SO YOU WANT TO DIP YOUR BACK LEG, AND THEN COME BACK UP. AND THEN YOU WANT TO STEP OUT, THEN YOU WOULD DIP, WITH THE BACK KNEE JOINT, AND THEN YOU WOULD COME BACK UP.

AND I WILL LET YOU IN ON THE SECRET.>>IT WOULD BE FOR MAYONNAISE AND YOU DO NOT USE MAYONNAISE AND WE WILL USE THESE AVOCADOS. AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING ELSE THAT WE DID NOT SPEAK ABOUT, THE AV’OCADO OR THE AVOCADO, THEY HAVE GOT OVER 20 MINERALS AND VITAMINS INSIDE OF THEM BUT THEY TRULY WOULD BE SO HEALTHY, AND I FORGOT WHAT I WAS DOING OVER HERE.

AND HE GIVES THEM THANKS FOR THEIR LOYALTY, HOW GOOD THEY HAVE BEEN, IT WOULD BE A LOVE LETTER AND A LETTER OF THANKSGIVING FOR THEIR FAITHFULNESS. AND YOU KNOW AND WILL GET TO THOSE THINGS IN A MOMENT, WE WILL BE DOING ANOTHER ROUND AND WE COULD TALK ABOUT THAT SOME MORE, BUT THIS WOULD BE A PHENOMENAL SCRIPTURE AND I WOULD LIKE TO MAYBE PUT YOUR NAME IN THE SCRIPTURE, AND WE COULD PUT THE NAME OF YOUR CITY OR THE NAME OF YOUR CHURCH OR THE NAME AND WHATEVER THAT MIGHT BE, AND WHERE HE MIGHT NOT SAY.>>THAT WE COULD WITH THIS WAY, AND BE WITH THANK GOD FOR ALL OF YOU, THE CTN AUDIENCE AND WE WOULD PRAY FOR YOU CONSTANTLY.

STEP OUT A LITTLE BIT FURTHER, AND SHE DOES NEED THE OVERHAUL HEAD TO TOE. YOU WOULD BE FROM YOUR PART AND THE MORE YOU MOVE ABOUT, SO THE BETTER YOU WOULD WORK THE CORE, AND IF WE STOOD BACK TO BACK, YOU COULD REACH OVER HERE, AND WE WANT TO GET A LITTLE BIT AWAY. AND THIS IS WHAT WE WILL BE DOING AND YOU WILL BE TWISTING, AND THEN YOU WANT TO GO HAND OVER HAND.>>AND THIS IS WHY WE ARE USING THE TENNIS BALL, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE A TENNIS BALL, BUT THAT WOULD HELP YOU.>>AND THAT WOULD HELP YOU, AND MAYBE YOU DO NOT HAVE A TENNIS BALL. YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING.>>OH.>>AND GO NICE AND SLOW YOU DO NOT WANT TO GO TOO FAST WOULD GO NICE AND SLOW, AND YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO DO THE GOOD STRETCH, AND NOW WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THIS, YOU WOULD BE WORKING THE SHOULDERS, WORKING THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE SHOULDERS, THE TORSO, THE TWISTING.>>I AM SORRY I WANT TO PULL DOWN MY SHIRT.>>AND I DO LOVE AND I LOVE THAT SCRIPTURE, FIRST THESSALONIANS, WE ARE GETTING TO THIS AND WE DID MAYBE 2-5, AND WE WILL BE GOING MAYBE 6-8.>>I JUST FOUND OUT, I WAS DOING THE WRONG THING AND WHEN YOU TO DO THIS DO NOT DO WHAT I WAS DOING AND TURN YOUR FOOT BUT YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR FEET STRAIGHT.>>AND YES, USE THE TORSO TO TWIST.>>I WAS DOING THAT WRONG, SO.>>ALL RIGHT I AM SO GLAD YOU POINTED THAT OUT.>>I CERTAINLY WAS.>>OH. OH. LAUGHTER>>AND YOU AND I WAS WASTING THE LAST FEW SECONDS BUT ALL RIGHT LET ME GO BACK TO THE KITCHEN AND WE HAVE GIVEN YOU SOME OF THE INGREDIENTS BUT WHAT WE MAKING?>>OKAY, WE WOULD BE MAKING A SALMON SALAD WITH THE AVOCADO, AND ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS AND THIS WOULD BE SUCH AN EASY MEAL. AND WE DO THIS AT LUNCH A LOT, AND INSTEAD MAYBE I HAVE NOT HAD THE SALMON THAT WE WOULD HAVE THE LEFTOVERS, AND MAYBE WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH, YOU DO NOT HAVE A SLAB TO CUT IT UP, AND I WILL USE THE WILD CAUGHT SALMON, THE PINK.>>AND THEN I WOULD GET THIS OUT OF THE PACKAGE AND WHAT WOULD BE DO NOW?>>SOME AVOCADO>>SALMON.>>TOMATO.>>AND WE HAVE TOMATO.

