Jesus – My Personal Trainer!

A few days ago, on a quick glance, I caught JJ Heller’s Facebook post about doing some 10 minute workout.  For those of you who don’t know JJ’s music, and ministry – google that!  [ my son and I were blessed with seeing her this summer]  Recently, she had her 2nd child, so she is in the “attempting to exercise with two little ones to care for” phase.  I was encouraged that with her schedule she was making time to make exercise a priority!  GOOD for her!

She had posted a little blurb about the 10 minute workouts she was doing from a ministry – called “Revelation Wellness/Fitness”.  The lady had some great short (10 minute) heart pumping workouts. I thought these might be good to share for those of you who travel, or have an iPad – or just to look for some different encouragement to mix things up.  I like to add some of these throughout my day – when possible.  OR, like last night… when I’m just cold and want to get my blood pumping – THIS will do it!

I appreciated the encouragement of her saying like, “dig deep, and do it for God… the calling is from Him to be healthy…”  (THAT I don’t hear on Bob or Jillian…)  Her tank top was also super cute – as it said, “Jesus is my Personal Trainer”.  I just loved that.  AMEN.  What more reason do we need?

That’s the only way I can explain this calling of mine.  When it’s 11pm and most people are thinking, “Yeah… I’m not working out today – scratch that!”  I think… “Wow, I can’t say no to God now – I’ve made time for everything else… what a shame I waited so long – I can do SOMETHING, even if it’s not a full workout!”  So I throw on my clothes and away I go!  I always feel SO much better after I do that… knowing I moved, vs. NOT moving.  The more days we move – vs. not – the more days we’re encouraged to move another day.

Personally I do like a day off now and then – no “set” day – but just a day that I know it’s ok if I don’t workout one day…  What is that longest streak you’ve gone working out EACH day in a row?  If you don’t know – maybe start NOW?

“You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!”

-Psalm 68:35
