Health and Fitness!
God tells us in The Bible, that:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
Do you not know that your bodies re s of the Holy Spirit, who in you, whom you have received from God? You re not your own; you were bought t price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Therefore, we should only put good and wholesome things into our bodies. While I am nowhere close to following this advice, it is a goal I am striving for. That is the cool part about God - HE LOVES US! He knows that we sin and is willing to forgive us those sins.
Part of my efforts to work towards having a healthy body is doing Crossfit at a local fitness location. I do a rowing class two times a week and a WOD five times a week, taking Wednesday and Sunday's off to allow my body to recover. While I am not the fittest one in the group, the folks that are there encourage me to do my best and to give it my all. I hope to include comments about my training in future blog posts.
Currently, I have 3 goals that I am working on - 1) to do a pull up by the end of May 2015 (update - I can do more than 1 now!) 2) to be able to run a mile in 8 minutes or less by the end of September 2015 (still working on) and 3) to be able to bench press my current body weight (220lbs) by the end of December 2015 (currently able to do 145). I have some good goals, I believe, set and ones that I can accomplish. Part of setting goals when related to fitness, is to be reasonable and not to set such lofty goals that you end up getting frustrated and quitting.
My family also believes and sells a line of products called Shaklee! The links in the pic do not work, but go to http:\\www.shaklee.com and you will be able to obtain additional information. We are believers in this high-quality product.
If you are interested in purchasing, please let me know so we can get the credit.
We can count on one hand, the number of times they were sick and they are both now in high school and beyond. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I will respond.
