We're used to fitness posts where the "after" pic is a smaller version of the "before," but this isn't one of those. I have recently lost 25 lbs 💪, but that's not what this is about. Hang in there with me: 😊
From time to time, I get caught up in the, "Oh my gosh, I want my old body back!" 🙄 I have 25 (ok, closer to 30 🙃) lbs on that girl. I also have a child, a stable mind, controllable thoughts, strength, a powerful ministry, confidence, & many more curves that I actually love!🖤 I also have a decently healthy relationship with food, a positive body image, a joyful, spontaneous personality, & a passion for life & people. The old me couldn't love or be loved because she was so closed off with fear; she hated herself, but she didn't know what the future held. She didn't know the struggles, the victories, the healing, the beauty of peace that was just beyond her reach. Now, I can look the mirror, I can give & accept love without attaching insecurity to it. I can enjoy who I've become while knowing there's so much more to be discovered. I'm learning to be ok with failure, to see it within the bounds of grace, & to anticipate good in all things. If I can't love my body now after all it has overcome, I'm not going to know how to love it when I have all the muscles & definition I want. #mentalhealth #medicatedandmighty #anxiety #depression #hope #purpose #beachbody #beachbodycoach #beachbodyperformance #fitmom #shakeology
Feeling better about my progress and choices this week. After slacking off for a couple weeks I really wasn’t happy with myself, but I’ve recommitted. I’m working towards the best version of me and I’m happy to be back on track!
lil run 🏃 to start the day . . .
I found “it” at the end & finished strong. Pending race day - Nov 4th *** public service announcement ***

LIIFT 4 Leg Day Week 1 and Chest/Triceps Day Week 2
This is one of my favorite shirts to workout in....every time I put it on I am reminded of WHO defines me; of WHO my worth comes; of WHO I do not simply believe in, BUT I believe what HE says about me. I believe what He says about His plans for me! I believe what He says about my failures and successes. I believe what He says about who I am becoming every time I pray, dig into His word and go out into this world who is in DESPERATE need of Him!
GOD DEFINES ME! You see this isn't some sort of excuse or cop out to not care what the world is saying or thinking...it is an understanding by the Grace of His Son's sacrifice on the Cross. It is a full life surrender, the only type of responsive life I can lead in the shadow of the the Cross. GOD DEFINES ME doesn't mean I know things...my failures, my weight, my weaknesses, my vulnerabilities...this is an acceptance of the Grace of the One who allows me to progress past all of those worldly measurements to the eternal.
GOD DEFINES ME has also caused me to want to become more! More of who He has always wanted me to be! More of a wife, a mother, a teacher, a coach, a friend, a sister in Christ...This belief in His definition of me makes me want to become who He has always been calling me, burdening me, showing me, encouraging me to be against the status quo and low expectations of this world. I want to rise to His standard, His Expectation, His Call! WHO/WHAT DEFINES YOU?! #MOTIVATEDMonday #gracefilledmomma #beachbodyperformance #shakeologyforthewin #fitfabuloushistoryteacher #shakingintowellness #realmomwellness #productivityprincess #iamteambeachbody #teambodacious #amwellnessclub #thejugglingmomma

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
