If you could do ONE thing that would guarantee that you reached your your goals EVERY SINGLE TIME, would you do it?
I'm not talking about a magic pill that keeps you motivated or special 3-step plan that resolves all your excuses and makes the journey easy.
The truth is that the journey is supposed to be hard--so that you lean on God and not yourself.
HOWEVER, there is ONE thing that
YOU can do to guarantee you will succeed in reaching your goals..
.and it is this:
BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR GOALS
YOU CAN CONTROL.
First, take responsibly for your actions by being accountable to yourself, God and at least one other person whom you trust.
Track your activity, pray often & use Scripture to empower you and invite one person to encourage you and keep you focused on your goal.
Second, set goals that are within your power to control. You can't control how much weight you will lose each week, because honestly there are so many variables that alter our metabolism...
But you can control how much you SWEAT (sleep, water intake, eat clean/exercise, be accountable and time your meals) each day.
It may take some extra planning and preparation, but even when interruptions come,
FOCUS on what is in your ability to be responsible for.
When you focus on what you CAN control,
then God will take care of those things
that only He was intended to control!

And let us not grow weary of doing good,
for in due season we will reap a harvest,
if we do not give up.
It's been almost 16 months
since I gave birth to my third baby--Baby Cade!
And it has been the hardest baby weight to lose
this third time around!
My body has just not been responding
to my efforts like it use to..
.and yes it can be discouraging--often!
But that is why leaning on God's Word
is sooooo important!
Because when I line up
my feelings with His Truth,
I am encouraged to NOT GIVE UP!
I am encouraged to
keep doing what I know is right...
what I know is good for my body...
what I know is honoring to God...
and at the right time, in God's perfect timing,
I will reap a harvest--those RESULTS--
of all the work and obedience I've been sowing!
But even as I wait
expectantly for the PHYSICAL RESULTS,
I am reaping a whole host of spiritual blessings!
So when you aren't seeing results,
focus on what you can control...
getting your SLEEP & rest consistently...
hydrating your body with WATER daily...
making CLEANER choices with your food...
making your EXERCISE a priority weekly...
being ACCOUNTABLE to trusted friends & family...
and TIMING your activity!
And whatever challenges you are facing in your journey right now,
be encouraged that God is with you and
He will empower you to keep doing good
and strengthen you so you do not grow weary
that you will be fully equipped
to receive the harvest
He has prepared for you for His perfect plan!

Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit?
You are not your own. You were bought with a price.
Therefore, Honor God with your body.
