Healthy Lifestyle Shortcuts: Lesson 2

Periodically on my blog I will post my fun Healthy Lifestyle shortcuts to help keep life a little simpler for you. Today is an easy peasy healthy meal that I absolutely love!

As I’ve shared in the past I’m not the best cook but not the worst, so I guess you can call me an average cook. When I’m in the kitchen I like quick, simple, easy and healthy. So today I’m sharing my all time favorite salad.

Diet is key for me to maintain a healthy lifestyle so the more foods I truly LOVE eating, the easier it is for me to keep making healthy choices.

I hope you enjoy my All Time Favorite Kale Salad!

Ingredients

  • kale
  • grilled chicken
  • olive oil
  • lemon
  • pine nuts
  • parmesan

Directions

  1. Wash the kale; remove stems and chop into bite-sized pieces, place in bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Drizzle over kale salad.
  3. Add grilled chicken and sprinkle with pine nuts and parmesan and there you have it, Linda’s All Time Favorite Kale Salad. Enjoy!

What Do You Truly Believe?

I pray that you know Jesus in such a profound way that you do not fear death but that you look forward to the day you will meet Him. In John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

I invite you to take a moment today and reflect on what you truly believe. Let’s be grateful for today and this moment of life.

I dedicate this video today to my friends Derik and Sabrina that are now with Jesus. Thank you Lord that you allowed me to meet those two beautiful souls and pray with them and talk with them about You.

I pray that through my videos you experience a glimpse of Christ love each and every day. Thank you for watching.

Video: How To Pray

A Simple Daily Prayer

Holy Spirit move through all our hearts.

Move in the hearts of those sick and hurting.
Move in the hearts of those in hospital beds and waiting rooms.
Move in the hearts of our nations leaders, our children’s schools, our marriages, our families and our friendships.

You are a God of peace, order and unity not anger, chaos and division.

Your word says, “I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that my Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” John 14:13-14 As long as our prayers our in alignment with your will Heavenly Father it will be done. Thank you Lord.

Lord, I pray in the name of Jesus for a movement of love and peace, a love that is found through Jesus Christ alone. I’m praying for millions of salvations worldwide and an unquenchable thirst for your holy word, to know it, believe it and live it. Holy Spirit fill us each and every day. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Look at what YOU did for me!

Is being too tired a good excuse not to follow through on your goals?

I really wanted to use that excuse this week. But when I thought about my desired outcome to feel great when I run my half marathon I decided to push through my resistance.

But then, even in the middle of pushing through, I started thinking about ways to cut corners the next day! Have you ever done that?

Extra accountability is what I needed this week! So I stepped it up. I made a commitment to video and let you know when I completed my next goal (4 mile run).

I want to say a big THANK YOU to my blog community for watching this and my friend Stephanie for running with me because I would have totally cheated myself and ran fewer miles. Confession: I get lazy and I like to cut corners 🙂

Let me know who is keeping you accountable in your goal? Do you need to step up your accountability to make sure you follow through? Everyone who comments will be entered to win a copy of The Mended Heart by Suzanne Eller.

What’s Respect Got To Do With Healthy Eating?

In my blog post 7 Simple Truths to Accountability {that will hit you in the gut} Simple Truth 3 states: Accountability shows respect towards others, and you are honoring yourself with self-respect when exercising accountability.

Why is it so important to respect yourself?

Over the years I’ve learned that you cannot give away what you do not have. So the more you respect yourself, the more respect you can give away to others.

One of my core values is to respect God first. Romans 12:1 tells us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship.

So how do we offer ourselves as living sacrifices? One way I’ve learned how to do that is by eating healthy, exercising and taking care of myself. This is honoring to God. I don’t claim to do it perfectly. Many times I mess it all up. But then there are days when I seem to get it right.

My prayer today is that each one of us would have a deep longing desire to respect God first with our lives. Leave a comment and share how you will honor God with your life today?

7 Simple Truths to Accountability {that will hit you in the gut}

Almost five years ago I learned one of the most valuable lesson of my life.

Every time I think about it I almost have to catch my breath. This lesson lives within the central core of my beliefs, deep in my heart, permanently etched on my mind.

Just five months fresh off of life support and three months out of radiation I joined Team In Training with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to run my very first half marathon. It was thrilling to think about getting my body back into shape after the hell it had been through the previous year with chemotherapy, antibiotics, steroids, paralytics, and many more drugs.

I had no idea how in the world I was going to achieve such an enormous goal, 13.1 miles. But looking back I now see the unique thread that brought this dream of mine to fruition.

accountability

I did not understand then what I am fully aware of now.

Accountability works!

Anytime I set out to achieve a goal or even the slightest lifestyle change, the guaranteed formula for a successful result is staying accountable!

Here are 7 Simple Truths to Accountability that will give you a little gut check on why we must invest in accountability.

1) If we want to grow and make a lasting difference in our life we must maintain accountability. It is vital.

2) Accountability means showing up for yourself ­– living your best possible life right now, today!

3) Accountability shows respect towards others, and you are honoring yourself with self-respect when exercising accountability.

4) Accountability oozes from your core values, your character. Integrity. Honesty. Beliefs. Truths. Standards.

5) Accountability means you are stepping up to the plate and taking responsibility for yourself. There’s no more room for excuses, for blame or for a lack of better words laziness.

6) We are accountable for how we spend our time. We all get 24 hours a day, no one gets more, and no one gets less. It’s our choice how we choose to spend it.

7) And finally accountability and procrastination do not occupy the same space. Which one do you choose to partner with?

Starting February 1st I am offering a FREE 28 Day Accountability Group. This group will be a small community to support and encourage one another. We will grow and learn from each other while moving towards our individual goals. It’s an opportunity to invest in ourselves. If you would like to join us, click here to sign up. Please invite your friends and share on your social media sites. Don’t crumble up and throw away your 2015 goals yet if you’ve fallen off the wagon because together we can make them happen!

I tend to start my new year by thinking of how I can make personal changes, goals and dreams come true in the year ahead. While I will do those things, God has sweetly reminded me to value others above myself. (Philippians 2:3) I pray you will join hearts with me and pray for all those who are battling cancer today.

Please leave a prayer or comment below as we lift up cancer patients today. Thank you sweet friends. I love you! Happy 2015. It’s going to be a great year.
