Getting My Training On!
Two weeks ago, I started training again. I haven’t been able to do any sort of training or exercise since I strained my ACL in a fierce game of dodgeball. Yes, I’m only slightly competitive. I rehabbed my knee for a few months and am now getting going again with some great fitness stuff. What is this “great fitness stuff” you ask. CrossFit.
My neighbor is working toward becoming a CrossFit trainer. So I didn’t hesitate to jump in and start working out with him. After week one, I had only worked out one time because I was so sore. This week I finished my 4th CrossFit workout. And all I have to say about CrossFit at this point; freaking awesome! I love it.
But my workout will only be as effective as much as I am dedicated to the workout.
No more Dr. Pepper.
No more late night ice cream runs.
No more eating out.
No more junk food or candy.
Dang it! Now I really want a Dr. Pepper.
Every time I workout, I’m drawn back to something the Apostle Paul said in the book of First Corinthians, chapter nine. It goes like this…
1 Corinthians 9:27 – I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should.
Now to make sure I’m also training spiritually, not just physically.
