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.

R2-Day 4, 5 & 6

Saturday, Sunday and Monday (today). Woops! Didn't mean to forget to blog for the past few days...but just haven't had time to sit down at the computer!
Saturday Matt and I spent almost the entire day outside putting the metal on the walls of his shop building. Then I got out the push mower and did the front and back yard--so that was my exercise for that day.
Sunday we taught the 3 year old class at church and then came home and grilled turkey burgers. Then it was outside again for a quick dip in the pool before we had to come in and start getting ready for a labor day cook out at some of our friends' house. So...didn't get any specific exercise that day. Bummer!!
Monday--today--Labor Day I got up and cleaned the whole house including shampooing all the carpet. Then I threw on my swim suit and went out to help Matt some more. But, it turned out he didn't really need me so instead I cleaned out our gutters! ha ha...but really...I did. Lately I've been noticing that when it rains, the water just pours out of the gutters and doesn't come out the down-spouts...so I figured they were clogged. And I was right...they were full of gunk. Anyway after that I got in the pool with the kids for a bit and then came in and showered and then cooked turkey spagetti for dinner. Brooklyn had a big project to do for her homework and by the time we got done with that, it was already 8:30 pm. Then I got the kids in the bathroom and did their nails. I've never seen Grant's fingernails so long! YICK!! Also, Brooklyn's nails needed to be cleaned off and re-painted so we did that. Now, finally, it's 10 pm and I just got them to bed. I decided its too late to do a P90X work out video now, so instead I just did 20 staggered push ups and half of Ab Ripper. It's not much...but at least I did SOMEthing, right? :o)
Tomorrow will be back to normal and will be a lot easier for me to get my work outs done. I think if I am being realistic....there is NO way I am going to reach my goal of getting to 130 by next Friday (the 12th). I am actually stuck at 136 right now and can't seem to get the scale to budge. To lose 6 pounds by then, I'd have to lose half a pound EVERY day. That's next to impossible...unless I starve myself. Hmmm......I wonder if I could do that? :o)
Okay..well, I think I'll end this for now and maybe go blog-surfing for a bit before I conk out. g'night ya'll!

Just be patient, and work at it everyday, getting in what exercise you can and eating the best you can, it will come off in time.

A quick fix is just that, it quickly comes off and back on again.

Slow loss is much more permanent. Ü

Ditto to what Candy wrote! :) You know that "not eating" isn't the solution. It simply lowers your metabolism and then when you do eat, your body stores everything it can as fat. You definitely don't want that! So eat healthy foods, and in small amounts, about every 3-4 hours...and keep up your workouts. You'll be at your goal in no time!
