I had my ticket in my hand to fly to Vegas and test for the next level in Krav Maga. I was nervous because I hadn't trained like I wanted to due to severe leg cramps and lack of sleep.  I decided to get checked out by my Dr. and discovered that I have diabetes. My blood glucose levels were over 500. I was not well.

Devastated, I cancelled my trip and began the pathway to getting healthier. My diet didn't change all that much. I typically ate a pretty clean diet, now I HAVE to eat really clean. My exercise levels didn't change all that much. In fact, due to the medicines, I was unable to do some of the weight lifting for a while and striking labs left me incredibly sore. My emotional state was crashed. I had missed the deadlines for all my goals for the year. I had taken quite a hit!

What do you do when you get hit? Don't get hit again! Block and counterattack.  How do you do that when it is your own body fighting against you? Start restating that story. How's that? I'll tell you:

Freaking FIGHT BACK! I am worth fighting for. I am an overcomer. I am starting with the emotional and spiritual aspects of this journey because that is what defines how my physical body responds. When my mind is in the right place, my body follows. Somewhere deep in my psyche I had a core belief that I deserved to suffer, that I was not good enough to excel, and that I wasn't strong enough to achieve. I'm changing that narrative. It is taking a lot of work, but with the help of the Lord I am changing it.

I have found myself thanking God for this spiritual trial because I know that it is through these trials that I will become stronger. It is through this type of resistance training that we all discover the amazing strength that we possess inside of us.

You are more than welcome to join me on this path of discovery!  Join us for a few training sessions and see - you are a beast!

That's the spirit girl! Keep fighting back! Our physical aspect should not be the only aspect of our lives that is strong. Our emotional and mental health should be healthy too. It is a holistic thing.

We all have different problems that will attack us, but the hardest one to battle is ourselves. This is because of the thinking that we are doing the best we can to stay healthy, but it still hit us when we find out that there is something wrong. This does not mean that we should stop, but rather keep on motivating ourselves to do better. Do anything to continue on being the best in life always remember to never let something bring you down. Fight back every time life hits you.

My sister also had diabetes when she was in college. She stopped going to the university for at least a year because of it. It seems impossible for her to leave because her situation is kind of serious. My family is very religious and we believe in the miracle of God. Now, she is a very healthy and beautiful woman. God will take care of you no matter what your struggle is, if you just seek for Him.
