The amazing Lorna Jane just released a new book—INSPIRED! I decided to celebrate with Lorna Jane and Fit Approach by joining in on the #1MillionMinutes and #LJInspired Instagram Challenge!
The week started off with… “How do you dream BIG?” I love this prompt for Day 1. My Pastor, Chris Hodges, just started a new series called Dream Again. One of the things he said has stuck with me… “Dreams have a habit of coming true”. He also talked about the importance of writing our dreams (visions, ideas, etc.) down…perhaps in a journal. That’s something to think about.
I love this blog prompt mad lib we were given. Something as simple as a mad lib gave me the opportunity to write some things down.
My mad lib reads:
I believe that the key to a happy life is love. Love inspires me to be the compassionate person that I am today. I am lucky/[grateful] to have God and my family (including friends, Highlands family, and virtual friends) in my life because they inspire me to live life to my fullest and to chase my dreams.
My dream is to one day meet all of my fitness goals while doing what I love, inspire masses of people on their fitness/running/wellness journey and even if it takes a while, I know I’ll get there because I’m not afraid to dream BIG!
While I dream big, I hope to inspire others by: never giving up on my dreams, remember perfection is not a requirement and failure is not an option, and being a testament that anything is possible. Yes, dreams do come true!
“Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.” – Habakkuk 2:2
What’s my fave healthy swap? Me being the foodie that I am, I couldn’t pass up Day 2 of the #LJInspired Challenge!
Baked Parsnip Chips
I absolutely love Baked Parsnip Chips! When you bake them until they are crispy, you wouldn’t miss the “other” ones! You know which ones I’m talking about. I know I’m not the only one that has had a bag of Lay’s potato chips and had a hard time putting it down. Well…with Baked Parsnip Chips, you CAN eat more than just one without the guilt! They make the perfect healthy swap! You can get the recipe here.
