“Love Prepares,” is a statement I heard recently; and I immediately wrote it down in my notes (being a big time note-taker). I began to think of the ways that I could prepare something for others, out of love. And as I approach the subject of “preparing” to kick off the launch of The Master’s Fitness Plan (TMFP), and the makeover of this old blog made new, I can see that “Love Prepares” certainly has applied to my efforts with TMFP.
I see the struggle that so many face with fighting to get fit, and my heart hurts for anyone going through that battle, because even if it was for only 2 years, I experienced a taste of the pain and frustration as well. TMFP has been prepared for those who struggle, and my personal underlying motive in doing so, was love.
TMFP began as a thought while on the treadmill five and a half years ago. When I workout, I have mental clarity, and a more “completeness” to my overall being, which provides a great opportunity to pray. I felt like God said “Bring Me to the gym”, and that was the beginning of many, many notes to come. But The MASTER’S Fitness Plan, needed to be different.
We already HAVE fitness plans, great plans in fact, that provide meal plans and workout plans… those tools are wonderful and very needed!
But what I realized we are lacking, is the MENTAL training plan.
The Plan that teaches us how to THINK so that we can take on the fight.
The Plan that trains us in not only which foods to avoid, but also how to overcome temptations, so that we have the strength required to not eat the foods.
The Plan which explains that getting healthy IS A FIGHT, and that we need a strategy to fight right.
The Plan, which lays out that very strategy, helping a person who may be experiencing some form of defeat, and provides the steps needed to equip the individual for success.
Not only through TMFP, but also this website TraintheHeart.com, are my outlets to bring continuing inspiration. My goal is to bring you consistent posts centered around Persevering in Fitness and Faith, and I have a personal blogging plan to do just that for anyone looking for encouragement to persevere.
And so they have been born… from the love that’s burning in me as a desire to help others, as a result of what Christ has done for me, with years of preparation… The Master’s Fitness Plan and Train the Heart! I am thrilled to be able to share this with people. I pray that it brings forth breakthroughs and victories, equipping men and women alike to experience total health and live life to the fullest!
