Day 7 of the Reset: Rest 

  

🙌 Last day of the challenge!

Day 7 of #reset2016: Rest. How do you rest? Show us how you unwind. 
I personally have a tough time sitting still. Though I know I need rest, I find myself feeling a little bit anxious because there are always things I can do. Lately I’ve adopted a more active resting approach so that I get rest, but my mind isn’t distracted or worried. Here’s my list of rest activities 😆
1. Getting lost in a fiction novel. 

2. Watching a tv show while doing an easy home task like folding laundry. 

3. Catching up with a friend or family member by phone or video chat.

4. Watching snapchat videos or reading my Twitter timeline. 🌾👀🌾

5. Home spa day– facial, manicure, tub soak. 

6. Going for a walk to the beach. 

7. Cooking. 

8. Finding a comfy spot and chilling out to good music. 

9. Prayer and meditation. 

10. Writing poetry, short stories, or more concepts for my next book.

Reset Day 5: Inspiration 

  
Day 5 of #reset2016 is #inspiration. What inspires you? For me, it is nature. I love marveling at God’s creation and feeling so tiny engulfed in His love. The ocean is my favorite, the mountains my second. ❤️

Reset Day 4

  

  
{Day 4 of #reset2016} is #Goals. Everything is goals these days, have you noticed? Relationship goals, fitness goals, life goals…everything goals. I’ll be honest– in a way, I kinda like it. We should strive to do and be more, and there’s nothing wrong with being inspired by others. In your being inspired, just don’t forget to really check yourself. What if you were meant for more, or just something different? My goals should inspire you to find out what it is you were meant to be doing. 
My goals are related to fitness, my business, and my health. I’ve made smaller tasks to help me get to these goals as well as some commitments. I wrote my goals down and committed them to God, then I also emailed them to my close friend. That’s accountability. 
What are your goals?? Share with me on Instagram (@divinehostess) and tag me in your post as well as @coachpsays
Have a great day ❤️

Reset Day 3

  
{#reset2016 Day 3: Mindset} What motivates you?
What motivates me is my destiny. Let me explain… Though it isn’t easy and not always fun, I am willing to work hard and delay my gratification for a much greater good. Everything is wrapped up in my destiny so that includes the future family, the success of my business, my health, etc. I believe changing the way I think has made it easier to complete the tasks in front of me. 
Romans 12:2 says, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

‭‭

Staying motivated requires discipline and mine comes from knowing I’m pleasing God when I stay on course and that in that, there’s great reward. 
Honestly, I’m not always motivated so on tougher days I have a small, but very amazing handful of friends I can go to. My friends and family elevate me, pray with me, make me laugh, run alongside me, and believe in me– I do the same for them. 
Just tuning into the challenge? That’s ok? Share today and tag @coachpsays and me. ❤️

Reset Day 2: Devotion

  
{Day 2 of #reset2016: Devotion} One scripture that speaks heavily to my spirit right now is Philippians 4:8. This is the amplified version and I love how colorful the picture is of what our minds should be fixed upon each and every day. 

We can either look at our circumstances, or we an look up and fix our eyes on God and the destiny He’s created for us. 
Yesterday was particularly tough. I felt like I was growing a bit faint, but I was able to come back to this and get centered.

The Top 7 Vegetarian Recipes You Need in Your Life

Hey healthy bunnies!

 

I hope your 2016 is off to a fantastic start! Do you have your vision set? Are there goals in mind? I have a list of goals for myself, but health and fitness is one of my top priorities (as it is every year).

 

I asked via Twitter if anyone was in need of vegetarian and vegan recipes for the new year since many do the Daniel Fast, a cleanse, or a 30 day vegetarian challenge. Even if you are doing none of the things I listed, I am sharing with you some amazing and delicious recipes that you must have! Simply click on the picture to be linked to the recipe.

In addition to the recipes list below, I highly recommend you check out my Smoothie Playlist. Smoothies are a great snack, meal replacement or dessert depending on how it is made.
