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.

Don't you just hate interruptions? I think the most annoying time to get interrupted is during a work out. For me anyway, it takes total concentration to be sure my form is spot-on and that I am really pushing myself. I work as hard mentally when I'm doing an intense workout as I do physically.
Well, since last Thursday when we did Shoulders & Arms, I have had massive interruptions. Not that they were bad things...just things that prevented me from being able to do my workouts. As a matter of fact, one of the interruptions was a visit from Matt's little brother and his wife--and that was a very fun and relaxing interruption, but nevertheless, I couldn't desert my company for an hour and a half every day they were here to do a workout.
Another good interruption is that I finally got my transcription job back and when the doctor decided to start sending me work again...he sent 5 days worth all at once! I was on a strike from the rest of my life until I could get that work caught back up.
Anyway, the rest of my excuses interruptions are just piddly that maybe could have been over-looked, but weren't.


Guess what the UPS man delivered to my house about 30 minutes ago???????
I'm not sure how I feel about this. It's like the feeling you have in your stomach when you're about to go on a rollercoaster. Adrenaline rush coupled with anxiety and a dose of fear. I know this is going to push me 'past my limits' so-to-speak. It is going to be the most intense, most extreme, most Insane thing I have ever done and while that is scary, it's also totally THRILLING because I know what this is going to do for my body!

So for any of you who wondered exactly what you get with this it is:
It comes in this really cool old-school looking hard-back textbook. When you open it, each page (which is thick board) has 2 DVD's in it. At the back tucked away neatly in a special pocket is the Nutrition Guide (YAY! New Recipes!!), the calander and other papers and info that I haven't really looked at yet. This picture is of the big poster/calandar that you use to see what workout is on each day! Cool huh!?

You might have also noticed in that top picture that we also ordered some of the Men's Strength and Muscle Formula. Matt is really trying to increase his muscle mass (and not lose any more weight) so we decided to try this special "recovery drink" for men that includes creatine for muscle building! I'll definitely let you know how he likes it! (thanks Demi for the recommendation!)

Here is what he looks like right now. Not too shabby!! He's got great tone and definition--he just wants to be BIGGER. I think this supplement is going to be the answer. I'll post more pics as he progresses!

So..........What does this mean for our Round 3 of P90X??????????

I'm not really sure. I know that tonight we are planning on skipping church (bad, I know) and doing a work out. We are about to be committing to church every Wednesday night starting on September 9th so the kids can attend the Awana's program and Matt and I are going to be running the Ice Cream and Soda Shoppe at our church on Wednesday since that hasn't started yet...we are going to play hookey this time. I am VERY anxious to get started with Insanity and see what it's all about...but I know for SURE that we aren't going to abandon P90X further notice, I guess you'll just have to be surprised with us each day on which program we do! ha ha

If any of you want to jump on the Insanity bandwagon with me (and you KNOW you do!) then click here to order!
