To have better health because it's not just a physical thing in terms of losing weight.
I believe it's spiritual as well didn't he say if disturbed by transforming your mind when -- -- yeah I think we have to have a paradigm shift in how we think about -- health.
Because if you change your thinking your actions will follow.
And I also believe that you really have to focus in on what you really want you have to get to a point where you are sick and tired.
Of being sick and tired you have to want to change.
More than you wanna see the second essentially -- -- river when Oprah lost all that -- she says it's a lifestyle.
Change it and I don't know what you're talking about this is about a life -- it starts with changing your mind sat.
And then -- partner that with your -- Because I believe it's not show us the physical part of -- but it's mental and spiritual you have to believe -- in the heart.
You have to believe it in your -- it.
And I will say personally.
I believe that with god all things -- possible.
So when we generally you can start a new year and we all want to lose waiter had some sort of fitness goal but we make that our goal.
Why you're seeing in order to have success it can't just be about I'm gonna exercise a certain amount of times -- -- -- calories.
Right I think it has to be integrated mind body and spirit and a lot of us will start the new year saying OK I got to lose weight.
And we start but the problem comes to stick with it.
And I remember my pastor -- saying you cannot conquer.
What you are not committed to.
Moving forward to great so it's not the easiest thing to do to -- -- way to improve your health but I think when you combine faith.
When you combine fitness and healthy -- You are sowing good seats so that she -- have -- you return so you have this 28 day witnessed -- fitness kind of a program in Athens daily -- daily meal plans and recipes and some scriptures.
Yes so people can find that your new book right I think that it's important to have a blueprint.
You have to have a plan and work the plan so in that 28 days you have daily workouts that you can mix and match.
You have easy to prepare recipes -- we all -- -- has teach -- to.
Scriptures to help motivate you when success stories that would encourage you and also -- of the day because we need to be in her ties in data rate it.
But you say that part of this also asked him because you have to treasure your body yes as your temple.
Yes I think so often we don't realize that health this gift.
And we tend to maybe not extra trash out temple.
And we should treasure it I remember a young man named John middle age had health problems right.
He didn't the doctor the doctor gives -- you know you need to eat healthier you need to be more fit physically active.
And you one thing that he could not in grace was the work out part so the doctor just -- -- look.
-- even work out.
One hour every day.
You don't work out and you're not gonna be -- physically active mentally spiritually.
And even physically so I think.
The doctor was trying to say you need to work.
Out went out one hour every day or that our ports authority over you know what you're dead every hour every day I hate to say it like that put it we have to embrace how health let's look at it a good news yes optimistic way into the future this is a picture.
