Hello, lovelies! As you know, I am about to embark on the journey of yoga teacher training. It starts in 19 days! I'm feeling like I'm not adequate. That my yoga isn't "advanced" enough. That I'll be the "worst" yogi there. My yoga teacher assures me that these fears and worries are normal; that these … Continue reading A Whole Month of Yoga: Reflections
Hello, lovelies! Today's post will be short but sweet. Ever since starting this blog, I tossed around the idea of getting published on other sites, magazines, and other written word platforms. I was unsure of where to start and seriously lacking the confidence to do this. So, I just continued to write posts for my … Continue reading What Vegetarianism Is Not
They say the only cure to writer's block is to write more. So, I'm going to try. This feels like an oxymoron to me, because obviously if I didn't have writer's block I would write more. I have the desire to write, but when I sit down to write...nothing comes out. Have I run out … Continue reading Writing + An Existential Crisis
Hello, lovelies! First of all, I would like to share my exciting news! A few months ago, I wrote a post about my thoughts, inhibitions, and fears surrounding yoga teacher training.

If you're a … Continue reading Spring Cleaning My Relationship with Sugar
Hello, lovelies! It's March! It's so lovely outside these days. Spring is such a fun time of year - flowers, blue skies, everything turning green again, and warmer weather. I have always enjoyed taking long walks outside, especially with my puppy. Walking has become such an ingrained part of my well-being that I feel stressed … Continue reading Why I Stopped Wearing My Fitbit
Hello, lovelies! One month of 2016 is already over. How are those new year resolutions working out? One of my goals for the year is to complete (or at least start) a 200 hour yoga teacher training. I don't want to apply to a training until my LPC Intern hours are turned in, but now … Continue reading Am I Ready for YTT?
Hello, lovelies! Sorry for the lack of blog posts the past two weeks. The holidays had us in Pennsylvania, traveling after tornadoes, and party hopping New Years Eve weekend. Super fun, but this introvert has been exhausted. I spent a good chunk of yesterday on the couch, watching TV, recharging, and napping. (It was glorious.) … Continue reading 108 Sun Salutations
Hello, lovelies! Last week, I wrote about what depression is and some stats that go along with that. I've been reading the book Yoga for Depression by Amy Weintraub lately to go along with these posts, because honestly, I wasn't quite sure where to go from here. It's hard to say what works and doesn't … Continue reading Depression: How Does Yoga Help?
