Mosey Back To AO

Consistency is so hard for me in every aspect of life. Whether it is eating healthy, getting to the workout in the mornings or more serious things like praying for my wife/family every night, I struggle with it. As an F3 nation we as men need to come alongside each other and encourage one another to stay consistent in our lives and hold each other accountable. It can work for a while by yourself but eventually we fall victim to the voice in our head telling us to let up and take the easy road but every time we do that we regret it. Anytime I fartsack for a workout, an hour after the workout would have been over I regret it. I have never regretted going to a workout, ever, period.

Edit looked strong as usual but Goose was trying his hardest to keep up. Somebody at the end smarted off to Pinto and Lilydipper about their age and got put in the sleeper hold. Great workout as everyone really pushed it and we put over 2 miles of sprinting in.

Pinto brought a good word with all the fast and furious things around us, there is one thing that remains constant and that is Christ. Even though the horrible fires have happened up in Sevier County we know that he is sovereign and in control.

The PAX put in some good work today and we were sweating like it was summer. Timberlake made it back from Louisiana and Goose was getting in a workout before his 5th date! Good to see Smallmouth back out and you wouldn’t want to run into him in a dark alley, he is a straight up beast!
-Prayers for Pinto’s family and their cabin up in Gatlinburg
– Prayers for all of the families in Sevier County

P-nut thanked everyone for coming to POST on a hot, humid, sunny afternoon. He talked about how good it was to experience the fellowship of a small group…groups like today. He was able to engage with most everyone in the PAX in a meaningful way- and it encouraged him to know that there were brothers committed to help each other get better.

P-nut took prayer requests, including: sympathy for a death of an acquaintance of Timberlake, cancer relief for a friend of Hooker, praise for Sleeveless as he’s found a place to live in Dallas and thanksgiving for the upcoming marriage of Beyonce.

The PAX came ready to sweat. Even as the temperatures soared, the mumblechatter and conversation was free-flowing and positive. A great end to a great day.

1 John 2:15-17
Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.


The PAX really pushed it today carrying around the 50lb sandbags. There will be some sore shoulders in the morning with all the mumblechatter/complaining (cough cough Edit) we heard during the workout. It is always good to hear questions like, “are you serious?” while giving instructions for the next exercise. This just means we are doing it right and all the PAX from the workout today would agree that we pushed ourselves hard to make ourselves better.

Matthew 16:24-26 – Christ made the ultimate sacrifice in leaving his Heavenly throne and coming down to die on a cross to save us and give us true life in him. In response through our loving relationship with him, we are called to sacrifice ourselves and live for him above all. Everything else in this world will never be enough no matter much it tells us it will be. It will never satisfy or fulfill us. Christ is the only thing that can. By sacrificing ourselves to live in Christ in our new selves, we are given the ability through Christ to sacrifice ourselves in relationship with our families, friends, classmates, co-workers, and to share Christ by doing so. So let us not choose our on way or ourselves but choose the way of Christ. This is part of the core of being HIM (High Impact Man)!

The PAX took Monday morning by storm. They worked their tails off and never stopped moving. The encouragement from the PAX this morning was phenomenal, pushing each other and affirming the Q’s by their words and efforts. Running Cardiac Hill together is always great times with the PAX, conquering the feat together and encouraging one another at the top. Great effort to start the week!
