I talk a lot about fitness and nutrition around here. My blog is about faith, family and fitness, the three most important things in my life! I have always loved fitness and have even made a career of it. (You can read more about that, HERE.) I believe that God gave us this body and we need to take care of it the best way we know how.I love the way fitness and good nutrition makes me feel. I feel great when I am eating right and exercising on a regular basis. My immune system is boosted, I have more endurance in my everyday life and I don’t seem to feel the aches and pains of getting older as much. Ha! But, I do not exercise or eat right to be skinny, although at one time that was important. My desire now is to be healthy. I want to be pain-free with a better immune system. I want to feel great from the inside-out. I want to experience life the way God intended, the best way I know how and that is by eating smart and exercising.
I now know the size of my waist has nothing to do with my worth.
I wish more young women knew that. I wish more women looked at themselves in the mirror and saw what God sees. He sees perfection. God doesn’t “do” ugly! He doesn’t make ugly! The things we call imperfections are perfection in God’s eyes. It’s what makes us unique. It’s what makes us who we are.
Believe me, I still fall into the rut and look at all of what I call imperfections in the mirror. I have to remind myself that this body carried three kids and a set of twins to full term. I have to remind myself that the scars I have on my skin each have a story and are MY STORY. I have to remind myself that God loves me regardless my weight or the size of my waist.
My self-worth does not come from the size of my waist or the weight on the scales. It comes from God! As long as I am right with God all of the other things will come.
Eating well and exercising are for me and God only. My body is my temple and as long as I am on this earth I will take care of it the way God intended!
With the new year coming up, now is the time to start taking care of yourself! Now is the time to start feeling better, not for anyone but, you and God! God wants you to live the life He intended for you. He wants you to be happy and healthy. He wants you to feel good about yourself!
We can do this together. My blog is here to help every woman of every shape and size to feel better about themselves. God wants you to feel better mentally, spiritually and physically. I don’t know about you but, I am going to take the challenge!
In the new year I will be venturing out into the world of workout videos. I will be bringing you more ways to build better nutrition and workout regiments in your own life. Be looking for those!
In the meantime, if you are interested in nutrition, workouts or bettering your health all together email me at Mandi@AmandaMiddleton.me.
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
