Gym Journal

(This article is for Thursday.) I’ve been having an emotional couple of days. I don’t know where it came from, but a wave of grief has been trying to take me down and defeat me. I’m beginning to think it must mean I’m about to receive a big blessing, because it feels like the devil is trying to get me to give up – not just on the gym, but on everything. I’m strong in Christ, and I will get through it. However, I have definitely been on the brink of sobbing several times.

One of those times I was driving. As the tear started to fall from my eye I pulled up to stop at a stop light and this was the bumper sticker directly in front of me. I really felt like the Holy Spirit was trying to call my attention to it and give me the emotional support I needed. I will persist. I will thrive, not just survive.

At the gym, I managed to set a new record and ran a 12:38 mile! I was really happy with myself for pushing through when I wanted to stop.

The rest of my visit was spent recording my stats for Friday’s month end stat update/ first weigh in. I am really excited to share it with you! I ended by doing program 4 on the Viber Beat in the infrared bed which says “A mixed frequency cycle targets specific muscle groups in the legs, abs, arms, and glutes to help tone and tighten muscles. This program provides an energizing workout.” I could feel the vibration in my eyeballs, but it felt good. lol
