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.

I knew it!

okay Kandy, Kate....if you haven't watched BL yet...close this screen down FAST!
But for those of you who have.....I just have to say YA-HOOO!!! I am so happy that M. won and that V. didn't win ANYTHING! It couldn't have turned out better. Well, okay, I guess I would have like it EVEN better if Heba hadn't won the at-home money and either one of the Amy's would have won it..but still...I'm thrilled with the outcome! exciting, the next season is already about to start! (Jan. 6) I can't wait.
I also did the elliptal for 61 minutes while watching the show but I finally decided to get off because I was SO SICK of being on that thing and I wasn't putting hardly ANY effort into it at all. Plus, I already did a 30 minutes of Shoulders & Arms this morning and 30 minutes of Legs & Back as well as the whole Ab Ripper X video this morning.
In all today, I burned 814 calories. Not too bad for not getting to go to the gym.
I checked into buying some Zumba DVD's for at home. Turns out they're pretty expensive. Even from places like going for about $30 for one dvd. That's too pricey for me. Plus, I'm not even sure I'd like it. If its all the "old" songs that I've done a hundred times...then nah--no thanks. Not for $30 anyway. Maybe for like $8.
Anyhow, for now, I guess I'll just stick with going to Zumba at the gym. I even thought about becoming an instructor. As much as I love it...and love working makes sense. But, I'm not quite confident in my coordination skills to do something like that, I don't think.
Anyway, everyone on BL looked awesome. I was most shocked with how Phil looked I think. He didn't even look like the same guy. Shellay also looked AWESOME!
What a blessing that show is to so many people! Everyone of them won really...they all won the opportunity to live their lives again--for real. No amount of money can give you that!

I was going to send you girls a big HOORAY e-mail this morning. Don't they all look fantastic?! OMG - those last few weeks of the show I kept saying 'I don't know, I still don't see any dramatic changes." Well, damn, I see them now! I was so hoping that Amy P or Amy C or Phil would win the at-home competition - they are all smokin' hot! But just the look on Heba's face when she found out that, by a landslide, America had chosen Ed, well, that was satisfaction enough for me :) OMG - Renee, Shelay - those are some HOT moms now! I am so proud of Michelle for seeing this through. She looks fantastic & wasn't all in love w/ herself like Ali was at this point last year. I was so sad to see the show end thinking it would be months before we see Bob and Jillian again, but nope, just a few weeks! Tony just rolled his eyes when he saw the preview - ha! Yep, here we go again! And this season looks like it's going to be even more dramatic both physically and emotionally. Good for you for working out through the whole thing. I was making "reindeer droppings" for the office Christmas party today. You were sweating it up and there I was w/ my hands covered in chocolate and peanut butter - ha!

Success is so sweet - I can't wait for the next season to start!

Yeah, $30 for one DVD. Too much. I coudl see if it was new music, new routines, but not for the same ones you do in class. I have to miss class today for a color/cut and next week to b/c of Christmas Eve. But I am going to try and make the day classes w/ all my time off.

No Kidding!!!!!! Yippee!!!!!!!! I knew it the minute Michelle walked out, and just the way that V. headed up to the scale, like she could still barely walk, I'm sorry but that girl deserves all the mouthing off she did, and she will most likely be the chunky butt she started out as in a matter of time. The ones who deserved it all were the best looking ones there last night!!!!

Kate said...

Yep Amos, I really do see Vicki headed right back to where she started. Sad to say, but I think it's the truth. How long can she keep up the pace of 4 am workouts, work, more workouts, and getting home @ 9PM?

The little devil in me laughed hysterically when she almost fell down the stairs. Ummm, dress way too tight she couldn't even move her legs. And way too high heels :) Hello, doesn't look sexy if you can't pull it off~

I'm so glad Michelle won too...her attitude was so beatiful and gracious. Go girl!! I have to admit my 2 favorite parts were the look on Heba's face when she found out American voted for a landslide at that! Then when she saw how much weight Vicky lost...her face was ticked b/c she knew Ed was beat! Also when Vicky tripped in those shoes...I mean seriously...who would choose to wear something like those shoes if she knew she couldn't walk in them on the FINALE like that? Ugh.

I agree that she'll probably gain the weight back...just as Bob was all was too much of a competition for her instead of a lifestyle change.

They all looked stunning! That was probably the best finale ever IMO.

Now...did anyone else notice that the BL's finale's are always very poorly done live?? Evey time...people dont' knwo where to stand...there are odd camera angles people in the wrong places. The crowd's clapping is always too loud and you can't hear Alison. I don't understand why they don't handle it more professionally. Just my opinion.

I was so excited to see that america voted for Ed. Heba didn't get the vote, because no one liked her dominate "my way or no way" personality. But I was sad to see her beat Amy for the at home money. I didn't think it was fair that she was able to compete against the "at home" competitors since she was at the ranch the entire time.
I was so PROUD of Michelle!!!! She definitely deserved to win.
I think vicki will go right back to her old lifestyle and gain every bit of that weight back. She didn't focus on learning, she just focused on manipulating the game and the other players. I was so happy to see that her and Brady went home with NO MONEY! :)
