True Confession Alert
Bret and I are home, but I’m just so wishing we were still on vacation. I can’t get back into the flow of things yet. I can honestly say this was the first time in 25 years that I truly felt disconnected from work. For the first time in several decades I went 12 days with:
• no email
• no meetings
• no interviews
• no networking
• no conference calls
• no decisions
• nothing to review
• no pressure
• no deadlines
• no schedule
• no plan
• no pressure
A whole lot of:
• sleeping in
• staying out late
• breakfast in bed
• getting lost and loving it
• leisurely workouts
• bike rides
• long walks
• French wine
• new food
• a deep connection between two people who very much love being together
I could tell you it’s so important to take a true vacation – but it’s not a decision to take a vacation that made this possible. What made it possible for us to enjoy this time off is 1000% our team! Without a team none of this is possible. Without a team we might have “all the things” but we wouldn’t have PEACE. And that my friend is the most important thing in the world. My gratitude to every single member of my team is so deep it defies explanation. My definition of success is PEACE – what is yours? Let me know in the comments!
Featured Podcasts Of The Week: 3-Part Series on How To Organize Your Brain
This 1st episode is all about organizing your brain! I’ll explore how to take the science behind how the brain works and use that to turbo charge your focus and efficiency. Did you know that since 1986 we now take in 5 times the amount of data a day! This is the equivalent of reading 7 newspapers cover to cover. It’s no wonder it’s so hard for us to remember the simplest task. The negative side to this is our brains aren’t equipped with what it takes to handle all of this extra data. From a neuroscience standpoint, multitasking is not doable. Our brains literally cannot multitask; they actually toggle back and forth from one task to another. It’s time to learn how to be more focused and efficient!
This 2nd episode is all about building a fortress around your focus. Focus really boils down to 2 things: minimizing distractions and maximizing your creative energy. Distractions cause your brain to decide which one to focus on. Even if you have a T.V. on in the background, your brain is processing what’s happening on that television whether you’re consciously listening to it or not. In this episode, I’ll share with you the necessary steps to put your brain in the best possible environment for focus.
Welcome to the final episode of this 3-part series on Focus. Now, for the majority of us, going online to get things done is imperative. Whether it’s business or personal. Unfortunately, though, this can set you up for disaster because of the constant flashing lights, advertising, and retargeting that’s occurring! So, how can you NOT get distracted from doing what you set out to do? The answer lies in 2 key things! Once you learn and apply them, everyday distractions will have no power over you. Let’s get more productive than ever!
While on vacation this past week, I posted a few Stories of my support for the LGBTQ community. Note the rainbow heels…
One of the coolest things about our European travel was to see that communities across the world were celebrating gay pride (a movement many credit to New York in the late 60’s).
My support (on Stories) prompted a few people to express that they were “horrified and disappointed” that I would call myself a Christian and also openly support the LGBTQ community. Why is it the most critical and judgmental commentary is often from fellow Christians? That doesn’t drive people to the word of God. That approach isn’t love.
And then I addressed the issue on my feed (posting the pic above).
So yeah, I lost a few thousand followers. And, guess what?
I’m not mad about it!
Look, I operate from a place of authenticity…
Be you. Be honest. And the right people will stick around.
In case you’re wondering, I didn’t (and won’t) respond to any angry DMs. But I will pray for these peeps in my rainbow heels and hoochie mama yellow dress.
Have a peaceful, fun, and MEANINGFUL Independence Day Holiday! Be grateful for your freedoms! We are blessed.

Good for you, Chalene! Congrats on the fan-detox program! 😉
As Christians, we are to love everyone and judge no one.
But…to “celebrate” what the Bible clearly calls a sin, is not something I personally do.
You are allowed to encourage what you want and those who don’t agree can unfollow you ~ it’s a free country. And that is why I chose to unfollow you. I was saddened that you decided to celebrate sin. All sin is equal in Gods eyes and Homosexuality is a sin. I have no trouble loving those who choose that lifestyle, we ALL sin. None of us are perfect. But I will NOT celebrate it as you chose to do…
Well written. Same here.
