Holiday Body Challenge: Day 3: Craving, pumpkin spice and being nice

 

 Just because a woman finally fits into her skinny jeans doesn’t mean she’s won her battle with food. Too often, women overlook the spiritual component to their physical struggle with healthy eating. Made to Crave audiobook taps into the desires God gave you to consume food without letting food consume you! – Lysa Terkeurst

 

So how do you stay fit during the holidays, maintain your already busy schedule and fight the comfort food cravings?

This holiday season, let’s make a commitment; regardless of the fact that the weather has cooled off and daylight has gotten shorter; we will commit to stay fit, stay focused on our goals and when life feels crazy, let’s just turn up some heat and live with fire!!

Cravings:

Those sneaky things that seem to never go away. Lysa Terkeurst’s book Made to Crave really helped me get a grasp on why we crave, why you can’t just ignore them and why they’re actually suppose to be there. Yes. We were made to crave.
