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 9

Okay, I'm trying to find something GOOD to say about this day.....
Not that it was a "bad" day or anything...but as far as my eating and exercise go...not the best.
I started it out good by having an egg-white scramble for breakfast with 2 light WW toasts and 1 turkey bacon (250 cal). For some quick exercise before I took a shower, I did 20 minutes on the elliptical. I did 1 minute going so hard and fast I was breathless and my HR was up around 170 and then 1 minute of "recovery" where I was still working hard but not so hard I couldn't breathe and on and on. So in all, I did 10 minutes of the HARD stuff and 10 minutes of the less hard stuff. According to my HR monitor, I burned 153 calories. Then at lunchtime I had a hair appointment and had to just grab something quickly, so I grabbed a Mojo mountain mix trail bar (180 cal--protien bar) and a small banana and a water. When I got home from that at 3:30, I was pretty hungry so I had a bowl of my weight watchers soup (42 cal)
For appetizer (while I was getting dinner ready) I made a small bowl of guacamole and we split that.
For dinner, Matt and I had a bowl of the WW soup (2 cups--84 cal). Each of us also had 2 Rosemary Kashi Go Lean crackers with a peice of turkey and pepperjack cheese on top.
Then here is where the Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad part comes in. After all that we were still hungry. I knew my mom had this wonderful strawberry cream cake at her house and I was wanting a piece SO Bad....but instead, I tried to satisfy my craving with a sugar free fudgsicle (60 cal)....Blah! Then I tried a 100 cal pack of chips-ahoy crips---Blah! Then off to my moms I went for a slice of cake! Yep, after all that I had a slice of cake. If it's any consolation, I didn't eat ANY of the icing. I scraped it all off and just ate the cake with the fresh strawberries in the middle. YUM! Believe me when I say..I needed this cake. I was having a tough night with 2 screamng kids and a grouchy husband and I needed an escape. Yes, I'm aware that a work out would have been a MUCH better choice...but for a quick (and delicious) fix the cake did it! :o)
Hey, I can't be good all the time! :o)

understandable - you just get back on the horse today and work hard again.

I had a GREAT workout last night, to the point where I almost got sick - ha! But it always feels good to fall into bed exhausted from a good sweat and calorie burn, doesn't it?

Have a great Friday and a happy weekend!

Sometimes if your having such a strong craving for something, it's better to just give in and have a "small" piece. Then you satisfied. (it saves you from trying endlessly to satisfy that craving, to no avail, and then eating it anyway).
Don't worry about it though, just get back up, dust yourself off today, and start fresh today.
*Plus, all of us deserve a treat once in awhile, especially after a hard day. :)
