A Thank You To Cambria Joy

A Thank You To Cambria Joy

Let your light shine!

YouTube has blown up recently. It always used to be about just sharing videos on the Internet. As much as people always asked for likes and subscribers, it wasn’t about having a nice camera, fancy editing, or making money. With all of these new standards and the direction it is going, it is hard to find genuine, uplifting content on YouTube. Since 2012 or so (maybe earlier), I found a YouTuber that not only shared my core beliefs, but really cared about what people consumed when they watched her content. To this day she is the only YouTuber I really watch consistently because her content is so genuine.

Cambria Joy (BreeLovesBeauty) on YouTube is inspiring in many ways! She truly wants her viewers to get inspired in all the right ways. She inspires others to be fit because we are made in God’s image and it is important to honor the body we live in. She speaks about healthy mentality as well. I never come away from her videos feeling rubbed the wrong way or without feeling good. It is fantastic content in such a shallow world. Talk about building others up and building up the body of Christ! I have seen an array of comments either telling her how inspiring she is, how she helped somebody stop binging, how someone is now getting fit for the right reasons, or someone who loved her mini pep talk even though they don’t believe in Christ.

I can tell you at least 5 things I learned from her that have stuck with me:

1) We only have today so choose now to start making a change. Don’t wait for Monday.

2) Choose to eat the cake or whatever the heck you want and don’t regret it because it is a CHOICE.

3) Jesus died for you at 100 pounds or 200 pounds. (He doesn’t care).

4) Just be consistent with your workouts and that will lead you to where you need to be.

5) Give yourself grace.

There are so many more I could list, but the point is those are 5 major things that really helped me all throughout the last 5 years! I wanted to put this out there because I appreciate Cambria very much. In a world where we are so preoccupied with how we look, she is a breath of fresh air speaking the truth of Jesus Christ. Not only do we need more people like this in the world, we need more girls proclaiming these things, building others up. So I recommend you check out her videos if you want a refreshing, positive set of content in your life. We could all use a bit more light!

So thank you Cambria!

P.S. Her and her husband are actually relationship goals and the most uplifting people to watch.

10 Ways To Keep Your Workout Motivation According To A Personal Trainer

"ALEXA play 'Work Bitch' by Britney Spears."


Keeping your motivation for working out is one of the number one reasons why I think people fail to achieve their fitness goals.

Now I am no "fitness guru" by any means, and I have lost my motivation many times and worked back up.

No one is perfect when it comes to working out, and everyone can have different methods that are successful but from what I have seen, and talking to a few personal trainers, these are some of the best ways to keep your motivation and not lose track of your goals.

If you stick to these 10 ways, you will definitely have a better mindset when it comes to working out, and that will help you push yourself hard because you know that you are capable of much more than you think!

That is the last piece of advice I will leave you with, you are so much more capable of than you think. I recall so many times in the gym, I've thought I was gonna just collapse or crumble cause I was so tired, but time and time again I persevere and finish a set, and see that I can really push myself to the limits, and this is when I've seen the best results.

1. Talk about your goals.

You have to speak your goals into existence. Also speaking about them to others can help hold you accountable and you are working so hard for them, don't give up and let what you accomplished so far go to waste!

2. Get a consistent workout buddy.

This is something that I have found helps me out a lot, my roommate Jordan and I are always checking in on each other to make sure that we've worked out!

3. Want better for yourself, not to impress someone else.

This is also very important, if you have fitness goals solely to impress someone else, you will never be satisfied, or never feel like enough.

4. Want it more than you say.

You really have to want your fitness goals more than you are saying. If you have this goal that is driving you constantly in the back of your mind, your motivation will keep coming from within.

5. Have a scheduled workout plan.

If you have a workout plan that a professional or yourself has constructed, it gives you something to follow and not break. Having a plan for yourself will help keep yourself on track.

6. Take pictures every week!

Seems cheesy, but taking photos of yourself every week can hold you accountable but more importantly, you are able to see results, big or small, if you aren't seeing them in person, you'll be able to tell through the photos.

7. Know what your plan is before you go to the gym.

You should know what your plan is before you go to the gym, try not to just wing it. If you are winging it, who knows if you are really pushing yourself and constantly challenging yourself every gym session.

8. Try your best to maintain a healthy diet during the week.

This can be difficult of course, meal prepping is someting that can always helps! BUT if you don't have time to meal prep, then just go to the grocery store and buy a bunch of healthy snacks to eat throughout the day to keep your motabalism working. Get foods to fuel your body so all your hard workouts don't go to waste!

9. Stick to a plan, it'll be hard at first, but it only gets easier.

Once you get into the swing of things, get into a routine, you'll get used to it. And then you will truly enjoy it, feel great, and have more energy!

10. Surround yourself with others that also have the same goals as you.

As cliche as it is, you do pick up the traits of the people you surround yourself with. If you surround yourself with overachievers, hard workers, who have the same fitness goals as you, you'll all work hard together and encourage each other along the way!
