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.

Baby got BACK

So today as I chillaxed out in the yard on my lounge chair I browsed through Matt's Mens Fitness magazine. I came across an interesting article talking about the importance of back strength and how a lot of people neglect to really work out their back. We tend to focus on the muscles we can SEE more than the ones behind us..if you know what I mean. Anyway, my back is one of the areas of my body where I have really seen a drastic change after doing P90X. I had really never worked out my back specificially before. Well, wanting to see how I "measured up" to the pictures in the magaznes, I went in and set my camera on auto-pilot and took a pic of my back. Not too shabby. Not perfect, but waayyy better than a year ago when I was packing as much flab on my back as I was on my belly!
(bummer that I didn't clean my bathroon BEFORE i took this pic! Augh! Ignore the MESS! Tomorrow is cleaning day!)

-k- you look amazing. I did some of these exercises this summer while visiting my sis in Utah. I will be going out to purchase me these videos. You look amazing. And I totally agree about the back thing. After carrying 5 kids (2 of which were twins) my ribs and pelvis are hyper-mobile and need some tightening up. Thanks for motivation!
