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 Body: His Temple.

    Guess I have been off track for a long time now. Haven't really been taking things seriously since I landed this new job. Was having some quiet time last night, and starting to think that the root of most of my problems/stress is because I haven't been in the gym doing what I should be, and I haven't been eating right at all. First few weeks are just going to be to get in the groove... so no calorie counting until I've gotten myself straightened out.

    Have been thinking a lot about some Bible scripture that I referred myself to awhile ago, about the body being the Temple of God... and honestly, I haven't been doing my part to keep that Temple in good condition physically or mentally. Self esteem issues, along with a stressful job and poor nutrition is not a good combination.

    So let's get started...

    Current stats:
    Age: 20
    Ht: 5'10
    Wt: 183
    Bf: ~17? Not too flabby.

    I'll take measurements in about a week or two when I've swollen up a little bit from using the muscles. Haven't used them in a long time and I would be embarrassed to post what I think it is.

    "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Corinthians 6:20).

    Hit the gym early this morning at 6:00am. Did chest and tris. Took it easy cause I had some stomach pains, but managed to buff out a decent workout for the first time back.

    --

    Chest
    * Flat DB Press - 70x10,10,8
    * Cable Cross - 60x10,10,10
    * HS Press - 140x10,8,6

    Tris
    * Cable Pressdown - 100x12,10,10

    --

    I'll probably add 2-3 sets next week on the triceps. Wanted to get a feel for things today, as well as the urge to toss my empty stomach up. We'll see.

    Tomorrow Back/Bis lined up.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "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!"
    Romans 7:14-25
