7 Ways to eat healthy without cooking

The three things that you need to be successful in weight loss is incredible support (I believe in the power of prayer and Jesus), but accountability is important.  A great workout that is efficient, fun and relates to you and your lifestyle. Healthy eating of nutrient dense foods that usually is made at home.

Our society has capitalized on our need for convenience and our lack of will to make our meals at home. The grocery store has extensive prepared food section that is starting to be the same size as the fresh produce or meat department. Why? We want to eat well without cooking.  It makes sense, life is busy, and we need to eat. Why not pay for the convenience of already prepared food.

The biggest problem that I found people have is that they want to eat well but not cook...

My Figure Prep Update

 There are Amazon and other affiliate links which I do make a commission from. My Full Disclosure Policy

So, a few months ago I made this huge announcement. (to all those who would listen) I was going to train to compete in National Physique Committee (NPC) Figure Division “Bodybuilding” Competition.  I still get a lot of, “Why do you want to do that?” and honestly, in short, I’ve always thought it was cool and I am an adult and one of the benefits of being an adult we can (within reason) do what we want. Me, I want to try to compete in a body building competition. I love the discipline, the results and the training.  I chose figure over other division because for one I don’t want to do a routine in an eenie weenie teenie bikini, no thank you...

Are your working out dehydrated?

I received the Brita Stream Rapids Water Filtration for free from Influenster in exchange for a Review.  The fact that I received this for free does not effect my opinion. My Full Disclosure Policy

Are you working out dehydrated and don’t even know it? If you are a sedentary person according to National Academy of Sports Medicine, you men need 3 Liters a day and women need 2.2 Liters a day. If you are trying to lose weight, you should drink 8 ounces of water for every 25 pounds that you are overweight which is a little over 3 ounces for every 3 lbs of extra weight you carry. Is that a gallon? Nope and lots of people are over consuming water with the gallon mentality...

Tackling Food Fixation

I received this book for free in exchange for a review. Receiving the book has no effect on my review.  There are Amazon affiliate links which I do make a commission from. My Full Disclosure Policy

“The Struggle is real,” I know that is a cliche at this pointI read the book, Full, it’s something that continuously looped in my head. I wish I would have found Full months ago, but then again I don’t think I was ready for it. For those of you who have been following my story, you have seen me lose a gross amount of weight in the last two years, but the one thing that although I am growing in daily still have not mastered is my food fixation and motivation.

It’s been almost two years, and I have made some serious lifestyle changes for myself and family...

When things look bad

Have you ever had one of those “Rotten, terrible, no good, very bad days?” Weeks? Months?  I have to say that most days I am highly blessed and favored.Then there are those few moments in life where I feel like God was working on something or someone else that day? week? and sometimes even months? I know better but sometimes I let my feelings rule. On those days my annoyances get in the way it’s very hard to see anything else. The way I handled those days before Jesus is much different than how I would handle it today.

Today’s Prayer: Praying for our husband’s responsibilities

1 Timothy 5:8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially  for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Every morning for 10 minutes before my husband and daughters go to work and school we have devotion.  (If you’re looking for a great family devotional I have finally found one after month’s of searching) We begin in prayer, do the devotional and I usually end in prayer. This is my opportunity to pray for my family with my family before they go out into the world. I look forward to it, I always pray for protection for them, that they will be a light for the Lord and what we learned from our study may they be able to keep in their hearts and teach it to others...

Growing a community that Loves “one another”

After attending church on Sunday I was inspired by my Pastors mention of the “one another” passages. Some may have heard of them and others new to their journey in faith may have found them new and exciting information. I like to go home
review, digest and reflect on what I have learned.

This Sunday’s message inspired me to share because building a community is what I am aspiring to do with Mommies of Faith. So, I did some research on the “one another passages.”

On the website (www.truthaccordingtoacripture.com) I found a paragraph stating: Jesus sums up all the laws into two commands:Love. To Love is to fulfill the whole law. “For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall live your neighbor as yourself.’ Gal 5:14

Growing up I remember learning the acronym J.O...
