When I was a kid, I worked all the time with my papa. And my nana was very particular about her yard. Well papa bought some high end self prop mower. Of course I used the mix gas and it ran. Kinda. Was reminded of that when I was reading Mere Christianity this morning by CS Lewis. He said we were designed by our creator to be filled with Him. Any other way, we run about like that mower. We can still run, but not real well, real long or efficiently. So how do we fill ourselves with Him? We discipline ourselves to pray. To pursue His will in our lives. To write His words upon our hearts. Pastor David Griffin @clifec this morning began a new series on prayer called “what’s the point.” Because God hears us, He cares for us, He speaks to us through prayer, He moves through prayer. Oftentimes His movements are within us. The correct gas. No mixture. Pure God Pure love. He longs for and wants the relationship with us. A loving father, like when my kids are with their mom and it completely alters my day when they call out of the blue. I step out of meetings to take those. God does the same when we call on Him. And through prayer, we have a relationship with Him. He fills us. Sometimes our prayers won’t change the situation or change others, but they always change us. Like pastor David said, the spirit of God will still step out of the normal into the extra normal. And it happens because of prayer. #disciplineequalsfreedom

Are you willing to work to the point of pure exhaustion, to the point where you’re sick and shaking, to the point where you acquire sleeping disorders, to the point where you lose friends, and to the point where you’re physically ill from sickening stress?

The mountain you’re trying to climb may seem impossible.
But that’s why you need people beside you who will cheer you on, equip you with what will help and push you for the MORE you were meant for...
and when it comes time, you trust they’ll sit with you when you need to breathe and they’ll believe in you more than you believe in yourself at times.
You’re the one who has to put one foot in front of the other. No one else can decide or do that for you, but
One step at a time and the right people by your side will take you to where you want to go. Where you were meant to be. .
It’s that simple.
I’m going on an adventure and would love for you to join me! We can climb this mountain better together babe 🏔💪🏻 .
My next 21 day bootcamp starts next week! Message me if you want to see a view you’ve never seen before or breathe in that wild, free and fresh mountain air like you never have before! 💌

If I didn’t call them inside, the Boys would continue playing outside in the rainstorm. Lightning and thunder don’t bother our dogs at all. Totally calm, as they should be. Turn up the volume to hear the thunder - Beautiful actually ⛈
Joined the gym again now that my hours will be changing for the school year.
70 pounds heavier than when I met my husband 6 years ago. 40 pounds of that was gained in the last 9 months during cancer treatment.
I kicked cancer's ass by the grace of God and now it's time to get my own back in shape.
Discouragement and lack of confidence WILL happen. But failure is NO LONGER an option.
I was slim and toned and felt sexy in my body before so I know I can get there again.
Crawl through it, cry through it, sweat through it, but just get through it. I have faith in my ability to do this.
135 pounds, here I come!
Back in the States and picking up the kids from the wonderful grandparents’ house.
This morning I went for a 30-minute jog-walk. No it wasn’t fast but it made me proud of ME.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my goals around fitness, journaling, fiddle, and my business. Discipline, commitment, and time blocking are the way to go. I’ve realized that I want to crank it up in all of these areas because I’ve got tons of things I want to achieve.
And I’ve been too lax on my accomplishments. I can use each hour of my time WAY more fully. So, I am cranking up my use of each hour to get more things done in less time.
Saturday morning I dragged myself out of bed to demolish leg day. I had ZERO motivation to go to the gym. Truth be told I can’t solely rely on motivation and my “why”. Those 2 things aren’t enough for me. If they were then most days I wouldn’t go. What got me in the weight room was one thing - .
DISCIPLINE and the PROMISE I made to myself to stay consistent. This is something I’ve struggled with in the past with. But for the past 6 weeks I’ve consistently been hitting the weights 4x a week. A routine That is doable for me. Finally finding that balance my body needs.
After my workout I bumped into this sweet soul at the gym and I realized I was right where I needed to be. Met her a few years ago. She’s so dope, sexy and a beast in the gym. Can’t wait to get a workout in together and try a vegan meal with you. Thanks for the inspiration 😘 @courtneyjeanallen . #disciplineequalsfreedom#discipline#fitspo#blackgirlmagic#blackgirlslift#morningworkouts
For a while, I was on the path to a 500 deadlift. Since I got it, I’ve trained less and less to keep it. Struggling to hit 405 today is a good reminder not to take things for granted, and of the discipline it takes to maintain your strengths. #humility#holdtheline#disciplineequalsfreedom
