Hello lovelies! I hope your week was amazing and you sparkled among the crowed. For the workout this week, I'm encouraging you to combine all 3 weeks. That's right!! You'll love hate me by Wednesday, but you will feel amazing.
I also wanted to encourage you. My whole life weight has been an issue. I had to learn to love myself in Christ before any of my goals ever stuck. I've been blessed with some amazing friends, and coaches along the way, but I had to hold on to the value that I have in Christ, not the world. No pill or powder will give you that. Hard work, determination, and knowing that God designed you for a reason is what will get you through. I had to overcome my poor relationship with food, know my bodies limits, and get my heath in order. But the thing that made the biggest difference, not giving up. I had days where I couldn't even get out of bed because of heath reasons, but I didn't use it as an excuse. I still made healthy eating choices, and did what I could. You've got this, stay encouraged. Stop letting the world define you. Stop believing in some magic formula. No I didn't have instant over night results, and to be honest it's not truly going to happen. I'm 34 pounds from my first major goal, and have just started back to working out. But I'm going to keep fighting and knowing I was designed from love.
It's week 3!!!
I'm going a little easier on you since next week we are pumping it up. You should be afraid, but in a good way.
So this week is a simple all over workout, that should be repeated 3 times.
It's one of my favorites for sure.
Makensure you are drinking that water, and making healthy food decisions. Maybe go meatless for a meal or two. Making sure you have a veggie at every meal is also a wonderful place to start.
Another great tip, keep a journal of your progress. Not only weigh, but also measure yourself.
Hey lovelies!! How did last week go? I'm sure your legs hated me for the first few days. I know mine did, but it feels so good to be moving again!
This week we are focusing on our core. I'm giving you two quick workouts that focus on the abs and inner thigh area. These can be done at home with no equipment necessary.
MWF with something low impact such as yoga or a nice 30-45 minute walk on T/THR
Get moving! Spread a little joy and sparkle.
As always please make sure you consult a doctor before beginning any workout routine.
I also want to challenge you this week to make sure your yearly physical has been done or make sure you get it scheduled. Making sure things like cholesterol, and blood pressure are in check are so very important. Early detection is key to any health issue.
Here's another little sneak peak to keep us both encouraged! Feedback is always appreciated.
‘A spoonful of grace helps cure that case of the guilt’s.’
“But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out His special favor on me, and not without results. For I have worked harder than any other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by His grace.” ~1 Corinthians 15:10
Have you ever just stood in the mirror and really looked at yourself? No makeup, no salon fresh hair. Was your first thought “I am beautifully, and wonderfully made”? It should have been, because you are.
You are going to have bad days. That baby of yours is going to have a meltdown in Target for no reason, you might just run around in mismatched shoes only to notice half way through the day, or that dinner you worked on for two hours is now on fire. Those days will happen, I guarantee it.
It's Monday! Are you moving?!
Amazing news to share!! This girl is cancer free!!!! God is good y'all ❤❤❤
I still face some health battles ahead, but I can now add some light weight workouts back in.
So who's up for the challenge?!
Every Monday I will post a body focused workout. This week is legs. I will be doing this MWF, with a 30 minute yoga workout on in between days.
This week it's all about legs. Using these two quick workouts took me about 20 minutes. Who doesn't have 20 minuets?!
Some workout pointers
*Please warm up and stretch
*Invest in a foam roller for post workout soreness
*Water!!! Water intake is so important. Strive for at least 80 to 100 ounces a day.
*Modify when needed
*Please check with your doctor before starting any new workouts.
Remeber, working out is to get YOUR body to a healthy state. Don't focus on others, this is about you, and setting a healthy body image for yourself. Don't let this worlds body imagine define you. The beauty in you comes from Christ.
Jesus! That name, so much power, so much love, and all the strength you need.
In the past, Monday's have been dedicated to workouts, health and fitness, but in this season of life, my "never missing" is currently built on spiritual fitness.
In the last few months, I've had dark days, hard days, don't want to get out of bed and exists days. The thing that was always constant, His voice, His peace, His strength. His Love.
I'm learning to truly lean on Him, to hold faith that He will see me through, and provide. Most importantly I think I'm learning to seek Him, talk to Him, be encouraged, and find joy in Him.
I build this strength by soaking up as much Jesus as I can possibly get. Going to bible studies, spending time in the word(daily),praying with friends in faith. Being apart of and rooted at church. Building a relationship with Christ.
I'm learning it's okay to be weak, because that is part of me, and there is no shame or condemnation in that. I simply have to be still and know that He is there. Soak Him up in the quiet, in the chaos, in the pain. Watching as He turns these ashes into glitter.
Today was my first day back in the gym in about two months. I took some time out for health reasons. I missed it, and I could definitely tell the changes my body went through without that healthy outlet. But I'm back baby!
The most important thing I did to get back at it, I talked to my coach. I set goals, and told her what I needed to follow through. It's that simple guys, find someone knowledgeable and trust worthy who will hold you to a high standard. Nothing's going to change unti you want it. I want it. This is my
last big push, my final goal. Today I started with interval walk/runs, box jumps ,burpees, and squats. Did I hop right back in to where I left off, of course not! But I woke up and made a promise to myself and my coach. You can do it. Get it done, do this for you and no one else. You owe it to yourself.
I will post my weekly update and photo just for added accountability. Love you guys! Keep shining⭐️⭐️⭐️
