Don’t Go To the End of Your Rope

Unless we’ve come to know the Lord at a very early age (which is not the case for me, coach Mike), then you’re most likely to come to know Him in a time of desperation.  When we come to the end of ourselves.  When we’ve done everything in our power to fix a situation or overcome some struggle, and still fail.  That’s when we FINALLY reach outside ourselves to something greater than us, something much more powerful than anything we can do on our own.  That’s where God steps in.  If you’ve gotten to that point in your life, or even if you haven’t, those times will come.  We have the God of the universe that wants to have a relationship with us.  He cares for us.  He wants us to put our trust and faith in Him.  Though we come to know the Lord as our savior, that doesn’t mean that we won’t have troubles in this world.  We need to continue to go to Him, stay close to Him.  If you haven’t done that yet, don’t wait until it gets so bad that it’s your only choice.  Choose now!  Rest in Him, the One that loves you.  Everything else, every kind of trouble, pales in comparison to eternity and where we will spend it.

Key components of success in your fitness journey.

1.  Nutrition:  It’s been said, if you fail to plan, then you are planning to fail.  Pack your food ahead of time, so you don’t go with your gut at the time you are HANGRY!  That is when we make the worst decisions.
2.  Sleep:  Just do it.  There is a name for it, it’s called FOMO.  Fear Of Missing Out.  All you are missing out on is sleep, something your body needs to recover and get back at it tomorrow.
3.  Activity:  Pick ONE thing that you would like to improve on, and plan on doing that every day, even when you aren’t in the gym.  Pushups?  Do them every morning.  Pullups?  Rig something up at home to work on them.
