I blindly joined Crossfit Berrien last week. I’ve been pretty scared of high intensity workouts for the longest time, but I’ve heard so much good about it. Jeremy and Carina made me want to try it out.
So, I’m four days in and I love it. It’s challenging, it’s spontaneous, it’s quick, it’s intense. I’m looking forward to seeing progress!
Medicine Ball Cleans are very hard.
p.p.s My shoulders were sore from front squats and SDHP’s like I never felt in my life =/
Thinking of completely blowing up the list of blogs I’m following and starting from scratch. Should I?
12 So Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses cried to the Lord about the frogs, as he had agreed with Pharaoh.[d] 13 And the Lord did according to the word of Moses. The frogs died out in the houses, the courtyards, and the fields. 14 And they gathered them together in heaps, and the land stank. 15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he hardened his heart and would not listen to them, as the Lord had said.
Verse 15 hit me hard this morning. I realized that I’m like Pharaoh. I very often find myself in a hard spot (most of the time I do it to myself), and I ask God to help me out. So often I ask for an extra dose of grace to keep me strong in temptations, or to forgive me when I do wrong. And as soon as I’m wrapped up in that grace, I take it for granted. I harden my heart. Pharaoh did this enough to get to a spot where he put himself too far from God’s grace, adamantly refusing it. I don’t want to get there.
Lord, forgive my hardened heart. Soften it and make receptive to your voice.
