Renewed: Secrets to the Perfect Body!

** Warning: video with minor nudity. Discretion is advised. Used for illustration purposes in post.
Everyone wants the perfect body. I bet you do, too, or you wouldn't be reading this! The good news is there no such as the perfect body. So, for those of you dancing with delight that you are off the hook because you don't have to worry about something that doesn't exist, don't get too excited. Running out to the All You Can Eat buffet and lounging in PJs all day is no excuse to ruin what God gave you.

The bad news is that there is no such thing as the perfect body. For those of you who are disappointed there is no perfect body, take comfort in the fact that you don't have to try to measure up to something that doesn't exist! Trying to be someone else never works. Rather than drowning your sorrow in Ho-Hos, feel the freedom.

Since you didn't click your mouse to leave, I will tell you who ever had the perfect body here on Earth: Adam and Eve, before they sinned, and Jesus. Why? Because their bodies weren't affected by the sin-factor and how it caused decay, disease, and many other things akin to Pandora's Box to happen to all creation.

Personal stewardship is about taking care of the one body God gave you here on this earth. It's not about what you were born with, but what you do with it. Now that's out of the way, let me give you some tasty nuggets of truth about caring your body. "Okay, Char, "you say, "Why in the world did I bother to stick around for that? I could get this  info anywhere."

My reply is, "You are still looking for what you can't have. But I will remind you what you can do for the one you have. "

I really dislike the way marketing dictates to us what we should want, how we should look, and what we should have. But endless time goes into what hooks us. It got your attention. Why? Because you believe something is wrong with you and you should have the perfect body. Check out this video from ABC News  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA331SpzYy4.

Here is what you can do with the body you already have:

1. Learn to accept this body God gave you because it's the only one you get this side of heaven. In my blog post, "A Story Behind Every Body" I share a conversation with a woman in the gym where I worked. She wanted my body! I am 5'1" and she was 5'5". She wasn't happy with herself. The fact is we have this one body here on earth and will one day get a new perfect body in Eternity after we die, for those of us who know Jesus. It's what we have done to ourselves that we really don't like. We need to take care of what we have instead of obsessing over it.  2 Corinthians 5:1-8

2. Don't be a crowd-follower. Some of those crazy people would have you plunge to your death by following them over the cliff One gym manager told us as personal trainers doing what he taught us for sales, people would follow us to Hell. Yikes!  Learn to resist the hype because it messes with your mind. You will pay out a ton of money in fad diets that don't work, diet pills that poison your body, detoxes that mess up your biome, and gadgets that go in the Spring garage sale. We have enough reminders that our bodies aren't perfect. I know, mine reminds me every day. The secret to having a healthy, attractive body is to treat it with respect because God gave it to you. Take care of it through healthy eating, regular exercise, while maintaining a healthy, positive outlook on life. Philippians 4:8

3. Don't treat it to trash! You can't eat junk, sit all day, deprive yourself of vital nutrients, or torture yourself while expecting the impossible. With the way we treat ourselves, we might as well go to the local dump and set up camp! Change your mindset to change your lifestyle. It's really that simple. Be the man or woman of God to serve Him fully. Romans 12:1

4. Eat healthy, get enough sleep, and exercise. God didn't intend for us live the way we live. We need to seek out healthy, unprocessed foods, balance our diets, sleep 6-8 hours, take a day off break, and live an active lifestyle. It's important to keep it all in perspective. 1 Timothy 4:8

If you follow the principles I keep repeating over and over, you will do well. Believe me, you can get free workouts that promise to torch the fat and sculpt your body anywhere  on the 'net. Without a Healthy Lifestyle in place, it's all for nothing. There is no magic formula and I'm not handing you a free workout or diet plan. If you want direct help from me, visit my website and hire meCome join us for Healthy Lifestyles beginning January 12 to set a good foundation of health, fitness, and wellness from a Christian perspective.


Do you know Jesus? I hope you do. If not, please consider that t He died for your sins and offers you a new life on earth and eternity with Him. There is no other way. Without Him, you do this alone. With Him, you can have total health in all areas of your life.

May God bless you!
