Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Day 1

So, today, April 28, 2008 was Day 1 for us on our P90X journey. We had a bit of a rough start this morning as we didn't plan enough time to complete our entire work outs (Back & Shoulders & Ab Ripper) so we had to stop half way and let Matt go to work. We finished the workout tonight before dinner. Wow! Is it normal to be so sore just minutes after you're done? I have a feeling we are gonna be hurtin-somethin-feirce tomorrow!
Our meal plan went great today. It was HORRIBLE yesterday (Sunday) as I spent HOURS looking at the nutriion guide and trying to figure out something I understood and could cook. In the end, this is what we had for today:
Cheese scramble (egg whites, skim milk & fat-free mozerella cheese)
Turkey bacon (3 for Matt, 2 for me)
Strawberries (4 for Matt, 1 for me)
Skim Milk (12 oz. for Matt, 8 oz. for me)

Snack: String cheese & protien shake

Chef Salad (turkey, ham, romaine lettuce, green pepper, tomato, FF mozerella cheese & 2 tbs. low-fat Ranch dressing.

Snack: Protien bar

Baked lemon pepper tilapia; homemade veggie soup (recipe from book), small bowl of veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)

I don't think either of us felt "full" after our dinner...but we were satisfied enough. I guess we have to be not full if our stomachs are ever gonna shrink and get used to less food. It feels weird not having hardly ANY carbs. I guess I eat a LOT more of them than I realized. I'm sure this is going to be great for me since the working out is the easy part for me. It's the eating right that's been holding me back...I think. Anyway, here's hoping tomorrow goes as good as today! (and that we can still move come morning!)

Hooray for you two! Great job! Isn't it great to be doing this together? J and I just started working out together last night and are going to make a real effort to keep doing that every day. Way to go, guys! I'm so proud of you! Keep up the good work.

awesome! I completely ditched carbs too (for lunch anyways) and am replacing sandwiches with salads. Your "before" pic looks pretty good to me, so I'm sure you'll be smokin' hot in 90days :)

Stick to it! You'll be so proud of yourselves in the end. I know you can do it!

Girl your before picture looks awesome and you are so tan. I have had such a hard time getting myself back into a routine of exercising since I had that stupid surgery but I am determined to cause even though I have continued to loose weight I am starting to get flabby and that is just gross. I did however do 20 minutes on my ab machine and walk away the pounds video tonight so I am on the right track it's just sticking with it. Good luck girl!

Hey thanks for your blog it is good to see that I wasn't the only one having problems with the nutrition plan... Not like BLF. I just started P90X this week (I'm on day 2) And after that plyo workout I wanted to die!!! But I really liked looking at your recipes. I think I'll keep checking out what you guys are eating. Thanks
