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.

Challenge? What challenge? Eeeeek!!

So, do you want me to tell you the truth? I have COMPLETELY forgotten the challenge the past 2 days. And when I say forgotten, I don't mean "put out of my mind" I mean seriously forgotten!
I've been eating good still, but it never even occurred to me all day yesterday to work out. I got up and played with the kids, made blueberry muffins with them and then we worked on making homemade Christmas cards. Then we got cleaned up and went Christmas shopping all afternoon. We came home, ate dinner and watch Christmas movies all evening and went to bed. This morning we got up super early, went to church, came home ate lunch, took naps, did some paperwork and then went to my parents for dinner and we just now got home and I sat down to check my e-mail and I was like OHHHH MYYYY GOSH!!!! I forgot to work out the past 2 days!

Oh well. Give me a B-, I guess. I sure didn't mean to not work out, it just completley slipped my mind--which is actually practically a miracle seeing as how I think about exercise just about constsantly. Anyway, tomorrow will be "back to work" with my classes at the gym! Hope you are all doing well and hanging in there!

This weekend was tough for me too! Got in my exercise but when out to eat three times... pretty sure that wasn't clean eating. You're still doing good and getting back on track is the main thing! Congrats!

As for as Shakeology... I love it because I totally noticed a difference in my energy level at work when I started taking it. It's a little pricey (even at the coach's price!) which is why I was looking for another greens substitute. And it might be all in my head, but I feel better having my Shakeology in the morning vs. cereal or something.

And those potato things are Okinawan purple sweet potatoes. They're about a third the size of a regular potato so perfect to steam, grab, and go!

I guess something was going around! I managed to get my workouts in today so that's good. It is so hard to focus sometimes! I think my post-Thanksgiving goal is going to be to lose 5 more pounds. I think I need to quantify it! Hope today went well for you!
