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

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!

EatRight Challenge

Ready. Set. Eat. Join the nutrition challenge!

Revisit your goals, reset your focus.

What’s keepin’ your heart pumpin’ & spirit movin’? January is over. How’d you fair on your new year, new you goals? Did you set expectations that were S.M.A.R.T. (we can discuss that further), did you make sure you kept your F.O.C.U.S.?

Hold on, let me pause for a second, I really want to show you this. Maybe you’ve seen this already, or maybe you could use a reminder…

You feel that heart beat in your chest…that means get up & do somethin’…

Wasn’t that AWESOME? Don’t be boring…anybody can be boring!

So, I committed to a 30 day challenge and I’m proud to say it’s now day 31!!!

I started the challenge originally in 2011 with a totally different mind set. Yeah, I was quite negative and condescending. Consequently I had only completed the first half of the challenge. With that in mind and a biblical truth-anchored (Matthew 6:33) mantra of “FIRST THINGS FIRST”; I put my life, hope, trust, goals, priorities and family in His hands. I fixated my thoughts on the decision that where He says go, I’ll go, when He closes a door I’ll trust that He’s got something better.

I’ve prayed some big prayers over the last 30 days, focused and anchored in the truth of Gods word! The greatest opportunity in all of this, knowing that God has plans for my life (Jeremiah 29:11) and I have full access to those plans!

It feels like my life got a full detox, inside & out!!!

As a result of this challenge, one of the habits I’m working to develop is getting organized. I was gonna say more organized but that would be a lie, I’ve kinda got this system of piles going on.

I’m actually pulling together the February challenge so we’ll really sort through some things, we’re gonna learn what to keep, what to donate, and what to toss.

20130131-075815.jpg

I read a blog on simple space & money savers…things like arranging packages so expiration dates are visible & keeping an inventory so you know exactly what you have, laying boxes on their sides saved space, etc. I can’t wait to get the next challenge started!!!

I’m jazzed about the progress I’ve had so far so I decided I might use some of my new-found F.O.C.U.S. to I tackle the office closet, y’all I found priceless fitness material I had previously researched and never used …SCORE…ooh the things to come from that treasure find! Anyway, I found a box of over 9 years worth of journals. Some bible study notes, others heart reflections that literally had me in tears. So much proof that God was watching over me & answering prayers. It really got me to thinking, some of the stuff I found, under all those piles of clutter, I had been scratching my head and flipping my house upside down trying to find it. Other stuff I was literally like whoa I forgot I had this. So I wondered, what could I find that I already have that might be hidden under a cluttered thoughts, cluttered expectations, cluttered vision. What hidden priceless knowledge or talents could be uncovered if I just learned what to keep, donate or toss? Where there prayers that have already been answered but I just couldn’t ‘find them’ under the piles of organized chaos?

How do you know when God has answered your prayers?

Know that God has heard your prayers!

This 30 day PUSH challenge isn’t over. Honestly, not to sound cliché or cheesy but I feel like I just got started. I’m still nose deep in the self inventory of You’re Already Amazing and since I synced the chapters parallel to the calendar and this challenge I’ve cried so many tears of joy over the current chapter of “What Does God Want Me to Do with My Life”. Holley Gerth coaches us on how to uniquely craft a LIFE statement. She says…

In our culture, that’s often called a mission statement. And while I think those can be helpful, it feels like the title can be a bit misleading. As believers, we all ultimately have the same mission. God gave it to us in Galatians 5:6: (The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.) We’re here to express faith through love – for God, others, and ourselves.”

So instead of writing a mission statement, we’ve used the following prompt to create our L.I.F.E. statement. (Love Is Faith Expressed)

I am created and called to express my faith through love, especially by…

+ (WHAT) + ( WHO ) + ( HOW )

Holley’s example reads: I am created and called to express my faith through love, especially by bringing hope and encouragement to the hearts of women through word.

What would be your L.I.F.E. statement? I’m still working on mine, praying over it and letting this scripture guide me.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (MSG

We’re not keeping this quiet, not on your life. Just like the psalmist who wrote, “I believed it, so I said it,” we say what we believe. And what we believe is that the One who raised up the Master Jesus will just as certainly raise us up with you, alive. Every detail works to your advantage and to God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise! So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever. (2 Corinthians 4:13-18 MSG)

You’re already amazing, be blessed in knowing this…

“God is love-whatever he directs you to do will be loving to others too.

Your house doesn’t have to be spotless.

Your work doesn’t have to be flawless.

You don’t have to please that finicky member of your family.

You don’t have to look like a page out of a magazine.

You’re already enough because Jesus is enough in you. ” -Holley Gerth
