So true!! I started this journey nearly 9 weeks ago and started another 12 week round and I’m on week #6! Hurts so good and love every minute of it!! No pain.. no gain! 😜
Good morning kids! Today’s photo challenge is .. Words..
What kind of things do you say about yourself? Do you speak well of yourself, or are you critical of your appearance, your weight, your intelligence, your talents, your skills, and every other aspect of who you are as a person? I know I’m guilty of all of the above! 🙋🏼
I give you a challenge today..... 👏🏻
Monitor your words whether they be audible or the words you speak silently to yourself! We speak a lot about being kind to others and I believe that you must speak kind to yourself in order for that kindness to flow out to others! 🤗
After all we are instructed to watch our words because we are either speaking life or death into a situation or person!.... SPEAK LIFE!!! ❤️
“Let my words and my thoughts be pleasing to you, Lord, because you are my mighty rock and my protector.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭19:14‬ ‭
“Words can bring death or life! Talk too much, and you will eat everything you say.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:21
May we all find and speak the good in every encounter, person or situation we find ourselves in today!
I poke fun of Monday’s a lot but today I say Thanks Lord for a NEW day, a NEW week and 1 of 7 Days to make a difference in this world! 🌎
I skipped yesterday but today’s photo challenge is .. Shadow... “For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings [where I am always protected] I sing for joy.”
‭‭PSALM‬ ‭63:7‬ ‭
He is always my help and I’m very grateful that I’m continually in the shadow of His wings and it is there that I indeed do sing for joy!!
Today’s photo challenge .. day 13.. ( Costume) .. When I tied on my do-rag to take off my makeup last night I suddenly got a shining 80’s Poison inspiration! My fav!! Mr. @bretmichaelsofficial 😍🤘🏻
Day 12 of you know it.. photo challenge! (Time)
I've been walking through a study the last week in Ecclesiastes and it's reminded me that there is indeed a time for everything under heaven! Verse 4 is the one I'm concentrating on right now..... "A time to cry, a time to laugh; a time to mourn, a time to dance"
I'm a girly girl through and through! I love my cute little skirts outfits 👗, my heels 👠 and can't live a day without lipgloss 💄 but when I strap on my "badass" weight lifting gloves 🏋🏼‍♀️ there is a warrior released on the inside!( The kind that wants to go flip tractor tires) Hahaha! 🙋🏼 Seriously though there was a time that building muscles never appealed to me in the least! I was a cardio running through peoples sprinklers while walking in the neighborhood kinda of girl until I strapped on those gloves! 🥊
This picture denotes so much more than just my morning workout! If you look close enough you'll notice the scrapes and bruises on my legs and knees! I could photo shop them out but that wouldn't tell the story of where I am today! 💁🏼 My scars shows that I'm working on my goals and you can see the effort! Spiritual muscles are a lot different because even though they are gaining strength you don't see the scrapes, bruises and falls that have happened along the way that have them stronger! I wear my scars proudly because they tell a story! I've learned that when you try to "photo shop" those scars it keeps others from being inspired or encouraged with your story! Don't hide them because He makes ALL things beautiful in its Time (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
There is indeed a Time for everything and just as Ecclesiastes 3:4 states.... Yes, I have cried (still do), I have laughed (i'm always laughing) , I've mourned and you better believe I'm gonna dance! 💃🏼 Bruises, scrapes and falls He is there with me through it all every TIME! ⏰
Day 11 photo challenge.. (Horizon)... the beautiful view from my lunch this afternoon at my moms!
I run a tight ship over here! We are all working on our muscles over here but Chuck looks cuter doing it! ❤️😂
Day 10 photo challenge .. (black + white)
Week 8 and I’m still in a bit of awe that I’ve stuck with this that long! The one thing I’ve had to consistently tell myself through this process is that I’m not competing with anyone else but Me! Celebrate your small victories everyday!! Those little wins may be small to the world but I’m reminded this morning that God rejoices I’ve us! Your efforts to please Him don’t go unnoticed !! “The Lord your God is with you; his power gives you victory. The Lord will take delight in you, and in his love he will give you new life. He will sing and be joyful over you,”
‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭3:17
Day 9 October photo challenge..(Phone)
1 Peter 5:8 Most importantly, be disciplined and stay on guard. Your enemy the devil is prowling around outside like a roaring lion, just waiting and hoping for the chance to devour someone.
Oh how slick the enemy is! 🐺 He doesn't come in a red suit with pitch fork in hand but comes disguised in the loveliest and smoothest talking something there ever was but don't be fooled because the wrapping my dear may be lovely but the box is empty! 🎁 I'll pass! Bye! 🙋🏼
Todays challenge was Phone so instead of just taking a pic of my boring phone I decided to remind myself of this truth of above and "Phone" into the truth! 🙌🏻Over the past week I let disappointment dig it's ugly claws in me and isn't that just what the enemy wanted? You bet! You've heard it said that the enemy fights the hardest when he knows God has something great lined up for you! I believe this to be true of me because lately the battle has been raging! 🥊
After tuning into my workout accountability group last night I came away with a fervor to shake that attack off of me and I'm going into this week 5 with more determination, more wisdom and a resolve to tell the enemy to suck it! Yea, I know thats not the classiest of things to say but sometimes it’s necessary! 😜
Whatever you're struggling with today I encourage you to Phone into the truth and yes tell the enemy to Suck It!
Happy Monday! Let's do this!
Day 8 October photo challenge..(Morning) nothing says easy like Sunday morning like coffee in my cup ( if look closely you’ll see what it says) and a much needed rainy rest day! Monday’s a coming!! ☕️☔️☕️
Day 7 October photo challenge .. (Cuddly) nothing better than a cuddly red dachshund!! My Chuck Ronald! ❤️
Day October photo challenge .. ( Crafty) ... it’s Friday!! I celebrate for a lot of reasons but today I celebrate the fact that I’ve somehow mastered the cross jacks in my workout! 😜
I love taking on new challenges whether that be work related, fitness related or in this case a photo a day challenge! I’ve missed the first 2 Days of October already so we will start with day 3! Today’s challenge is looking down. 👀 As I took today’s pic Zechariah 4:10 came to mind.....
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin -Zechariah‬ ‭4:10‬
As in any new challenge we take on we all have to start somewhere and it’s always from the bottom looking up and in taking those small steps! Just as I started out on this workout challenge well over a month ago I’ve have progressively seen how with every week my stamina and muscle strength has grown! 🏋🏼‍♀️ When I started I barely could curl a ( yes I just said curl ..lol) 12 pound weight but now find that 12 pounds is seemingly light! Have I become Arnold Schwarzenegger? Nope but I’m a stronger version of Traci and I’m proud of that! 🙋🏼 So today whatever you are venturing out on and your efforts seem so very small just remember to not despise them because even the Lord rejoices to see that work begin in you! 👊🏻
A plank a day keeps the pirates away!! Arrrgh!
There needs to be more bean snapping in the world today!! ❤️
“But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬
It’s Monday! Who’s ready for this day? 🙋🏼... well sorta🙅🏼 Pick yourself up and get that motivation in gear even if you have to whine a bit doing it! 🍼 God has already promised you the strength 👆🏻Don’t let this world or some of the people in it suck the joy out of you today! 💃🏼 You’ve got this because He’s got you! 👊🏻
P.S In case you’re asking.... Yes... I do my own stunts!! 👯
Feeling like I'm in ole Paris this a.m! Crepes get in my belly!!
