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.

Insanity Pictures

So...I have like 3 minutes to do this there won't be a lot of chit-chat. I took these pics of me during the 1st Insanity work out I ever did. It was nuts. I was pouring sweat. WHY I thought ya'll needed to see...I don't know...but if any of you are wondering if it's true what they say about "working out in a pool of your own sweat" is.

As for my "before" pics....I am going to post them but I am not going to post Matt's because I'm not sure if he'd want me to or not. (He's so much more modest than I am.) Anyway, I'll tell you the specific areas I am hoping to transform during this Insanity Journey. I'm hoping that by being so open and honest with you all---that this will hold me accountable!

First of all...there is that lower-tummy area--the part that stretches SO badly when you're pregnant--well, I'm sick of the blubber! I want to be able to wear a sports bra and shorts to work out and not have that flopping up and down. (sadly may need tummy tuck to really take care of it though---ie..may have to 'deal' with it.)

Secondly, the thigh issue. Ick. I don't want the "friction" when I walk-ESPECIALLY when I'm in my swimsuit.

Lastly there is the extra set of "butts" that I've got goin' on there. thanks! 2'll do.

So...there you have it. I'm not horribly dissatisfied with my body just the way it is right now...but if I'm going to go through this 60 days of PURE INSANITY, then I want to have some clearly defined goals for myself.
In terms of the scale-I am starting out at 134 and hoping to end up somewhere between 120-125.

Ps. Thanks to Rene for the cute suit! She gave it to me for my birthday!

***Okay-I've been trying to post this for DAYS and it won't let me upload pictures! I will try to post the pictures via a different host. Wish me luck!

Seriously-those pics crack me up! It never gets easier! I still feel like I'm going to die when I do these workouts, but then feel like I climbed mount everest when I'm done! Great sense of accomplishment-love it. Great job chica!!! :)
