NFPT Live Episode #38

Some of our viewers said:

YES, external factors are huge! The weather is killing our motivation ugh…been pining for spring for so long – 2 days ago was a blizzard and last night tornado watches! – can’t wait to get outside for long walks and hiking!


Thank you for being real, Bev! I’m super inconsistent about exercise and I need to tap into why I am being inconsistent. 


Agree on intentional training. We’re given one body for our life here on earth….why not take care of it! God gave us a temple to care for, not to destroy and abuse. When we feel horrible, it’s hard to love and care for others.


I like to walk – I love going to the movies it 4 miles away from my house going to the movie is my gift from walking.
