The Fit For Fall Challenge with Tone It Up starts today! I love their challenges. The workouts are something this momma can do without going to the gym. I can do them in-between loads of laundry or during snack time. With a simple set of hand weight and maybe a kettle bell, you’re all set to go.
The best thing, you don’t have to buy the nutrition plan to see results. You can get everything you need to participate for free. Between their website, youtube channel and pintrest board you can get the workouts and helpful recipes.
One of the ways that I ensure some challenge success is by planning our my meals. Some of my favorite things this year are kale chips, chia fresca, fresh veggies with hummus or peanut butter, white chicken chili, spinach strawberry salad and occasionally some sliced pear with a little brie cheese. I try to keep it pretty simple. My tone it up pintrest board has some of my favorite fitness routines and recipes. Especially the blonde bombshell, with pineapple juice, lemon, honey and apple cider vinegar. It’s a glass of get up and go for me in the mornings.

Online Bible And Book Studies Fall of 2015
Sometimes making it to a moms groups or women’s Bible studies doesn’t always fit into my schedule and when that happens I try to find an online study to participate in. Since we are in the process of buying a house and all the craziness that ensues when you are living in a temporary location; I find that, right now in this moment, an online Bible study or book study suits me best. Here are my current picks for this fall.
– GoodMorningGirls – The Book Of Acts, One Chapter A Day (starts Sept. 7th)
Courtney Joseph over at womenlivingwell.org has done a wonderful job with each book of the Bible study that she has done. She usually posts daily scriptures and a video each week. There are free printable resources for each study using the S.O.A.K (Scripture, Observation, Application and Kneeling in Prayer) on her website or you can purchase the printed journal (pictured above) on Amazon. There is even a guys version. Whoot. Whoot.
– Proverbs 31 – Taming The To-Do List (Starts Sept. 8th)
Proverbs 31 Ministries has been ministering to women for years. It started with a newsletter and has grown into an amazing community for Women. They have an wonderful team of ladies that encourage, lift up and impart practical and spiritual wisdom. That is why I as so excited for this study of Glynnis Whitwer’s Taming The To-Do List. You should really check them out! (Lisa TerKeurst recently launched First5.org and they will be starting a study on Genesis on August 31st.)
– Sally Clarkson – Own Your Life (Starting Date TBD)
What can I say, these last few years God has used Sally Clarkson and her ministry to fill this wife and mommas need for spiritual training and encouragement, pursuing my purpose and fulfilling the needs of my family. Early this year I read her book Own Your Life and was encouraged and empowered. There is something about the way Sally writes, she speaks to the heart with a loving kindness and mothers us while teaching truth, imparting wisdom, creating a desire to know our Lord more. She has put together a study guide/planner to of along with this book study, you can find both the book and the study guide on Amazon. You do not want to miss this.
I’d love to know what studies you are doing this fall!
