Gratitude Mondays


I find doing a gratitude journal rather blasé, to be honest.  It gets tedious.  Not all of us have grandiose things happening to us each and every day – things that make us stop and say, “Wow”.  You know, like winning the lottery, or going on a dream cruise for up to a month, or… Continue reading Gratitude Mondays

Day Thirty: Weight Loss God’s Way


DAY THIRTY: WEIGHT LOSS GOD’S WAY

In our last WOD (workout of the day) together…let’s do HAPPY!

But first let’s talk about happiness.

The world is consumed by the pursuit of happiness. We try a little bit of this and a little bit of that hoping to GET happy. “You deserve to be happy”….oh what a dangerous saying. In the echoes of that statement marriages implode, careers get trashed, and bodies go under the knife.

Solomon was the wisest and richest man to ever live. He went on the ultimate pursuit of happiness; sex, wine, food, money, knowledge, and power were all his for the taking. And in the end he found it all empty and lacking. Sound familiar to your fitness pursuits?

Learning to love yourself


I believe that one of the greatest problems in life is learning to love yourself.  If you truly loved yourself, you wouldn’t do drugs, or an alcoholic, or sleep around – you would take care of yourself and look after yourself.  Let’s see what Joyce Meyers says on this topic: Find the Love, Peace and… Continue reading Learning to love yourself

How to Defeat Your Doubts and Feed Your Faith


by Joyce Meyer I have developed a “life attitude” that makes me more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus: “I’m going to finish my course, enjoy the journey, fulfill my destiny and have everything Jesus died for me to have!” Before I learned to live with this attitude, I struggled with two things the devil… Continue reading How to Defeat Your Doubts and Feed Your Faith
