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.
