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.

Days 15-35

Well....as you can see, I've been "away" for a while. So much has happened in the past 20 days, but since this blog focuses on my weight and health...I will just leave all the details for my other blog and tell YOU guys that over the past three weeks, I have packed back on a few pounds. I weighed in at 140 on Sunday of this week. Very depressing to see that number, but I'm not entirely surprised either. It's been a stressful time and to be completely honest...working out and worrying about nutrition has been the LEAST of my worries. It just didn't rank up there in priority...but I am glad to say that life is returning to "normal" again finally and I started P90X again yesterday. I am feeling especially encouraged after watching Biggest Loser tonight! How inspiring those people are!
Anyway, on our way home from San Antonio on Sept. 15th, I typed this post. Thought I'd go ahead and post it since I took the time to type it!

Vacation = calories
I tried, I really did. I actually didn’t “give in” and do something intentionally “bad” until this morning at breakfast right before we headed home. I caved and had a waffle at the hotel’s continental breakfast. I did use sugar free syrup though! It wasn’t even very good. Bummer! Most meals, I tried to order the healthiest options I could. At the Rain Forest Café, I ordered a bowl of veggie soup. At Sea World, I got baked chicken, fries and strawberries. At our Dinner with Shamu I had salad, baked chicken, brown rice, sautéed veggies and a tiny sliver of each dessert. The next day I got a turkey veggie wrap for lunch and ordered tortilla soup for dinner at Dave & Busters. I had raisin bran for breakfast one day, oatmeal the next day and the waffle today. I snacked on low fat yogurt cups and pistachios. I even got up yesterday morning before we headed to Sea World and worked out in the fitness room at the hotel. I was so proud of myself! I did 25 min on the elliptical machine and then a few shoulder, tricep and bicep work outs with the weights in there. It was actually really nice because I had the whole room to myself and it was totally state-of-the-art NICE equipment. I even got to catch a whole episode of Joel Osteen while I was on the elliptical.
Anyway, tomorrow will be back to normal eating and work outs—and hopefully back down to my 135 weight! (I’m sure I gained a few pounds this weekend!)

That's what I love about you - you ar ebrutally honest and you get right back on that horse after a setback. I'm SO glad to have you back here. Welcome to October! We've still got some time before Thanksgiving to make some significant progress - are you with me???

Didn't catch BL last night, but I did record it. Can't wait to watch! I was too busy watching my White Sox take the AL Central Division championship!
