GET FIRED UP: This Girl is On FIYAH!!!!!

In case you missed the big news, a few months ago I was awarded the position of brand ambassador with Reebok ONE and it’s been all sorts of fun! This is HUGE for you because this means I’ve got discounts on clothing and shoes AND awesome stuff to give-away!!!

WHEW you have no idea how excited I am about this one. The end of 2012 we just about wore out Alicia Keys song “Girl on Fire” and there were so many scripture references linked to what happens in the fire when God ignited it!!!!!

OH the second half of this year is gonna be SMOKIN (pun intended)!!!!!

Get ready (2 Timothy 1:6)

GET ANCHORED –

OneWord2013_Anchored

At the beginning of the year I established my ONE WORD:  “ANCHORED”. This would be the one word I would allow God to use to establish me, shape me, cause me to see more of His presence in my life. God has been so faithful to keep me anchored, to show me the things that had previously weighed me down that He would cause to keep me grounded.  He also began to show me that inneractive FITCLUB is anchored; ANCHORED in the core of being a profound relevant voice, to bridge the gap, to bring people together and establish an accountability support system; to create a place where Christ is found right where they are. So, as God would have it, the anchor has become the symbol of inneractive FITCLUB. It stands for so much more than I can even really put into words, but a dear friend shared something she learned during a tour of cruise ship. The travel guide explained that the anchor never really touches the bottom of the ocean, it’s lowered into the ocean and the mere weight (presence) of the anchor keeps the vessel steady. She said it’s as if the ship knows it’s secured so it doesn’tmove. THAT’S WHAT WE NEED. Jesus at the center. Jesus as our anchor.  Those times when the scale tries to tell us otherwise. Those times when the mirror tries to proclaim lies. Those times when our past regrets and failures try to define who we are. The mere presence of the anchor keeps us grounded. (Hebrews 6) OMG I totally almost forgot to tell you, we’re working on getting inneractive FITCLUB clothing, jewelry, iPhone/iPad cases and swag with the ANCHOR…stay tuned!!!

Keep movin’

Here’s Some motivation to keep you movin’ through the weekend!

You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you. I’ll always be with you. I’ll always be with you.” -From “Pooh’s Most Grand Adventure: The Search For Christopher Robin” ALL RIGHTS RESERVED TO DISNEY.

And of course, a total body fitness challenge! Enjoy

Little changes = big results

It’s been a while since I posted anything. I’ve been trying to make some changes to the website/blog/my classes/life etc. Initially I thought if I couldn’t do everything in one fell swoop I didn’t want to do it. To me, that was “doing it right” I quickly discovered that little changes could add up. At the beginning of the year I started pushing toward goals I had set almost 2 years ago but for one reason or another I stepped away from them or let someone talk me out of them.

Fast forward now and I’m already seeing results that are bigger than I’d imagined! Discipline did it! God’s instruction did it. Staying anchored and focused did it!

Today I came across this devotional regarding discipline and I wanted to share it with you.  As I finish some of the changes on the website & blog, pray with me, inneractive FITCLUB is finally becoming what I know it was intended to be!

Yes, in the beginning, disciplining yourself will be difficult. It won’t feel good and you won’t like it. But every time you make a choice to do the right thing, the next time it gets a little easier. And you get one step closer to your goal.

Monday Motivation: Ready. Set. Eat. Nutrition Challenge

Motivation: Food For Thought:

Very big portions make very little sense. (Philippians 3:19, Prov 16:32)

February was all about love. Lovin’ yourself stronger. Lovin’ your heart healthy! This month, we’re gonna love ourselves even more but now there’s gonna be a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on!

During the month of March, we’re take 1 week at a time, shake some stuff off and sift through the junk in our trunk. Well, yeah that trunk too but actually it’s that trunk that holds all the stuff that you’ve decided to put away. It reeks of your past, it’s hidden away covered in cobwebs, potentially moth destroyed & moldy yet SOMEHOW it finds its pesky way back into our lives.

It shows up in our attitudes, in our offenses, on the scale, on FACEBOOK asking us to friend it!?!?!?!?

OMG she did not just ask me to be friends with her, THE NERVE…oh I guess I shouldn’t have went there. Well, yes I shoulda cuz guess what, if the fact that she wants to be ‘friends’, even in the vitural-hood; makes me a bit testy, then there’s some mess I forgot to deal with.  Lysa Terkeurst  calls it “stink” I call it “STANK” now maybe I’m just talkin’ to myself here but I’ve caught myself maintaining a consistent STANK attitude at times before. But Bless God He ain’t finished with me yet!

So, you ready to get shakin’?

It’s time to shake sumthin’ off!!!!

So what’s the pan? Simply put, to move & eat! Move, eat and have fun with it!!!

We’ve decided to join Nutritious Eats for the Eat Right for National Nutrition Month challenge; it’s all about eating healthy for YOU! And since most of us start seeing green this month thanks to the shamrocks, what better way to celebrate than to get as much green goodness in your body as you can!

Ready. Set. Eat. Join the nutrition challenge!

Question from one of my fitness/business mentors:
“Do you mind sharing what you did to make this happen”:

My response (from my heart):
“I just truly stopped trying to be someone else. I’ve been praying hard about who I am and living so that my truest self shows up, no matter where I am. I’m learning that I’m not one person as a fitness instructor and another person in my ‘personal life’. I am who I am. I can’t turn something on for one group of people then claim to ‘turn it off’ for another. I stopped trying to please people and focused on pleasing God.

At the beginning of the year I decided I was putting First Things First; that meant God first, everything else was second…including my plans. I figured if God wants it in my life, He’ll see to it that it happens. And here we are!

Thanks to my fitness/business mentors for the push! {Jenn Hall, Christine Dwyer, Chalene Johnson, Kelly Olexa}

I soooo appreciate my Pastor for holding us accountable! We’ve gotta hold each other accountable on EVERYTHING (spirit, soul, body, finances & relationships) my pastor calls those the arenas of life.  Arena-because that’s where battles are fought! And won!”

When you put your faith in God, raise your expectation!

God First

What’s first in your life? How are your goals coming?

Finish what you started with the same eagerness 2 Corinthians 8:9

-Keep movin’

Make plans to succeed!

Romans 8:24-25 CEB

We were saved in hope. If we see what we hope for, that isn’t hope. Who hopes for what they already see? But if we hope for what we don’t see, we wait for it with patience.

Accountability check!!! How’d you do this week?

What did your fitness plan look like? Did it challenge you?

~~~Are you staying hydrated?

Hydration doesn’t mean you’re restricted to water, try coconut water like ZICO chocolate that stuff tastes too yummy to be good for you but it truly is!

Add a piece of pineapple to your bottle of water, the natural sugars will sweeten it.

~~~How often do you eat? Do you know how many calories you should be eating for YOUR fitness goals?

~~~How’s your heart? Disappointment is one of the greatest causes of self defeat. Are you setting realistic goals? Do you have a support system of people who believe in those goals? Set your goals high enough that they require someone to hold you accountable. If your goals aren’t requiring you to give a little extra effort they’re not goals they’re simply considerations. Successful minds don’t just consider, they move!
