Blog and Life Update

Happy Friday everyone! And what a good Friday it is as I tell you that I’m becoming more serious about blogging 🙂 I really have a passion for writing and ministering to others through the written word, so I want to post more often and expand my number of lovely readers and followers.

Feel free to use the comments section to voice your opinion on what I should write about. After all, you are one of the biggest reasons why I am doing this!

I really hopped on the social media band wagon and made a Facebook page, and you can also find me on Instagram @fearfullywonderfullyme.

I also made a Tumblr! I really like Tumblr because it’s like a mini blog, and you can ask me questions easily. I think Fearfully Wonderfully Me’s social media presence will be a great way to express myself, keep you all updated, and connected!

You may see me post these links for a few more posts, as I want others to know that this blog is going viral (lol for bad humor). You can also find these links on my About Me page.

Now for some life updates!

I’ve been really trying to practice yoga regularly, and I definitely want to start teacher training this winter or spring! Anyway, I have been trying to get healthier in general considering my health issues. My body is definitely not cooperating with me, and it needs a little TLC.

So here’s my little collage of things that have made me feel like a total hippie lately. I have some Veggie Chips, which actually taste like regular chips, only they give me some vegetables the sneaky way since I have the palate of a small child. I also have these cute yoga shirts from Prana (I got them super discounted) that are adorable for everyday wear.

Recently I have been researching essential oils. I was skeptical at first, but I have been dealing with stress and anxiety lately, as well as fatigue and insomnia. So far I like them. The stress relief one really does have a calming effect and the sleep one is soothing as well. Plus, they are in roller ball form, so it’s like perfume!

And this is another huge part of my life. My dear friend Paige and I are getting ready for a craft show, and I am trying to pump out the jewelry like crazy! It’s a little stressful, but lots of fun.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend! I can’t wait for what the future has in store for this blog.

Thanks for reading! Please feel free to comment and share 🙂

Fitness Fashion/Exciting News!

I have some exciting news! This year I’ve been doing yoga on a pretty regular basis, and it’s helped me quite a bit when it comes to my IBS. It’s also made me stronger and given me focus. Something I didn’t expect was that yoga would help me to connect with God.

Just for the record– yoga is not a religion. Yes it was practiced by Hindus, but just like any other exercise/meditation, it can be adapted to bring glory to God! Anything we do can either be just for ourselves and a distraction from Jesus, or it can lead us closer to Him. And yoga has definitely led me closer to my savior. And now for the exciting news…I’m going to become a yoga teacher! And the best part? It’s through a renowned Christian yoga school! I haven’t started training yet, but stay tuned for more updates. 🙂

So today’s fashion post is yoga fashion! Actually, these can be outfit inspirations for any exercise. A lot of the brands featured are Victoria’s Secret or Roxy, but I normally get all of my leggings and gear at T.J. Maxx because it’s a lot cheaper there.

Yoga Cat

Leopard print is too cute (and fierce for the mat or gym)! Most yoga shorts are too short to be modest, but these knee length ones are the perfect length for spring and summer!

Calm and Serene

This pale blue color is so relaxing–good for a gentle practice or some night-time stretching. A good tip for modesty is to wear a light pullover over a tank-top.

Yoga in Pink!

There are so many things I love about this set. A long tank-top covers everything; just make sure it’s fitted so it doesn’t fly up during down dog. These Nike Studio Wraps are great for traction and ankle support (I love them too much). Plus, the ballet ribbon and outdoor flats keep it gorgeous and functional.

(Note: I am not being endorsed/sponsored by any of these brands. I just truly like these products or find them helpful.)

So tell me, what cute fitness clothing/gear gets you on the mat? How do you honor your body, the temple God gave you? Please comment below! 🙂
