Hi and welcome to candlefit!
My name is Abbey. In the last seven years my husband, Daniel, and I have lived in Indiana, Arizona, Hawaii, California, and now North Carolina where we intend stay.
I write primarily about faith, fitness, and food – occasionally about something else entirely. Those posts are just for fun.
What’s the deal with candles? In large part, they represent faith. Candles have long been used to symbolize the presence of Christ in our lives. They have another significance to me, though. Growing up, my mom always lit candles for family dinner. Now, in our house, food and candles just go together.
Favorite verse: Whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow. For when your endurance develops, you will be strong in character and ready for anything. -James 1:2-4
Favorite candle scent: if subtlety was a scent, that would be my favorite. Less is more, people.
When it comes to fitness, I go through phases – from high intensity cardio, to endurance, to weight focused, to plain old low impact walking. I dabbled in personal training for a short time, and these days, I’m enjoying “maintenance” mode over peak performance.
Favorite workout right now: 4-7 mile run plus pushups and abs
Favorite gizmos: Fitbit Charge 2 & old school Garmin Forerunner watch
Regarding food, I’m no gourmet chef, but I think about food A LOT, and I like to experiment in the kitchen.
Favorite foods: quinoa, avocado, eggs … also peanut butter, obvi.
Least favorite foods: cream cheese, sour cream, olives … also mayo.
Favorite FoodNetwork show: The Kitchen
