Ready or Not, Summer Is Here! Is Your Summer Body Ready?

It’s summertime!  Do you have a summer body?  It’s time for cookouts, vacations, and pool parties.  Did you say “pool parties”?  Does that mean I have to wear a swimsuit?  But I’m not ready!

you have a summer body

You’ve seen the quote.  You like it.  You share it on all your social media, because it’s freeing…..

How do you get a bikini body?  Put a bikini on it.  

Woo-hoo!  And so we do….. Or do we?

My Journey to Ditching the Scale – Faith and Fitness

Over a week ago, I had the opportunity to be a guest on my friend Glenneth’s blog.  I have been following Glenneth for quite some time.   I love her approach to health and fitness that includes NO SCALE!  In fact in one post, she wrote how she even refused to weigh in at the doctor’s office.  Really?!?!  Can you actually do that????  Yes you can.  I know it not only because Glenneth shared how she did it, but because I followed her lead and began refusing the doctor’s scale as well!

Race Month in Indiana Still Has Me Running My Race

My word for 2016 was run.  Hebrews 12:1 says “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably know that I’m a runner.  Cardio is my thing.  I lift and do yoga, because I know those things are beneficial for me, but given my preferences, I’d just do cardio.  I’ve been a runner for a long time.  I’ve completed over a dozen full marathons and 60 half marathons and too many 5Ks and 10Ks to count.

But races aren’t what this blog is about.  It’s about running my race in life.  This blog is a reminder to  keep my eyes on my own paper.  It’s about staying in my lane.
