Hidden Meanings and Ramblings

Messages come from all different places and faces.

"The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results."

Once I took a step back, I realized that this verse meant so much to me not because of its obvious text, but because of the hidden meaning that only I saw that day. To me, it means that the PASSION of someone who is trying to HELP another, not only has great power but will produce great results. I hope I don't offend anyone by taking this into the business world, but I'm gonna.  This is how I run my business--with true committment to helping others. When you come from a place of wanting to help others and not use them to get ahead for yourself, you see amazing things start to happen. The amazing things that are happening in my business right now are NOT because I try to sell workout programs to every person I meet, or make someone buy Shakeology--it's because I've consistantly been there for people when they start their journey and I help them when they're ready. Believe me, I know that I'm far from perfect. I'm not the size 2, ripped woman that I some days wish to be. I'm the average size 8 woman, who has insecurities and is trying to be better. Does that make me "righteous", no. But I think that makes me a good person, and a relatable person.  

But I digress.

I've been really pushing myself in my workouts lately and I'm seeing the muscle definition as proof. This last phase of ChaLEAN Extreme is called the "Lean Phase" and its because it utilizes doing both upper body and lower body exercises together. When you do them together, you're forced to use your abs to stabilize, and get ripped without even doing a crunch (AKA my kinda workout). I did circuit 1 on Saturday and couldn't move my arms for 2.5 days, then I did circuit 2 on Monday and currently STILL am sore in my back (lots of rows!), and today was circuit 3. It was totally focused on shoulders while incorporating squats, lunges and deadlifts. If this workout follows suit, then I should barely be able to move my shoulders by 7am. Luckily tomorrow I'm doing interval training :)

Joe-Joe and I also got a new bed delivered!! I'm currently typing this post from it because I find it hard to avoid it past 7pm. P.s- if you know of any good deals on bedding, LET ME KNOW! We may have bought a new bed, but I'm still super cheap.

And because this post had no pictures, enjoy these random ones!
