You cant out King your Queen- The first F is simple fitness, but its not just working out, in fact most of us cant just work out but we also need to understand what we are putting into our bodies. There was a time in the past 15 years of my life where i weighed 300 pounds. i was lazy and did not care what i put into my body. its important that we understand that setting up guiderails for ourselves to know what we can eat and still improve our fitness is a key part of being a HIM.

YHC read a small piece from Q Source, i encourage everyone to check it out and think about how your treating your Queen.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“Progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”

Make sure the progress you are aiming to achieve in life is the progress that you need, not the progress you think you want.

4 Men this morning
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Self Discipline has been on my mind a lot lately. I listened to the audio book Atomic Habits by James Clear recently and he talked about changing your identity. One example for me is that I want to complete two Motus triathlons this summer. My goal should not be to finish the triathlons, but to become a triathlete. When you change your identity, it changes how you do things. Now when I go to do something unhealthy, I think about whether or not a triathlete would do that. Because I am a triathlete and a triathlete wouldn’t do whatever it is I want to do, I don’t do it. This works no matter what your goal is. Want to quit smoking? Identify as a non-smoker. A non-smoker doesn’t smoke and that’s what you are, so you don’t smoke. Want to run a marathon? Then identify as a runner and do what runners do. So far it seems to be working for me!
MOLESKIN:
Today is Good Friday. Try to take some time to think about what that means to you. Happy Easter!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
See the service opportunities channel in slack. If we have enough interest maybe even make one for Blount County? Let’s continue being HIMs outside of the gloom.
