“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom...” For so many years I suffered without the word of God, only I didn’t know I was suffering.
•
It’s just the way life goes. We make choices and decisions and let unimportant things become important. Haughtiness seeps in as time marches on and before you know it, podcasts and self-help books are replacing the Bible (which, in all actuality is the only book a person would ever need).
•
There is absolutely no substitute for the word to God. It doesn’t matter if you have been a believer for a long time or a little and I was a fool to think otherwise.
•
I encourage you today, friends, whether you are a believer or NOT (because the Bible is for everyone!); to seek God through his word. It is just one of the very powerful ways in which He teaches us, changes us, shapes us, and molds us in to the person He wants us to be.

REAL TALK!! Well this is me this morning.....about 7-8 weeks of attempting to do my own reverse diet. Goal was to cut back cardio and add in more calories...cardio is cut more than I would like---none in the last 3wks cause broken toe ( did some yoga & abs this morning with the heat on bust) BUUUT my calories are up about 400-450 more/day. Weighed myself this morning and I am up + about 3lbs....meh...I am Much softer and feeling a bit Fluffy. However, I have much more energy & am improving on all my lifts. I like being lean but am really liking  how strong I feel too....gonna keep plugging away and try not to get too fluffy.....then set some new goals for 2018

Surprised we logged any decent miles today as we cycled up and around this canyon, 'cause I spent a huge amount of time gawking at the ridiculously beautiful landscape.  Major climb on route, 8-11% grade for a looooonnnggg time, but didn't care, had plenty of eye 🍬 to view! 🦄❤ Quick ROTB for a pretty sweet brick 🚴‍♀️🏃‍♀️🚴‍♂️🏃‍♂️

Occasionally even my prototype comes out a winner...my glaze game is on point, nothing crumbles apart while drying and the kiln fairies are on my side...thats usually when I allow myself to believe I’ve begun to master my craft! BUT then that feeling never lasts long, usually just long enough for the next kiln unloading. Pottery leaves no room for complacency ✌🏼❤️😜.

I love the burn🔥 from this workout!!
I haven’t done this booty and core workout since the summer....I love even more that I can keep up this time around😂🔥. #bootyonfire #alwaysaworkinprogress #activerecovery #progressnotpefection #stronghealthymama #strongereveryday #findingjoyintheburn #MsFits #hustleandheart #legs #core #booty
🎶Everybody’s talking about my .....loose pants, my loose pants....got my loose pants on...” Seriously this is becoming a problem...these are now my tightest pants and they have a good 2 inch gap!

This is a result from consistency...
With my food
With my daily nutrient dense shake
With my 30 min workouts
With checking in with my amazing group of ladies that keep me accountable 
Nothing magical or quick fix about it, just making simple choices everyday...choices that add up over time!

What simple choices do you make each day?

Over a period of time, those simple choices either positively affect you or negatively affect you.

Before, I made simple choices...choices like eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Choices like eating foods with ingredients I couldn’t even pronounce. 
Choices like eating carbs as my primary source of food. 
Choices like drinking sugary coffee drinks every single day. 
Choices like eating chips or cheez-its every single night. 
Choices that made my stomach hurt and feel bloated. 
Choices that made me feel tired and lethargic. Choices that made me feel embarrassed of what I looked like to other people, especially my hubby. 
I chose all these things and these simple choices added up. 
They added weight, they added stress to my body and they added self-doubt and negative thoughts about myself. 
These choices not only affected me, but also my relationships and my ability to do what God has called me to do. 
Now, I choose to do things a little bit differently!😊 I’d love to share with you how I manage my nutrition and fitness goals and choices daily! I’d love to help you see that you are already making simple choices each day...what choices are you making and are you happy with the results they give? ❤️💪🏼🙌🏼🔥. #alwaysaworkinprogress #strongereveryday #progressnotperfection#tightpants #toloosepants #findingjoyinsimplechoices #MsFits #hustleandheart #ineednewpants #stronghealthymama

I saw this on the scroll through and couldn’t help myself to share! I’m learning I don’t have to chase anything down that God has already intended for me!

We should all continue to #learn and stay clear of those that may think they “know it all” - because at the end of the day we simply do not have all the answers! #thursday #thoughts #alwayslearning #alwaysaworkinprogress #keepgoing #fitness #fitnessmotivation #gymgirl #fitmom #coach #trainer #hotyoga #healthylifestyle

“No cheating....you’re only cheating yourself!” I was able to get in some lower body today and this line struck me.

When I lean away from hard things, whether in a workout or in life, I’m only cheating myself.

When I run away out of fear, fear of failure, fear of rejection, or fear of pain...I’m only cheating myself.

Lean into the hard things, forget fears, realize God uses the hard and painful to grow and stretch. 
He continues to use this health journey to teach me more about Himself.

