I went walking around the Lake today for my cardio workout. When I got there, there were only a few cars and some people sitting at tables under the picnic shelters. I started walking and feeling insecure and scared because no one else was walking but me. I felt isolated and targeted.
But being stubborn and needing to get the workout done, I continued anyway. I prayed, “Lord, please protect me and keep me safe.” Then I started to see Him. I started to see Jesus!
He came as a butterfly as He always has to tell me that everything’s gonna be alright. But He knows me too well. Around every bend, near every corner, every single time I felt unnerved, He came. He came 9 times to reassure me that He had everything under control and that I was protected.
I felt so loved, I smiled every time He came and said, “Hey Jesus!” One time, He swirled around my feet like we were dancing together. He made me feel so protected and worthy.
I know people see Jesus in nature and in other things. But He always comes to me as a butterfly and today was no different. Thank you, Jesus that you know me so well and love me so much.
Tune in tomorrow at 2:30 ET
Weight loss is hard! It just is. There is no easy way to lose weight. Don’t let anyone tell you it is. I have been training for 6 months. Yeah, I call it training because I am training my body to adapt to a new healthy lifestyle and it needs to be trained to do that.
My training consists of meal planning (Keto, Low Carb,Clean eating), Intermittent Fasting and lots and lots of water. I have meal plans using real food. Also, working out (treadmill and weights). I am lifting a greater amount of weight here lately and it makes me feel real awesome. I have fallen in shame, been lazy, cheated, but never once gave up. I rely on consistency and accountability. I have a team who supports me and keeps me going. Their friendship, banter and truth serums keep me in line and laughing.
I have lost more inches than weight. But I have gained muscle and experience. I push myself, talk to myself and continue to see the best in me. DFIT is the way to go if you are not sure you can do it on your own, need a true assessment of your weight loss problem and need to be held accountable. I did!
I am truly grateful to my trainers for assuming the responsibility of changing my non-healthy lifestyle in the a healthy one. The hard work has been on their part. Thank goodness they are patient. I’m a handful! You need them and they can help you. Check them out at: www.dfittransformation.com and take the assessment. They are truly miracle workers!
