Workout 2/23: DB Derby

The greatest intentions don't amount to anything; it's action that matters. This is true in every aspect of life. If we don't follow through on our intentions, then we've fooled ourselves and most likely let others down in the process. I am learning this in my work, in my marriage, in my parenting, in my coaching, in my Christian walk, and in all endeavours I commit to. I have been on both sides of this issue too. I have had intentions that I failed to meet. I have been let down by the intentions of others. But isn't it wonderful that grace covers all. My focus this week and over all my weeks is to follow through on my intentions whether they are spoken or not.

Speaking of intentions, I intended to do "Nasty Girls" this morning with the Saturday group, but physical limitations held me back. The crook of my elbow has been reminding me that I have a dull ache, so I was not able to partake in the fun that is known as "Nasty Girls." However, I do not believe I was let off the hook easily by Coach Gio. Nope, in fact, I think I got the harder workout this morning. Of course there is no way to truly justify that, but I got kicked in the pants pretty good by the Dumbbell Derby. So here it is; good luck!
