Pick yourself up Daddy said Devotional 69

I garuntee anybody who is anybody has heard of this slogan once or twice in their life. That slogan is, If YOU fall down pick yourself up...
For me that wasn`t just a saying for around the house, that was a way of life. As a child I never could get my feet right with my balance, everytime I fall , my father would say `Anthony get yourself up.`I did that. Eventually my father got tired of seeing me fall all the time so he did the best thing. He took action and when I say action I don`t mean he took me to baseball games and we shared popcorn. I mean physical action.
My father would be one who would train me, so that I would be in the best physical shape that I could ever be in. My father trained me like Rocky, and no that is not a pun it actually happened.

Training for me began at age 13-14. I was to eat eggs like people drink water. Every morning my father would say I would have to drink 3 eggs so that I could be bigger and stronger. I would have large portions of pasta, meat , rice and vegatables on a daily basis. But I`m a small guy and really didn`t put on weight for all that I was eating, So to regualate my weight, I was put on a protein shake and started going to the gym. Well alot of people don`t know how I got to the gym, I`ll tell you... His name is HULK HOGAN. The first time I saw him on TV it was Hogan vs the Warrior. I said to my dad I want to be just like him.

In this commerical you see here, that kid resembled me and what I thought I should look like.

Than as I got older, I started to get busy and had less and less time for the gym. So eventually it became a none existant priority.
That all changed the moment I saw a video of John Cena working out....
Thus brought me back to my home away from home the gym. John Cena and I actually share a painful injury that we both suffered. A torn pectorol.

Coming back from an injury like that was not easy for me, mainly because I am very unique in the sense that my body differs from a regular adult. Because I have C.P. No save your pittu for the dogs... I don`t want it...For ,e it was difficult because my injury was very painful. I did ask for surgery, but doctors refused many times. Thinking that it would heal natrually. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER sitting around made the injury worse and it was hell on my mental state.

To get back to GOODLIFE I hired a trainer, to help me eat well, exercise properly and get results. My pectoral injury happened in the gym when I did the stupidest thing I could ever do which is lift 180 pounds. Now I did it, and I was so happy I called my father and said I did it dad just for you. I AM STRONG. But the downside to that is , because the weight itself was 180 I used my entire body to lift the weight. BAD IDEA, You know those WWE don;t try at home commericals , well yeah pretty much the same thing but with the workout.

With that being said, I have plenty of stress from time, to time. The gym itself is a great stress relief. However in the words of John Cena, I will Adapt and OVERCOME. Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]

2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."
