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 10

Well, this stinks. Matt is working late again no work out for him again. Nothing is stopping me though. I just finished Shoulders & Arms and Ab Ripper X. I also did 15 (measly) minutes on the elliptical this morning and burned 200 calories there. I planned to at least 30-45 minutes on it...but man, I was just too pooped. As Tony Horton (the host of P90X says) "Give it your best and forget the rest" and that is what I did. Anyhow, diet has been royally screwed up today as I ended up running all over town looking for Mother's Day gifts. It just dawned on me this afternoon that Mother's Day is THIS Sunday...and I hadn't bought (or mailed out) anything yet. In my rush out the door, I just grabbed a protien bar and a bottle of water. That was good for a bit...but 3 hours later, I was hungry again.
Anyway...Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast: eggwhite scramble with FF mozerella cheese, 2 turkey bacon, bowl of fresh fruit, skim milk.
(Matt had the same)

Snack at lunchtime: Protien bar

Lunch at snacktime: Chick-fil-a Chargrilled Chicken salad with NO croutons. I lightly dabbed my fork into Ranch dressing every so often but I didn't put any dressing on the salad. Hooray! I did eat ONE of Grant's waffle fries. It was SOOOOOOOOOOO good! Of course, as usual, Grant decided he didn't want his I QUICKLY grabbed them up and threw them in the trash before the evil me came out and overtook the good me! ha ha

Dinner: Went to my moms. She had made spagetti w/ italian sausage meatballs and salad. I ate a bowl of salad (only lettuce and tomato) with spagetti sauce over it. Weird sounding, I know....but it was REALLY good. Kind of like a taco salad---except I guess you'd call it a spagetti salad...?? Anyway, I have NO idea if that was ok for my "diet" or not...but I figured I didn't eat any pasta or bread so it couldn't be tooooo bad, right??? it's 7:58 pm. I rented 2 movies today from RedBox. Alvin and the Chipmunks for the kids...and P.S. I Love You for me. I am fixin to put the kids in bed with their movie and then curl up on the couch and watch mine. I want something sweet SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad. Like...I can feel my mouth watering just thinking about something chocolate! I think I might eat one of my sugar-free fat-free chocolate puddings. I'm sure that's not got anything nutritional in it...but hey...I am a girl. Girls NEED chocolate. Period. (especially when they're on their period! ha ha)

Tomorrow is a big day. Yoga (yuk---my least favorite) plus I will go to the gym for my regular classes. (core/cardio) If I can drop 4 pounds this week like I did last week I will be in the 13_'s which would be a DREAM COME TRUE! I don't really expect it though. I know it will come in time. Anyway, just fantasizing...
Okay..I'm off to waste a couple of hours on the couch...just me and my puddin cup...and my blanket. Ahhhhh........I feel guilty already!

Girl, I can't believe that you still don't' LOVE Yoga! I went to my class last night, and..AHHH It was divine!!! I could literally feel the stress releasing from my body, and by the time I was finished, my muscles were shaking, I was sweating like a pig, my mind was clear, and the stress was gone. I felt GREAT! That is one thing I truly look forward to every week. I love it! :)

WOW girlfriend, you did GOOD on your diet! I'm so proud to see that will-power coming out in you. That just goes to show how much you want this! You go girl!!!
