My Husband And I Are "Doing It!"

Yeah, it was like THAT lol!
My husband just told me something incredibly shocking today! He said: "I wanna do it with you." No, it's not what you think (c'mon, you really think I would share that on my blog lol?!). He was actually referring to the idea of doing a Team Beachbody workout program with me! Yeah, see........SHOCKING!! :)

It's not that Chris isn't a fan of exercise. It's just that we have both been low on the time and motivation to do much of anything aside from keeping up with our normal day-to-day routine of work and family obligations. However, we've realized that just like any other priority, you have to MAKE time for it! Our health and well-being IS a priority and it's essential that we work on being in a better state of health; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. These post-nuptial pounds gained MUST GO!

The Team Beachbody motto is: "Decide. Commit. Succeed." We are currently in the "Decide" phase where we're making a plan of action and choosing a program to commit to! Our program of choice: Piyo! I've been eager to try it ever since it was released but just haven't done it yet. I'm so excited that my husband wants to "do it" with me lol! I hope he knows what he's getting into with me as a coach because I'm going to hold him to his word! If it's anything I know and admire about my man, it's that he's just as committed and determined as I am when making a serious decision to do something! He's amazing!

As we prepare to embark on this new aspect of our journey together, a few verses come to mind:

You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? - Galatians 5:7


Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. - 1 Corinthians 9:24.  

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. - Hebrews 12:1. 

Anyone who knows me or has read my blogs for a while knows that I have been "racing" a long time. My health and weight have been a battle for many years. There have been many things that have "cut in on me" and kept me from continuing to "race in such a way as to get the prize." I could give you an entire list of whats and whys, but there really is no excuse. It all boils down to whether or not I made the right decisions or not. Not being consistent with my workouts, failing to eat the way I should, and not staying closely plugged in with my ultimate coach (God) will always ensure that I'm sitting on the sidelines instead of racing towards the finish line. It's unacceptable!

Everyone that is reading this right now is going to make up our "cloud of witnesses"! In the months to come, you will read updates on our progress as we persevere on this journey. We'll be working hard to throw off  all the hindrances and entanglements that keep us from reaching our goal! Prayer and accountability make it even more certain that we will get there because we'll be "doing it" together!

How about you? Are you happy with your health? Are you still running a good race and in a way to get the prize? Or, have you run into snares and potholes along the way? It's never too late to recommit! Leave a comment and share your roadblocks! We've all had them and become discouraged! You don't have to let it keep you down! I've started and restarted so many times I can't keep track; but I keep trying! :) Cheer us on and we'll cheer you on too!

Grace and peace to you, my friends! I hope that this post will inspire courage and a renewed desire to make every aspect of your health a fresh priority! We will keep you updated on what we're doing!
