Just a good old fashioned breakfast of champions. That I ate while just staring out the window, contemplating not getting out of my pajamas/lounge wear today. But the chapel on our base is in direct view and it is a sturdy reminder I need to lean on my sisters this morning at Women’s Bible Study.
Let's own our choices, not our excuses. Those excuses are nasty little lies holding us down.
It's been a process for me to realize how many of those things I believed. I had to debunk one at a time, but only through pushing through the doubt.
I couldn't have ever done that without our accountibility groups. We motivate & learn from each other, sharing our successes & struggles. I also SEE what's possible from Ordinary women, not just the Super stars. Does that sound like an environment you could benefit from? Let's chat! Our programs are awesome, but our accountibility group is where the magic happens.
Sundays are for couple fun & meeting up with friends that we haven't seen in forever. ❤
Several years ago there would be no way I'd be able to go to my dad's celebration of life event.
Just the thought of leaving my home, gave me a severe panic attack. Plus I had agoraphobia and social anxiety...and various health issues. I missed out on so many family events and life in general.
It feels amazing to be able to get out of the house and enjoy life. I'm hardly ever home and love talking to people!! On my off days (which I don't get often) I get nervous, instead of have attacks. I say "no excuses", "I got this" and focus on my breathing. When I'm done I'm so proud of myself for going, not giving up and leaving.
I've spoken in front of 100-200 people, a few different times and loved it! I was nervous but I did it.
I'm in control of my life! I'm taking chances and doing things I never thought was possible!! <3
today! ALL. THE. CHICKEN. BREAST. (Trying to nail my meals on #TemplateLife
) and a little bit of skirt steak to make fajita steak strips ‘cause y’all know I’m a beef girl. Loaded up on mashed potatoes since that’s about the only non fruit carb that’s working for my body, loaded up on green beans because they are LIFE, loaded up on LaCroix because I hate cockroaches, and loaded up on Justin’s because life is too short to not have tasty treats (and I’m still seeing improvement having a few during the week).
Man, this whole back issue & resting has been killing me, but yesterday was something else! Getting my hair done, and putting this dress on, and it going from being too snug to “I need this taken in!” just made me feel so radiant!
I don’t know how they’ll take the top in, but I sure hope they can, because I feel so stunning in this dress and love it so much!
Today was supposed to happen yesterday but life happens. Adjust and go on.
Yesterday/Today was the last workout marking the halfway point of the Liift4 program.
4 weeks done ✅
So many good things have happened in these last 4 weeks.
▫️Not missed a workout 💪🏻🏃🏻♀️
▫️Kept good food in the house 🍎🥦🍠
▫️Registered for a 5K w/ a new friend 👭
▫️I didn’t quit when it got hard.
But I also learned what I still need to work on. ▫️Remember my why- this is for me and the person God wants me to grow into.
▫️Writing down affirmations. Stop believing that I’ll probably fail and quit.
▫️Thinking I can’t make a difference.
There are highs and lows. I have accomplished consistency but I still struggle to believe in myself.
We all are a work in progress ♥️
We all have things to overcome and fight against.
I’m so very thankful for what these last 4 weeks have taught me. I can do it.

🍴BUBBA BURGERS with some oven roasted green beans, mashed potatoes, and grapes.
Resting has been brutal you guys. My back is feeling a little better though. Nutrition hasn’t been as on point, but I’m pretty proud of this *almost* template meal!
