2. Think FIT
Prepare yourself for success by changing the way you think about your fitness.
"Think FIT" is a short statement we use to FOCUS our thoughts on what we want to achieve.
F = Faithful
Be Consistent and Never Give Up.
I = Intentional
Be Deliberate, always "on purpose".
T = Teachable
Be Humble, always eager to learn.
Check out the Minister Fitness Basics for more on Think FIT.
3. Set Goals
Set specific and measurable goals for what you want to achieve. Make sure your goals are directly related to your purpose - what God built you for.
Generally speaking, God built you to Advance The Kingdom. So, any goal you come up with should point back to this purpose. This is how you can make sure that you stay aligned with God.
4. Watch What You Consume
In physical fitness, what you eat and how much you eat can sabotage your fitness efforts. Likewise, in Minister Fitness, what you consume can sabotage your fitness efforts.
5. Keep It Moving
Want to know the secret to weight loss? Here it is: Move more and consume less. Nothing complicated, and I just gave you the secret free of charge,while there are people going broke buying into diet programs and pills.
Jesus instructed his followers to pray, "Lead us...", which implies movement on our part. Of course, there is a time for rest. But remember, this is a journey - a faith walk - so keep it moving, as the Lord leads you through the power of the Holy Spirit.
6. Track Your Progress
You need to track your progress to see your progress. Keep a journal or diary, or even keep a video log of your daily progress.
