kitchenblogger A few years ago I read an article that said that social media would become a leading contributor in an increase of people suffering from depression and guess what it's so true. Comparison of highlight reels makes us all forget to just be grateful who are we doing things for?
DAY 4 : For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

kitchenblogger He teaches me so much... Once upon a time I was a woman in pursuit of perfection and achievement oh and money lots of money... I would work hard all the time even in my sleep I would think of new business ventures. I'm not saying that any of that was wrong but one thing I've learned since having him that I didn't know is how to practice contentment. This little boy is teaching me to look at where my heart is. Where is my treasure? It's not on the earth. I'm learning that God is asking me to practice contentment, savor life, and practice gratitude because I am living a life abundant. How do you practice contentment?
D A Y 3 : "Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content." 1 Timothy 6:6-8

kitchenblogger DAY 2: But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.” 2 chronicles 15:7

Today's workout was such a mental challenge not because it was hard but because I had to fight the tears that wanted to well up in my eyes. I had to weight in for a 45 day paleo challenge that I participated in and I only loss 3lbs. Guys I feel like I've been working so hard and eating clean and yet only 3lbs. Then as I was working out and doing amazing things I was reminded that progress is progress and my journey is mine and it will take time. This verse speaks to me on this #fitnessjourney because I am working hard and in due time I will see the results that I want.

  •   haley8k I lost 5 lbs over a 3 month period, eating mostly paleo and working out everyday. Slow and steady Are you measuring inches? Because it was only 5 lbs, but well over 10 inches lost. 5d

  •   craftandfoodmama One amazing thing to take into consideration (which I am currently seeing) is that change is progressive and for 4 MONTHS of killing it- I only lost 1 lb.... But my body shape is completely changing. In this scale world it's easy to focus on those numbers. Especially after having a Bebe (I have 3!).... I try to remind myself that each current workout is actually for the benefit of next week, next month, because honestly - I won't see it right away. Just keep it up! Your body will change and you'll get to where you need to be mentally! @kitchenblogger 5d
  •   kitchenblogger @haley8k I'm going to measure and I'm breastfeeding as well 4d
  •   haley8k I thought that with bfing, the weight would just fall off, but I plateaued at 8 weeks postpartum and didn't start losing again until I got active everyday (three mos ago, my babe is 9 mos now.) It's all very mental for me, If I think about it too much I hold myself to an unrealistic standard and that just sets myself up for failure. Keep doing what you're doing, set some healthy goals, and be gentle on yourself 4d
