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.

Like I mentioned in my last post, we had friends over Friday night and didn't get in bed until 1 am, so we SLEPT IN on Saturday. Normally when I "sleep in" I get up around 7. Today though, it was 5 after 9! wowsers! It was like being a teenager again--except I felt "hung over" all day (and there was no drinking involved, I promise!)
Anyhow, I spent a good portion of the day outside with Matt helping him put up shelving in his shop building. By the time we came in the house to work out, it was 5 pm and we were SO hungry. I told him "let's eat dinner first and then in a couple of hours, do the work out."
Ya, right. We ate, cleaned up the dishes, took showers and realized that we HAD to make a trip into town to Wal-Mart for something we needed to bring to church early the next morning. It was nearly 10 pm when we got home and I think it was like 10:15 and we were all already in bed! (exhausting day-what can I say!?) work out.
Sunday was busy too. I was scheduled to teach the 5-yr-old class so Matt went to service by himself. Then we came home from church, had lunch, cleaned up the dishes and headed out to the pool with the kids for some swimming. Came in at 3:30 and did CardioX before we had to shower and leave for the Ice Cream Social at church. I TOTALLY meant to eat before we left so I wouldn't be tempted by the free hot dogs and ice cream...but I ran out of time and it was either eat first and get there late---or leave now and be hungry there. I ended up eating 1 hot dog and 2 small bowls of icecream. They have like 15 different flavors of BlueBell to choose from and it's all free. They give out small scoops in little bowls so you can try lots of kinds so I got a bowl of Cookies-N-Cream (my fav) and then I tried a bowl of Southern Hospitality (my NEW fav). YUM!
Working out and eating was not very good but I am pretty sure I have learned my lesson. I am typing this on Monday morning and I have been paying for that kind of eating all morning long...if you know what I mean. Ugh. When you feed your body natural, healthy foods for 5 days and then JUNK all of a sudden, it sorta freaks out on you---just a word of warning! :o)
I'm glad today is Monday and we can get back into our schedule of workouts and eating.

Great post! I am 3 days in to my blog and P90X. I am hoping that the craving for bad food happens quickly. I feel as if I am hungry all the time right now!!

I am interested in doing either P90 or 10-minute trainer. Can I e-mail you privately? Thanks so much,

Amazing how much better you feel when you are eating healthy huh?! But at least you can allow yourself these small cheat meals from time to time, and it isn't going to ruin all of your hard work. Mainly because you are at the point where you know a proper serving size, and can tell a huge difference in how you feel when you eat the un-heathly foods; therefor, you wont want to splurge on them often. :)
I'm proud of your girly!!!!!
