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!”
