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 8

What a wet Wednesday! It's been raining since I woke up this morning and all I've felt like doing is sleeping! Ugh! I hate those kinds of days. I mean..I love the rain and the sound of it tip-tapping on the roof is so peaceful...but I hate the way I feel---drowsy and very low-energy. Anyway, you know me. How I feel does NOT dictate what I do...so...on went the sports bra and tennis shoes and I knocked out 58 minutes of Kenpo X. (bye, bye 316 calories!) I just sat down to have my lunch (eeek! how'd it get to be 2:15 pm already?) and now I'm gonna spend the next 45 minutes doing work for the dr. office. Then it'll be off to get kids from school, home to shower and then off to eat........................MEXICAN for dinner again!! AUGHHHH!!!!
What can I say? The whole (extended) fam is going...and I don't want to be a party pooper and say "no thanks, I'll just stay home and have my diet soup instead." All I can think of is to try to eat some healthy snacks before I go and then maybe I won't do badly while we're there!
So far today, I've done great. I had a bowl of cereal with banana and skim milk again for breakfast (approx. 400 cal) and then I had a bowl of my soup just now (84 cal.). I'm gulping down water at every chance I get....hoping that will help keep my tummy full.
Anyway...I hope you all will try that recipe I posted for the soup. It really is delicious!

BONUS:
So...Matt got home from work and said "AWW man..you already worked out? I was going to do it with you tonight." so I replied, "well babe--put on your tennis shoes and I'll just work out again!" So...in addition to Kenpo X earlier..I also just did Chest & Back (bye, bye another 244 calories!) YIPPEE! Now I won't feel SO bad about the Mexican food for dinner!

Thats a great bonus Jen, a double work out is just what your looking for and even more so when you can do it with your husband...Makes it not seem so much like another workout...