Another new beginning in a new Accountability group....more changes visible on the outside, but even more thankful for the changes He’s making on the inside. 💪🏼❤️🙌🏼🔥 #alwaysaworkinprogress #findingjoyindiscipline #consistency #smallchoiceseverydayaddup #stronghealthymama #progressnotperfection #dontcheatyourself #noSUGARvember #MsFits #hustleandheart #nocheating

Happy ✌️year anniversary my love. Grateful to have you in my life and so blessed to always come home to a warm meal. Spicy farmers market eggs. Buddha bowls. Stir fry (thanks for biting all the large chunks of broccoli in half). The big salad with homemade tahini dressing. All the "last bites". Farmer's market runs. And thank you for accepting my baby Ollie as "our kitty" with all of his menacing behaviors. Can't wait to travel and experience the other side of the 🌎 with you.

Working out and eating healthy is only “hard” if we think it is. .
.
Hard is not having energy to play with your kids in the afternoon. 
Hard is living off of coffee and vending machine food. 
Hard is crying in your closet because nothing “fits right”.
Hard is being uncomfortable in front of your husband.
Hard is your face breaking out and hair falling out.
Hard is feeling like crap everyday.
Hard is regret.
Hard is the mental war you have everyday with food.
.
.
I’ve had these hards before. 👆🏻
Sometimes I still do. #alwaysaworkinprogress
.
.
But we get to CHOOSE our hard everyday. .
.
Which do you choose? 
Ready when you are. 💕

Something I've learned over this past year is that the most important part of weight loss and fitness is to change the way you think about it. 
So I pledge to focus on long term health and becoming the best version of myself. .
Who's with me? Are you going to take the pledge? Join me! 😊💪 #pledgetohealth #alwaysaworkinprogress #thejourneyismydestination #keepgoing #mindovermatter #goals #enjoythejourney #weightloss
“You are amazing...Remember that”
This is my most favorite mug. 1. It’s huge😂. 2. It was given to me by my closest friend...someone who has walked beside me during hard things, kicked me in the booty and delivered hard truths when I felt like giving up, shares a love for food, coffee and all things ridiculously funny! I always assume I’m not amazing, always harder on myself than anyone else...thankful that God brought this lady in my life to speak His truth to my heart , to remind me that I am Amazing...and its not for the reasons you might think! Amazing simply because God made me, He loves me, and has a plan for this life He’s given me! I pray that I can be the kind of friend that she has been to me! Did you know that YOU are amazing?!? It’s not about who you are or what you have done....simply because God made you...literally made, He loves you and has demonstrated His love for you in the most amazing way, His Son, and He does have a plan and a purpose for you! You are AMAZING! And don’t forget that😊❤️🙌🏼🔥. #amazing #identityfoundinHIMalone #radicchio #welovefood #welovecoffee #ilikebigmugs #HElovesme  #alwaysaworkinprogress #strongereveryday #progressnotperfection #findingjoy #hustleandheart #teamveggietales #kilmerfarms #sweetginger #bestpupever

By no means am I trying to be a Victoria Secret model, let alone one as successful as the beautiful Adriana Lima! 
However, when I saw this post come through my IG feed, I remembered that I also had a similar photo and then realized how far I've come since the beginning of my journey some 40 lbs ago! 
Don't spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it -Start Now!! Think positively, exercise daily and eat healthy. Stay patient and trust your journey!

A healthy lifestyle not only changes your body. It changes your attitude and your mind. 
Some fun facts about these photos:
I'm 12 years older
I have 4 kids, she has 2
The obvious, sexy vs gym look 
Thanks to Warren @healthyvisionphoto and @kimberly_hoogendoorn for making me feel and look like a model!

My view for the moment....all snuggled up with Ginger and some hot tea with honey my hubby made.
Sometimes it’s hard to listen to our bodies. I had every intention of pressing play today on my workout...it took my hubby flat out telling me no. 
I know my body needs rest. I can feel that my body needs rest.
But sometimes resting is hard when you have ladies counting on you, watching you. 
So I’m going to sip my tea, hope the meds kick in to help my pounding head and lower my temp, and call it a night!
Tomorrow will be a new day❤️ #hotteawithhoneymakesitallbetter #sicky #findingjoyinrest #myvoiceiscompletelygone #thekiddosfinallygotmesick #schoollife #myhubbylovesme #hesakeeper #PMichael #alwaysaworkinprogress #strongereveryday #progressnotperfection #listentoyourbody #sweetginger #snugglepuppy

Day 1 of NoSUGARvember💪🏼🔥 I find it pretty funny that on my first day of my newest Accountability Group, one that focuses specifically on no added sugars, I was offered so many delicious sweets!!! I actually found myself starting to feel bad for how many times I said no thank you or declined a sweet today....why is that? 
On any other day, I probably would have sampled one thing, because BALANCE😂, but...I just did not want to start day 1 that way!

