Day 7: Food Experiment!

Today is the third day I am going to talk specifically about food.  Then I am going to move onto how supplimenting can help or hinder our MIND, BODY, SOUL experience of our health!

I challenge each of you to forget about what you have been taught to think of as “breakfast”, “lunch”, and “dinner”.

If you feel like having soup for your first meal…then do it!

If you feel like having a creamy protein shake for dinner…then go for it.

If almond butter slathered between ham wrapped with cabbage is what you want for a snack…why not?

As long as you are thinking WHOLE FOOD…not processed….THEN DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF  to the labels of meals!

Day 4: Beware of Jump Squats

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”
Philippians 4:13



Do you like feeling strong?

Do you like having strength?

Do you like a bit of shape with no jiggle?

Do you want feel like an amazing woman?

Then do jump squats!!!

But beware…you will gain curves…you will gain strength…you will feel strong…you will feel like a warrior!

If you don’t want any of these side effects…then never ever do a jump squat ever…lol!

Some other great health benefits to jump squats is you can get a work out done in less than 10 minutes and reap the benefits for hours, days to come.

It will increase bone density.

They will improve metabolism.

They can be done ANYWHERE!!!

Make it into a game with your daughter….your children.   How many jump squats can you each do in one minute.  When traveling you have to do 10 jump squats before you can get back into the car.  Jump squat your spelling words!  Do jump squats to Philippians 4:13!

Final benefit:

You truly can’t help but feel the MIND BODY AND SOUL connection when you do jump squats….I dare you to take the challenge and start doing just 10 jump squats each morning for the rest of your 21 days and see if you don’t feel the connection!

Day 1: Detox Challenge!

Detoxes are all the rage these days.  It has become quite the buzz word.

We read about these “detoxes”, diets, challenges, etc…especially for losing weight.  But what about a detox that is about the mind body and soul?
What if a person focused more on how to change their thinking…their internal compass about their body during a cleanse, a challenge?
What if we picked a prayer or devotional to reflect upon while trying to make a physical change?
What if for 9 days you prayerd a specific novena?  
What if you chose a 21 day devotional to reflect on?
What if you did a 40 day bible based study to create change within your challenge?
What if you put some SOUL into the mind and body of your challenge?
What if you gave your flesh some substance…something sustainable that will forever transform your mind and soul?
When we focus too much on the asetecs we lose the heart of why we should make changes for our mind body and soul.  Changes should be about health.  Loss should be about fat loss not weight loss.  
Instead of focusing on losing….focus on what you can gain.
GAIN better health.
GAIN strength and muscle.
GAIN undetstanding of nutrition.
GAIN knowledge of how to nurish your mind, body, and soul.
Pick a number.  I like using biblical numbers:  3, 7, 9, 21, 40…..when I want to make and create changes in my life.  Whether it is a physical goal, a spiritual goal, a personal goal….no matter the area in my life  I want to create a change, I never forget to keep it whole….to remember  it must be a mind, body, soul connection.
Once you have set a number, pick what you’re going to reflect on for that set number of days.  Specific prayer?  Book? Devotional?  Bible verse?  
Now get a notebook, journal, something to write in each day.
On the first page you are going to make your commitment.  Example:  During these ?# days I will read from ____________ or I will pray _______________.   I will write down each day what I am feeling: mind, body, and soul.  I will write down my commitment of thse changes I am wanting to experience for each area of mind, body, and soul.

Example:
Mind – Learn Gods word about change.
Body- I want to make these changes not just to look better but to feel better.
Soul- through this I will learn to put in my heart God’s love for me.

Look at this Mind, Body, Soul experience, challenge, as a way to become better commited to your Faith, Fitness, and Food Goals….
Philippians 4:11-12
Learn to be content with the here and now…yet strive to improve and grow in your walk with the Lord: mind, body, and soul!