Exactly. You do not have to celebrate gay pride to love them. Our world has a perverse definition of love.
I have gay friends who I LOVE but I don’t celebrate gay pride. We’ll pray for you too Chalene. Christians are called to act, think, do different. We are not of this world.
I’ve spent thousands with you and that ends now.
Did you unfriend your gay friends the same way you unfollowed her for celebrating gay pride.
Not only a sin but stated in the word of God as an abomination. We must be careful in our so called ““freedom”.
I don’t work for the HR department of heaven but I do know what the “manual” says.
“Sin” is missing the mark but an abomination according to definition is defined as repulsive and sickening to God.
He mentions 7 other abominations in Proverbs So homosexuality isn’t the only abomination mentioned in the Bible but it’s on the list.
Either we believe the Bible or we don’t. It’s not a buffet and we can’t cherry pick. If you don’t that’s totally ok. Thankfully HE gives us freedom of choice.
We live in a fallen world and we do have an enemy. He’s slick and we’re making the fight easier because we just accept anything without question and without fighting what we know is wrong.
Going against nature is wrong. Adultery is wrong. Sowing discord is wrong. Causing others to stumble (especially the young and innocent) is wrong.
I’m not perfect but I’m smart enough not to condone what God clearly doesn’t. My goal is to never hear, “ “Depart from me, I never knew you.”
I don’t think the Bible is necessarily all that “clear” about this. There is a wonderful book, Torn by Justin Lee, which tackles homosexuality in the Bible, and lets you draw your own conclusions. While my mother-in-law and I still disagree on this topic in particular, we both read the book (on her suggestion) and came away with a deeper understanding of the issue and each other. Your comment is firm but still respectful, so I thought you might be open to reading further in this issue (if you haven’t already.) ❤️
Couldn’t agree more-on ALL COUNTS!! Keep doing you Chalene!!
Spot on! If you really truly love someone you do not celebrate their sin! You help they recognize it and turn away from it. You can love someone, as Jesus did, but also as he did you should say “go and sin no more!” I have many gay friends and we can agree to disagree and they know I still love them but I won’t encourage or support anything to do with them remaining in that life style. It’s even sadder that she doesn’t care what her followers feel. She’s being just as arrogant in her stance as the “gay pride” people. We need to recognize that celebrate sin is NOT truly supporting the person you claim to love!! I love Chalene but I can’t support her encouraging others to stay in sin.
The bible is not at all “clear” on this. It’s pretty darn unclear actually. It’s unclear on a lot of things.
Except for love, its not unclear on that. Love others.
I do not believe homosexuality is a sin if you are reading the bible and doing proper exegesis.
@Wendy, I completely agree. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
You are judging God for making one of HIS creations. Good luck with that.
I agree. My gay friends did not CHOOSE to be gay, though people CHOOSE to steal, or cheat on their loved ones, or many other things. God made them, just as God made heterosexual people.
It’s important to show support for people who have suffered unkindness, violence, and countless other indignities.
You have my support, Chalene!
@wendy you do not understand the gay lifestyle. I chose to dive deeper into this and found that they do struggle with temptation at a higher level and choose give in to having sex with whomever excites them at the moment. Sex is an addiction and a huge focus of their identity which should not be to anyone whether heterosexual or homosexual. That is the sin. To celebrate the uncontrollable urge to over indulge for self satisfaction is wrong in any pursuit. This is why we plead with them to stop. Nothing good can come from this. Love is not sex. So to equate God’s love to the love that gay people celebrate is incorrect. The Bible and God are very clear. God does not want us to hurt ourselves and others with our uncontrolled desires.
The problem here is that people are now accepting how they have sex and who they do it with as their identity. And then celebrating that sex. The Pride parade celebrate sex. Have you seen a Pride parade?? Have you seen what they wear and don’t wear?? How is this a definition of love? I really wish people who are not in this lifestyle nor study the Bible to please refrain from commenting. You are just parroting what you hear with no real skin in the discussion. You are giving advise when you have no idea of either subject.
