• Head & Shoulders Challenge: PAX Lineup facing each other with a cone between them. The Q sings the nursery rhyme ‘Head Shoulders Knees & Toes’ while the PAX Al Gore while doing the motions of the song. Once the Q says ‘Cone’ in the song, the PAX try to grab a cone from their opponent. The losing PAX member has to do the assigned exercises. Today we did: Ranger Merkins 20, Air Squats 20, VW’s 15, Murder Merkins 20 & Hand Release Burpees 5. Mumblechatter was high and it got very competitive during this fun challenge. My singing voice could use some work! Aye!
Pre-Thang: At 6:15, we moseyed over to the soccer field. Before we started I divided them PAX into 4 groups and explained the 5 stations. We started the exercises at 6:18. In their small groups the PAX did all exercises on the card, then moved to the next station. They especially hated Station #5 Killer Bees!

The Thang: At 5:28, the PAX moseyed to the Football Field so we could really get our heart rates up! YHC instructed the PAX to stay in their small groups and explained what we would be doing.
• 1st & 10: Field Marked in 10 yard increments: 1 Burpee at 10, then sprint rest to 100 yard. Recover jog to 20 yard line. 2 Burpees then sprint 90 yards. Repeat to 10 burpee’s or Omaha.
• The PAX buzzed through this beatdown so we did the full 100 yard sprint with 5 burpee’s and then repeated back 100 yards and 5 more Burpee’s.
Omaha was called at 6:48. I had the PAX get into groups for a chain run back to the shovel flags. The PAX were pretty gassed so we kept the pace slower but the mumblechatter was highly encouraging!

com·mit·ment. kəˈmitmənt. noun. 1. 1.
the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.
Are you ready to make a commitment to yourself?
We make commitments everyday.
Sometimes it seems easier to keep our commitments to others. It’s probably because we don’t want to let them down or have them think poorly of us. If we didn’t come through, we’d probably feel a bit guilty, too.
What about making commitments to yourself? What goals are you going to commit to?
Making a commitment to achieve a goal, big or small, is the same as making a commitment to someone else. It’s an agreement you make with yourself. But now, there’s no one to disappoint but yourself.
To what are you going to commit yourself?
Staying committed to achieving your goals, especially in the face of adversity, can be difficult. It’s sometimes easier to just let ourselves down. There’s a sense of obligation when we make a commitment to someone else. We should have that same sense of obligation to ourselves.
Making a commitment to achieving a goal may mean giving up something else. Maybe you don’t go out with your friends as often or spend as much time with your family as you’d like. Or you don’t join all the clubs you’re interested in, or play on a sports team. That’s just the way it is.
No excuses. Excuses are giving up before you even begin. Keep your goals in sight and commit to them—and to yourself—no matter what.
What are you committed to?
My Commitment to Myself
Put your goals on paper. Here’s an example. It’s up to you to commit to it!
Today, [DATE], I am making a commitment to myself to [GOAL]. I will stay focused and everyday I will do something, big or small, to help me achieve my goal. I will continue even when it seems like it won’t happen or others say I can’t. I will not give up.
My goal is to [GOAL] and I am committed to achieving it!
