Welcome to YFR // Why I Blog

Hello 🙂

Welcome to Yumfitrun.

Blogging was something I wrestled with for a while. Simply because I wasn’t sure whether it’s possible for me to blog in a way that is with humility and grace. But I assure you that that is my goal.

I am a Christian-believer. I love fitness and strive to live a healthy and intentional life that glorifies God.

The focus of this blog is on figuring out how to live a life of fitness, faith, health and wellness. My hope is that through this blog, by sharing my progress I can keep myself better-balanced between these things that are all important to me.

Yumfitrun is about keeping it real with God, working hard and discovering who you are, all while gaining physical, mental and spiritual strength.

Through God’s word, self-discovery and living with gratitude, I will aim to share both the highs and lows.

Criticism will always likely occur regardless of what we are doing or not doing. So why should I let anyone stop me from doing something I like just because I’m afraid of what people will think or say about me? As much as I’m doing this in hopes to help people in some way, shape or form, I’m doing this for me.

God uses people and their experiences or stories to glorify Him. I like to think He can and will use me. My prayer is that this little space on the Internet will be used in a way that is encouraging, sincere and edifies one another.

Writing and journaling helps me reflect and soak up my thoughts and feelings. Besides simply choosing to share my life with you, my hope is that you will help keep me accountable.

So honestly, I don’t know where this blog will go or what it will become in time. I realized if I keep second-guessing and trying to make it “perfect,” I will never have a blog. So here I am, learning as I go and excited to see what this blog will become.

One thing is for sure: I don’t want to lose sight of why I’m doing this. I want to be open, share my thoughts and help people, including myself along the way.

Here’s to the start of YUMFITRUN… xoxo
