Take Every Thought Captive:
Jesus tells the parable of counting the cost of building a tower. In summary, Jesus asks his disciples, if they want to build a tower, will he first not sit down and estimate the cost to build it so that he has enough to finish it? For if he lays the foundation and cannot finish, he will be ridiculed (Luke 14:28). He is stressing the importance of counting the cost of giving up self to be his disciple and follow Him. The same is true with any endeavor in life. We must sit down and count the cost to completion.
This might sound daunting, but I think too often people just want to get started and they fail to plan. "Failure to plan is like planning to fail." Changing your physical fitness is not merely about exercise. You must consider your sleep, your nutrition, your company (community / counsel), and probably most important and most underrated, your schedule. Your physical fitness does not fit in a time slot. It is woven into every thought, every decision, and every action. The world is waging a war against our bodies - the busyness, distractions, quick unhealthy food, and overindulgence of the world. Believers, " ... we take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:5
Tackle your physical fitness like a warrior defending its temple.
