Eyes on the Goal!

Jamie Eason's Livefit Trainer
I mentioned in my last post that I was following Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer plan for my workouts.  It's been almost 3 weeks, minus a couple of days and I'm definitely seeing results.  Today, however, is a forced rest day.  My body is telling me to hold off for a day or too.  I am SORE, people!

Yesterday's workout was difficult.  I wasn't very motivated - had some not-so-good news about a family member and I wasn't feeling the motivation or drive.  I struggled through most of it though.  Plus, the workout included triceps and I'll admit, mine are WEAK!

At the beginning of the year, instead of making a New Year's resolution, I determined that I would simply be intentional in everything I do.  For the most part, I think I've done that.  I get motivational articles from Intentional  Here's a great one that spoke to me this morning!  God speaks....

Eyes on the Goal

by Dr. Randy Carlson
Disruptions are the opponents of change—they can hold us back. Like defensive tackles in a football game, they keep the quarterback from scoring a touchdown.

I’ve picked up some valuable knowledge from football. Every time the ball is hiked, the quarterback has the option to either throw a long pass, hand-off or run. He’s always focused on trying to get the ball to the end zone.

Sometimes, the quarterback is sacked behind the line of scrimmage by the defensive tackles and has to make up even more yardage. Occasionally he even turns the ball over with an interception. Yet no matter how many disruptions he may face, he always regroups and starts over.

Change is like that—no matter what happens, you pick yourself up off the ground emotionally and regroup. How?
Ok...I'm re-motivated and my eyes are back on the goal!  (After a couple of rest days, of course.)
Here's to whole health!
