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.

It's ok though...I've got 9 more :o)

So...I think I broke my toe. Maybe it's just a bad sprain, I'm not sure.
I was running down the staircase in our house and at the very bottom is my bedroom. I guess in my "hurry" I popped my pinky toe against the door jam and bent it backwards. I went straight down to the floor and starting punching the carpet. Meanwhile, Brooklyn is standing there just staring at me with this totally confused look on her face and she says, "Mom, What in the WORLD are you doing?" To which I pounded the floor a few more times and then looked up at her and scream-whispered/hissed, "I CAN'T TALK RIGHT NOW!!!" It was like the pain you get when you stub your toe TIMES TEN! I could feel it running all the way up my leg to my knee! I sat there "getting control of myself" for a few seconds and then I had to pull it together and get on with our day. I actually forgot all about it for a little while...but later on when I took my shoe off, I could clearly see the "damage." It was about twice it's normal size, a dark purple color and sitting a little awkwardly. Guh-rrrrate! (read major sarcasm there!)

Fortunately, I work for a podiatrist (foot doctor) and I happen to know that there ain't a whole lot they can do for a broke toe. Time heals all wounds (or like I've heard it said "Time wounds all heels!" ha ha--just a quick joke there for ya!)
(this picture makes it look quite a bit better than it really does, the whole underside is purple!)
Anyway, those of you who know me KNOW that a bruised or sprained or broke pinky toe is NOT going to stop me. I'm not stupid, I'll baby it for a few days...but God gave me 9 other toes and surely they can pull a little extra weight while the baby is resting! :o)

Speaking of weight....guess what I weighed this afternoon? 129. Yessireee! My goal has been to get to 130 for the last 6 months. As soon as I hit that, I started aiming for 125 but hadn't seen any progress in quite a while. So, it was a very pleasant suprise to see the 120-anything on the scale today! Hip! Hip! Hooray! Bummer that all Memorial weekend we will be at the mercy of other people to prepare our meals and will have VERY little chance of eating healthy! Oh well! I've got the REST of my life to get to 125, so there is no sence in fretting over one simple weekend!

And lastly, I want to say that if you are reading this and you haven't read my last post (the one before this) you MUST go and read it. You just must!~
Happy Memorial Day Ya'll! I'll be back to bloggy-land on Tuesday! (get your workouts in!)
