"Total Transformation Tuesday" Sneak Peek

I'm excited to announce a new twelve week blog adventure starting next Tuesday, May 11. "Total Transformation Tuesdays" will document my 90 day journey to transform body, mind, and spirit. Fair warning: it may turn into "What Was I Thinking Wednesday," or "Throw in the Towel Thursday."

Here's the gameplan:

For 90 days I commit to improving the the following areas of my life:
  • Body:
    • Exercise: P90x to be exact. I'm probably a little bit delusional to think that I am prepared for that level of fitness insanity, but I'm up for the challenge. I will do my best and forget the rest.
  • Mind: 
    • I will commit to read for at least thirty minutes a day. Unfortunately, this will not include reading the program titles on the TV guide channel.
  • Spirit:
    • I will be reading Beth Moore's study "90 Days to a Heart Like His" based on the life of David. 

Let's be honest here, I'm in a bit of a rut. I need something to motivate me to get off my tail and get something productive done. I figured there is no better motivation than a couple hundred people to hold me accountable. I'm telling you on the front-end that the odds are good that at some point I'm going to want to give up. Don't let me!

I invite you to follow me on my journey. I promise to be completely honest with you on how things are going. I'm not going to pretend I've got it all together if I don't. Here's my motto:
"Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing."
I'm not going to be perfect, I can tell you that much, but I do want to strive for excellence. I'm excited (and a little apprehensive), but I think my goals are realistic and my motives are good. So many times in the past I have been motivated to change because I wanted to please someone else. Since reading Beth Moore's latest book "So Long Insecurity," I've come to recognize the foolishness of the people-pleasing game. Other people's opinions do not give me self-worth - God does. This is for me.  I want to be a healthy, happy momma. I want to make the most of the gifts God has given.

I'm pumped up and ready to go! Tuesday, here we come!



  1. Best of luck! Esp. the workouts! Can't wait to read about it!

  2. Good Luck to you! I think this is a great idea of yours and a great plan. We all get in ruts and need a big change. I, myself am in a rut as well. I will keep up with your blog and see how you're doing. That insecurity book by beth moore...was it good? I am very insecure and care way too much about what others think. Maybe I should read that? The book you are going to read about the life of David sounds good too. Let me know how you like them! I love reading new and inspiring books!

  3. Hey Laina -

    "So Long Insecurity" was amazing. I was even insecure about buying the book in front of my husband. More than anything it helps give you the right perspective on yourself and your worth. I highly recommend it.

    I was so impressed by it that I'm actually thinking about giving away a copy on this blog out of my own pocket. I feel that strongly about it.

  4. It sounds like you are doing will with your goals! Keep it up, never give up!

  5. Sarah - thanks for the tip. I will read it for sure if you feel that strongly about it :)

  6. Sarah -

    Good luck to you and I look forward to following along and being inspired to better myself along the way.

  7. Thanks, your post just came at the right time in my life, I am actually working on some posts of my own hoping that if I blog about it that I will have more motivation.


Thanks for visiting! I love hearing from you!
