Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

My "drug" of choice...

pumpin' and jumpin'.

There is nothing like pumping some iron and doing some good old jumping to give you an all-natural high!
I've been in a complete FUNK for the past several days. Just moody and whiney and overall---just way more negative than my normal self. Today is the day I teach classes at the gym and it dawned on me while I was preparing for class, that DUH!!! I'm probably feeling this way because it's been an entire WEEK since I've worked out!
Sure enough...not long into my first class (weight-lifting) and I could feel the difference. My blood was pumping, my heartbeat was dancing and my mood was lifting by the moment! By the time I was done with the 2nd class (bootcamp), I felt like a whole new woman!
Call it crazy, call it impossible...whatever...but I felt like the whole world was against me before I walked into that gym and when I walked out...I felt like I could CONQUER the world!
Now why in tarnation wouldn't EVERYONE want that?
Not only is exercise a total mood lifter and energy booster, but plus it keeps you healthy on the inside and SUPER-PLUS---makes you look fabulous on the outside!
If you aren't in some sort of regular exercise routine, I really hope you'll give it a try and just see if I'm right about this. Test me. Tell me you don't feel better after putting in a good work out. I dare you!
