The sunshiny Summer days will give way to falling leaves and a nip in the air. Now is a great time to revisit your New Year's resolutions to see what you have accomplished and if some were plausible. What is it that you are searching for in your life? What station of life are you in? What challenges do you face? Which direction should you head? What is your purpose in life? All of those questions and more, are valuable to prayerfully consider.
As I sit here sipping my coffee writing this to you, I find this time of year as a wonderful time to regroup and refocus. It probably is a close second to New Year's. My own life has taken a different turn than the normal. Since I married this year, there are a lot of adjustments for me. My husband and I are reminded that we are newlyweds in an oldly sort of way. Living in a more remote area of Michigan, I am not training in gyms rather in clients' homes and businesses. I work out in a community recreation center and have to remind myself that since I am there as a member, I have to bite my tongue a lot. My family is no longer close by. Yuck! I don't like that part. Life is constantly changing and shifting, all very normal. All very much a part of God's interesting plan.
Here with Totally Fit 4 Life, changes and shifts occur, too. God has been so good! I have Him as well as my clients and readers like you to thank. Here is what is up on the board coming up:
The responses to the Spiritual Discipline series was a wonderful surprise! The more serious tone upset a couple of readers because my usual writing style they liked was missing. However, it seemed to be very successful meeting the spiritual needs of so many of you. I was surprised that Fasting had the lowest number of readers. How interesting. I will be answering some requests that have been made and praying for God's direction for future devotional segments.
There will be some fitness "Not Created Equal" posts coming up to help you know more about the world of health and fitness to make better informed decisions. Other valuable info posts will be coming as well. Much to the dismay of some, I don't give a bunch of how-tos all the time with witty titles to catch your attention. The ones I see sound great and have great content; however, most people struggle to implement what they read for the long haul. To get the most out of something like that, the average person needs more direct guidance. There are nuances that can only be fixed with a trained eye to get the true value of articles and posts of that sort. It also helps reduce the risk of injury!
Fall First Place 4 Health groups begin mid-September.
These weight management groups are a fantastic way to get started on the right track and continually see progress! Group size is limited to 8. These sessions are held via Skype. Skype has a free account you can sign up for. Discussion questions will be tossed out on Facebook for you to participate any time. Those posts will only appear on TF4L's Facebook page, not my personal one. Fitness Assessments are $25 per quarter, the only charge for this group. You can win a free fitness assessment or free grocery cart analysis by being the first one to correctly answer Monday's question! If you win, you aren't eligible for another 30 days to try again. Please, let me know if you want morning or evening and the day of the week you would prefer. Materials should be ordered 2 weeks prior to class, so now would be the time!
PraiseMoves live online classes will come available in October.
Watch for more info on this Christian alternative to yoga!
You will begin to see links to companies for materials and exercise gear.
I have made an affiliate agreement with them which means we approve of each other's businesses. Since I pay for this website, I can be picky about what goes on this site. You don't see objectionable content pop up anywhere! No ads for diet pills or seductive lingerie! The affiliate links are a way to make it easier for you to purchase First Place 4 Health materials, devotionals and Bibles from Christianbook.com. Power Systems, a reputable fitness supply company, has much of the equipment I have mentioned like TRX, stability balls, etc. of great quality. Their link will appear soon. Others may appear in the future, but only ones whose products would be valuable to you.
Cafe Press will have an online shop with Totally Fit 4 Life products available. You can proudly wear or use gear with the TF4L logo and Christian words of encouragement. The link for this pro shop will appear soon.
I hope to do more giveaways toward November and December.
Wouldn't it be nice to win a gift to give as a present to a loved one-- or yourself? Stay tuned for more info.
Without you and the Lord's help, I would just be making noise in cyberspace! You are a huge blessing to me and the life of Totally Fit 4 Life. May the Lord richly bless you!
