Are you a people pleaser? Do you struggle with the “I want everyone to like me” syndrome? Dude, I can’t even begin to tell you how much of a struggle this is for me. I want everyone to be happy. I want everyone to like me. I don’t like conflict. I don’t like hurting people’s feelings. Therefore, I struggle with saying “no” to things I really should say no to, and I stress over things I shouldn’t.
This is something Jesus and I have to work together on a lot. I am not going to be everyone’s peanut butter to their jelly. Just isn’t gonna happen, and I have to be ok with that.
There will be people in life that just don’t gel with you. They don’t get you and don’t get why you do the things you do. They won’t understand your dreams, and they won’t be there to cheer you on. That’s just life.
Let the haters hate, and you just concern yourself with being great. Not for them, but for you, God, your family, and your friends.
Tag someone who gets you and is your peanut butter to their jelly!
There are so many myths when it comes to losing weight and getting healthy, and one of the biggest ones is “eat less.” I can’t even relate to wanting to eat like a bird (I think I eat more than my husband…for real though).
When it comes to being your healthiest and wanting to lose weight, don’t look at it as now you have to eat less than the blue jay outside your window. Look at it as you need to eat the right foods and the right amounts in order to give your body the right amount of energy it needs. Whole grains, veggies, fruits, lean proteins, and water should be staples in your kitchen, lunch bag, and snack packs.
What are some struggles you have when it comes to nutrition?
I am a firm believer in taking care of all areas (spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional) in order to live a truly fit life. And one of the most important ways to do that is to remain firmly rooted in the Word, allowing it to flow out of you touching every area of your life.
Working out and eating clean is great and it is important in taking care of your body, but if you neglect to care for your spiritual health, mental health, and/or emotional health, then you aren’t taking care of yourself to the fullest possibility.
Take time to invest in the total health of yourself, not just one area.

Did you know that you were created to do good works? That you are God’s handiwork? You are a masterpiece that He created with purpose!
You were created to change the world for the better. He put purpose in your heart in order to do good and impact the lives of other people for the better. How cool is that?
Think about it. You get to make a difference in someone else’s life that will improve their life! Your attitude can impact someone’s life for the better if you choose for it to do that. Your health can impact someone’s life for the better if you take care of yourself as you should. Your faith can inspire someone else if you share it. Everything you do has the potential to impact someone’s life for the better if you choose. Told you it was pretty cool!

I want to encourage you to stay focused today. Set your goals. Visualize your goals. Go after your goals. Give it your all and don’t accept anything less than your best.

Taking comfort in this verse this morning. There is nowhere better to be than in the Presence of God. That is where I want to be. That is where I want to live.
I pray you experience His presence today too friend.
The weekend is here, and that means it’s time to be a WEEKEND WARRIOR! I don’t think any of us wants to throw away any progress we have made this weekend. I know I don’t.
I am on my second week of my second round of P90X, and this move is one of my favorite moves to chisel away the “muffin top.” And as a bonus, it makes me feel like I could whoop some tail! Haha!
Once you have done it on it one side for 30 seconds, switch and do it for another 30 seconds.
And don’t worry about looking like Bruce Lee or moving at lightening speed, just do YOUR best.

Who else remembers “this little l fit of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…?” Even though it is known as a song we sing as children, it carries truth to it.
We are called to be the light of Christ in all we do. In our health, our jobs, our relationships. Everything about us needs to shine for Jesus.
Part of maintaining my health is so that I can shine bright for Jesus. I want to honor Him by caring for the gift He has blessed me with.
I want to encourage you to do the same my friends. Honor Him by caring for you health. Commit to letting your light shine in every area of your life so that others see Jesus in you.
Will you commit to this today? Double tap if you will!
Being an early bird is really not in my nature, but I have made it a priority in order to take better care of me. I know that first thing in the morning is the best time for me to get my workout in, so I commit to getting up before the sun comes up.
There are days when it is a little tougher to peel my eyes open and get myself out of bed. There are days when my workout isn’t as pretty as others (form wise). There are days when I want to skip my workout all together. I struggle. But I have made a commitment to myself, to God, and to my family to be in the best shape with my health as I possibly can.
So no matter how difficult it may be, I will commit to show up and get my workout in and fuel my body right.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to have the dedication or commitment. All you need is a reason to show up and the determination to make it happen. “Do your best and forget the rest.”

Did you know that you were fearfully and wonderfully made? And not just that, but you were created in the very image of God! How cool is that?
You have purpose. You have value. You are loved and cherished. God designed you out of His love for you.
He breathed life into you for a reason. You aren’t here by accident or mishap. You are here because the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords PURPOSED you here!
Celebrate that! Be thankful for who God designed you to be. Be grateful that aren’t like everyone else, but that you are uniquely you! Be you loudly and boldly!
Double tap if you will give God the glory and praise for making you with purpose!
