“Let's be very clear: Strong men - men who are truly role models - don't need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.”
- Michelle Obama
Happy Thursday y’all! I think it is important that in our quest to become strong and fit, we increase our inner strength by encouraging and motivating others, whether it be strengthening their fitness journey or life journey. Everyone can use a friendly encouragement and motivation. Those of us in fitness know the value of encouragement and accountability and how empowering it is. Allow that to seep into every day life when we interact with people. Everyone has someone going through something that even the smallest encouraging words can make all the difference. Let’s help each other on our life journeys! Happy Thursday!
📝Next week we have a major event in our lives and so finishing this final draft is a true race against time. ⏰I’ve had to focus on family and have been unable to overcame recent restructuring challenges with my manuscript, but today, it HAPPENED - I broke through and made it to the other side! Hallelujah!✨
18-01-18 hello world
We had a lot of plans and our perfect date. Yesterday after a month of in and out of hospital, a few complications, endless tests, 💉uncertainty and an emotional roller coaster of a ride together with our Dr we had a game plan.......🚀
So I would be released this morning from hospital and felt excited🎉. Even thinking maybe I should squeeze in some more work, do some shoots, just to take the stress off over work and finances when I go on maternity leave...the so called glamorous life the boss lady😂
Life does not work like that. Plan all you want.... God has the best plan....
God already decided this is the perfect time. January 18, 2018...He whispered in Baby Kai’s ear and held his tiny little hands.
So I went into labour suddenly, 34 weeks pregnant.
Within an hour I was in theatre. Dad had to rush like crazy and just made it in time. I did not have time to prepare anything or even think about anything.
In super stressed out situations I luckily become freakishly calm😅
Then we just spoke the blood of Jesus Christ over everyone and baby Kai. In the theatre the Holy Spirit kept on showing me everything in three’s. Lights, equipment etc. etc. I saw 3’s. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Hugo was by my side and we were just sooo thankful.
Then 2min after 10:00am, beautiful perfect Kai Jonah was born!!!!!
Perfect!!!! I saw him quick and gave him a kiss and they took him to NICU. He is a strong, big boy, just like his father and brother.
So far lungs and everything is looking good. We will find out more, later. Hallelujah hallelujah !!!!!!!!!!🙏🏻
I immediately felt soooo extremely thankful and so joyful! An overwhelming feeling of happiness!!! Sorry but wait for it...#blessed ! 🙈👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Wow wow How can you not feel Gods amazing presence!!!! Hugo and I are truly grateful for all of the love and support we got this last month🙏🏻 Made me realize again the people that love and care for us! Thank u so much to everyone, you know who you are. You are all Godly people. Amazing and so kind. Thank u thank u! We love u soo so much.
So this is the day that God picked.
Мне кажется, у меня зависимость. Месяц назад я пришла к решению изменить свои жизненные приоритеты на этот год. Если прошлые 3 года я целиком и полностью была устремлена только к путешествиям, то в этом году решила замедлиться и заняться здоровьем, карьерой и изучением языков. 🎡
Я поставила себе ограничительный план в 5 путешествий (если помните в позапрошлом году я аж перевыполнила план в 10). Но руки так и тянутся каждый день посмотреть распродажи, найти недорогие билеты, увидеть новые места. И хочется полететь✈️, поехать🚊, поплыть🚢 хоть на край света! (кстати, там я уже была, но не откажусь оказаться опять и вам рекомендую).
С огромным трудом преодолеваю соблазн купить билеты на самолет вместо абонемента в спортзал. Пока держусь, но ещё один чемодан всё же купила 💼
I am so thankful to have partnered with shoptiques.com @6thboroughboutique_partner to get this beautiful piece of jewlery. My initial "J" necklace fits absolutely perfect. It's very lightweight and it's personable just for me. I will be sharing more pieces later this week 💞
This brings me to owning and loving what's yours. Check out my new blog "Love Yours"... link is in the bio
Most times we get so caught up in what others have that we become unsatisfied with what we already have. Stop comparing your life to others because you will never be happy. There will always be someone's house bigger than yours and someone's body that looks better than yours and someone's career that's better than yours... so love what you have and be satisfied with what's yours!!! #blogger#newblogalert#loveyours#shoptiques#jewlery#partner#moretocome#followourJournie#mommyblogger#lifeblogger#identifyyourselfwithyou#comment#subscribe#share 💞
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!” -Audrey Hepburn
Ohhhh Audrey Hepburn. You know just what to say. It’s all a matter of perspective. You can choose to look at something as “impossible” or choose to say “I’m possible!” If you discover your inner determination, no outside force can be a deterrent. We always find a way. Discover your strength to turn the “impossible.”
Been a little bit of a journey to get back to this physical point. With the spartan race being next week, I wanted to push myself to see where I was at. Round 2:
Run half mile between each exercise
-30 hanging leg/knee raises
-50 push ups
-30 sit ups
Sprint last mile
