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 9

Today was Plyo X. Not one of my favorite work outs...but certainly one that gets the job done!
I am realizing that I need to get out my nutrition guide again and study it more closely. I have been just kind of "winging it" where our meals are concerned, but I'm pretty sure we are still getting too many carbs and fats. I remember Phase 1 being very un-tasty and carb-less. If I'm ever gonna drop these last 10-15 pounds, I'm pretty sure it's going to come from changing my diet because I just simply can't add more exercise.
Anyway, todayI got up and went to the gym for my core class. Then I did 10 minutes on the elliptical at a high resistance before I had to leave to get Grant to school. Tonight when Matt got home from work, we did Plyo X. Whew! Talk about working up a sweat! I had to take 2 showers today! In all I burned 768 calories!!
As for eating...
Breakfast was egg white scrambles with FF mozerella, 1 light WW toast, 1 turkey bacon, water.
I also had my "usual" cup of 1/2 coffee, 1/2 skim milk with sugar free Nestle chocolate mixed in.
Lunch was a bowl of veggies mixed with a little brown rice and then a bowl of fresh strawberries and bananas and walnuts.
For snack I had 8 plum sweets.
For dinner I made turkey spaghetti with sugar free sauce and whole wheat angel hair pasta. We also had salad and carrots.
For "dessert" Matt had a protien shake and I had a small bowl of Kashi Go Lean oatmeal with raisins and walnuts mixed in. That was probably "bad" but I was still really hungry--even after dinner. Still, when I looked at how many calories that probably was--I cringed.
Tomorrow I am going to aim for only 2 servings of carbs all day. I think if I cut out the toast at breakfast, that will help some. Also, I should probably try to end my oatmeal/raisin/nut adddiction because I think that little bowl of yumminess is about 350 calories!!! (oatmeal is 150, raisins are 100 and nuts are 100) YIKES!

be sure to get those carbs early in the morning, before theheavy workouts and save the lean protein for the evening. carbs stored overnight only end up being stored as sugar and fat, rather than being burned.

Great workout! I'm back to the gym today to kick these winter blahs! Zumba and Hardcore tonight - I can't wait!

Ditto to what Kate said! :)
Carbs early (to give you energy through the day).
