LIving Sacrafice (cont.)

Earlier in the week, I talked about Romans 12:1 Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.

It really sounds easy doesn't it. It isn't or everyone would be doing it every single day. We wouldn't have the pandemic health problems that are becoming more and more common. There are just too many temptations. Let me narrow it down to a couple of excuses. Either we don't have enough time to do anything or if we do, we are too tired.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Overcoming this isn't that difficult. Your living sacrifice or workout absolutely has to be a priority just like watching American Idol. Listen or read carefully: You will never have enough time to do everything you would like. Stop putting it off until tomorrow because you will not have time tomorrow either.

If you are reading this you have either already given your living sacrifice (workout) today or you should get off the couch right now and do some push ups and some deck squats. Quickly before the commercial is over. One way to make time for a workout is to do a set of push ups or deck squats during every commercial this week. Gotta start somewhere right?

Remember, a workout doesn't have to be nor should it be a whole 45 minute ordeal. You will get results with 10 - 20 min intense workouts. Take the example above with the push ups and deck squats. Start your timer, alternate exercises every minute for 10 minutes. I can assure you that if you do this everyday consistently you will see results relatively quickly. This type of workout will build strength, endurance and shed unwanted pounds. Give it a try.

Sunday Ride:
Ride 30mi. rode the little hills on Ft Story. Around and around in circles.
