John 15:1-8New International Version (NIV)

The Vine and the Branches

15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

Live in the Moment

live in the momentMorning Inspiration….

In the words of T.D. Jakes: Many times we get so wrapped up in achieving our life’s goal that we miss the opportunity to stop and be thankful for the things we have already achieved. When working diligently to complete a race we often stay focused on the finish line. While determination is critical in achieving anything, I challenge you to slow down the pace every now and then, look back at the ground you have covered and applaud yourself for making it thus far. Give God the praise even when the goal seems only a distant blur.

Always work diligently to complete your goals but don’t forget to slow down thank God for your accomplishments and then get back on track of what God has in store for you!!!

Proverbs 13:4

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.

Connecting Your Brain to Your Stomach

fixWhen you’re eating, your stomach takes its sweet time to get in touch with your brain. So even when your stomach has had plenty to eat, your brain may not realize it for as long as 20 minutes. The result? You could keep on eating like it’s your last meal, take in way more food than you need, and throw your weight loss goals off in the process.

But there’s a simple healthy eating solution for this: Eat more slowly. It should take you 20-30 minutes to finish a meal. The good news? You can easily increase the length of your meal (and whittle your waist in the process) by 5-10 minutes by fixing these everyday mistakes.

2014

Happy New Year…2014 is here and all of the old is out and bring in the New…I want to wish every one that follows me and very Prosperous New Year.

Happy-New-Year-2014-Text-SMS-for-girl-friend“Make New Year’s goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you’re interested in fully living life in the year to come.

Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level. Goals give our life direction.

What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?

What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?

What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?

Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down – as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go.

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.”
Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go: Hazelden Meditation Series

You are what you DREAM!!

dream bigMorning inspiration….image how you want to live and take steps in achieving your image.

In the words of iamrennyren…you are what you think you are. If you think your great you become great. If you focus on what it takes to become great, you speed up the process of achieving your goal. If you worry about what others are doing your taking away from your own personal growth. It’s an old saying, “If you mind your own you’ll tend to live long,” success comes when you’re not focused on others.

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others…1Thessalonians 4:11-12

Lets start Some Where

depositphotos_5541828-Big-Journeys-Begin-With-Small-StepsCreating a Healthy Lifestyle

Trying to lose weight might seem like the impossible, unless you have a personal trainer, gym membership or weight loss DVD investments. Well, I am here to tell you none of these are needed to reach your weight loss goal. As you prepare to create a healthier lifestyle there are a few steps you need to take. One of the steps that have prepared me for my healthier lifestyle change is, knowing where you come from.  Measurements are very important when starting an exercising regimen. In order for you to know where you want to be you have to know where you come from. Here are my measurements as of present day and my measurements I would love to be.  Once I have set my eye on the prize I have to take the next step, which is to create a plan that will help me reach my goal and since it took me 12 years to put on this weight I am giving myself 1 year to lose the weight. Since I am a firm believer in NOT DIETING I plan to make healthier balance plates, which are a protein, fast carb and slow carb, to eat every 3 hours whether it’s a snack or a meal and to exercise three days a week for 1 hour and supplement the other 4 days with a 15 a minute roll out bed exercise plan. My goal is to become Healthier and to motivate everyone around me in creating a Healthier Lifestyle.

 My measurements are:

Weight: 175

Chest: 37

Underneath breast: 34

Waist (at belly button): 38

Arms R & L: L 13, R 13.5

Thighs (underneath buttocks): 44

Upper legs R& L: L 27, R27

Where I want my measurement to be:

Weight: 160-155

Chest: 34

Underneath breast: 30

Waist (at belly button): 30

Arms: R11, L11

Thighs (underneath buttocks): 34

Upper legs: R & L 17-22
