Top 10 Safety Tips For Running Outdoors!!!

Hello SuperStarrs!!!  Today I’m sharing tips on how to stay safe while running outdoors.  I’ve been running outdoors now for over 2 years and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!  I LOVE the fresh air. I LOVE the sunshine.  I LOVE the scenery changing.  I LOVE being outside with the seasons changes.  I LOVE waving to people and seeing the neighborhood dogs. I LOVE seeing the flowers and trees blooming.  I LOVE early morning sunrise Summer runs.  I LOVE the falling leaves in the Fall. I LOVE crunching in fresh fallen snow.  However I know that with running outdoors can cause some fear in some people. Especially when just getting started.  That’s why I am sharing with y’all what I’ve experienced, so that you can shake off that fear.  When you have planned ahead & are aware then, you can lace up & getting going!!!

I’ve heard people talk about being fearful to go out for a walk, run or ride by themselves.  It saddens me when I hear of anyone being controlled or held back by fear.  I totally believe that we should use wisdom like I shared in the video and probably not go running in the woods alone.  However I do think sometimes people don’t even realized they are being held back by fear and worry.  It make me think of in Proverbs where it talks about

“The sluggard says, “There’s a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed!” 22:13

“The lazy person claims “There’s a lion on the road! Yes I’m sure there’s a lion out there!” 26:13

So many times people can waste time worrying about things that will never happen.  Sometimes people like to find their excuse and then they feel better about staying the same.  When people think of the worst case scenario and allow that to be their reason for not making a positive change then, they are living in fear.  They are believing the lies of fear, rather than believing what God says.  2 Timothy 1:7 God tells us that He hasn’t given us a Spirit of fear but He gives us Power, Love and Self-Discipline!!!  I choose to believe and live in Power, Love and Self-Discipline!!! SuperStarrs I  pray that you want it too.  I believe if you are still reading then you do want it too!!! It’s up to YOU to go get it!!!

SuperStarrs, do you walk, run or ride outdoors alone???

If so, do you have any tips that you can share with the class???

What fears have been holding you back from taken your workouts outdoors???

How are you gonna live in Power, Love and Self-Discipline???

CrAzY With A Purpose!!!

Hey SuperStarrs, have you ever felt SUPER EXCITED about something and so you start to share it with someone hoping they will be just as stoked as you.  Instead you end up disappointed because not only are they not excited, but they look at you like you are CrAzY!!!  They not only are not excited. They don’t care at all!!!  I have experienced this a few times.  I know how disappointing it can be and the possibility of their words trying to talk you out of your dream.  That is why I knew I needed to share with y’all that it’s all good if people think you are CrAzY.  In fact I LOVE it now!!! Let me explain more.

People with no passion will NEVER be able to get it.  To them they feel it’s obsessive.  They may even call you a fanatic or excessive about your exercising or commitment to eating healthy.  To someone who doesn’t care or has no interest, any amount seems too much or obsessive.  So they don’t see passion, they see obsessive.  Like I said I LOVE it now when people look at me like I’m CrAzY!!!  It reminds me that what I am doing and have already accomplished isn’t easy!!!  It’s been God, hard work & dedication, that has helped me run my 7 Half Marathon Races. Also, because I know that God has Super Cool things for me, when I listen & obey.  I know that I am CrAzY, but I’m CrAzY with a purpose!!!  I know this now, however when I first started on my In The Weighting Journey a few times I started to allow the dream killers words to make me question.  To start to question,

IF this could really happen???

WHY would God ever choose to help me???

WHAT would I have to give up???

WOULD it really be worth all the hard work it’d take to get there???

WHAT if I failed again???

The problem with all of the questions I had was each one was full of self doubt.  I quickly realized.  Was I gonna believe them or believe God???  I choose to fill my mind with life giving thoughts.  Thoughts of,

What would I look like when I got there???

How much more energy could I have after losing all this extra weight???

If God has helped other people achieve their dreams & goal, Why not me???

