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 3

Okay, it hurts to move. But, despite the pain, the people around here still expected me to work and cook and clean and take them here and there. (how rude!) haha
Anyway, we did good and got up right on time this morning and did our work out (Shoulders & Arms). We didn't have time for the Ab Ripper video this morning, so we did that tonight after Matt got home from work.
We had another succesful, albeit screwed up, day with our diet. I forgot to eat (my pre prepared)lunch before I left to go shopping this afternoon...soooo, I had to make due with a protien bar and banana until I could get home and eat the appropriate lunch. Basically I ate my snack for lunch and my lunch for snack. At any rate, I still ate all the right foods today, so I'm happy.
Here was our menu for today:
Breakfast:
Spinach and tomato egg-white omlet with FF mozerrella cheese
Glass of milk with protien powder mixed in

Lunch:
Turkey burger with sprinkle of FF mozerrella cheese on top.

Snacks:
String cheese, protien bar and banana

Dinner:
Spinach & Asiago Chicken sausage
Stir-fry veggies
Salad with romaine lettuce, yellow pepper, green pepper, avacado, tomato, banana pepper, carrots, green onions, spinach leaves, FF mozerralla and light Ranch dressing drizzled on top.

I am really excited about this new way of cooking. My favorite thing: stir-frying without any oils!! Just a little white wine vinegar or soy sauce, even chicken broth will do the trick! and won't add any extra calories!

In other depressing news, I went to Sam\s today to try to get some good foods for us. I found plenty...which was good...until I got to the check out. $184....say WHAT? Turns out eating healthy costs almost twice as much as eating junk food. Fortunately, though, in the long run, we'll get it all back with our impecable health!!

For the first time in my life I can honestly say....I can't WAIT to weigh on Monday and see how much progres I've made!!

Wow! You're doing great! That salad sounds delish!!!
Hang in there girl!
BTW: Isn't it nice not to have to think "what are we going to have for dinner?" since you already know, and have it pre-prepared?!
