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.

funniest thing...

So yesterday I was sitting in a crowded hotel lobby in Dallas, TX having my coffee and reading my Bible before I went to the hotel gym for a workout. I happened to be wearing my red and black Nike shorts and my black P90X tank top. I was reading 1 Corinthians, first chapter and was really into it...soaking up each word and really imagining Paul's thoughts and feelings as he wrote these words but for some crazy reason I glanced up from my Bible and looked at the large flat-screen TV on the wall in front of me. AND WHO DO YOU THINK I SAW??????????
Tony Horton himself--wearing the exact same shirt that I had on! HAHAHAHA! I let my eyes do a quick scan around the room to see if anyone in there watching had noticed my shirt. All eyes were on the TV. Ah...good. So I watched as TH showed the TV crew some exercises from P90X. He did plyo and clap push ups, reach high and under push ups and I REALLY REALLY wanted to get down on the floor and join him...but I refrained. :o)
After I finished my coffee and quiet time, I headed to the workout room where I ran for about 10 minutes, biked for about 10 minutes, did the stair climber and then worked through a few sets of this circuit
1) decline push ups 2) ab work 3) back flys 4) lawn mowers 5) bicep in and out curls 6) tricep skull crushers 7) chest presses
Ahhh....man did that feel GOOOD! By the time I went back to the room to shower, I was SOAKED. Who knew I could give myself such a great workout all alone with no guide, no video, no instructor, nothing. Just me and my muscles. :o)
