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 30

I have a feeling I am not getting enough rest. Now that we've been doing our workouts in the evenings (around 9 pm) and then I have to take a shower after that and dry my hair...it's usually 11 before I get in bed and at least midnight (sometimes ONE!!!) before I finally put down my book/turn off the TV and fall asleep. Then it's up at about 6:20 to fix Matt's breakfast and lunch and do my work (for the dr. office). Anyway, this morning after I had finished all that, I went and laid back down beside Brooklyn (who was still asleep) and thought I'd take a little nap. HA! I slept until 10 AM! (it was probably around 8 when I laid down) I could NOT believe I slept that long and that sound. Even when I woke up at 10, I felt like I could have fallen right back asleep! Anyway, my goal for this next week is to get to sleep earlier. No later than 11:30. That's my goal for now. Then the next week maybe I'll make it 11 and eventually, I would love to be getting to sleep around 10--but we'll see. That IS my only ME time of the whole day.

Anyhow, my eating today was all screwed up since I didn't even have my first meal until 10:30 a.m.!
Here's the menu:
Breakfast:
Matt: Kashi Go Lean oatmeal, skim milk, banana
Me: Eggwhite scramble with FF cheddar cheese, 2 turkey bacon, skim milk and 1 of my blueberry muffins.

Lunch/Dinner (4:30 pm) : Chick fil a chicken sandwich & fruit cup.

Snack (7 pm): Blueberry muffin

Snack (10:30 p.m.-after Yoga X): 1 slice light whole wheat toast with 100% natural strawberry preserves.

Remember Jen it's a three point deal: Good Workouts, Good Eating and Good Sleep, and when one lacks then its not a productive as it could be. Wow! I could never keep the schedule you keep, I'd like to say it's because I'm older but I've always been a morning person and I just can't stay up a night. It's probably all what you get use to, and habit. With the schedule you keep and the time you get up, I do hope you get your habit back to sleep at 10:00pm. Ü You guys are doing great. Keep it up!
