Happy December sweet friends!
Our theme the month of December is BELIEVE. We want you to believe in yourself and finish 2017 strong and feeling your best! Make everyday count!
These next few weeks, remember your goals and go after them! You are stronger than you think you are, we believe in you! In addition to your nutrition and exercise goal this month-- set one new goal this December: keep your focus on on Jesus. Amidst crazy holiday parties and overwhelming schedules you can stay focused! Breathe in the goodness of His love and grace for you. You can't control all of your circumstances but you can believe in the God who loves you unconditionally, and you can keep your focus on Him this season! #newgoal
