It obviously was not soon enough as things had begun to go south as evidenced above!
So I have been hard at it since the beginning of January---now let's see---according to my calculations that is six whole weeks. OH--but I did take that week off while sunning on the beach---HEY but I kayaked and swam AGAINST the current while there. (We won't say anything about all I ate!) I AM NOT SEEING THE RESULTS I SHOULD!
I walked into that gym expecting a miracle after a few days of semi-dedicated work---and what have I gotten for all that hard work---sore muscles, aches and pains and the humiliation of standing by every young hard body in Fort Worth while wearing tights. Hey I've put in the time---five whole weeks of dedication--well except for the weekends and those days I tutor and any other special occasion I could not possibly miss. BUT surely everything should be firm and back in its proper place after FIVE WHOLE WEEKS!
THIS IS NOT FAIR!! Why, yes, I did spend five months getting into this pitiful shape---but---I HAVE spent a few days a week---exercising some--OK a little---for FIVE WHOLE WEEKS!!! WHERE ARE THE RESULTS!
Thus you have the human condition---expecting a miracle---and wanting to put out little or no effort on our part. We can be a sorry lot!
Reminds me of my spiritual shape---I spend a little time almost everyday in The Word---and I pray--especially when I have my tail between a rock and a hard place. Why aren't I experiencing the euphoria of God's presence 24/7? With all this minimal effort--surely our relationship should be growing closer? I just don't understand it---
I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
