CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Explained the ongoing chaos in my life.  For the last month or two, more and more responsibilities and obstacles have been added and I have been poorly managing them.  I am working on controlling the items I can, taking the time to decompress and be the father and husband I want to be.  Control the Chaos.

Laissez les bons temps rouler

THE SCENE: Misting, mid 40s, with an overcast QIC
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

SSH x 20 or so (waiting on you Cosmo!); 5 burpees OYO, run 2 laps around AO parking lot to let QIC figure out what we’re going to do. End at the CMU pile because, well CMUesday.
THA-THANG:
While listening to some New Orleans Mardi Gras inspired music, we’re gonna have a parade.  Everybody has to contribute a float to the parade.  Whenever you hear Louis Armstrong’s “Hello Dolly,”  stop what you’re doing, hit your 6 and do Hello Dollies for the length of the song.

  • First float by Swimmies and Crablegs:  Doras with your battle buddy. Grab a CMU and do a certain amount of curls, overhead presses, rows, goblet squats (I can’t really remember how many.  Maybe 100 total each?), while your partner runs to the other side of parking lot and back John Cusack style (CMU held over your head the whole time).  Shoulders are appropriately burning at this point.
  • Next float sponsored by Gibbler and Baby Boomer?  Head to the Pav-a-lon with CMU for 7s CMU Merkins and leg thrusts (on CMU). Wall sit with your CMU while waiting on the 6.
  • So, the third float was maybe Rainbow or Hot Tub’s?:  More Doras.  One partner runs a lap around building with CMU while the other one does kettle bell swings.  4 laps for each partner.
  • Next float:  Hands comes down St. Charles with a bunch of shoulder shrugs. and CMU arm raises.  Shoulders now feel like they’re going to simply let go of the arms and let them fall off.
  • Next float:  Code Brown’s float made of rocks.  Grab two rocks from next to the building for two rounds of Tie Fighters (BAC while in lunge position- forward and back); then overhead claps.  At this point, shoulders go from painful to just numb.
  • Next float:  Snitch brings it home with 11s- Box Jumps and dips (more shoulders!!)
  • That’s the end of the float, so we return CMUs and circle up.

MARY:
No Mary, but Satchmo did serenade us with “Hello Dolly” twice during the workout, so we got 2 doses.  And I was wrong about the time.  The song lasted 2:24, so that’s a total of 4:48 of straight Hello Dollies.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Lent is upon us.  Don’t just pick something to give up that is “bad” for us.  Let’s pick something that is a true sacrifice.  When we feel its absence, search for the presence of God.  There’s nothing we can’t replace with God’s love and presence.

What flag will you raise this week?

MOLESKIN:

  • What flag will you raise this week? Spoiler Alert – things aren’t going to go your way 100% of the time this week. If they do, that is awesome as well. However, the question has to be asked: “What flag will you raise this week when that happens?” A flag of gratitude and glory and blessing? What flag are you unconsciously raising as well?
  • Think about what flags you raise this week – when the going is good and the going is rough. Does the flag you raise make others want to help raise it with you? Is the flag you raise life-giving? Take the high ground this week – and raise the flag of honor and duty and courage and prayer and humility – in the spheres of influence that God has uniquely placed you in.
  • This is just the huddle – the game is out there. Go take the high ground.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
