"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

~Elisabeth Elliot

Day Two

So, I already miss chocolate AND pumpkin bread and wonder what on earth am I going to eat for breakfast and lunch now...

Physical Challenge: Do 25 of this awesome Pilates exercise...It is called the perfect curl and it was my favorite Pilates move that Ari taught me.

Perfect curl: Knees together, feet slightly wider than hips, toes turned in, and fingers interlaced behind head.

Exhale as you lift your head and chest up off the floor. Inhale on the way back down. Keep your head a couple inches of the floor at all times.

Some things to remember:

1). Inhale through your nose, deep exhale out your mouth...like you are fogging a mirror.

2). Always draw your stomach back toward your spine

3). Quality over quantity! You will gain more benefits through slow, controlled movement.

4). Adjust the exercises so that they are comfortable for you. You should feel tired but never in pain.


I hope you enjoy this one because I love it!

Nutritional Challenge: Keep a record of everything you eat and drink including condiments and the little things you pick at between meals...you would be surprised about how many calories are wasted on pointless things that don't even satisfy.

Spiritual Challenge: What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

So, I danced to "Shackles" by Mary Mary ...I just couldn't think of anything else and that was always fun at Bible College and at Young Married Beth Moore Retreats :)

What did you dance to
?


For your viewing pleasure...
