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.

One week...down the drain

Well, such is life I guess. This week will have to be counted as a "loss" as far as P90X goes. Starting Tuesday night and up until this afternoon, Matt and I have both been miserably sick. Really, through the middle of the day (as long as we kept popping Ibuprofen), we felt alright....but come early evening--all through the night--and early morning, neither of us could hardly swallow, talk with out coughing and our heads have been pounding. Finally this morning, enough was enough, I drug out our medicine box and fished around for some antibiotics. Sure enough, I found a full bottle of Penicillin and a 3/4 way full bottle of Keflex. Since Matt's allergic to the "cillins" I am taking that, and he's taking the Keflex. We stayed in bed until 1 pm today!!!!! and then got up and both of us felt much, much better than we had! (hooray!) so we loaded up the boat, our new 2-man tube and an ice chest full of food and headed off to the lake for some fun. Our "fun" was off to a rough start...(which you can read about in more detail on my other blog) but by 5 pm...we were finally in the water and going.
Anyway, I actually did get in four workouts this week (since Sunday) but since Matt only felt good enough to do one..we have decided to just take this whole week "out" and start again with Week 1 of Phase 3 on Monday. I think by then, we should be feeling much better, maybe totally better and ready to really give it all we've got. Talk to you on Monday!!

It's like you told me early on Jen, "Life Happens" even during P90X. We just have to take it as it comes. IT's not always the perfect 90 days, because life tends to bring surprises. It's no big deal if our 90 days takes 120 days or more. The point is, to make a change for life...

Glad your feeling better...
