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 8

We decided to just wait until after work today to do our work out. It's hard to wake up at 4:45 am and do an hour and fifteen minutes of hard work out and then still have to face the day (with arms that will barely move).
We ate pretty good today, although I wish we hadn't had our "dessert". That's another one of those bad habits I have..always thinking we have to have something sweet after every meal, especially dinner.
So, here was our menu today:

Breakfast:
(one last time! ha ha) Eggwhite scramble with turkey sausage and a sprinkle of FF cheese, fresh strawberries, skim milk

Lunch:
Matt - Grilled chicken salad
Me - Left overs from yesterdays Beef & Broccoli stir-fry

Snack: String cheese, dried fruit, protien bar

Dinner: Grilled turkey burger, zucchini fries, fresh veggies with light ranch.
Dessert: Sugar-Free jello with fruit & light cool whip

Matt stopped by GNC today on the way home from work and picked us up some Ultra Mega Gold vitamins. He's been taking them for a while, but I never take vitamins, so I am excited to start and hopefully feel a little more energetic.
Also, we decided to order the "Recovery Drink Formula" that goes along with the P90X system. It is supposed to help with muscle soreness and re-building. That should be here in the next day or two and I'm excited to try that also.
Today's work out was Chest & Back and the Ab Ripper X video and my arms are so sore I could barely lift them to get stuff off the top shelf in my pantry tonight! I'm sure that by tomorrow or Wednesday, I'll REALLY be feeling it. I've never been so sore in my lats!
So tomorrow I am planning on going to my regular classes at the gym (Core, weights, and cardio) and then we will do our P90X dvd when Matt gets home from work tomorrow night. It's Plyometrics again....ick! Hopefully this time I will be more up for it since it will be later in the day. We'll see. Later gator!!

P.S. Your hillbilly comment cracked me up! We should definitely compare one day -
WV hillbilly vs. OK hillbilly. Except there are no actual 'hills' there, right?