What it would feel like to receive my bling after running my 1st Half Marathon???

How would it feel to shop at those store again???

Who could I help encourage & pass hope to???

What a world of possibilities could I open up for myself, if I didn’t have all this extra weight???

How many different adventures could God take me on, if I’d just Trust & Believe Him???

I decided I wanted to Trust & Believe God.  Because He has promised me & you, that ALL things are possible with Him!!!  Jesus said, “What is impossible with man IS possible with God!!!” Luke 18:27  As I encountered different times of people saying things or simply looking at me like I’m CrAzY.  I quickly realized that if I allowed myself to meditate on their words, I could easily become discouraged, which could lead to me giving up.  I decided that it doesn’t matter what others think of me, I only care what God thinks of me!!!

I made a video called Choose Life, where I talked about choosing life when making food choices but, SuperStarrs we can choose life in our thoughts too.  We can choose to meditate on God’s Word, His Promises, and thoughts that give us peace, joy, & hope.

Remember SuperStarrs, that not everyone is gonna be stoked for you, but know that God always is!!!  He is cheering for you to do great!!! He is excited for all the good things He has for your future.  He declares, “For I know the plans I have for you.  They are plans for good, not harm, to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11  Know that I am also praying & cheering for you!!!  Surround yourself with as much love as you can!!!  Has there been a time in your past when God was there you for???  I’m talking like a healing, miracle, answered prayer or just a time you got a God wink.  You had a need, you ask God for help & you were taken care of.  Remember those times and use it to think about whenever you feel doubt or discouragement start to creep in.  Kill it then.  Say to yourself,

“God helped me before, He will do it again.”

“God’s helping me. I’m not doing this alone.”

“God has promised me a good future, so I’m working hard to get it!!!”

Kill those negative thoughts & doubts before they have a chance to kill your dream!!!  Replace them with God’s promises & dream about the AWESOME future God has for you!!!

SuperStarrs, have you ever had someone question your passion by calling you obsessive, fanatic or excessive???

How will you handle it the next time it happens???

What are you passionate about???

Are you putting Faith into Action???

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to find the negative in things of life??? SuperStarrs In order to have a life of Peace & Joy, You will have to work for it!!! You will have to purposely choose Peace & Joy everyday!!!  It doesn’t just happen, we have to choose daily to have Joy & Peace.  If you are really struggling getting your workouts done, change it up.  Try something new or play a sport that you love.  Take a Dance class. Sign up for Martial Arts class.  Think of something that you’ve always wanted to do or used to be able to do, that you want to be able to do again. Like a pull up, the splits or a handstand. Maybe it’s a Real pushup or sit-up.  Whatever it is, if it’s something that you really want, you can keep working at until you are able to do it.  Have fun while you are getting healthy!!!

For added Bonus here is a funny out take video for ya’ll!!!

Love Yourself, Give Yourself Credit & Get Rid of Guilt!!!

Hello SuperStarrs,

Today’s video I share a few thoughts with you that will help you to have faster progress on your journey.  There is no much negativity in this World, we don’t need to be allowing it in our minds.  We shouldn’t be speaking negative things about ourselves.  We spend more time with ourselves then we do with anyone else so it’s important that we love and like ourselves.  We can’t love others properly if we are not loving ourselves.


Matthew 22:36-40


Our thoughts and words do have Power!!!


Proverbs 23:7

Listen to what you are saying about yourself.  What is your heart speaking???


Luke 6:45

What do you need to do to heal it???  What Truth do you need to fill your heart with???

Focus on what you are doing instead of beating yourself up for what you didn’t get done or what you didn’t do.  This journey is about progress not perfection!!! No one is perfect so if that’s all you focus on, you will be disappointed.  Give yourself credit for what you are doing!!!  Celebrate everything do SuperStarrs!!!

Don’t feel guilty for eating delicious food.  Just Thank God for it and enjoy!!!

Comment below if anything I shared helped you.  I pray you will make healthy choices in your thoughts and actions while you are “In the Weighting”.