Charlene has ever right to support what she feels good about. That is her freedom. People can love who they love that is their freedom. But God is very clear, sin can not stand before God. Make your choice and allow others to make theirs. We all find out soon enough who was right and who was wrong. God speed.
Yay that’s it right there!
You know I don’t understand about you “unfollow people”? Why do you need to announce it? Why can’t you just go quietly? She’s already expressed how she feels and dissertation isn’t going to change her mind. Those of us who support LGBTQ aren’t really interested in your judgements. You have the right to feel as you do but those of us who live and let live with love, we continue to do so with no judgement.
1 Timothy 2:9
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire.
Have you worn braids in your hair, gold or pearls or costly attire, ever?
“When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has broken faith with her. If he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her as with a daughter. If he takes another wife to himself, he shall not diminish her food, her clothing, or her marital rights. And if he does not do these three things for her, she shall go out for nothing, without payment of money.
What do you think about selling kids into slavery?
A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
And, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;”
Many Blessings to you.
I went away quietly.
@Tina how do you paste all this quotes from the Bible and forget the full counsel of God. Many, many stories of prophets, friends, other people in the fellowship and even Jesus coming before someone who has sinned to plead with them to turn away and sin no more. The things you quote are directed towards the Pharisees who thought them better because they knew quotes but had no understanding relationship of God. God loves us but can not accept sin. We are called to love but not love sin. We are instructed that if our brother or sister sins to go to them and speak with them. The unfollowing comments are to exclaim we can not stand with Charlene and they are pleas to her to not bite into the lie. She can love them. But how she is doing it is hurting them and herself. That is all. I am disappointed because Chalene’s faith was a deciding factor for my commitment to her. But lately is has been hard watching her change. It is hard to resist the temptations of success and the challenges it bring to a believer. I wish her the best but I can’t support someone who supports any sin. From someone who is trying really hard to honor God and not sin. Much love.
Fact: Approximately 4.5 – 10% of the human population is LGBTQ
Fact: Approximately one in 5 – 10 babies born are LGBTQ
Fact: Being gay is not a choice, it’s physiology the same way all genetic traits are physiological.
Love is love when it’s consensual.
Why does anybody mind the private acts of kind, loving, productive members of society?
Love the heels but how do you walk in them?
At the heart of the claim that the Bible is clear “that homosexuality is forbidden by God” is poor biblical scholarship and a cultural bias read into the Bible. The Bible says nothing about “homosexuality” as an innate dimension of personality. Sexual orientation was not understood in biblical times.
There are references in the Bible to same-gender sexual behavior, and all of them are undeniably negative. But what is condemned in these passages is the violence, idolatry and exploitation related to the behavior, not the same-gender nature of the behavior.
There are references in the Bible to different-gender sexual behavior that are just as condemning for the same reasons. But no one claims that the condemnation is because the behavior was between a man and a woman.
There was no word in Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek for “homosexual” or “homosexuality.” These words were invented near the end of the 19th century when psychoanalysts began to discover and understand sexuality as an essential part of the human personality in all of its diversity. Consequently, it cannot be claimed that the Bible says anything at all about it. The writers of the Bible had neither the understanding of it nor the language for it.
There is only one reference to sexual behavior between women, and that is in Romans 1:26. The context of this reference has to do with Gentiles rejecting the true God to pursue false gods; i.e., idolatry. And, the sexual behavior described is orgiastic, not that of a loving, mutual, caring, committed relationship. What is condemned is the worship of false gods.
Sexuality is a wonderful gift from God. It is more than genital behavior. It’s the way we embody and express ourselves in the world. But we cannot love another person intimately without embodying that love, without using our bodies to love. And that does involve genital behavior. Sexual love is for the purpose of giving and receiving pleasure with our most intimate partner. It is a means of deepening and strengthening the intimate union that exists. This can only be healthy and good if our behavior is consistent with who we are and with whom we love, and when we are true to our own sexuality and orientation.
