Day 5. My triceps are hurting from the dips from the other day. I can feel my rear end getting tighter. I can feel my abs getting tighter. My shoulders fell stronger and my mood has gone off the charts. Only 5 days in and I’m on fire. I’ve been emotionally eating for quite some time and finally found a way to set it free. Insanity is helping me release it in a positive way.
This week the world lost two wonderful men to cancer. Byron Montgomery and Mike Gibson. Both great people. Losing them as such a young age just doesn’t seem fair. Anything under the age of 90 seems young to me. Their passing made me focus on my health and fitness even more. My body is my temple. I must treat it well. This is the only body I have that keeps me on this earth.
2 Corinthians 4:16-15:8
16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits arebeing renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
This morning the alarm went off at 5:40 and I hit the snooze once. I wanted to lie in bed for a minute before hopping out. I took a minute to thank God for letting me live another day. Gave thanks that I can get out of bed and workout. Gave thanks that I was here to help others get healthy. Gave thanks that my husband is by my side to help me through it. But most of all gave thanks that I was honored to know two wonderful souls named Bryon and Mike. This morning my workout was for them. When I was tired I didn’t quit. When I wanted to give up I didn’t. They were with me today.
Day 6 tomorrow then a day of rest.
