Come, Walk With Me!

Aug 29

Ok, the subtitle of this blog is “Come Walk With Me” – so that’s what I would like to invite you to do.

Health and fitness is best done by the “Kaizen” method -one small step at a time, so you create habits that last a lifetime. That’s what I want to show you here.

Regardless of what shape you’re currently in, or what you think of health and fitness, I think this program will work for you. Why not give it a try – better yet, why not challenge a friend to try it with you?

Ok, a bit of fun before we get started!

Please fill in your answers to my poll here, and let’s just see where everybody is:

Ok, now here are this week’s assignments. They all start on Monday so you have the weekend to get yourself “kitted out” and “psyched up”:

1. Equipment Needs:

2. The Spiritual Challenge: Set up some “Altars” around your home and workplace, etc. to nudge your focus back on God. Each time you see your altar, just turn your thoughts to God. Here are some suggestions:

  • Put a rock in your pocket.
  • Light a candle in your office
  • Put a couple of drops of essential oil on a few tissues and tuck them around your home – under cushions, in pockets, under your computer keyboard, etc. Let the scent bring you to God.
  • Put a particular bracelet, necklace or ring on specifically to remind you of God
  • Hang up a picture or poster where you will see it often
  • Write some favourite Bible verses on cards and put them up in your bathroom, office, car, etc
  • Just a few ideas – no need to do them all. Choose one or two that appeal to you and use them as a trigger to think of God throughout the day.

3. Nutritional Focus: Water

  • Fill your water bottle half way and set it on your bedside table. When you wake up in the morning, drink it all up before you get out of bed.

4. The Exercise Program: Start increasing your daily steps!


Day
Training Exercise
Monday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by parking further away
Tuesday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by putting your phones (cell and portable) on the other side of the room (or on another floor!) so you have to get up to answer it.
Wednesday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by setting your remote controls on the top of the TV instead of beside you on the couch
Thursday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by not piling things on the top or bottom of the staircase to take up or down on your next trip. Take things and put them away each time
Friday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by not sending your kids to go do something/get something – do it or get it yourself
Saturday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by walking around when you’re on the phone
Sunday
Achieve 1000 steps per day by meeting a friend for a short walk before you drink coffee together.

And there you have it! Even YOU could keep up with those small, daily assignments. Why not give it a try? If you decided to do it, why not post your commitment below in the comments section? We’d love to be encouraged by your decision!
