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 45 --HALF WAY THERE!!!

Wow! I can't believe it--I'm halfway thru my 90 day adventure! This would probably be a good time to take new (middle-of-the-way) pictures and check measurements and weight, huh? Well, it'll have to wait till tomorrow because I'm doing something new...I'm going to be EARLY tonight! It is 10:08 and I'm already laying in bed--that's at least an hour earlier than usual. I know I need the extra rest because I have been having a horrible time staying awake in the mornings when I am trying to work. I fell asleep at my desk about 10 times in one hour this morning!
Anyhow, it's been a busy day with hardly a moments rest. I got up early this morning to work, then it was off to the gym. I did my normal 45 minute core/weights class and then since there was a teacher there that I liked, I stayed for an hour long Zumba class too. When I left the gym, my t-shirt was soaked. From the top of my collar to the hem at the bottom...the only dry spots were on my lower sides!! Whew! After that I went grocery shopping, then home to put stuff away, take a shower, go to post office, library and to get Brooklyn's hair cut. Then home to cook dinner, wash dishes, and then finally around 8:00 I sat down and watched Matt's new "C'Mere Deer" dvd that he got for Father's Day. I think we are going to look into getting me a bow so I can go deer/turkey hunting with him this next year! It's not my top choice of activity...but it's something he really enjoys...and so that makes me want to be a part of it. Plus, who can resist a girl who deer hunts? ha ha
Since I got almost 2 hours of working out in this morning, I opted to skip Plyometrics tonight. I really wanted to do it...but I know I would have struggled through it. I had a hard time even walking up the stairs in our house tonight. I really gave it my all today at the gym and I am just pooped---energy wise.
Eating today was......well, I promise--I tried. I at least fulfilled my goal of not getting too full today. However, I could NOT seem to get satisfied today. I think I ate at least once an hour ALL day long!
Breakfast: Kashi Oatmeal, 1 turkey bacon, water
11:00 am= protein bar
12:00 pm = 5 pistachios, natural apple chips
1:00 pm = 1/2 filet of tilapia, rice & veggies, a small yogurt cup
2:00 pm = apples & raisens 1/2 cup
4:00 pm = 12 pistachios
Dinner: Grilled turkey breast, rice & veggies, salad, zucchini fries
Snack/Dessert: Chocolate protein shake (medium)

Wow! I am tried just reading your schedule of things you did today! Ü

Good for you going to bed early, 20 more days of that and you could consider it a habit Ü

Hunting? Hmmmm I don't know about that. Good for you if you can do it...I just don't think I could.

45 days already? that flew by (for me at least, b/c i haven't been busting my butt like you - ha!)

But seriously, you are doing such an awesome job. Your energy and committment are commendable. I think of you now when I go to make a bad food choice or just get lazy on the couch. I think, "Nope, Jen wouldn't be going at it like this. Keep movin' honey!" You are an inspiration. And thanks for always haring the menus - gives me some great meal ideas.