AND SO, AND THE IMPORTANT THING WOULD BE THE LIMITED. AND IF YOU WOULD MAKE THIS AHEAD OF TIME AND WHEN YOU WOULD PUT THE LIMIT ON THIS, IT WOULD HELP YOU TO TASTE THE SALMON AND MAYBE YOU NOT A BIG SALMON PERSON, AND THE OTHER THING WOULD BE, IT WOULD KEEP THE AVOCADO FROM CHANGING COLORS AND TURNING. AND THE LIMIT WOULD BE SO GREAT FOR THAT AND THE OTHER WOULD BE SO GOOD. ALL RIGHT THIS WOULD BE SO NICE AND THICK.>>AND DO YOU SEE HOW THAT LOOKS?>>OVERLAPPING CONVERSATION.>>AND WE COULD PUT THE WHOLE THING TOGETHER>>IT IS ALL ABOUT THE PRESENTATION WE HAVE GOT ANOTHER EXERCISE ROUTE, AND NOW WE HAVE GOT THE INGREDIENTS READY FOR THE SALMON SALAD I WILL GET TO THAT IN A MOMENT, AND I THINK WERE GOING TO NEED ONE BALL AND WE WOULD BE OKAY, WE’LL GO BACK TO BACK, TODAY WILL BE DOING AN EASY ROUTE, BECAUSE THIS WILL BE SOME SIMILAR EXERCISES, THIS WOULD BE BACK TO BACK AND WE WANT TO REACH WITH BOTH OF OUR HANDS OVERHEAD, AND YOU WANT TO TWIST JUST A LITTLE BIT.>>AND WE FORGOT THE TWISTING.>REACH OVER YOUR HEAD, TWIST A LITTLE BIT BUT WITH BOTH OF YOUR ARMS THAT YOU WANT TO GET YOUR SHOULDERS NICE AND LOOSE AND FLEXIBLE AND YOU WANT TO WORK YOUR ABDOMEN AND WORKING THE OBLIQUES, AND WITH THE BACK BINS, AND THEN YOU WANT TO GO WAY OUT HERE, AND CAN YOU REACH THAT?

BUT YOU ALSO COOK WITH ME TOGETHER.>>MUSIC>>ALL RIGHT WHERE ARE WE IN TIME?>>WE GOT ABOUT 15 SECONDS OR SO.>>ALL RIGHT. THIS IS GREAT. AND I WANT TO TALK>>AND IT LOOKS LIKE AN EASY WORKOUT BUT IT IS NOW, WHEN YOU WOULD DO YOUR THIGHS, AND THE STOMACH, AND YOU WOULD BE WORKING THIS FOR A FEW MORE ROUNDS. ALL RIGHT THAT WOULD BE IT ALREADY GOOD JOB.>>LAUGHTER>>ALL RIGHT NOW LET ME GET BACK TO THAT SCRIPTURE, 1ST THESSALONIANS OUT WE WANTED TO GO A LITTLE FURTHER ALONG, AND WE WANTED TO GO TO VERSE SIX NOW AND WE WANTED TO PICK IT UP AT VERSE SIX.>>SO YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE MESSAGE WITH JOY FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT AND IN SPITE OF THE SEVERE SUFFERING THAT THIS BROUGHT YOU, BUT IN THIS WAY, YOU HAVE IMITATED US AND THE LORD. AS A RESULT YOU HAVE BECOME AN EXAMPLE TO ALL OF THE BELIEVERS AND GREECE AND THROUGHOUT MACEDONIA AND, ACHEA, AND NOW THE WORD OF THE IS RINGING OUT FROM YOU, AND THE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE AND EVEN BEYOND MACEDONIA AND ACHEA, FOREVER WE WOULD GO AND WE WOULD FIND THE PEOPLE TELLING US MORE FAITH IN GOD, WE DON’T NEED TO TELL THEM ABOUT THIS FOR THEY WOULD KEEP TALKING ABOUT THE WONDERFUL WELCOME THAT YOU GAVE US AND HOW YOU TURNED AWAY FROM THE IDOLS TO SERVE THE LIVING AND THE TRUE GOD.