This blog is part two of our Jesus Series and today we open our hearts, minds, and Bibles to learn from Jesus’ example in our fitness. This series is important for every Christian to know because we rely on the Word for help with our marriages, parenting, and finances, but what about our health, fitness, and wholeness?
Let’s dive in!
Elisabeth Elliot’s quote captures this perfectly: “We cannot give our hearts to God and keep our bodies to ourselves.”
Has this ever happened to you? You walk into your closet to get dressed, and as you try on outfits a conversation starts in your mind—thoughts like, I need to lose weight, I need to start working out more, I hope no one notices the weight I’ve gained. You find nothing seems to fit right, and it’s making you miserable. You frantically change a few times before finally settling on your go-to outfit for those days.
How many times have you promised to eat...
The holidays are here and so are their temptations! I want to arm you with a battle plan to keep first things first and stay healthy, happy, and fit God’s way.
This is your first blog in a series of Holiday guides to health, mindset, getting your workout in, detoxing, gift ideas, recipes, and more.
Okay, let me first say thank you for the 5-star ratings and reviews. If you haven't yet left yours, please do so here.
Thank you in advance for helping me help other women know Jesus in their food, fitness, body image, and worth, and Live Strong. Confident. His.
Okay, I’m going to kick this series off with where we win or lose our battles, our minds!
As a man thinks, so is he. Proverbs 23:7.
Your mind is the steering wheel of your life, so let’s drive you into the New Year Happy, Healthy, and Fit God’s way. I’m hearing Carrie Underwood sing, Jesus, take the wheel, and that is exactly what we want.
Ever wonder why being consistent with your food, workouts, and motivation is SO hard?
This blog will give you the reasons why and 5 things you can do to that work!
I want to introduce you to Christine because her problem is many of our problems, but she beat it in the Lord.
She came to me because she couldn’t stick to her goals. She would do really well for a couple of weeks, but then she would quit. She asked me to help her understand why she kept quitting. I asked Christine if she had ever made God the God of her fitness goals. She laughed and said, “What do you mean? He doesn’t care about the forty pounds I need to lose.” As we spoke, Christine started to cry and said, “I did this to myself. I did this to my body. Why would God want to help me, and how could He help me?”
Maybe today you feel like Christine. You’ve started and stopped your fitness goals more times than you can count—but you really want to see them through.
Have you ever just felt like not working out? You would rather fold laundry than a single lunge. Sister I have been there! But I have a few secret weapons of motivation up my sleeve to get me out of that rut and into the gym. Today I am going to share them with you!
Let’s dive right in!
Our first stop is the WORD!
“She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong.” (Proverbs 31:17 ESV)
“For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;” (Proverbs 2:6 NKJV)
I want you to challenge yourself to transform your workout motivation! Don’t start the conversation with yourself, well I don’t have time today, I don’t really feel like it. Stop it by saying ay aloud, “Jesus, help me take care of my body!”
The devil will talk you out of working out with thoughts like you’re never going to look like you used to, it’s not working look at you you’ve been working...
"A day in the life" sounded a bit indulgent, but I recently did a survey on my Instagram, and it was one of the most requested topics. I heard things like, Kim take us behind the scenes, how do you do what you do, how do you juggle it all, how do you work out and work and stay focused, eat healthily, and stay on track… I also heard comments like I want to tag along with you for a week and learn. So, I’m welcoming you on over, come on in and share a day with me and then I’ll wrap up with the big takeaways, the tips you can take and put into your day that took my years to learn!
I know what it’s like to live without order, without a plan, without structure, and by my emotions, and it taught me everything I know because it never worked, it can’t. The chaos showed me why God desires order, and He desires that for you too, friend.
Topics I’m going to cover today include focus, creating work blocks, morning and evening routines, having a daily...

Sisters, do you ever look at someone and think, wow, how does she do what she does? How does she run a business with kids, how does she show up on social media so consistently, how did she get started, what keeps her motivated, how does she balance all of this, and still takes care of herself?

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.
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...
