Gold Ring in a Pig’s Snout

Hello, friends.

How are your weeks going so far?  It is a winter wonderland here in Chicago.

Today’s workout was motivating:

I love doing ab workouts!  But first:

A verse from today’s Bible reading made me laugh aloud over my breakfast:

“A woman who is beautiful but lacks discretion… is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout.”
Proverbs 11:22

Holla!  Such a simple, almost silly statement, but so impactful nonetheless.  I know as a woman I can sometimes struggle with discerning whether or not an outfit honors God or not…  And I know I’ve seen too many attractive women eclipse their God-given beauty with lack of discernment in clothing, cosmetics, etc.

I also don’t think this verse only applies to physical appearances, but to discernment in speech, relationships and choices as well.  Beauty will only get you so far in this life; at the end of the day, lack of discernment will get you looking pig-snout-ish.

This morning was a sweat-it-out-at-home kind of workout.


I loved how the cardio exercises incorporated the abdominals, maximizing the workout as a whole.  For examples of some of the exercises, check out my exercise pictures page.


Question of the Day:
What’s your favorite ab exercise?

  1. Thanks for the motivation today Stef, I really needed it. Working out and being healthy can be extremely hard in a world that doesn’t always see it as a priority. My favorite ab exercise is bicycles :)
