What Is Your Diet Trying To Tell You?

10 commandments

  Your diet may be trying to tell you something much bigger and much more meaningful than your daily calorie count. Your diet may be trying to uncover something you’ve hidden for a long time.

Fitness Motivation: Ordinary People Do the Extraordinary

When we see photos of fitness competitors and professional athletes, it can be very motivating for some people – but very discouraging for others. It’s easy to set ourselves apart from the professionals, or from people we think we can’t relate to, and think to ourselves “I could never do that”.  But, when I see someone with my …

Fixed On Food? 5 Steps to Freedom

discipline

We all have to eat, but are we living to eat or do we eat to live – and live life well? Meaning, is food Lord over our life or is it just part of life. Sometimes I think we give food way too much power. This morning I was reading the passage “…choose for yourselves …

Bikini & Bodybuilding: Why Compete?

Despite my appearance, or the fact I have been in the fitness industry for most of my life, competing was the very LAST thing I ever wanted to do. A matter of fact, it was at the very TOP on my list of things I NEVER wanted to do. I never wanted to compete in any kind of fitness …

Strong Body Starts with a Strong Mind

MINDSET

I believe the person we listen to most is our own self. It really doesn’t matter what people tell us if we don’t believe it. Someone may tell us we are pretty or awesome but if we don’t feel pretty or awesome, that compliment goes out the window in a flash. How we speak to …

Pitiful or Powerful: You Choose

I'm a Fighter

Most of the time, our biggest enemy is our own self. Our mind fills us with thoughts of doubt, fear, despair and discouragement. As Joyce Meyer loves to say, “you can’t be pitiful and powerful at the same time.” You simply can’t be a victim and a fighter. The only way you can power through …

DAY 25: Lose Weight, Gain More
