Happy Thursday Sisters! Over the next few weeks I will be sharing REAL stories of REAL women who have taken big steps in their faith and fitness journeys. Today I am sharing Megan from Healthy Homemaking's story. From the moment I jumped on the phone with Megan I have felt an instant connection. Her heart for Jesus is so pure, and her joy is seriously CONTAGIOUS. I’m honored to serve alongside her on Team Equip.
Here's Megan's story:
"This is the "craziest" before and after picture I'll ever share because I value modesty, and the point is healthy and strong, not a six-pack. ;) The left was my last shift at work at 9 months pregnant and the right was 3 months after delivery.
After having our son, Micah, my husband and I would walk for 4-5 miles almost everyday. Then, when I was officially cleared to return to fitness, I met Caroline of Fit for His Glory on Instagram and joined an online challenge group she was hosting. As a busy wife and new mama, it was something that I could easily fit into my schedule. I purchased the 21 day fix program, ate mostly clean, and drank vegan chocolate Shakeology for breakfast almost everyday. There wasn't a magic pill, wrap, or crazy fat burner. It was focusing on the basics of good nutrition, the right portions and exercise and it worked. The best part of the group was the encouragement from Caroline and the other girls who were also working towards their own health goals. We shared struggles, kept each other accountable and most importantly, encouraged each other in Scripture each day to center our wellness on the Lord.
Shortly thereafter, I joined Caroline's team in leading these same groups for girls in my life, and it has been such a blessing! Health and fitness is a passion, and something I genuinely enjoy, but the best part has been seeing the Lord use it as a bridge to reconnect me with old dear friends and new kindred spirits. What starts out as sharpening one another in fitness, goes so much deeper into sharpening one another spiritually. That's what sets apart Fit for His Glory challenge groups and Caroline's team Equip coaches.
Working out from home may not be for everyone and it is certainly not the only way to be healthy and fit! But if these groups sound like a good fit for you or you're interested in leading your own, definitely reach out. I'm so thankful I did!"
I am so so proud of Megan and the hard work, consistency and focus she has put into her family, faith and fitness. The Lord is using her in big ways and I am thankful to have a front row seat.
Huge THANK YOU to Megan for sharing her story! Be sure to give her a follow on instagram or facebook at Healthy Homemaking.