In regard to marriage, it’s important to remember that the Bible was written in a patriarchal culture that assumed men were in control and women were subject to them. Marriage was not an equal partnership, but a matter of a man owning a woman or women as property. Women provided men companionship, children and labor. Certainly, love between the man and woman or women could develop, but love was not the basis of marriage. Consequently, the biblical concept of marriage is not appropriate today. We no longer accept the inferiority of women and superiority of men. We no longer accept marriage to be a property transaction. The concept of marriage has evolved throughout history. Today, we understand it to be a voluntary spiritual relationship based on love, respect, mutuality and commitment. What really matters is the quality of the relationship, not the gender of the persons involved. And marriage is created not by religious ceremony or civil government. It is created by the persons involved who make their commitments to one another. Whether or not there is a religious ceremony to celebrate the marriage or marriage license to legalize it, the marriage two people make together in private is real and valid and should be honored as such. I hasten to add that marriage should never be understood as a requirement for two people in relationship. Intimate relationships must not always create a marriage commitment. Marriage is a lifelong commitment that not everyone is willing to make or should make. Being single in an intimate relationship is an honorable choice.
How do I view God’s position on “homosexuality?” I believe lesbian, gay and bisexual people to be a part of God’s wondrous creation, created to be just who they are, and completely loved and treasured by God. I believe God does not intend for any one to be alone but to live in companionship. And I believe God expects healthy loving relationships to include sexual love. The Bible doesn’t say this, of course. But neither does it deny it. I believe this to be true not only because of the Bible’s emphasis on the goodness of God’s creation and the supreme value of love, but because of the greater understanding of human nature that we have available to us today.
I do not believe that God intends us to live in the small world of ancient biblical culture, but rather in God’s larger evolving world informed by science, reason and experience.

Agree Wendy! Loving and celebrating are two different things. Love has the responsibility to care for the choices and consequences of another while celebrating something that God’s Word says hurts an individual is most unloving. Do I celebrate when my child or friend hurts themselves? No. I also don’t stop loving them.
I applaud Chalene for being honest in her beliefs. But now that I know them, I have to be honest and not support what hurts so many. We all search for God’s love, which He gives so freely. Yet we dont want to receive His guidance on how He created us. He knows what hurts us and what doesn’t. My children don’t know that until I teach them. And if they ignore my wisdom, they experience things they didnt have to.
Your wisdom Chalene, I believe has been gifted by God. He will continue to use you as you walk with Him. I pray everyday that my eyes are open to anything I am deceived about, and my hope is that is your prayer as well.
God is faithful. He is just. He does not want his children hurt and walking in deception. We have His Word to provide the clarity along with the Holy Spirit. Walking in this way is not easy and definitely not understood by the world.
YES!!!! I love this. You go, Chalene. Wear that beautiful dress, amazing heels, and love all humans as Jesus intended. I’m going to go buy your planner to thank you for this.
100% agree!! You go girl. Show the love not the hate 😍
I truly appreciate and love all that you do. I have said this before but your my spirit sister. All I have to do is manifest and you speak it! Keep up doing you. I’m ever so grateful for it!
I loved your post. I don’t usually comment, but I was horrified at the statements made under your insta photo (which was amazing by the way). You keep being amazing and gracious, those who care about their fellow humans appreciate and love you. No apologies, as it should be.
LOVE THIS! Right on!
Amen Sister! Christians who behave like enforcers (like police) instead of advisors (like a lawyer) take on the responsibility of judging that belongs to God alone. We are here to help each other out as best we can, and have been commanded to LOVE EVERYONE.
Your post was amazing and a true show of what Jesus calls us to do. Love others. Period. Thanks for standing up and showing the world that God loves all his people and that sin isn’t for us to judge, dictate, or determine. We need to leave that alone and be good to our fellow humans. Besides, being gay isn’t a sin according to the Bible. Homosexual rape, prostitution, and adultery is though… along with a list of other things many people do. So there’s that too
As a fellow Christian, I get where you’re coming from. God calls us to love and pray for those that don’t follow Him, not to JUDGE them. Didn’t Jesus dine with prostitutes, tax collectors, and (pause for dramatic gasp here) SAMARITANS?! You can’t love someone and reveal God’s love to them if you’ve removed yourself from their orbit. Do you need to tell someone you approve wholeheartedly of their lifestyle choices? NO. Are you called to love them no matter what? ABSOLUTELY. Because God does. He made them. They are His children. And I certainly don’t want to meet my heavenly father one day and have to explain to Him why I made some of His children feel small because I took it upon myself to judge them rather than love them. That’s a lecture I’d like to skip from the almighty – goodness knows He has plenty of others to give me.
