This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass

If you’ve read some of my posts on Instagram, you know that years of over dieting and over training led me to a body that simply stopped responding. For a woman whose career is in the fitness industry, it was really hard. I think any woman feels hard on herself for gaining 5 lbs; but 25lbs in a few months without a reason was really hard on me. I would pray and ask why the weight wouldn’t go- because I got very discouraged.

One day in the shower, God told me “You can help people more once you’ve personally experienced something, and you can also have more compassion for someone going through the same things.” This led me to share everything I’ve gone through: Very honestly. You would be surprised just how many women share their stories and are going through the exact same things. I can stand there and tell them the same thing God told me….This too Shall Pass.

If you’ve gone through something where your body stops responding to diet or training, here's my advice:

1. Give it time.

The only way to really reset your body is through it realizing it's not going to be under fed or over trained. The body is smart. If you repeatedly over diet, it thinks it's in starvation mode and will shut off to preserve itself. Keep being consistent with clean, healthy food, a good amount of calories and not too much cardio.

2.) Get your hormones tested.

Just make sure everything is going correctly on that end. This really helps if you’ve never had blood work for hormones tested before.

3.) Pray.

We all go through things to make us stronger. We grow in storms, and we have an opportunity to get ourselves off our own minds and not pray selfish prayers. It's easy to get into a trap of self pity, and keeping self on our minds - because heck, we are the ones in fact going through it, right?

On purpose, start praying for everyone else you can think of. And you never know, your story and experience could be what's needed for someone else that will experience the same thing in the future. You never know that what you're going through now….could be just the thing that helps someone else.

Stay encouraged friends.

Excellent Love

Excellent Love

Loving yourself is not an excuse to sit around, be lazy and eat donuts.


We are created for excellence- created to work hard. We’ve been given a spirit of self control, and discipline should be exercised in every area of our lives. If we all just did what we wanted, we all may be eating only cheeseburgers and doing nothing but watch tv. And you KNOW I love me some cheeseburgers and love me some TV, but all things in moderation to be our best selves. 

Again... balance.

So I will say this: We've all been given one life on earth. We all have the same 24 hours. I'm encouraging you to make the most of it.

Knock on doors. Follow your dreams. Pursue your passion.


Stay in balance with everything.
This is a daily decision (as it should be). The Bible says “Give us this day our daily bread” for a reason. We have grace for the day. THIS day. Don't worry about tomorrow - but work your hardest for tomorrow.
So love yourself in a balanced way. Do things you love. Have fun and enjoy life! BUT- don't let a spirit of complacency set in because the world has you coddling yourself.
Set goals, shake off self pity and get to work. Do it all while giving God the reigns.
Hope this helps. I love you.

Love Yourself

Love Yourself

I preach a lot about self love. I truly think if we can grasp that, we'd all be better off. It's not easy. We're hard on ourselves, and the devil injects poison in our heads (along with guilt, condemnation and fear). Especially as women, we are extra hard on ourselves.

I believe if we focus on who we are in Christ - and that we are fearfully and wonderfully made - this will help. I have a lot of confidence. Confidence is amazing; arrogance is not. Self love is necessary; pride is a sin.

The world always tries to misconstrue things.

The world wants you either full of yourself or down on yourself. Again, no balance. My confidence is not in me or what I can do, but Whose I am, Who lives in me, and what He accomplishes through me.

What's Your Best YOU?

What's Your Best YOU?

 

One of the things women do most is compare themselves to each other and compete with one another. BootyQueen is about inspiring and empowering you to be the BEST YOU - not the best someone else. We don't need to compete with each other, ladies. Let's build each other up. 

Lift each other up and be kind.

Maybe join a class at your gym? There's something just extra wonderful about high-fiving and giving encouragement 🤛🏼 to the other strong women in the same class as you, working their butts off too. Lift each other up and be kind. You have no idea what the person next to you is going through.You may be the only light they see that day.

Be YOU and be a LIGHT today.

Fearless

Fearless

Being fearless doesn't happen with the absence of fear. It's having fear come at you - and facing it head on.

You never know unless you try, and you never fail until you stop trying. Face your fears and do it afraid. Get your confidence from who you are in Christ. Start the day knowing that you're a joint heir (with Christ), a powerful warrior and a child of the Most High.

If you're going through something that seems hard, put your shoulders back, lift your head up, lift your eyes up and know:

The thing you've prayed will pass may be the very thing you need to strengthen you for what you're about to step in to.

Stay strong and be encouraged. You're loved.... unconditionally. 🙏🏼❤️
