How’s your health? Your health is what you make it. If you want to be stronger, lose weight, have better blood pressure or better cholesterol, or maybe improve your heart health, then you have to make the changes and take the steps necessary to make it happen. Nobody can do it for you. Nobody can force you to do it. You have to want it for yourself, and you have to go after it. Decide today that you will make it happen. πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ˜˜

This morning I was reminded through my quiet time that God slays the giants in our lives. He has never stopped being in the business of giant slaying. Just as He did for David, He will do it for us. I do t know what your Goliath is in your life right now. Maybe it’s financial. Or your health. Our your job. Maybe it’s a relationship or something else. But what I do know, is if you ask God to slay that giant for you, He will. Don’t let that Goliath intimidate you. Look it in the face and tell it your God is BIGGER and He is going to kick that giant’s butt! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ™

#latergram So thankful for my quiet time this morning. This day has been one of those days where you feel like you are a dog chasing its tail. Ha! How many of you can relate? πŸ™‹ Come on. I know you feel me. πŸ˜‰ Nothing like getting in a good spiritual workout to set your mind and remind you that even when life gets crazy, Jesus never changes and is always there.

It’s hard to believe I am a Mom of teenage boys who are in the “prom season.” These boys came into my life when they were just 12 & 13, and now they are graduating and looking forward to graduating. I am so proud of the young men they have become and are becoming. I love my family!

I use to be a Red Bull drinker. Coffee first thing and then Red Bull to keep me going. I will let you in on a little but if info about me: all the side effects and horror stories of energy drinks scared the pants off me, so I laid the Red Bull down and walked away. But then I was left with the afternoon crash until this cup of chocolate came into my life. πŸ™Œ I am especially thankful for it today with prom craziness. Both boys are going to prom and this Mama needs her energy and sanity. Who else is needing extra energy this weekend?

It’s #fititinfriday! Today’s move targets the lower abs. This move can be done anywhere and requires nothing more than your own body. Squeeze this move in while waiting for laundry, while watching your favorite tv program, or while the children nap. Fitness doesn’t have to be time consuming and it doesn’t require a gym membership. You can make fitness part of your lifestyle even if you have a crazy busy schedule and not a lot of free time. LIKE this post if you plan to give it a try! Feel free to SHARE this post too. 😊

There is always going to be the temptation to give up. That little voice πŸ‘Ήin your head telling you that you just can’t do it. Don’t listen to it. πŸ™‰ It’s a liar! You CAN do it. You are more capable than you realize at this moment. Stick with it. Keep going. Don’t throw in the towel. You are getting stronger everyday. You can do more than you could do yesterday, last week, last month, last year. You got this! Give it your best! Give it all you got! You have goals you want to achieve. You want to be healthy for your family. You want to be healthy for you. You are worth it! So tell that voice to shut up and get back in the game! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ŠπŸ’Happy Friday my fit and fabulous friends!

πŸ’•πŸ’– Four years ago I stood before God, family, and friends and vowed to love, honor, and cherish this man. I gave him my heart and he gave me his heart. Before God brought us together, I was a mess. Broken, hurt, and cold. I had forgotten who I was and felt like “damaged goods.” He brought a sincerity of his heart to me. He not only spoke words of love to me, but he also showed me what love was supposed to look like. He loves me as Christ loves the church. I feel safe with him. I am not afraid to be who I am. I can laugh, cry, pitch a fit, and just be my crazy self and he loves me just the same. We have had our fair share of challenges, but we choose love above it all. We choose to keep Christ at the center of our marriage, and allow Christ to work in and through us. I love this man with a crazy intense love and still get butterflies when he walks into a room. He makes me feel beautiful, strong, and confident. He is my encourager and my protector. He is the man who holds my heart and holds my hand. I can’t wait to celebrate many more anniversaries with you @pastorturner. You are my heart and I love you beyond words. Thank you for loving me like you do. πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ˜˜

Why do you strive for good health? One of my main reasons or “why” is because I believe my body is a temple. It is a gift that Gif has blessed me with, and I need to go it Him by taking care of it the best way possible. This means physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Being healthy isn’t just about measurements and numbers on a scale. Being healthy incorporates every aspect of your health. Taking care of your mind, your outer body, your inner body, your soul…every area. When one area is neglected every area will suffer. Take time to care for your temple. 😊 Happy Thursday friends!!
