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.

Have you been wondering where my daily P90X posts have gone? I kinda "quit" blogging them there for a bit but I remember that if I don't blog about my workouts/eating--no one holds me accountable, so it's time to get back on board.
Monday was Day 8. The bottom line is this: I cleaned house all morning, had a hair appointment at 1 pm, went to my parents house at 4 pm to pick up kids, mom had dinner fixed, ate smoked sausage, potatoes and green beans with cornbread and then carrot cake for dessert, came home and got kids in bed, went to bed. Yes, you read that workout whatsoever on Monday. My excuse: didn't want to mess up my hair. Lame, I know.

Tuesday was Day 9 and would normally have been Plyo but since we missed Chest & Back on Monday...we did it on Tuesday night. I figured if we skip Yoga like we always end up Thursday we'll be back on schedule. I went to the gym Tues. morning as always and did my 2 classes there. Had that awful roasted chicken sandwich from Arby's for lunch and then ate baked fish and veggies for dinner. Did Chest & Back and Ab Ripper before bed.

Wednesday was Day 10. We skipped out on church and instead did Plyometrics, ate dinner (turkey&veggie spaghetti with salad) and then watched The Race to Witch Moutain. For those of you who don't know anything about this movie (like I was before we watched it)--it has NOTHING to do with a witch anywhere in the movie for even 1 second. That is just the name of the particular mountain they are climbing. It is kind of a sci-fi movie which I HATE...but I really got into this movie and enjoyed it. It's quite unrealistic...but still very intersting and on-the-edge-of-my-seat. Grant liked it too. (Brooklyn went to church with my dad so she missed it).
Anyway, glad I got Plyo in since I ate kind of crazy. Did good for breakast and lunch (had my Progresso Light soup) but then ate left over carrot cake and ice cream for dessert. Regretted it--but thankfully, it's all gone now. I need to make a mental note to QUIT making or buying desserts! If they aren't in the house..I have no choice. If they are in the house...I can't resist.

Today is Thursday, Day 12, when I'm typing this. I am about to go to the gym for my 2 classes and then tonight when Matt gets home we will do Shoulders & Arms and Ab Ripper. I am not going to look ahead further than today---but for today---I am going to do my best to improve my eating. Ya'll ask me about it tomorrow and see if I stuck to my guns! K?!!

I saw that movie too. I love the Rock, he is so funny in his movies! I like that straight-faced humor coming from a big guy-it cracks me up (although actually he isn't that big height-wise, I stood next to a wax figure of him about 5 years ago and I was surprised-only about 5'9"!) anyway, movie was cute, but based on the previews I was hoping for more of that "comedy" they showed in the previews. oh well-they always show the good stuff first :)
