Mosey back to SP

Q starts the PAX, legs up at 90 degrees, hands under your rear. One PAX at a time in a wave like motion- Each PAX counts off aloud as they drop and hold 1,2,3, etc around the circle until finished.  Drop straightened legs to 10 degrees and hold until a full revolution has been made (as the second hands would move around a clock) then return to 90 degrees and repeat until smoked!

ComplacencySometimes when we get in a routine we can find ourselves being complacent or taking things for granted.  It required almost maximum daily effort to keep growing physically, spiritually, and in relationships. Lately I feel like I have found myself be complacent as a parent.   I have a plan for my physical growth(F3), a plan for my spiritual growth (quite times), a plan for my marriage growth (date night etc.), and a plan a t work.  I have realized that I spend lots of time with my kids but they are going to be gone soon and there is so much I want to share with them.  I have realized I need to develop a plan and be intentional with my kids. My challenge to you is to look at your life this week and seek out ways that you can be less complacent and more intentional.

YHC was in a mental funk this week that bled into the Q, but the PAX pushed hard and showed a lot of grace when I forgot things like “how to count to four” or that we didn’t name the FNGs. Twas a good reminder that we’re in this together. We push each other. We support each other. F3 Knoxville is doing good things.

Weigels comment at the start of the workout hit a good nerve, “Elvis, man. Seems like you’re only showing up with you’re on Q.” A keen observation. I knew September was going to be a busy month. So, I intentionally signed up to Q a couple times, knowing it would be a way to hold myself accountable. Maybe that’s not the best way to go about it, but it’s been a good MO for me this month.

“Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” – Coach John Wooden

A good life is built one block at a time.  It takes effort and intentionality.  HIMs understand that their lives are not their own, that they get better in order to give more to those the love and live with.  Coach Wooden’s definition of success is appropriate for every area of life…physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Each F3 workout is a microcosm of life.  Take what you learned this morning, keep pushing and give it away!

The PAX pushed hard this morning!  It is an incredible experience to line up each morning with men who are ready to reach past their limits to get better and make sure their brothers are doing the same.  Prayer time at the end was especially good.  Praying for needs and hearing praise reports was inspiring for YHC.  Can’t wait to get back out there and do it again!