Well done, Chalene!
Love this! Well said. And well said Chalene
Well said Jennifer! I believe we are all here to love one another regardless of their regions beliefs and other what nots. It is not my job to judge and condemn someone. It is my job for me to live my life in true integrity and with unconditional love, being the best version of myself that I can possibly be.
To Chalene, you are an amazing human being! You embrace every person with open arms regardless of who they, where they have been, and where they are going. You constantly inspire others to be who they are meant to be. I admire you and have always admired you ever since Turbo Jam (which by the way I still use and love)!
Thank you for staying authentic Chalene. The people who are so “outraged” need to take a good hard look in the mirror. As Christians, we are called to love all humans. It’s not our place to judge. And if you don’t like someone’s post, get off their page…
No need to be hateful and negative.
I’m sometimes confused how we Christians seem to think that denigrating other people’s choice of who they love is “Christian.” I feel Jesus would want me to celebrate LOVE, and to me this is what pride is about. I am filled with joy when I see Christians in the public eye willing to embody the true spirit of Christ-love. ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for being you! Love wins!
Stay fabulous! The word for pedophilia was changed to homosexuality in 1946 in English translations of Leviticus. The Bible actually does NOT condemn homosexuality. Or didn’t until relatively modern homophobes decided it did. If you’re curious about my sources, check my FB page. I published an article that delved into this quite extensively, and that post is set to public.
I couldn’t find your FB but would love to read what you posted. Can you post your link to your page?
Man, if you lost followers for your support of the LGBTQI2 community, then they don’t deserve to follow you. Thank you for your positive messages. You rock! Hugs and kisses.
In 1 Corinthians 5:12 Paul says, “What have I to do with judging outsiders?” He is talking about how we can’t possibly judge unbelievers by the same standards of the Church, because they don’t know Christ yet and probably have hardened hearts. We as believers hold each other to a different standard because we understand we have been saved and are part of God’s family. Liken it for example to a child who is in the foster system and has never been raised correctly, is traumatized, maybe has been abused. You want to adopt them but if you judge them based on how your other children behave, of course they are going to fail miserably. If you try to discipline them without loving them first, they are going to turn away from you. First you have to let them know they are loved! They are getting a family! Then once they are starting to get comfortable in that and realizing that they can let all that baggage go, the better behavior starts to happen, slowly, over time. The same with unbelievers who are slaves to their sin. You start by TELLING them the good news of the Gospel! You don’t come up and focus on how you are so disappointed in their sin. You tell them they are part of the family and God loves them and wants them the way they are! THEN as they become sure in His love, through the Church showing them that love, they will start to experience transformation through the Holy Spirit and will heal from the hurts and sin. It’s a PROCESS that takes a lifetime, as every Christian SHOULD understand, since we are ALL a work in progress…our sin and hurt is just different.
I don’t see why any Christian should unfollow a fellow believer.
I was just going to let this whole thing go…until I received this in my inbox.
I am a Christian and have an openly gay family member that I love dearly. But I do not support homosexuality nor can I celebrate something that I am convicted about.
Many of us “lifers” have supported you, Chalene, through Turbofire, CLX, Piyo, we’ve been Beta Testers, purchased your books, bought your PUSH journals and even stood in long lines to have our photo taken with you at Summit. We have been your lifers and you are slapping us in the face with your arrogance in our inbox. I’m sorry you feel the need to flaunt your “authenticity” to your true blue followers.
You go Chalene! Be unapologetically you, you’re the one you there is.
