i have this deep desire to do it all; do it all right, and have it together in the meantime. 
i know right.
be it first born thing. 
competitive nature or selfishness.
or some complex combination of all.
i have come to terms with my tenacity & sin involved in being selfish. 
a luxury i don't have in this season of life. 

i have a stronger desire to be transparent. grace-filled, compassionate & balanced.
how do i joyfully accept my God given fierce passionate spirit while mothering, running a household and taking care of ME?

this gave birth to happy. healthy . lean & fit. 

there are 2 things that must happen each day in order for me to healthily approach my responsibilities as a wife and mother. 

put my face in the word

the first quiets the selfishness that starts clanging away the minute my eyes open
the second releases the intensity of my spirit and balances my brain

it doesn't mean both in=peace out
but it does mean i can more objectively focus on my daily responsibilities. 

happy heart
healthy mind
lean body
fit spirit

I believe as women we innately struggle with contentment & exceptions. 
well, i'll speak for me.....i fight it momently!!!
And when this comes to body-image : how i view, treat and steward my body is uber important.
 i have 3 tiny little girls taking it all in. and a son paying close attention as well.

as women we are also sinfully disconent most of the time : with something. 
be it circumstantial  .  physical  .  or emotional
i'm pretty sure i could write a daily blog post about how this affects me!

so i hope this comforts your heart. that you're not alone in the journey. 
for me, its about treating my body as a gift. 
doing everything in my power to be healthy for my family. 
but its more important for my husband & children to have a visible example of 
happy wife and mommy. 
who's healthy and doing my best to have all aspects of my life lean of the world's influence 
and to be an example of being fit.  inside and out! 

step one : ask for forgiveness . because i fail miserably. 
step two : be grateful for jesus

so i'll post recipes and scripture and workouts i can't live without!
