This week I took advantage of Instagram’s new easy-profile-switch feature and started a second instagram account. I wanted to have a place to share my progress and thoughts on healthy living, without annoying any followers on my regular account who many not be interested in that stuff.
I didn’t want to share it right away – I spent a few days to figure out what I wanted to get out of the account, and if I even wanted to keep up with it – but now I’m ready to share! A couple of y’all have already found me over there, haha.
Here was my first post, with an explanation of why I started:

Hello! I want to use this account to keep track of my fitness progress and also share healthy foods from time to time. I'm separating it from my main account so I don't annoy the followers who are there for other things. If you follow me on @keenertaylor but aren't interested in this, no hard feelings! We can still be friends over there 😉 but if you are interested in health stuff, WELCOME! Let's invest in our future selves and be inspired TOGETHER toward healthful living! . So here's my starting point: a month ago, I was coming out of a month of being bedridden because of #crohnsdisease. When I finally had enough energy to start being proactive, I did my first gentle yoga home practice – that was 26 days ago. I skipped the next day, but have practiced yoga every day since (24 days) and I can already see a significant change in my overall energy & strength. I'm still just a baby yogi but I'm excited about my newfound strength & confidence! . today I started @adrienelouise's at-home 30 Day Yoga Camp on YouTube. Today's mantra for #yogacamp is "I Accept." I accept where I am today and I accept the challenge to continue growing! . I promise all my captions won't be quite this long, btw. I'm just writing out my reasons for starting this so y'all understand, and so I can come back & read it if I need reminding why I started all this. . (This look on my face is called the Proud-of-Myself-But-Worn-Out-After-That-Yoga-Session grimace)(also, guess what my favorite color is.)
What you can expect if you follow:
- 1-3 posts per day
- not the prettiest pictures (just simple snapshots to keep record)
- photos of our bi-weekly CSA boxes (and other healthy foods)
- photos of me in sweatbands
- photos of my yoga poses (not many, though, because I’m embarrassed haha)
- #yogacamp daily progress reports
- long, reflective captions
- smoothie combinations
I’m keeping @keenertaylor for my everyday, and/or pretty, and/or blimey cow-related and/or Lulu pictures. I don’t think much will change over there. And if you’re not interested at all in following @currentlyveggies, that’s totally ok – that’s why I made a new account, precisely so that those who are interested can join and those who aren’t won’t be bothered.
For those who ARE interested, come join me! I welcome your future comments, questions, and ideas.
Hope you all had a great weekend! See you tomorrow.