Love and support go hand-in-hand, and I for one feel love and support you Chalene.
Chalene, you are a beautiful lady. Like your yellow dress and heels I enjoy listening to your podcasts.
I’m a little surprised about this post. It seems to amplify the already negative stance people have about Christianity and our loving Father and bring shame and judgement to your “fellow Christians”. There are many references to homosexuality in the Bible. We are not God and cannot change what He says, whether we like it or not. He is God and we are not. He knows all things and if He gave us this book to guide us, I know it’s out of His perfect love for all people. We aren’t to judge others but we aren’t to support choices that are contrary to God’s Word either… even in the name of love. Would it be okay if a wife cheated on her husband and left her young children because she “loves” someone else now? Choices have consequences. I want everyone to enjoy eternity in Heaven. We need to speak God’s truth in perfect love. HE LOVES YOU! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU!
Being authentic is staying true to you and not shifting with what “culture” defines as what is right and wrong. An authentic person isn’t afraid to stand up against what most of the world says is taboo. People consistently get it wrong. We all get it wrong sometimes. The only one we can trust to always get it right is God.
Thank you for your post Chalene, and I’m so sorry you’ve had so much hate and judgement over it from those who like to cherrypick the bits of the Bible that justify their hate, and conveniently ignore the rest. God is love, and love is love. This hate and judgement is costing young people their lives, and I’m sure it means a lot to them for you to speak out in support of them ❤️
Haven’t heard any hate from anyone. Disappointment maybe, but definitely not hate. If you read the messages again you’ll see love mentioned several times.
Your social media. Your message. Your decisions.
Haters ARE going to hate. Let them go off and be angry some more, Charlene you’ve got Waaaaay better things to do. Like keeping an amazing entrepreneur, fitness trainer, author, nutrition guru, mother, wife, beauty consultant (your videos are always so sweet), and more!
My first thought when I saw this photo originally? “Ooohhhh I want to see her dance in those shoes!!” I never even caught the rainbow meaning. Know why? Because people are people regardless of who they love.
Except mean people. Mean people always suck, regardless who they love.
Keep being authentically YOU, Chalene and we all will keep loving you for it.
Argh!! Typo in line 4 errrrrk!! So embarrassed. Excuse me for that
Well I was a lifer before but I’m a devotee now! Well said Chalene – my daughter is gay and the sweetest kindest person you could ever meet. To think some people ‘tolerate’ her (gosh thank you…..) but actually think she is an abomination shocks and saddens me, but to be honest, we don’t want people like you in our lives anyhow, your nasty opinions are not important to us.
So thank you Chalene for ‘outing’ the petty and small minded amongst us – to all those unfollowing, be sure to shut the door on your way out.
OH Charlene now I’m picturing you praying in your rainbow heels and hoochie mama yellow dress. BRAVA!!
The word authentic is totally YOU and thanks for staying true to your big heart and your beautiful spirit, the world needs more of you xx
Oh WOW Chalene, thanks for opening my eyes up to a whole bunch of ‘crazy’ with the comments! For people who say they don’t want to judge many are doing that and a whole bunch more…. hmmmm Christians??? Scary bunch!!
I understand why you lost followers. Stick to fitness.
Chalene – I thought what you did showed support and caring…this debate has been going LOOONNNGGGG before you put on your adorable heels ;0) I’m a Catholic – went to Catholic School – and I follow Pope Francis on Twitter – he has stated the Catholic Church needs to become more progressive as our world has changed…so you do you Girlfriend! I’m STILL a fan of yours and I just signed up for your emails :0) I have gay family and I love them dearly…they held my hand through my divorce…so thank you for showing that you handle things from a place of grace and class!!!
Haters gonna hate…shake it off, Chalene, shake it off…
So proud of you Chalene- I Christian and a mother, Anti gay verses are few in the bible and used for hateful reasons. ….who is stoned for taking the lords name in vain, as is in the Bible, who forgives all debts in the time frame as stipulated in the Bible? Jesus taught love and acceptance, not judgement. Thank you for showing what true Christianity is.
