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.

Veering off course....

Gahhhh.....why is food so DANG YUMMY? I've got the working out thing down pat...2 hours a day for the past 2 1/2 weeks (minus Sunday's) but the eating part is totally sabotaging my goal.It seems like every day starts out the same--healthy breakfast, workout, good lunch, snack and them BAM! someone wants to go out for dinner or my mom brings over cupcakes or I bake a pound cake or the halloween candy grabs me by the neck and stuffs chocolate down my throat! I mean, what am I supposed to do? I can't be good ALL the time. :o)I went back through the early days of this blog and looked over what I was eating way back when---when I was ACTUALLY losing weight and WOW! I forgot how good I was then! One day I wrote "I ate perfectly all day except for 2 little doritos at lunch"! Man...where did that willpower go?
Okay and now to switch subjects and talk about something else...THE BIGGEST LOSER!WHAT is UP with that show? It's like they 've taken my absolutely favorite thing ever (working out and eating healthy) and mixed it with my absolutely LEAST favorite thing ever (junior-high drama). Gross! I am so disgusted with Vicki (and Brady) that I seriously have un-Godly feelings toward them! I have never disliked anyone on TV so much. I was SO FRIGGIN FRUSTRATED last night with all their snickering and hateful comments towards Phil that I could NOT sit still on the couch. I got up, took off all my clothes, put on my tennis shoes and did the elliptical machine for the remainder of the show in my bra and panties--on level TWELVE! I've never done level 12 on my ellipitcal before...but that is how much "ARUGHHHH!" I had inside. I had to do something to get it out! Boy is my butt sore today~! (which is a wonderful thing!)Anyway, I KNOW Kate and Kandy will be thinking the same thing as we all share a DISGUST for the blue team. But one thing I have to mention is WAY TO GO AMY!!!!!!! I was SO SO SO Proud of her for voting off Brady last night! I just wanted to jump in the screen and hug her (and pop Vicky in the nose).Another thing: I SO TOTALLY would have won that 1,000 step challenge if I had been on there. I'm a step-0-maniac at the gym. Plus, nothing in the WORLD would have stopped me if it meant keeping a blue team member off. But I do give PROPS to Stacy! What a hard-worker!~ I wanted to see her beat Ed SOOOO BAD!Okay, I've gotta quit rambling on and get the kids ready for school. Just wanted to take a second and spill my thoughts.

OK - so I lied and said i'd watch before I read your blog on it. but, i couldn't help myself.

Now, I'm confused - I thought Phil was already voted off the show two weeks ago?

AMEN SISTER! I'm with you...I was SOOOO Mad at Vickie with her snickering and snooty attitude. Then I was really MAD when Ed got to come back on the show...Heba was driving me nuts! I had a lot of frustrations to work-out last night.
But I was SOOOOOOO ECSTATIC when Amy voted Brady off. She actually stood up for herself, in the face of these bullies, and I was so PROUD of her. You know Vickie and Heba are going to make her life horrible for the next few weeks, but hopefully all of the other girls will stand with Amy and defend her. It was the smartest move she could have made! Because those two {horrid} married couples would have sent her packing in an instant without another thought about it. She had to vote him off to help even the playing field! I was SOOO PROUD of AMY!

I was on my elliptical for a over an hour, venting my frustrations through the first part of the show (I had A LOT of frustrations, so I got a GREAT Cardio workout! LOL!!!) Then I did weight training {while dreaming of shoving my fist through Vickie's UGLY face...ARGH! I've never disliked someone and their ugly attitude so much!} Then I laid in the floor and did crunches through the final weigh-in. I was about ready to pull my hair out...until Amy voted, then I was jumping for joy! That one vote made me so happy! {Ridiculous that you can care so much about a weight loss show, and who wins and loses huh...LOL!}

As for Veering off course...hang in there, and find what motivated you when you started.
This is a hard time of year to stay focused, when you are bombarded with delicious food around every corner. Just remember to tell yourself that you can be satisfied with just a don't have to eat it all....the first one or two bites are the best anyway.
You CAN reach your goals Jen. Just don't lose focus on why you set those goals to begin with.
I'm cheering for you!
Love ya!

Love the blog... I can totally relate with the eating thing. As I have a major sweet tooth since I cut the cokes totally out of my diet. But still love my HOT and SPICY Cheez-its. But only a hand full when the mood hits me. But I am pretty good with staying on track. I'm getting into shape for my wife. I have just enough time to do 2 rounds of P90X before she comes home.. But its nice to know I'm not the only with low wheel power. HAHA
