Why Is It Taking So Long To Reach My Fitness Goals?

 Do you ever feel like you’re doing everything right, but you’re not getting the result you want? Like you’re praying for answers, and they are not coming? What are you supposed to do when you’re working on your goals, but you do not see the results you’re hoping for how are you supposed to keep going?

Here’s what’s going on…

When You’re Working On Your Goals, God Is Working On You

God is working on you and He’s checking your heart motives. While we are focused on the goal, the numbers, and often are body parts, He is looking for our motives to be Godly, not fleshly.

Works of the flesh don’t work. They are weak, frustrating, and fleeting at best.

This is a good rule of thumb. When you’re working you’re little heart out, and nothing's working, you’re in the flesh. Oh, how I feel this, sometimes in the middle of my day I’ll stop and be like, Oh Lord, yep that’s me, not You! Let me...

Hey Fit sister friend! Do quotes motivate you? They really motivate me. For as long as I can remember, I’ve collected quotes. Have you ever noticed how within those few words, we can shift our mindsets?

One of the workout classes I go to has a screen that flashes quotes. For the last few weeks, every time I read one of these quotes, the Holy Spirit gives me a spin on it. They have been motivating me, and they will power your workout in a whole new way. I want to give you everything God has given me in hopes that it helps you too!

They can be the difference that turns your day around, gets you back on track, and fuels your motivation when you need it most.

Motivational Quotes with a Faith Spin

I want to make sure you know that I’m not saying that some of the worldly fitness quotes are bad, but the one thing that stands out is that God isn’t a part of them. He is our truest power source, so...

My Hot MESS of a Hormone Journey

 

Press the pink play button above to listen to this episode on the Strong. Confident. His. Podcast and don't forget to follow and share it with a friend.

Today is a woman-to-woman girl chat! Grab a cup of coffee and join me as I overshare about my journey through perimenopause and into menopause.

Here's what I'll cover:

  • Feeling unlike yourself...could it be perimenopause or menopause?
  • Insomnia, hot flashes, weight gain, anxiety, depression, ugh!
  • Hormones making you feel like you're going to lose it? 
  • Feeling very really alone, and like no one gets it or cares?
  • Wonder how long it takes to feel better and when it's going to end?

I have gotten hundreds of emails asking for me to share my hormone journey. I wish someone would have told me the things that I'm going to share with you today. Although every woman's hormone journey is different, and I'm not a doctor, it feels good to know that you're not alone!

Let’s dive in.

What Perimenopause Looked Like For Me

How to Hear From God with Amy Hale

Press that pink button above to listen to the full episode and share it with a friend.

Do you ever hear people say, I heard from God or God told me and you think man, I really want to hear from God! You find yourself being curious, how can I hear from God? I recently interview a powerful Bible teacher whose Instagram I follow, and I love the way that she shares the Word of God and shares how you can hear from God and how you can spend time with God and His Word.  

Amy Hale is a wife and mom who lives in Memphis, Tennessee. She loves teaching women how to cultivate friendships with God through daily prayer, study His Word by reflecting and studying His Word. 

About Amy Hale

I grew up as a Christian, I was saved when I was a child, but I did not start reading my Bible until about probably 10 to 12 years ago, very faithfully, and regularly. It changed my life. That sounds so cliche, but it absolutely changed my life and I can't stop talking about it. 

I spent many...

God Can't Do a NEW Thing if You're Holding onto the Old You

It's is the beginning of the year, and I have a message for you! God can't do a new thing and you if you're holding on to the old you. I want you to think about the things God has been calling you to lay down. What is blocking your success? Let's dive into who God says you are and how to release who we once were for His glory!

I Have Decided

I want you to think about the things God has been calling you to lay down. What is blocking your success?

 

I was putting my Christmas tree away, and this song came on the radio, and I could hear God's saying, "I have decided." A decision means there's no finish line. So, let's think about this…I want you to think about your fitness goals through Jesus in a completely new and fresh way. Let's dedicate our fitness to God. 

 

When we say we've decided we're deciding to dedicate our fitness, our health, our wholeness to God, deciding to do this takes away the finish line. Like you know, you can't just stop and stop and start...

2021 was challenging for all of us, to say the least. I don’t always share about my personal life outside of fitness, but I know God wants you to hear this.
