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.

Day 8

Do you ever have one of those days where you wake up and feel like you've only been asleep for a few minutes? I had one of those this morning. I woke up with the feeling of sand in my eyes and soooooooo tired. Matt suggested I switch up my morning routine and get right into the shower to hopefully wake myself up. Well, it didn't work. I also tried a big mug of coffee/cocoa which helped a teensy bit...but only for a while. Anyway, I've been dragging ALL day long. No energy, no motivation. It was everything I could do to take off my comfy Adidas pants and warm sweatshirt and put on my gym shorts and tennis shoes...but I did it. Then Matt and I did Chest & Back as well as Ab Ripper X tonight before we ate dinner. It wasn't my best day ever--nutritionally speaking, but certainly not the worst.
For breakfast I had a mug of coffee/sugar free cocoa/skim milk and a bowl of Kashi Go Lean oatmeal with raisins and nuts mixed in.
For "snack" I ate a few bites of Grant's ramen noodles.
For lunch I met a girlfriend at Panera bread. I did the "Pick any 2" lunch special and had a small bowl of chicken tortilla soup with an apple and 1/2 of a chicken chipotle sandwich with water.
For "snack" I had about 8 Plum Sweets (before our work out)
For dinner we had baked tilapia with brown veggie rice, steamed broccoli and salad w/ water.
I didn't wear my HRM tonight during the work out so I'm not sure how many calories I burned. Probably not too many since it was mostly weights (no cardio).
Here's hoping that tomorrow I wake up with double-energy!!
Ps. It's 8:30 pm and I'm already in bed! yippppeee!! I'm GIDDY with delight! :) (hopefully the kids don't realize we put them to bed an hour early tonight! )

I'm w/ ya on being tired. I pooped out at about 8:30 last night, but I think that's because it's my time of the month. Woke up today feeling well rested - which is a rareity for me.

Don't underestimate the calorie burn from weight training. it can be as much, if not higher, than cardio! (if you're lifting heavy enough, and not resting to long between sets/reps).
I'm with ya on being tired to. I haven't even worked out in two days, because I can't get caught up between work and continuing ed classes.
