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 79

Wow, I can't believe I'm only on day 2 of this fat-loss diet thing. I already feel like I've shrunk (yeah!) but...I'm not looking forward to eating the exact same thing all day today as I've eaten for the past 2 days...but...I'm sticking with it nonetheless because I can FEEL that it is working. I can't WAIT till next Tuesday when I get on the scale and see how much weight I've dropped! If I'm in the 120's...you'll probably hear my screams of joy all the way at your house! I am not going to get my hopes up too high for that though...as I would have to lose 4.4 pounds (just exactly the same as you Kandy!) in order to be at 129.....so we'll see.
Anyway, today's work out was Back & Biceps with Ab Ripper X. I pushed myself beyond the norm and used 15's for at least the beginning of all the sets. Occasionally I had to drop down to 10's (like in the strip set curls and the one arm concentration curls) but I started with 15's and did as many as I could with that heavier weight before I switched over (so I could get more reps in). Matt said he can tell I have definitely taken my workouts and my eating to a whole new level --and he's right. What a BIG compliment that is coming from him! If all goes well...my 90 days pics will really be obvious! I can't believe I only have 11 more days to go!....it's bitter sweet!
I was going to post my food for the day again...but it is exactly the same as yesterday except I did NOT have a protien bar and extra banana and I DID have my 1 c. mixed berries after dinner.

Good Job Jen! :)
Just keep you eye on the prize, and remember these are just "fueling stops" to keep you engine going. When you think of it like that, it makes it easier.

that's great! wow - only 11 days left??? i swear you just started. food has so much to do with our well-being. every bit as important (if not more) than the exercise. i've been trying my best to eat clean this week . . . so far so good (with just a few bumps along the way). i'm reading a book on healthy eating for improved fertility, cycles, and the like since we swtiched over to nfp the last few months. no matter what plan, though - i think we all know what's good for our physical and emotional bodies. kudos to you my friend! you rock~
