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?

    I am sure you'll be just fine. Just remember that no one really cares, everyone's probably sleepy or something
    I just had one today actually.

    Anyway good luck!

    "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!"

    a piss poor performance...

    ...I started off ok then I just choked, didn't know what to do it got worse and worse. I couldn't even say one full sentence (I was even close to walking out of there ). Then I started to walk around and it relaxed me more and more. At the end the where like 5 questions, I didn't expect any, most get like 1 or 2. Anyway they went extremly well.... So I guess for my 10min presentation it will go alot better, this one was not graded, and tomorrow im gonna see the tape. (the teacher filmed it, if I didn't mention this) The camera didn't make me nervous though.

    Its 'Technical English' so I spoke about communication satellites, I had writen a 4 page report on it for this week also.

    Thanks, I guess im happy 'bout it, that I got better and better. You know its wiered when I was the most nervous I looked at a person in the class and she was sort of smiling encourage me, wish made more nervous They are also suppose to write what they thought about it, it pisses me off when they write that they thought it was good when it was crap. Hate that stuff, when they try to pretend it was something else.

    Its really strange, I can poke myself with a needle and try and out run the police in my car with out being nervous, but I cant do this. In a stange way I like being in situations that I dont like/not use to, too try and improve on myself, be a better person or something I dunno.
