Are You Motivated to Crunch Today?

If you knew me you'd think I'm allergic to exercise. I want so much to change.... but how? Went to the bike on my balcony and started...friction... gravity...resistance...UGH! I thought I was going to do this for an hour but I'm not sure I can stay with it. WHY AM I DOING THIS? FOR WHAT? AND FOR WHOM? Watch the video...

Ladies, my hour flew by. My heart and my mind were focused on the Lord and on doing what I needed to do because of the answers to those two questions. Focus, and remember ...Why? and for whom? and I guarantee your exercise will go easier and you will be cheerful in it!

Heyyyyyyyyyyy lady, great video. My kids heard you voice and came right away to see who was talking. Don´t worry, I am not showing this to the whole world only my kids :-) and they already know you so it´s great than they see I am not alone.
Have a great day friends. Keep it up. I love it.

Great job Karen! Your view there is beautiful and the area is so clean. I can't say the same for here. Well, we do have a nice view out our back window if I can ignore my neighbor's trash piles...

Yes, a good reminder that our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost and ye are not your own.

I pray the Lord will help me glorify him in my body and spirit, as they belong to God.

I am sure your husband and kids are proud of you. I know I am!

Great video, Karen, and beautiful views! I feel the same as you do...to glorify the Lord by being a witness to others of His power and love, and to have the physical ability to give the best care to my family for as long as I can.

Crunchin' with you, sister!

WTG Karen! Great job with the vlog and working out for an hour. You're right, we are doing this to honor the Lord and bring glory to Him (and for our families).

Have a blessed day!

Karen, I just want to say, "you go girl!" I know that exercising has been my hardest battle, but when I do it, I feel so great.
So just keep at it (at least for 21 days...that´s how long it takes to make a good habit :)) and once you´ve tasted the benefits, you´ll be motivated to keep on keeping on.

Karen said...

Thank you for your encouragement friends! I never would have gotten out there on that bike were it not for CHRISTMAS CRUNCH!

Dani Joy said...

Isn´t this awesome!! I am so amazed at how well we are all gelling and motivating each other!

I have a big big spot in my heart for all you ladies already!!

Wonderful Karen!

Great idea to pray for your neighbors while you crunch... now that is multi-tasking!