I made a commitment to myself and to an amazing group of ladies...they’re counting on me and I’m counting on them. They’re cheering me on and I’m cheering them on! 
So....onward and forward to goals, progress, discipline, a good nights sleep, and day 2!!!! PS....and  now I’m watching Christmas Cookie Challenge on the Food Network while I do some work🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ #alwaysaworkinprogress #strongereveryday #findingjoyindiscipline #itsoktosaynothankyousometimes #progressnotperfection #hotcocoabarchocolatebiscottibrowniespumpkinmuffinsicecreamohmy #noSUGARvember #MsFits #hustleandheart #accountability #stronghealthymama

When it comes to fitness, numbers are interesting. I haven’t stepped on a scale in months, but I have been tracking my weight! Early September, my 1 rep max bench press was 125#. After spin tonight, I did nearly 3 at the same weight. If I had a spotter, I think I would’ve made the last one... I just got scurred 😜 #alwaysaworkinprogress

So.....I picked up a pomegranate this weekend at Aldi’s when my hubby and I went grocery shopping!

I’ve never had one before 🤷🏻‍♀️ Now accepting tips/help on what I do with this thing😂

Are Seth and I the only ones who eat & drink their way through their vacations? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏼‍♂️ Being an overweight person I have mixed emotions about eating out so much and photographing my food when I’m on vacay. One minute I’m embarrassed to be so food focused and the next minute I’m like, “Eff it! I’m on vacay and this shit is good!” Measurements & “before” photos tonight 🙈then a new round of my #21dayfix 
Wish me luck. 🤞🏻 #foodiesofinstagram #eatourwaythroughcharleston #alwaysaworkinprogress #backatit

My style sense has always been lacking, I know. 🤦‍♀️ But too funny not to share.

I was just thinking this this morning. I say I know my worth, but still my actions prove different. Earlier this year I took a LYFT home from the ER at 4 in the morning because I didn't want to bother anyone. (Vay was with me too since I didn't call anyone to help me with her) when people treat me right I am always questioning why or repeatedly saying sorry or thank you and I love you as though I'm not worthy enough to be treated well. Finding it very difficult to compliment myself, only counting my endless flaws- its easy in an empty room to say "I KNOW my worth !!" But can you still say it and believe it when you are surrounded by people & it comes time to step up for yourself ? Ask for help when you need it? Simply say 'thank you'  to a well deserved compliment? Say 'NO' when you mean it and 'I love you' when you feel it? I had to check myself today since I'm constantly talking about "Knowing Your Worth" yet find myself not living it. When Avaiya says something negative about herself, I stop everything, look at her & tell her to take it back, & to now tell me 3 good things about herself. When she has a hard time coming up with 3 different qualities, I think to myself if I can even tell my 30 year old self 3 good things about me?! If I expect her to know her worth and walk in it, I NEED to lead by example. Tell me 3 good qualities you see in yourself !! Ill go first: I have a huge heart, I have a great sense of humor & I love to help others! Now your turn! #KnowYourWorth #WalkInIt #DoNotAcceptLessForYourself #LoveYourself #WorkOnYouEveryDay #AlwaysAWorkInProgress #WomenEmpoweringWomen #FellasKnowYourWorthToo #DaughterOfAKing #Royalty

This #motivationmonday post from @thehollywoodholland really speaks to us today ...who can relate? #truth #werkit #workinprogress
That was tough but fun!! 🎽😃 Don’t know what I’d do without my daily workouts! It took me a long time to get back to them after we lost Mama, 😇 but I’m so glad I finally felt up to it!! They’ve been a big help!#fitandspunky #fitnessmotivation #fitnessinspiration #fitnessfun #chalenejohnson #turbofire #alwaysaworkinprogress #youcandoit #youareworthit #justpushplay #girlswholift #fitnessaddict  #soulmateworkouts #guesswhatyourenottired
In about 6 weeks the picture to the left will be 25 years old! I often see women post omg .... I’m turning 30 , getting old ... part of what I write about and encourage women to embrace is the journey of life and that yes the numbers  go up but the process of designing yourself is an exciting, beautiful, empowering experience . Trust me the aged version of yourself, you’ll appreciate and love more. Moreover, we should be grateful we are here to experience and live it. We all  know  those who we were close to,  who never had the opportunity. Our culture / society has played a heavy role in creating this fear in women of getting older ... and I’m over here like “ Hold my Dirty Martini 🍸 “....... squashing societal norms has been my old stomping grounds since my existence. And it’s perfectly cool to laugh at this #aquanet hair moment from back in the day.
