Weighty Concerns

Ugh. Since coming to seminary more than a year and a half ago, my bodyfat content has doubled. I've been pretty faithful about workouts, but I'm eating like a seminarian (peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

On the day that I got married, I was a lean 9% bodyfat. Alas, no more. So I recently shifted from a muscle-building workout to a fat-loss workout.

But then, I realized that I was in error. If I want to be a proper Methodist minister, I should not lose ten pounds, but gain twenty. It says that somewhere in The Book of Discipline, but the paragraph number escapes me at the moment.

I think it's in the section that says that every committee meeting must be preceded by a potluck supper.

God has certainly " bless(ed) me and enlarge(d) my territory."

Darn this prosperity gospel...

I hear that BOOM interviews for probationary membership feature a weigh-in for qualification.

I went from 201 to 223 this past fall in my first semester here at Perkins. I tend to eat when stressed and give up sleep and exercise to find extra time to study and do church work. Though I did find that the stationary bike was a good place to go through Greek vocab flash cards.
