Class has officially begun!

on January 17, 2012

Morning!!  🙂   I took a bit of a break yesterday from blogging so that I could just relax and mentally prepare myself for my Seminary class that started yesterday.  As a matter of fact, I think I only took pictures of breakfast.



One banana, two slices of gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread, and almond butter.


Here is why I love working out so much.  If you ever feel like you are dragging or have no energy.  Take a walk, or a jog, or pop in a workout DVD.  This always does the trick for me.   The BodyRock website hadn’t put up the new workout for Monday yet, so I grabbed on of my Firm DVD’s and worked it.

My church is associated with the Southern Baptist Convention and one of the many super cool things about them is that they offer what’s called Seminary Extension classes.  These are classes that anyone can take, even if you are not studying to become a pastor.  Which I am not.  I have taken two classes so far and this will be my third.  History of Christianity, Systematic Theology, and now Christian Ethics.  After taking the first session last night, I am pretty excited about taking it.  Want to hear something cool?  I read a small devotion before I went and it referenced the scripture in Romans 12 verse 2.  “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”  Well, when I get to class and read the second paragraph of the intro, it was the same passage.  I shouldn’t be surprised, but it was nice to see the connection and the affirmation of the class.  The class will cover the next 10 weeks, with that said, my plan is to still work in a workout, eat balanced meals, and get plenty of rest/sleep.



Today’s workout consisted of the BodyRock 2012 Challenge Week 3 Day 11.  Which took about 20 minutes.  It hurt.  😉  The second part did anyway.  Push-ups!!


Breakfast today!

Overnight Oats:

In the mix:

1/2 cup to 1 cup of 2% milk

1/3 cup of gluten-free oats

1 tsp of chia seeds

1 tbls of wheat berries

1/2 scoop of whey protein powder

*not shown is 1 tbls of almond butter


Put all ingredients into a covered bowl or cup.  Stir ingredients and put into the refrigerator.  Eat the next morning.  It’s a great recovery breakfast.

Well I am off to shower, get to work and hopefully have a great day!  I guess that last part is up to me.  🙂

Question:  What about you?  Any challenges coming up this week or in the next few weeks?
