fit report: winter activites

well, winter is clearly on its way here in minnesota with snow and chilly temps in the forecast. this is all awesome and i really don't mind except for one thing. my ability to run. as i have mentioned several time through out this blog, i love to run. its my favorite form of exercise by far and this time of year always makes my relationship with running a little tricky. for one, i like to run in the daylight. this is more for safety being a women. and two, sometimes it is just too dang cold to run outside. especially when that sun goes down. 

so i am in need of a new fitness routine. aka, back to the gym i go. working out in the winter is way harder. you have to take off your clothes and put cold ones on, just to go back into the cold and head to the gym. its hard getting motivated to do just that, and the workout hasn't even begun yet. my goal of working out three times a week just got a whole lot harder.

but never mind here we can't let that get in the way of defeat, so i have come up with a few ways that i am planning on staying active during the winter/colder months.

soccer league chad and i signed up for a weekly soccer league that starts next tuesday. cannot wait!

yoga: i am really hoping to keep practicing yoga by attending a class once a week. there are a few good ones right by my fitness center by my house. for me, i know that i am more likely to back out of a workout after work (all i want to do is get home, cook dinner, and spend time with chad/homework) so i am going to try going to a wendesday morning class every week. if i miss that class, i hope to get to one on sunday evenings.

ice skate/winter hike: though the lakes haven't frozen yet, i am hoping to engage in more activities outdoors. you can bundle up and enjoy these things most months so i am going to make it a goal to do so every other week.

find classes at the gym, or equipment you really enjoy: realistically i will for sure be doing my soccer league every week but i am going to have to try and work out at the gym still. i love going to classes and hope that i can get better at doing this. otherwise, i do find the stair stepper enjoyable for some odd reason. i hope that i can have a good balance and do each of these things at least once a week.

how do you stay fit in the winter?


p.s. this is the new version of fit report. i used to post my fit report weekly, sharing my workouts with everyone but i felt like it got too repetitive so i have decided that i am going to continue with the fit reports but have them more designed to share a health and wellness or fitness topic, not just share my workouts every week.

  1. CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?

    What is the meaning of calling on the name of the Lord? Many assume that believing in Jesus and saying a form of a sinner's prayer constitutes, calling on the name of the Lord. The problem with that theory is none of the conversions under the New Covenant support that assumption. Not one time is anyone ever told to believe and say the sinner's prayer in order to be saved.

    The apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost quoted the prophet Joel, Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (NKJV)

    The apostle Peter preached the first gospel sermon under the New Covenant. Peter did not tell the 3000 converts to believe and say the sinner's prayer.

    Peter preached the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. He preached Jesus as both Lord and Christ. When they heard this they asked Peter and the rest of the brethren what they should do?(Acts 2:22-37) Peter told them what to do. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

    How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost call on the name of the Lord and become saved?
    1. They believed that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.
    2. They believed that God raised Jesus from the grave.
    3. They repented. Repentance is a change of heart. Repentance means to be converted so that God may forgive your sins. Repentance is to make the intellectual commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God. (Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38)
    4. They were immersed in water (baptized) so that their sins could be forgiven.

    How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost not call on the name of the Lord?
    1. They did not say a sinner's prayer.
    2. Not one person was asked to pray for forgiveness.
    3. Not one single man was told to be baptized as a testimony of his faith.
    4. No one was told that water baptism was a just an act of obedience.
    5. No one was informed they were saved the very minute they believed.
    6. Not one person was told that water baptism was not essential for the forgiveness of sins.
    7. Not one person was told to be baptized so they could join a denominational church.

    Jesus said he that believes and is baptized shall be saved. (Mark 16"16) Jesus did not say he who believes and says a sinner's prayer shall be saved.

  3. Was that picture taken recently?? It's beautiful, but it's making me cold haha. I agree that it is harder to workout in the winter. I'm not sure how you feel about weight classes, but I've been taking a BodyPump class at my gym that really challenges me and I love it. Yoga is a great workout too.

  4. I signed up for the Disney Half Marathon, which is all great but it's January 11th in Florida, and I live in Wisconsin! Alas all my training is in the cold, so I'm praying for the snow to hold off long enough to at least get my long runs done outside during the day (safety for me too) and I can do my 3-4 mile runs on the treadmill inside (boo). Gotta do what you gotta do, right?