>>I LOVE THAT ABOUT THE IDOLS, SO YOU THINK ABOUT IT NOW, AND HE WOULD BE PREACHING TO THE GREEKS, THE GENTILES, AND THE JEWS. SO, AND OF COURSE THE GENTILES, THEY WERE HAVING MANY IDOLS, SO HE WAS PREACHING, AND HE SAYS I AM SO PROUD OF YOU GUYS THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN UP ALL OF THE IDOLS, AND YOU’VE GIVEN UP ALL OF THE ASTROLOGY AND YOU HAVE GIVEN UP ALL OF THE FALSE GODS.>>FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 17, AND HE IS REFERRING TO THIS AS HE WOULD GO THROUGH THE CITY, AND HE SEES ALL OF THE IDOLS AND THE UNKNOWN GODS IN ATHENS.>>AND HE SEES A STATUTE THE UNKNOWN GOD, THEN PAUL SAYS, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE UNKNOWN GOD, AND HE IS THE ONE TRUE LIVING GOD, THAT I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT. AND THAT WOULD BE FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS AND YOU WANT TO STUDY THAT IN CHAPTER 17. ALL RIGHT, THE LAST STANDING STOMACH ROUTE OVER TO BE DOING THE SAME THING BACK TO BACK AROUND BE TWISTING SIDEWAYS, AND THIS WOULD BE THE LAST ON THE GROUND AND WE WOODWORKING THE CALVES AND THE THIGHS, AND NOW WERE REALLY GETTING A GOOD STOMACH WORKOUT. AND THEN, WERE GOING TO BE GOING INTO THE KITCHEN.>>AND YOU NEED TO DO THIS. AND THIS WOULD BE FOR THE BODY>>AND CAN YOU SKATE? AND YOU KNOW YOU COULD DO THESE TOGETHER. SO DO THEM SLOWLY. AND CAN YOU SPOT AND CAN YOU REACH? ALL RIGHT THERE YOU GO.>>AND YOU WOULD PICK A SPOT. AND YOU MIGHT GO SEVERAL PLACES SO YES. I HAVE HAD TO DO THAT.>>ALL RIGHT THIS WOULD BE SO GOOD, THIS WOULD BE WORKING THE STOMACH, AND THE OBLIQUES, SO IT MIGHT NOT LOOK LIKE IT, SO DO US A FAVOR, AND GET UP OFF THE COUCH.>>LAUGHTER>>AND YOU NEED TO TRY THIS AND MAYBE YOU DO NOT HAVE A PARTNER, YOU COULD STAND UP AGAINST THE WALL AND TOUCH THE WALL AND TWIST TO THE OTHER SIDE.>>I AM GOING TO BE SLOWING THIS DOWN. SO THAT I COULD ACTUALLY GET A GOOD STRETCH, SO THIS WOULD NOT BE THAT WERE JUST TRYING TO DO THIS, BUT WE ARE TRYING TO GET A GOOD TURN IN THAT STRETCH.>>AND THIS IS WHAT WE SAID EARLIER, THE FURTHER AWAY YOU WOULD BE, YOU COULD BE ABLE TO STRETCH.>>AND YOU COULD GUESS, BUT WHEN YOU WOULD HOLD THIS, AND YOU WOULD GET A BETTER…>>AND MAYBE WE WOULD FEEL LIKE WERE A LITTLE FARTHER AWAY.>>AND MAYBE YOU WOULD GO FURTHER; YOU WOULD NOT BE SO DIZZY. AND THIS WOULD BE FOR ME; I WAS SLOWING DOWN OUR PURPOSE.>>AND I WANTED TO GO BACK TO THE SCRIPTURE, AND TALKING ABOUT THE IDOLS,>>OKAY.>>AND AS WE SAID, THE GENTILES HAD MANY IDOLS BUT EVEN THE JEWS HAD IDOLS, THEIR IDOL MIGHT HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW THE SADDUCEES AND THE PHARISEES, THEY HAD THEIR IDOLS, IT WAS THE LAW, AND THAT YOU COULD ONLY TAKE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF STEPS ON THE SABBATH DAY. AND YOU KNOW, YOU COULD NOT RESCUE YOUR ANIMAL OUT OF A PIT ON THE SABBATH. SO YOU KNOW THEY HAD THE LAWS THAT WOULD BECOME