The Thang
Lent, a 40 day time from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday (not including Sundays). Goal is to focus on Christ. Taking things away that are distractions or adding practices to live more intentionally.
Today, 40 exercises, starting with 40 reps of the 1st (SSH) 39 of the 2nd (Imperial Walkers) and will go down to 1. After each exercise I will name a practice that might be worth considering to help you get better and to live more intentionally. Please think about choosing one or more practices to incorporate beginning today for the next 40 days and lets look back at Easter to see how these daily practices have shaped us to become better.
