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.

EXERCISE OVERLOAD! Today has been nuts! I got up this morning and practiced my routine for my class I was teaching at the gym (so got a light work out there). Went to the gym and did a 45 minute step class. Then taught a 45 minute interval class. Came home, put on my swimsuit and push-mowed (hardest work of the day!) the front, back and side yards. Then I hopped on the riding mower and mowed the rest of the acreage. Next Matt got home from work and we did Shoulders & Arms and Ab Ripper.
It's been non-stop movement since I opened my eyes at 5:15 this morning!
To counter-balance all that calorie-burning, I ate like a PIG today.
Really guys, I am hiding my face in shame right now.
Here's the list, in no particular order:
egg white veggie scramble with 1 peice turkey sausage
3 apple slices/10 grapes
20 pistachios
3 bites of Grant's ham sandwich
2 Doritos
Salad with tomatos, bell peppers and ham (my lunch)
handful of carmel corn
1/2 Recovery drink
Moutain Dew Icee from Kum-n-Go
Sweet & Spicy Chicken pasta stuff (frozen dinner-light on calories)
3 cherries
1 bite of Grant's Snickers bar not. healthy.
I will say this at least: all the bad stuff, I ate just a LITTLE bitty bit of. My big meals were the eggs for breakfast, the salad for lunch and the chicken pasta stuff for dinner.
Still, my sweet little P90X team-mates who are looking to me for inspiration....this is a case of DO AS I SAY--NOT AS I DO!!!
I love you guys! I'm glad you all love me!

Hi Jen!
I found your page on google by searching for ladies using P90x. I am so happy I found your blog! Not only do you like to workout but you and your family love God!!

My blog deals with caring for naturally curly hair and I have a few posts on me doing P90x. I will have to post more on P90x.

Last night I did Core Synergistics and I feel great. This is third week in my second round of P90x.

Keep up the awesome work that you are doing!

Hey Jen! I have been totally MIA but I'm back to school soon and kicking off INSANITY next week. Looks like you're doing really well! Thanks for the pancake recipe! I might make some of those and freeze them so I have some variety for breakfast!
