Body, Mind, & Soul Work Together


body mind soul Body, Mind, & Soul Work Together

I’m super passionate about how the body, mind, & soul all work together, but sometimes I need to remind myself that as well.

As I’ve mentioned in my FB posts, I’ve had an off week. I am not beating myself up & I know I am human, but I am trying to show you something that will help you so hear me out.

Between feeding my body too many foods that aren’t good for me, trying to adapt to a new schedule, not getting enough sleep, & not getting in more than one devotion time a day I’ve been completely jacked up feeling! But, I was thinking & it all started with one thing being off.

I wasn’t feeding my body properly, so it affected me mentally. Because of that I felt more sluggish & not as motivated, so I didn’t care so much about doing extra devotion time or going to bed early (just being real). Even though I know those things are so good for me!

But just that one thing derailed me & had a domino effect. If one is off balance, the others will be as well. And I know when my spiritual life is off & I’m not putting The Lord first, everything else gets thrown off. The body, mind, & soul work together.

And honoring God with my body by eating healthy & properly IS part of my relationship with Him. No wonder the Holy Spirit has felt uncomfortable within my body because I haven’t been taking care of it like I normally would!

Again, I know I’m human & I know we all make mistakes. That’s what we learn from & that’s what I’m taking this last off week as; a lesson from God because He is my Father & is trying to show me I need to get myself together. The body, mind, & soul work together.

I just wanted to share this with y’all & be transparent about my struggles in hopes that it’ll help someone else. These were never things I understood before when I was 60 lbs heavier & not living for The Lord. But I’m thankful for my struggles because they make me stronger & most importantly it’s my testimony to share to help others. The body, mind, & soul work together.

If you ever have a prayer request or need help with something, don’t hesitate to email me or message me on Facebook!

Before & after I lost 60 pounds icon smile Have Fun Getting Fit

I was overweight half my life & used to think that eating healthy was boring & miserable.

I was wrong.

After losing 60 lbs, I became obsessed with doing too much cardio & eating too little calories, while also calorie counting. Then I realized that eating healthy is AMAZE, super yummy, & it’ll change your life.

I started playing with food . . .and having a blast. I created new recipes – made them and the most fun part . . . taste testing!! Now, I have teamed up with my friend Sarah to bring you the most FUN cookbook!

Your Body and Your Image: Seeing Yourself Healthy

The way you see yourself & your thoughts are literally what creates your life & happiness. I have personally struggled with an unhealthy body image for most of my life. I was overweight for half my life & a few years ago finally lost 60 lbs. Since then I’ve kept it off (gained a few in muscle though), but I continue to view myself as the girl I used to be when I looked in the mirror. Then God & the Pastor at my church started working on me about this topic. There is a way to love yourself & I like to call it your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

It’s all about the thoughts that you let stay in your head – you have to control that ACESSS – those negative thoughts CAN be kicked to the curb! There are going to be so many negative thoughts that pass through your mind each day, but you MUST overcome them with positive thinking & the Word of God. Remember how God views you & just how beautiful & fearless He made you. You DESERVE to be happy! Surround yourself with positivity so that those negative thoughts don’t stand a chance. It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

Here are some more tips that I found, I love this list!!! It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

I want to encourage you to enjoy the process & be thankful for what you do have! My body has changed A LOT since starting Insanity almost 2 months ago! I’m not exactly where I want to be because I want to continue getting more toned & stronger, but I’m so thankful for how far I’ve come! I’m now able to get through almost all the workouts without stopping, I’ve lost several inches & a few pounds, I have a little mini two pack that comes & goes, my cellulite is basically go on, & my arms are more toned. So I’m sharing that with you to say pick out the GOOD – go write down your list & be thankful for that today! Stop complaining about the rest & thank God for what you do have right now! It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.
