Fall Fitness

The fall and winter holidays are rapidly approaching. And for many of us that means less physical exercise and more comfort food – too much more! LOL

Now is an excellent time to begin a fall workout routine to get ahead of the fitness curve. BlackBerry has a great basic fitness app, iFitness, to help to motivate and keep you on track. It’s like having a personal trainer right on your mobile phone!  (BTW, the iFitness app is also available for iPhone users.)

iFitness provides:

  • Over 230 exercises using free weights and equipment
  • Logs which allow you to track your progress
  • 10 exercise routines from strength building to weight loss

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwelleth in you.” 1 Corinthians 3:16 One of the best ways we can honor that temple is to take proper care of it!

TTYL, got to get back to my exercises!

Until next time, remember, you can do all things thru Christ Jesus!

Be Blessed!

Faith and Fitness


“Do you not know your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own” 1 Corinthians 6:19

Are you in shape? Spiritually? Yes? What about physically?

We must not defile the incredible bodies which God has given us by engaging in licentiousness lifestyles; nor desecrate our temples by abuse or neglect.

It is important to take proper physical care of our bodies, just as it is necessary to take proper spiritual care of them. Fitness, exercise and proper nutrition are all important components of taking proper care of our total beings!

With the right apps your mobile phone can become a personal trainer and fitness companion. Here are some of the best fitness apps available:

Cardio Trainer – This well rounded app is focused on running and other cardio activities. Tracks your run and counts your steps. Plus, it has integrated music playback! Works on Android.
Endomondo – Runners, track where you run (with GPS), how long you run, and your personal best times. It’s called a “fitness social network” because it allows you to network with other runners! Works with Android, BlackBerry, and iPhone.
GymGoal ABC – Offers 280 exercises. Animations show how to use gym equipment properly to avoid injuries. Works on iPhone and iPod touch.
GymTechnik – From it’s large library you can create your own exercise routine. Works with BlackBerry, iPhone and Android.
Lose It! – Let’s you create your own weight-loss goals, track calories, and record your meals and workouts. Works with iPhone and iPod touch.

What better time for families to get active and stay connected while building  strong spiritual foundations?

Daily Affirmation of Faith

Positive affirmations can be amazingly good for us. They can transform our lives, improve our health, and renew our joy and passion for life. One of the great things about social media, is that we can bless others by sharing positive affirmations with our social networks.

Here is a powerful affirmation I use it to start each day. BTW, I’ll be tweeting these, and sharing them with all my Facebook friends!

My Daily Confession of Faith

In Christ I am anointed, and a powerful person of God.

I am a joint heir with Jesus, and more than a conqueror!

I am a doer of the Word of God, and a channel for His blessings.

If God be for me, who can be against me?

I am blessed coming in, and I am blessed going out.

My enemies are fleeing before me.

God has commanded His blessings on my storehouses. He has opened His good treasures, and I shall lend and not borrow.

I am the head and not the tail.

He has given me power to make wealth.

I dwell in the secret place. I have his protection and provision.

God is my refuge and my fortress. I am not afraid of the snare of the fowler.

No evil shall befall me, and no plague shall come neigh my dwelling.

God has given his angels charge over me, and they are bearing me up in their hands, lest I dash my foot against a stone, as declared in Psalm 91.

1 Peter 2:9 establishes I am a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, and a holy nation.

I am a peculiar person called out of darkness into His marvelous light.

1 Peter 2:24 says I have been healed by the stripes of Jesus. Cancer, sugar diabetes, heart disease, sickness, afflictions, infections, or any other disease cannot enter into my body.

I am without spot or blemish, an intercessor, the righteousness of God,  saved and washed in the blood of Jesus.

“No weapon formed against me shall prosper.  And every tongue that rises against me in judgement you shall condemn. This is a heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is from me,” saith the Lord.

I am saved from  wrath by Him and justified  by the blood of the lamb.

Lord, I pray that those may prosper that love Jerusalem, that peace will be within them, and prosperity in their houses, according to Psalm 122:6-9. Amen

This awesome affirmation is from a book entitled Prayers published in 2000 by Christian Word Ministries.  I listen to this affirmation each morning on my digital recorder. It prepares me for the day, and  keeps me lifted up. It is critically important to know who you are, and whose you are!

You were born for greatness. There’s no limit to what you can do through Christ Jesus! 

God Bless,

Kenneth Lillard
