lent challenge day 23

Lent Wellness Challenge Day 23
In our physical bodies we need strength, endurance and flexibility.  We have strength through Jesus Christ.  He helps us in our endurance too.

Endurance exercises also know as cardiovascular exercises are needed daily.  It used to be, the College of Sports Medicine recommended 20- 30 minutes of cardiovascular conditioning 3-5 times a week as a minimum requirement.  Although this is still true, they now recommend we aim for an hour of exercise or 10,000 steps a day.

 In our culture, we are very sedentary.  The average American only gets 3500 steps in a day.  We also have a very high rate of adult onset diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.  Research shoes that fit individuals are less likely to develop adult onset diseases.  This is big news for our very sick culture; even our children are developing adult onset diseases.  Endurance exercises are things like walking, bicycling, running, swimming.  How can you fit in your endurance training today and avoid being sedentary?

Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,” NKJ

John 13:17  If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” NKJ

Be fit and be blessed,
