On Thursday I had a marathon of a day. I taught spin at 5:15am and then lifted lower body including doing core circuits. Showered & then spent time cleaning my apartment and turned around at 10am to teach another spin class. The ladies in this class never come to my early class and kept promising me one day they would come, but 6months later, still hadn't. They're always are commmenting on my energy and how they WILL ONE DAY take a class of mine... So today was my day to get at em ;) haha
We got started with our warm up and had a blast. I went as hard with them as I do my other classes and they were laughing and cursing me everytime I said ,"turn your dial" and "don't touch your dial... dig deep and grind out that gear!" haha I still laugh at their faces! When class was done one lady said, "we want the other lady back... you're a HardAss!" I smiled and said THANK YOU!
THEN, one lady said... "you have to give us props for being here because we are old and outta shape, you don't know what it's like!" EXCUSE ME!? lol "Actually, I've lost 90lbs!" Their mouths dropped and they decided it was Q&A time. Four ladies stood their and chatted about their problem areas and so forth. I alway like to listen to other peoples thoughts before I dig in and give my thoughts & all I could say is... "What are you eating?!" They looked at me like that didn't matter! UMM... THAT'S WHAT MATTERS MOST! I then got on my soap box and informed them that you could bust your butt for hours a day at the gym... but if your going to stick to the same diet, your not going to get the results you desire. Then I asked them this question...
"WHAT IF YOU WERE AS DEDICATED TO YOUR 4 HOUR WORKOUTS AS YOU WERE YOUR EATING?"
Their mouths dropped opened... VALID POINT!
|Currently 90lb down|
I share this because it's still a stuggle of mine. I have to chose healthy Eats. I have to make sure I don't eat out of emotion. I have to NOT eat out of habbit... I have to eat to feed my body. Just like your relationship to grow with Christ... you have to feed yourself. And if you feed your soul crap... life goes to crap. Which do you chose. Set your mind, be strong, and grow positively in mind-body-soul.
Challenge... Chose to encourage the person that annoys you the most and watch God in action!
