Day One :3

My devotional today was about how we fall short of the glory of God.

"And changed the glory of the uncorriuptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things." - Romans 1:23

So we basically worship the image in the mirror, ourselves. I won't lie I have definitely been guilty of that. I've been so focused on image, it has definitely been on the forefront of my mind. But I'm giving it to God so that I can glorify Him.

Yes I still want to loose weight... but if I don't allow God to help me or be apart of it.. then I'm not really doing it for His glory, I'm doing it for that "image."

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11

He already knows! He knows where we are going.. We just need to put faith in Him and glorify Him in all that we do! :3

I've started this workout video, it's a Jillian Michaels video, it's a 20 minute workout video you're suppose to see changes in thirty days. It's actually pretty intense and I only did the beginner.. it's like non-stop going all the time. Once you get done with one exercise you go right on to the next one. So you're thinking, wait Mattie, didn't you just say all that above? I know... Haha! I've re-started this book called "Back On Track" which is a weight loss book focused on bringing God into your plans.


So I'm so stoked about Nakakon! I got my Applejack wig in yesterday! That was super exciting!

ANNNNNND! 10 more days and I'll be in Oklahoma! I can't wait to see everyone! I miss you all!

Things I need to work on: Drinking more water, thinking more positively, being happier, putting more faith in God, taking everything in prayer, reading my Bible more often.

Cosplay I have to finish: ALL OF STARFIRE, tailor Yuna, belt/beltbuckle for Applejack.

Yeah... Yeah, I can do it XP haha.

Love you all!

  1. Your past couple of blogs have been so uplifting! :') I miss you like crazy! It makes me motivated to get that bible study too, or something similar. Bringing God into weight loss and body image would make it all much more worth it... I just need to get back on track with Bible studies in general.

    Anywhoodle, I LOVE YOU :D I can't wait 'til you're baaaack! <3
