Mindset for Lasting Motivation

The number one question that I am typically asked regardless of the topic…health, parenting, business, relationships, faith etc.. is: 
How do you maintain lasting motivation & balance while consistently producing results? 
I will attempt to explain my mindset…….
The blueprint of a spirit of resilience is found in how you command & train your mind, body, & spirit. 
For me, the work I do in the gym makes all the other stuff possible. My goal is to make it so challenging in the gym that everything that happens outside the gym seems easy. Walk in with confidence. Walk out with results while inserting a subtle background music of "I OWN THIS." I cannot control all things, but I can control myself. My attitude, my actions, my reactions to what life throws at me. This instinctive drive cultivates a relentless state of mind that is fueled by a raw animal instinct not a thought process. A killer instinct. A humble confidence. A Beastmode. An edge. Often referred to as "the zone" Over thinking leads to doubt, leads to procrastination, leads to apathy, leads to compromise. Don't let frustrations and emotions drown your natural ability & confidence. Your confidence fueled by your preparation and watered by the seeds of grace offers an internal trust, a relationship, a permission slip to shine brightly, an instinct that unleashes & recruits greatness. 
Find it. Believe it. Live it!!

Healthy Electrolyte Drinks

Kids and I had an awesome track workout today! We had a great talk about hydration & electrolytes considering it was 96 degrees when we were running/working out. A couple recommendations. The new drink "body armor" has legit ingredients and recommended by pro team sport nutritionists. High in sugar but necessary for athletes who are sweating excessively and consistently. For example, football players exercising outside for two a days etc. Its available at Target. I use Ultima Replenisher when I feel the need. It has no sugar, legit & sweetened with stevia. My kids love it.

Go The Extra Mile

Channel your competitive nature and passion into your daily pursuits. Pursue personal excellence. Improvise, adapt, & overcome. Remain positive & patient while your habits lay the foundations of success in your mind, body, & heart. 
Will you continue to sacrifice what you want most for what you want in the moment?
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for The Lord, not for human masters" Colossians 3:23
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up " Galatians 6:9

Apple Nachos

I took some butter and a bit of coconut oil & sautéed oats & cinnamon... then added pecans & honey. Next, I threw apples in the pan & let all that simmer. I plated it with coconut flakes more cinnamon & some kiwi! Delicious!

True Beauty Comes From Within!!

The world wants to sell you an empty promise. 
Don't let it. True Beauty comes from within. Most nutrition and fitness advice only takes into account present performance and results without considering long term effects on your health. Health is wealth. Make sure you are planting the seeds within that will grow a strong sturdy tree that will provide you good fruit and shade in the future.

Courage is Fear that has said its Prayers

Come heroes we need you
We need to be set free
Come Help Us
We need the heart of courage
For Honor, For Freedom
For Love, that keeps us alive
Defend us from the dark
With your mighty light
Fight until there is Hope 
For it will never Fade
The shadows may rise but will always fall
Triumph we shall, For we have the Heart of Courage
NEVER AGAIN WILL WE FEAR THE DARKNESS!!
Part of the reason I workout alone is I am never truly alone!
Psalms 31:24 (KJV) "Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.” 
A song on my workout playlist!

Flat Ab Tip

Flat Ab Tip!
Stop doing so many crunches! It always built my stomach out rather than flat. Focus on a variety of planks/push ups, training your back, and cardio that gets your heart rate up. My kids and I have  awesome workouts on the beach. Have fun with fitness and help them develop heathy habits. Here are some candid photos we took recently.
We used an interval timer and did hole digging and alternated sprints with plyo's & planks. 

Are you a Problem Solver??

"My therapist set half a glass of water in front of me. He asked if I was an optimist or a pessimist. So, I drank the water and told him I was a problem solver" Unknown

Prayer is a Powerful Weapon

If all your prayers were answered from yesterday would anyone else's life change except yours? If you are reading this consider yourself prayed for. I'm fighting for you in the spiritual realm! 
Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, please send an angel with a flaming sword that turns every way to stand in front of me. Let that angel turn me back if I’m even tempted to go down a path that is not Your best for my life! Keep me in Your perfect paths for my life, Lord!