THEIR IDOLS, AND I SAY, AND I LOVE WHAT PAUL SAYS, AND THAT HE SAYS, IT IS THE TRUE AND THE LIVING GOD. ALL RIGHT NOW WE HAVE GOT A LITTLE BIT LEFT, AND WE GOT WANT TO GO TOO EARLY. IT WOULD BE THE TRUE LIVING GOD AND ALL OF THE OTHER GODS, AND THE FALSE IDOLS, AND A STATUTE WOULD BE DEAD. IT WOULD BE JUST BRONZE AND WHATEVER, HE WOULD BE SPEAKING ABOUT THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD THAT WE WORSHIP. AND WE WANT TO PUT OUR INGREDIENTS TOGETHER.>>SO, AND THE INGREDIENTS AGAIN WOULD BE SOME LETTUCE, AND I WANT TO WIPE MY HANDS REALLY QUICKLY.>>ALL RIGHT AND HAVE YOUR HANDS ON THE TENNIS BALL AND BOUNCING THAT AROUND.>>ALL RIGHT I WANT THIS TO BE CLEAN, AND THIS WOULD BE SO GROSS. ALL RIGHT, SO THE INGREDIENTS WOULD BE THE LETTUCE, AND I WOULD BE USING THE BIBB LETTUCE AND WE DO NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE LIKE ICEBERG LETTUCE, BE LIKE THE BIBB LETTUCE, JUST BECAUSE, THERE WOULD BE NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE AT ALL, AND ICEBERG LETTUCE. AND THEN, I WILL CUT, BUT BE CUTTING IT UP AND IF I COULD BAR YOUR NIGHT.>>ALL RIGHT AND PLAYING IT OUT>>ALL RIGHT WE HAVE 25 SECONDS LEFT. AND THIS WOULD BE A SPEEDING READING IT MAKES.>>SO YOU WOULD MIX UP, YOU WOULD TAKE THE SALMON AND THE AVOCADO, THIS WOULD BE A REPLACEMENT FOR THE NUTRIENTS, WE DO NOT USE MAYONNAISE, AND WE USE THE AVOCADO AND THIS WOULD NOT LOOK SO FABULOUS JUST YET, HOWEVER YOU WOULD DICE UP THE TOMATOES AND I WANT TO CUT IT UP A LITTLE BIT MORE, BUT FOR MAYBE JUST A QUICK THING, IT WOULD BE BASICALLY, AND THIS WOULD BE SO SIMPLE AND THAT WOULD BE TAKING THE AVOCADO, THE SALMON I WILL BE PUTTING THAT IN THE MIDDLE HERE, I WANT TO SHOW YOU THE NEXT EXERCISE ROUND, I WILL BE CONTINUING TO DO THIS, IT WOULD BE SO SIMPLE, THIS WOULD BE A TRICEPS EXTENSION, TO BE WANT YOU TO HOLD YOUR TENNIS BALL, YOU WANT TO POINT YOUR ELBOWS TO THE CEILING AND THEN PUT IT UP, AND PUT THAT BEHIND YOUR NECK AND THEN GO UP WITH THE OTHER ARM, THAT WOULD BE LIKE A TRICEPS PRESS, AND THIS WOULD BE WHERE YOU WOULD PASS THE BALL BEHIND YOUR NECK, AND THEN YOU WANT TO ACT LIKE YOU CAN THROW IT AGAINST THE CEILING. ALL RIGHT, AND THEN YOU COULD THROW IT AND CATCH IT. AND MAYBE NOT IN THE KITCHEN.>>LAUGHTER>>>>AND DO NOT THROW THIS IN THE KITCHEN.>>AND THE TRICEPS EXTENSION AND THIS WOULD BE WHAT LORI DOES, AS SHE WOULD CONTINUE TO MAKE OUR LUNCH.>>YES, MAKING THE LUNCH.>>ALL RIGHT YOU WOULD PUT EVERYTHING IN HERE AND YOU MIGHT TAKE YOUR COUP COMRADE PUT THE CUCUMBER IN HERE, AND THEN YOU COULD MAYBE GET SOME HEALTHY CHIPS. AND YOU COULD GET A DIP.>>YOU COULD USE SOME BREAD. I WOULD PUT SOME LIMITED, AND MAYBE PUT A LITTLE BIT OF LEMON OVER THIS, JUST BECAUSE, IT WOULD TAKE OUT THIS FLAVOR OF THE FISH. AND THIS WOULD MAKE THE AVOCADO TASTE SO MUCH BETTER.