So yesterday was eventful….I have committed to Core de Force (I think…no, I have!) and it includes Dynamic Strength which isn’t bad until about round 3 when you realize you have to do another set of push ups and then you have to do push ups in EVERY ROUND! I wanted to turn it off after round 6 because then you just repeat the rounds 1-6 and they make it HARDER! uh….thanks….but I stuck it out and got it done. Purple hand and all…oh yeah my hand turned purple because I was helping Luke in the baby pig shed as he was castrating baby pigs and then we spray Blue Coat on them so they don’t get infection. I got it all over my hand. I know, I know you’re jealous of either castrating pigs or my purple hand. Never in my life did I think a Saturday would include castrating baby pigs and push ups with purple hands.
I LOVE IT! I’m thankful because even though it’s entirely different than what I ever imagined I get to experience it and that is awesome. God has to be laughing when he put me on a farm but He has a plan.
Luke is always so kind about me helping. I just give him the blank stare and he lets me watch until I’m comfortable. HE doesn’t just throw me in a pile of…well you know what…and tell me sink or swim.
So two things I learned yesterday
- push ups still suck but are effective. I’m sore today and thankful I can move my body and gain strength.
- Blue Coat doesn’t come off with just soap and water. It’s less purpley but still purple none the less. Squirmy little pigs.
I oversee nursery through fifth grade at my church in Knoxville. Luke and I minister to 1st – 5th graders on Sunday mornings and we love them! I’m thankful God isn’t a respecter of persons and His promises are for the young and the old. He’s a good God. We talked about the key to victory – our faith! 1 John 5:4 and how we get faith – by hearing God’s Word. I love these kids. I learn more from them and their families than they learn from me. I’m so blessed to do what I love – teach God’s Word.
I think I have to do MMA Shred again tonight. My torso is so sore, but I can do it. #helpmeJesus #beachbodyondemand #commit
