The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    My Road Trip with Pup

    OK so a few of you know that Pup and I planned a road trip to go see Spidey graduate yesterday. I told Rob he could plan EVERYTHING, and he did The original plan was to leave Sunday morning, stop and do some shopping, and go to graduation. I called Rob Friday night once I got into town and asked how he felt about going dopwn to Lansing Saturday night to party with my friends and he said ok. Saturday rolls around and Rob said he would call around 7ish to let me know to come over to his place and then we would head to Lansing. Well 3:30 pm my phone rings "Hey Allie, I'm outta work, come on over!" Little deoas Rob know I'm in my pj's watching a movie LOL


    SO I pack and get dressed and call him back an hour latter to let him know I'm en route to his house. So my mom gives me a hug and the general drive safe, don't drink too much, and call if you need anything and hands me my new cell phone (with the users guide LOL) So I hop in my truck and drive to Rob's place. I got to meet his mom and stuff, and we got the same lecture from her then got in the car and headed towards Lansing.

    To waste three hours in the car I set up the phone list on my cell and called a few random friends in the middle of their graduation that was goin on at MSU. The trip down was good we talked and joked around, sang to the radio, etc. When we got to my sorority house, everyone was gone to graduation, and I had allready turned in my key to the house the day before, so we had to break in I had mentioned I might come down so one of the girls left her window unlocked and I crawled in.

    So we chilled at the house for a while, the girls and their families came back after graduation and then we went out to HogShack to party. I had a good time as usual I was a good kid too, only had 6 drinks and kept the table dancing to a minimum. I mean when the party is at a hog farm, there isn't too much trouble to cause LOL Basicly it's a bunch of the kids from the college of agriculture that party together all fo the time. I think Rob had a good time, he always had a drink in his hand, which is a good sign.

    SO we left the party at like 3 am. Me, as usual, was a hungry drunk, and Jimmy John's was closed So we went back to the house and ordered pizza. So round about 4 am the pizza guy shows up, and we sit around bull shitting, and head off to bed soon after.

    The next morning we were up at 11:30 and ready to go to Spidey's graduation. I'm a little paranoid about finding the place so we get going. Long about the time we get there, Rob and I decided we had no clue where the graduation was at LOL Luckily I saw all of these cars and then a sign, and it was right on our way Thank God for dumb luck. We sat through two hours of graduation to watch Spidey walk across the stage and get his diploma, it was exciting LOL Then we jumped back into the car and headed out to meet Spidey and his family for dinner. We got to the restraunt about 50 mins early and decided to go over to the mall and go shopping. Rob needed a new pair of shoes and I was on a hunt for pink flip flops. We managed to waste 50 mins, and went back over to the restraunt. We had dinner, then headed back across the state for home.

    Rob and I had alot of great conversation and are even thinking about another road trip. We are deffinitly going to hang out this summer. All in all it was a SUPER fun trip

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    It was a blast, my buddy allie is without the queen of random stories, we talked about everything under the sun, i was so hungover from the party at hogshack, not to mention the trip home from holland was rather interesting, i.e-we got lost in the wrong part of Lansing, all in all, it was a good time and we decided we get along well enough to hang out more often
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    Actually I set Rob up with one of my sorority sisters for formal, and they hung out this weekend at the house. I might possibly be a decent matchmaker

    Hmm...interesting thought guys, but no, allie and i are just buds, no budding romance here, as good of friends as we are, that option isn't exactly on the table.

    LMAO

    Well the whole porn princess thing originated from a conversation a while ago with friend (I should mention it was a guy.) He knows I'm very against sending out naked pictures on the internet so jokingly I said I was start my own at home porn industry, like that was really an acceptible alternative. At that point he called me the porn princess, and it has lingered LOL

    Ok, I am going to have to go the "When Harry Met Sally" card here. Men and women cannot be friends. While this may not be entirely accurate, assuming the two "friends" are heterosexual, at least one of the two "friends" will want the relationship to go further. If they find each other to be somewhat physically attractive (and this is not all that important because emotional attachment has a way of making someone more attractive), then the natural progression is to a deeper relationship, and amongst men and women this leads to a sexual component to the relationship. Again, at least one of the two will entertain thoughts of a physical relationship, and this pretty much changes the "friendship". Think of it this way, you two obviously like each other, I am guessing that there is no physical repulsion involved, and (assuming you are both heterosexual) what is the logical progression of two opposite gender individuals who are not otherwise attached? You will be together, oh yes you will, mark my words... Oh yeah, that is a sooner or later sort of thing, it may take time for the two of you to admit to each other your real feelings

    LMAO! Allie, that was good...

    I understand your point, Chris, but I think that we operate on other levels in addition to the biological level. It all gets mixed up together and that is what makes these things so complex.
