What’s next?

Have you ever looked back at where you’ve been and it all of a sudden make sense? That’s has been the last few months for me.  A few years ago, I was lost (Spiritually and Mentally), depressed, anxious, creeping up the scale and desperate for a way out.  It wasn’t until I completely surrendered all aspects of my life and sought God’s counsel that I found a direction to take.  Then a year ago almost to the day I had a “God idea.” I was scrolling through Facebook and an add for my current college popped up. I never thought of going back to school but as if I was forcefully pushed I pressed “Send me more info.” Within minutes I got a phone call that has literally changed this lost girl to having a clear vision that gets even more high definition by the day...

Family First

I have been following Amie Heverly on Social Media for over 3 years now. We were pregnant together and she made fitness and pregnancy seem possible.  Years later I never thought that someone who inspired me on my fitness journey would be sharing her gifts on my blog.  God works things out like that sometime. I am honored to have Amie Christine to guest post today for our final Family First FaithFueled Friday!

WHAT DOES GOD PRIORITY LIST LOOK LIKE?

Over the last few years, my priorities have changed drastically.

As a single mom of three boys, I have come to cherish every single moment with my boys, the good, the bad, the great, the funny, the embarrassing, the ugly, the tears, the joy…

I have taken a step back to evaluate everything I do in life.
Funny how having kids can make you do t...

11th day of FaithFueled Fitmas

Day 11

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, Ephesians 2:14

Yesterday, we talked about the anticipation of Immanuel, Our Savior to be born. What does it mean for Christ to be born? Since we already have seen the effects of his birth, this is not a trick question but mostly a question to insight, “Why are we celebrating Christmas?” I think modern day society we take the conveniences of life for granted. Often taking and never considering how it was given to us and why. Salvation is often taken for granted which I feel disappointing. We were given salvation through the birth and death of Christ and too often once we accept Christ we feel like that is a confirmation of our place in eternity...

12th Day of Fitmas

The Christmas Season is in full swing and despite my efforts to have a stress free, merry holiday I find myself getting caught up in the wrong reasons for this Holiday Cheer.  In the last few weeks, I have seen “12 Days of Fitmas Challenges” popping up all over my social media.  Never did I see anyone address the reason for the season. Now, I know with the various beliefs not everyone is celebrating the Holiday Season for the birth of Christ but this girl is and I couldn’t think of anything better than taking care of our temples at the same time. Carving out 30 minutes a day to reflect on God’s word to anticipate the birth of Christ and relieve some stress through a 15 minute physical activity.  That’s something that I couldn’t find, so, I made my own!

For the next 12 days we will b...

Honoring Your Temple is Not Just about Weight Loss

In my opinion honoring your temple is not just about weight loss, eating right and exercise. It is about taking care of the body God gave you spiritually, mentally and physically. It has come to my attention that I have been misrepresenting myself. I have showcased the physical worship of God and not the mental and spiritual. Partially because I’ve been on a weight loss journey; I am passionate about healthy, and fitness, and I have been sharing my journey on social media and through this blog. I have not been so public about the personal journey that I have been on in the last few years...

I’m Back-Running in the Super Run Philadelphia

TheSuperRunWorkoutWednesday

I DID IT! I also had a blast doing it. I ran my first 5k in 9 months. I used to run 5ks on a regular basis about three years ago but after having my last daughter and life running took a back seat.  I miss it so much; I didn’t realize until I barely trained for this 5k.  I have to admit I did not train well, but I liked to think that my weekly HIIT and Tabata gave me the endurance I needed to run the race mostly.  I did stop twice to walk but picked back up very quickly and surprised myself with an almost 39 minute 5k.  Now, I will admit it was my worst time so far but having ran a 1 mile twice before and did almost zero cardio in over 11 months I think I did awesome and even if I didn’t the experience was great.

Finding a better way

Behind every picture is a story; We all know that and looking at the last few years of my life pictures I definitely have one to tell.  August 1, I woke up and decided that I had enough with my current health. I was eating well enough, but I still was over indulging on sugar, my portions were ridiculous and using my boredom as an excuse to nibble on snacks.  I didn’t feel content in the body I was in, it didn’t match the image in my head. So, I decided to do something. I posted about how I found Beyond Fit Mom, and how I was making changes in my life. Well here I am 60 days later and I have totally created a new lifetime habit. I wanted to blog about this because there are a lot of mom’s who have shown the before and after but not a lot that shows the during...
