Daily Tip:

The heart rate monitor I use is the Timex IronMan Targeted Training watch. It allows me to set up the amount of time I want to exercise, and my target heart rate. When I get out of that heart rate zone, it beeps at me. I set up the exercise time for :30 minutes and do TWO sessions. That way, if I'm walking or jogging out on the street, I can got "out" for :30 minutes, then know when to turn around and head back.

Daily Thought:

This body will not last. It is temporary. That's why we shouldn't be obsessed about it or place our hope in it. However, that's different from being fit and healthy so that we can use the body God gave us to help others, enjoy our family and be an example of self control and discipline. We should care for our bodies so that we can glorify God through our use of it.
