Weightless Wednesday: Week 1


We started up again another challenge last Friday on the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. She is our guide, our light, our strength.

We have about 9 ladies joining us this time around. We do have 3 from the first group. I am excited to keep on walking on this journey towards whole body wellness with these sweet ladies.

We started off again talking about Goals.

Smart Goals.

Specific  Measurable  Attainable /Realistic  and Timed

My new goals for this challenge are

1.  I will exercise at least 5 times a week at 30 minutes or more having 3 of those times being strength training.

2. I will consume at least 32 oz of water intake daily with an increase of at least 3 days to 64 oz of water.

3. I will write in my journal at least 4 times a week  one bible quote and notes from our book discussion of Captivating Revised and Updated: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul.

This challenge I have started off 16 pounds less than last one! I am blessed to continue on this road to whole body wellness; mind, body, and soul!

You must know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is within the Spirit you have received from God. You are not your own. You have been purchased and at a price. So glorify God in your body. 

 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 

With the Love of Christ,

Well, we just finish up our 6 week catholic fit mom challenge.

Here is a mini recap of what we went through these last 6 weeks.

*  Mindset plays a huge role in your success or failure in reaching your goals. You must believe that you are worth the effort and that it is possible. And you must find your motivation and set meaningful and challenging goals.

Nutrition plays the largest role in your ability to lose weight and stay disease-free. But it can also be one of the most challenging issues to address. Planning and preparing ahead of time is key, as well as becoming educated on what you are eating and where it is coming from.

Exercise is the best way to feel good, have more energy, develop confidence, and give you the momentum needed to make more challenging adjustments, such as changing what you eat. Exercising with a combination of strength training, burst training, and core training—done at high intensity!—will yield the best results.

 • The people that you surround yourself with are going to play a huge role in whether you can keep your momentum going and stay on a healthy track.

 It was very nice and I really enjoyed the fellowship with other moms. I really enjoyed talking with them on Wednesday night. It was almost like a mom’s night out but in my pjs.  We are so many out there, trying our best to be what God has called us to be! We need each other, we need our health, we need Christ.

For myself, I lost over 10 pounds and I have gain some muscles and truly a new way of life.  It’s just the start.

I am going to start a new 6 week Catholic Fit Mom Challenge on October 7th, Feast day of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary just to finish in time for the end of my 40th year and Thanksgiving week!

I want to add a very special aspect to it. I am going to write another post on that aspect but it has to do with a book that it is truly changing my heart for Christ.

Stay in Tune!

With the love of Christ,


Job’s Why

Job with his friends by Gerard Seghers
Job broke the silence and cursed the day of his birth. This is what he said:
May the day perish when I was born,
  and the night that told of a boy conceived.
Why did I not die new-born,
  not perish as I left the womb?
Why were there two knees to receive me,
  two breasts for me to suck?
Had there not been, I should now be lying in peace,
  wrapped in a restful slumber,
with the kings and high viziers of earth
  who build themselves vast vaults,
or with princes who have gold and to spare
  and houses crammed with silver.
Or put away like a still-born child that never came to be,
  like unborn babes that never see the light.
Down there, bad men bustle no more,
  there the weary rest.
Why give light to a man of grief?
  Why give life to those bitter of heart,
who long for a death that never comes,
  and hunt for it more than for a buried treasure?
They would be glad to see the grave-mound
  and shout with joy if they reached the tomb.
Why make this gift of light to a man who does not see his way,
  whom God baulks on every side?
Job 3:1-3,11-17, 20-23
Today’s reading took me by surprise. Those questions that Job asked, I ask myself daily.  After you lose a child in the womb or that still-born child that never see the light, you ask why?
Why my sweet little boys or my one baby girl?
Why does one child breathe the air and the other never open his eye?
I can’t answer these question or those asked by my sweet children here.
But I know that I will not live with a bitter of heart.
All I can do is to put my trust in my Lord and live.
“I wanna live like there’s no tomorrow
Love like I’m on borrowed time
It’s good to be alive.”
Jason Gray

Worry is useless.




Weightless Wednesday: Challenge Week 2


You must know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is within- the Spirit you have received from God. You are not your own. You have been purchased and at a price. So glorify God in your body. 

 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 

We had another successful week. Thanks to this challenge and eight awesome ladies joining me; I have been able to exercise everyday at least 30 minutes a day, drink at least 64 ounce of water, and lost 2 more pounds. (180)

Little by Little .

Our first week point winner was my sweet friend Ann Marie. She won a book by Scott Hahn, Hail, Holy Queen  in honor of the feast day of Queenship of Mary. Yeah!!

This week’s challenge, we are focusing on nutrition. Another reason why I like Dustin’s 6 week challenge program are these teaching videos and the journal.

Here is an insert from Dustin of Fit Mom for Life on nutrition.
Below are 16 guidelines that are the cornerstone of healthy eating and good nutrition. If you follow these most of the time, you will get great results, have more energy and feel better.

Rules to eat by 
1. Don’t eat carbs alone.
2. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t eat it.
3. If your great-grandma didn’t eat it, don’t eat it.
4. Eat breakfast.
5. Eat four to six small meals per day.
6. Keep your portion size under control.
7. Drink three to four quarts of water each day.
8. Don’t drink calories (juice, soda, alcohol. )
9. Avoid fake sugars.
10. Eat enough protein.
11. Don’t eat grains after 4 p.m.
12. Be careful what you eat in the evening.
13. Give yourself two to three cheat meals per week.
14. Be prepared.
15. Eat grass-fed meat and free range poultry.
16. Buy organic when possible and practical.

These rules don’t sound so easy but it is doable.  Anything with the strength of Christ is possible.   As an extra point challenge we have to write down in our journal for 3 days what we ate and what type of emotion went along with those meals.  I tell you this was harder than I thought.  But it would be good to see my eating pattern and what I can do to make it better.

Thank you again for your prayers and thoughts.

With the love of Christ,
