Life Lately

March 27, 2017

Happy Monday, friends! (I know, not nearly as exciting as Happy Friday but.....)

I figured I'd share a little life update for anyone out there who is curious to know what I've been up to and why posts have been few and far between.

For weeks, I had a "goodbye" blog post in the works because I was planning to stop blogging. Why?

The short answer: life has gotten very busy, both in a good and bad way. And there have also been some pretty major curve balls thrown my way. Needless to say, I cried way too many times on the phone to my mom each week, telling her about my upsetting days, doctor visits, frustrations, and the fact that I just didn't know how to handle everything. Working out has always been my stress relief, but there were many days I skipped a sweat session.

Between work, side jobs, gym time and such, I felt like any free moments I did get, my mind was spinning over blog content. Planning posts, writing posts, taking photos, and feeling like my work wasn't good enough.

As a result, I cracked under pressure and stopped blogging. I am human after all. After realizing just how much time I put into this hobby, I needed to let it go for a bit in order to breathe and focus on other (more important) things. I immediately felt a weight lifted off me by not having to worry about getting any blog-related work done. And I had actually planned to stop blogging at that point.

However, what I didn't anticipate after a few weeks was that I realized I missed blogging and sharing my fitness journey, outfits, yoga diaries. I love this little blog and want Naturally Me to continue to be an outlet full of fun, helpful, and motivating content.

With that said, I'm still planning on blogging as much as possible. I have several posts and collaborations coming up that I'm so excited about, but in the meantime you can catch up on my latest posts below:

~ How to Jump-start Your Yoga Practice (beginner yogi and beyond!)
~ My favorite athleisure items, including the most comfortable Nike sweatshirt
~ Touring the National Gallery of Art with Museum Hack

(As always, if you want to see any specific content/posts - please let me know via blog comments or Twitter! I'd love to hear from you!)

Good news: there's always light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm very excited to share that I'm taking a huge step toward one of my goals this year! At 31 years old, my interests and passions have drastically changed, so I'm working on a new career focus ;) If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (kelllybelllly), you've probably figured it out by now, but I hope to be able to share more in a few months. I want to have a career that I truly love so I'm making that happen for myself.

THANK YOU for supporting Naturally Me. It's my goal in the very near future to share much more fitness + nutrition-related content to help motivate and inspire you every single day. Because we all deserve to live a naturally fit and fun life! ;)
