Is That Bengay I Smell?

Tonight is our last night before summer vacation for Word of Life Olympians club at church.  I get to teach the lesson, so I'm going to be giving the kids a challenge to continue on with their daily devotions.  Just because they won't be turning in their books every week, doesn't mean their relationship with Jesus ends for the summer. 

I'm planning a really fun attention-grabber right at the start of the lesson.  Let's just say I'll be acting a little silly -- in public -- which is out of my comfort zone.  But I'm excited about the lesson I'm preparing, so I actually want to be silly with the intention that the kids will remember the visual through the summer months.

In other news...

I've been trying to kick up the fitness intensity in my life over the last week and a half.  Part of that involves The Biggest Loser game for Wii.  I've only used it a few times, but I like the workout I get from it.  I honestly didn't believe I would do well with push-ups, but I did them... and lived to tell about it.

I ran into trouble Monday, though.  I accidentally opted out of the warm-up and went directly into the workout.  (It really was an accident.)  Big no-no!  Now my left calf hurts like the dickens when I walk.  (Is it old-fashioned to use the term "dickens"?  If so, I will never use it again.)  I believe the sore muscle is due to the lack of a warm-up.  Won't do that again.

Hey, but the positive side to it is that it only hurts when I walk on it.  It doesn't hurt when I'm just sitting.

I walked laps yesterday, hoping it would help work that muscle out.  Not happenin'.  But I'm going to attempt walking again today.

So that's what's new in my little corner of the world.  Hope you have a lovely Wednesday.

Oh, and if you smell Bengay.  That's just me.  Sorry.



  1. We have the Biggest Loser for the Wii as well. You're right--it is a work out! You and I can smell like Bengay together. Great job!


  2. Ha ha! I wondered what I smelled! *grin* I hope you feel better soon. I'll be thinking of you as you teach your lesson. I work with our teen husband is the assistant pastor.
