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 17 I mentioned before, we did our work out (Cardio X) this morning before work (at 5 am). We decided to hold off on ARX and do it tonight. Then at 9:45 am I went to a core/cardio class at my gym and worked EXTRA hard there. After that it was home to do a million other things before I cooked dinner, gave the kids a bath, put them to bed and then did ARX. (ab ripper x). By myself. Couldn't talk (or shame) Matt into it for anything. That's okay, I like having a one-up on him anyway. Let him be a slacker...we'll see who has the six pack come summer!! ha ha ha
Since I was feeling SO extremely zonked today, I did up my calories some and I did start feeling a bit better. I just pretty much ate every couple of hours and drank lots of water. I also decided to drink the P90X recovery drink today (despite the extra calories) to see if that might help my energy level.
Here's what we had today:

What's new? egg-white scrambles with FF mozerralla cheese, turkey bacon, strawberries and recovery drink.
(yes Kate...definitely getting tired of it...but that's about all we can have for b-fast during this phase 1---only a week and a half left till we get to move onto phase 2 eating! YAY!)

Snack: Protien bar, banana, water

Matt: Left over teriyaki chicken/sprouts
Me: Protein smoothie and 1 slice light whole wheat toast with 100% fruit natural preserves.
(I admit, I did take a bite of Grant's happymeal hamburger before I tossed it into the trash...and I ate about 5 fries. I swear the kid only gets the dumb meals for the DUMB toy. He hardly eats any of the food! Grrr!)

Matt: pistachios and dried fruit
Me: Stalk of celery with natural peanut butter

Island Pork Tenderloin Salad
I will post recipe just as soon as I have some extra time! It's SOOOOO good!!

Well Jen,

It sounds like your still pushin play and thats great. Most people would have given up already, but you CAN do it. The 90 days are going to pass whether you exercise or not so it just depends on whether or not you choose to look different and feel better in that time or not. YOUR choice and YOURS alone. Your doing well, keep pushing play and don't give up on the food and calories it just takes some personal tweaking to find whats right for you. The important thing, and equally as important as pushing play is to make sure to continue to eat clean that is what will make the difference in the end. So as tempting as it can be stay away from the junk food that is not good fuel, not even a BITE.Your tummy will thank you in the end. Ha,listen to me, I sure hope I can take my own advice when I start on the 26th. Ü

I do think that its great that you admit outloud on your cheats it really helps to keep you accountable and maybe think twice the next time temptation rolls around.

Well I'm off to Las Vegas this weekend, wish me luck and I'll check back in on your progress when I get back.
