K

After a less consistent-than-usual year of running, I decided to challenge myself (on 4 weeks notice) with a 15K in December which ended my year of running on a high note. It was my first time running a race of this distance. Read about the snowy race and my training in this post sponsored by Mizuno. 

I know I was on Instagram more so than the blog this year (read why here), but expect more consistency this year in addition to a re-brand. Wherever you’ve kept up with me, a sincere thank you for sharing the year with me. I wish you lots of health, joy and love in 2018!
