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.

Remember These?


Remember these charts I made up back on the 8th of February?? Well, here is the result!! Every day that you see crossed off in pink is a day I completed my work out! FYI: From Feb 8th till April 18th, I only missed 3 days! (that is taking into account that on Sundays I either had a "rest" day or I did StretchX). Every day you see crossed off in green is a day Matt did a work out. He started out strong in Feb., did a little less in March and basically fell off the P90X wagon in April, but ironically...he looks just as fabulous as ever. It must be all the hard, manual labor he does at work that keeps him in such great shape!

Anyway, tomorrow we have a repair man coming to fix our big flat screen TV and I thought I should probably take down my ugly charts that hang right beside it. It looks pretty tacky and technically...I'm done with this round of P90X. I'm still not taking "after" pics until day 100 (so Wednesday will be the big day (or maybe Thurs. or Fri. depending on when Matt is available)). Anyway, I hated to throw away these charts. They have kept me so accountable. I couldn't STAND to not get to cross off each day and sometimes just knowing there was going to be a blank box was enough to get me up off the couch and push play! Hey...whatever it takes right? :)

it's all about finding the right motivation, so chart away!

I have a similar chart, for my half-marathon training. I can't stand to "not" put a checkmark by that day, showing I completed it. So it motivates me to do it. Plus I don't want my hubby to look and say "you haven't worked out all week?" It really helps me to see if I'm on track, or if I've been slacking. Love those charts!
