Friday, July 23, 2010....Day 188

Day 188 of the Fruit Feast. The price of mangoes went up dramatically today so i am out of them for now. But i was able to get some delicious watermelon very cheap along with some ready-to-eat bananas. Breakfast and lunch consisted of these and supper was some raw cabbage wraps. Of Christ the bible says,

Psalms 85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

What a combination, Mercy & Truth. Some people are very crude and vulgar and use the excuse that they are telling the truth. But in Christ one can speak the truth and not be crude, cold and hard. Truth can be combined with mercy. i pray that combination be developed more fully in my character to the glory of the Father.

i have had a very good week in terms of working out. i played 21 games (Twenty-one!) of full court basketball on Wednesday. i was totally soaked (it was in the 90s) and totally drained afterwards. It felt fantastic! It was just me, my son Joshua and two other 19 year old kids. We played until almost 10pm at night. Like i said it was great. i also did 1630 push ups and 222 chins total for the week. Light on the chins this week as i did not do them in Dallas on Sunday so i missed a day. When i do the push ups, my form is not what would be considered strict. i pump my body up and down so as to maintain the isometric stress (it also feels really good). But today i decided to finish the week with very slow, very strict movements. i did a total of six sets of push ups 15-20 per set, going all the way down until my chest brushed the floor and all the way back up to the locked position and holding it there. i did the same thing with the chins. This way i only did 31 chins and 100 push ups. Great way to finish off the week.

About 8lbs of watermelon, 6 bananas.

Lunch: 10 bananas.

Dinner: 9 cabbage wraps.

Spiritual Bread: Psalms 85-89

Exercise: 100 push ups, 31 chins.

Sabbath Rest and Peace to all in Christ.

Have a wonderful weekend!
