What Are Your Intentions?

Hello Friends!

Does a doctor become a doctor overnight?


But he does spend eight years preparing for the day that he will be one. He goes to classes four to five days a week. He spends nights and weekends studying for his tests. When the day finally arrives that he is called a doctor...we know it happened because he intended it to.

He did what needed to be done to become one.

So, even though I didn't feel like leaving my nice warm home tonight and being blasted by subzero winds on the run to the gym tonight...I did anyway...because I intend on looking spectacular this spring.

As my brother used to say to the guys who would come to date me when I was younger...

"What are your intentions?"

What do you intend to do with this beautiful body that God gave you?

How do you intend to get in your exercise?

How do you intend to nourish your hard working body?

In the stark, cold of winter, it's easy to give up...but I'm here to encourage you to stay strong and stick it out. So that when that future will happen the way you intended it to.

Oh, and here's a little picture of a carob peanut butter bar that I had yesterday.
Only four little, sugar free ingredients that you can find out about here.
Have a good one!

  1. My intentions are good. I want to treat my body like the machine it is! Isn't it amazing how when you feel healthy your body really does feel like a tool. It's amazing what we can do. I have decided to make your pb bars. I have been craving chocolate like no other! These might be the perfect fix. Most vegans don't eat honey. You asked me about that awhile back and it has to do with the unnatural living condtions that the bees are put in. I've decided that I am going to be a vegitarian indefintely, but not a vegan. I probably won't eat much dairy anymore, but honestly it is a very expensive lifestyle. Greg and I are on a tight budget and some of the alternatives for a new lifestyle are costly. Learning to bake bread like you do and make soups that last for days has helped tremendously. I think all healthy lifestyles take some adjustment and some budgeting. The cheaper a food is, it seems the more processed it may be. Isn't that annoying? For example I really wanted to have chips and salsa for the Super Bowl. I made my own homemade salsa (which was awesome) but then the all natural tortilla chips were $2-3 more a bag. Ouch!

    At least we are good at making our own things and can save money in that way.

  2. My intentions are noble....but I get sidetracked by old bad habits.

    My desire is strong, so I know I will get there!

  3. What a great post today. I need to print it out and remember to read it. Especially on days that I just don't want to.
