Making an effort

In case you missed it. Amy and I made a video last week… it’s cute. I had fun making it.   We were on vacation last week…. under the guise of celebrating our 15th anniversary.  It was a sequel to the trip we took this time last year when we went with a family we barely knew and met a family we hadn’t known…who are now are good friends.   It sounds like it might’ve been more than it was….. but it’s not.  Friends from our new church (we hadn’t completely committed to it at that time) had invited us to join them in what they were hoping was going to be a big group…but just ended up being the 3 families.    We only got to spend 2 nights and 3 days last year. This year we made a bigger deal… took the kids from school, took off from work, and drove back and forth up Rt 40 in Tenneessee.   Our first night there we made that video. I worked out…. I think I may have worked out 1 other time… but by the time I went to sleep Wednesday night I had already missed 3 workouts.  I had decided that I was just going to hit the pause button on this week… and pick up Week 9 on Monday.  But that has me making excuses…and getting out of it.  So I pressed play last night on what might’ve been one of the hardest workouts I’ve done. Perhaps it was just a result of not having momentum, perhaps it was just Shaun T being his Shaun T self and kicking it up a notch.  Core Speed is the bonus disc you get when you order through a Beachbody Coach.  I had forgotten all about it, until last week when I got a message asking me if I had tried it yet.  I hadn’t.  But now I have…. and I must say, it was intense.  I’m not convinced I’ll ever be able to pull off the one-arm burpees.

Today is a new day. One which started with breakfast and not Beachbody.  I’m not sure if I’ll get one in today or not… possibly the stretch dvd.  Tomorrow we run… the family will be running/walking/jogging/ambling for 3.1 miles around Blue Ash as part of the Matthew 25 Fighting Hunger 5k.  We’ve got a team of about 25 people walking together. We’re really excited to do this as a group but also as the a symbol of what has been an awesome season in our life, of fitness and faith and fighting…for ourselves, for our marriage, for our family, for our church, for our community.  This isn’t the end, it’s just a mile marker along the way.
