{Welcome to the March Health & Fitness Challenge}


{March Health & Fitness Challenge}


Welcome!

Allow me to take a moment to say, Thank You!! Thank you for choosing to join me on one of the most amazing, yet difficult, adventures of my life!

My health journey has been a long one. One with so many setbacks and so many failures. This month’s challenge is not about me knowing what I’m doing and trying to get you to do the right thing. It’s not about diets. It’s not about guilt. It’s not about me leading you towards your goal. If you thought I’d be able to give you medical advice or answer your nutrition questions, you’ve come to the wrong place.

So what is it about then?

{Accountability Partners} is about my own personal journey. Although I understand that a target weight for my height is necessary to avoid health issues, this journey is not even about the number on the scale.

It’s about what I feel God leading me to in my own life: discipline and self-control.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Hebrews 12:11 (NIV)

Accountability Partners is a place for you and I to walk this journey together. To learn about nutrition and fitness together. It’s a place where women, who are tired of being sick and tired, choose change. At 30, I have come to understand that there will always be a group of women looking across the room and comparing, criticizing, or being jealous about the woman who looks like she has it all together.

I choose NOT to be one of those women. I choose to look around me, put the pettiness to the side, and instead say, “I have my issues, you have yours, but we are both on the same journey. We are both seeking to be more and more like Christ until He returns. So why not do this together?”

I need you, you need me…there’s strength and power in community!

So again, I welcome you!  Today, you’ve made a decision to take your life back. Today you’ve made a decision to walk alongside of other women who know the battle just as well as you do. You walk alongside women who are not a size 2 and who know the pain and heartache that come from the battles of weight gain.

You also walk alongside women who know the strength and power that is found in community. Women who know the sweet taste of victory with every day they choose to exercise and eat well.
