My Workout Companion

I have gotten back to working out. I NEED TO. 

Grateful for a supportive husband who watches over our sons while I sneak out of bed during weekends to do cardio exercises. 

Working out without listening to anything is boring. Yes I could listen to upbeat songs but it's not enough for me to stay focused. I realized listening to podcasts makes working out more bearable for me. Better than watching an episode of a TV show or parts of a movie. It's also multitasking for me. I work out at the same time I catch up on my weekly podcasts. 

I listen to the following podcasts:

1. Saddleback Church Weekend Messages

Saddelback Church's current series is called the 50 Days of Transformation. Last weekend's message was Setting Goals by Faith. Catchy enough for you? It is for me. Very timely as I am going through Prayer & Fasting this week. I always learn so much from their Founding and Senior Pastor Rick Warren.

While NewSpring Church is not as popular as Saddleback Church, I subscribed to their weekly sermon. Their Founding ang Senior Pastor Perry Noble has so much energy that I think it passes on to me when I listen to his messages. Their current series is Change, and last week's sermon was The One Thing That Changes Everything.

Inspired to Action is a blog for stay at home moms like me  It's author Kat Lee is a stay-at-home who has already launched e-books and podcasts. She's been an inspiration. She's partly Filipina because of her mom. On her podcasts, she gives practical tips on managing the household, parenting and discusses current issues this world faces. Her current podcast is an interview with another mom blogger entitled, The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World.

You may subscribe to all three podcasts through iTunes. Links provided above by clicking on the podcast titles.

Their one thing in common is they are all Christians. And I need to listen to people like them all week long. I have to be constantly reminded and surrounded with God's Words. It has a positive effect on how I go through my day, how I deal with my husband and two sons and how I handle crisis. 
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
- Philippians 4:8, New Living Translation (NLT)

Hope your week had been productive!
