Work Out Struggles

Do I Have What I Need When it Relates to My Work Out?

I’m struggling to understand my inability to work out when I have what I need to get the job done.  I know I need to work out somehow, someway and all because, it makes me feel better.

I ponder the need to shower, wash my hair, get ready, or whether I should wait till after work, then, I talk myself out of working out after work because of the energy I get after the work out.  I don’t want it to hinder my ability to sleep.

I have a gym at work and at home, yet I struggle with using it because, I’m at work and my not wanting to get hot and sweaty. I even bring workout clothes to wear so I can work out after work then I can head home after my work out.  But then I think about traffic. I think I will wait and work out when I get home then, home-life gets in the way.

To Pay Or Not To Pay

When I pay for a membership somewhere I push myself to work out because, of the money I am spending, so I go to the gym because I need to get my dollars’ worth out of it.  Then, there is the question can I even afford to pay this monthly fee to work out.  Then, I think about the long-term expense and yet there is the long-term benefit of working out. 

God created this body, I need to take care of it period!  What I put in my body can cause good and bad outcomes.  In the long run, it can affect the span of my life.  Lord, I need help in maintaining a regular regimen.  I cannot do it on my own because, of all the reasons I have listed above.

Open My Eyes

I enjoy walking outdoors, Lord open my eyes to see your beauty. I too hear all your beauty. I get to hear the birds chirping and to see what you created, the trees, the flowers, the creatures crawling on the earth and then, I see what we created, the roads, signs, vehicles, structures that impede your beauty. 

I even think about the weeds growing that are green and that don’t require our care and they even look beautiful.  I know if I focused on myself as you have created me to be, I can either damage what was good or I can take care of what you created for good. 

This World

I think about all that is transpiring in this world right now.  There is so much pain and suffering going on in this world and in my body. Are the end of times at hand for this world and for my body or is this just the beginning?

Our physical being is what we are focusing on We are focused on how we look, what we wear and what we have. We’ve forgotten what we enjoy and the joy we get out of how we feel.

How we feel has been shut down, because, we have to deal with what is here and now. 

We have lost focus on our ultimate purpose which is life here and now.  When we have You Lord and make You our daily focus we can look forward to eternity with You. 

So, it’s time to get to work and work out all that is manifesting in us and around us!
