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 85

So....Kenpo X was on the schedule today. However, I think I did plenty without doing that video. I started out with an hour of core at the gym. Next was my first ever Boot Camp class! I think our motto for that class is "we're bringin' sexy back". It was SO HARD and SO much FUN! The very last thing we did was a lap around the track. I was already pretty exhausted...but it just so happened that I was the first one to hit the I took off running at a pretty good pace. A few seconds later I could hear footsteps coming up behind me. I hollered out "You're not gonna pass me!!!" and I took OFF sprinting as fast as my legs could move. I didn't even know who was behind me but there was no way on earth I was letting ANYONE pass me! ha ha ha When I made it back to the aerobics floor, I thought it might actually be the day I upchuck my breakfast....but thankfully, I kept it down and had my pride intact as well. (gee I am getting more competative with every day!) Anyway...tonight after Grant's T-ball practice, I had Matt drop me off at the corner gas station and I ran a little under a mile down the sidewalk before he picked me back up. I had planned to run the full 3 miles at the H.S. track tonight...but they had a soccer game going when we went by, so I had to settle for running on the sidewalk that runs along the highway. oh well. Maybe tomorrow. I found a neighborhood not too far away that, if I run around the whole thing is a mile. I figure I could just make the loop 3 times and have my 3 miles in. I just wish I had someone to do it with--Matt said he doesn't like the idea of me being over there all by myself. It's kind of in a secluded area. I've never done anything like I'm really not sure...
Anyway, my eating has been excellent today...but I am REALLY craving a Skinny Cow right now. Like...I want it so bad I can practically TASTE it! I've been thinking about calling Kandy and getting "permission" first. If she says it's okay...then I know it's okay...but if she says "NO! Don't do it!!" then I definitely won't. Sometimes it just seems like I have to feed a craving or I'll never get satisfied...!!??? Probably the better thing to do is to teach my body (and mind) that it can't always have what it wants!

I'm struggling with control right now too - the spirit is strong, but the flesh is weak! Today is a new day, and a new opportunity for me to do what I know is right, regardless of how hard it may be.

I can't believe you do all of that in addition to P90X! But then again, I can believe it because the proof is in your photos :) Keep up the great work!

P.S. I'd be careful running through that other suburb - try to find someone to go with you, or at the very least bring your cell phone!

P.S. #2 You can also call the local police department and ask if there's been any "bad" activity in that subdivision, and there's also websites online where you enter an address and it'll show you if (and where) any convicted sex offenders live. I did that before I bought my house, and it actually helped me NOT make offers on a few houses that were exactly what I wanted! Just be careful :)

Yes; cell phone a must! I also sometimes carry my "pepper spray" with me, if I'm not sure of the area. Never hurts to be extra cautious, and aware of your surroundings.
