I can relate to telling myself I need to exercise and not listening to me. (I love that line.) Great message and great comparisons with the advise for physical and spiritual exercise.

How true, how true! I enjoyed this very much.

Good lessons here - I think we call all relate to this, whether we are out of shape physically or spiritually!

As others have said, this is a great lesson. I also love the word "spasmodic." I didn't know it was a word before, but I like it! lol Great job.
You have just written about me! I can totally relate to this. Good message, and nicely written, too.

Nice writing, and a very apt lesson. Thanks for sharing it with us!
My favorite line, "But, I’m not all bad. Being the good wife that I am, I stay at home and rest for him while he’s trudging. It’s a hard job, but somebody’s got to do it."
The struggle to exercise is a mental battle. I liked your humor. But, if I was you, I would go walking with that man of yours. That would be a great time talking and bonding. Having someone to walk with makes it worthwhile.
Nice job.

I liked this comparison: “Talking about living for God is like talking about exercising…” You did a good job of using the topic to share a valid message, especially the point about consistency. One suggestion would be to rewrite the references to the “natural” or “spiritual man.” I thought they took away from your own voice and seemed “cliché.” What I enjoyed most was the casual tone of this piece. The title was catchy too. Overall, good job!

It's always entertaining to see how different writers can go in so many different directions around one topic. You and I sound as if we are on the same wavelength. Thank you for taking time to leave a comment on my story. I appreciate it!
You make solid comments to support the truth that spiritual health is most important. But,

I’m not all bad. Being the good wife that I am, I stay at home and rest for him while he’s trudging. It’s a hard job, but somebody’s got to do it. (This is funny)

Great job.

Thank you for commenting on my article "Stitches of Evil." I appreciate your feedback.

So true! This spoke to me very deeply. I think all of us can realte to this as we maybe don't exercise as much as we should,whether spiritually,physcially, emotionally or time wise with loved ones or witnessing,etc. Great choice of words and humor to top this off.;0) Good job! Thank you for sharing this. (Also thank you for the fdbk on my challenge entry.):0)
