Back to Aerobics
I worked outed this morning for twenty minutes, broke a sweat and it was easy to get through.
Also I worked out to some Gospel Music this evening for about almost an hour. I seem to get lost in the music and forget about time. When you open your heart fully and let God in and able to let The Lord take over your spirit it is a wonderful feeling. — feeling peaceful.
If you can move around, then make sure to move around at least for a steady fifteen or twenty minutes to exercise your heart.
I was having headaches and after working out for the second time, but I still felt in a good mood and that’s all that matters.
So may be only able to take a nice walk outside, if so set a goal to take that walk at the same time everyday if you can.
The people who work, then think of going to work and moving around at work as your workout everyday, just watch what food you eat.
It may not feel as if you can but you have to fight it a little and if only for five minutes at least you can say you did it. I know for a fact that it doesn’t always feel good but when I stop completely doing any kin of form of exercise I feel horrible. I really feel the difference.
WHEN YOU CAN GET UP AND MOVE, DO NOT OVER DO IT BUT JUST DO IT. YOU WILL BE PROUD OF YOURSELF LATER.
“Live God’s Way: Exercise
“Think about this: God wouldn’t have designed your body to need physical exercise and at the same time intend for exercise to be the most grueling, tedious thing you have to do. ”
“God knows we’re all shaped differently, so he provided a variety of physical activities we can take part in. There’s an exercise out there for every one of us. ”
“The best exercise is the one that you will actually do because you enjoy it. So what do you love? What sounds like fun? Ask God to show you what it is, and give it a try, even if it takes you out of your comfort zone. ”
Galatians 5:22 says, “But what happens when we live God’s way? …. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely” (MSG).
“Here’s a good place to start: Move toward joy. If you think of exercise as drudgery, as an “ought to” in your life, your motivation disappears. If you “direct your energies wisely” and do something you enjoy, something you “get to” do, you’ll find that motivation just flows. ”
