Have you told yourself this before, “Today will be the day I will make a change! I will start_________ today?” We all have said those statements before only to find that we keep saying it but make no changes.
It is human nature to not want to change. We like the norm. It brings a sense of comfort. But if we are going to grow, better ourselves, get different results than we always get then we have to do the hard thing and make the changes that are necessary.
We can’t blame anyone or anything else for not seeing the change or not getting the results, if WE don’t make the change.
My challenge today is to stop saying you will make the change, and DO IT. Go ahead and do the hard thing, and make the changes necessary to get the results you want.
Double tap if you will commit to do hard things today!

Happy Monday my fab friends!
This verse struck me this morning. It is my heart’s desire that God would be within me, and that everything I do would reflect that. I want to be so connected with Him that you can’t tell where He begins and I end. I want the enemy to know that He can’t tear me down because the Most High God lives within me. I want to take on what God has called me to do with boldness and confidence knowing that I cannot fail if He is within me. He is equipping me. He is strengthening me.
This is my heart’s desire for you too dear friends. I want you to go out and do what God has called you to do with boldness and confidence knowing that God is within you and you cannot fail.
Trust in Him. Lean on Him. Press into Him.
Double tap if you proclaim that God is within you!
Resting in this verse today. I pray that we will hear and listen to His voice as He tells us to be still and trust that He is enough. Prayer Starter: Father God, thank you for being who You are. Thank you for being enough. Help us to rest in You. Help us to breathe and be still. Amen.
Do you ever forget to pick up ingredients from your grocery list?
I had my list yesterday and still forgot Bragg’s Aminos, and I didn’t realize it until I started cooking Chicken Teriyaki. Ooops. I improvised though and seasoned with sweet chili sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and onion powder. This turned out DELISH!
I love Fall and everything that goes along with it, especially the mornings. Yes, I enjoy my morning workouts (ok, so probably more so after i finish the workouts 😉), but there is something about relaxing even for just a few brief moments with a cup of coffee. It puts my mind at ease and relaxes my body before having to get busy with daily activities. And a cup of coffee really goes great with some Jesus time! 🙏 What is your favorite thing about Fall?
Have you heard Carrie Underwood’s new song Something in the Water?
It is one of my favorite songs right now, and I am not a huge fan of country music. This girl knows she has a voice that packs power, and the lyrics of this song are so powerful.
There’s nothing like being stretched right?
In life we are stretched in our relationships, our jobs, our finances, our faith. Just about area of our lives is stretched at times. But we don’t have to look at it as a bad thing.
Stretching is good for us. Just like it is good for our bodies to get a good stretch in during our workout time, stretching in life is good for us. It strengthens us. It grows us. It builds character.
My challenge for us today is to ask God to grow us and show us area of growth during our times of stretching.

Inappropriate or completely ok? I shared this over on Facebook this morning, because I was a bit upset over the fact that my daughter’s school called to let me know she was dressed inappropriately. I completely disagree, as I make sure she doesn’t leave the house dressed in such a manner. But I am curious, what do you think? Has the school system just gone overboard with school dress code policy, or do agree that “leggings” should be left at home?
Do you like to change things up in your workouts?
I get bored with the same thing all the time, so I like having a new workout each day. And I like adding moves that are challenging.
This move is a great move for your legs and booty. The added weights (I used 10 lbs here) add extra resistance for added burn. If you aren’t ready to add the weights, don’t worry, you will still get a great burn.
Make sure to keep your chest up and your knees over your ankles. If you feel too much strain in your lower back when using the weights, try a lower weight or don’t use the weights.