>>AND WE HAVE DONE THE AVOCADO, BUT THAT WOULD BE SO EASY AND YOU SEE THAT WE CUT IT UP, BUT WE CAN TAKE A FOUR, AND MASH IT UP AND THAT WOULD BE SO SIMPLE AND EASY TO MATCH IT OUT.>>AND THEN YOU KNOW, THAT IS WHAT I DO, BUT I CHEATED TODAY, BECAUSE YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHAT WOULD BE IN THE AVOCADO, AND MAYBE IT WOULD BE OKAY. AND YOU DO NOT KNOW. I DID NOT WANT TO SHOW YOU THE BOOK CALL THAT HAD SO MUCH THINGS GOING ON.>>WE HAD A GOOD ONE TODAY. THAT WOULD BE A GOOD ONE.>>AND WE USE IT FRESH, THAT WOULD BE THE KEY AND IF YOU RIPEN THEM THE WAY THAT WE DO THIS, AND THEN YOU WIND UP USUALLY WITH A VERY GOOD AVOCADO. AND WE USE A FEW EXTRA SLICES SO YOU COULD USE, AND YOU COULD USE THE CHIPS, OR MAYBE YOU COULD USE THE CUCUMBER AND THE CHIPS.>>AND THIS WOULD BE SUCH A NICE PRESENTATION, AND THIS COULD BE SO GOOD WHEREVER, YOU COULD PUT THE CUCUMBERS ON THE EDGE, WITH THE CUTS. THIS WOULD BE SO NICELY DONE. AND WE ARE NOT EXERCISING AT ALL. AND I THINK THAT WERE STALLING.>>LAUGHTER>>I REALIZED WHERE I WAS GOING.>>AND YOU HAVE BEEN SITTING THE ENTIRE ROUTE AND THAT WOULD BE ALL THE TIME THAT WE HAVE.>>SO TODAY, AND WE SPOKE ABOUT MAKING A REALLY HEALTHY SALAD, THAT WOULD BE SUCH A GREAT LUNCH OR DINNER, AND YOU COULD MAKE IT BEFORE HAD, AND WE SPOKE ABOUT FIRST THESSALONIANS AND.>>WE COULD SPEND HOURS ON THAT. THAT WAS A GREAT SCRIPTURE>>OF THE TESTIMONIES THAT THEY HAD, AND WHAT WAS THE ALLIGATOR PEAR?>>AND NOW YOU KNOW WHAT THE ALLIGATOR PEAR WOULD BE, AND YOU COULD MAKE IT RIGHT AND THIS WOULD BE RIGHT IN YOUR MEAL.>>AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART, THERE WOULD BE A REAL TESTIMONY HERE AND APOLLOS WAS THANKING GOD FOR THE TESTIMONY OF THE PEOPLE AND THE CHURCH THAT WAS JUST BEGINNING AND THEY WERE BEING A GREAT WITNESS OF WHO GOD WAS, AND THEY WERE THE IMITATORS OF GOD. SO, AS AN IMITATOR OF GOD, AND MAYBE AS A CHILD OF GOD OUR TESTIMONY WOULD BE SO IMPORTANT AND YOU SHOULD TESTIMONY THAT COULD REACH PEOPLE IF YOU DON’T HAVE ONE, GOD WILL GIVE YOU ONE. AND IT WOULD BE SO SIMPLE YOU WOULD OPEN UP YOUR HEART AND ASK THE LORD TO COME TO YOUR HEART. AND YOU CAN SAY DEAR LORD JESUS, TO MY HEART, FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS, AND THANK YOU THAT YOU DIED UPON THE CROSS FOR ME, AND YOU SHED YOUR BLOOD FOR ME AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS AMEN. USE YOUR TESTIMONY>>ALWAYS USE YOUR TESTIMONY AND WE ALWAYS DO PRAY FOR YOU, AS WE PRAY, WE WOULD GO FOR THIRD JOHN ONE, TWO, AND BELOVED I WOULD PRAY THAT IN ALL RESPECTS, THAT WOULD BE IN ALL RESPECTS, YOU WOULD PROSPER AND BE IN GOOD HEALTH JUST AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.>>WE LOVE YOU GUYS
