I never really planned on sharing what I did in yesterday's post. I wrote this post out in my head about a month ago and was eager to share it from the get-go. Sharing what came before? That wasn't a part of the plan. God has ways above our though, and if He uses my honesty from yesterday to speak to one of you out there, then I am honored to have been a part of that.
After the Tone It Up Bikini Series, I was excited to get started on their book program.
If you're not ready, like myself, to purchase the Nutrition series, this book is for you! I think it's a great way to bridge that gap.The book encouraged everyone to write out, Fit/Fierce/Fabulous goals, but I decided to take it a step further. Without a connection to Christ, none of these goals will happen. As I wrote yesterday, my heart has to be in the right place, and that right place is in my Savior.
My fit goals are about focusing on choosing the way I feel and think about myself and the actions I aim for to make those happen. Being fit, isn't being skinny. Being fit is being the best you possibly. It's about taking care of yourself and strengthening your muscles. That's what I'm looking for.
I WILL be confident in my naked body.
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy. Jude 1:24
I WILL choose to eat healthier.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
I WILL wear a bathing suit/bikini and feel awesome.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
For me, being fierce means really rocking that self confidence! That's going to happen when I really pull from my center, which should be filled with Christ.
I WILL talk positively to myself.
Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
I WILL have confidence to try new things.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
I WILL choose God's promises to rest in.
All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.John 6:37
Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.Hebrews 12:2
My fabulous goals are going to happen when my heart is rightly joyful in the work of Christ.
I WILL be filled with Christ's truths.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39
I WILL show joy and glorify Christ.
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.Psalm 27:6
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you-- I whom you have delivered.Psalm 71:23
I WILL be excited about a healthier lifestyle.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I'm still working through this new challenge and all of these goals are still very new for me! What are some Bible verses you've found yourself anchored to as you work on changing your lifestyle about fitness?
