My husband trains athletes. He is a Strength Coach and he is very good at what he does. He has travelled all over the world with world class athletes, sculpting their potential giving them an edge to compete.Because of my husband’s profession I have been exposed to great athletes. I’ve watched how they train. They shine. They make everything look effortless and easy. Though they have God given talent and ability not one of these Olympians woke up a Champion. They each walked through the refiner’s fire of desire, discipline,

The Enemy of your soul is a Master of Distraction. He will use subtle little seemingly innocent circumstances to redirect your focus when you are plugged in to something Greater.
I see this a lot when people are on a fitness quest. The Enemy sees them become consistent and resolved. He see they want it and are getting after it…real commitment or even the desire to begin with it. He is subtle, he will use outside factors to derail your goals and
I remember when my daughter was maybe 10, maybe a little younger…I had to explain to her why exercise was important to do even when you didn’t feel like doing it. Because she saw me consistent with it she assumed I always wanted to do it. I told her I didn’t always feel like working out. She seemed surprised. Then I walked her through a talk about our family health history.
When you know your history, you know what needs to happen to change the future so history doesn’t repeat.

Why Can’t I Get Motivated?
This may be a question you’re asking yourself right now?
You have dreams, things you want to do, experiences rich inside the heart and mind, but something comes up lacking when it’s actually time to take the required action steps to move upon your goals. Why?
You maybe be experiencing a vicious cycle of deleterious effects because of a “start-stop syndrome”. You’ve got the best intentions, you may even begin that daunting task, that exercise program or clean eating menu—but something inside just isn’t clicking and the motivation
Never chase a goal so hard you forget to have fun with it.♥️
I’ve been going through some old photos—compiling them from all the various shows I’ve done over the years. I have a specific purpose for this complication for myself and my training. It’s interesting and useful to see how I’ve changed my physique over the years. Change happens small and over time. Pictures help with perspective.
As I go through them, I am reminded there’s been quite a few and I’ve now been doing this more than just a year
We live in such a superficial society.
Appearance is everything and vanity is it’s chief council.
There are countless strategies available to make us look and feel great. Everything from head to toe–you’re covered if you’re willing to spend the time, money and energy to consume what society is selling.
Sustenance is an interesting thing.

Through time trends come and then they go only to reappear again some time later.
Fitness is in style. Period. We live in a culture that has moved to the extreme in everything. Not only is fitness hip, but there are so many ways to express it.
When I was young I was always attracted to an athletic frame. Not just in men—women also. I had a deep regard for muscle tone and that “healthy” look. I found it appealing. Probably one of the reasons I became a sponge for all things
Studies have been done using fleas. The fleas are placed in a jar and the lid is fastened. The fleas jump & jump & jump, but get no where. After a while they stop jumping. In fact, when the lid is removed, giving the fleas total freedom they still won’t jump out. I wonder what would happen if a new flea was introduced to the group? Would the other fleas laugh at him for daring to jump? Would they avoid him because he did things differently than them? I’m sure

There was a woman who receive a remarkable healing in her body. She was so exuberant with joy she wrote her Pastor to tell him the good news. She finished her letter by asking, “Do you think God would do anything about my being overweight?” The Pastor wrote her back and congratulated her on her miracle, and replied to
