CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Consider what you can do TODAY to show love toward your M, shorty, parents, etc. What’s the ONE thing you can do TODAY. I am often concerned with how I am doing, what I need and want that I neglect my wife. So, I told the guys I would stop by Starbucks on the way home to pick up my wife’s favorite drink.

I allowed the PAX a moment of silence to consider what they could do today.

We prayed for a little preschooler who had open-heart surgery. We also prayed for the family who lost their 9-year-old son in an accident.

MOLESKIN:
I usually have nightmares before my Qs. I woke up wicked early with my heart beating out of my chest and hard a hard time getting back to sleep. There were several times during the workout that I had to check my weinke and even when I checked, I didn’t check well enough and moved on before we had done a few exercises I had planned. I also had a hard time thinking on the spot this morning. Sleep is essential.

The 8-Count Body Builder Builders were a hit and I loved them. They were tough.

Snowball fight lacked the enthusiasm I hoped for, but it was fun to take a couple shots and we got to do burpees. YOLO.

The laps around the baseball pitch gassed me. The Bonnie Blair’s didn’t help. I forget just how much running can require of you, especially in the pow pow.

All in all, a fun workout. Could’ve been tougher with more gallivanting through the snow.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
