Faith and Fat Loss Challenge, APPLICATION and prayer

It's Friday night and I am glad. 
I have had a week of work, work, workouts, projects and MORE. ALL good things, all BIG blessings being showered on me, but I am ready for an early night in bed and a little ME time with a book or movie. My workouts have been spot on this week. Fasted cardio, even on my day off, lifting (legs twice--score!!) and my diet is yielding results. Here's a shameless selfie after my workouts and breakfast, RIGHT before my LUNCH-NOM! 

My abs look better from the side, my waist isn't too narrow. 

It was suggested to me by a coworker that I eat a few more carbs. I had dropped the amount of my rice and my oats and I think I did it in the name of "cutting calories" and I know better. They suggested to that fasted cardio take precedence. and that I do 20 min AFTER my weights workouts.

Knowing is not enough, we must apply, willing is not enough, we must DO. -Bruce Lee

It was when I APPLIED what he suggested (I somehow knew it, I did, and I used to do it even) that I started seeing some different results again. SO many times in life, we have the knowledge, we KNOW it inside out, up and down, we read books on it, share articles on FB, we maybe even TEACH it. But do we KNOW it in our daily walk? Do we practice, do we embrace it as habit, lifestyle? 

I KNOW that cardio is essential for leanness. 
I know slashing calories is detrimental. 
I know reading the bible daily will encourage my heart. 
I know real food is better than fake. 
I know that God loves me.
I know that if there is a treat in my house, I WILL end up eating some. 
I know nutrition is 100% and fitness is 100% 
I know that spending time with my family is more important. 
I know, I know, I KNOW.... 

Do I apply? 

THE BIBLE says in proverbs: 

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

I think we can have lots of knowledge, but wisdom--understanding--comes with Application. We apply, we test these things to be true, we KNOW and then we apply.  

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.  ~ Charles Spurgeon

1st Phorm Athlete Search:

I usually pray, think and talk to God when I lift. I love pushing myself to the limit and having an encounter with the Almighty who pushes me also. I grind, I pray, I want to be humble in the gym, I want to be humble in all I do. It means letting my heart be soft to what God pushes me to do. It means being transparent when I don't have the answers. Praying all the time, letting HIM show me where I need work, he is transforming me on the inside as I work on the outside. 

I am excited too, If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I am in a contest to be a spokes person for 1ST Phorm supplements. As far as I know, its not the kind of contest you can vote for or push other than use HASHTAGS to have the 1ST Phorm people see you, see who you are and see your motivation for others and the healthy lifestyle. Wish me luck! Happy Weekend!
