Give Me Your Eyes - Brandon Heath

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God my whole body isn't sore, just the middle portion.  
  • Thank you God I didn't wuss out to not work.
  • Thank you God for being able to go to life group finally.
  • Thank you God for the tens unit.  It helps so much with sore, tired muscles.

  • I didn't have as much protein yesterday as I probably should have and I'm totally craving protein this morning.  Worked out earlier today than I had been.  Feels good.
  • Zuzka Light is doing a 30 Day Butt Challenge.  Normally I don't care to do any of the challenges, but I thought, why not?  I am not taking any photos or measurements or anything like that.  I just want to overall feel better and more toned.  I really love her workouts, her attitude and everything.  I am a week behind her in the workouts as she started this Butt Challenge last week.

    These workouts are not just for girls, but guys can do them also.
  • Looking forward to rest day tomorrow, but I am very glad to workout again.  Overall, I feel better workout out, despite the soreness.  My husband is totally having fun that I'm so sore and unable to move that quickly, especially after I've been sitting for awhile.
