No complaining…

So Robin shared a cool book with me this past week, and while it didn’t have anything to do with working out, it had everything to do with LIFE. Here’s the best part:
Never allow yourself to complain about anything – not even the weather.
Never picture yourself in any other circumstances or someplace else.
Never compare your lot with another’s.
Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise.
Never dwell on tomorrow – remember tomorrow is God’s, not ours.
–Ella, a missionary in Africa.

Unbelievable. I am working on this. Inspriration.

And speaking of not complaining, when I added a minute of optional burpees at the end of the workout this a.m., Karin voluntarily did them, and did NOT complain once. 🙂 Great job!

Finish strong!

5 day boot camp…the short version

ok, so some of you are new to this, and others have done this before.  Either way, the first couple days are the hardest food-wise.  The workouts will be probably shorter than you are used to; therefore, I ask that you give your ALL.  Give every ounce of your being to those 30 minutes.  In short, go hard.  Be intentional about giving everything you got in those 30 minutes, SO THAT you burn as many calories as you would if you went to a 60 minute long class/training session and paced yourself…but we won’t be pacing ourselves.  No sir, lay it down. 🙂 

Here’s the short version of our food plan – starting the moment you wake up Sunday – 

SAD GAS.  yes, I said that.  Here’s what it means:

Completely avoid these foods —

  • SOY
  • ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS
  • DAIRY
  • GLUTEN
  • ALCOHOL
  • SUGAR

you can do this. together we will spur ourselves on.  more to come.
