The Baby Daddy Workout [Giveaway!]

Some of you may remember when I returned to blogging, I mentioned that I read/write in a prayer journal to assist me with my health & fitness goals. I wholeheartedly believe that when I include God in my pursuits, the burdens are removed from my path. That’s not to say the experience is without challenges, but I have witnessed Him remove the roadblocks out of my way and make me stronger. Therefore, I attribute everything I’ve accomplished in life to God because I know I could not have done it without Him. Health & Fitness is no different.

People often ask me how do I stay so focused, what keeps me motivated, etc. So on Sundays, I want to share a message from my prayer journal that inspired me the most and helped me push through the challenges of the week. If this is not for you, when you see the blog title “Prayer Journal,” skip it. This is for everyone who believes in the power of God.

Prayer Journal Message: There are going to be days when we feel we just can’t do it. Everywhere we turn, there is another temptation, another chance to blow it. Occasionally, we might even give in, but that is no reason to give up. Part of being human means we won’t succeed every time we try something. That’s okay. When we find ourselves in situations where we give in, that is when we need to call on God, asking for forgiveness, strength, and determination. God shall send forth His mercy and His truth, and we will be able to pick up from where we left off and do even better the next time.

Today’s Thought: Losing one battle doesn’t mean I’ve lost the war!
