Your body can stand almost anything, it’s your mind you have to change ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our mentality really does determine our results, but we have complete control over the thoughts we allow ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fear, negativity, anger - these things will destroy you and everything you’re working for. So don’t allow your mind to stay there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Life is what YOU make it. You have total control. Embrace the hard. Use it for your advantage. It will set you apart ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Everything is a choice. Choose gratefulness, determination, and joy and watch your life transform ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else excited to do Murph this weekend? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @davidmullis

About last night....
@paigereilly coming in clutch again with her delicious creations - Prep staple: Protein ice cream 🍦🍨 & nothing blends better than @1stphorm Level-1! This is super simple to make and is so freaking delicious. Personally, I think TOPPINGS ARE NECESSARY 🤪 Lol it makes your ice cream 10000x better and it gives you so much room for creativity SO, here’s what I did to make this delicious night time treat last night 🍦👊🏻👇🏻 - 1 scoop of level-1 (flavor of choice) - 8 oz. of cashew milk - 6-8 ice cubes - 1 tsp of xanthan gum (this does wonders for consistency. It’s not necessary but I HIGHLY recommend it! - less is more with this ingredient! Adding too much can make it like pudding so definitely be careful when adding this!) - Blend for a whileeeee! - I always choose to top mine with some type of cereal, or sometimes I will crumble an Oreo or something on top 😉 & fat free whipped cream but this snack ALWAYS helps me & my sweet tooth late at night! Let me know if you try it out 🤗 - #snacktime #proteinicecream #1stphorm #iifym #getinmybelly
Ready to kill it with the crew tomorrow 🙌🏼
#FlashBackFriday to May 17, 2008 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Men, if you’re afraid of commitment, then you don’t understand the value good woman. The right one will encourage, support and make you better than you are on your own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Getting married at 22 probably sounds crazy to a lot of people. Like maybe I missed out on parties and freedom and bro trips and girls and doing whatever I wanted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I’ll tell you what I could have missed if I chose those things instead ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 11 years of adventures with my best friend ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Waking up next to her every day ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A partner to build a life I love with ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My person to share tears and laughter and heartache and celebrations ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The smartest person I know helping and pushing me through college and careers ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A compassionate heart encouraging me to deal gently with people ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A selfless soul who sacrifices so much to make my life better ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A godly wife constantly reminding me of what matters ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 11 years as a married man. I don’t know where I’d be without you @bbond86 but I know my life is better because of you. Love you!

I’ve been reading a lot of John Maxwell recently, and a section of one of his books made me think about people who have shaped my life and a similar character trait they all shared. . People tend to become what the most important people in their lives think they will become . How do we who influence others truly motivate and develop them? We do it through encouragement and belief in them. . Many of the most impactful people in my life had a knack for making people think they are better than they are. They forced you to have a good option of yourself. They let you know they believed in you. They make you get more out of yourself. Once we realize how good we really are, you'll never settle for anything less than your best. . I would like to encourage all of us to be more like this. Be the type of person who brings out the best in others and a great way to do it is through encouragement
Can’t let nurses week come to an end without giving a shoutout to all the hard working, brilliant, selfless nurses I’m lucky enough to know! And a special thanks to my very own ice cream loving nurse - saving lives since 2006 and saving me since the day I laid eyes on her! - Be sure to thank a nurse today👩🏻⚕️
There is one particular person in my life who has shown me what it means to be a friend by truly living the part. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I met Chad many years playing a game of pick up football not long after my dad passed away. I didn’t realize then how much that day would change my life forever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not long after Becky and I were married, I was invited to Florida to play on his traveling softball team. Everyone brought their wives and kids, and that group became our best friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But Chad was different. He let us into his family and showed us how to really love people by doing it. He made me want to be better, to be more like him, to be more like Jesus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be the friend who always has your back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one with an open invite into our home ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one who will always make you feel like you’re the most important person, no matter who you are ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one who will give you ANYTHING expecting nothing in return ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one who will show up in the middle of the night or drop everything to help you ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one who will take off work to move you and your wife across the country ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one who makes the effort to stay in touch long no matter how far away ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one who invites you on a family vacation. Because you ARE part of the family ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m forever changed because he has been this person for me over and over ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He is the kind of friend everyone would want, and makes me want to be that for other people. Really loving people is never convenient, it’s full of sacrificing yourself, it’s always giving and serving and helping. But it’s worth it. Because people matter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Find a way to be that person today.

@jenna_fail nailed this one😍 . Happy Easter everyone! ✨🐰 . It’s SPRING & I’ve been craving a variety of fruits, so this new Level-1 recipe is inspired by the season! 🍌✨🌸 . 🍌 @1stPhorm Level-1 Banana Bread! 🍌 . (This makes 2 servings) . • 2 mashed Bananas (1 cup) . • 2 Eggs . • 12 tbsp Level-1 (I used Vanilla Ice Cream) . • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda . • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon . • 4 tbsp Stevia . • 1/4 tsp Salt . • 1 tsp Vanilla extract . Mix them all together and separate the batter evenly into 2 ramekins (I got mine at TjMaxx!) Place them in a 350 degree pre heated oven for around 20 minutes!

I have several recipes coming up using this flavor so be prepared! 😍🙌🏼😋👏🏼
Every time I walk out the door 😆
Know the difference between being patient and wasting time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all know that success doesn’t happen overnight. In anything. Not in business or fitness or relationships or personal growth. So patience is critical. Without it, people tend to get frustrated, overwhelmed, and often give up. So we take one day at a time and focus on that win. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But ineffective use of those days can be equally as goal crushing. I think sometimes patience can be a crutch. An excuse not to push our hardest. If you aren’t seeing results, in whatever area you’re working on, could it be that you’re just getting by? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We tend to celebrate if today was better than last week without examining if we really did the best we could do in this moment. And doing a little bit better each day might lead to the same result, but certainly not as quickly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to win, REALLY win, you go all in every single day. Push further, work harder, sacrifice more. Decide what you want. Stay focused. And do as much as you can EVERY DAY to get there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Think about what goal you are working toward. Now figure out how you can get closer to reaching it today by doing more than you plan. Share with me so we can celebrate together when you get there 👇🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @davidmullis
We are allowing technology to kill our relationships because we tend to give our phones more attention than we do our partner. - Instagram, Facebook, TIcTok, Twitter, DM’s the list goes on. Seems it’s easier to jump on our phones during rough times and feed our egos from complete strangers than it is to work on what’s actually real. - Be faithful, be honest, and have some integrity
We’ve all heard it. “You never make yourself look good by trying to make someone else look bad.” And while we might say we believe it, I’ve met few people who actually live like they do ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I’m also a believer that you usually don’t make yourself look good by trying to make yourself look good. We don’t want to admit that we are arrogant and self-centered but we talk about ourselves constantly and fight for attention. So what’s the answer? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stop worrying about what will make you look good and just go love everyone! People will likely not remember what you say or do, but they will always remember how you make them feel. So make every person you encounter feel like the most important person in the world. Because they are ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authenticity is everything and if you’re not genuine, people will know. So just love them. Make eye contact. Ask questions and listen. Compliment. Encourage. Hug. Serve. Become others-centered and watch your own life transform ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Relationships are everything. So be the friend that everyone wants to have! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @davidmullis #everybodyalways #lovedoes #squad #iam1stphorm
